Anne Heche and Ellen DeGeneres Wiki – Anne Heche and Ellen DeGeneres Biography

Anne Heche’s memoir will shed light on her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres in the late 1990s, when being gay was less welcome than it is today. The couple were among the first openly gay couples in Hollywood, before splitting in 2000.

According to The Guardian, Start Publishing will publish Heche’s memoir ‘Call Me Anne’ in January. The 53-year-old star writes in her memoir: “I was labeled [sic] scandalous because I fell in love with a woman. He had never been with a woman before dating Ellen.”

Incident Detail

Heche, whose acting credits include “Donnie Brasco” and “Wag the Dog,” died Aug. 5 at age 53, a week after crashing her car into a house in Los Angeles. Heche suffered multiple burns in the accident and had to be carried on a stretcher.

According to the outlet, Heche said that Hollywood effectively blacklisted her because of her relationship with the talk show host. At the same time, Ellen shocked the industry by having her character on the sitcom ‘Ellen’ come out as gay. The couple dated between 1997 and 2000.

In the next book, Heche wrote: “Personally, I didn’t identify as a lesbian. I just fell in love! It was, to be clear, as strange to me as it is to anyone else. There were no words to describe how I felt.” The book is a sequel to his 2001 memoir ‘Call Me Crazy’.

Heche said, “Gay didn’t feel right, and straight didn’t feel right either. Alien might be the best option, he sometimes thought. What, why and how I fell in love with a person instead of the gender of her, I would have loved to have answered if someone had asked, but as I said before, no one did. I’m happy I was able to tell you in this book, once and for all.”

The book will be published by Start, an independent publisher based in Hoboken, New Jersey, who shared the excerpt with the Associated Press. Meanwhile, the book’s publisher, Jarred Weisfeld, told the Guardian that he had signed a deal with Heche in May 2022 and that she had submitted a manuscript of hers shortly before she passed away.

The book will contain details about having Harrison Ford as a mentor, along with stories about Alec Baldwin, Ivan Reitman, and Oliver Stone, among others. When Heche died, DeGeneres wrote on Twitter: “This is a sad day. I am sending Anne’s children, family and friends all my love.” In a podcast, Heche had talked about writing a memoir of her, which he promised would include “some of the truths” about her and DeGeneres.
