Katherine Heigl Talks About Calling 'Knocked Up' Sexist, Getting Cold Shoulder From Seth Rogen
Katherine Heigl is opening up about controversial comments she made about her 2007 film Knocked Up.
The 37-year-old actress was asked about calling the movie “sexist” during an interview on The Howard Stern Show.
“It was dumb,” Katherine said. “I liked the movie a lot. I just didn’t like me. She was kind of like, she was so judgmental and kind of uptight and controlling and all these things and I really went with it while we were doing it, and a lot of it, Judd allows everyone to be very free and improvise and whatever and afterwards, I was like, ‘Why is that where I went with this? What an a–hole she is!’”
“I did it publicly instead and kind of tried to say, look, this was not what I meant and this was an incredible experience for me and they were incredibly good to me on this movie, so I did not mean to sh-t on them at all,” Katie said. “I’ve thought about like, writing a note. I feel embarrassed. I don’t want it to feel insincere on any level.”
She added, “I ran into [Seth] at a restaurant and I didn’t quite realize that it was as serious as it was…I walked up like, ‘Hey, guys!’ And they were like very, like, [cold] and I was like, ‘Oh, you’re really mad, I didn’t realize that it was that bad. I get it.”
