Rumors of Katherine Heigl being a diva are not new, and they’ve been circulating around Hollywood ever since she left Grey’s Anatomy and became a ‘movie star’. At least, until people stopped going to her movies and others in the industry refused to work with her.
In an extensive new profile in The Hollywood Reporter, Katherine is lambasted by various industry insiders, who claim that she is very ‘difficult’ to work with. One source explained, “She can cost you time every single day of shooting. Wardrobe issues, not getting out of the trailer, questioning the script every single day.”
Apparently, Katherine’s mother – Nancy Heigl – just made everything worse. Another source added, “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. The call would be, ‘This is the worst craft service we’ve ever had! There’s nothing to eat! This is the worst wardrobe!’ You knew that every day you were going to get slammed. The frustrating part is [Heigl] is incredibly talented and smart.”
Yet another source adds that Katherine was a big diva on set, explaining, “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.”
Apparently, since Katherine has been trying hard to break back into television after her movie career failed so spectacularly, she was considered for a lead in a pilot. However, that idea was shut down when the producers decided that she wasn’t worth the risk. However, she is in talks now to do a new CIA-drama — supposedly. But who knows how far that one will go, especially with all the drama surrounding her.
It’s incredibly sad when talented actors throw away their futures because of bad manners and bad management. Katherine’s a strong actress, and she does very well in romantic comedies. Of course, the genre of romantic comedies has been fading fast for the past few years, but it’s unfortunate that she has proved herself untrustworthy with other roles as well. She brought this all down on herself.
