From the death of a sibling in a car accident to her history of mental illness and drugs


Anne Heche has just suffered severe burns after being involved in a horrific car accident in the Los Angeles area. The event happened in the city’s Mar Vista neighborhood and resulted in her vehicle crashing into a house. She was previously involved in a car accident in which she smashed her blue Mini Cooper in a garage and then refused help from witnesses when starting, only to fall again. She sustained severe burns but is currently being intubated and is expected to survive.

Heche is a household name in the entertainment industry not only for her work as an actress in the US, but also as a director and screenwriter. She rose to prominence early in her career for films such as Donnie Brasco (1997), in which she starred alongside Johnny Depp and Al Pacino. In addition, she has starred in a number of hit films, including Volcano, the horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer, the action comedy Six Days, Seven Nights, and the drama-thriller film Return to Paradise. Her friendship with Ellen DeGeneres, which began in 1997, was instrumental in the rise of her fame. Everything went smoothly between the two until they made the decision to end their relationship in 2000. Though it might seem like she’s had a life of “rainbows and roses,” the reality is very different. Let’s delve into the turmoil that shaped Heche’s life.


Troubled relationship with parents and death of siblings

Heche had four siblings in all, but only Abigail is with us now. Heche was abandoned by her sisters, Susan, who died of brain cancer, and Cynthia, who died early of a heart condition. Her brother Nathan died in a car accident just minutes before he graduated from high school. Heche thinks he killed himself, although this is widely believed to be the primary reason for his death. Another reason why her relationship with her mother was broken beyond repair at this point was this. Heche revealed this information in her autobiography, which she wrote in 2001, called Call Me Crazy. She said she contracted genital herpes when she was a baby. However, when she spoke to her mother about it, she dismissed it, saying it was just diaper rash and she wouldn’t take her to the doctor.

These allegations have been completely refuted by Heche’s family, including her mother, Nancy, and sister, Abigail. Outraged by these allegations, Nancy reportedly told People in 2001, “I’m trying to find a place for myself in this writing, a place where, as Anne’s mother, I don’t feel hurt or outraged.” People said that Nancy’s comments were made at the time. In the pages of this book I find no place for myself among the lies and blasphemies. Abigail, Heche’s sister, continues: “I think my sister Anne really believes what she has said about our father’s past behavior at this moment; At the same time, however, I would like to note that in the past Anne herself has expressed doubts about the veracity of such memories. I believe that at this moment my sister Anne really believes what she has said about our father’s past behavior towards our mother. My personal experience, as well as her own admission of doubt, lead me to believe that the memories she has of our father are not accurate. And I can confirm unequivocally, despite Anne’s conviction, that the claim that our mother knew of such behavior is utterly false. I can say that, although Anne believes it. During an interview with The Daily Telegraph in 2009, she admitted that she’s unlikely to be able to mend her rift with her mother, calling the prospect “pretty far-fetched”.


Mental Illness and Drugs

After splitting up with Ellen in 2000, Heche experienced a nervous breakdown. When she broke up with her boyfriend 10 days later, on August 19, she went into the desert and knocked on the door of a strange house. This event further complicated the mental anguish she was experiencing. She started in Los Angeles and went all the way to Cantua Creek, just outside of Fresno, California. There she left her SUV parked on the side of a dirt road. Before knocking on the door of a confused Araceli Campiz, whom Heche recognized immediately, she walked nearly a mile and a half, clad only in a bra and shorts. According to an article published in People around the time, Campiz was quoted as saying, “I was like, ‘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 a shower,” which she had no problem with. Campiz said Heche “took off her Nikes and said she needed a shower.” Campiz went on to describe how she came to the conclusion that Heche was not drunk, high or under the influence of drugs. Despite this, the actress eventually admitted to having used ecstasy. After a short while, Campiz began to worry because Heche hadn’t called any of her loved ones or friends for at least half an hour. According to a report aired on KSEE-TV, Campiz eventually called the sheriff’s office, and when they arrived, Heche informed them that she was “God and would 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 being treated for her burns.
