Hollywood Blacklisted Anne

Anne didn’t identify herself as a lesbian, but she openly admitted that she fell in love with a woman. 

She was in a relationship with Ellen DeGeneres. They met at an Oscar after-party in 1997 and dated for four years. 

Back then, when she talked about her sexual preferences, she was blacklisted by Hollywood. She even lost some jobs because of that. 

She shared that she was kicked out from the movie's premiere as she brought Ellen as her date, and they didn’t want paparazzi to click pictures of them. 

She was mocked for being honest and canceled out. She said that she felt evil at that time. 

She said that people thought only of either gay or straight. 

She said she fell in love with a human, which was her choice, so she stood up for that. 

She was the first actress to come out, and it was a groundbreaking moment in the industry. 

Anne Had A Rough Childhood

In her memoir, Anne revealed that her father sexually abused her from a very early age. 

She worked hard to escape from the pain she suffered for decades. 

She shared that she did drugs, drank alcohol, and had physical relations with many guys to get the shame out of her life. 

Eventually, that pain took a toll on her mental health. She said she had a terrifying memory of her father's wrongdoings. 

Her mother didn’t support her when she put that allegation against her deceased father. 

Her sister Abigail also claimed that her sister's memories and allegations about their deceased father were untrue and said those incidents never occurred, according to her experience. 

Anne Lost Her Sisters Too

Anne had three sisters, and she lost two when she was alive. 

Her sister Cynthia died due to a heart defect in 1961. She lost another sister in 2006, who died of brain cancer.

Anne Had An Ugly Spilt From Her Ex-Husband

Anne tied the knot to Coley Lafoon in 2001. They were married till 2009. They share a son. 

They had a difficult divorce as they battled for custody and compensation issues. 

Anne said Coley ignored her family as he was always busy with online poker and p*rn.

Coley later claimed that she was lying to get custody of their son. Coley said that Anne was mentally unstable.
