Katherine Heigl Got Brutally Honest About Being Blacklisted In Hollywood

“What is your definition of difficult? Somebody with an opinion that you don’t like?”Posted on January 29, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. ETKatherine Heigl just opened up about the impact of being branded “difficult” and “unprofessional” in Hollywood, something which essentially got her shunned and blacklisted in the entertainment industry. Mike Coppola / WireImageThe Grey’s Anatomy actor has faced numerous accusations of being difficult and high-maintenance over the years, which has resulted in harsh backlash and a less-than-glowing reputation. ABCIn an interview with Vanity Fair following the release of 2007’s Knocked Up, which she starred in alongside Seth Rogen, Katherine called the movie “a little sexist,” adding: “It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days.”She went on: “I’m playing such a bitch; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you’re portraying women? Ninety-eight percent of the time it was an amazing experience, but it was hard for me to love the movie.”However, Katherine’s response to the movie didn’t sit well with many, and when Seth was asked about it in 2016, he said his trust felt “somewhat betrayed” after reading the comments she’d made. And things didn’t get much better when Katherine pulled herself out of the race for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama at the 2008 Emmys, a move that was considered a “swipe” at Grey’s Anatomy producers for cutting back her role. Jon Kopaloff / FilmMagic”I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination, and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the academy organization, I withdrew my name from contention,” she said in a statement at the time. “In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials.”Now, in a candid interview with the Washington Post, Katherine explained how the impact of the backlash affected her, noting that getting older has put things in better perspective.”I may have said a couple of things you didn’t like, but then that escalated to ‘she’s ungrateful,’ then that escalated to ‘she’s difficult,’ and that escalated to ‘she’s unprofessional,'” she said. “What is your definition of difficult? Somebody with an opinion that you don’t like? Now, I’m 42, and that shit pisses me off.””At the time, I was just quickly told to shut the fuck up. The more I said I was sorry, the more they wanted it,” Katherine continued. “The more terrified and scared I was of doing something wrong, the more I came across like I had really done something horribly wrong.”Steve Granitz / WireImageKatherine went on to explain the impact of the constant backlash, revealing that her family and friends were “scared” because of her rapidly spiralling mental health.”I regret deeply that I scared them like that,” she said. “But I just couldn’t control it. I had no tools.
