Katherine Heigl Talks More Smack

Katherine Heigl has publicly expressed her disdain for the show that gave her a career, Grey’s Anatomy, by abstaining from competing for an Emmy award this year. She stated that she "did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination.” Oh reeeeally. Could it be she’s simply beating everyone to the punch by taking herself out of the running, thereby saving herself the pain and embarrassment of what just might be an unappreciative Emmy outing?

Regardless of her motivations, this is not the first time Heigl has bitten the hand that feeds her, nor will it likely be the last. After Knocked Up, the movie that gave her street cred as an actress who could do more than melodrama (as well as, um, a career in films), was released, she blabbed all over town about how sexist it was, and how it portrayed women as “shrews, as humorless and uptight.”

In fact, I would argue that her character (or at least her interpretation of it) was the only one that portrayed women as shrews, as humorless and uptight. Leslie Mann’s character was arguably the funniest in the film, to say nothing of Judd Apatow’s talented daughters Iris and Maude Apatow, as well as Charlyne Yi, who played Jodi. All of those characters were hi-larious.

Which pretty much leaves us with a big ol’ complainer who really doesn’t seem to know how lucky she is to even have a place setting at the Hollywood table, a table never lacking in tall, blonde, large breasted loud-mouths.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there’s a long line of directors waiting to cast Heigl and subsequently have their films publicly bashed. I’m just wondering how much longer she’ll be able to take the high road of self-righteousness.

It's awful tricky to be a self-righteous movie star when you're not starring in anything.
