Anne Heche’s Net Worth
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Anne Heche had a net worth of $4 million at the time of her untimely death.
It would have been higher if she hadn’t gone through a costly divorce from her ex-husband, Coley Laffoon.
He allegedly demanded $28,000 per month in spousal support, nearly $10,000 in mortgage money, and primary custody of their son, Atlas, during their divorce.
“It is disappointing that Coley Laffoon has resorted to filing lies with the court because Anne refused to cave to his astronomical monetary demands,” a representative for Heche told People at the time.
“The child’s father has refused to work for several years in order to contribute financially to the child’s care.”
Heche eventually agreed to pay $3,700 per month in child support and give Laffoon a lump sum of $515,000 as well as half of their community property in their divorce. They divided their son’s physical and legal custody.
Heche had several projects in the works prior to her tragic accident and death.
According to People, she had not only finished filming Lifetime’s “Girl in Room 13” and the horror-thriller “Full Ride,” as well as television roles in “All Rise” and The Weeknd’s HBO show “Idol.”
Anne Heche was one of Hollywood’s busiest women before her tragic death.
According to Biography, she began acting at the age of 12 to help support her family after her father died. “When I was 12, my family moved 11 times,” she explained to Page Six. “We were impoverished. There is no money. Homeless. A yellow bandage across our door.”
Fortunately, she found professional success. Heche made her professional debut in 1991 on the soap opera “Another World,” for which she won a Daytime Emmy.
Two years later, she made her film debut in “An Ambush of Ghosts,” and she went on to appear in films such as “Donnie Brasco,” “Volcano,” and “Six Days Seven Nights,” as well as television shows such as “Ally McBeal,” “Hung,” “Men in Trees,” and Chicago P.D.” (via IMDb).
Heche also produced her own work. She wrote and directed the short film “Stripping for Jesus,” as well as a segment of the television film “If These Walls Could Talk 2.” She also co-created and executive produced the NBC sitcom “Bad Judge” and directed “Ellen DeGeneres: American Summer Documentary.” She also produced the television film “The Dead Will Tell” and her NBC sitcom “Save Me.”
In 2003, Heche released her memoir “Call Me Crazy,” in which she detailed her ultra-religious upbringing and mental health struggles. With such a busy career, you may be wondering how much money Heche left behind when she died at the age of 53.
