Anne Heche’s son, Homer Laffoon, has announced the release of his mother’s post-humous memoir, Call Me Anne. This will be the second memoir by Heche, following the New York Times Best-seller, Call Me Crazy.
Heche was removed from life support and passed away on August 14th, 2022, in Mar Vista, California, days after her vehicle crashed into a leased home. There were no additional injuries or casualties. Heche was 53 years old.
While Heche’s faced addiction-related issues, a toxicology report confirmed that she was not under the affects of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash.
Shortly after her passing, Laffoon said in a statement, “My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness.”
Laffoon is now executor of Heche’s estate, following a months-long legal battle with the actress’ ex, James Tupper. Tupper is the father of her younger son, Atlas. Heche did not have a will.
Laffoon announced, from Heche’s Instagram, “The book is the product of mom’s further efforts to share her story and to help others where she could. Call Me Anne is the result and I know she was excited to share with the world.”
A “special event” is planned by Barnes and Noble in Los Angeles on January 24th, the memoir’s release date. The book is already available to order on Simon & Schuster’s website. A description from the publisher says contents will include: how Harrison Ford became her on-set mentor, her relationship with Ellen Degeneres, her encounter with Harvey Weinstein, her history of childhood abuse, her relationship with God, her journey to love herself, and more.
Heche’s final on-screen credit was for 2022’s “What Remains”.
