Katherine Heigl Explains Her Break From Acting: 'I Stopped Challenging Myself'

Katherine Heigl lets out a boisterous laugh as she arrives at LAX Airport on Tuesday (July 8) in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old actress was joined for her flight by her mom Nancy.

Katherine recently covered Marie Claire UK‘s latest issue, where she talked about her career.

“I stopped challenging myself. It became a bit by rote and, as a creative person, that can wear you down,” Katherine said. “That was part of why I took that time off, to ask myself, “What do I want? What am I looking for?” and shut down all the noise.”

FYI: Katherine is wearing a Bella Dahl button down.

    More of this ❤ and less of this ❣

    She’s a good actress who wasted so much potential on fluff. I liked her Plum movie but it was too little too late. She should have done it after 27D.

    I thought it was because she’s a b!tch to work with? Can’t get many jobs when you act entitled and yell at people.
