Katherine Heigl Bites the Misogynistic Hand That Feeds Her
We’ve got an itty-bitty secret hate of Katherine Heigl in our heart, so imagine our dismay when we discovered that she kinda, sorta agrees with one half of our opinion on her last movie Knocked Up. In the new issue of Vanity Fair, the Grey’s Anatomy actress [Seriously, is there a worse TV show on right now? We know it’s targeted at…well, us, but it seriously sucks.] confesses that she doesn’t think so highly of the film that made her pay scale go from $300,000 per picture (what she was paid for Knocked Up to $6 million (her paycheck for January’s 27 Dresses).
“It was a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys…I’m playing such a bitch; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you’re portraying women? Ninety-eight percent of the time it was an amazing experience, but it was hard for me to love the movie.”
We totally agree with her assessment, but it’s kind hard to pat on the back for it — after all, she did read the script before accepting the project and she had no problem promoting the film she’s suddenly now not so proud of. The check must have cleared! [E! Online and Vanity Fair]
