Why do people hate Katherine Heigl?
Once upon a time, the young actress was one of the highest-paid performers in Hollywood and on the fast-track to becoming America’s sweetheart. Now the former Grey’s Anatomy star has a hard time getting work at all. It’s so bad, in fact, that she recently did a commercial for kitty litter. This, in itself, isn’t anything major, though a lot of media sites are gleefully jeering at her fall from grace. The way D-Listed wrote the introduction to their article about that commercial shows just how deep that feeling goes.
After the crusted-over phlegm ball stuck in Hollywood’s throat named Katherine Heigl left Grey’s Anatomy and was labeled an unhealable anus fissure by the ruler of primetime television Shonda Rhimes, she acted in a few bombs, redefined the meaning of “perfect” when she did a ZzzQuil commercial and starred in what was supposed to be her big comeback show. It never saw the light of a second season.
What happened to cause this fall from grace? The video above pulls out numerous examples that have led to the current situation, and it’s pretty eye-opening.
Heigl is trying to make amends for her past actions. In a recent Howard Stern interview, she discussed how she dissed the move Knocked Up, where she played a TV personality who gets pregnant after a hook up with a pot-adoring, directionless man played by Seth Rogen. She’d made the comments in a Vanity Fair cover story where she basically criticized the movie in which she was starring. To Stern, she said, “I absolutely owe anyone an apology I unwittingly offended or disrespected,” she said, later concluding: “I get it. It was an immature dumbass moment.”
