It’s no secret that Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen don’t really get along. The pair had a very public feud after Knocked Up was released. Recently, Rogen finally addressed the actress’ comments and he seemed pretty okay with it, however annoying they may have been.
It all started in 2008 when Heigl criticized Rogen and Judd Apatow in a Vanity Fair interview. She said the film “paints the women as shrews,” but the men look “lovable.” She also admitted that she didn’t like the film. “It was hard for me to love the movie,” she said.
In a 2009 Howard Stern interview, Rogen fired back and commented on how women were portrayed in Heigl’s film The Ugly Truth. “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,” he said.
Shots were fired, but recently, Rogen went on Watch What Happens Live and admitted he’s pretty much moved past it.
“I was never that mad, honestly, and I assumed she didn’t want to work with us anymore, honestly, because she seemed to not like the result of the work we did together.”
“She did not seem entirely pleased with it afterward,” he continued. “I think that was the root of everything. But honestly it was so long ago, and I have damaged my brain so badly in the last few years, I have a hard time even recalling what it was about or even who was supposed to be mad at who, and I have no bad feelings towards her at all, honestly.”
Katherine Heigl finally spoke out about the squabble too. She admitted that he handled her comments pretty well.
“I think that he’s handled that so beautifully, and I just feel nothing but love and respect,” she said.
“I just wish him so much goodness — and I felt that from him, too,” she continued.
Heigl, when will you just learn to keep your mouth shut? Isn’t your reputation bad enough? Thank the Hollywood Gods that Rogen could “handle” your nasty comments.
According to Rogen, the actress still hasn’t apologized. Based on Heigl’s reputation, it’s doubtful that she ever will.
“When I apologize to people, generally I don’t take a public forum to do it,” he said. Ouch.
Do you think Heigl should still apologize to Rogen? It looks like the pair are ready to bury the hatchet.
