Anne was born to Donald Joseph Heche and Nancy Heche. She was raised in a family of five children. During her childhood, her family relocated eleven times, at one point settling in an Amish neighborhood.

At the age of twelve, the family moved to Ocean City, New Jersey. She started working at a dinner theater in Swainton because of the family’s poor financial situation.

Heche’s 45-year-old father passed away on March 3, 1983 from HIV/AIDS, which she thought he acquired from a homosexual lover. Her 18-year-old brother Nathan also perished in a car accident three months after her father’s death.

Anne Heche Health Issues

According to Anne, she was ‘crazy’ in the first 31 years of her life and she claimed that being sexually molested by her father as a kid and infant was what caused this.

In a series of nationally televised appearances, Anne claimed that in order to feel secure, she invented the “Fourth Dimension” and had connections with extraterrestrial life.

She also claimed to have an alter ego. She later claimed that she had overcome her mental health issues, after the Cantua Creek incident, which had reduced her alter ego.
