Go ahead and mark this down as another reason Katherine Heigl sucks. The overly opinionated drama queen who once released a statement taking herself out of Emmy contention because she wasn’t given the material to work with on Grey’s Anatomy has pulled out of her upcoming film Adaline. The news comes just days after the producers announced Angela Lansbury had been cast to play opposite Heigl. Am I missing something here? Angela Lansbury is a beloved icon. How the hell does any self-respecting actress pass up a chance to work with her? Well, maybe it wasn’t exactly her choice.
According to Deadline, rumor has it Heigl was fired from the project, but since the story first leaked, both Heigl and the production company have denied she was given the boot. Apparently, she’s just excited about being a new mother. Was she not excited about that a week ago? Did someone just leave the baby on her doorstep over the weekend? Either she was fired, or she can’t be bothered to live up to her commitments. Regardless, I somehow like her even less now. If you want to be a mother, step away and be a mother. Don’t make commitments and then back out using motherhood as an excuse.
No word yet on who might replace Heigl, but something tells me there’s plenty of A-list actresses that wouldn’t mind working with Jessica Fletcher.
