Never Fear Everyone — Sounds Like Katherine Heigl Is Still A Bitch

Katherine Heigl in Los Angeles April 2013Guys, when are we going to stop being polite and start getting REAL about Katherine Heigl. I know we’ve all been hearing whispers (and shouts and yells) about her being extremely difficult to work with on set, but I just wanted to reassure any of you who were worried that she might have mellowed with age like a fine, increasingly polite wine…DON’T WORRY, SHE HASN’T.

Now, let’s also remind ourselves that anyone who is still hiring Katherine Heigl deserves a large amount of accountability in this tale, because she’s never had a reputation for being anything but a bitch…and yet as recently as 2014 (aka a full year into the future), IMDb tells me that she has multiple movies coming out. Sigh.

But the movie we’re here to talk about today is Life As We Know It, which came out in 2010, netted Katherine $12 million, and was described by a source as just one of the ‘desperately difficult situations’ that Katherine has the ability to create on set:

“She can cost you time every single day of shooting. Wardrobe issues, not getting out of the trailer, questioning the script every single day.”

And apparently Katherine was not the only problem; her mother, Nancy, was also well known for flinging abuse at the crews of Katherine’s films:

“I have never experienced anything like Nancy Heigl. It’s about the mouth. ‘F— you. You are a f—ing liar.’ Whatever you’d say, you were an idiot. The call would be, ‘This is the worst craft service we’ve ever had! There’s nothing to eat! This is the worst wardrobe!’ You knew that every day, you were going to get slammed. The frustrating part is [Katherine] is incredibly talented and smart.”

Well yeah! You just described her talents earlier! You said she was able to cost you time (which equals money!) every single day! Not every star can boast of that. And, of course, this wasn’t a one-time thing, as similar complaints were lodged during her 2008 movie 27 Dresses:

“There were movie-star demands — big rooms, the mother there, all the stuff . . . It was just a sense of entitlement. The biggest stars don’t do that kind of thing.”

This is all terrible, but it turns out there is some good news out of it — her behavior in previous situations has apparently saved us from having to see her in new projects. Another source says she was being considered for a pilot, but that her involvement was vetoed on account of her being the worst.

“On many levels, she would have been perfect for the role, but all of us said, ‘She’s not worth it.’ “

That’s the first good news I’ve heard about Katherine Heigl since…ever.

      I hope this doesn’t also apply to that Zzzquil commercial she’s in.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Hahahaha ZINGGG!

    • Olivia Wilson

      Man, that sucks for her career. No one wants to be bothered with a diva.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I don’t even be bothered with watching one.

    • Katie

      I know she’s a diva, and i would probably hate her in real life. But she is suuuuch a good actress. I saw Big Wedding (mistake!) and she was the best part of it. I’m sad she actually sucks.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I feel semi-differently, I think — I like the movies she’s in, but find her pretty forgettable. But that might also be because I’m biased from hearing all the diva rumors. Who knows.

    • KCarey

      When you add in that she tends to play the same person in every film… I don’t think that makes her all that good of an actress. Working woman who’s too picky and busy for love, ends up falling for the ‘perfect’ guy who’s a loser/jerk/not interested and then falls for the guy who’s right for her, but takes the movie to figure out. That’s at least 4 of her movies right there.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        You should be in the movie business, kid! I’m gonna make you a star!

    • Alyssa

      Why the hell does she bring her mother with her to work??? Is her mom her manager or something? Seriously though the fact that she brings her mom to movie sets, manager or not, should be the biggest red flag.

      • Char

        As I said in my post, I have a feeling that her mom is her manager but I’m not 100% sure. I’m sure a quick Google search would answer this for both of us, but I can’t be bother. Ha!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        At age…what? Thirty-something? Get weaned!

    • Char

      I worked on a photo shoot with her a couple years back when I was doing some wardrobe styling intern work. Being in tune to celeb culture, I obviously knew of her bad rep as a bit of a diva, so I thought, at the very least, it would entertaining to see how much of that was true.

      Needless to say, she didn’t come off as that much of a pain. I should mention her mother was in attendance as well. I think she is her MOMager but not 100% sure on that. It may have been because it was a very relaxed shoot, she and her mother were happy with the wardrobe or that I just didn’t have a lot of direct contact with her but she seemed pretty whatever to me. Not overly friendly but not completely a bitch either. I think the worst of it was, because I was the lowly intern, I had to go on a run to get Malbec and Patron for margaritas for her and mom to drink in the middle of the shoot.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Oh that’s interesting! Glad to hear she didn’t treat you badly, but bummed that it’s not juicier gossip!

        Although now you have me thinking about malbec margaritas, and that sounds disgusting.

      • Char

        Ha! I should have said that the other way around: Patron for margaritas and Malbec. They were not mixed into one disgusting concoction, fortunately.
