Though she co-starred in one of the biggest (and most enjoyable) films of the year -- in a role that catapulted her from that chick on Grey's Anatomy to mega movie star -- Katherine Heigl has decided to turn around and take a giant dump on the film that "made" her. In a new interview with Vanity Fair (via Us Magazine), the actress called Knocked Up "a little sexist" and adds: "It paints women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as goofy, fun-loving guys. It was hard for me to love the movie." And your point is? First up, has Heigl ever watched a romantic comedy before? Doesn't she know that not all the characters can play freaks and geeks -- that some have to play it straight in order to up the conflict, the tension and the comedy? And what's wrong with being goofy and fun-loving? Isn't that the whole point of the film -- that Heigl plays a career gal on her way to a great promotion when she gets "knocked up" by a moron?
Seriously now, if she wants to go that route, then Rogen and Rudd could easily comment and say the film portrays all men as morons; as guys who don't want to commit, who hate their lives and who have no clear goals at all. If anything, Heigl and Leslie Mann are the most level-headed out of the whole lot. I don't see that as being "uptight," I see that as being stressed out that you just received a promotion only to find out that your idiotic one-night-stand knocked you up. I mean, what was her character supposed to do in that situation? Smoke a joint and play Nintendo? Reality check for Heigl: Guys obsess over sex. The website they wanted to create is a real website that exists in the real world. These characters were based, in some ways, on real people. I hate it when these actors and actresses trash a film they were in without saying what they would've done to correct the situation. Katherine Heigl thinks Knocked Up was sexist? Well I think 27 Dresses looks like absolute sh*t. Prove me wrong.
