Accordinging to California law, she's declared legally dead though, at least from the reports I'm reading, her heart is still beating and she has not been removed from life support at the moment as they are still awaiting the organ donation info.

Of course, it's all semantics. Really, she's gone.

She was a decent actress. I remember one of the last things I saw her in from a few years ago, Syfy's one-season wonder Aftermath. Not a great show or anything but she was by far the best things about it.

I always thought of Volcano, too. Such a cheesy movie but she was good and looked good in it.

RIP.

Used the JustWatch app to see which movies of hers I had access to on streaming. Many options. Decided on Donnie Brasco. She didn't have a big flashy role but she did a solid job.

Plus the homeowner has to wait while insurance companies figure things out. She needs money now. I assumed the GFM money would be available sooner.
The fundraiser is for the woman who was renting and living in the house, started by the homeowner. Looks like almost all her belongings were destroyed.

So was this suicide by crash by Heche? Her estate is now going to have to totally rebuild that house.

According to the GFM page :

Jennifer Durand and Leslie Fingerhut are organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Lynne Mishele.

RIP and clearly she had some mental issues.

I feel sorry for the kids who lost a mom.

I did not know it was her in this movie until maybe 2 or 4 scenes but she looked great in it

Recently did a rewatch of Ally McBeal, and she was great in a few guest spots she had.

And I also have a soft spot for volcano. " It's a lava bomb! "

Just watched her tonight in "Six Days Seven Nights". Such a good film. She was great in it with Harrison Ford.

I know it’s the 24-7 media ecosystem we live in but there’s something so unseemly about getting play by play reporting of brain death and organ donor status over someone who clearly did not have survivable injuries.

I don’t know what it served to give us every moment of her slow death teased out and I wasn’t even a huge fan, it just seems vaguely grotesque some of the reporting out there the last few days.

Agree. Fun film. The studio was less than thrilled that she went public with her relationship with DeGeneres right before it was released. I'm guessing they felt it would hurt the movie's success and no one would buy a lesbian as one of the leads in a straight romantic comedy. Still, it did respectfully at the box-office. I first noticed Heche in "Walking and Talking". One of my favorite indie films.

Taken off life support: Anne Heche, 'Wag the Dog' and 'Donnie Brasco' star, has died at 53 - CNN

"Anne Heche has been peacefully taken off life support," a representative for her family told CNN earlier Sunday night, and later confirmed the actress' passing.

IMO the issue isn't those selling, it's those who would spend hundreds on a book they'll never read only because the person died.

Checked my local library and no luck on the memoir, but it does return that she narrated the audio book for Stephen King's "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" available instantly on Hoopla.

The same library I get Hoopla through uses an app called Libby. I use it for audio books (and print books) on my phone. I checked Libby and it's there, too. It's fairly short at 6 hrs. Listened to the sample and Anne sounds good and evocative. Thanks for posting this.

What I remember most about her Biography was that it was released right before 9/11, one day she was everywhere selling the book and getting media hype and the next it was completely gone and forgotten.

We'll never know. I really hope it wasn't intentional. That would be downright evil way to go to intentionally crash into someone's house. Akin to something like a mass shooter. Again with that footage of her car right before the crash it's amazing no one else was killed.

Surprised to see so few Donnie Brasco mentions, that's far and away her best and most high profile film. (same with Depp, yes I said it!) Sad ending, clearly some mental issues... life is precious, enjoy each day you wake up.

I mean talk about a fucked up origin story. No wonder Heche had issues. Reading about her family (specifically her father) is truly horrifying.

Re: Anne Heche, 53, dies after fiery car accident (2022)

https://deadline.com/2022/08/anne-he...aa5dee56334940

Anne Heche died due to smoke inhalation and thermal injuries according to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner, People reported today. Her death was officially ruled an accident.

The report cited a “sternal fracture due to blunt trauma” as another “significant condition” contributing to her passing. Heche sustained the injuries when her car jumped a curb and careened into a house in West L.A. last week, where it burst into flames. She was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

After Heche was pronounced brain dead, her family on Thursday made the difficult decision to take her off life support after any viable organs could be donated. She passed away Sunday evening.
