Katherine Heigl has gotten quite the reputation in her career for being a hard person to work with, but apparently she doesn’t see it that way. Of course she doesn’t, no one wakes up and says “Wow, I’m a pain in the butt!” — do they?
She is currently promoting her new show “State Of Affairs” and recently addressed rumors that she caused difficult situations on past movie and television sets. In fact, she stated that she and her mother Nancy both conduct themselves in nothing but a professional and respectful manner at all times.
When asked about her terrible reputation, she revealed, “I can’t really speak to that. I can only say that I certainly don’t see myself as being difficult. I would never intend to be difficult. I don’t think my mother sees herself as being difficult. We always… I think it’s important to everybody to conduct themselves professionally and respectfully and kindly.”
Is it us or does it sound like she isn’t actually speaking of herself with that statement? It sounds as if it’s a bit snide like she feels she’s not getting her due respect behind the scenes. What do you think?
She went on to say, “If I’ve ever disappointed somebody, it was never intentional.”
A source behind the scenes said that both Katherine and Nancy Heigl were very hard to deal with. The insider said, “I have never experienced anything like Nancy Heigl. It’s about the mouth. ‘F*** you. You are a f***ing liar.’ Whatever you’d say, you were an idiot.”
An insider on the set of Katherine’s 2007 movie “27 Dresses” also added on to the reports of discord. The insider revealed, “There were movie star demands – big rooms, the mother there, all the stuff. It was just a sense of entitlement. The biggest stars don’t do that kind of thing.”
Despite all of the reports that she is super difficult, she says that she hopes that her many remaining fans will enjoy her return to television in “State Of Affairs”. She said, “I think that this opportunity is — and I think a lot of people want to know why this show, why come back to television – it’s because it’s an extraordinary role, it’s an extraordinary opportunity, and an extraordinary story, and it’s an opportunity for me to flex some different muscles and show a different side of myself as an actor and a performer and a storyteller that I hope my audience will be excited about and love.”
