Chris Evans has made no secret of the fact he used to have a big crush on Sandra Bullock – and now it seems his childhood dreams could be coming true.
While the pair are not yet dating, they are reportedly in the early stages of getting to know each other.
“They are not in a relationship, but they are definitely hanging out and are in the early getting-to-know-each-other phase,” a source told E! News. “They haven’t put a title on it, but they really like each other.”
Sandra, 49, and Chris, 32, were first linked in May when they were spotted dining out together with Chelsea Handler.
They were introduced at the February 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar party. Three months later, Chris told Playboy, “I used to be in love with Sandra Bullock when I was growing up. Sandy B was my girl.
“I remember seeing Speed when I was in seventh grade and just thinking, ‘That’s her.’”
Mum-of-one Sandra has been single since her 2010 divorce from Jesse James. Chris previously dated Minka Kelly, but that romance came to an end in October 2013.
Just recently, the Captain America star admitted he was ready to settle down.
“I want to get married, though. I want children – to me that”s the ultimate thing,” he told Glamour. “When you”re old and on your deathbed looking back at your life, it”s not going to be the films you”ve made or what you”ve accomplished, it”s the relationships you have.”
Chris added, “You”re survived by things that matter – the people you love and those who love you back.”
