Anne Heche Calls Harrison Ford a ‘Hero’ for Supporting Her After Going Public with Ellen DeGeneres!Anne Heche is recalling the heroic way Harrison Ford supported her after she went public with her past relationship with Ellen DeGeneres.
The actress, 51, brought her relationship with the comedian, 62, into the spotlight when she brought DeGeneres as her plus-one to the film premiere of Volcano in 1997. Heche — who just came off ABC’s Dancing with the Stars — recently reflected on the fallout from her decision to not hide her relationship with the talk show host from the cameras, going against those in her circle at the time who urged her against coming out.
Now, Heche tells Entertainment Tonight, that Ford, 78, whom she starred opposite in the 1998 action rom-com Six Days Seven Nights, was one of the select Hollywood colleagues to stand by her during that time.
“I would not have gotten that movie,” she said. “He called me the day after they said I wasn’t gonna get it, because I took Ellen to the [Volcano] premiere, and Harrison Ford, he was a hero.”
“He said, ‘Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn who you’re sleeping with. We’re gonna make the best romantic comedy there is, and I’ll see ya on the set,'” Heche recalled. “He’s one of my heroes. He fought a battle for me, and I would be on any desert island with him any day.”
“He’s an extraordinary human being,” she added.
