Blind Item #6

This former A list mostly television actress turned B- list mostly movie actress turned back to television because no one likes anything she does knows her latest movie project is a loser so pleaded poverty to the indie producers when they asked her to pony up some money to finish it.

Heigle, she had a TV movie slated for 2014.

Olivia Black said...

Heigel seconded

kate heigl (and this blind is totally credible)

Derek Harvey said...

Heigel has never returned to tv

katydid said...

Yes I read this weekend about Heigel's new film trying to get $150,000 to finish the film on a kickstarter like website. She really screwed the pooch!

Or pissed off Apatow, that's probably a more accurate description of why her career is in the shitter.

Katherine Hiegl and Miranda Kerr should go into business together

Derek Harvey said...

I guess Shannen Doherty---she has a few indie films on the go. One including a bio-pic with James Franco directing about Charles Bukowski- which sounds interesting! Can't quite picture Franco and Doherty together...

Anna Belle said...

Hiegl shot off her mouth...rather surprising becuase yes she was a child actor but not a child star...usually if they've been in the biz awhile they get how the system works & know better than to shot themselves in the foot...it's the child/teen stars that end up screwing themselves when they get of age

Derek Harvey said...

um---hello--what show has Heigel returned to?

Seven of Eleven said...

@katy, I like your theory. I wondered why they didn't bring back the Knocked Up characters in This Is 40 (except for the one photo in the hallway) and guessed it was because she was such a pain to work with, and didn't she say something snotty about the film? Way to burn your bridges, Izzy Stevens.

Yes her pilot got picked up. Crap show about ear to president.

@Derek Katherine Heigl's got a Scandal-ripoff show on NBC for the fall.

TanGyal said...

Heigl's got a flexible funding campaign on Indiegogo to finish the movie lmao...so even if she doesn't make the $150K goal, they still get the money minus 9%...

Derek Harvey said...

kk--my bad---someone should go update her IMDB page cause I aint doing it ; )

Cleodacat said...

@Derek, it's at the top next to the words (TV Movie) ;-)

Kimba said...

Heigl, not really a blind, it's storied around.

Enty,it's not a blind:it's in Variety

@Step Whaaaa?

Stepforded said...

@Seven - I preferred Leslie Mann in that sort of movie anyway ... actually, I can't think of any movie I have lied Hiegl in. The one she did with Ashton Kutcher - "Killers" - would've been so much better without her in it.

I liked that Judd Apatow cast his wife and daughter in 'This is 40' - cute family that they are.

sandybrook said...

Good afternoon Kristin! Hope you are having a good day wherever you are.

S said...

@katydid is right. I read the exact same thing.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Hey Sandybrook! It's President's Day! What could possibly go wrong? 'Muricah!

sandybrook said...

I dunno maybe the birthday cake and pizza and beers run out?

katydid said...

Seven, yes she called the movie sexist and said something about Apatow writing all his females as neurotic, I'm paraphrasing but it wasn't a smart move. Apatow has to be A+ list now right?

+1 on Leslie Mann, her scene in 40 year old Virgin cracks me up every time. She's cute, like able and funny.

Heigl

she is trying to finance a movie she is doing to finish it and is looking at independent sources.......

rikkitikkitavi said...

katherine higel and jonah hill should get together. their babies would be so fetching what with jonahs dashing good looks

Debra Messing

Bukowski film shouldn't have a money problem. Everyone wants to see it!

di butler said...

Yup, Katie Heigelberg has bombed everywhere. I actually like her acting, she needs a personality makeover

JoElla said...

@Di, I agree with you. I liked her movies.

Habibti said...

That nasty girl...Katherine Heigl. Lainey from Laineygossip confirmed it too. They were $150 000 short for finishing the movie and only received $8400 from donations. She is done in HoWood.
