Mostly Credited As: Anne Heche Birth Name: Anne Celeste Heche Date Of Birth: May 25, 1969 (Age 47) Country Of Birth: USA Birth Place: Aurora, Ohio Height: 5' 5" (1.65 m)
Actress who is just as famous for her tumultuous off-screen private life than for anything she has done on-screen. Heche was an unknown actress best known for her stint on the daytime drama Another World when she began a three and a half year lesbian relationship with comic Ellen DeGeneres. This relationship increased Heche's visibility and she began receiving better film roles which many credited to her high profile relationship with DeGeneres instead of her talent. But her career took a nosedive and still hasn't really recovered following a bitter break-up with DeGeneres and several incidents which led to Heche spending some time in a mental institution. She married and had a child but this didn't last and a recurring role on the WB drama Everwood failed to re-ignite her career.
She made her professional acting debut at the age of 18 playing “Marley Love Hudson McKinnon (aka Marnie Stone) #2” in the weekly TV Soap Drama series Another World in 1987 and she continued to play the role until 1991. In 1999 Anne announced to the world that she was going to marry actress/comedian Ellen DeGeneres if and when Vermont legalized gay marriages. In the year 2000 Anne and Ellen split up after living together for 3 ½ years. On 1 September 2001 she married actor and camera operator “Coleman 'Coley' Laffoon”. Three days after her marriage on 4 September 2001 her autobiography that she claims took her only 6 days to write titled Call Me Crazy was released to the public. On 2 March 2002 Anne and her husband Coley had their very first baby and they named him “Homer Heche Laffoon”. Anne is probably most remembered for playing the character “Amanda Hayes” in 10 separate episodes of the weekly TV Drama series “Everwood” between 2004 and 2005.
