When Anne Heche left her husband Coley Laffoon for her Men in Trees co-star James Tupper in 2006, ending his marriage as well, it seemed like just another crazy chapter in the actress' colorful life. But in a segment set to air on Extra Wednesday night, Heche, 38, makes her new life with Tupper, 42, sound almost normal! "We're so much more comfortable now that our feelings are exposed and everybody knows about them," she says. She says that being a couple makes working together easier. Heche tells Extra about love scenes with Tupper, "They're less challenging...Usually when you're doing a love scene with somebody you're not in love with, it's like you kiss and you kiss and then you think, 'Oh, great.' And then they yell,'Cut,' and you just split apart right away and act like you don't really like the person." But for Heche and Tupper, "When they yell, 'Cut,' we just lay there and wait for the next take to go!" Will Heche, who has a five-year old son with ex Laffoon, and Tupper start a family of their own? The actress will only reply, "Gotta leave it open, ya know what I'm saying?" And, if the past is any indication, when it comes to Heche, anything goes.
