    Anne Heche Says That Ellen DeGeneres Didn't Want Her To "Dress Sexy" When They Dated

    "Why do I look like a hippie?"

    You know Ellen DeGeneres — and even if you aren't old enough to remember it, you probably know that she dated actor Anne Heche in the late 1990s.

    DeGeneres and Heche began dating in 1997 before breaking up in 2000.

    Well, Heche recently joined TikTok, and in one of her recent videos — in which she evaluated some of her past red carpet looks — she dropped a surprising tidbit about her relationship with Ellen.

    OK, here's how it went down: One of the outfits Heche highlighted in the video was her match-y getup with DeGeneres at the 1998 Golden Globes.

    "Why do I look like a hippie?" Heche comments on the outfit, before answering her own question: "It's because Ellen didn't want me to dress sexy."

    Damn. Well, there you have it.

    The whole TikTok is pretty interesting, so go and watch the rest of it here. Seems like she'll be someone good to have in your feed going forward, too.
