While ungrateful is a word often linked with Katherine Heigl here in Hollywood (tho we do want to give her props for her fab work with animals), the Life As We Know It star addressed her "image problem" this morning—at least, that's what the New York Times called it.
"Yeah, I think that was fair," Katherine fessed about the article's assessment that she hasn't been her own best spokeswoman.
"It's something I've spent a lot of time in the last year or so really thinking about or really trying to figure out, because, obviously, my career is important to me, and I'm really passionate about trying to keep it."
Wow, a star being honest about herself in Hollywood? We can totally get on board with this!
"I don't want to be the person digging my own grave or put myself out there in any way that would sort of hinder this great thing I've got going," Heigl said on L.A.'s KTLA morning show, noting she is very "grateful."
"I've spent a lot of time trying to figure out where I kind of went off track and how and why and what I can do in the future to avoid that.
"The reality is, as he says in that article, nothing I said was particularly scandalous. It just had a tone," the movie babe said. "That's the most important thing I've learned as I get older...I can let go of the tone.
"I'll say what I gotta say and be honest, but maybe not so edgy."
Now this is a Heigl we can dig. We hearted the babe for standing up so vocally for pal T.R. Knight back during Isaiahgate, but unfortunately her good heart was trumped by her big mouth in a lot of situations.
We thought the interview sounded genuine. Hey, at least she acknowledged it. Most celebs would have either walked off the set or become defensive. Just don't lose all of that tone, K. We still like a little sass, sans diva.
