Early Life

Anne Heche was born Anne Celeste Heche on May 25, 1969, in Aurora, Ohio. She grew up with mother Nancy, father Donald, and older siblings Nathan, Abigail, and Susan; her sister Cynthia died of a heart defect at two months old before Heche was born. During Anne’s childhood, her family moved close to a dozen times. Her father was a choir director, and in a 2001 interview with Larry King, Heche stated, “I don’t think he made much on that a week. He said that he was involved in a business of gas and oil. And he said that until the day he died. But he never was involved in the business of gas and oil ever.” When Anne was 12, the family settled in New Jersey, and they lived in a bedroom in the home of a family from their church. Heche worked at a Swainton dinner theater to help her family save up enough money to move out.

In March 1983, Anne’s father died of AIDS at age 45. Heche has said that her father raped her from her infancy until she was 12 years old and that he gave her genital herpes. Three months after Donald’s death, Anne lost her 18-year-old brother, Nathan, after he reportedly fell asleep while driving and hit a tree. The family then relocated to Chicago, and Heche attended Francis W. Parker School. When she was 16 years old, Anne auditioned for the soap opera “As the World Turns” after an agent saw her in a school play. Though she was offered the job, Heche’s mother wanted her to graduate from high school first. Just before her 1987 graduation, she was offered the roles of Vicky Hudson and Marley Love on “Another World.”

Personal Life

Though most of Anne’s relationships have been with men (including legendary comedian Steve Martin), she famously dated comedian Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 to August 2000. Speaking years later on why her relationship with Ellen did not work out, Heche claimed:

I broke up with her because her goal was to have a lot of money. Mine was to find love, and hers was, “I want $60 billion,” Good, good luck. Our forks are never going to meet. I hope you like your money because that’s why I broke up with you! Do you like sitting on your piles of cash? Because guess what, it gets you exactly where you are.

Anne met cameraman Coleman “Coley” Laffoon while working on a documentary about DeGeneres, and they married on September 1, 2001. Heche and Laffoon welcomed son Homer on March 2, 2002. They divorced in March 2009. In December 2008, Anne’s representative confirmed that Heche and her “Men in Trees” co-star James Tupper were expecting a child, and their son Atlas was born on March 7, 2009. Anne and James spilt up in 2018.
