The fact that Steve Martin “went through” an impressive line of hot, classy numbers in the ‘80s and ‘90s (which I also would have done with absolute sincerity and relish if I’d been in Martin’s shoes) is common knowledge — Linda Ronstadt, Bernadette Peters, Victoria Tennant, etc. But I’d completely forgotten that Martin was deeply involved with poor Anne Heche between October ‘94 and early ‘97, and that it ended when she dumped him cold for Ellen DeGeneres. That’s the legend, at least. Things were probably winding down of their own accord before Heche’s historic get-together with DeGeneres at the March ‘97 Vanity Fair Oscar after-party.
