This week Newsweek asks: “Why Is Katherine Heigl So Annoying?” a question some of us may have asked ourselves once or twice already. Newsweek wonders: “The Grey’s Anatomy’ star was supposed to be America’s new sweetheart. Now we’ve all turned on her. Is it her fault, or ours?” Ken Levine may have the answer. According to the Emmy-winning “citizen journalist,” the fault — at least for the complaint she lobbed on Letterman last week — is allegedly all hers. Heigl whined: “Our first day back was Wednesday and it was — I’m going to keep saying this because I hope it embarrasses them — a 17-hour day, which I think is cruel and mean.” But Levine writes:
Poor Katherine Heigl. What she neglected to add was this: This “cruel” shooting schedule was only to accommodate HER and her needs. The producers graciously shuffled things around so she could go off and do promotion for her new film. Also, with union rules, the producers had to pay a ton of overtime and penalties to make this happen. The thanks they get is Katherine Heigl going on national television hoping to embarrass them.
So, what do you think? Is Heigl annoying or lovable? [via NYMag]
