'The hardest thing to reconcile is that just because you have good intentions, doesn’t mean it’s your time to have a voice,' Evans, 36, told writer Reggie Ugwu of the Times.
The couple made their debut at the New York premiere of The Secret Life of Pets in 2016.
But they split in by February 2017.
Come October 2017 they were giving their romance another try.

But it looks like they have not resolved what bothers them. One problem may be his thriving superhero film career. He plays Steve Rogers and Captain America in the Marvels Comics movies.
Just last year, however, Jenny had wonderful things to say about the Massachusetts native: 'I first really liked Chris as a person because he is so unpretentious. He is a straight-up 35-year-old man who wants to play [board] games. That’s it. I was like, "I’d better not discount this, because this is purity."'
She continued: 'What’s the same about us is not just that we’re from Massachusetts, which was such a delight, but Chris is truly one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, to the point where sometimes I would look at him and it would kind of break my heart.

'He’s really vulnerable, and he’s really straightforward. He’s like primary colors. He has beautiful, big, strong emotions, and he’s really sure of them. It’s just wonderful to be around. His heart is probably golden-colored, if you could paint it.'
They were seen together again in the fall as Jenny helped Chris look for a new apartment in Tribeca, NYC.
And they were spotted getting dinner together in Atlanta, Georgia in October.
'[They were] laughing. He reached across and touched her arm a couple of times. They seemed like normal people on a date,' a source told the Us Weekly.
The onlooker claimed the two 'seemed like a couple'.

They also had a flirty Twitter exchange after the sighting that sent fans into a frenzy.
Chris and Jenny played each other's love interests in the film Gifted, and became romantically involved in real life.
It was a relationship that even took Jenny, who started dating Chris after splitting from husband Dean Fleischer-Camp, by surprise.
It's a relationship Jenny says took her by surprise.

'To be quite honest, I didn't think I was his type,' she told Vulture. 'Eventually, when it was like, ''Oh, you have these feelings for me?,'' I was looking around like, ''Is this a prank?'' I mean, I understand why I think I'm beautiful, but if you've had a certain lifestyle and I'm a very, very different type of person — I don't want to be an experiment.'
Chris also opened up about his past love and claimed he's never had a bad breakup.
He told Elle Magazine: 'It's very rare. But I've had no bad breakups in my life. Typically, if I see an ex, I give a big hug, and it's wonderful to catch up'.
Jenny was previously married from 2012 to 2016 to Dean.
Meanwhile Chris may not be returning to The Avengers franchise as he told the New York Times: 'You want to get off the train before they push you off.'
His contract is also believed to run out after April 27th's Avengers: Infinity War.
