Heigl exposes 'Anatomy'

July 22, 2009|Wire And Staff Reports

"Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl, who is in the romantic comedy "The Ugly Truth," is out to expose the "ugly truth" behind the long hours filming the ABC drama. Appearing on "Late Show With David Letterman" on Monday night, Heigl complained about her first day back: "It was -- I'm going to keep saying this because I hope it embarrasses them -- a 17-hour day, which I think is cruel and mean."

Network officials declined to comment on Tuesday, but one insider said the production needed to squeeze in several scenes involving Heigl due to her promotional commitments for the film. "They were trying their best to accommodate her, since they only had her for one day," said the source, who asked not to be identified because of the source's proximity to the show.

On "Letterman," Heigl also said the first day back was a "little weird" because friend T.R. Knight had left the show.
