“We have lost a bright light, a kind and most joyful soul, a loving mother, and a loyal friend. Anne will be deeply missed but she lives on through her beautiful sons, her iconic body of work, and her passionate advocacy,” Heche’s rep told Page Six. “Her bravery for always standing in her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.”
The movie star died due to severe injuries from a car accident.
She was declared brain dead on Thursday, August 11, 2022, by doctors. Heche never regained consciousness.
Heche remained in critical condition following the crash with her car on Friday, August 5, and slipped into a coma shortly afterwards.
She is survived by 20-year-old son Homer Laffoon and 13-year-old son Atlas Heche Tupper.
