In an interview with KTLA’s Sam Rubin, Katherine Heigl addressed her image problems.
The Sunday NY Times interview Rubin refers to outlines pretty plainly how Heigl screwed up her rep – by (gasp!) speaking her mind:
When she told Vanity Fair that her 2007 movie “Knocked Up” was “a little bit sexist” — well, duh — the blowback was swift and severe, culminating with her co-star from that film, Seth Rogen, trashing her on Howard Stern’s radio show. Then Ms. Heigl complained about the quality of writing on “Grey’s Anatomy.” Again, duh: Shonda Rhimes, the creator of that show, had Ms. Heigl’s character, Izzie, performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a deer.
But Ms. Heigl was quickly branded a traitor. In a Hollywood twist, her publicist fired her.
The moral of the story – Hollywood likes its blondes to just sit there and look pretty. You listening, ladies?
