Anne Heche Biography

Anne Heche was born in Aurora, Ohio and is the youngest of five children, although three of her four siblings are now tragically deceased. Her father, Don Heche, was often unemployed and led a double life as a homosexual. She has described him as lazy, schizophrenic, and sexually deviant. Despite her father's homosexuality, Anne has claimed that he raped her on a regular basis from the time she was an infant until she was 12, giving her herpes. The experience drove her insane, leading her to create a fantasy world called the "Fourth Dimension" to make herself feel safe, and an alter ego named "Celestia," an alien from that world who could speak to God and was the half-sister of Jesus Christ.The Heches moved nine times before settling in Ocean City, New Jersey when Anne was 12. They were very poor, and at one point all lived together in a single bedroom of another family's house. To help make ends meet, Anne got a job as a performer in a local dinner theater. In March 1983, when Anne was 13, her father died of AIDS. Three months later, her brother Nathan committed suicide just days before his high school graduation. To escape the embarrassment of these two events, Anne's mother Nancy uprooted the family to Chicago. There, Anne attended the Francis W. Parker School and was active in theater. An agent saw Anne in a school play and was so impressed with her talent that he secured her an audition for the daytime soap opera "As the World Turns" (1956) in 1985 when she was 16. Anne was flown to the audition in New York and offered a job, but her mother felt it best that she finish high school first.Immediately after graduating from high school in 1987, Anne flew to New York again and was cast as good and evil twins on the daytime soap opera "Another World" (1964). The salaries weren't enough to live on, so she worked an evening job as a waitress. Anne left the cast of "Another World" in 1991 with the intention of enrolling in the Parsons School of Design, but changed her plans and decided to move to Los Angeles when she was offered a small part in the made-for-TV movie O Pioneers! (1992) (TV). Soon thereafter, she made her big-screen debut with a brief appearance in The Adventures of Huck Finn (1993). Anne worked constantly over the next two years with minor roles in obscure TV movies like Girls in Prison (1994) (TV) and Kingfish: A Story of Huey P. Long (1995) (TV). Her first substantial role was in a segment of the 1996 made-for-cable anthology film If These Walls Could Talk (1996) (TV), in which she gave an excellent performance as a college student who decides to have an abortion after becoming pregnant by a married professor.In 1997, Anne had supporting roles in the films Donnie Brasco (1997), Volcano (1997), I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997), and Wag the Dog (1997). Although none of the films were particularly successful, critics took notice of Anne's performances in each of them. That same year, out of nowhere, she entered into a same-sex relationship with the most famous lesbian in the world, Ellen DeGeneres. Literally overnight, the unknown actress suddenly became the subject of widespread controversy and criticism. Prior to this, Anne had only dated men, and many speculated that she was just experimenting and accused her of being a gold-digger. Meanwhile, she had just landed her first leading role in the big-budget romantic adventure Six Days Seven Nights (1998) with Harrison Ford, and there was a debate in the media about whether or not audiences would accept her playing Ford's love interest. The director, Ivan Reitman, said "I think it will do the movie some harm, and that makes me nervous. The great news about all this is that we hired a relatively unknown and now she's one of the most famous women in America." The film performed well at the box office when it came out in the summer of 1998, and Anne seemed to be a star-in-the-making. Immediately after, she had her second leading role (and her best role to date) in the exceptional drama Return to Paradise (1998) with Vince Vaughn. As a less publicized film, it did not do well at the box office and was overlooked for any major awards.Despite the commercial success of "Six Days Seven Nights" and the critical plaudits for "Return to Paradise," Anne couldn't get another leading role. Her agents told her this was because of the negative attention she was getting for her relationship with DeGeneres, and that she lost the career opportunities they had predicted for her. In the worst of timing, Anne's updated sexual preference had ruined her career prospects just as she seemed destined to become a major star. Her next appearances were supporting roles in the barely-seen, appalling remake of Psycho (1998), and the low-budget indies The Third Miracle (1999) and Auggie Rose (2000), which went straight to cable.In August 2000, Anne and DeGeneres broke up after three years together. A day after the split was announced, Anne drove to a rural area outside Fresno, parked her car along a dusty roadside and walked a mile and a half through the desert before showing up at the doorstep of a stranger's ranch house. High on ecstasy and wearing only a bra and shorts, Anne asked the home's resident if she could use their shower. The resident obliged, then Anne plunked down in the living room and said she wanted to watch a movie, but the VCR was broken. When Anne showed no sign of leaving after half an hour had passed, the resident became uneasy and called the Fresno County sheriff's department. According to the police report, Anne told officers that she was "God, and was going to take everyone back to heaven in a spaceship." The deputies summoned an ambulance, which took Anne to Fresno's University Medical Center, where she was admitted to the psychiatric unit and released after a few hours. Two days after that, Anne flew to Toronto to begin filming John Q (2002). It was only a supporting role, and the film wasn't released until 2002.By the end of 2000, Anne was in a serious relationship with Coleman 'Coley' Laffoon, a cameraman she'd met on DeGeneres' summer comedy tour and started dating two weeks after the breakup. In early 2001, Anne had a recurring guest role on the TV sitcom "Ally McBeal" (1997) and got a small part in the straight-to-video film Prozac Nation (2001). Later that year, she published an autobiography titled "Call Me Crazy," in which she recalled her horrifying childhood and stated that she was insane for the first 31 years of her life, until the incident in Fresno snapped her out of it and put her alter-ego behind her. Anne also wrote about how she became estranged from her mother Nancy upon confronting her about the sexual abuse she endured during her infancy and childhood. Since her husband's death from AIDS, Nancy Heche has become a Christian therapist and motivational speaker who lectures around the country encouraging gays to convert to straightness. Anne describes her mother as the epitome of denial, and they remain estranged. The release of "Call Me Crazy" coincided with the 9/11 attacks, and the book did not sell well.Laffoon and a pregnant Anne married on September 1, 2001, and welcomed son Homer on March 2, 2002. Four months later, Anne was back to work, starring in a stage production of the critically acclaimed drama "Proof" on Broadway. In 2004, she was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in another Broadway play called "Twentieth Century." Also that year, she had supporting roles in the independent film Birth (2004) and the TV movie Gracie's Choice (2004) (TV), followed by a lead role in the TV movie The Dead Will Tell (2004) (TV). In 2005, Anne had recurring guest roles on the television shows "Everwood" (2002) and "Nip/Tuck" (2003), and filmed a pilot called True (2005) (TV), which never aired. She had lead roles in two more TV movies, the Hallmark Christmas drama Silver Bells (2005) (TV) and the Lifetime thriller Fatal Desire (2006) (TV), as well as appearing in a few straight-to-video features such as Sexual Life (2005).In 2006, Anne turned to television full-time by starring in her own primetime series: "Men in Trees" (2006) was a delightful comedy-drama in which she played Marin Frist, a New York relationship coach who, after finding out her fiancée has been cheating on her, moves to a small town in Alaska to get a new start, where the ratio of men to women is 10 to 1. The series, which was shot entirely on location in Vancouver, Canada, was well-received by both critics and audiences during its first season. Anne's love interest on the show was played by Canadian actor James Tupper, and they soon began an affair, during which she decided to leave her marriage. Laffoon filed for divorce in February 2007, and a bitter court battle ensued with nasty accusations flying from both sides. Laffoon claimed that Anne was still insane and deemed her an unfit parent, while Anne insisted that he was a deadbeat who stayed home all day playing video games and watching pornography. The judge granted Laffoon primary custody of their son Homer since Anne had to be in Canada nine months out of the year for the filming of "Men in Trees." However, in May 2008, following a hiatus due to the writer's strike, the show was canceled after 36 episodes, much to the dismay of many fans. Following the cancellation, Anne stated in court papers that she was broke and could no longer afford to pay the ridiculous monthly installments of $15,000 in child support. Ever resilient, Anne sold the Vancouver home that she'd moved into with James Tupper and took a role in the low-budget Canadian film Toxic Skies (2008) to pay off her debts. As she waited for her divorce to be finalized, Anne announced she was pregnant with Tupper's child. She finally got a divorce from Laffoon three days before giving birth, and a court order was issued requiring the former couple to hire a "parenting coordinator" to manage their relationships with Homer. Anne's second son, Atlas Heche Tupper, was born on March 7, 2009.With another concurrence of career disappointment and personal milestones behind her, Anne went looking for work. She got a featured role in the independent film Spread (2009), in which she had a number of explicit sex scenes with Ashton Kutcher. Then, she joined the cast of the little-watched cable TV series "Hung" (2009) as the ex-wife of the main character, a male prostitute played by Thomas Jane. Though the part was well beneath her talents, Anne was just happy to be getting work. She landed a supporting role in the mainstream comedy The Other Guys (2010), but the majority of her performance was cut and she ended up only being in the film for a matter of seconds, so briefly that her name didn't even appear in the credits. Her next role was in the indie comedy Cedar Rapids (2011). Although she earned rave reviews for her funny performance, it was just an independent film and did nothing for her career. In December 2011, "Hung" was canceled after 30 episodes and Anne signed with a new agency. Only time will tell if this extremely underused, one-of-a-kind actress will get another high-profile film role and become the big Hollywood star that she should be.
