But is the Marie Claire interview The Ugly Truth or an attempt at rebuilding a bad reputation?

Katherine Heigl's returning to primetime television this fall with NBC's political drama State of Affairs.


According to James Hibberd's "Katherine Heigl drama plus 2 more get NBC series orders", the Entertainment Weekly article confirms the the plot follows suit with a growing number of primetime NBC pilots about political and national safety.


Heigl plays Charleston Tucker in the NBC drama. Tucker is a top CIA analyst who briefs the president (Alfre Woodard) on political intrigue and warfare. Of course, one difference is the president's a woman, which hasn't really been done since ABC's Commander in Chief starring Geena Davis in 2005-2006.

The storyline between the women on State of Affairs centers around Tucker's engagement to the president's son "before a tragic terrorist attack took his life." Sounds like a bond to deepen the women's trust in one another. And no fridge involved!

Grief is a bear to battle and sometimes Charlie takes too many risks, but it's the high-stakes games of political intrigue. And she never slacks on one of the most important jobs in the president's advisory circle.


The 27 Dresses star hasn't been on a hit television show since finally leaving Grey's Anatomy in 2010. While rumors circulated she wanted to reappear on the ABC drama, nothing every came of the media hints. For years the gossip mill has disparaged the 35-year-old actress--as far back as Roswell.

The One for the Money star recently did an interview for Marie Claire's August issue and the Belfast Telegraph noted the complaints. In "Heigl: I made too many romcoms" the paper focuses on the way she sees the industry.

"I stopped challenging myself. It became a bit by rote and, as a creative person, that can wear you down." The statement doesn't really set apart any of her earlier criticizes, and her thinking of herself as a victim doesn't really help a rebuild cause.


"The thing that was my best friend for a long time suddenly turned on me. And I didn't expect it. I was taken by surprise and angry at it for betraying me." And if the industry is so hard why is she a "Hollywood animal" looking "to get into the writer's room." 

So if the North of Hell star's looking to score points in the industry, why is she complaining about the success the romantic comedies she supposedly loved so much?

The Hollywood Reporter's Kim Masters wrote a piece in September all about Heigl's professional reputation. "From 'Knocked Up' to Nyquil Ads, Can TV Save Katherine Heigl's Career?" is filled with quotes, good and bad, about working with the actress.

In 2008, the actress refused to submit her work for a primetime Emmy in order "to maintain the integrity of the academy organization" since Grey's wasn't producing quality material.


Shonda Rhimes finally admitted her real feelings during an interview with Oprah in 2012. "On some level, I was not surprised. When people show you who they are, believe them." However in 2007, she gladly accepted the Emmy for the same role of Izzie Stevens. And the show-and-tell had been going around a lot.

While Greg Berlanti (Arrow, Brothers & Sisters) and Denise Di Novi hold her in high regard after working on 2010's Life as We Know, insiders in the industry tell a different tale.

Heigl and her mother Nancy fostered a negative relationship by complaining about wardrobe, food, and script almost daily on Hollywood sets. Masters quotes a top executive at a studio, stating, "I think she's doing the perfect thing -- going back to television."

A source notes "even getting her deal closed at Warners was hard. She hit that point of 'no.' "


 

Not exactly leading lady behavior even though 2009's The Ugly Truth with Gerard Butler pulled in $200 million worldwide. Another source says the only way for Heigl to really get in Hollywood's good graces again is "to have good things to report back. And it's not an overnight thing." 

If Katherine Heigl wants to rebuild, perhaps not letting criticisms slip out would be a wise decision for the Knocked Up star.
