For the first time ever, former talk show presenter Ellen DeGeneres spoke briefly about her ex’s fiery collision and hospitalization in a brief interview.
DeGeneres dated Anne Heche from 1997 to 2000; she is presently unconscious following a catastrophic vehicle accident on August 5.
In Santa Barbara, California, on Monday, a Daily Mail photographer approached DeGeneres, 64, and inquired about Heche’s health.
“We’re not in touch with each other, so I wouldn’t know,” DeGeneres replied before adding, “I don’t want anyone to be hurt.”
“It was quite a dangerous accident that happened, wasn’t it?” the cameraman asked.
She replied while heading to her car

Also Heche’s frequent co-star Alec Baldwin posted a video on Instagram on Saturday wishing the actress a swift recovery.
“There’s not a lot of women I’ve worked with that are brave in the way that Anne is brave,” Baldwin said. “I love you Anne, I love you and I think you’re such a talented person and I hope everything is OK, I hope you come through this.”
“My heart goes out to you,” Baldwin added. “I’m sending you all my love.”
Heche, 53, is still in critical condition after she crashed her blue Mini Cooper
into a residence in Los Angeles and lost consciousness shortly after.
This caused a fire that took 59 firefighters to put out.
Heche’s agent, Michael McConnell of Zero Gravity Management, told Reuters on Monday that the actor was still unconscious
and connected directly to a breathing machine. Since then, there have been no additional updates on her health.
Anne Heche has “severe lung injuries needing mechanical ventilation and burns
that necessitate surgical intervention,” McConnell added in his statement to the media site.
Meanwhile Heche had earlier collided with a nearby apartment building’s garage and fled the scene, according to the celebrity news website TMZ.
Officer Annie Hernandez with the Los Angeles Police Department told CNN on Monday that she is presently being investigated for misdemeanor DUI and hit-and-run.
