Why Do They Hate Katherine Heigl?

Labels: ,

Some Hollywood claws are out, and they are ripping Katherine Heigl to shreds these days, the Los Angeles Times reports. Apparently, it's payback time for Heigl, who complained in a 2007 Vanity Fair interview that the film "Knocked Up", where she was given the leading role and a hefty paycheck, "paints the women as shrews" but shows the men as "lovable."

That rankled with her director, Judd Apatow, and co-actor, Seth Rogen, and just recently, at "The Howard Stern Show,” they teamed up to pummel Heigl. While promoting Apatow's new film "Funny People," Rogen took a stab at "The Ugly Truth,” Heigl's recent film which was the worst-reviewed movie of the summer. Because one critic called the movie a "sexist swill", Rogen sarcastically commented that it's hard to imagine how "The Ugly Truth" made women look any better, and: "That movie looks like it really puts women on a pedestal in a beautiful way." They went on to diss Heigl's movie with fascinating yet unprintable insights.

One supposes they went home happy after that. As for Katherine Heigl, be advised to fight with class, honey.

Funny Hollywood is all about Hollywood news, gossip, and happenings. It takes a funny and sometimes satirical stance on things Hollywood, and the life, loves, eccentricities and idiosyncrasies of Hollywood celebrities and non-celebrities. For Hollywood fanatics -- those people who crave for anything about that great dazzling tinseltown -- Hollywood!

Saw the film and liked it, but because I am realistic and know that women and men are both idiots in relationships and the movie reflects that.

I'm not saying all guys are just into sex, but they definitely don't hate sex appeal.

Quite true. That movie was real, if anything else. But then, summer movies are rife with escapism, so the movie didn't quite cut it.
