Actress Anne Heche faces long recovery from car crash
LOS ANGELES - Anne Heche remains hospitalized and in intensive care after a car she was driving crashed into a residence in Los Angeles on Friday and became engulfed in flames.
According to a statement from her representatives, “Anne is currently in stable condition.” “Her family and friends ask for your thoughts and prayers. We also ask to respect her privacy during this difficult time. Thank you.”
Heche suffered burn injuries when the Mini Cooper she was driving burst into flames, according to multiple published reports. TMZ broke the news of the accident Friday with a report that included overhead video of the accident scene. The occupant of the home was not hurt in the accident, which caused significant damage to the front of the small house, according to TMZ and CNN.
Heche first rose to fame on the soap opera "Another World," where she played the dual role of twins Vicky Hudson and Marley Love from 1987 to 1991 and earned a Daytime Emmy Award. She followed that with films like "Donnie Brasco," "Six Days Seven Nights," and "Wag the Dog."
Her romantic relationship with Ellen DeGeneres in the late '90s resulted in intense media attention, much to Heche's professional frustration. In a 2021 interview with Page Six, Heche said she felt "blacklisted" after going public with their relationship.
