Months before her death, actress Anne Heche contemplated who she might see in a film as a younger version of herself.
Heche died after her car crashed into a home in Los Angeles. She suffered life-threatening injuries and was pronounced brain dead on August 12. Like many longtime actors, she imagined which young actor could play her in a movie of her life and chose Miley Cyrus or Kristen Bell.
Anne Heche said she could see Miley Cyrus or Kristen Bell play a young version of herself
“I’ve already thought about it. Miley Cyrus or Kristen Bell,” she said on the Behind the velvet rope with David Yontef podcast. “My next book is coming out and it’s called ‘Call me Sane.’ It is the downside of the practice of how to overcome abuse and how to begin the process of living in love with yourself that is engaging with others and living in love and kindness as you bring yourself to others in your full capacity can.”
“But when I think about those stories and the journey that I’ve been through, when I think about the rock stars for me, and of course Miley is a rock star who can pull off the humor that I have,” she said.
“I did a film with Kristen Bell,” Heche recalls. “God bless them. I love them so much. They both share the personality ability to face the world how I want to, how I want to feel and how I want to be portrayed.”
Why did Anne consider Miley Cyrus to play her?
Why Cyrus? “The fact that she did it Hannah Montana‘ Heche said. “Now I started as a young actor. I started supporting my family when I was 12, but it was in the dinner theater. It’s Wayne, New Jersey. People didn’t know about it, but making a hundred bucks a night and going on stage and doing that was the training.”
“The ability for her to be able to pull through – now I’ve played twins – I’ve seen her in it Hannah Montana. To be able to do that, to be able to express that, to be as brave as she went from Disney to Wrecking Ball. How she moves, how she sees. Your voice, your compassion.”
“She fucking loves everyone,” Heche added. “Her ability to go on stage and sing acapella. That would be the way I would see pure, pure artists dealing with the world having the best time they could ever have.”
She would have loved to have played her own mother and Kristen Bell would have played her
“That’s why Miley. And I think she’s a damn good actress,” Heche said. “Kristen Bell gave me my second Emmy nomination. She and I played a mother and daughter in a Lifetime film years ago. And again, Kristen made me feel like a reflection of a committed woman, her ability to tell a story, to do it with joy, to do it with her personality, her charm, her great timing and humor.
“I see myself in her a lot and I don’t think it was a mistake that I played her mother and I want her to play me. And I could play her mother. I could play my mother. Oh. B****. That would get some reviews.”
