’Tis the season when celebrity couples hang out with each other’s families.

In the case of Jenny Slate and Chris Evans, they don’t have too far to go. Slate made the short slog from her parents’ place in Milton to Sudbury, where Evans grew up.


Slate, best known for her role in the indie film “The Obvious Child” and as the voice of “Marcel the Shell With Shoes On,” began dating the Captain America actor last year. The couple broke up last spring but have since gotten back together.

Evans’s brother, former “One Life to Live” actor Scott Evans, posted a picture of himself with Slate on Instagram, writing: “Christmas with my favorite Jew!”
