Back in 2007, Katherine Heigl told Vanity Fair that Knocked Up painted the female characters "as shrews. It was hard for me to love the movie."
Well, America loved it and it made Heigl a star! Now her co-star and director - Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow - are finally commenting on those frustrating remarks on Howard Stern's SIRIUS XM radio show...
Commenting on the actress' latest rom-com, The Ugly Truth, Rogen jokes: "That looks like it really puts women on a pedestal in a beautiful way." Apatow then added, "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."
Ouch! But Apatow is actually quite forgiving, saying that Heigl - whom both agree was a pleasure to work with - was probably just exhausted from doing so many interviews and "slipped a little bit."
Rogen, however, still seems kinda pissed. "I didn't slip and I was doing f***ing interviews all day too," he claims. "It's not like we're the only people she has said some bat**** crazy things about. That's kind of her bag now."
Do you hate Heigl?
