Katerine Heigl apparently wasn’t happy with how women were portrayed in Knocked Up and she complained to Vanity Fair.
Speaking to Vanity Fair in 2007, Heigl famously remarked that the comedy “paints the women as shrews,” while the men look “lovable.” She added, “It was hard for me to love the movie.” (She later said she was “disheartened” her remarks became “the focus of my experience with the movie.”)
Seth Rogen came back commenting that her new film “The Ugly Truth” doesn’t make women look any better.
“That [movie] looks like it really puts women on a pedestal in a beautiful way,” he quipped on Howard Stern’s SIRIUS XM radio show on Thursday.
Added Apatow, “I hear there’s a scene where she’s wearing … Underwear …
with a vibrator in it, so I’d have to see if that was uplifting for women.”
Hmm, it’s really odd that Katherine didn’t complain about the paycheck she received? I mean, I’m not saying some movies don’t negatively portray women, but if you don’t like it, don’t take the gig!
