Anne Heche took an unexpected look at former girlfriend Ellen DeGeneres this week during an online fashion retrospective.
In a short video from TikTok on Tuesday, Heche looks back on some of her favorite looks from years past, including the 1998 VH1 Fashion Awards and a memorable “Dance with the Stars” routine from last fall.
The actor’s enthusiasm for nostalgia, however, waned considerably when she stumbled upon a photo of her and DeGeneres from the 1998 Golden Globe Awards. The pair appear to have color-coordinated outfits, with DeGeneres in a navy suit and Heche in a blue velvet dress and a matching coat.
“Why do I look like a hippie?” It’s because Ellen didn’t want me to dress sexy, ”said Heche, who has appeared in films like“ Donnie Brasco ”and“ Six Days, Seven Nights ”. After giving the look a zero out of 10 and a thumbs down, she added, “Goodbye, no!”
Heche and DeGeneres date from 1997 to 2000. During their time together, the women were some of Hollywood’s hottest gay couples.
The former couple have generally remained tight-lipped on details of their relationship in the media. Heche, however, referred to her ex in a number of timed interviews upon her appearance on “Dancing with the Stars” last year.
While chatting with Mr. Warburton magazine last year, she recalled the wrath of Hollywood executives when she brought DeGeneres in as a date to the “Volcano” premiere in 1997.
“Fox Studio executives told me if I brought Ellen to the premiere my contract would be terminated,” she told the publication. “I brought Ellen despite these threats, and we were escorted out of the theater before the lights came on by security and we weren’t allowed to attend the first night because they didn’t want to. photos of us together. “
“I was part of a revolution that created social change,” she added, “and I couldn’t have done it without falling in love with her.”
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight last October, Heche noted that she had not spoken to DeGeneres “in years”, but would be open to a reunion under the right circumstances.
“With relationships, I think a lot of us have [been there], you come to a crossroads, “What do you want and what do I want?” “she says. “These goals, this intention in life, are determined by the individual. His intention and my intention were different and that is why we parted ways.
