She received a perfunctory mention in (2015), where Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor playfully argued over whose girlfriend was superior.
(Thor insisted Jane was.) In honor of Jane's exit from the MCU, let's examine the state of the universe's big relationships.
The latest: Former “Entertainment Tonight” co-host turned musician John Tesh has confirmed that he and the talk show dynamo dated years ago.Tesh confirmed the tidbit to the New York Daily News after word got out that a new biography on Winfrey alleged the pair once lived together.In the new book “Oprah,” author Kitty Kelley claims Tesh and Winfrey moved in together during the 1970s while both were young reporters living and working in Nashville, Tennessee.Natalie Portman, who played the brilliant physicist Jane Foster (and love interest to Chris Hemsworth's Thor) in two films, made headlines this week by saying she is done with the MCU, as far as she knows.It's not a total surprise — The Oscar-winning actress isn't among the cast for the upcoming , would have broken ground as the first woman to direct a Marvel movie, and Portman had lobbied Marvel to hire the director.
All told, Jane and Thor's relationship was arguably the least compelling of the romantic pairings in the MCU.In (2011), the two spent just a weekend together, during half of which she suspected Thor had mental health issues before realizing he was an alien with a justifiable god complex."Oprah and I were cub reporters in Nashville nearly 40 years ago and we dated for a short time," Tesh told the paper.Neither he nor Winfrey have commented on whether they were live-in loves or if their relationship ended - as Kelley’s book claims - after Tesh left due to the "pressure" of being involved in an interracial romance.Over on “Entertainment Tonight,” Tesh’s former co-host, Mary Hart, has poked some fun at the story, reviewing clips of her visit several years ago with Tesh to the set of the Winfrey’s show in search of “clues” of a past love affair.The good guys (and gals) of the Marvel Cinematic Universe just can't win in love.
