Katherine Heigl: I don’t believe my own press

New York – Former Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl says she’s happy to make headlines, but stories about her in the media are often exaggerated.

Heigl’s comments in the past have been known to make waves in the entertainment world.

She called the 2007 comedy Knocked Up, in which she starred, “a little sexist”. Later, she refused to put herself up for an Emmy nomination, saying Grey’s writers didn’t give her enough awardworthy material.

Heigl says she doesn’t have “any major problem” with what’s written about her. But she adds that she tries to keep her perspective so that she doesn’t believe her own press.

The actress was speaking in New York at the world premiere of her latest dramedy, Life as We Know It, which opens across the United States next week.
