Katherine Heigl hit the big 3-0 last week and celebrated with husband Josh Kelley and just a few close friends. Heigl and company headed out to Desert Rose restaurant in Los Angeles and enjoyed a small and quiet dinner together. Despite the fact that they were in a public place and being filmed by the paparazzi, Heigl and Kelley couldn’t help but cuddle up all night long. The Grey’s Anatomy star donned a genuine fur coat and was seen without her usual cigarettes in hand. The only thing that was lit up at this celebration was her beautiful birthday cake.  Noticeably missing from the event were her Grey’s costars, especially T.R. Knight, who Heigl has called her “best friend” in past interviews.

Heigl was spotted by photographers at LAX airport this weekend after celebrating Thanksgiving with friends and family. Josh Kelley did not appear to be with her but she did have her mother, Nancy, with her as a travel companion. Heigl ran hot and cold with the paparazzi, smiling for them one minute and burying her face in her coat the next.

The trailer for Heigl’s new film, The Ugly Truth, also hit the internet last week. The dirty comedy also stars Gerard Butler, of 300, and is due in theaters on April 3, 2009. Heigl plays Abby, a morning show producer who is constantly on the search for Mr. Perfect but always comes up emptyhanded. Cue Mike Chadway (Butler), a hardcore TV personality who bluntly explains to Abby the differences between men and women. Mike is a rude awakening for Abby but it remains to be seen whether sparks will fly or whether these two will be at each other’s throats in the end.
