Today, friends and family speak out in the wake of her death and remember her presence in their lives.

Yesterday, actress Anne Heche died.

Ellen DeGeneres.

DeGeneres and Heche dated for three years before breaking up in 2000, and in fact, Heche felt that her relationship with DeGeneres "destroyed her prospects as a leading woman." Their relationship becoming public was big news in the late '90s

As commented on by writer and director Ted Geoghegan.

James Tupper.

Another one of Heche's ex-partners, the two met while filming Men in Trees. Upon her passing, he posted a photo of her to his Instagram and captioned it "Love you forever." They had one son together named Atlas.

Marvel director James Gunn said that Heche's performance in the broadway show 'PROOF' was the "best acting performance I've seen in my life" before also wishing her peace.

Rosie O'Donnell.

O'Donnell posted a TikTok with a screenshot of a post saying Heche's prognosis was not good and that she wasn't expected to survive, captioning it "just so heartbreaking." This would be mere hours before her death.

Heche's oldest son, Homer, spoke to People about his mother's death, saying, "My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom."

May she rest in peace.
