Anne Heche Married, Children, Lesbian, Brother

Anne Heche has been through plenty of hardships in her life. One of the challenges she faced was the fall of a flying acting career. By the spring of 2000, her career was already in ashes.

Nevertheless, she rose from those ashes like a phoenix and soared towards the limitless height of her career.

Personal Life: Lesbian?

Anne Heche’s dating life has gone hand in hand with her career. When she was at the peak of her career in 1997, she had a lesbian relationship with Ellen DeGeneres. Sadly, her career took a significant turn towards downfall, and so did her relationship with Ellen. 

The couple broke up in 2000. Anne then suffered from what can only be described as mental instability.

When things were back to normal for Anne, she started dating cameraman Coley Laffoon in 2000- three months after breaking up with Ellen. The two first met while filming a comedy special for Ellen.

Shortly, the actress and her boyfriend got married in 2001. The husband and wife didn't take long to go the family way and welcomed son, Homer, a year later.

Dolorously, the relationship also went into ashes when Anne allegedly fell for a co-star James Tupper- known for Men In Trees. Her rumored romance didn't take long to break her marriage with Coley; he filed for divorce in 2007.

As per Anne's romance with James, it turned out to be true. The couple's union brought a son named Atlas into the world. Anne and James were even engaged at one point.

But the love wasn’t destined to have a happy ending. The couple broke up after a relationship of more than a decade in 2018.

Post the break-up, Anne moved on. In 2019, she revealed her dating relationship former Hung co-star Thomas Jane. The pair decided to augment their already strong friendship into a romantic affair in the spring of 2019.

In the past, Anne reportedly dated comedian Steve Martin and Fleetwood Mac singer Lindsey Buckingham.
