Anne Heche

Thanks in part to her most recent film, Cedar Rapids, Anne Heche has managed once again to catch the public’s attention. This latest news break is less loony than her past headliners centered around her personal life.

It’s been a decade since her last big news grab when (after being with Ellen DeGeneres for three years) the couple split and the next day Heche knocked on the door of a home in Fresno, California. Dazed and scantily clad, Heche told the owners her SUV had broken down, asked to take a shower, and then made herself at home.

When the police arrived a short time later, Heche declared she was God and would take everyone back to heaven in her spaceship. Press reports at the time explained that her disorientation was the result of mental illness—fueled by the drug Ecstasy—stemming from childhood sexual abuse by her father, which led her to create an alter ego named Celestia. She speaks of her childhood trauma in her memoir, “Call Me Crazy.”

After her split with DeGeneres, Heche married cameraman Coley Laffoon and had a son, Homer. Nearly six years later, the couple split; after a long-running court battle over spousal and child support, the divorce was finalized in 2009. That same year Heche had another little boy with James Tupper, her co-star of “Men in Trees” TV series.

Heche’s career on TV and film began at eighteen when she was cast as evil twins Vicky and Marley on the television drama, “Another World” for which she won Day Time Emmy and Soap Opera Digest Awards.

Appearing in a few well known American films after her final taping of “Another World”, Heche worked alongside names such as Harrison Ford, Johnny Depp, and Tommy Lee Jones. Also this year she is due to appear in the move Rampart with Robin Wright, Steve Buscemi, and Sigourney Weaver.
