It’s no secret that Katherine Heigl was not exactly the most pleasant person to work with, but it looks as though the actress has now seen the error of her ways — maybe.
During a Facebook Q-and-A on Saturday, a fan asked the former Grey’s Anatomy actress about the rumors that she is rude and difficult to work with, and Heigl did not avoid the question.
“I’ve heard rumors that you’re very rude. What’s your thoughts?” the fan wrote.
“Yeah I’ve heard those too….honestly I don’t think I am…nothing makes me more uncomfortable than confrontation or hurting someones (sic) feelings and I would never, ever, actively do so on purpose,” she explained. “Of course just like any human being I’ve made mistakes and unwittingly or carelessly spoken or acted but I always try to make any wrong right.”
“That doesn’t mean I won’t stand up for myself by drawing boundaries and asking to be treated kindly and respectfully but I don’t do that with any rude or unkind intentions just with the same strength and honestly I think every one of us is entitled to,” she added.
Another fan was curious to know more about Heigl’s Grey’s Anatomy days and whether she is actually on good terms with anyone from the show.
“Are you in touch with anyone from grey’s still? T.R. [Knight] is the one I see you most with,” the fan wrote.
To which Heigl replied, “T.R. is family! He’s my daughter’s Godfather and one of the best friends I’ve ever had!! Justin [Chambers] and his lovely wife Keisha are good friends, Kate Walsh is my lady hero! I pretty much love everyone else on Grey’s! Great cast, great group of people!”
Shonda Rhimes certainly has no plans to work with Heigl in the future. She previously revealed during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she now adopts a “no assholes” policy, but that doesn’t mean Heigl is out of work. In fact, she’s far from it because she is currently enjoying work on her new TV series State of Affairs, in which she plays CIA briefer Charlie Tucker.
And she’s heading back to our screens when State of Affairs premieres on Nov. 17 at 10/9c on NBC.
