Katherine Heigl Covers InStyle August 2009

Katherine Heigl (in Roberto Cavalli) graces the August 2009 cover of InStyle. Here’s what the 30-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actress opened up about:

On meeting her husband, singer-songwriter Josh Kelley: “I was fed up with trying to be somebody else and got really lucky and met a great guy who loved me for me. It’s hard—I think women have to struggle to define themselves, to find what they want. I keep telling my friends, seriously, write down what you want and make it specific. Like, I’m talking, do you want a beach house in Venice? Be specific and be creative and define not only what you want in your career but what you want in your personal life.”

On family tragedies—her brother’s death in 1986 and her mother’s battle with breast cancer: “Here’s the deal: This is what my family and I have been through, and although we’re not perfect, we are survivors. [My siblings and I] were taught to overcome—although that’s not the right word because you don’t really overcome that kind of stuff, but you do learn to live with it and you learn to live despite it… No one in my family ever said, ‘Life’s not worth living because this happened or that happened to me.’ It’s always worth living. And living well.”

On being criticized last summer for saying the Grey’s Anatomy material she’d been given to work with wasn’t Emmy-worthy: “Now I’ve got this moniker that I’m the foot-in-the-mouth gal, and I keep thinking, In what way? Because I said something you don’t agree with? Because I said something you don’t like? I’m just telling you my opinion. I hate the idea that I can’t be honest about how I feel about things because it’s going to piss somebody off who feels differently. That seems preposterous to me.”

    Ms. Heigl is the hottest actress in Hollywood now IMO, brain, beauty and honesty. Love her. Good luck with The Ugly Truth. I’ll be seeing you and Gerard at the movies next week.

    I dislike her to no end! i have heard from good sources in Hollywood that she is the absolute biggest nightmare to work with. She is so mean to people on the set. To the “little” people. Ugh. Why is she even an actress? Yuck.

    She’s so real and down-to-earth and yet people still criticise. Just because we’re used to a bunch of fake celebrities who’ll often say whatever needs to be said to make people smile and love them, doesn’t mean they all have to be that way.

    Katherine is proud to be who she is and she’s honest. That is something to be valued, not criticised just because you disagree with what she might say. Way to go, Katherine!

    She’s not one of my favorites but she has the right to speak her mind and if people can’t deal with it then it’s on THEM!

    @Jolie hot chin not:

    I don’t know either. Like I said in previous note, she’s not my favorite, but she has a right to her opinion. Now, if she’s treating people badly, then she’s really a Bit** because you don’t treat people badly in Hollywood or anywhere else. It will come back and bite her A**!

    this hair style is not good for her. it makes her look older than she is, imo.

    Don’t like the shoot much she is gorgeous and it does not show that. She is an amazing woman and I just adore her. She speaks her mind but is never malicious about it. Really tired of people giving her a hard time for it. I was an extra on her movie in Atlanta and she was amazing. Had time for everyone and in the scene we shot shook hands and introduced herself to all of us. When I saw her a few days later on another shooting day she even remembered my name and I did pretty much nothing. She is really down to earth and friendly and with a wicked sense of humor.

    Huh Says:

    She’s rocks. I’m tried of these fake celebrities who just do the PR quotes. There is nothing there. I love Heigl she knows what she wants, she knows she is still growing as a person, and she sticks to what she says. I know many people that worked with her, and loved working with her. I can’t wait to get this magazine and to see The Ugly Truth.
