Yesterday we reported that hating Katherine Heigl is somewhat of a trend these days. Seth Rogen was on Howard Stern’s radio show yesterday, and reminded us all that he was the inventor of Heigl hatred, further attacking her for her latest film.
The feud started last year when Heigl spoke out about her unhappiness filming Knocked Up, the film directed by Judd Apatow and starring Rogen. She told Vanity Fair in an interview-
“[The movie is] a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days. I’m playing such a bitch; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you’re portraying women? Ninety-eight percent of the time it was an amazing experience, but it was hard for me to love the movie.”
Naturally Seth Rogen couldn’t keep his mouth shut (he is somewhat of a Megan Fox in that area). He shot back quickly and defended the film, blaming Heigl for any discomfort she felt on set. And the feud seemed settled.
But then Heigl went and made The Ugly Truth. A film about an uptight, humorless shrew who learns how to snag a man by using the secrets told to her by fun-loving male colleague, played by Gerard Butler.
Rogen and Apatow, doing press for Funny People on Howard Stern, called Heigl out on the hypocrisy of starring the equally sexist The Ugly Truth. Rogen jokingly says of the movie, “That looks like it really puts women on a pedestal in a beautiful way.”
Apatow was a little more gracious, saying he would have to see the movie before he made any judgments.
Rogen recognized that they were not the sole target of her criticism, “I gotta say it’s not like we’re the only people she said some bats**t crazy things about…that’s kind of her bag now.”
