Is Captain America’s Chris Evans hoping to live long and prosper with Star Trek’s Alice Eve? Or did the attractive co-stars just have dinner together as friends/colleagues?

In late October, it was revealed that Chris and Minka Kelly had broken up — again. At the time, Chris was already in New York City working on his film 1:30 Train. He's directing the romantic movie and also co-starring, alongside Alice.

An eyewitness told Us Weekly that Chris and Alice were "definitely lovey dovey" when seen out at dinner together on December 14 at John's Italian Restaurant in NYC. You can see a photo on Us's site, with Chris' arm around Alice's shoulders. As the witness said, it looks like he's consoling her, so it's not exactly the most romantic moment. It’s also weirdly voyeuristic to even be seeing them through the restaurant window.

Anyway, Us says their film is about two strangers who meet and fall in love over the course of one night. Sometimes when actors play a couple on screen, feelings develop in real life too. It's too soon to say if that's the case with these two, but maybe.

The two reportedly left the restaurant separately but got into the same car, then drove away.

Chris, 32, may be too busy for romance, whether he wants one with Alice or not. His movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in post-production and he's in pre-production on The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

British Alice, 31, was recently seen stripping down opposite one of the other blond Chris action stars, Chris Pine, in Star Trek Into Darkness.

Do you think Chris and Alice would make a cute couple?
