Knocked Up star Katherine Heigl has revealed she would consider doing a sequel after burying the hatchet with co-star Seth Rogen.
The US actress gained a reputation for being difficult in Hollywood after falling out with Rogen and director Judd Apatow over the movie’s tone, but says she would now consider doing a follow-up.
Wouldn’t that be fun? she said.
What do you think that looks like? Them 10 years later. Do they have more children? Have they made it? Are they still together?
Following the 2007 comedy, the former Grey’s Anatomy star told Vanity Fair that the film was a little sexist.
It paints the women as shrews, as humourless and uptight and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys, she told the magazine.
She explained she thought the movie exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it on some days.
I’m playing such a b****. Why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you’re portraying women? she asked.
Rogen eventually responded to her comments, saying he felt betrayed and had no idea of her thoughts while shooting the film.
As we were making the movie together, honestly, I was like: I would make a dozen movies with her. I would be whatever the s****y version of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan is, he said at the time.
When I heard afterwards she didn’t like it – she didn’t seem to like the process or the end product either – your trust feels betrayed.
Heigl also also faced criticism for withdrawing her name for consideration at the 2008 Emmys, saying the material on hospital drama Grey’s Anatomy did not warrant a nomination.
The comments warranted a response from the show’s creator Shonda Rhimes, who claimed she would no longer put up with nasty people while discussing the star’s exit from the show.
Nobody wants to hear things like that about themselves, Heigl said on Monday.
One thing I think I’m relatively good at is asking myself and truly addressing: Is there an issue here?, she added.
You have to be accountable for your behaviour. Now maybe I go a little too far in beating myself up, or self evaluation, or not trusting my own instincts.
