In the early-2000s, actress Katherine Heigl was on top of her game, with a string of romantic comedies under her belt and a steady role on TV in Grey’s Anatomy. And then she made a few off-the-cuff statements about her work: criticizing the material in her roles on Grey’s Anatomy and in the movie Knocked Up. After that, her career took a downward spiral and she was criticized for being too difficult to work with. She has made a comeback of sorts as the new girl on the TV series Suits.
In a much-quoted interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Katherine revealed that she enjoyed working with Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen in the movie Knocked Up, but she didn’t particularly enjoy the film itself. She called the movie “a little sexist”, claiming that the film “paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys”. There is definitely some truth to her comments and it’s too bad she got “knocked down” for them.
