Thomas Jane & Anne Heche, both 50 years old, are in a relationship now

Thomas Jane and Anne Heche

I can literally go weeks and months without thinking about these two people, but sure, this is “gossip news.” These are photos of Thomas Jane and Anne Heche from 2010, when they posed together at a premiere event for HBO’s Hung, a series which went from 2009-2011. I never watched it. Was it good? During that time, Thomas Jane was married to Patricia Arquette (they have a daughter together) and Anne was married to James Tupper (they have a son together). In the years since the show ended, both of their marriages ended too. And now Anne Heche and Thomas Jane are together. Is that weird? It feels like it might be weird.

Actress Anne Heche and her former Hung costar Thomas Jane are dating. The pair, who recently opened up about their relationship in the German magazine Bunte, first sparked relationship rumors earlier this year. A source tells PEOPLE that the couple began dating this spring.

“They’ve been friends for so many years and they’re so like-minded that it’s an incredibly easy relationship,” the insider says. “They’re really supportive of each other and have a lot of fun — they’re definitely in love.”

Heche and Jane, both 50, were spotted attending a Tribeca Film Festival event together in early May. A source told PEOPLE at the time that they “arrived at the afterparty holding hands.” The two also attended the Sarasota Film Festival in Florida in April where Heche was honored with a Career Tribute Award.

Jane and Heche previously worked together on the HBO series Hung, which ran from 2009 to 2011, playing a divorced couple. Jane starred in the series as Ray Drecker, a struggling single father who resorts to prostitution in order to make ends meet.

The actors will also be reuniting on screen for their upcoming thriller film Hour of Lead, which follows the story of a husband and wife who will stop at nothing to find their missing daughter.

This reminds me a little bit of Tea Leoni getting together with Tim Daly – an age-appropriate actor couple getting together after their separate divorces and kids and drama and finding some kind of peaceful life together in a second or third or fourth marriage. I mean, I’ve never cared about Thomas Jane and I sort of dislike Anne Heche, but sure, they make sense as a couple and it’s fine. I always wondered if Thomas and Patricia Arquette had any drama towards the end of their marriage. And I also wonder if Thomas and Anne just happened for the first time this year, or if they were quietly doing some stuff years back. Who knows.

    Hung…was VERY, VERY GOOD!

    I’ve always liked her…

    I’ve ALWAYS liked him…


    • jennifer says:

      Me too times four! I forgot about Hung, but I watched it and loved it too. And I kinda love that they are actually together now lol

  2. TheOriginalMia says:

    Huh. I thought Anne & James were still together. Anne & Thomas look happy. Good for them.

  3. jules says:

    They certainly look good together…and like they were more than co-stars back then.

  4. Tiffany says:

    Anne likes to have her relationships be messy. I really think she is one of those people who gets bored when things are peaceful.

    • holly hobby says:

      Well for sure she likes dating her co-stars. The very married James Tupper left his wife for her when they were in that show together.

  5. Ani says:

    I loved her with James Tupper. The show they met on, Men in Trees, is one of my all time favorites, and such a comforting show to watch-I am actually watching it at the moment!

  6. perplexed says:

    She looks good. No opinion on her relationship, but she’s really taken care of her looks.

  7. Dani says:

    Hung was really good! Isn’t he the guy from that movie with Cameron Diaz where she crashes his wedding? I liked him in that (if that was him). I don’t have an opinion on Anne Heche but I could have sworn she dated Ellen? *I googled and she was in fact married to her?!

    • lucy2 says:

      Someone should remind Miley “people don’t understand my relationship” Cyrus.

      • HMC says:

        “The Sweetest Thing.” It was a cute movie.

      • Trashaddict says:

        “The Sweetest Thing” was when I developed my girl crush on Christina Applegate. She stole the show. That woman is a hoot.

  8. Jen says:

    Wasn’t there a lot of gossipy drama around her break up with Ellen? That’s the only reason this person’s name rings a bell for me.

    • Aenflex says:

      Yes she had severe emotional struggles and acting out back then.

    • minime says:

      That and then she cheated on her then husband (who she had cheated with when she was together with Ellen Degeneres) with her co-star from Men in Trees, James Tupper. So to me it looks like her MO. Bit too much of a serial cheater…

    • jennifer says:

      Wasn’t there some story about her breaking into someone’s house, high on ecstasy, when she was with Ellen? Maybe I’m getting her confused with someone else.

    • sassbr says:

      There was a Mad TV sketch about her being “crazy”. I remember a lot of bi-phobic comments, people didn’t really think she was bisexual or whatever she was identifying as with Ellen. She also had mental health issues and was sexually abused by her own father as an infant 🙁

      She had some messy relationships with her husband, whom she met on Ellen’s tour, and then she left that husband for someone else.

      I’ll remember her always as that weird casting in the Gus Van Sant remake of Psycho.

  9. BengalCat😻 says:

    They were in my brother’s bar here in Bama (I guess they were filming here?) and my bro said they were super nice to the locals and tipped well. They look great together!

  10. Meg says:

    I remember her in a David letterman interview criticizing an ex husband for asking for and receiving spousal support from her. It was so trashy. ‘all he does is walk to the mailbox everyday in his robe to collect the checks I send him’

    • holly hobby says:

      That would be the guy she left Ellen for. I somehow remember he came from a well off family. I think she highly exaggerated the spousal support.

  11. Mo says:

    From my experience, relationships like this tend to be: 1) shit almost went down back in the day, but didn’t; 2) meet up again and it’s all why didn’t we get together back then? 3) hook up; 4) Choose your own adventure: a) you now have the maturity for a better relationship; b) what was I thinking?

  12. sassbr says:

    Thomas Jane is so underrated. He could have had his own franchise-he was the original Punisher. Sometimes I look back at near misses of film success and it’s such a shame when the casting is excellent or the actor is very talented but the breakthrough project didn’t work for whatever reason (I’m specifically thinking of Anton Yelchin as Kyle Reese, the casting for Watchmen, Superman, etc.)

    • Darya says:

      He was great in The Mist. It’s one of my favourite horror films.

    • amilou says:

      I loved him in the fun killer shark flick, Deep Blue Sea. It was a pretty big hit at the time, and I thought he would surely be a really big deal after that. It didn’t really happen though, did it?

  13. Naddie says:

    People sleep on him. He killed it in 1922. He’s also gorgeous.

  14. eve says:

    I love Ann Hech and Tommy Lee Jones in that crazy movie Volcano. It my guilty pleasure on a lazy Saturday afternoon.

  15. Dizzy says:

    Whoa. I thought she was still with James Tupper. Well good for them, speaking as a woman in her fifties….it’s hard to find an age appropriate partner …or any partner

  16. Amelie says:

    Oh I remember watching a few episodes of Men In Trees but becoming more interested in the behind the scenes gossip when she left her ex-husband for her married costar James Tupper (by the way I don’t think they were ever married, they were just partners for a long time and had a kid together). She and her ex trash talked each other in the media, with her ex branding Anne as an unfit and crazy mother. She even lost custody of her first son at some point though I think she regained it.

    While I don’t remember she and Ellen dating as I was pretty young at the time, I do remember reading about the weird story after their breakup I discovered as an adult where she wandered for miles and ended up in some stranger’s house asking to take a shower and watch a movie. And also how she spoke an alien language. Anne Heche has always been a messy weirdo of a person.

    She’s also claimed she was sexually abused by her father which has been disputed by her mother and sister. I won’t say it’s not true but knowing Anne’s unstable background, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was something she believed happened but never actually did (and apparently she has expressed doubts about it happening to her sister). She is definitely someone who has lived a “colorful” life for lack of a better word.

  17. YeahRightSure says:

    She’s so pretty and he’s likeable and a pretty good actor. Randomly, he’s totally into alien conspiracy theories – quite a kooky or alternative-thought guy.

    I loved that series!
