Katherine Heigl’s Emmys appearance highlights the real reason Hollywood ‘cancelled’ her.

“I don’t put up with bullsh*t or nasty people.”

That same year, Heigl addressed rumours that she was ‘rude’, during an interview with talk-show host Meredith Vieira, which has recently resurfaced. 

“I’ve heard rumours that you’re very rude – what are your thoughts?” Vieira asked the actor in 2014.  

“You know what, I’ve been saying I don’t think I am, but I’m going to be really honest right now: I’m not,” Heigl responded. 

“I know I’m not. I don’t need to think about it. I’m not a rude person, I’m not an unkind or mean person. I would never go out of my way or consciously hurt anyone’s feelings or make them feel bad or uncomfortable or not be professional and do my job – I like my job.”

Heigl went on to say she would “continue to stand up” for herself.

“I’m not going to stop standing up for my right to be heard, my right to be treated respectfully and professionally in return, my right to draw boundaries. I am a strong woman and I’m not going to apologise for that.”

Two years later, Heigl’s Knocked Up co-star Seth Rogen spoke on the record about feeling “somewhat betrayed” by her comments about the film. 

“As we were making the movie, honestly, I was like, ‘I would make a dozen movies with her,'” he said in 2016.

“People seemed to like it,” he said. “We were funny together. I was having a really good time, and then when I heard afterward that she didn’t like it, that she seemed to not like the process, and she did not like the end product either, I think when that happens – also your trust feels somewhat betrayed.”
