In 1998, Heche was named one of the most beautiful people in the world by People magazine.
Anne dated presenter Ellen DeGeneres for three years in the decade (between 1997 and 2000). In 1999, the actress announced her desire to marry Ellen, but the romance ended the following year.
In 2001, Heche married cinematographer Coleman “Coley” Laffoon, with whom she had their first child, Homer Heche Laffoon, born in 2002.
In 2009, Heche Atlas gave birth to Heche Tupper from her relationship with James Tupper. The couple spent 11 years together and split in 2018.
The actress returned to work just 8 days after giving birth to her daughter to film episodes of the series ‘Hung’.
In September 2001, the actress released her autobiography, Call Me Crazy, a book she wrote in 6 weeks.
In it she tells that she was sexually abused and talks about painful memories of the time.
“If I hadn’t been sexually abused as a child, I don’t know if I would have had the strength to stand up to Harvey and many others,” the actress said in 2018 when reporting that she was dropped from a movie for refusing to perform oral sex on Harvey Weinstein.
At the time, she said the producer showed her his penis, but the actress managed to escape from the room before he touched her.
