Katherine Heigl's roles

Film, television, literature, and theater have long relied on stereotypes. And so does Katherine Heigl, who continually is cast as the gorge but constipated pill of a control freak.

Whether she’s wearing scrubs or her 27th bridesmaid’s mess, The Ugly Truth is that she’s still a drag on my movie ticket. For the love of all that is good and holy, get this girl a three-dimensional role where she’s not sleeping with her Blackberry and jumbo bottle of Purell, with only a trainwreck of a man-baby possessing the ability to thaw her bland/blond sang-froid.

Thank you! I'm just mildly giddy over your choice of punching the Heigl characters in the face. I did mention her when you asked for suggestions. Her characters will suffice.

It's all thanks to your suggestion! She's been bugging for a long time but she wasn't on my list.

I confess, as a male, that she is good enough to do better roles. But she falls into these asinine female cliches.

You would hope at some point she'll have enough $ so she can get a decent gig.

I cannot stand her but I did like 27 dresses. They should have killed her in Grey's!

My least favorite Katherine Heigl moment: when she slept with the ghost of her dead boyfriend on Grey's. Coincidentally, that moment coincided with me ending my affair with the show altogether...hmmm.

My mom used to Lo-ove Katherine Heigl on Gray's Anatomy. Then she started watching her movies and noticed a theme. At some point in every movie Heigl's character uses the word "cock". Has anyone else noticed this? EVERY movie. It's true. I think she has an evil manager who either wants her to fail or likes to hear her say this word. Now my mom won't even read about her in People Magazine she is so disgusted.
