Following the fiery car crash which ultimately took Heche's life, DeGenres tweeted her condolences writing, "This is a sad day. I’m sending Anne’s children, family and friends all of my love."
The Ellen DeGeneres Show star was also caught my photographers who asked her about Heche while she was fighting for her life while in a coma. “I don’t want anyone to be hurt. I wouldn’t know [how she’s doing]," DeGeneres shortly replied.
Prior to the Spread actress' tragic death, she was quite candid about how her romance with the media mogul ended up getting her fired from jobs in the 1990's after the two made their red carpet debut.
"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," Heche revealed in a 2018 interview. "And 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."
“I warned Portia,” the actress said. “Portia even asked me about Ellen before she came to my wedding, and Portia even said, ‘I’m gonna go after Ellen.'”
"I realized that Ellen drove a Porsche … and then she married one,” the Volcano star joked about the now married pair. “All she used to do was drive Porsches and she collected them, and I just thought it was so stupid because they were so loud."
