Katherine Heigl Has “Nothing but Love” for “Knocked Up” Co-Star Rogen


Mark Schafer ©2015 CBS Broadcasting, Inc.(LOS ANGELES) — Katherine Heigl has responded to Seth Rogen’s comments about their falling out after making Knocked Up together.

In a press scrum after a CBS Television Critics Association event in Los Angeles yesterday, Heigl told reporters she has no hard feelings toward Rogen.  

“I think that he’s handled that so beautifully and I just feel nothing but love and respect,” she said, according to Entertainment Tonight.

She added about the 2007 film, “It’s so long ago at this point, I just wish him so much goodness and I felt that from him too.”  

In a 2008 Vanity Fair interview, Heigl made waves — and she admitted, may have hurt her career — after she called the hit “sexist,” and slammed how Rogen and director Judd Apatow made the women in the movie out to be killjoys to the fun-loving, pot smoking male characters.

The portrayal didn’t sit well with Rogen and the director — and many of the movie’s fans. 
Heigl subsequently confessed to Howard Stern that she regrets calling out the pair, saying she just didn’t like how her character came across.

Rogen also turned to Stern to set the record straight about the movie earlier this week. 

“People seemed to like it,” he said. “We were funny together. I was having a really good time, and then when I heard afterward that she didn’t like it, that she seemed to not like the process, and she did not like the end product either, I think when that happens —  also your trust feels somewhat betrayed.”

Rogen told Howard Stern earlier this week that while filming, he thought the duo would end up making a ton of movies together, but afterwards he was shocked to hear Heigl didn’t like the experience or the movie.

“I thought she hated us,” Rogen said. “We just heard she didn’t like it and that it seemed like she didn’t have a good experience making it and that she didn’t feel the product was reflective of how she thought she should be portrayed. And when that happens, as someone who’s an egomaniac, I just get hurt by that.”

Rogen had similar sentiments during his Monday conversation with Stern, where he added that he regretted the back and forth after Knocked Up affected Heigl’s career.
