‘Six Days, Seven Nights’ star Anne Heche, 53, and Peter Thomas Roth, 64, made headlines as they cozy up at an event hosted by Gallery Magazine to mark the opening of Galerie House of Art and Design in early August 2021 at the New York Fashion Week parties in September 2021, the duo were spotted romance in front of the cameras. “Peter and Anne met through mutual friends in the Hamptons and have been together for about eight weeks,” a source told US Weekly at the time.
However, a Heche representative told Page Six at the time, “Anne is single and enjoying making new friends!” On August 5, Heche was involved in a nasty car accident that reportedly left her with some severe burns. Heche crashed her car into a house, started a fire, suffered multiple burns and was eventually taken to a hospital. Heche’s ex-boyfriend and former co-star Thomas Jane didn’t take a moment to pay tribute to his ex-girlfriend, Heche. Jane told the Daily Mail that Heche is “stable and likely to pull through”.
“While Anne and I are no longer a unit, today’s tragic news was devastating for me and everyone who loves her. My heart goes out to Anne and her two sons. At the moment Anne is stable and expected to pull through. My thoughts and prayers are with Anne, one of the true talents of her generation. Thank goodness nobody was hurt,” Thomas Jane told the Daily Mail. Jane and Heche had known each other for more than a decade and had co-starred with Jane on the HBO series Hung as a divorced couple. At the end of 2019, the couple went public with their romance.
Heche made headlines back in the late 1990s when the actress went public with her relationship with famed talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, becoming one of the few LGBTQ couples in Hollywood at the time. The duo dated from 1997 to 2000 and were in a relationship for almost three and a half years.
Heche reportedly split from DeGeneres for cinematographer Coley Laffoon, whom she met on DeGeneres’ stand-up comedy tour in 2000, and married him on September 1, 2001. The former couple have a son named Homer. Laffoon filed for divorce on February 2, 2007 after five and a half years of marriage. The divorce was finalized on March 4, 2009.
After Heche and Laffoon split, the actress began a decade-long relationship with actor James Tupper. On December 5, 2008, Heche’s rep confirmed that the actress was pregnant with her first child, a son who was her second and his first.
Tupper and Heche split in 2018 after “sharing a great life together,” Anne said in a statement at the time. “Relationships change and grow; we take our time for that. We care deeply for each other and plan to continue raising our two beautiful boys in love and harmony.”
