Anne Heche has just suffered major burns after being engaged in a terrible car accident in the Los Angeles area. The event occurred in the Mar Vista neighbourhood of the city, and it entailed her crashing her vehicle into a house. Prior to this, she had already been involved in a car accident in which she had smashed her blue Mini Cooper inside of a garage and then refused assistance from witnesses as she took off, only to crash again. She has received significant burns, but she is being intubated at the moment, and it is anticipated that she will survive.
Heche is a well-known name in the entertainment industry not just for her work as an actor in the United States, but also as a director and screenwriter. She rose to prominence early on in her career because to films such as “Donnie Brasco” (1997), in which she co-starred with Johnny Depp and Al Pacino. In addition, she had starring roles in a number of successful films, including “Volcano,” the horror picture “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” the action comedy film “Six Days, Seven Nights,” and the drama-thriller film “Return to Paradise.” Her friendship with Ellen DeGeneres, which began in 1997, contributed significantly to the rise of her fame. Between the two of them, things ran smoothly until the year 2000, when they made the decision to end their relationship. In spite of the fact that it could look like she’s had a life full of “rainbows and roses,” the reality is quite different. Let’s go into the turmoil that has been Heche’s life.
Troubled relationship with parents and death of siblings
Heche had a total of four siblings, but only Abigail is still with us now. Heche was abandoned by her sisters Susan, who passed away as a result of brain cancer, and Cynthia, who passed away at an early age due to a heart condition. Nathan, her brother, was killed in a vehicle accident just minutes before he was to graduate from high school. Heche is of the opinion that he killed himself, despite the fact that this is generally accepted to be the primary reason for his passing. Another reason why her relationship with her mother was irreparably broken at this point was because of this. Heche revealed this information in her autobiography, which she penned in 2001 and titled “Call Me Crazy.” She stated that she was infected with genital herpes when she was a baby. However, when she talked to her mother about it, her mother dismissed it by saying that it was just a diaper rash and she would not take her to the doctor.
These charges have been completely refuted by Heche’s family, including her mother Nancy and her sister Abigail. Outraged by these charges, Nancy reportedly told People in 2001, “I am trying to find a place for myself in this writing, a place where I as Anne’s mother do not feel violated or scandalised.” People said that Nancy’s comments were made at the time. Within the pages of this book, I can find no space for myself among the lies and blasphemies. Abigail, Heche’s sister, continues, “It is my opinion that my sister Anne truly believes, at this moment, what she has asserted about our father’s past behaviour; however, at the same time, I would like to point out that Anne, in the past, has expressed doubts herself about the accuracy of such memories. I believe that my sister Anne truly believes, at this moment, what she has asserted about our father’s past behaviour regarding our mother. My personal experience, as well as her own admissions of having doubts, lead me to assume that the recollections she has of our father are not accurate. And I can affirm unequivocally, despite Anne’s beliefs, that the allegation that our mother knew about such behaviour is completely wrong. I can say this despite the fact that Anne believes it. During an interview in 2009 with The Daily Telegraph, she admitted that it is unlikely that she will be able to mend her rift with her mother, and she called the prospect “quite far-fetched.”
Mental illness and drugs
Following the breakup with Ellen in the year 2000, Heche experienced a mental breakdown. When she broke up with her boyfriend 10 days later, on August 19, she went to the desert and knocked on the door of a stranger’s house. This event further complicated the mental anguish she was experiencing. She started in Los Angeles and drove all the way out to Cantua Creek, which is located outside of Fresno, California. There, she abandoned her SUV on the side of a sandy road. Before knocking on the door of a bewildered Araceli Campiz, who immediately recognised Heche, she went nearly one and a half miles wearing nothing but a bra and shorts. According to an article from that time that was published in People, Campiz was quoted as saying, “I was thinking, ‘Oh my God, we’re in the middle of nowhere,’ and she walks in.”
Campiz added that Heche “took off her Nikes and said she needed to take a shower,” to which she had no problems. Campiz said that Heche “took off her Nikes and said she needed to take a shower.” Campiz went on to describe how she had come to the conclusion that Heche was neither intoxicated, high, or under the influence of drugs. In spite of this, the actress eventually admitted that she had been using ecstasy. After a short while, Campiz started to feel concerned because Heche hadn’t called any of their loved ones or friends in at least a half an hour. According to a report that aired on KSEE-TV, Campiz ended up phoning the sheriff’s office, and when they arrived, Heche informed them that she was “God, and was going to take everyone back to heaven…in a spaceship.” Campiz’s call prompted the sheriff’s office to respond. As we speak, Heche is still in the hospital, where she is receiving treatment for the burns she sustained.
