More often than not, tabloid dating rumors are just that – tabloid dating rumors. But when it comes to Sandra Bullock and Chris Evans, we have legitimate outlets [US Weekly, E!, even People] claiming that Sandra and Chris are dating. So we already know this isn’t just another case of tabloid wish fulfillment, but Sandra’s understandably wary of going public with the relationship already.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sandra jokingly dismissed the rumors when asked about them, stating, “You guys are a little behind. We’ve since married and it started breaking apart, so we separated… We’re going to remain friends and share responsibility of the farm animals we’ve taken on, because you just can’t abandon the animals.”
Well, at least she has a good sense of humor about it? Other celebrities could stand to learn a lesson or two from Sandy here, especially when asked probing and intrusive questions by the media. Sandra didn’t necessarily deny the rumors, which would be outright lying, but she also didn’t give them any weight. And honestly, it’s understandable that she would want to play this close to the chest. It’s been years since the Jesse James scandal, but I don’t think Sandra’s ever fully gotten over it – and really, how could she? Her husband was cheating on her for so many years with a series of different women, and she had no idea.
This Chris thing is the closest she’s come to getting back in a serious relationship, despite the tabloids’ attempts to link her to George Clooney. And besides, Chris has always been open about his admiration for Sandra Bullock, and he’s infinitely better than that piece of scum Jesse James. We can only hope that the two work things out and start making public appearances together, if only giving us reasons to squeal over them dating.
