Ellen DeGeneres’ ex-girlfriend, Anne Heche, has nothing but wonderful things to say about the comedian.
While speaking with Mr Warburton Magazine, Anne Heche said that she doesn’t have any regrets following her split from DeGeneres.
“Our time was a beautiful part of my life and one that I wear with honor. I was a part of a revolution that created social change, and I could not have done that without falling in love with her,” she gushed.
Anne Heche reacts to Ellen DeGeneres criticisms
Heche revealed that she hasn’t been in contact with DeGeneres for quite some time. But she still decided to show her support for her ex-girlfriend amid the criticisms.
“I haven’t spoken to Ellen in years. I’d listen to the people who have. If I’m standing someplace and I don’t like what’s going on there and I stay there, it’s my fault. So, what are the actions that got me there and why can’t I get out of it easily if that’s not something that I want to be engaged in? Ellen is standing where she walks, and that is hers to continue that journey,” she said.
Anne Heche, Ellen DeGeneres fired after going out publicly
Years ago, Heche and DeGeneres made headlines after they confirmed their relationship following the latter’s coming out. However, their decision to make their relationship public landed them in hot water.
During a previous interview, Anne Heche said that her decision to bring DeGeneres as her date to a movie premiere cost her job. 20th Century Fox cut ties with the actress shortly after the outing.
“I took Ellen, we were told that my contract for Fox would be [ended] and I would be fired. And that the movie that I had just met Harrison Ford on wouldn’t hire me. We went to the premiere – these are the stories that I know people don’t know — we went to the premiere, we were tapped on the shoulder, put into her limo in the third act, and told that we couldn’t have pictures of us taken at the press junket. And both she and I were fired that week,” she said.
Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi love story
DeGeneres and Heche were still together when the former met Portia de Rossi for the first time. But they have already called it quits when DeGeneres and de Rossi saw each other again.
Back then, the comedian was already with Alexandra Hedison. While speaking with People, DeGeneres said that it was a struggle because she had to break up with Hedison so she could be with de Rossi.
As for DeGeneres and Anne Heche, it is unclear if the two are friends.
