Everyone Hates Katherine Heigl

by at . Comments

Katherine Heigl is a lightning rod for controversy and you'll find a lot of people that dislike the 31-year-old movie star. Just ask Katherine Heigl herself.

Honestly has never been her problem. On the contrary, the former Grey's Anatomy actress' brash assessment of people and projects has alienated fans.

"It's something I've spent a lot of the past year really thinking about, really trying to figure out," she said of this image problem of her own making.

Katherine Heigl is hot ... and a little hot-headed.

The sexist nature of Knocked Up. The bad writing on Grey's. She calls it like she sees it, and has watched her popularity decline as a result of her rare candor.

Rather than hail her as a refreshing antidote to bland PR-trained celebrities, the public has dismissed her as a pouty, ungrateful diva. Why? It's all in the tone.

Now starring in Life As We Know It with Josh Duhamel, Heigl says from now on, she's aiming to be more careful about the things she says - in public, at least.

"I don't want to be the person digging my own grave," she told KTLA.

"I don't want to put myself out there in a way that would hinder this great thing I've got going. Because I'm really excited and grateful to kind of be in the position I'm in now and have the opportunity to be in movies like this - I don't want to jeopardize that."

Heigl's honest remarks about her image - try getting another star to admit she has issues - are ironically refreshing, as the attitude causes her problems.

The N.Y. Times observed the same thing, writing that she "unwittingly created her image problem" with remarks "not particularly scandalous that nevertheless spawned tabloid feeding frenzies, because she didn't just mouth promotional platitudes."

Heigl, naturally, is in full agreement.

"As he says in that article, you know, nothing I said was particularly scandalous," she says. "It just had a tone. And I think that's the most important thing that I've sort of learned as I get older and grow up a little bit and get a little less defensive."

"I don't feel like I have to defend myself so much. I can just let go of the tone and still say what I gotta say and be honest ... but maybe not so edgy."

This is exactly why I love her- it is so easy for people to be neutral, not not get involved or speak their minds and maintain a squeaky, innocent image. For the same reason I loved Kelis for defending her use of fur, I love Heigl for speaking her mind. She's an intelligent person, not a puppet. I'm the kind of guy who picks a side when his two friends are fighting rather than stay friends with both so that's probably why I don't care about controversy.

I love Katherine Heigl's open opinion to things. I think that she should be allowed to say what she wants and not hold it in. Other celebrity get to say half of the same things as her and not get all the crap thrown at them like she does. Why is that? I hate seeing all the negative going to her all the time. Others deserve it too. I have been a fan of Katherine forever, since she started her career. That is never gonna stop. I support her no matter what she does or what she says. Everyone has the freedom of speech.

I Love Katherine Heigl. I think she should be allowed to say whatever she wants and not be careful. How many other celebrity get to say the same things that she says and get away with it? Why all the hate have to be on her? I have loved her for years and support her no matter what. She is my favorite actress and It will remain that way.

I honestly love Katherine Heigl's outspoken personality but because she's a celebrity everything she says and does is magnified, and that has to be so annoying having to always walk on eggshells screw what people think be your self... ;)

Don't like her acting or her movies quite frankly. All seem to be the same story. Boy and girl meet, don't like each other, end up falling in love. She has like three movies with that same theme now. BUT, with her doing what she is for animals, my wife and I have become new fans of hers.

I don't think that people hate her they just think that she is annoying. She is kind of like the female equivalent of Ashton Kucher. Which, ironically, they both recently starred in the most annoying movie of the year in Killers.
