Marvel Cinematic Universe stars, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson’s friendship goes way back, the duo met in 2004 on the set of The Perfect Score and have remained friends ever since. The celebrity pals went on to star in The Nanny Diaries and later reunited in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Chris and Scarlett have exceptional on-screen chemistry, it’s safe to assume that their friendship has contributed massively to that.
Despite knowing each other for close to two decades, the pair’s relationship has been purely platonic. Many people have wondered whether the two were ever more than friends, but it doesn’t appear so. Scarlett is currently engaged to Saturday Night Live Star Colin Jost while Chris doesn’t appear to be in a relationship at the moment.
Scarlett And Chris Met In 2004 On The Set Of The Perfect Score
Most people know Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans from their roles as Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, and Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The stars have both had long and successful acting careers before entering the MCU.
Long before the two ever donned their superhero suits and embarked on saving the world from ruin, they starred in two movies together.
Scarlet and Chris have known each other for 16 years. Having met on the set of the 2004 teen comedy The Perfect Score, the duo hit it off and have been fast friends ever since. It was the beginning of an amazing on and off-screen relationship.
In an interview with Variety, Scarlett spoke about working with Chris on The Perfect Score. “Our storylines don’t cross paths too much. We did have one scene where we had to sing together. I was talking to Chris about it the other day, actually. ” She further stated that, “Even then, there was an ease between us on screen.”
They would later collaborate again on The Nanny Diaries in 2007. In this one, they actually played a couple, and fans couldn’t help but notice their dynamic and on-screen chemistry.
Chris And Scarlett Think Of Each Other As Brother And Sister
The pair have built an enviable easy friendship over the years, many people have wondered whether Chris and Scarlett have ever considered pursuing a romantic relationship. It doesn’t seem like they have, because they think of each other as brother and sister. While Chris is reportedly single, Scarlett is engaged to Saturday Night Live host Colin Jost.
According to ScreenRant, Chris has mentioned in the past that Scarlet was like a sister to him. “She is a beautiful lady. She really got blessed. I love that girl, man. She’s like my sister. I’ve known her for 10 years. She’s just one of the smartest people I know.”
Scarlett seems to agree because she too revealed on more than one occasion that “Chris was like a brother to her”. They both share an admiration for each other and only have the best things to say about one another.
Back in 2014, Scarlet spoke to Parade about her friendship with Chris and how their chemistry translates on-screen.
“I’ve known Chris for 10 years and this is our fourth movie together. Even though the circumstances of our lives have changed and we’ve moved and our careers have evolved, he’s pretty much the same.”
“We have the same kind of rapport between us, the same short-hand, he’s just as goofy and earnest as he’s always been. He’s got a lot of humility to him and a great sense of humor. I think Marvel was lucky to have that history between us so they can exploit it for the film!”
