Katherin Heigl Says She felt Cheated by Her Career

Katherine Heigl was slated to be the next big movie star, thanks to comedies like 27 Dresses and Knocked Up. And then…she opened her mouth. Heiglwasn't afraid to discuss taboo topics like sexism in Hollywood, and she openly criticized the writing she was given on ABC's Grey's Anatomy

Besides her television stint, Katherine continued to work in film, starring in and executive producing 2009'sThe Ugly Truth (opposite Gerard Butler) and 2010's Life As We Know It (opposite Josh Duhamel), among others. At the same time, many critics picked the actress' projects (and relative interviews) apart like vultures.

"The thing that was my best friend for a long time suddenly turned on me," Heigl says of acting in Marie Claire UK's August issue. "And I didn't expect it. I was taken by surprise and angry at it for betraying me."

Heigl accepts partial blame, saying she did too many romantic comedies and neglected serious roles.

"I had an amazing time," says Heigl, 35, who's an Emmy Award winner and married mother of two. "I love romantic comedies. But maybe I hit it a little too hard. I couldn't say no. I stopped challenging myself. It became a bit by rote and, as a creative person, that can wear you down. That was part of why I took that time off, to ask myself, 'What do I want? What am I looking for?' and shut down all the noise."

At one point, Heigl came to close to walking away from Hollywood for good.

"Oh yeah, I had a moment where, I don't know, I was thinking I'd maybe open a knitting store, get my money out of retirement accounts and live off that, live off the land," the Utah-based actress tells the magazine. "I had my moment where it all seemed so complicated and all I wanted to do was simplify."
