There has been a long-standing rumor that Katherine Heigl is really rude and hard to work with. Katherine Heigl put those rumors to rest yesterday.
In a Facebook Q&A promoting her new NBC show State Of Affairs, a fan asked the question:”I’ve heard rumors that you’re very rude. What’s your thoughts?” Heigl responded with this: “Yeah I’ve heard those too honestly I don’t think I am, nothing makes me more uncomfortable than confrontation or hurting someones feelings and I would never, ever actively do so on purpose.” “Of course just like any human being I’ve made mistakes and unwittingly or carelessly spoken or acted but I always try to make any wrong right. That doesn’t mean I won’t stand up for myself by drawing boundaries and asking to be treated kindly and respectfully but I don’t do that with any rude or unkind intentions just with the same strength and honesty I think every one of us is entitled to.”
There is a theory on why Heigl always produces such movie flops like One For The Money. The theory is that she gives directors and producers a hard time with her diva-ish behavior.
She has been bashed by one showrunner. In October, Shonda Rhimes (creator of Grey’s Anatomy) bashed her in an interview for The Hollywood Reporter stating: “I don’t put up with nasty people and I don’t have the time for it.”
State of Affairs premieres November 17th on NBC.
