Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. Katherine Heigl starred opposite Seth Rogen in Judd Apatow's 2007 hit
Knocked Up, which went on to earn more than $200 million worldwide and was dubbed "an instant classic" by
The New York Times. Despite the film's warm reception, which boosted Heigl to a heightened Hollywood status, the former
Grey's Anatomy star trashed the film. "It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys," Heigl complained to
Vanity Fair. "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." Her co-star Seth Rogen took offense and fired back, telling the
New York Daily News, "I hear there's a scene [in
The Ugly Truth] where she's wearing… underwear… with a vibrator in it, so I'd have to see if that was uplifting for women."
