Hollywood Execs Say Katherine Heigl Is ‘difficult’ And ‘not Worth’ Working With: Biggest Celebrity Brat?

Katherine Heigl

The movie opens in the U.S. on December 25. REUTERS/Mario Anzuoni (UNITED STATES)Reuters Next Slide Previous Slide Katherine Heigl has never thought of herself as America’s sweetheart. And apparently, neither has anyone else. According to an expose in The Hollywood Reporter, a handful of industry insiders all agree that the “Knocked Up” star is often too “difficult” to work with and ultimately, “not worth it.” That’s gotta hurt. SODAHEAD SLIDESHOW: The biggest celebrity brats of all time One insider elaborates on Heigl’s alleged diva demands: “She can cost you time every single day of shooting… Wardrobe issues, not getting out of the trailer, questioning the script every single day. Even getting her deal closed at Warners was hard. She hit that point of ‘no.'” The article even makes the case that Heigl’s difficulty has forced her off of Hollywood’s “A list” — making roughly $12 million on a given movie — and back onto the small screen. But is the former “Grey’s Anatomy” actress the biggest celebrity brat you can think of? Surely, there’s tons of divas in the industry. Kristen Stewart isn’t exactly the sweet girl-next-door.

And the winners of the Celebrity Spectacle Wearer of the Year awards are …

If Lost in Showbiz had to plump for a favourite attendee, it would probably be singer Diana Vickers, who appears to have found the title of the event slightly opaque, and posed up for the cameras without her glasses. According to reports, this galaxy ofsublebrities “gathered to raise awareness and money for anti-bullying charity Kidscape “. And yet, did they? Is that what they truly gathered for? Lost in Showbiz has established from Specsavers that the night raised 35,000 for Kidscape. But it does set one wondering how much money could have been given to the charity had Specsavers just handed over, direct to the charity, the cost of a glittering award ceremony at the Royal Opera House. Indeed, if you wish to swell the notional pile of cash Kidscape won’t be getting from this eyeglassed retinue of caring stars, why not add in the cost of all those stylists, red carpet outfits, limos Somewhat inevitably, Specsavers decline to elaborate on the precise cost of throwing an awards ceremony of this size, but it seems reasonable to conclude that if everyone involved offered to simply stay in and watch telly and donate what they would have spent on everything from venue hire to a new frock, then Kidscape would be looking at the thick end of arather bigger donation. As for what convention demands that we style the coveted awards, I am told there was joy for Dame Edna and the daughter of Simon and Yasmin Le Bon, while a former Britain’s Got Talent finalist won the award for Best Newcomer. Newcomer to spectacles orto fame? “To the world of celebrity,” confirms the Specsavers PR. The worldof ophthalmic enhancement hadbeen blessed with him for longer, it turns out. Still, that’s Celebrity Spectacle Wearer of the Year done for another 12months and I think I speak for all those fascinated by the business of glasses-wearing to say that the production has left us clamouring for more. In the meantime, the question iswhere this modern curiosity fits intothe canon of other pointless awardceremonies. After all, it was only the other week that Taylor Swift was gushing from the stage at the 41st Annual Fragrance Foundation awards . And while you might think showbiz perfumery isn’t that unworthy of garlanding, it’s that “41st” in the title that really gives a sense of the scale of the task humanity faces.
