Katherine Heigl: The GQ Interview

by at . Comments

The beautiful Katherine Heigl recently sat down for a Q&A and photo shoot with GQ Magazine. Here's her take on Grey's Anatomy, Steven Seagal, Dick Cheney and more - along with some neat photos.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Katherine Heigl: The GQ InterviewGQ: How are things on the Grey's Anatomy set today? Everyone behaving themselves? Any fistfights or wrestling matches?
Katherine Heigl: [laughs] So far so good for 2007.

GQ: When you guys talk about medical things on the air, do you know what you're talking about?
Katherine Heigl: I have no idea what I'm talking about. There are other actors on the set who are more fascinated with medicine, but I'm not one of those people. I admire doctors, but I'm an actor.

GQ: Patrick Dempsey's hair â€" as amazing in real life as it looks on TV?
Katherine Heigl: Yes. Sometimes he comes to work with one of those, like, beanie caps on, and when he takes it off, it's not as McDreamy as the rest of the world sees it, but he's got a great head of hair.

GQ: Have you ever run your hand through it?
Katherine Heigl: Once. On the pilot, actually. My mother was visiting the set, and we were just chatting with him. And I just looked up at him, and I was like, you know, "Can I just touch it?"

GQ: So it's real?
Katherine Heigl: It's real.

GQ: Your fiancé, Josh Kelley, is a musician. Is it true you met on the set of one of his videos?
Katherine Heigl: I was the chick in his music video.

GQ: That's how the guy from Whitesnake met his wife! So what's Josh's groupie situation like?
Katherine Heigl: You know, I don't ask. The only policy I have is that there can be no girls on the bus. I mean, it's fine if they're other band members' wives or serious girlfriends. But if they're not dating anybody and they're just bringing random chicks on the bus, I'm not cool with it.

GQ: Have any of his fellow bandmates complained about the "no girls on the bus" policy to you?
Katherine Heigl: Not yet, but I'm sure they do behind my back. [laughs]

GQ: You know, despite your growing fame, you don't seem to be one of these people who's under siege by the paparazzi. We don't see photos of you exiting automobiles in front of nightclubs in compromising positionsâ€"
Katherine Heigl: Well, my mother always told me to wear clean underwear, so you won't see that happening with me anytime soon.

GQ: I have to ask you about Under Siege 2, which you starred in when you were 16 years old. Do you have any good Steven Seagal stories?
Katherine Heigl: He was a very interesting man. He was going through a divorce, and he was… I was so young and naive, I had no concept of people like that. And he was so Hollywood, like auditioning women for the part of the girl who lies on the beach topless â€" a line around the trailer of women who would just go in there and show him their tits.

GQ: That's the best Steven Seagal story I think I've ever heard. Meanwhile, you're also in Knocked Up, the new movie from [The 40 Year-Old Virgin director] Judd Apatowâ€"it's about a man who has a one-night stand and impregnates the girl. You're the girl. Did you have to wear one of those baby-belly harnesses?
Katherine Heigl: Oh God, forever. Some days it would only be the three-month belly, and some days it was the nine-month belly. I smoke, so I'd be, like, standing outside smoking with my nine-month belly. And people would just give me these looks.

GQ: You were like, [inhales] "What's it to you?"
Katherine Heigl: Like, "None of your business. Whatever."

GQ: Okay, speed round. If you had to attend a professional sporting event, what would it be?
Katherine Heigl: NASCAR.

GQ: Would you kiss Dick Cheney on the lips for a million dollars to your favorite charity?
Katherine Heigl: Yeah.

GQ: Would you do it for $10,000 to your favorite charity?
Katherine Heigl: I mean, how long is the kiss?

GQ: Long enough that he remembers it.
Katherine Heigl: But no tongue, right?

GQ: No.
Katherine Heigl: Okay, yeah, $10,000 is fine.

GQ: What about $500?
Katherine Heigl: [pause] No.

Katherine Heigl is my favourite actress but she's so stupid, I can't believe she smokes, I used to really admire her and I still do but not as much. She's so beautiful and talented and she's completely wrecking her life!

Oy! OK, Katherine Heigl does smoke in real life. It's been documented many times; just do a Google search. For those who say she is beautiful now - and she is - she will start to lose those looks in about 10 years. Just research those actresses that smoke and you will see a considerable difference between the way they look now and how they looked when they first arrived "on the scene". It's not pretty. If she wants to lose those looks of hers then that's her business. There will be another person to replace her in a few years anyway. So enjoy her now while you can because she won't be around later; especially if she can't kick that deadly addiction of hers.

I'm so sick of her. In a recent interview, she stated she hates hollywood people who complain. Wasn't she just in the public complaining about how she is underpaid and underappreciated? Give me a break. She already makes more than most of us will see in a lifetime.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
