Now, her friend, Alec Baldwin has shared a video offering well wishes to the actress as her recovery begins.
“Hey, I just want to send out my best wishes and all my love to Anne Heche,” Alec Baldwin said in the Instagram video. “There’s not a lot of women I’ve worked with that are brave in the way that Anne is brave.”
“She is an amazingly talented woman. I love you Anne, I love you and I think you are such a talented person. I hope everything is OK. I hope you come through this. My heart goes out to you. I’m sorry you had this tragic thing happen to you, and I’m sending you all my love. Everyone please join me in sending their support and love to the wonderful Anne Heche.”
However, people were quick to call out Heche for her alleged behavior behind the wheel. “Thank god there wasn’t any children playing in that garden,” a commenter wrote. “She put lives in danger,” another person added.
As Mamas Uncut reported over the weekend, several hours after Heche was involved in a near-deadly car crash, a source close to the actress shared an update.
According to the source, “Anne is in the ICU, she’s lucky to be alive,” they told CNN. “She has severe burns and has a long recovery ahead. Her team and her family are still trying to process what led up to the crash.”
Los Angeles Police Public Information Officer Jeff Lee told CNN that Heche was driving at high speeds when she hit the home which was then engulfed in flames. It then took first responders more than an hour to extinguish those flames.
A witness told NBC Los Angeles that they watching a “crane to move the car to extract the driver. It was crazy.”
“We really had a multifaceted incident here,” Los Angeles Fire Department Captain Erik Scott explained. “We had a significant traffic collision, we had entrapment of a woman inside that, we had a car that erupted into fire, and then we had a home that had significant fire that is red tagged. It’s at this point destroyed.”
Thankfully no one else was injured in the accident. Her rumored ex-boyfriend, Thomas Jane, told the Daily Mail that although she suffered extreme burns and was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, she is stable now and expected to pull through.
“My thoughts and prayers are with Anne, one of the true talents of her generation,” said Jane, who dated Heche as recently as 2020, told the Daily Mail. “Thank God no one else was hurt.”
According to TMZ, Heche was reportedly driving a blue Mini Cooper when she crashed the vehicle into the garage of an apartment complex in Los Angeles. Witnesses who saw the accident occurred attempted to help Heche, but she allegedly fled the scene in her vehicle.
Heche then reportedly crashed again, this time into a nearby home. It was then that a fire ignited, engulfing the house in flames.
Heche was put into an ambulance and taken to a local LA hospital. TMZ reports that Heche was intubated and in critical condition. Thankfully, she is expected to survive.
It is not yet known if Heche was under the influence during the accident or not. No other injuries were reported and the crash remains under investigation.
Heche is a mother to one, a 13-year-old son named Atlas. Mamas Uncut will update this report as new information continues to come to light.
