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!’”
Katherine says she wishes she apologized to co-star Seth Rogen and director Judd Apatow in a different way.
“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.”
