Actresses Anne Heche and Ellen DeGeneres began dating in 1997, soon after DeGeneres publicly came out. They dated until 2000, when they had a reportedly tough breakup. Just after moving out of their shared home, Heche was picked up by police who found her wandering California's Central valley. Heche said she was looking for a spaceship to pick her up, and later released a memoir about living with her alter ego "Celestia." In 2001, Heche got married—to a cameraman.

After the Britpop music scene of the early 90's, a new genre of celebrities stepped into the London spotlight from athletic superstars such as David Beckham to pop culture phenomenons like Simon Cowell and Susan Boyle. Alternative rock acts like Elastica and Oasis were replaced with soulful songstresses like Amy Whinehouse and Adele, and actors like Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley and Robert Pattinson became international superstars. The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton also became a royal, social and fashion icon, as well as a defining figure of the decade. Biography celebrates these cultural icons of the new post-Britpop era.
