Patrick Wilson, who co-stars with Katherine Heigl in the rom-com North Of Hell, is coming to her defense after a scathing piece stated that she is branded as “difficult” in Hollywood.
Katherine Heigl (Knocked Up, One For The Money, The Ugly Truth) has been around the movie and television scene for many years and is a favorite to cast in romantic comedies, if her resume is anything to go by.
In a recent piece on The Hollywood Reporter some insiders’ comments about the blonde beauty were less than kind.
The last time Heigl was seen on TV was on Grey’s Anatomy, and after she departed, less than graciously, she hasn’t been too busy making movies.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Heigl has a reputation for being “difficult” and has made few friends with her over-the-top demands and some studios won’t even consider casting her.
Patrick Wilson doesn’t agree. He says it’s all a bunch of nothing.
“Now listen, this article that came out was because — and you know how the press works — she sold a show last week to NBC. Well great!” Wilson told the Huffington Post. “So what do people do? Hey, let’s rip her down a few days later. So they write this article about Grey’s Anatomy. We’re still talking about when she left Grey’s Anatomy how many years ago? We all have reputations, whether they’re true or not.”
Wilson calls Heigl, “super funny” and “super gracious” denying the accusations in The Hollywood Reporter, which alleges she has temper tantrums, work cancellations, and ridiculous demands.
The actor says that while working with Katherine Heigl he saw the complete opposite.
“She showed up, worked her tail off, super funny, super gracious, great to the cast, great to the crew, and was a total pro.”
Wislon adds he would work with her again “in a heartbeat.”
“So I have to defend her because she couldn’t have been a better experience.” Patrick Willson concludes his case against the Katherine Heigl attack. The actress has not commented as of yet.
