Actress Anne Heche says she spent the first 31 years of her life suffering from a mental illness triggered by sexual abuse at the hands of her father. Heche, who landed on gossip pages for her romantic relationship with Ellen DeGeneres, made the comments in an exclusive interview with Barbara Walters.

Anne was born on May 25, 1969, in Aurora, Ohio, the youngest of five children of Nancy Heche and Donald Joseph Heche. Anne’s family moved eleven times during her childhood; at one point, they lived in an Amish community. When asked in a 2001 interview on Larry King Live what her father’s source of income was, Heche replied, “Well, he was a choir director. But I don’t think he made much on that a week.

Due to the family’s strained finances, she went to work at a dinner theatre in Swainton.

“At the time we’d been kicked out of our house and my family was holed up living in a bedroom in the home of a generous family from our church”, she said. “I got $100 a week, which was more than anyone else in my family. We all pooled our money in an envelope in a drawer and saved up enough to move out after a year.”
