“I’ve been told I’m too forthright with opinions. Well do they want a fierce woman or milquetoast? Should I be me, or should I pretend to be something I think people want? Pretending seems pretty ridiculous to me.”
— Katherine Heigl on her reputation as a difficult actress to work with. She insists she’s just an opinionated woman. Don’t worry, I still love ya, Katie. [New York Times] Keep reading »
Katherine Heigl has been sporting dark brown, almost black hair for most of the year. But recently, she lopped off several inches and switched things up to a curly bob for the “Killers” premiere. Her blond hair fit the Hollywood sweetheart role so well; it’s no wonder she’s said some off-the-wall things about her career — Katherine’s riding the rebellion train through Hollywood, even though she’s sticking with
mediocre terrible rom-coms. But enough about her career, let’s get back to the hair. Do you like Katherine as a brunette or a blonde? Keep reading »
First, Preston Burke left Cristina Yang heartbroken at the altar, after a scandal erupted when Isiah Thomas called T.R. Knight a gay slur on set. Next, Addison Montgomery took off to start her own private practice. Then, George O’Malley was killed in a bus accident. Last month, Katherine Heigl appeared on the cover of Entertainment Weekly to announce that Isobel Stevens was being written off the show so she could focus on her real-life family. Shortly after, rumors arose that Patrick Dempsey was on his way out, too, when an episode description read, “After learning at a deposition that more of his patients have died than survived, Derek Sheperd decides to quit.” ABC quickly put out a press release saying that Dempsey was staying.
But now people are whispering that Ellen Pompeo, aka Meredith Grey, aka the one “Grey’s Anatomy” is named after, wants out, too. Keep reading »
“[The being called] ungrateful thing bothers me the most. And that IS my fault. I allowed myself to be perceived that way because I was being whiny and I was griping and because I made these snarky comments. So much about living life, to me, is about humility and gratitude. And I’ve tried very hard to have those qualities and be that person and I’m just so disappointed in myself that I allowed it to slip. Of course, of course, I’m grateful. How can I NOT be grateful? I have been afforded such a wonderful life. And to have come this far and to have this kind of success and the freedom of choices it allows me … The fact I could even have Naleigh [her adopted daughter with husband Josh Kelley] in my life — adoption isn’t cheap — is something to be so unbelievably grateful for. I am disappointed in myself for allowing that perception to exist … There’s nothing more gross than [the idea of] somebody in my position being ungrateful … And I hope in the coming years, I can change people’s minds about that.”
— Katherine Heigl regrets criticizing the writers of “Grey’s Anatomy” and for complaining about long hours to David Letterman. But geez, what’s with the big “I’M SORRY!” cover? Can we stop acting like she killed a man? [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »
