Katherine Heigl was the third choice to play Alison Scott in Knocked Up, but instead of being thankful and gracious for the movie that made her a star, she took every opportunity to shit all over it, accusing it of being sexist towards women. Writer/director Judd Apatow and co-star Seth Rogen have never really said anything about it. Until now. US Magazine reports:
But Rogen says he doesn’t see how Heigl’s new comedy, The Ugly Truth, makes women look even better. “That [movie] looks like it really puts women on a pedestal in a beautiful way,” he quipped on Howard Stern’s SIRIUS XM radio show on Thursday. Added Apatow, “I hear there’s a scene where she’s wearing … Underwear …with a vibrator in it, so I’d have to see if that was uplifting for women.” Apatow figured Heigl was “probably was doing six hours of interviews and kissing everyone’s ass, and then just got tired and slipped a little bit” when she made the remarks to Vanity Fair. Regardless, Rogen said, “I didn’t slip and I was doing fucking interviews all day too … I didn’t say shit!” Even more baffling, said Apatow, “We never had a ‘fight’” with Heigl while filming. “Seth always says, it doesn’t make any sense [because] she improvised half her shit,” Apatow said, adding that she “could not have been cooler.” Apatow said he hasn’t spoken to Heigl since her remarks. He doesn’t know if he’d make a big deal about it, either. “It all depends on how much coffee I have had that day,” he said. “If I was fighting … with someone else about something I may handle it wrong, and if I’m in like total Buddha mood, I’d be like ‘I feel sad that she hasn’t learned the lesson of her journey yet,’” he said. After the remark, “[You think] at some point I’ll get a call saying ‘Sorry, I was tired…’ and then the call never comes,’” he said. Rogen said he doesn’t feel bad since Heigl seems to run her mouth and most people, including Grey’s Anatomy staff. “I gotta say it’s not like we’re the only people she said some batshit crazy things about,” he said. “That’s kind of her bag now.”
I’m so sick of this cunt that I really don’t feel like wasting time talking about how much I hate her, so I’ll just tell you guys about my fabulous new window treatments. I think the terra cotta really diffuses the natural light and highlights my unique sense of style and flair.
I’m only posting pictures of Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, because they are a happily married model/actress from California and a brilliant comedy writer. I can’t seem to shake the parallels:
