The burns Anne Heche received in a violent collision in Los Angeles on Friday are still being treated, and she is still intubated.

According to the 53-year-old actress' publicist, "Anne is now in stable condition."

"During this difficult time, her family and friends ask for your thoughts, prayers, and respect for her privacy."

According to an unidentified Heche-related source quoted by CNN, "In the ICU is Anne.

Lucky for her to still be alive. She will need a lot of time to recuperate from her serious burns.

Her staff, as well as her family, are still processing what caused the accident."

Actor Thomas Jane, who was Heche's ex-boyfriend, expressed his disappointment after learning of her serious injuries in an interview with the Daily Mail.

Even though Anne and I are no longer dating, Jane said that the awful news of today "was upsetting to me and to those who love her."
