Anne Heche shared who she’d want to play her in biopic before death
Anne Hache made two suggestions for who she wanted to portray her in a biopic – months before her death on Sunday.
“Behind the Velvet Rope” podcast host David Younteff shared a new episode with Heche as guest star on Tuesday, noting that the discussion took place “earlier this year.”
Heche died at the age of 53, nine days after being pulled from a burning car and hospitalized in critical condition following a crash in Los Angeles on August 5.
In a posthumous podcast, the “Another World” star shared without hesitation that either Miley Cyrus or Kristen Bell would be his top choices to play him in a biopic. He explained that Cyrus, 29, and Bell, 42, “have the personality and the ability to face the world the way I want it to be portrayed.”
Heche praised Cyrus for being “bold” as a child star and “a pure, pure artist who engages with the world at the best possible time”.
“That’s why Miley and I think she’s a great actress,” he added.

In 2004, Heche and Bell played a mother-daughter duo in the Lifetime film Gracie’s Choice, which turned into a biopic.
“Kristen, it was like a reflection for me again,” Heche said. “Her ability to tell a story, to do it through joy, to do it with character, charm, great timing and humor. I see a lot of myself in her. I don’t think it’s a mistake that I played her mother. , and now I’m asking him to play me.”
Elsewhere in the interview, she revealed that she eventually wants to work with Owen Wilson, Tom Cruise and Bridesmaids stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Rebel Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne and Ellie Kemper.
On Friday, Heche was declared brain dead after the fiery crash, but was placed on life support while he was evaluated as an organ donor. On Sunday, his representative, Holly Baird, told USA TODAY that Heche “peacefully came off life support.”
