Katherine Heigl Slaps 'Greys' Writers in Face

Katherine Heigl Slaps 'Greys' Writers in Face

Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl said on Wednesday that she did not put her name in for Emmy consideration this year because she did not feel she was given material to justify it.

Now, a Grey’s Anatomy insider fights back and says, “The show bent over backwards to accommodate her film schedule, and then she criticizes the show for lack of material?” the insider told EW. “It’s an ungrateful slap in the face to the very writers responsible for her Emmy win in the first place.”

Last year Katherine was advised by her own manager/mother that she “didn’t have a shot in hell of winning,” and made a point of telling the Primetime Emmy Awards audience in her speech.

Grey’s Anatomy has slipped in the ratings this past season but is still a top 10 show.

    amazing how the talented ones are the most humble. heigl should be counting her blessings that someone without any acting ability has made it as far as she has.

    What a hypocrite! I don’t know why anyone would want to cast her in movies.

    I stopped watching Grey’s long ago because of her, and I don’t buy tickets for her films, because she’s so obnoxiously self-righteous.

    Haven’t seen this past season, so I can’t compare. But I do think she could have formulated her opinion a bit more diplomatically, and should have talked to the writers earlier on, if she was unhappy with the script. But I also think, even if the script isn’t excellent, a really good actor is still able to make a decent show out of it by playing esceptionally well and putting in the rigtht interpretation to spice up whatever the script is lacking.

    Oh, and by the way, if you have a second to spare, please visit my new blog about stylish design for kids and feel free to give me some feedback. I’d really appreciate it :):)

    Honestly she’s so right. Grey’s went down since mid of s3 and I hope after taht amazing fianle everything will be up soon. But Izzie’s storylines sucked badly.

    I stopped watching Grey’s cause of Izzie/Katherine so if she wants to go, good lol

    and #5 is indeed right
    a great actor manages to turn a ****** role in something great
    (ex: Robert Knepper in Prison Break does an amazing job with T-Bag) so again stfu Katherine -.-

    I thought it was unfair that she didn’t get the equal paycheque of her Greay Anatomy co-stars. Now I realise what she’s all about. Katherine STFU and be greatful for what you’ve got. She’s not that great an actor. If she keeps it up she won’t have a career at all.

    What an arrogant b…h! If she feels she doesn’t deserve to be nominated, fine, she could say there are more deserving actresses, but no; she had to say it was because she wasn’t given good enough material for her to shine! Another slap!

    It’s true; the talented ones are humble and respectful. The good thing is when GA ends she’ll be back to anonymity!

    Only problem of Katherine is that, she speak to much….

    lol, she’s lucky she has her own production company now…i think other movie people will not want to hire her that much she’s trashed everything she’s done after she’s done it. KU, 27 Dresses and now grey’s. At least in her company she can hire herself even thought anotehr actress could probably do better.

    She should take her own advice and just stop talking……i love watching her shot herself in the foot all the time its so entertaining :)

    Last season Pompeo went all last Summer whining that she didn’t understand her character, She is lucky people think she is dumb as a doorknob, and actually took her words at face value, and not as a slam to the writers.

    Heigl hasn’t the luck of being as stupid as Pompeo.

    wuah I hate how her fame got to her head! gooosh!
    she’s just annoying! and rude!
    look at Patrick, he manages to be successful AND a nice person! He says he’s greatful for what GA helped him achiefe.. and Katie just doesn’t see that if it weren’t for GA.. she’d still be hidden somewhere and wouldn’t have gotten those roles in Knocked up and 27 Dresses and all! ANNOYING!

    Miss Heigl, I would like to know if you can write.

    You are not Edward Norton or Kenneth Branagh, do not even imagine that you are Emma Thompson.

    Prove it to anybody that you can write better than the writers in your show, until then, you better shut up. Or tell it to your hairdresser, it looks like you need one!

    Girl speaks her mind & is blasted for it.

    She is right. What exactly did she have to work with last season ? Nothing. Good on her declaring herself out of the Emmy race.

    Given Greys is down 25% in ratings & she has a thriving movie career, I don’t blame her for wanting some decent material if she is to stay on Greys.

    #18 – I agree with your post. Heigl is a bankable movie star now, so everything she says is jumped on regardless.

    #18 when EP and for that matter PD and SO voice their displeasure with the show they do it with tact and manage to NOT come off as whiny brats. Their critisism of the show is constructive and not bashing like Heigl does here. But i guess its all in her plan to get out of the show, maybe she should take pointers from IW :)

    Who wants to bet that she only have like 2 lines in the season opener??

    (Sorry for my numerous spelling mistakes :))

    Honesty in Hollywood is rare. Everyone knows that “Greys” had a rough season, even those of us who love it.

    Based on her high profile, she could have gotten a nomination just for showing up to work.

    She and the show don’t deserve it this year and she knows it. And deep down, I think most fans do too.

    Her bashing Grey’s Anatomy also effects other people’s jobs connected to that show.
    You supporters of her so called “honesty” forget the rippled effect her bad mouthing does. Less people watch the show and that puts not only the careers of the other actors in jepordy but the rest of the monior cast crew who most likely don’t make as much as her.
    If she were off the show and wanted to speak openly that is one thing BUT to bad mouth her show while on it, makes her to be an idiot. And in that small will backfire on her. THEN she has the nerve to still bring Isiah Washington into the mix to deflect attention off her ingratitude.
