Here's Who Anne Heche Wanted To Play Her In A Movie

A movie about Anne Heche's life may have seemed a little far-fetched just weeks ago. Not that the star hadn't had a fascinating run in Hollywood, given her impressive career — not to mention the actress' tabloid-worthy love life, with exes ranging from Ellen DeGeneres to Thomas Jane, as well as Steve Martin (via PBS). The "Six Days, Seven Nights" alum also claimed to have been "raised in a crazy family," alleging she suffered abuse at the hands of her father.

Now a big-screen portrayal of Heche's time on Earth seems more likely after the 53-year-old tragically died due to injuries sustained in a car crash earlier this month. And believe it or not, the mom of two had already shared with fans the actresses that she felt would be best suited to play her in such a film.

Her uncanny comments about the hypothetical portrayal came a little over half a year before the accident that shocked and saddened her followers. Heche was speaking on the "Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef" podcast when she mentioned two very specific names for the role (via Page Six). And let's just say that the stars who the "Return to Paradise" actress chose are right on the money.

Anne Heche pinpointed a singer and an A-list actress

In the podcast episode that saw Anne Heche speaking about the stars she could see playing her in a movie, two young Hollywood icons came to mind. "I've already thought about it. Miley Cyrus or Kristen Bell," the "Dancing With the Stars" alum said (via Page Six).

Of course, who isn't a huge fan of the singer and the "Frozen" star, respectively? But there are very specific reasons that Heche saw these ladies portraying her on screen. As she explained on the podcast, both Bell and Cyrus could "pull off the humor that I have" and do justice to "the journey that I've gone through."

She added, "The two of them share a personality ability to face the world the way that I would want, that I feel like I have and would want portrayed."

At time of writing, neither Cyrus, whom Heche called a "great actress" nor Bell, who played her daughter in a Lifetime movie previously, and was hailed by Heche as a wonderful storyteller, had responded to the star's flattering, posthumous casting decisions.
