Anne Heche Net Worth $8 Million


Heche’s childhood years weren’t a happy time; due to a poor financial situation, her family moved frequently. As her father was a Baptist minister, Heche was raised in conservative religious surroundings. However, it was later revealed that her father was a homosexual, as well as that he sexually abused Heche during her childhood. The family had little income and Heche was forced to search for work even though she was only 12 years old. Hence she started to work in a dinner theater in New Jersey. Her father died of AIDS the following year, and several months after his death, Heche’s brother died in a car accident. The family then moved to Chicago, where Heche attended the St. Patrick High School, being very active in school theater productions, at one of which an agent noticed her and invited her to audition for the soap opera “As the World Turns”. Although the young actress got the job, she decided to follow her mother’s advice, turn down the offer and finish her school first.

Two years later, prior to her high-school graduation, Heche was offered a part in the 1964 NBC soap opera “Another World”. Although her mother was again against it, Heche went to New York, took the role and started her professional acting career. Her part in “Another World” brought her a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series in 1991. The same year she appeared in an episode of “Murphy Brown”, and as her talent became recognized, Heche’s net worth started to rise. She went on to enter the movie industry in 1992, appearing in the movie “O Pioneers!”, and the following year in the feature films “The Adventures of Huck Finn” and “An Ambush of Ghosts”. After several movie appearances, she came to be cast in bigger roles, such as in 1996 “The Juror” and “Walking and Talking”. A performance that received extremely high praise was her role as the suffering wife of a FBI agent in the 1997 movie “Donnie Brasco”. The same year she appeared in the movies “Volcano”, “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and a political satire “Wag the Dog”. The following year saw Heche in the leading roles in the movies “Six Days Seven Nights” and “Return to Paradise”. All this considerably added to her net worth.

In the early 2000s Heche went on to appear in a number of movies, including the popular Denzel Washington’s movie “John Q.”. She also landed a role in the series “Ally McBeal”, “Proof” and “Nip/Tuck”, among other. In 2006 Heche started to work on her own series “Men in Trees”, but the series was canceled in 2008 due to the writer’s strike. In 2012 she had a leading role in the comedy “That’s What She Said”, and in 2014 she appeared in the series “Dig”. Heche’s extensive television and movie work has established the actress a worldwide fame and a significant wealth.

The personal life of the successful actress has been quite interesting. Heche made headlines in 1997 by revealing her relationship with comedian Ellen DeGeneres. Their break-up in 2000 became the subject of extensive media interest. While being on DeGeneres’ stand-up comedy tour prior to their break up, Heche met camerman Coleman Laffoon whom she married in 2001, and they have a son together. In 2007, after filing for divorce, Laffoon asked for primary custody of their child, accusing the actress of being an unfit parent who displays bizzare behavior, and refusing to take professional help. Heche has been previously known for having psychological problems, which, as she reported, have been caused by the sexual abuse she suffered as a child at the hands of her father. The couple soon became involved in a public child custody battle. Eventually, Heche lost custody, and was obliged to pay $14, 978 monthly for child support. She later started a relationship with her co-star James Tupper with whom she has a son.
