A waifish blonde, Anne Heche (pronounced 'haytch') was still relatively unknown when she made headlines in April 1997 disclosing her relationship with comedienne Ellen DeGeneres. Almost immediately, there was speculation and questions about whether the actress' decision to reveal her lesbianism would adversely affect her career, particularly as…more


Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Anne: The therapists knew about my abuse. The therapists knew about the shame I was enduring... But the therapists never knew the extent of the world that I created to get out of the shame of my abuse.

    • Anne: I was raised to pretend.

    • Anne: (About shooting Psycho) What Norman Bates calls for is for an actor to be able to go into their insanity... Vince is one of the few people I think who's willing to go into that duplicity in himself, and that insanity, and say, 'You know what? Now I'll show it to you.' I think that we're going to love his Norman Bates, because he's showing you himself in ways that nobody else would have the courage to do. It's an amazing performance.

    • Anne: The whole shooting process of Psycho was amazing in that way, because I felt like I had been chosen to remake history.

    • Anne: He's the guy who is every woman's dream and the man who's every man's dream.

    • Anne: (About her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres) Ellen and I had a three and a half year relationship that ended sadly, not because we were both women, but because we both wanted different things for our lives.

    • Anne: This nonsense about my mother praying for me is really making me angry. My mother never approved of my relationship with Ellen. Her hatred for our relationship is one of the many things that ultimately led to my breaking off all communication with her.

    • Anne: And for anyone who ever thought that Ellen and I broke it off because of sexuality, you couldn't be more mistaken. And for anyone who thought my mother's prayers had anything to do with me marrying a man, forget it.

    • Anne: Vibrators. I think they are great. They keep you out of stupid sex. I'd pitch them to anybody.

    • Anne: I wanted to talk about stuff that people don't talk about so that maybe they would talk about it... So... maybe they could save themselves from going crazy.

    • Anne: It's important to talk about loving yourself and looking at your tragedies and the stuff that makes you grow.

    • Anne: We do not fall in love with the package of the person, we fall in love with the inside of a person.

    • Anne: It's my job, to create a fantasy.

    • Anne: Are we changing the idea of what beauty is? Let's hope so. I'm not the typical Hollywood beauty. Let's hope we're looking at the insides of people a little more.

    • Anne: And as a child, we have such a wonderful thing as children, that we can just make the best of everything, and say, Well, this must be what everybody else is experiencing, and I've got to make the best of it. You don't know that it's not good until you witness something that it seems better.

    • Anne: I've always kind of gone with my heart.

    • Anne: I'm always honest, whether I'm in the limelight or not.

    • Anne: I put a very high premium on honesty. What I learned from death is that if you don't accept your sexuality, it will kill you.

  • An okay actress.

    Anne Heche is definitely the type of an actress that most people don't like. She lives her life the way she wants and she's not afraid to show it to anyone. Her career is full of ups and downs, and her decisions surprised many people and many people hated her. I personally think Anne is quite original. OK, maybe she isn't the best person, but she's struggling through life just like every other star, trying to find her way in her world. She is human. She isn't perfect. No one is. But I definitely understand why people don't like her. It seems like she doesn't care much about it. That's the best way to act. Anne is original, beautiful and I can't wait to see how this actress will surprise us in the future.moreless

    Anne Heche, best known as Ellen DeGeneres' ex, is really a talented actress. In every role she really makes you believe that she actually is the character she's portraying. This sense of realism is what makes her really stand out above the masses of the rest of actresses today. My favorite movie of her's is "Milk Money."
