Heigl is ungrateful

Well, after riding the Judd Apatow gravy train straight on to the A-list, it looks like Katherine Heigl has jumped straight off of it, since in an act of incredible ungratefulness, she has slammed KNOCKED UP as being "a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days. I’m playing such a bitch; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you’re portraying women? Ninety-eight percent of the time it was an amazing experience, but it was hard for me to love the movie." Way to say thanks to the guy that made her a f*cking star! Didn't she read the script before she signed on, or did she take the role purely for the money/career furthering and just suck it up? Because I have to assume that when she agreed to starring in the movie, the characters were probably already like that. And was her character really such a bitch? Because I didn't really think so, I just think that Seth Rogen is just a million times more likable than she is. I guess that stands in the way of 'lov(ing) the movie', even when it is the first movie that she has made that hasn't been an enormous turd. I mean, say what you will about BRIDE OF CHUCKY and UNDER SIEGE 2: DARK TERRITORY, at least they didn't exaggerate characters.

Thank god she's taking the $6,000,000 fee she now earns thanks to KNOCKED UP (up from $300,000) to do respectable, pro-female films like 27 DRESSES, where her character has been a bridesmaid 27 times but never a bride, because she's too humorless and uptight to enter a meaningful relationship or confess her love for her boss.
Extra Tidbit: I would put money on KNOCKED UP being the best film that she ever makes.
