Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl is as known for her blonde locks as she is for her sometimes brash demeanor. Imagine our surprise when she dyed it brown!

At the premiere of her new movie The Ugly Truth last night, Katherine Heigl showed off her new hair color (which does compliment her brown eyes). Looks good.

But do you miss her regular blonde look (left)?

You really can't go wrong, but tell us in survey poll below which hair color you think looks better on the outspoken, talented and beautiful Katherine Heigl ...

Katherine Heigl portrays a woman who is clueless in the ways of romance in The Ugly Truth. In real life, the 30-year-old actress - who is as beautiful as she is outspoken - thinks she has it pretty well together on that subject.

"In my early 20s, I didn't know what I wanted," the InStyle cover girl reflected in the magazine's August issue, "If you're just getting to know yourself while you are in a serious relationship – it's like you're trying on different personalities."

The Grey's Anatomy star says that whereas at first "you try to see what fits, but there is that real you in there somewhere," she came around when she met singer Josh Kelley, who is now her husband of 18 months, in 2005.

"I was fed up with trying to be somebody else, and got really lucky and met a great guy who loved me for me," Katherine Heigl told the fashion magazine.

Heigl believes her experiences have not only helped her learn what she wants in romance but also what she wants in a movie – and it always rated PG-13.

In a real relationship, Katherine Heigl says, "you're probably going to drop F-bombs once in a while. You're going to say some things that are kind of harsh."

"And you're definitely going to talk about sex. It doesn't have to be Snow White and Prince Charming. That's my problem with a lot of romantic comedies."

The Ugly Truth co-star Gerard Butler says this attracted him to working with Heigl, who he calls the "sexiest, smartest, sassiest, funniest actress out there."

Following the season finale of Grey's Anatomy, and the gossip that dominated the series all year long, the buzz was that either T.R. Knight or Katherine Heigl, or both, would be leaving the show at the conclusion of the drama's fifth year.

Well, it now appears that T.R.'s George O'Malley will move on into the light after his tragic bus accident, while Katherine's Izzie Stevens will beat brain cancer.

Knight is leaving the show for good, according to EW. Meanwhile, E! News reports that Heigl "will be back," though neither ABC or the star have commented.

BEST FRIENDS in real life and on TV, T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl have long been the center of Grey's Anatomy gossip. Looks like one's going and one's coming back.

Season Five's finale left Grey's Anatomy viewers wondering if Izzie, with cancer, would awake after flatlining, while George struggled to survive a bus crash.

The impression you got was that Izzie was ready to return to her life, while George was fine passing on. Looks like this turned out to be the correct conclusion.

Jessica Capshaw, who plays cute lesbian surgeon Arizona, has been signed as a full-time series regular for the upcoming sixth season, premiering in September.

In a word ... seriously!?

As Grey's Anatomy faded to white, Izzie stood in the elevator in her prom dress from Season Two, with George in his new Army uniform staring back at her. The presumed afterlife encounter was the last we will see of either ... until September, anyway.

Katherine Heigl at New Year's Even Premiere

After almost an entire year of off-screen and on-screen drama regarding the future of Katherine Heigl (Izzie Stevens) and T.R. Knight (George O'Malley), their status remains ambiguous after last night's heart-stopping Grey's Anatomy finale.

Izzie was getting better, and George finally had a purpose, enlisting as an Army doctor. But then she coded at the end, while it a bus crash patient whose facial injuries made him unrecognizable turned out to be George. He crashed, as well.

Creator Shonda Rhimes was still coy in an interview this morning on the fate of Heigl and Knight. Here are some questions about the two beloved, likely-dead characters, and those who we know will be back, that linger as we await Season Six ...

  • Where does Dr. Bailey go from here?
  • Will Lexie and Mark move in together?
  • Are Cristina and Owen like, a couple now?
  • Will Jessica Capshaw (Arizona) be around next season?
  • As the baby bump becomes more and more visible, is Ellen Pompeo's pregnancy going to be written in, or will she go on leave?
  • Was the Meredith-Derek wedding - officiated by themselves, and with hastily written vows recited via post-it note - the real deal?
  • Will this be the most talked-about episode since the second season finale (2006), in which Izzie wore said prom dress as Denny passed away?
  • Is this ending the result of the producers' own ambiguity over whether George and Izzie will die - and/or the actors' willingness to come back?

What do you think? Was it outrageously bad? Are you exhausted in every way? Did you find the Grey's Anatomy season finale exhilarating?

Shonda Rhimes, Grey's Anatomy's creator and executive producer, wants to set the record straight: T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl are not leaving the show.

"That was a very interesting rumor," Rhimes said. "And it's not true."

Heigl and Baby

Speaking at the 40th NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles, Rhimes was referring to the recent comments by Grey's Anatomy cast member James Pickens Jr., in which the actor seemed to confirm their impending departure.

Are best friends T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl leaving Grey's Anatomy this season or not? This question has persisted for months - and the answer is still unclear.

"That was absolutely taken out of context," said Rhimes. "Things happen, and ... I think rumors become fact very easily. And you know I don't like to tell you what's going to happen on the show – but that is a rumor."

Not sure how "Yes, she is" and "He's going too" could be taken out of context exactly, but James Pickens, Jr., is now spouting the company line as well.

"We've been living with these rumors for a long time," he said. "When the question was posed to me, I was more trying to congratulate Katie and T.R. on whatever they were going to do. But yeah, I don't have any special info about it."

Mmm hmm. It's hard to know what to even think anymore. But we can tell you this fact with absolute certainty: Katherine Heigl pictures are hot!

Two tall blondes stand before you below.

One begrudgingly stars on Grey's Anatomy, where her character occasionally talks with and makes love to her dead ghost fiance in a weird story possibly written as payback after all her public bashing of the show that made her famous.

The other married Howard Stern for some reason.

But put the colors of their similar dresses together and what you get is a pretty patriotic pair! Beth Ostrosky was red hot in Black Halo in NYC, and Katherine Heigl kept it cool at a boutique opening in Los Angeles ...

Who wore this dress better?

Grey's Anatomy spoiler alert! After months of rumors that stars Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight may be leaving the show, their co-star James Pickens, Jr., a.k.a. The Chief, has added fuel to the fire by sort of confirming they are:

"Yes, she is," he said when asked by Us Weekly if Heigl will exit the show that made them famous. "Wherever Katherine goes, I wish her nothing but the best."

Heigl on Today

As for Knight, Pickens said, "He's going too."

The network and studio say they cannot confirm anything, and Katherine Heigl's and T.R. Knight's personal reps have declined to comment on the subject.

However, an ABC source says, "There's no way [James Pickens] could know that, because nothing has been decided yet. Nothing has been written and [Heigl and Knight] are still working out what will happen next season with the network."

T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl want out of Grey's Anatomy.

According to inside sources who work closely with Grey's Anatomy, it is likely that Heigl and T.R. Knight will make an exit at the end of the current fifth season.

Both have asked to leave. However, ABC needs to sign off on letting them out of their contracts, which extend six years, and that hasn't been done.

So why did Pickens say they are leaving?

"I don't think James meant to say what he did," one insider said. "I think he was thrown by the line of questioning and didn't realize what he was saying."

No one actually expects you to repeat as World's Most Desirable Woman (a title won by Eva Mendes in '09, as we reported yesterday). But falling 80 spots?

That's the fate of Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl, who came in at a modest #81 after taking home the title in 2008. What a difference a year makes.

Why the precipitous decline? A few theories:

  • Lack of celebrity gossip.
  • Her chain smoking habit.
  • She's been off the market (marrying at Christmas 2007).
  • Her desirability mirrors that of her much-maligned TV show.
  • She rarely, if ever, shuts her damn yap and offers about as many quotes dissing Knocked Up as she did Knocked Up quotes.

We may never know the reason, but it certainly isn't because Katherine Heigl got any less hot. Case in point: click to enlarge some classic pics of her below ...
