Katherine Heigl added to her spoiled brat legacy this week when she went on Letterman and complained about a 17-hour work day on “Greys Anatomy”. Keep in mind that just means she was there for 17 hours. She wasn’t building sets or writing the script. Mostly she was sitting in her fabulous trailer on her extra-fancy couch. Other people were working for 17 hours, and she was in the vicinity, so Katherine would like credit for that as well. By that standard, I can bench press over a million pounds. There’s my 225, plus whatever it is the other 300 people are currently lifting. I’m practically the Hulk. Anyway, Katherine said…
“Our first day back was Wednesday and it was — I’m going to keep saying this because I hope it embarrasses them — a seventeen-hour day, which I think is cruel and mean.”
Wow, that sucks! Why the hell would they do such a thing? New York Magazine has one idea why…
What she neglected to add was this: This “cruel” shooting schedule was only to accommodate HER and her needs. The producers graciously shuffled things around so she could go off and do promotion for her new film. Also, with union rules, the producers had to pay a ton of overtime and penalties to make this happen. The thanks they get is Katherine Heigl going on national television hoping to embarrass them.
At this point the producers would probably prefer it if Katherine knocked on the door and then threw a bunch of snakes on them as opposed to her asking for any more “favors”.
(oh, and sorry for the delay today. i’ll spare you the details, but suffice to say those gangs wont be selling any more drugs to kids around here)
