"Thor" franchise star Jaimie Alexander is undoubtedly a talented actress. Still, not much is known about her dramatic love life, which involves a high profile failed engagement with actor Peter Facinelli. Here are all the juicy details about her love life.

In Hollywood, tales of called-off engagements, broken relationships, and marriages, are more common than happy endings, unless you are watching a Disney fairytale flick. But in reality, relationships are difficult to maintain amidst all the glitz and glam that is associated with Hollywood.

Talented actress Jaimie Alexander fits seamlessly into this category. Jaimie Alexander's dating history over the last seven years, includes a high-profile failed engagement, and two other serious relationships. 

The story gets more interesting when you consider the fact that she was in a relationship with Peter Facinelli for nearly half that period.

Jaimie has enjoyed success in her career, steadily building her profile since she made her acting debut as Hanna Thompson in the low-budget award-winning movie "The Other Side."

JAIMIE ALEXANDER'S COMPLICATED LOVE LIFE

Facinelli filed for divorce in May 2012, citing irreconcilable differences, and the divorce was finalized in June 2013. Jaimie and Facinelli were first linked together in November 2012, and after dating for nearly three years, the pair got engaged in 2015. 

In what came as a surprise to most people, the former couple decided to call off their engagement barely a year after they announced they were set to wed. Jaimie's reps released a statement saying:

"Due to conflicting family and work commitments on opposite coasts, and after much consideration, Peter and Jaimie have chosen to part ways amicable and remain good friends."

After Jaimie's failed engagement with Facinelli, the "Blindspot" star quickly moved on to stuntman Airon Armstrong. The pair were first linked together on September 17, 2016, when they were spotted arm in arm strolling through the streets of Manhattan. 

The pair met on the set of "Blindspot," where Jaimie stars as Jane Doe and Airon choreographs most of the fight scenes and also serves as the stunts double of actor Sullivan Stapleton.

In 2017, the actress was spotted locking lips with her ex-beau at Studio City farmer's market, but sadly things didn't work out between them, and today Jaimie is in a happy relationship with her boyfriend, Tom Pelphrey.

“When I get out of the bag in the pilot, I only have a sticker over my lady parts. It’s full-on frontal nudity, but you can’t see the dimensions of any curves because of how dense the tattoos are.”

During a 2016 interview, the delectable actress claimed that when she read the script for the series, she knew the character of Jane Doe was written for her.
