“Anne Heche has been peacefully taken off life support,” a representative for her family told CNN Sunday night and later confirmed the actress’ death.

Hatch’s car crashed into a Los Angeles home and caught fire on August 5. After the crash, Heche suffered a “severe anoxic brain injury,” depriving his brain of oxygen among other serious injuries after the crash, his family and friends said in a statement to CNN.

Heche was an award-winning actress who appeared in films such as the 1998 remake of “Psycho” and the rom-com “Six Days and Seven Nights” opposite Harrison Ford. He also directed a segment in the 2000 HBO film “If These Walls Could Talk 2,” and in his 2001 memoir, he revealed his lifelong struggle with mental illness after being abused by his father.

In 1987, Heche made her TV debut on the soap opera “Another World,” a role for which she won a Daytime Emmy. After leaving the show, he began his film career appearing in notable films including “Donnie Brasco” and “Wag the Dog”.

When Heche and Ellen DeGeneres started dating in 1997 — around the same time DeGeneres came out in real life and on her eponymous sitcom — they quickly became one of the world’s most famous gay couples. The two divorced in 2000.

Last year, Heche told Page Six that her relationship with DeGeneres cost her the role, calling herself “patient zero for canceling culture.”

Still, he said, he considered himself “part of the change” that helped normalize same-sex relationships in mainstream culture.

“I’m a part of it,” she told Page Six. “It’s a badge of honor.”

In her 2001 memoir “Call Me Crazy,” she said she was sexually abused by her father as a child and suffered from mental illness for much of the first 30 years of her life. He told CNN’s Larry King in an interview that year that his personality split between himself and a personality he invented to cope with abuse as a child.

“I had to live a lot of life to get to where I am now,” he told King. “I had to face the truth and work through the shame, and I’m so grateful for every step I took. I don’t think I could have handled it sooner.”

In 2004, Heche appeared on Broadway in “Twentieth Century,” for which he was nominated for a Tony. In recent years, Heche has returned to television, appearing in series such as “The Brave,” “Quantico” and “Chicago PD.” In 2020, he competed on the 29th season of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Hatch’s Hollywood colleagues responded to news of his crash with support. Her former partner and “Men in Trees” co-star James Tupper, with whom she shares one of her two sons, wrote on Instagram: “Thoughts and prayers tonight for Anne Heche, this beautiful woman, actress and mother. We love you.”
