Anne Heche’s Off-Screen Infamy Never Outshined Her On-Screen Magnetism.

She’s an absolute force of nature, but she was no match for the prejudices of our culture who saw in all of her strengths, weaknesses. She was a fierce survivor who refused to be grateful for the things she had earned; she was a mesmerizing performer who was the perfect choice to play Janet Leigh’s Marion Crane in Gus Van Sant’s Psycho reboot. She was the antidote to Julia Roberts’ emetic likeability and Sandra Bullocks’ everywoman approachability — she didn’t give a particular shit if you liked her or not, so when the culture got the chance to take her down, it took her down hard.
