Anne Heche’s 13-year-old son Atlas and ex James Tupper share touching tributes

Five months after Anne Heche died in a fiery crash, her youngest son Atlas Heche Tupper has shared a touching tribute in her memory.

‘My mom was the brightest person I’ve ever known,’ the grieving 13-year-old told the Los Angeles Inquisitor on Tuesday.

‘She always knew how to solve a problem, or help a friend. She always knew the right thing to do. I cannot put into words how grateful I am or how much I miss her.’

The Daytime Emmy winner welcomed Atlas during the 11-year relationship with her Men in Trees castmate James Tupper, which acrimoniously ended in 2018.

The 57-year-old SAG Award nominee told the mag: ‘Anne and I were together for more than a decade, we have a beautiful son together and in that time, she was the very definition of light in our lives, always bringing fun, love, and energy. She will always be remembered in our hearts and minds.’

Anne tragically died, age 53, on August 5 after crashing her Mini Cooper into an LA-area home.

On December 6, the coroner discovered that Heche had trace amount of benzoylecgonine, an inactive metabolite of cocaine, in her system at the time of the crash but she was not impaired – according to TMZ.
