Everyone Hates Katherine Heigl

September 12th, 2013 // 42 Comments

Shortly after filming Knocked Up, Katherine Heigl took a huge dump on the film calling it “sexist” despite the fact it catapulted her career. She later followed that up by shitting on the writers of Grey’s Anatomy by not submitting herself for an Emmy because the writing wasn’t good enough. However, her career was allowed to move along because she was making bank in romantic comedies, or at least was, and then everyone got sick of her (My guess? The Killers with Ashton Kutcher. It was cancer on toast.) and now the knives are out. Below are the highlights from a new The Hollywood Reporter piece about Katherine’s attempts to save her career by returning to television and how, along with her mother, she’s made that close to impossible by opening her face:

On making things worse immediately after the Knocked Up quote:

Production had gone smoothly on 27 Dresses, says a high-level source involved in the film, until it was time to promote the picture overseas. “There were movie-star demands — big rooms, the mother there, all the stuff,” says this person. ” ‘We need the presidential suite at The Bristol!’ It was just a sense of entitlement. The biggest stars don’t do that kind of thing.” The prospect of working again with Heigl lost its allure.

On being a pain in the ass filming One For The Money:

But another insider on the project recalls “desperately difficult situations” with Heigl, from casting to wardrobe and beyond. (Heigl, who was paid $12 million, didn’t have casting approval but insisted on exercising it, says this source.) “She can cost you time every single day of shooting,” says this person. “Wardrobe issues, not getting out of the trailer, questioning the script every single day. Even getting her deal closed at Warners was hard. She hit that point of ‘no.’”

And her mother not helping with that:

“I have never experienced anything like Nancy Heigl,” says this source. “It’s about the mouth. ‘F— you. You are a f—ing liar.’ … Whatever you’d say, you were an idiot. The call would be, ‘This is the worst craft service we’ve ever had! There’s nothing to eat! This is the worst wardrobe!’ You knew that every day, you were going to get slammed. The frustrating part is [Heigl] is incredibly talented and smart.”

On how returning to television is working out for her:

A top producer at another network says there were reservations when Heigl’s name came up a few months ago for a project that had been greenlighted to pilot: “On many levels, she would have been perfect for the role, but all of us said, ‘She’s not worth it.’ ” But sources say NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt personally pushed for the deal. He declined comment.

For the record, there were some nice quotes about Katherine Heigl, but they were boring just like the information about her actually landing a show with NBC three days ago. Also, that would involve journalistic integrity, and my last post was about a nipple. Who are we kidding here?

    She always looked like a typical Yenta

    You can tell she’s 1 small step away from being one of those chunky blondes with the face fuzz that sweats even when its cool out.

    It’s a shame, really. She was so hot when she was fifteen. The short, sad, passage of time.

      I totally wanted to hit that when she was on that alien show, whatever it was called. It was all downward spiral from there.

    • Inner Retard

      Had a crush on her too when I was younger. But I had to learn the hard way too that beauty is only skin deep. Sometimes the prettiest girls have the ugliest personalities.

      • I used to consider her one of the most beautiful women I’d ever seen. Unfortunately, as you point out, beauty IS only skin deep. And as the other saying states, “Ugly goes all the way to the bone.”

    • anonymous

      She’s still pretty hot. In one of her last movies (one where she plays a rookie bounty hunter) she was kinda naked. Looked good.

      But yeah she’s had that total b*tch stigma for years now.

  6. Inner Retard

    An arrogant condescending cunt acting like a horse’s ass who would not have guessed that’s bad for her career. – Who are Megan Fox and Katherine Heigl, Alex…

  7. JC

    Why the hell does a healthy, functioning adult need or want to have her mother with her at all times?

    Wait…the problem is with “healthy,” “functioning,” and/or “adult,” isn’t it?

    Your movies are just fantasy wedding porn for halfwits in Hagen Dasz-stained sweatpants, Heigl. Get the fuck over yourself.

    • Smapdi

      If you change “mother” to “father” in your first sentence, and drop your last sentence, you could re-post this under the Courtney Stodden story.

    Nobody likes an opinionated woman with personal ambition, Katherine Heigl. That’s something the liberal left and conservative right agree on. But instagram yourself in a two piece swimsuit looking surprised under a shower of skittles and everyone will get on board.

    • Trek Girl

      You’re comparing two completely different things.

      The Instagram women are on Instagram. They are showing their bodies and usually talking about silly things and regurgitating “inspirational” quotes. There is not much money involved in what they do or lots of people involved in getting those pictures posted.

      Heigl is an actress working in movies with big budgets. When she holds up production there are consequences for nearly everyone involved. When her mom is critical of things and adding cuss words into those complaints, people have to deal with that and fix the problems. When she demands expensive suites at times when it may not be easy to get them, someone has to make it happen. When she bad mouths the film or show she’s in, that can affect how how the project does and how the public thinks about it. Her intelligence and talent, which the source(s) have no problem admitting to, are not worth the trouble she may cause if what they say is true.

      Do you see the difference?

      • JungleRed

        I believe I was talking to Katherine Heigl, but since you ask…

        Russel Crowe is twice the spoiled disagreeable cunt that Katherine Heigl is, but doesn’t get half the venom directed at him that she does.

        Do you see the difference?

      • Russel Crowe is immensely fucking talented with multiple Oscars to back it up. To mention her name in the same breath as his is an insult.

      • jacksengorgedglans

        yea but russell crowe isn’t a subhuman aka woman

      • Trek Girl

        I was going to write a reply, but Jezzer and Slappy Magoo said what I was going to say better than I could have said it. I’ll just leave it at that.

      • Of course s/he doesn’t see the difference, or care. S/he was obviously just trying to score points.

        And for the record, I don’t know anyone — ANYONE — who thinks Russell Crowe isn’t an utter cunt. He gets called out for his bullshit all the time, as does Mel Gibson. Katherine Heigl isn’t being called out because she’s being singled out for being a strong, opinionated, independent woman. Katherine Heigl is being called out because she has a consistent history of being incredibly hard to deal with and risky for a project’s PR, because she’s likely to start shitting all over a project as soon as her check clears.

        Hollywood will put up with all manner of shit if you put asses in seats and/or if you’re so bloody talented everyone wants to work with you. No one is paying actual money to see Heigl’s shit movies anymore. No directors or producers seem to want to sing her praises. Maybe her old fans will be willing to watch her on network TV for free(ish), and then she’ll once again have worth by Hollywood standards. Personally, I think her fan base has turned meh on her. She has to be in something amazing to wipe the stink of her reputation off of her and I don’t think she has it in her to be in something amazing. Whereas Crowe, with his reputation for being a total wanker, tends to deliver strong performances even in not-so-interesting movies or big bloated messes, so at least talented people seek him out.

      • Yeah, she’s in trouble on a couple of levels. Of course Hollywood is all kinds of sexist, but a major problem for her is that rom com fans in particular like to identify with the main character; likability (or at least the appearance of it) is key; they probably don’t want to see some self-entitled cunt who thinks her shit doesn’t stink land the hot guy. Plus, to get back to the more standard issue woman in Hollywood problems, she’s not aging fantastically based on these pics; there are several more talented, versatile and better looking actresses around her age and older; not to mention younger actresses like Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence.

    • If she takes your advice on the Instagram/Skittles thing, please provide a link.

    Oh, she hasn’t been sucking enough jew-cock in Hollywood? Is that it? Now the jews are angry and getting their revenge.

  10. She has catfish eyes like Britney. Although Hiegl looks more like a channel catfish and Spears looks like a flathead.

  11. I don’t need to read a Hollywood Reporter piece to learn why I should hate her. That face is enough for me.

  12. Her career peaked for me after Steven Seagal’s Under Seige: Dark Territory in 1996.

    • MD2020

      That movie taught me three of the most important lessons in life:

      1. Chance favors the prepared mind.
      2. Assumption is the mother of all fuck-ups.
      3. A man does not put his wife as “+1″.

  13. She is a horrible person with an odious personality. She deserves to never work again in Hollywood. Arrogant bitch.

  14. EricLR

    Wait, I’m having a psychic vision:

    I predict that even now, cadres of women are being born who will one day become narcissistic actresses who will let even the slightest amount of fame go straight to their heads and become impossible, demanding shrews to deal with on set and off. None of these future actresses will know the name “Cybil Shepard” and will only vaguely be aware of any of the thousands of similar self-destructing actresses who preceded them into and then out of Hollywood.

    Self-entitled cunt rag.

  16. anonym

    IS THAT why she’s doing zzzquil commercials now?

    haha. that’s what you get for burning bridges.

    Myrtle, Madge, Mildred, Martha, Melba… lots of options if she decides on a name change.

  18. She bring no irreplaceable quality to anything. Replace her with some other generic blond chick, preferably with less mileage.

  19. She’s an obnoxious cunt and deserves to disappear from the Hollywood scene. There are people who would kill to be in her position and would appreciate it a hell of a lot more.

  20. When she went off on the Grey folks I knew this bitch was trouble. White, entitlement conscious bitch.
    She’s up there with those other two wasp whores: Taylor Swift and Claire Danes.

  21. She had Grey and she was kicking ass in movies. Yet she wasn’t appreciative at all. She shitted on everyone.
    Fuck her!!!

  22. She’s Mormon… so….. yeah.
