Admittedly, we find Katherine Heigl annoying. Like, when she went to that Golden Globes ceremony a few years ago and didn’t clap when some other actor won over her GBFF (Gay Best Friend Forever) T.R. Knight. Or when she herself won and got all pissy when the announcer pronounced her name wrong (it happens, move on). Or when she echoed our sentiments about Knocked Up conveniently after she got done promoting the film and spending the paycheck. So it’s no wonder we muttered a little “Eww” when we found out Heigl finally married her longtime fiancé Josh Kelley in a ceremony in Utah over the weekend. He crosses a line with us, in the hairy chest department. Usually, we like chest hair — duh, the look is what made Burt Reynolds a stud for a lifetime. But Kelley has that very puzzling type of chest hair where the strands end in a perfect crew neck. It’s kind of revolting. So yeah, congratulations to the happy couple — they totally deserve each other! [MSNBC] Keep reading »
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] Keep reading »
Wow. The last movie that made us this upset and confused was, like, Fahrenheit 9/11, so imagine our surprise when we found ourselves wanting to stab Ben (Seth Rogen) in the face as we shouted “Abort! Abort!” at Alison (Katherine Heigl), like she could hear us or something. Sadly, Judd Apatow, the man behind the ever more hilarious but not nearly as emotion-inspiring 40-Year-Old Virgin, probably didn’t intend for his summer blockbuster to get women involved in a heated debate about unplanned pregnancies, but, well, it did. Our highly expertised movie criticism after the jump. Keep reading »
