Knocked Up


When Katherine Heigl slammed the movie she starred in alongside Seth Rogen in 2007, the Canadian actor admitted he felt fairly taken aback by the star's take on their time filming together.

Speaking to Howard Stern at the beginning of the week, Seth explained that he had fond memories of filming Knocked Up with Katherine, and was surprised that the Grey's Anatomy star didn't feel the same.

And yet despite the less-than-subtle hammering Katherine gave Seth and filmmaker Judd Apatow in the press following the movie's release almost a decade ago, Seth wished Katherine the best this week.

And it looks like Seth's kind words had an effect on the star who has been known to call out her co-workers over the course of her professional career.

Reflecting on Seth's chat with Howard on Monday, Katherine said: "I think he's handled it so beautifully. I feel nothing but love and respect."

While attending the 2016 Television Critics Association Summer Tour Party on Wednesday, Katherine acknowledged that she never doubted the pair's mutual respect, and was keen to riciprocate.

"It was so long ago, and I just wish him so much goodness. I felt that from him, too," she told the press.

Aw, you guys!



It's no secret that Katherine Heigl was far from impressed with Knocked Up – a movie which she starred in alongside Seth Rogen – when it eventually hit cinema screens in 2007.

In the year following the comedy's release, the Grey's Anatomy star slammed the apparent gender divide created by the film's producers.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Katherine insisted the film portrayed "women as shrews, as humourless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys."

And it sounds like her co-star, Seth, was not only stunned by the actress's take on the comedy, but also couldn't help but take many of her comments quite personally.

Speaking on Howard Stern's radio show this week, Seth echoed the thoughts of millions of movie fans.

"I thought we had a great dynamic, people seemed to like it, we were funny together," Seth recalled. "I was having a really good time, and then when I heard afterwards that she didn’t like it…your trust feels somewhat betrayed."

Surprised that the actress didn't speak up during filming, Seth added: " We have a very open process. We’re like, 'You have the ability to say anything at any moment. I don’t like how I’m coming across here."

Katherine, who is known for speaking out against directors and producers she has worked with over the course of her career, experienced professional backlash as a result of her comments – something which Seth feels regret over.

"I respect the fact that maybe that perhaps she realises it has hurt her career. And I don’t want that to have happened to her at all," he told Howard.

Insistent that Katherine, who played Alison in the movie, had every right to voice her opinion before, during and after production, Seth admitted he felt it was unfair her career may have suffered as a result.

"Especially if she is being honest, the only people who, in this situation, should in any way take anything from it is me and Judd," he argued. "Because we are the ones she was talking about. For other people to not work with her because she didn’t like her experience with us is crazy."

We've said it before and we'll say it again, that Seth is a stand-up lad.



Knocked Up star Katherine Heigl admits she hasn’t made  that much money in the past few years.

The former Grey’s Anatomy actress is starring in an upcoming independent film Jenny’s Wedding but the filming won’t be going ahead if it doesn’t reach its $150,000 target by 28th March.

So far it has only reached $32,311 and when asked by TMZ if she could help them out, Heigl replied: “I haven’t made that much in the last few years, man. I gotta support my family.”

Unfortunately, if this movie doesn’t go ahead it won’t be the first flop for the star. In 2013, Heigl starred in The Big Wedding which failed to earn big bucks, even though it had a pretty good cast including Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Robin Williams and Susan Sarandon. Her 2012 flick One for The Money also flopped and rumours had it that the 35-year-old was difficult to work with.

Katherine claims to have earned $12 million in 2010 for her role in Life As We Know It but things seemed to have gone downhill since then; however, she will be joining the cast of CIA in NBC’s upcoming drama so hopefully things are on the up.
