10 Ways Katherine Heigl Destroyed Her Own Career!

Katherine Heigl was slated to be the next rom-com queen; however, her unprofessional behavior has destroyed her career and limited almost any possibility of a comeback. Katherine’s once promising career has lost momentum and industry insiders are talking more about her diva-like behavior on set and less about her acting abilities. Here are 10 ways Katherine Heigl has destroyed her own career:

10.

Heigl called her first big movie “Knocked Up” – which was lauded by critics and helped her make the transition from television to the big screen – sexist. “It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it,” she told Vanity Fair.

    She can learn from this, and come back (if its true). She seems smart, she should do smart movies instead of Rom coms. She could write and direct also. She’s pretty and talented she can still do well. I want to see her next movie Jenny’s wedding.

    Really? I don’t like Heigl at all, but half of these “top 10″ reasons are nothing more than speculations about her “apparent” diva-like behaviour, with not too many real sources backing them up. It sounds like you just have a hate-on for her and were asked to think of 10 things to complete your article. PS, as much as I don’t like her, I am surprised and impressed by her comments re: Grey’s Anatomy. The writing on that show *is* bad, it did not warrant an Emmy nomination, and yes, they did make her character crazy/unprofessional to boost ratings, particularly in her second-last season. And yes, Knocked Up was very sexist, as was The Ugly Truth. In both movies, her character is portrayed as incredibly uptight and controlling, which is how many women are written in rom-coms, all until some guy comes around to help them “loosen up”. I’m actually impressed she realized this and called it.

    I can well believe it tbh. I was a huge fan of Roswell and happened to be there on a day when she was filming. She ignored the people who came to see her, walking right past quite a few with her nose up in the air and others she blatantly told (quite rudely) she didn’t have ‘time’. That same day Colin Hanks and Adam Rodriguez were on set, both were also busy but neither told anyone they had no time, stopping and talking to people…from that day to this I won’t go and see anything with the stuck up moody one in…

    Now, I respect her even more. She’s right, in my opinion about the knocked up, it’s sexist, and it does show that women are shrew and have no self respect. She’s beautiful and very intellectual smart woman. Good job!

    If she felt it was so sexist, why didn’t she turn down the script and walk away? I think she’s absolutely right in her opinion but it’s a bit hypocritical to take the paycheck and THEN bad-mouth the movie! Without that movie, she likely would have never transitioned from television.

    Not really a fan of hers, but this list is idiotic garbage and gossip.

    One bad movie and you can kiss your movie career goodbye. The “diva” accusations are ones every star gets hit with. Pull your head out of your butt and it becomes easy to see that “stars” CAN’T operate like normal folks. It doesn’t take much to start a scene, the general population seems to go full moron in the presence of celebrities. I’m willing to bet the diva claims are exaggerated as well. Tabloids pay money to get inside info, then they inflate it like the Goodyear blimp to draw the celebretards in and protect against lawsuits from celebrity targets.

    Everything else just sounds par for the acting course. A bunch of arteeests protecting their craft. Her behavior and choices support the arty farty conclusion far more than the can’t get work proposition.

    Some people won’t sell out. She seems to have an internal standard she wants to meet. Nothing wrong with that.

    Kutcher is an absolute garbage heap of an “actor” but he’s handsome and apparently charming so he gets work. Nothing wrong with that. Nothing wrong with not wanting to certain work or films either.

    Watch what you like, and leave folks alone about their own choices. Not hard to be a decent human being ffs

    Shes married to a country singer, from Lady Antebellum. She didn’t NEED the work, so she probably feels she can be a diva. Or she’s jealous that hubby is bigger than she is

    April 15, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    She was in movies before Television – My Father the Hero, Under Siege etc. She should have stuck with that. However, I get your point. Maybe she had regrets, after filming, due to reading reviews.

    if Sofia does not speak she is ok but as soon as she starts her voice is so annoying that would kill the hardest erotic feel.

    I honestly never realized she was this much of a pain to so many people in the movie and television industry. If her own publicist quit in 2010 at a time where her popularity was ski high that says something. It will be interesting to see if her attitude changes once she stops getting roles for movies and television and has to go back to doing auditions before being given parts. She was an A-list actress who could just choose projects without auditioning, but it looks like those days are over! A lot of great actors and actress’ have ruined their careers and had to start from the bottom again to attempt to ressurect what they destroyed by being consumed by the Fame Monster and believing their own hype that they’re “all that and a bag of chips” It’s a shame too, because I she’s so beautiful and has a knack for comedy really. Why she bagged so much on her character in “Knocked Up” is beyond me. Sure she was a bit of a shrewd person at first in the movie, but that was on purpose to show that she had become too career driven and wanted to get ahead so much she worked herself to death. Eventually her character lightened up as the movie went on and she became more relatable and down to earth. I thought it was her best movie to date. I hope whatever she’s going to go through humbles her so she can learn from the mistakes she’s made

    “Destroyed her career”? What rubbish. She is to be admired. So you can’t believe she has principles and won’t prostitute herself by joining the so called”Celebrity” bandwagon? Good on her I say. What a vacuous piece. She “demands” good scripts, shock horror! Other so called celebrities (Scarlett Johannsen ?) should take a look at themselves, have more integrity & not just do everything for money.

    I wasnt a fan, however I admire her integrity & am sure she will do well.

  35. midixon19

    April 19, 2014 at 2:58 am

    Heigl is a typical Hollywood lib. She this everyone is beneath her. They talk about the “1%” yet never include themselves in that 1%. She’s someone who will bemoan the fact that others make huge sums of money through their own hard work and intellectual ability yet would never dream of giving any of their money away. The kind that says “you have mad enough money” while never putting a limit on her own earning potential. The kind that lectures others on their carbon footprint while flying chartered jets, taking limos to black tie affairs, owning a 10,000 sq/ft mansion and driving SUVs, all of which use more energy in a month that the person whom she lectures use their entire life. Katherine Heigl is the product of liberal Hollywood, why should we expect her to act any different than she does.

  36. Anthony Millsaps

    April 19, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    @Marcus so believing some of the info in this article that has some credible information about Heigl shows I’m suffering from a lack of brain cell activity enough to not worthy of being given a name? That’s harsh dude. When I read any article I consider the source and form my own opinion on whether the info in said story is credible. If you consider the facts, a lot of what this article has to say is true. When was the last time she did a movie? Any movie for that matter that was from a major studio. Her publicist quit Why would ANY publicist quit working for one of THE most in demand actress’ in hollywood at that time? Most would’ve dealt with her BS because she was being paid so well, but she quit anyway. That’s how bad it probably was working for this diva. She’s been trying to get back on Grey’s Anatomy without any hope there. The writing is on the wall. She’s toxic. Time will tell, but I’m inclined to believe the rumors. If that makes me brain dead…so be it

    April 21, 2014 at 4:35 am

    I’m not sure Scarlett Johannsen is actually a good example, considering she has been in movies like Lost in Translation, Her, Vicky, Christina, Barcelona, Match Point, etc. all of which are better than the movies Katherine Heigl has made, as funny as I think they are. I haven’t seen Her, but it looks like a good movie. Most of them were also critically acclaimed and some were award winning. Just because she has done some superhero stuff, like the Avengers and Captain America, doesn’t mean she’s doing stuff just for the money. Even The Nanny Diaries had a deeper story than the movies Katherine Heigl has been in.

    How does any movie insist that the characters are supposed to be acting like every male or female acts. It’s portraying two different groups of friends, one female, one male, and there are plenty that act both ways from each group in real life. It’s not like it’s showing men to be much better in that movie, are we all jobless stoners with no money creating nudity sites? Nope, but some are.
    Point is, just because you perceive something a certain way, doesn’t necessarily make it so.

  48. Free2bEqual

    April 22, 2014 at 3:38 am

    I respect her more now, too, because she was willing to say what she really thinks. Very rare in Hollywood. Unfortunately, also not well tolerated. But I would say that if you think a script is demeaning or distastful, pass it up. As my own Devil’s Advocate, though, I’d have to point out that I’ve heard actors I respect say that the final product was not what they signed on for. Meryl Streep & Liam Neeson made a film together; once they saw it, they refused to promote it because it had been changed so much in post that they actually said – at a film festival no less – “Don’t go see this movie. The film we made is not the one that’s on the screen. We made a good film; [The director] made a really bad one.”
    SO… who knows what may have happened with Heigl’s pojects?

  49. Free2bEqual

    April 22, 2014 at 3:59 am

    That could be useful because, even though it would focus on Katherine Heigl in particular, it could serve as a guide for celebrities who need to “fix” their public personae or reputations in order to improve or restart their careers. I immediately think of Winona Ryder, but she certainly isn’t the only one. Give me 5 minutes & I’d come up with a dozen more good actors who – for any number of reasons – fell out of favor with the public & consequently felt a devastating seismic shift that left their hard-won careers broken into unrecognizable debris-coated rubble stretching far beyond their reach of understanding. So perhaps a “Ten Ways To Rebuild Your Crumbled Acting Career” List could possibly have some merit to it. But that would require something quite uncommon from today’s media: a piece built on (or at least heavily dosed with) sincerity and thought rather than uninspired grade-school gossip built on (or at least heavily dosed with) conjecture, pettiness and bias.

    She said this while promoting The Ugly Truth. That’s why Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen got offended. While she was promoting The Ugly Truth she said that Knocked up was sexists. In my opinion it wasn’t sexist. Knocked Up showed what happens to a successful woman who has a great job and what she has to deal with when she’s pregnant. Unlike The Ugly Truth at least the men were not as great. It showed the side of a dimwitted boyfriend who was unemployed and how he was gonna deal with a pregnant girlfriend and new baby. While in the Ugly Truth the man was the hero while her character was considered the bitch. I’m sorry but Knocked Up showed her more in a better light than the Ugly Truth.

  85. JM

    May 3, 2014 at 4:44 am

    It was just made from a male’s point of view…how does that make it not sexist? It portrays the men as silly man-children and the women as uptight, babysitting said man-children. It’s pretty sexist in both directions, when you think about it.

    I haven’t seen The Other Woman, but I saw a trailer and it seems like yet another typical portrayal of emotionally unstable women that measure their self-worth by a man’s judgement of them. In any case, I still don’t like Heigl. She (and whoever her publicist is) accepts some pretty bad roles, and if she thought the movies were sexist she shouldn’t have starred in them.

    That really is a stupid way to lose a potentially great career. I saw her in “Knocked Up” and liked her performance. She’s also very attractive, but her ego got in the way as well as her apparent inability to respect the very people who were putting her on the big screen. Had she just been able to “go along to get along” with the bosses as well as her co-stars, who knows how far she might have gone?

    Yeah it does make you brain dead. People quit for all kinds of reasons. I heard the publicist had serious family matters to attend to as the reason of her departure. This article is just gossip and no one knows the real truth. Don’t believe everything you read because 99.9% is made up. Also, don’t get too wrapped up in celebrity culture. They’re just people like you and me. To be so fervent about people you don’t know is weird.

    People hate it when you take care of yourself. They expect you to take it in tender places as you climb the ladder, then keep taking it when you get there. Then if you make lots of money, they want to tax you to death or hate your for being rich. She’s being true to herself – bravo! (I live by the motto, better an S.O.B. than a fool!)

    Perhaps producing and directing her own movies on Netflix is the next step for her – ala Kevin Spacey’s “House of Cards.”

    She could do a great Marilyn, and be true to Norma Jean’s struggle to maintain self esteem.

    Tony, You are absolutely right,not every successful actress slept her way to the top, I’m just saying when Julia got the roll for “Pretty Women” all she had to do was BE HERSELF! That’s why 2 1/2 men was such a success for Charlie Sheen, that’s actually how he lives his life.

    So, Heigl is the only actress who acts like a diva? I find that hard to believe. As far as the movie “Knocked Up”, the title is very vulgar and offensive, but why aren’t people just as upset when movie after movie and tv show after tv show portray men as dumb, sexist, abusive and violent. Also, why do we care so much about celebrities. Most of them are seriously unhappy.

    This is what happens when Trailer Park Trash get a little money. I worked for a high-end retailer for years. Generally speaking, you have two unique types of customers, those who purchased during sales of after the season goods and regular price during season customers. My regular price customers were great. As they lowered the price of the sales goods, the more demanding the customers were.

    I don’t know why people need to look so deep into a screwball comedy to accuse it of speaking for all women and all men. It shows the story of one loser but lovable guy and his preggo one night stand. Since when is that what speaks for women as a whole? And it shows enough negative things about men that I don’t think it could be pro-men if all else were true.

    It was sexist. The entire premise was predicated on the idea that a smart, attractive, successful woman would go and spawn with some dope head schleb. I have no idea how Seth Rogen is even remotely a star. He’s not funny and he’s ugly.

  111. Volvican

    May 13, 2014 at 2:24 pm

    This list is stupid… ‘#3 and #2 aren’t even ways she did anything. It’s also missing what is probably the #1 way she has and continues to destroy her career – she continues to employ her mother as her manager. Her mother is the real diva here – Heigle just follows suit. She also ‘follows suit’ literally, in that half of the time she dresses like her mother – matronly and like she owns stock in Chicos. Some of what she’s said is true – but Hollywood never ever tolerates an ungracious celeb. I remember when JLo first was starting to get big and she came out with an interview that dished negatively on people that she starred with. She very quickly learned that everyone has to shut their mouth, otherwise you just won’t get worked with again. This isn’t because Hollywood is filled with people full of integrity and not willing to judge… it’s because it’s full of secrets and no one is going to want to work with someone that is known to spill them.

    May 14, 2014 at 9:35 pm

    The first time I ever saw her (not being a Grey’s Anatomy watcher) was on TV at the Emmys. The announcer mispronounced her last name, and as soon as she got up to the stage, she haughtily said “It’s Heigl” as if she was Marlena Dietrich and someone hadn’t recognized her, even though she (thought) she was a big time star. Not in a nice or informative way, but in a way like she was saying “how dare you not know how to pronounce my name!” Everything I’ve heard and read about her since then only confirms my dislike of her. I remember one time she brought her daughter onto The Tonight Show, and kept trying to get her to act cute, do some clapping thing the kid did at home. The kid was scared, and kept trying to go to her daddy, who was off camera. She was obviously trying to use her daughter to show that she’s not a stuck up biotch, but it didn’t help.

    I can tell that you’re a negative b___ of limited intelligence. It’s not shallow to think a woman like her wouldn’t be interested in an idiot loser like Seth Rogan (in the movie). He’s not that good looking. Plenty of women go for losers every day just for their looks. I’m not one of them. I thought the Ugly Truth was hilarious, but I have a sense of humor; whether or not it was sexist. I’ve read that Val Kilmer is difficult to work with. Maybe he’s a bitch too. I still like him and think he’s a good actor. You should find help for your anger problems, Noneya. You’re attacking everyone on here. It’s true you can’t believe everything you read, they make things up.

    So in your opinion she should be a good little girl and shut up, because good little girls shut up and don’t question things. The fact that she’s right about knocked up being sexist or the lack of intellectual roles for women in Hollywood, really doesn’t matter to you at all. And how dare she ask for a nice hotel room or complain that it’s cold. Doesn’t she know she’s worthless and her feelings don’t matter! Maybe if more women in Hollywood spoke up about the objectification of women, women would become less entirely valued purely for their external. A serious socialitical problem which causes issues like anorexia which claims lives. But no, you’re right. She should be a good little girl and shut up, they should only be seen and not heard right? And they certainly shouldn’t ever think for themselves. Or have opinions on things, how dare she!

    If it wasn’t for Olivia de Havilland who revolted against Warner Brothers in the 1940s (and won – refer “The de Havilland Law”), Ms Heigl would have been chained to the studio for life and been forced to appear in whatever film that whoever signed her told her to appear in, as she probably would have been suspended a couple of times, and this added time onto any contract that actors and actresses signed. No studio contract – no film career.

    Ok, none of these are good ‘reasons’ that Katherine Heigl destroyed her own career, and half of them aren’t even reasons at all. I’m not a big fan of Katherine Heigl, but even I can see right through this. I’ve never watched Grey’s Anatomy, but I believe her that the writing is bad on that show. It looks awful. And uh, what’s the big deal about turning down an Oscar, anyway? Can people not do that? And maybe they did rewrite her character; I don’t know, but that seems like a legit reason to not want to do the show anymore. And omg, people can have opinions about their own movie. I don’t think Knocked Up was sexist, but other people can think that all they want! Also, the diva thing–lots of actors/actresses act like that ALL THE TIME and they don’t get villainized for it. Wtf? And I’m sure big stars–especially–ask for the best hotel rooms, etc. Please.

    As for Katherine – she sounds exactly like her character in the movie that she claims is “sexist” which is exact what a woman like her would say!

    There are actors everyday that take rolls and complete the movie and once it goes through post production they absolutely hate how it got edited and its not what they signed up for some speak up, some refuse to promote the movie and others just keep their mouths shut. I personally respect her for not keeping her mouth shut and not bowing down and playing nicey nicey with everyone. I really like her as an actress i did much like Knocked up just wasnt my cup of tea but i loved the ugly truth and 27 dresses and i absolutely love love loved life as we know it and i hope she has a long successful career. Now let the hating being lol

    I don’t care what people in Hollywood say,Katherine Heigl is a very beautiful woman.I don’t think she’s to worried about her career,yes! she has bad manners,but really, how do we actually know what she’s like.Look back at some of the biggest Icons of the silver screen,like Betty Davis,Joan Crawford,Gloria Swanson,alot of people said, they were hard to work with,but they went on to make more movies. .Heigl will go on to,she will also wind up marrying some big producer,director,or billionaire,who knows.I say there’s enough snotty bitches in Hollywood to go around.. Heigl should learn, it’s not what you say,it’s how you say it..

    Ella, the movie was sexist in the portrayal of women. It may have been less offensive than the Ugly Truth, but the movie absolutely displayed a stereotyped & one-dimensional sexist image of women.

  191. David Streever

    June 29, 2014 at 1:07 pm

    This article is incredibly sexist. When the article says she made ‘movie star demands’ that other ‘stars don’t make’, what they mean is, popular male stars don’t *have* to make those demands. They get catered to.

    She deserves to be treated on the same level as her fellow stars. That she has to *demand* equal treatment does not make her a diva; it makes her a woman trying to be treated equally.

  192. David Streever

    One would usually suggest the other, but I’m sure there are instances where that may be true. But then I go back to my original point – why would a comedy flick need to adhere to a high standard of equality? People need to lighten up.

  195. David Streever

    June 29, 2014 at 6:12 pm

    Well. You’re criticizing people who didn’t enjoy the portrayal of women in Knocked Up. I don’t know if you’re really the one to talk about people needing to ‘lighten up’ ;-).

    People have a right to not enjoy boring, cliche portrayals of women. Women have a right to be offended; after all, it’s the majority portrayal of them in media. I’d say that men have the right to be annoyed at the ‘dopey dad’ shtick we get saddled with, too. (Everybody Loves Raymond?)

    I don’t think it’s a question of being too serious. We all have the things we do/don’t like. Personally, I find it incredibly boring to watch cliches of women made by male creative times, and just am not interested in.

    Klepp,

    *No one* not a single person thinks that women should be able to serve in combat *because* they are women.

    People think that women should be able to serve in combat *if they meet all the non sex-based qualifications*. If a woman is capable of firing a gun, running, etc, as competently as she needs to be, there is no reason she can’t serve in the army in combat.

    Your post is sexist and ill-informed. Women are prohibited from serving *because they are women*, no matter how capable they are. *That* is what people want removed; an arbitrary sex-based refusal to let women serve.

    The Israeli army is nearly *half* women, and I don’t think you will find any examples of the women soldiers being a liability or a restraint on the army. It is stupid, shallow, sexist, and ignorant to pretend that women are inherently unable to serve in combat roles. Israel has proven that.

  197. David Streever

    June 29, 2014 at 6:18 pm

    Because money talks. If someone offered you a few million to be in a sexist movie, would you turn them down? PROBABLY NOT. Doesn’t mean you can’t have an opinion, does it?

    Do you agree with everything the company you work for does?

  198. ajleight

    June 29, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    Understandable – but no one says you have to like it. I just think you should pick your battles. Most comedy movies – and especially this one in particular – are all about exaggerating stereotypes.That’s why they’re funny to their target audience. I don’t see a reason why those who are not in this demographic can’t just ignore it. Especially when this particular film was very adamant about making both sexes demonstrate an over-the-top ineptitude equally.

    Be pissed about the newscasters showing more cleavage than Nicki Minaj or the companies paying men higher salaries; just insert whatever legitimate example you want. But I just find it very nitpicky to throw a fit over a comedy that is created to express the extreme exaggerations of a soon-to-be mom and dad and their unplanned pregnancy. Don’t rent it on Netflix – that’s all you have to do to ignore it.

    First off, she made $300k for the movie. A lot for a normal Joe, but not anything out of this world for a ‘leading lady’ in a major motion picture. And even if it had been a lot more money, using the excuse of “screw your morals, take the money and then bash the project later” is a sleezy viewpoint to have. I don’t think the movie was offensive in the least, but if she did than she should have passed.

  200. David Streever

    June 30, 2014 at 2:08 pm

    Hello,

    The movie is, actually, sexist, much like nearly every other facet of our culture; you can’t condemn women for participation in a world and culture that is inherently sexist.

    By your poorly-reasoned argument, women should just stay home, because they are being ‘sleezy’ (sic) by participating in the world.

    The reality is that Heigl may not have realized how sexist the film would be, and also may not have felt that she had many other options to make it in her field. Blaming her for the fact that the movie biz is overwhelmingly sexist is disingenuous and unfounded.

    In 2013, only 15% of the top 100 films had a female protagonist. The vast majority of films are made by men and star men, and even films with female protagonists will have *no* scene where two women talk about something other than a man.

    As a man, I don’t expect you to be aware of this; I haven’t been for most of my life. That’s the thing about being a man. What I *do* expect of you, myself, and any other man is to listen when a woman talks about sexism. If you feel a knee-jerk reaction to criticize her, her message, or rebut her, pause, do some self-reflection, and come back to it after a day or two.

  201. David Streever

    June 30, 2014 at 2:10 pm

    Yea how dare they be offended that a fellow employee is walking around hollering gay slurs at a gay man. I mean really, where do they get off being bothered by that?!?! We all love being berated, slurred, and insulted by an angry person.

  202. ajleight

    June 30, 2014 at 2:22 pm

    What you’re obviously missing is the key difference of intent. The movie is poking fun at the extreme of these stereotypes. For lack of a better analogy, take Django Unchained (I believe that was the title). Calling it a racist picture is completely missing the point. Just as calling Knocked Up a sexist film. They are both more than aware of their respective moral flaws and exploit them in exaggeration for the sake of humor. Truly sexist and racist material is the stuff that is not poking fun at these subjects, but rather flaunting them while sending a completely different message; such as a commercial for Doritos that features a scantily clad supermodel. The difference between the two is immense and if you believe otherwise than you’re just overly conservative and lack a sense of humor.

  203. EponineForever

    July 1, 2014 at 5:41 pm

    Yeah but that’s by choice she said herself that she’s making less films to spend time with her kids I’m sure she can get a role in just about any film she wants if she chooses to do that Heigl on the other hand can’t.

    You and 89 of the people that agreed are wrong any actor or actress with there salt need to be able to criticize and have input to the movies there name on and staring in maybe because of the way they were made led to there lack of popularity a million women aren’t capable of acting or being naturally funny like she is or the talent she has!!.. You seem overly hostile and angry and wants badly to throw her under the buss and using reasons not based on facts or is facts your enemy!!.. Cheers!!..

Elizabeth Taylor , Rita Hayworth , Ginger Rogers, and many more that fit what a movie star is . Its obvious you know nothing about the subject and aren’t bonified fans of movies or you would know that and not made you look foolish!!.. cheers!!!..

    I would disagree about the hostility and anger part you my friend are hostile and angry. The difference between criticising a film in the process and after its made is HUGE!. 99% of actors put their input into the film whilst it is being made so it becomes a role and film they are proud of but she didnt she made the film played the part and was more than happy to reap the benefits then she criticised the films and roles like she was forced to play them. it is called ungrateful. Yes I agree she is a good actress some of her films are my favourite but it still doesnt detract from the fact she is ungrateful. You dont bite the hand that feeds you its unfortunate that she is just learning that now.

    How familiar are you with English?

    Oxymorons are epigrammatic statements in which ‘a figure of speech by which a locution produces an incongruous, seemingly self-contradictory effect’.

    Epigrammatic means ‘terse and ingenious’

    So, you’re giving me false applause here; I’m neither terse nor ingenious. My statement isn’t a ‘seemingly’ self-contradictory one at all.

    One can oppose something without boosting something else. I can say I hate dogs. I can say I despise them and find them awful. It doesn’t mean I like cats, though.

    Please, review the definition of all of these terms in the dictionary (Sexism, Oxymoron, Epigrammatic) and return after you’ve done the required reading.

    For those of you who think some of this is fabricate and exaggerated.. If she thinks her career failed her…who is at fault. She’s had more opportunities, no one can say she wasn’t given starring film roles or had be reduced to being a bit part play on Grey’s Anatomy…Hollywood loves blonde, blue eyed pretty women..so what’s her excuse for career not being what she wanted it to be? She clearly burnt bridges. Maybe if you are Jennifer Lawrence or Jennifer Aniston you can talk down the film you starred in or the show you starred in..but there were people behind those show who may not appreciate it.

    She’s technically in the right for suing the drugstore (can’t recall name) as they said ‘she goes there for her purchases’ with the purpose of attracting Katherine Heigl fans. It’s the equivalent of another celebrity saying “I use proactive…”, but Heigl wasn’t paid. I’m unsure about the amount of money as I don’t know whether the store’s sales increased exponentially, if at all.
    If the demands were actually true, it’s unlikely she’s the only “movie star” to make them.

    According to some conspiracy theorists, she refused to be raped by the illuminati masters and they destroyed her career. Just like Dave Chappelle and some other “crazy” people. She did not join the “Eyes Wide Shut” group to become an illuminati darling (ICON). Sucks for her.

    I think everyone who’s making comments about Knocked Up being sexist really needs to figure out WTF sexist really means. A sexist statement is when an entire gender is grouped together and stereotyped. Knocked Up is the story of a small group of friends and only portrays those specific people. Never does it make broad statements about an entire gender as a whole. It is plausible that somewhere in the world there is a woman like Katherine’s character that exists. It is also plausible that there are many many others that are nothing like her. The idea that portraying one character negatively makes a show or movie sexist would therefore make any movie or show in history that portrayed any character negatively sexist as well. So that’s basically everything.

    I agree – no one forced her, and her habit of accepting bad movie roles is one of the reasons I don’t like her. But it’s entirely possible for actors to accept a role based on reading a script or film treatment and the end result being very different, after direction, editing, marketing, etc. make the film and even the character different than what they had imagined they were getting themselves into. Just look at a long list of actors who have signed up for what they thought were cool movie roles and the end results were crap (Catwoman, Elektra, The Hulk (Ang Lee version).

  228. Angelo

    It’s a movie. Anyone who thinks that is real life needs to step back and get a grip on reality. Movies are made for entertainment and actors and actresses act to make money. If you don’t want the job don’t take it if it’s sexist. Let someone else do it. Biting the hand that feeds you leaves you starving.

  232. Guest

    July 15, 2014 at 3:40 pm

    It doesn’t matter if what she works on is good or bad, sexist or not, up to her standards or not. It doesn’t matter. Why? because actors (in these kinds of productions) read the script before they sign up. If they don’t agree with it, they can say something and hope to be heard, or let it go and keep looking. The fact that she trash talks the shows she has been on after the fact is what has gotten her in trouble. Not even being a set diva is bad, some actors and actresses do it all the time, even the ones you think would never do it because they seem so nice/funny to you the audience. Actors: in TV, you NEVER trash talk the writers if you want to keep working, the writer is god, producers are Jesus. In movies don’t trash talk the director and/or producers, and if there is a cast member who is above you, don’t trash talk them either because they may have pull. Also, be nice to make up and wardrobe teams and you’ll find yourself looking amazing. Be nice to all your crew and crew will be more than nice to you, and never forget that crew is not working for you, but WITH you.

    Yes, Heaven forbid that a woman criticize sexism when she sees it. She may not have originally realized it was sexist, not having access to the entire script & filmed final, and may have only been seeing a small part of the movie, but regardless, how *dare* she speak up later when she saw that it was trite, stupid, and sexist.

    With her first big role she had status? That would surprise me.

    Regardless, I’m not sure how much ‘knowledge’ you have regarding hollywood. No matter what did or didn’t happen, Heigl was right; the movie was sexist.

    That’s the reality with big cultural problems like sexism; small-minded bigots like yourself will attack and criticize people for pointing out sexism. How dare she indeed! You were so comfortable, ensconced in your ignorant and simplistic world view.

    A. Does that have anything at all to do with the above?
    B. Are you referencing the Casey Neistat film? If so, yes, it’s a comedy; an excellent one.

    Do you actually have a point, though? If I re-read my comments above, am I lecturing anyone on morality? It seems like your misunderstanding/misreading of my comments has you on this weird kick of suggesting film ideas.

    I criticized the article as shoddy and sexist: not a morality issue.

    The actual first ‘moral judge’ was yourself, when you said that Heigl’s behavior was inappropriate. Are you maybe projecting an issue you have here?

    I’m sorry if I’ve hurt your feelings or upset you by saying that Knocked Up is a dumb comedy that relies on sexist tropes. Do you feel better now? Did I fix whatever was wrong?

  248. Berserker

    July 20, 2014 at 5:31 am

    Sexism isn’t a morality issue? Excuse me? Gender-based discrimination isn’t immoral? Ha. I love it, David. Proof from your own mouth you are a preening fool. Your whole argument is that Katherine Heigl is being treated unfairly (in this article and in Hollywood) because she’s female. Of course you have no basis for asserting this other than the laziest kind of anti-male message-board soapboxing. Worse, you have no idea who you are defending. You disregard the widely reported — and true — reports of nastiness and cruelty this once-rising star inflicted upon coworkers — other women of lesser means and fewer opportunities with no ability to fight back. You feel nothing for them because they aren’t celebs. Which means, in addition to being 100% wrong, you’re a pathetic wannabe star-f***er. Maybe just make a commitment to stop lecturing people about things you know nothing about. Start there, David. Because eventually you’re going to run your mouth in a forum where somebody actually knows what they’re saying and they’re going to expose you for the sorry little a$$clown you are.

    No; sexism is a systemic problem. The biggest problem is that men see sexism as conscious hate; it’s much bigger than that. It’s an entire system.that benefits men, with and without our knowing about it.

    ‘Implicit’ sexism is a well-documented phenomenon, that shows that for most people, our ‘default’ mode of thinking & engaging with the world is sexist, in that it favors men & the choices of men over women.

    You may not understand it; you may be unhappy that people are considered with sexism and not cooing & ooing over your precious little head, but instead of lashing out at a stranger on the internet & reveling in your man-child idiocy, you should probably evaluate what it says about you that you get this angry at people who just don’t like Knocked Up or a poorly written article you read.

    Your new comment is awaiting moderation; I’ll hit it now.

    1. Congratulations; you caught my auto-correct typo. I meant ‘concerned’, not ‘considered’.
    2. I never said that systemic racism is mutually exclusive with immorality. I pointed out that systemic, or implicit, sexism is usually done without any malice or ill-will. While there may be moral implications, I’m not talking about them; I’m talking about implicit systemic sexism.

    You’re the one lecturing morality issues; I’m not. I’m explaining implicit sexism on the premise, or assumption, that my ‘audience’ is unfamiliar with the sexism they are exhibiting and are therefore doing it by accident or without evil intentions.

    Again, you’ve projected; ‘learn what words mean’. I’m familiar with the meaning that words have; you may be familiar as well, but instead of engaging with your brain, you’re just pointlessly arguing with a stranger on the internet. You absolutely aren’t demonstrating intelligence or familiarity with English here, and I’m not sure what you think you’re doing, but it’s kind of funny on my end.

    I didn’t realize my ‘boyfriend’ was done with me. I’ll have to go cry in my corner now and work on my boring personality. Thanks for the chat!

    The script may not have originally read as sexist as the end product. Movies go through many rewrites during the production process; often the rewrites are not written by the original author. It’s tone could have also changed by the director’s choices.

    But who has declared that her career is “over” and ” limited almost any possibility of a comeback”? According to IMDB in 2014 she has one film already released, 2 completed, is well into filming a TV series, and has one film in post-production for 2015. It sounds like her career is doing well.

    Sorry but if you’re going to cash in on the movie, then you don’t go bad mouthing it. If you don’t like the movie, don’t partake in it, but don’t do a cash grab, get paid and then insult the work you just did. Makes you look like a greedy, whining, spoilt child, who isn’t grateful for work & who can’t stand by her morals BEFORE she gets paid. Don’t like the movie/script, don’t star in it!..

    Tanith,
    I’m sorry, but pointing out sexism isn’t ‘bad mouthing’. Sexism is a constant underlying system.

    When you tell someone that they’ve done something racist/sexist, they always say, “No way not me! I’m not a bad person!”

    That isn’t the point; racism & sexism are *ingrained* in our culture. We don’t always recognized them when we encounter them; sometimes, we’re racist/sexist and don’t realize it until later.

    It’s perfectly valid for a woman to realize and state that a movie she was in was sexist later. Ultimately, a movie in its final form can look very different from the script/screen treatment that an actor sees when they sign on to. Even if the movie *didn’t* change at all, Heigl may have changed, and may have recognized sexism with time and distance.

    It is *never* taboo for a woman to point out sexism. Women are the authority on sexism. If Heigl, a woman, said the movie was sexist, it *is*. Period.
