Anne Heche's 14-year-old son Atlas has paid tribute to his late mother.

In a statement published by the Los Angeles Inquisitor on Tuesday, the 13 Minutes actress's son Atlas paid tribute to his late mother, almost six months after her death.

Anne died in August 2022 aged 53 after crashing her car into a house in Los Angeles.

"My mom was the brightest person I've ever known," Atlas wrote. "She always knew how to solve a problem, or help a friend. She always knew the right thing to do."

He added, "I cannot put into words how grateful I am or how much I miss her."

Meanwhile, in his own statement, Atlas's father James Tupper paid tribute to his former partner, explaining, "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."

Heche and Tupper were in a relationship between 2007 and 2018.

The Six Days, Seven Nights actress also shared a son named Homer, 20, with her ex-husband Coleman 'Coley' Laffoon.

According to TMZ, the coroner found Heche had trace amounts of benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, in her system at the time of the crash, but she was not impaired.
