7. Anne Heche
Anne Heche is best known for her relationship with Ellen Degeneres; however, before these two got involved, she had only dated men. When her relationship with the now famous talk show host ended, Heche moved onto a man she had met while she was still involved with Degeneres, Coley Laffoon. These two quickly married and had a child, Homer. Once that relationship soured, Heche hooked up with another man, actor James Tucker, who she is still with. According to her, she changed her mind about being gay and “closed that door.”
