20 Times Jane Was the Most Annoying Character on “Jane the Virgin”

It’s no secret that we love “Jane the Virgin” around here. Everything about the show makes for guilty-pleasure, comfort-food TV that we’re always excited to watch. Needless to say, we’re going to miss it a lot when it’s gone.

That being said, we don’t always love all of Jane Gloriana Villanueva’s actions. Although Jane is hard-working, honest, and kind, she can also be judgmental, hypocritical and, once in a while, self-centered. Like any great character on TV, Jane is multi-layered and complicated, which might be the reason why the show is so irresistible. Take a look below for 20 times Jane was the most frustrating character on “Jane the Virgin”.

1. When she looked down on Rafael for being rich.

We’ve never been a fan of how Jane equates wealth with immorality. For example, she gets upset when she founds out Rafael set up an estate plan for Mateo. “I don’t like her family’s attitude towards money,” says Reddit user u/Simba122504. “Money is not evil. People just do evil things for/with money. But money itself is good”.

2. When she had an emotional affair with Rafael when she was with Michael

We get that Jane had conflicted feelings about being in a relationship with Michael while unexpectedly having a child with another man, but that doesn’t give her an excuse to toe-the-line between co-parenting and romance with Rafael. Michael deserved better than that.

3. When she ran straight to Rafael after only a few hours after breaking up with Michael

We never understood how Jane could switch love interests so quickly. “She was with Michael for two years, prepared to marry him, then breaks it off,” says Reddit user u/soniamissaghi . “And two hours later she was over him and kissing Rafael???!?”.

4. When she was judgmental about Adam being bisexual

Jane’s reaction to Adam’s revelation that he was bisexual is one of the prime examples of how her judgmental nature negatively impacts her relationships. The fact that she had these out-dated beliefs about masculinity and sexuality was troubling. C’mon Jane–it’s 2019!

5. When she guilt-tripped Adam for moving to LA to follow his dreams

via CBS Television

A lot of viewers took issue with the way Jane reacted to Adam leaving Miami to accept a once-in-a-lifetime job offer in California. “[Adam] had been so supportive of her dreams, and she doesn’t want to be supportive of his,” said Reddit user u/kbaeisbae. “I understand that he said he wasn’t going to leave and then changed his mind…but I just hated the way Jane reacted to that”.

6. When she prioritized her parenting rules over Rafael’s

Jane is never more insufferable when she’s trying to dominate the parenting-dynamic between her and Rafael. When it comes to child-rearing, for Jane, it’s her way or the highway. There’s hardly any middle-ground.

7. When she was super pushy with Rafael about raising Mateo Catholic

From the beginning, Rafael always voiced his concerns about raising his son in any form of organized religion. Jane never seemed to take these concerns to heart, though, and strong-armed Rafael into agreeing that Mateo would be raised Catholic.

8. When she tried to force JR to like her (because she needs everyone to like her)

Jane’s Mary-Sue perfectionism was never more apparent than when she discovered that Petra’s girlfriend, JR (played by Rosario Dawson), didn’t vibe with her. Instead of letting sleeping dogs lie, Jane did everything in her power to force a friendship with her.

9. When she used Fabian for sex and then dumped him when he wanted something serious

We’ve always found it problematic how much Jane objectified pretty-boy Fabian. Not to mention, it’s hard to get over the fact that she tried to dump him when she finds out he was trying to wait to have sex. “When the shoe’s on the other foot, she struggles to accept Fabian’s choice and treat him as a person,” says Reddit user u/rrsn. “She sees him as beneath her”.

10. When Jane got really whiny when her college adviser criticized her writing

Jane had a habit of looking down on people who’s morals didn’t align with hers. But, when her English professor gave her a taste of her own medicine, she couldn’t handle it. “[Jane] judges everyone and finds them beneath her,” says u/frst91 on Reddit. “When Professor Donaldson judges her as a person and as a writer, she is frustrated and rude to her and over-defensive”.

11. When Jane criticized an amateur author’s writing in the writing group she just joined

via CBS Television

Jane was all-too-eager to criticize a fellow amateur author’s writing when she joined a writing group. While the rest of the group members offered positive feedback, Jane jumped the gun and critiqued where she should’ve complimented.

12. When she pursued Rafael after insisting she didn’t have feelings for him anymore

Reddit user u/bkandtherose describes Jane’s double-crossing perfectly here: “I was quite irritated by how she went home with the intention to jump in the shower with Rafael after trying to convince Petra that there was nothing and she wasn’t after Rafael. That was a really shitty thing to do considering her and Petra are family and do care for each other somehow”.

13. When she wouldn’t support her mother’s decisions regarding her own body when she was diagnosed with cancer

Paul Sarkis/The CW

Jane has always been a master meddler, but she went too far when she was trying to influence Xiomara’s plan of action for her cancer treatment. “The whole meddling judge-y ‘my Google research is better than your oncologist’ thing is getting pretty old for me,” said Reddit user u/mrsawinter.

14. When she bailed on her and Michael’s engagement party after making a big deal about it

Screenshot via Netflix

When Jane discovered that Michael’s parents weren’t her biggest fans, she went out of her way to insist that they attend their engagement party. She then proceeds to ghost on the party without much prompting and offers them very little explanation. “I’m still annoyed that Jane bailed on her own engagement party and was then angry that Michael’s parents were mad with her,” said Reddit user u/punkypizza.

15. When she looked down on Petra’s parenting style

Scott Everett White/The CW

When Jane became a mother, a whole new world opened up for her to judge other moms and compare her skills to theirs. For example, we couldn’t help but roll our eyes when Alba and Jane concluded that Petra wasn’t a “hands-on mom” because she forgets her children’s nap times.

16. When she considered writing plagiarized essays for money

via CBS Television Distribution

The fact that Jane was even considering writing a spoiled rich kid’s paper shows that her hard-line approach to ethics is a little more flexible when applied to her specific situations. We give her props for finally deciding against it, though.

17. When she babied Mateo to the degree where she fell short of disciplining him.

Scott Everett White/The CW

Loyal watchers of the show know that Mateo has behavioral problems and struggles to respect authority figures. Reddit user u/chelsiigc believes that “Jane needs to get off her high horse and realize that [Mateo] isn’t an angel”. “Petra, unlike Jane,” she says, “actually disciplines her kid”.

18. When she frowned upon accepting money from Rafael when she never had a problem accepting money from Rogelio

Screenshot via Youtube

Before Rafael lost all his money, Jane had a habit of making him feel bad for offering her money to make her day-to-day life easier. From an outsider’s perspective, it didn’t make sense. Mateo is Rafael’s kid, after all–why wouldn’t he want his child to have access to the best?

19. When she holds a grudge against Rafael for getting angry at her

Screenshot via Netflix

When Rafael is under a lot of pressure at work, he ends up lashing out on Jane in Season 1. Instead of accepting his apology, Jane chooses to cling to the mistake. “She makes this whole show of apologizing and expects the other person to just get over it, but when it’s the other way around, Jane holds a grudge!” says u/RealWitchyMermaid on Reddit.

20. When she callously rejected her mother’s parenting advice because she thought she knew better

via Giphy

When Jane is pregnant, coming to terms with how she’ll be a mother, and generally freaking out, Xiomara tries to reassure her that everything will be okay. Instead of accepting the advice, Jane turns around to criticize the way her mother raised her. It was a painful scene to watch.

Bella Thorne Is Making Her Directorial Debut With Porn Film On PornHub

Bella Thorne Is Making Her Directorial Debut With Porn Film On PornHub

Bella Thorne is having quite a year, and her latest big move involves a whole lot of Pornhub. The 21-year-old actress is launching into a whole new type of industry and is getting a lot of shocked responses. For those of you unfamiliar with her career, here’s a brief wrapup: While she’s been acting since she was a child — as a way to help provide for her family — Thorne has been seen in a slew of TV and film projects. Her big break came in 2010 as a co-star in the Disney Channel sitcom “Shake It Up,” alongside actress Zendaya. She has since gone on to big box office films and has also garnered a ton of attention for her personal life.

Well, things are going to get a lot more interesting for the Floridian star.

Bella Thorne has directed her first film, which is a porn movie, and will be available on Pornhub.com.

The film is titled “Her & Him” and takes inspiration from “Romeo & Juliet.” By no means, however, is this film a modern-day Shakespearean movie. Thorne is going all-in as a porn film. The film stars porn actors Small Hands and Abella Danger, and on Sept. 11 to Sept. 15, the film will be seen at The Oldenburg Film Festival in Germany and then be made available on Pornhub. “Her & Him” is part of Pornhub’s Visionaries Director’s Series, which includes movies by other celebs such as Brooke Candy and Young MA.

Thorne said she originally intended to do a scary holiday movie, but then had a change of heart.

“My vision originally actually was to make a Christmas horror movie, and instead I made a very beautiful, ethereal, neon type of vision,” Thorne said in the promotional video for the film. “Sometimes, you go into something thinking that you want something specific, and then you totally change your mind and don’t go with that idea at all.”

The film itself doesn’t necessarily fall into a typical porn category. Not that we’ve seen it, however, from the trailer only, the film has a music video aesthetic and not a high definition quality that you may expect. The actress went on to say that she felt lucky that Pornhub believed in her vision and wasn’t trepidatious about doing this film with her especially because other studio executives had turned down her movie idea. She said that she had shopped around her movie pitch for a long time but was getting turned down because they were “scared to make a movie like this one when it comes to dominance and submissive[ness] between a male and female and how this relationship can turn quite sour.”

So, what was it like filming a porn movie? Thorne said it was “interesting.

As this is her launch into directing movies, Bella Thorne is no stranger to the wild ongoings of a Hollywood set. Her catalog of films is quite extensive and includes “Amityville: The Awakening,” “Blended,” and “The Duff.” This process, however, was very different, mainly because there were people having sex. She said, “we had real-life f*cking on set which I had never shot before at all.” Well, that’s one takeaway.

People on social media definitely had things to say about this startling news.

“I don’t think Bella Thorne and Zendaya could’ve taken more opposite paths after Shake It Up,” another said. To those haters, the actress said, that just because they’re uncomfortable with porn doesn’t mean they have to put that stigma onto others.

For anyone that thinks Thorne is swaying toward a negative path, they should know she’s also an accomplished author.

Last month, Thorne released her seventh published book. This one is titled “The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray.” The book has only released a couple of weeks, and it’s already a best-seller. The book isn’t a work of fiction but rather a published compilation of essays and poem deals with her personal struggles, relationships, and life as a headline-making celebrity. She’s definitely making news lately.

The release of her porn film comes just a couple of months since someone tried to threaten her by releasing nude photos.

Thorne ended up releasing the images herself in a move she said would take power away from the person trying to exploit her. Thorne got an overwhelming amount of support from fans and celebs for being brave enough to go after her hacker and release the images on her own terms. However, actress and “The View” co-host, Whoopi Goldberg faced backlash after the Oscar-winning star shamed her for taking nude images of herself.

Check out the trailer for her new porn film “Her & Him,” below.

The ‘Jane The Virgin’ Cast Shared Their Final Goodbyes And We’re Not Crying, You’re Crying

The ‘Jane The Virgin’ Cast Shared Their Final Goodbyes And We’re Not Crying, You’re Crying

Last week marked the end of an era for many diehard “Jane the Virgin” fans. For the past five years and for the exactly 100 episodes, we’ve laughed, cried, and spent a lot of time getting to know the Villanueva family. Through the original CW show, we also became enthralled in the drama telenevolas many of us Latinx kids grew up watching with our families. JTV might have not been the most realistic portrayal of our personal lives or even real life for that matter, but at the root of it, the show focused on the importance of love, friendships, and family; it taught us lessons we’ll never forget.

 But most importantly, JTV’s Jane Villanueva made sure many of us saw ourselves represented through our television screen for the past five years. 

Ultimately, Jane Villanueva was us. She made us feel seen, heard, and she helped us navigate life as Latina women worthy of love and worthy of achieving the impossible.

The last and final chapter of Jane the Virgin, which aired earlier this week on the CW, was the fairytale ending we were all waiting for since. For seasons, devoted fans followed Jane Villanueva’s journey when she stepped off that bus and was artificially inseminated with Rafael Solano’s baby. Since then, characters have been killed, characters have been kidnapped, characters have died and then come back to life, Jane has written a book and then another, we’ve encountered and defeated many villains, and well, you know how novelas go. 

But on the last episode, there were no surprises. No deaths. No bad luck. Just pure bliss.

The cast of Jane the Virgin also shared heartfelt tributes to a show that’s also forever changed their lives. 

Justin Baldoni, aka Rafael Solano, posted so many sweet behind the scenes photos of him alongside the cast. 

The day after her 35th birthday and on the day of the series finale, Gina Rodriguez shared a heartfelt tribute to the show that brought us Jane Villanueva.

“We started shooting the first season of Jane in July 2014. A few days into shooting I turned 30 on set. Yesterday I turned 35. And today is the very last episodes, 99 and 100 airing of Jane The Virgin. Five years. Five years of love, laughter, growth, pain, surprises, deaths, new births and a shit ton of memories. To my warriors who have supported me from day one, Thank you. I am able to live out my dream career because of you and I will never stop making art to bring Joy and Laughter into your home/train ride/plane ride or classroom! Art is my savior. Art is what makes me feel like I can fly,” she wrote in her caption.

If you’re like me, and have been #TeamJafael since the beginning, Justin Baldoni’s tribute will make you cry.

“For the past five years you have welcomed us into your homes, apartments, dorm rooms…but more than that—so much more than that—you have welcomed us into your hearts,” Baldoni wrote. “This show has been magic because you all are magic. And there are not enough words in all the languages of the world to adequately express how deeply grateful I am. So I will just say thank you.”

Yael Grobglas, who portrayed Petra in JTV, posted footage of the final table read of the series finale.

In the video, Gina and Justin can be seen reciting their last lines of JTV ever, unable to hold back tears. We dare you NOT to cry. 

Grobglas also shared a photo with her alongside the other fierce women characters on the show. ” I’m so happy we got to end on our own terms unlike most shows and wrap things up at our own time but I’m still incredibly overwhelmed by this chapter ending. So people are asking me how I feel.. I don’t know,” she wrote.

Our favorite fictional mama, Xiomara, shared a video of her watching the series finale. We’ll miss you, Xo! 

Jaime Camil, the best fictional father and telenovela star that there ever was, also shared a heartfelt message to JTV fans on the night of the finale.

“100 episodes, 5 years, unlimited amount of feelings, indescribable friendships, overwhelming support, gratitude, joy, love and of course, the greatest fans. Thank you for giving us the privilege to entertain you. Your kind words mean everything,” Camil wrote in an Instagram caption. We’ll miss you forever, Rogelio de la Vega. 

Despite it being the final season of “Jane the Virgin,” it’s important to not forget that we’ll now be getting a spinoff! In case you forgot, Jane the Novela–which will be narrated by Gina Rodriguez–will follow the format of a American Horror Story definition of an anthology. This means it will be telling one complete story each episode like a traditional telenovela. 

Jennie Snyder Urman told PopSugar that if the show makes it to the second season, provided that it even gets picked up to be a series in the first place, we might get lucky and see other Jane the Virgin characters appear as well.

So this isn’t a goodbye, it’s hopefully a see you later for JTV fans.

“Don’t forget to enjoy the ride because every chapter comes to a close,” Gina Rodriguez says in Chapter 99, part of the two-part series finale. “So I have enjoyed the ride, things like this, they are winning the lottery. I will always thank Jane, the character.” 

We’ll never forget the 100 chapters Jane the Virgin brought us. *cries*
