Please, Katherine Heigl, do us all a favor and stop talking. It seems that no one can stop the Grey’s Anatomy star from shooting her mouth off and offending everyone who has made her who she is today. Heigl first showed her outspoken nature when her good friend T.R. Knight had an on set argument with Isaiah Washington. She went on to offend everyone from Judd Apatow to Shonda Rhimes, criticizing the roles she has been given and the shows and movies she has been a part of. She has made her opinion known about her character Izzie’s relationship with George, saying she didn’t like it – so much, in fact, that she’s taken herself out of the Emmy race.
Heigl released a statement through her publicist, asking not to be considered for an Emmy this year, despite surprising many by winning the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series last year. “I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the academy organization” Heigl said. “In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials.” Melissa Kates, Heigl’s publicist, relayed the message to the media on her her behalf.
There has been much speculation that Heigl will leave Grey’s Anatomy in the near future, looking to focus on her movie career. However, Heigl might want to think twice before becoming such a tv snob. Last time I checked, Knocked Up and 27 Dresses aren’t exactly Oscar worthy. Her next film, The Ugly Truth, shouldn’t fare any better with critics. If she’s so concerned with trophies on her wall, she might want to try to get in a movie that George Clooney or Clint Eastwood is directing and producing. If she’s smart, she’ll stay right where she is, stop complaining, and be grateful for where she is. It doesn’t seem that anybody will want to continue working with her if she keeps slamming their projects.
