Anne Heche MR Skin
Anne Heche was one of the sexiest actors to hit the scene in the 90s. With her large breasts and flawless nips, she was an absolute beauty! Her nude-filled movies such as Girls in Prison (1994), Pie in the Sky (1995) and The Juror (1996) cemented her place as a leading indie darling on both big and small screens into the 2000s – long after many had passed!
She starred in several dramatic TV series such as Men in Trees, Hung and Nip/Tuck. Additionally, she directed her own movies, including a segment featured in HBO anthology film If These Walls Could Talk 2 (2000).
Her acting career spanned three decades, earning her numerous awards and accolades for her work. In 1992, she won a Daytime Emmy for her role on the soap opera Another World and two years later she was nominated for an Emmy for portraying a high school girl in I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997).
Heche began her career in theater as a child, eventually moving onto TV and film. She appeared in several Los Angeles theater productions such as “Us & Them” and a stage version of James M. Cain’s story Dead Man. Additionally, she frequently visited The View and Ellen DeGeneres Show to share her talents.
In the late 1990s, Heche starred in several films such as Volcano (1997), I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997, co-starring Jennifer Love Hewitt and Sarah Michelle Gellar), and Six Days, Seven Nights. Additionally, she made an impactful performance as The Juror (1996) which followed a woman’s fight for justice.
She experienced many scandalous personal issues throughout her career. She dated comedian Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 to 2000 and after they split, suffered a psychotic breakdown which culminated in her appearing at a rural ranch house outside Fresno, California and proclaiming herself to be God who would take everyone to heaven in a spaceship.
She has written that she was sexually abused by her father, who she claims had an affair with her mother when she was a child. As a result, Heche eventually turned to drinking and drugs in order to cope with this traumatic upbringing. Additionally, director Harvey Weinstein asked her for oral sex on him during Volcano filming while Cammell sexually harassed her during Wild Side (1996) filming.
Heche was fearful when it came time to be more open about her sexuality, fearing that it might cost her career. Her agents might not want to work with her if it was known she was gay, and she also worried she might be compared to Jodie Foster who came out at the Golden Globes in 2013.
In her new memoir, Call Me Anne, Heche addresses these topics and more. She recounts her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres, the abuse she endured from directors Harvey Weinstein and Donald Cammell, how she overcame childhood trauma, as well as working with Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford. Through these experiences she has drawn lessons that shape how she views sexuality and identity today.
