Anne Heche‘s life changed when she was dating with Ellen Degeneres. They began dating in 1997 and went separate ways in 2000. She says, “In 1997, I met Ellen DeGeneres at the Vanity Fair party and that was the night that changed my life forever”.
“My movie premiere for Volcano, I had told them that I was taking Ellen as my date and I was told if I took Ellen I would lose my Fox contract. At that moment, she took my hand and said, ‘Do what they say’ and I said, ‘No thanks.’ I took Ellen to the premiere and I was ushered out before the movie even ended and was told I was not allowed to go to my own after party for fear that they would get pictures of me with a woman.”
“She was warning me, ‘This is going to happen,’ “.
“I was in a relationship with Ellen DeGeneres for three-and-a-half years and the stigma attached to that relationship was so bad that I was fired from my multi-million dollar picture deal and I did not work in a studio picture for 10 years”.
