Katherine Heigl Covers 'InStyle' October 2010
Here’s what the 31-year-old Life As We Know It actress had to share:
On playing a role that hit close to home: “My experience as Holly in this movie was my experience as Katie in real life. There’s this thing where, as a new mother, you’re just constantly going, Am I doing this right? Am I handling this right? Am I playing with her enough? Should I be talking to her more? You’re just nervous, so you’re almost creating more drama than is necessary.”
On adopting daughter Naleigh: “[Husband Josh Kelley] and I had been talking about adopting for a year before it actually happened. I had spoken to him about it before we got engaged because I wanted to be sure we were on the same page-not everybody feels the way I do about adoption.” (Heigl’s parents adopted her older sister, Margaret Leigh, from Korea.) “I don’t know why it was so important for me to do it before we had biological children, but I felt like I had been waiting for and dreaming about [daughter] Naleigh for a long time.”
