Smile, Adam Sandler - the joke's on you! Or maybe the joke's on us, the collective moviegoing audience? Sandler leads Forbes' 2013 list of the most overpaid Hollywood actors, with "Jack & Jill" and "That's My Boy" as cases in point, illustrating the kind of product that served up only a $3.40 return on every star-salary dollar spent. ("Grown Ups 2" missed the cutoff.) Forbes assembles the top 10 list using data from Box Office Mojo combined with salary data found in its own annual Celebrity 100 list, which cuts off at June 2013.

Katherine Heigl is suing New York drugstore chain Duane Reade to the tune of $6 million -- all over a tweet she claims misappropriated her image for commercial purposes without her consent.  Last month, the company tweeted out a link to a story with  a paparazzi photo of the actress carrying two bags branded with its logo.  "Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KatieHeigl can't resist shopping #NYC's favorite drugstore," read the message. The image was also posted on the pharmacy's Facebook page, according to CNN . The allegedly offending tweet is gone from the @DuaneReade timeline, but it did get retweeted . To back up her case for monetary damages, the "Grey's Anatomy" and "27 Dresses" star listed her onscreen accomplishments in the filing and, in what TMZ noted was a bit of overkill in the "look at how famous I am" department, included her number of Twitter followers and, hilariously, the number of hits that result from Googling "Katherine Heigl.

"Grey's Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo talked to the New York Post last week on the occasion of the ABC medical drama's 200th episode, which will air Thursday, and gave some very frank comments about the two of the show's highest-profile cast departures, Katherine Heigl and Isaiah Washington. Heigl's departure from the show in 2010 came after several tumultuous seasons, including withdrawing her name from Emmy consideration in 2008 after she found the material she was being given lacking.

Winter is coming to Oakton, the fictional city circa 1959 at the center of the new 3-D animated film "The Nut Job. " Unfortunately, the critters who occupy Liberty Park haven't been able to store enough food to survive the season. That's of no concern to the aptly named Surly (Will Arnett), a purplish squirrel who looks out for only himself. When Surly discovers a stash of snacks in a closed nut shop, he makes a deal with peacekeeper Andie (Katherine Heigl) to share the loot with the rest of the park.

A mercenary pall hangs over the criminally uninspired "One for the Money. " Tough economic times force Stephanie Plum, the main character, to take a potentially lucrative assignment as a bounty hunter. Fair enough. Except that the filmmakers have left the creative spark out of the equation. The Katherine Heigl vehicle is an ungainly mix of flat-footed gumshoeing and strained attempts at hilarity, all delivered with an unconvincing Joizy vibe. As in most Hollywood romantic comedies of recent vintage, the romance and laughs in "Money" are, respectively, wan and nonexistent.

"Oh, man, I'm tired," Katherine Heigl said. She laughed. It was 9 a.m. on a recent Saturday morning and Heigl was wearing a full-length red Oscar De La Renta dress, black shawl over the shoulders. Her hair was blown out, face fully made up. This week very much promised to be busy -- and all about her. She was getting married in a few days to singer Josh Kelley -- a destination wedding on her property in Utah. She was still deflecting comments she made in the January issue of Vanity Fair.

IT boggles the mind that Giacomo Knox feels the need to defend Isaiah Washington as "truly outspoken" as opposed to Katherine Heigl's defense of T.R. Knight [Letters, Jan. 13]. I wonder if Knox would feel the same way if Heigl or Knight had used the N-word to describe Washington, because the F-word is equally offensive. Washington was not "blindsided by a reporter" as Knox implies. Instead he felt that an awards celebration was the appropriate place to defend himself against multiple witnesses.

RE "Pretty Outspoken" [Jan. 6]: Let me get this straight. Isaiah Washington defends himself at the Golden Globes after being blindsided by a reporter, and he's called all sorts of names except outspoken. In fact, he loses his job and is relegated to the abysmal "Bionic Woman." Katherine Heigl -- whose accomplishments include modeling, being a big-breasted blond, a couple of doe-eyed crying scenes on "Grey's Anatomy" masquerading as real acting -- feels the need to defend a grown man (T.R.

Seaweed can shrink your waistline. Grow your hair. Bring down your blood pressure along with your blood sugar. Build up the strength of your bones and your brain. Make your joints stop aching and your bowels get moving. Give cancer short shrift, and give cellulite and wrinkles the old heave-ho. That is, if you believe the hype - only some of which is backed up by reliable evidence. The data are strongest that seaweed can reduce inflammation, premenstrual syndrome symptoms and even the growth of tumors (in animals)

" Yes they have adopted a baby," a rep for Heigl confirmed to several outlets. "No further details [are available] at this time.”   Heigl and Kelley are mom and dad to adorable 3-year-old girl Naleigh, and considering what Katherine told us last year, the family will be thrilled for the company. "I don't actually have a ton of friends with kids, it's really weird.
