Anne Heche Laid to Rest on Mother’s Day
Anne Heche was laid to rest on Mother’s Day, nine months after her tragic death.
The star’s rep told TMZ that Heche’s final resting place is located at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery Cathedral Mausoleum among other high-profile stars.
Her rep explained, "She loved everyone so passionately and deeply and her children, her legacy, thank everyone for their support and love through this difficult time and are grateful to be able to honor their mother, [Sunday] on Mother’s Day."
Sources tell the site that Anne’s body was cremated, and her remains are next to Mickey Rooney and across from Chris Cornell and Johnny Ramone.
Her plaque reads, “Anne Celeste Heche,” with the description, “Mother, Actress, Writer, Director, Creator, Believer,” and the message, “Live in Love.”
It also features a butterfly engraved in the stone and a photo of the actress flanked by 1969 and 2022.
Heche died at 53 after a fiery car crash in August 2022.
Her teenage son Atlas spoke out in January for the first time since his mom’s untimely death last year.
The 13-year-old, whom she shared with ex James Tupper, opened up to the Los Angeles Inquisitor about how much he missed her.

“My mom was the brightest person I’ve ever known,” he said. “She always knew how to solve a problem, or help a friend. She always knew the right thing to do. I cannot put into words how grateful I am or how much I miss her.”
Atlas’ older half-brother Homer, 20, had previously released his own statement in August, just after Heche passed away.
“My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness,” Homer said. “Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom.”
He continued, “Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me,” he said. “I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time.”
Homer closed with, “Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”
Anne shared Homer with ex-husband Coley Laffoon. They were married from 2001 to 2009.
