A brave human went ahead and asked famed on-set drama queen Katherine Heigl—who was hobnobbing to promote her new NBC show, State of Affairs, as part of the Television Critics Association's summer press tour—whether she considered herself (and her mother-manager) difficult to work with. She doesn't.
Every year, the Golden Raspberry Awards asks movie viewers to pause for a moment and reflect on what the fuck they are doing with their lives. Are you proud of the fact you sat through an hour and a half of Battleship? Are you embarrassed? Did it boost your understanding of tactical naval strategy? What color best represents how you feel?
It should come as no surprise that The Grey AKA Liam Neeson Fights Some Goddamn Wolves topped the box office on Friday. The Hollywood Reporter predicts an $18 million weekend, which would be more impressive if it weren't competing against so many shitty movies. In second place, the Katherine Heigl vehicle One for the Money, which has the distinct disadvantage of no wolves and a fairly contentious star. Even Heigl, at one point, admitted that no one liked her.
Here's the trailer for One for the Money, an upcoming action comedy adapted from the 1994 novel by Janet Evanovich. Out January 27, the movie stars Katherine Heigl as an obnoxious New Jersey girl named Stephanie Plum, who—after losing both her husband and her job—decides to make ends meet by becoming a bounty hunter, because obviously. It also features Sherri Shepherd as a hungry prostitute and Debbie Reynolds as the requisite dinner table turkey-shooting grandma. So kooky and likable, just like Katherine Heigl!
The Onion News Network imagines a terrible future in which the cinemas are overloaded with Katherine Heigl films: specifically nineteen romcoms, fourteen screwball romps, and one attempt at indie credibility.
- Mel Gibson entered a "no contest" plea to his charge of battery against Oksana Grigorieva yesterday and will receive no jail time. Mel was accused of hitting Oksana while she held their kid on January 6, 2010. Then there was the whole back-and-forth in the tabloids, the pictures of Oksana's battered face released, the authenticity of those pictured questioned, etc. etc. It was all for nothing! The plea allows Mel to maintain his innocence, while not exactly pleading "innocence." Now Mel will be forced to do 16 hours of community service for a group called "Mending Kids," and must stay away from Oksana, which he has to do anyway. So, we put an unhinged and violent man in contact with kids for 16 hours? Nice punishment. Meanwhile, Oksana's lawsuit against Mel continues unabated. [TMZ]
