Steve Martin and Anne Heche Before she embarked on an attention-grabbing relationship with Ellen De Generes, actress Anne Heche dated Steve Martin, who was 24 years her senior.
"I wanted the love of an older man," she told ABC News in 2000, following a very public breakdown in which she came to believe she was an alien named Celestia.
‘But Portia’s pal sure as heck doesn’t give off gay vibes,’ says the insider.
Neither did her first hubby Mel Metcalfe.” It’s no secret that Portia De Rossi desperately wanted to have a baby – and she was devastated last month when Ellen announced on national television that there was so way she was ever having children of her own.
It was 1997 and the Emmy Award-winning 28-year-old had four successive blockbusters filling cinema seats: Donnie Brasco opposite Al Pacino and Johnny Depp; Volcano with Tommy Lee Jones; I Know What You Did Last Summer; and – still her greatest critical triumph – Wag the Dog with Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman.
By the spring of 2000 her relationship with De Generes was in ruins and so was her career.
On 19 August 2000, the day after ending her three-year affair with De Generes, a dazed and scantily clad Heche knocked on the door of a stranger’s home in Fresno, California.
However, she left school after only one semester to earn money through her clerical job at a law firm.
