This is mostly about the director's resume and qualifications, but it is still interesting news. :)
"Julie Anne Robinson comes with her next directorial venture through One for the Money movie so with that one to handle Julie Anne Robinson sure must be rather busy these days. Having successfully coming up with a number of well received theatrical features earlier as well it can be guaranteed for her fans that forthcoming motion picture will mark a dramatic shift in her movie making skills because upcoming flick seems to be dealing with an array of contrasting elements. Moreover a stellar cast which includes Katherine Heigl, Jason O’Mara and Daniel Sunjata among many others has been brought together for a single screen which means that this flick which is currently in post production level will probably deliver something exceptional and outstanding for sure.No matter how small this information is, it still gives me a little grin to think they are working on this movie, and we are going to have a plethora of "OFTM" news soon!!! Yay!!
One for the Money movie director British born Julie Anne Robinson is most known for her talents which had been shown in an array of dimensions in performing arts field. Thus she has experiences in theatre television and wide screen so makes her profile to be enhanced with finesse and poise. And it was mainly through television she had got much recognition and he debut venture also had been a small screen venture. Thus she had been one of the popular and well known directors in British television. She had earned both BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations BBC miniseries Blackpool of which she had directed the first half. And her first feature length venture had been romantic drama The Last Song which had helped her to attract a number of fans for her works.
Thus currently busy with One for the Money movie premise of it surely assures of a most entertaining motion picture which will be unlike any other movie that audience have ever seen. Forthcoming movie will also be the theatrical adaptation to best selling novel series by Janet Evanovich and it has been noted that forthcoming venture will mark the beginning of a movie franchise as well. Protagonist will Stephanie Plum who lands on a job as a bounty hunter only to be assigned the first job of tracking down a runaway local cop who turns out to be someone from her romantic past. Thus comedy crime and thriller factors will be brought out in a great way"
I was over at IMDB, and I came across a post that Pattrose had mentioned reading over there talking about the sequels. I don't know if there is any truth to this info, but I would sure be disappointed if they started all over and recast for the next movie.
I don't want to fuel any rumors, so if anyone does have any info on if this is true or not, please feel free to inform us differently, but I thought this was worth a discussion on whether you think this would be a good idea or not.
I'm just going to give my opinion up front here. I would hate it if they changed up the characters now for the sequel. It would be so distracting to me to see different actors as the main characters, especially Stephanie. I think KH will do an excellent job, and I am really hoping this info is a fabrication.
Okay, here it is folks! Feel free to discuss and throw in you input!
"One for the Money
Director: Julie Anne Robinson
Stars: Katherine Heigl, Jason O'Mara, Daniel Sunjata (Full Cast)
The Plot: Unemployed and newly-divorced Stephanie Plum (Heigl) lands a job at her cousin's bail-bond business, where her first assignment puts her on the trail of a wanted local cop from her romantic past.
THE BUZZ: And for her next assignment, Stephanie Plum works to reveal exactly what happened to end the public's love affair with Katherine Heigl. Refitted for someone such as Rachel McAdams or Emma Stone, and the first novel in the popular series from writer Janet Evanovich could've marked the beginning of a movie franchise. That said, the budget has to be low here (most everyone involved are seasoned TV players, including director Julie Anne Robinson), so a scrappy box-office showing might greenlight Two for the Dough ..."
So what do you think? Thanks, Patt, for the info!

More 'One for the Money' news!! Yay!! Hopefully this is a start of an upward trend!! John Leguizamo was recently interviewed about his recent projects, and 'One for the Money' was mentioned. It is another small mention, but still interesting.
"And what about One for the Money?
That’s with Katherine Heigl. It was a lot of fun working with her. She’s very serious about her acting which is great, but she’s still funny. The movie is based on these big novels, One for the Money, Two for the Dough—they go up to like eleven and this is her first. Katherine’s character is a New Jersey bounty hunter. That we wrapped a long time ago so it should be coming out in the summer of 2011."

Crossing my fingers we have more info coming up shortly!!!

‘“Afraid you might lose control in the hall and beg me to come in and make love to you?” Joe Morelli, High Five(*swoon*) And this, ladies, is why I cannot decide between these 2 delicious men! Rangelli sandwich anyone? (*fanning myself*)

Another book...just on a side note....that I would recommend as an excellent read and has just finished wrapping the movie adaptation is "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.
Not a LOL kind of book by any means, but I read the whole book in like 2 days!! It is more of a serious, suspenseful page turner, but I laughed so hard at the end of the book I almost peed my pants!! ;O
Anyhoo...Any funny book suggestions would be awesome!! Thanks in advance, and thanks for the great inquiry, Redzsm!
Feel free to copy and use for your enjoyment! I'm certainly going to have to force myself to look at the uber sexy Jason O'Mara every morning when I turn on my computer (*sigh*) LOL Poor me huh? Tee-hee! Like I've said before....he's better than coffee for a nice pick me up in the morning!

You know when you come away from a movie, and it just affects you in a certain profound way? Well, that is what this movie did to me! I loved this movie!!! It blew me away!! Katherine Heigl was brilliant in it. Her costars, Josh Duhamel and Josh Lucas were equally brilliant. The story was exceptionally written. It made me laugh, cry, and really get involved in the lives of these characters. I dragged my husband kicking and screaming to this movie, and he walked away saying he would see it again and that it was pretty good!! Praise indeed coming from a guy who would rather poke himself in the eye with a sharp stick than go and watch a chick flick! There really aren’t a lot of movies today that I walk away from that I really love, but this one I absolutely loved!
In fact, I might play a little hookie from work and go see it again tomorrow! Really people, and it is not just because I really like KH, this movie was incredibly good!!!! She definitely earned her acting chops in this one!! She made me laugh, cry, and just wholeheartedly fall in love with her character! Duhamel was amazing as well. You really got a keen sense of what these poor people were going through! I felt soooooooo bad for Josh Lucas in the end too! Those dreamy blue eyes are heavenly!!! I’ll gladly take ya, Josh!! Shhhhhhh…just don’t tell my husband! ;)
Bottom line……This movie is a MUST SEE!!! Don't forget your tissues...for the tears.... and to clean up after yourself once you get done drooling over the man candy!!
‘Speaking with Extra about her new dark brown hair, Katherine confessed that the change "was little shocking at first." She added, "There's always that moment where you're like 'Oh no! No one's gonna know who I am anymore!'"
The reason for the change? Her upcoming role in the film adaptation of Janet Evanovich's novel "One For The Money", where she will portray New Jersey lingerie saleswoman turned bounty hunter Stephanie Plum.
"I don't know how to do the Jersey accent yet, but I will practice," Heigl said. "I downloaded all of the 'Jersey Shore' because I thought that could help me."’
To view the video, click on the link below:
Also, Patt and Iheartjason, this article answers your questions on whether Katherine will be doing a Jersey accent. ;)
Have I said lately that I am sooooo excited for this movie to come out?? No??? Well...I AM!!!!! :) :)
'A hot topic of conversation at the ShoWest Convention Awards yesterday was Katherine's recent switch to dark brown hair and she revealed to E!'s Marc Malkin that the change was driven by a new movie role.I think she gets how important this role is to all the Stephanie Plum fans out there. Here's crossing my fingers that she delivers July 8, 2011. I have a good feeling she will! What are your thoughts?
Katherine will star in the movie adaptation of novelist Janet Evanovich's book "One For The Money" about a young, lingerie saleswoman turned bounty hunter called Stephanie Plum and it is this part that inspired her to make the change. Chatting backstage before collecting the award for Female Star Of The Year she told the reporter:
"She's a very specific kind of girl, and I didn't want to disappoint the fans because I know what it's like when your favorite book gets made into a movie and it's not what you had hoped," Heigl told me backstage before her dress disaster. "I wanted to go out there and show the fans I'm committed to Stephanie."
She's so committed that she actually made the hair switcheroo without even having a start date for filming. "I've been dying to do it anyway," Heigl said. "I love it. It's a nice change. I've just been so 'the blonde' for so long that it's nice to shake things up."'
‘It was recently announced that Katherine is set to star as Stephanie Plum in a new Columbia Pictures and Lakeshore Entertainment production called "One for the Money" based on the novels by author Janet Evanovich.
The author spoke with Variety in article about novelists and Hollywood, sharing some of her thoughts about the adaptation and the time taken for the movie to reach the production stage:
Janet Evanovich never thought she'd have to wait this long to see "One for the Money" developed into a movie. She sold it to TriStar for $1 million in 1994, before it hit stores. Over the years, Jennifer Lopez and Reese Witherspoon have been bandied about as potential stars for the adaptation, which producer Wendy Finerman has been shepherding from the start.
"It seems like a no brainer -- there have been all these shows about bounty hunters -- but my poor little project just has never gotten off the ground," Evanovich says. "I would like to see it happen very badly. In the beginning if it had been made, it would have really benefitted my sales. At this point, it would be the reverse. I have a readership of five to six million."
As far as Evanovich is concerned, there's no downside to a movie adaptation: "My feeling has always been, if the movie sucks, people are the going to say the book's better, and if the movie's good, more people are going to read the book."
At first, Evanovich admits, she couldn't understand why she wasn't asked to write the adaptation. Now that she knows more about the development process she's happy to have others undertake the screenwriting, which is far more collaborative than fiction writing. The project has already had more than seven writers take a pass at it.
Adapting "One for the Money" at this stage in the franchise has gotten trickier, she notes, due to the passage of time and evolution of the character. "It's kind of a double-edged sword. It would have been better to come out in the beginning," Evanovich says. "On the other hand, there's a built-in audience."’
Anyway, I’ve been told to dig a little farther back when the Stephanie Plum news barely broke, and I would probably find some news I haven’t seen. They were right!! I’ve actually seen this video before. In fact I saw this when Reese Witherspoon still had the rights to this movie.
According to Kheigl.com, this is what they had to say about this article.
'It was recently announced that Katherine is set to star as Stephanie Plum in a new Columbia Pictures and Lakeshore Entertainment production called "One for the Money".To watch the interview in full and to find out what else Janet had to say, check out the video clip below. Poor Janet looks tired.
The film is based on the first of Janet Evanovich's series of best selling novels about an unemployed lingerie buyer who becomes a bounty hunter to make ends meet.
Last year, Evanovich gave an interview where she hoped that the movie would soon be made and was excited at the possibility of Katherine's involvement:
"I would love to see the movie. Tristar (Columbia) owns the movie rights and they just can't seem to...I don't know...get a product that they like.
However, they have just recently hired two screenwriters to do a screenplay that might feature Katherine Heigl! She would be fantastic. I am a huge Katherine Heigl fan!"'
"Normally Stephanie goes for the super junkie birthday cake with the big gloppy flowers, but the Tasty Pastry made this special for her...a Boston Cream cake! That's yellow cake with bavarian custard in the middle and chocolate icing on top." ~ Janet Evanovich
So, HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEPHANIE
Thursday, October 7, 2010
So, I've had a lot of time on my hands, as you all know, and I was skimming over the 'OFTM' book just for the hell of it. I came across a scene that raised an interesting question, I thought...One that should be blogged about no less. ;)
I've blogged about which cars should be in the movie, but I really haven't blogged solely about which scenes must be in ‘OFTM’ for me to be a happy girl. So here they are...My top 10, and they aren't in any particular order!
*Spoiler Alert!* Detailed scenes from the book below.
1) Joe Catches Stephanie with his Jeep ~ This scene in the book is where Stephanie is having trouble with her Nova, and she decides that since she confiscated Morelli's keys when she was in his apartment and he wasn't able to drive his shiny new Jeep, she might as well look after it for him. She is driving down the street, and to her complete and utter horror, Joe is on the opposite side of the street, slack-jawed and wide-eyed, checking out Stephanies new ride. He jumps the curb, parks the van, and tries to run up to the car on a red light unsuccessfully to Steph's relief. Joe then ends up calling her on his car phone passionately quizzing her about where she got her shiny new wheels. LOL
2) Shower scene ~ This is after Joe finds out that Stephanie "commandeered" his car, and he is determined to get it back. She renders the Jeep undriveable by taking the distributor cap off and hides in the bushes to wait for him to reclaim his precious property so that she can taze him. Joe's cousin, Mooch, shows up instead and is unable to take the car back. A soggy and disappointed Stephanie goes up to her apartment and hops in the shower to get warm. Joe barges in on her and finds her armed with nothing but a shampoo bottle. His fuse is a little on the short side. After the interrogation ends badly, Joe handcuffs her to the shower rod and leaves her with the phone to call whomever she chooses to free her. She then has no choice but to call Ranger. After some heavy pleading, he comes to her aid. I have it on good authority that this scene made it into the movie, so I can put away my torch and pitchfork....for now.
3) Turkey Murder ~ Mama Plum is up to her matchmaking schemes again and invites a “winner” over to the house for dinner. Stephanie's new profession comes up, and Grandma Mazur in the process of bragging her up overturns her purse and starts cataloging her bounty hunter loot for the timid suitor. Somehow through all the excitement, Granny loads Stephanie's gun and, channeling Annie Oakley, shoots the innocent bird cooked to perfection right in the gumpy. I'm pretty positive this made it onto the movie because in a recent interview, their publicist said that they wanted to give Grandma Mazur, Debbie Reynolds, more face time and even made up a whole new scene for that reason.
4) Pussymobile ~ After Ramirez meets Stephanie and attacks her in the gym, Joe saves her from what could have been a very bad situation. After a proper tongue lashing and a couple of skinned knees, Joe walks her back to her beater Nova, and the car had been decorated Dayglo Pink with the word "pussy" written all over it. After finding out the beautiful piece of artwork is her car, Joe busts up laughing and says "Usually people go with pinstriping and a vanity plate." I would be very disappointed if this doesn't make it onto the movie.
5) Dumpster Diving ~ Joe catches Stephanie tailing his van, and after a knee knocking kiss he plants on her, he takes the keys from the ignition and throws them into a very ripe deli dumpster. After 2 showers and a bonfire of her clothes, she finally managed to get the putrid stench from her hair. I for one hope that this makes it into the movie because it just proves what a stinker Joe can be and riles Stephanie up even more for revenge. Plus it can evoke a hell of a lot of laughter! Can you just imagine KH wading around in a putrid dumpster looking for the keys… using a bread bag to dig through the muck and grumbling a long string of obscenities under her breath. LOL! This is a must have to me!
6) Lonnie Dodd FTA ~ Stephanie finds Lonnie at his house, and after she asks Lonnie, very nicely I might add, to come in and reschedule his court date, he steals her bag with her gun, pushes her off the porch into the mud, and shuts the door on her. Stephanie learns very quickly that not every FTA is as easy as her first drunken piece of cake capture. She has to call Ranger who comes and helps her and gets shot in the process by Stephanie's gun no less. This is Stephanie's first hard FTA and shows how vulnerable and naive and green she is at her new job. It also paints a very good picture of how impossible it is going to be to find the elusive Morelli. It also gives Ranger more screen time for us to appreciate how great his ass looks in those jeans...I mean...er... how skilled Ranger is...although he does end up getting shot. hahaha.
7) Morty Beyers BBQ ~ After Morty gets out of the hospital with a busted appendix, he asks Stephanie for his FTAs back. When Morty is suddenly rendered carless, he tries to steal Morelli's car from Stephanie. Unfortunately for Morty, a busted appendix ended up being the least of his problems. He ends up in tiny little pieces all over the parking lot when a bomb meant for Stephanie stops his career short. If they have Morty Beyers cast in the movie, which they do, I'm pretty sure this scene is going to make it on the big screen. I'm really looking forward to seeing Morty blown to bounty hunter Baco Bits...No offense to Morty of course...I just enjoy a good pyrotechnics show!!
8) Jimmy Alpha Attacks Stephanie ~ Surprise, surprise...Jimmy Alpha is a bad, bad boy!! He breaks in to Stephanie's apartment in order to do the job himself right this time. Stephanie prevails and Alpha gets "riddled with bullets." Now according to John Leguizamo's script, this is a little different in the movie. It sounds like the climax takes place by the meat truck down by the docks. This doesn't bother me too much just because it seems like a lot of the climaxes to Evanovich's books take place in Stephanie's apartment. A change in scenery doesn't bother me all that much. There are plenty of ways to write this climax to make it work, but all I care about is that it doesn't screw up the next scene I want to make it into the movie.
9) Stephanie Takes Joe for a Chilling Ride ~ Joe gets a little crabby when his mystery guy ends up dead in the back of the refrigerator truck, and he has no one to prove his innocence now. He proceeds to inform Stephanie that she will not be receiving her capture money she desperately needs, and he gets a little cocky and lippy in the meantime. Stephanie then locks him in the refrigerator truck being kind enough to turn up the temperature a little so he doesn't catch cold and drives him to he police station to retrieve her capture receipt. Joe’s not too thrilled with this move and tackles Stephanie the minute the truck door is unlocked. They wrestle for a moment and then Joe gets dragged away cursing like a sailor and promising his revenge. I have a feeling this made it into the script just because on a recent interview with John Leguizamo, he says that Stephanie beats him up, beats up her love which could only be Morelli, and also beats up some other guy (Which might just confirm Lonnie Dodd scene)..So here's hoping my rationalizing is on the right track.
10) Flashbacks of Stephanie's unfortunate mishaps, or fortunate...however you want to look at it, with Joe Morelli growing up. ~ I don't know how they are going to write this in the script, but it would be funny if she has a series of little flashbacks remembering her encounters with Joe Morelli growing up...It doesn’t have to be anything distasteful mind you. Maybe just 2 kids walking up to a garage, and the boy (Joe) is explaining to the girl (Steph) the rules of Choo-Choo. He explains that she is the tunnel and he is the train, and then cut to a screaming little Stephanie running out of the garage...Later a teenage Stephanie working behind the bakery counter sees the confident teenage Joe walk up to buy a cannolli with a mischievous grin on his face. Skip to a couple of feet sticking out behind the eclaire case making the outcome obvious. Then last but not least...Stephanie is driving down the road and sees Morelli walking down the sidewalk. Her face could go from surprised to angered determination as you see her swerve the wheel with a big klunk and Morelli bounces off her bumper. LOL
That's my top ten, folks! Do you agree with my choices or are there some other scenes you would like to see? Please comment below. (If anyone has any incite on any of my top ten choices, about whether or not they will make it in the movie...please feel free to confirm or deny this as well. Wink, wink!!

The dangerously sexy, Jason O'mara is now filming 'Terra Nova,' a new Fox series produced by Steven Speilberg, in Australia.
"According to Deadline, O'Mara will play Jim Shannon, the head of a family that escapes the bleak year of 2149 by traveling back to the prehistoric era. The family joins a group of people hoping to build a shinier, happier civilization and stop the dark and dangerous future from happening."
Sounds pretty interesting right? Anything with Speilerg attached to it is usually worth watching. O'Mara was also in a 6 part television show released in Ireland January 2010, called 'Your Bad Self.'
The gorgeous Daniel Sunjata was a lot harder to find any information on. There is zero info on new projects for Sunjata right now. From what I can gather, he has been a pretty busy boy up til now. He has had 2 T.V. movies come out in April of this year, and a movie coming out sometime this year (haven't posted a release date as of yet) called 'Weakness' about "a suburban high school teacher who loses his wife and his moorings during a summer break." Sunjata will play Alejandro. Season 6 of 'Rescue Me' where he plays firefighter, Franco Rivera, finished a few months ago, and now season 7 will be airing next year on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Daniel Sunjata also keeps fairly busy with his 9/11 projects/fundraisers/etc.
The always lovely Katherine Heigl has been pretty busy postproduction of 'OFTM.' From launching her Compassion Revolution campaign to aid in the epidemic of homeless pets to promoting the premiere of her new movie coming out Friday, October 8, 2010, 'Life As We Know It." Her new movie, 'Life As We Know It,' she plays Holly, and it's about "two single adults become caregivers to an orphaned girl when their mutual best friends die in an accident." Her next projects in the works are: 'Escape,' 'Is He the One,' 'Lost & Found,' 'Drawn Together,' and 'Adaline.' Looks like Heigl is going to be a very busy woman for the next little while.
So there you have it. At least it is some news to tide you over until we can get some "OFTM' tidbits pouring in. Please, Lakeshore, throw us a bone!!!
handsome Josh Lucas is looking very dapper in his blue suit! I love Josh Lucas. I think he is a phenomenal actor. Got my first crush on him when I saw "Sweet Home Alabama." Wish he was in more films.
Sorry for posting nothing but Katherine news lately even though I adore her. I have been trying to get a variety, but she is the only actor from 'OFTM' right now that seems to be getting any press. I'll keep looking! Enjoy!

I have a few great quotes for you today!!
'“I'm from the Burg. I was putting makeup on Barbie before I could walk.” Stephanie, Four to Score'
'“I have a girlfriend who finds dead guys. Why me?” Joe Morelli, Hot Six'
'“If I was a bounty hunter I'd f shoot lots of people.” Sally Sweet, Four to Score'
'“Everyone come to the table before the lamb gets cold. I don't want to hear anymore talk about aliens and killing.” Helen Plum, High Five'Hope you enjoy them!

I have posted other shirtless pics of the hot and sexy Daniel Sunjata before, and they were enough to make me stick my head in the freezer for sure, but this might cause me to have to take a looooong, cold shower! I must confess that I have always thought that Sunjata was gorgeous and fit the description well of Ranger, but I thought he could stand to bulk up a bit as I had mentioned in my early, early posts. Well, I'm eating my words now. The concern I was having with his arms being maybe a little bit to lean has gone right out the window. Obviously this picture I had of DS on set just doesn't do the man justice.
|Ranger on 'OFTM' set. As I said, the guns are kind of hidden here. =(|
|Here is the other shirtless picture I posted a while back, and he does look a little smaller in this one. His chest is still impressive, but you can tell that his shoulders and arms are maybe just a little slimmer here.|
On behalf of all us Ranger Babes out there, thank you so much for the magnificent piece of drool-inducing eye candy! It will happily be going under my pillow tonight along with my picture of Morelli, hopefully provoking some straight up sinful dreams tonight!!! tee-hee..
I certainly did not mean to neglect our beloved and yummy bounty hunter by any means. I just hadn't stumbled across any pics or news lately! So thank you, thank you, thank you!! In fact, I would love to know what day of the week and what time 'Rescue Me' is on, so that I can see Daniel Sunjata in action if anyone knows please?
I actually belong to the group of the undecided when it comes to Team Ranger versus Team Morelli...I love them both equally and have never been able to decide between the mysterious bad boy and the playful Italian love machine. They both seem like heavenly bliss to me, so I'm firmly embedded in Team Rangelli. I just can't wait to watch this movie on the big screen and see if it evokes the same feelings out of me that it did in the book. Will it make it easier for me to decide whom I want more, or will it further continue to keep me torn and conflicted between them both???
So what do you think, ladies??? Is he drool worthy? Is he Ranger? I definitely think that if he is sporting this physique and captures the bad-ass, mysterious vibe that is Ranger, I'll be one very happy woman bouncing up and down in my seat with giddy excitement on July 8th!!

Well looky what I stumbled across when I was looking for some Jason O'Mara info! Joe Morelli Neked!! tee-hee! (This one's for you Iheartjason!)
Okay this is not from 'One for the Money' filming, but it will still be tucked under my pillow giving me sweet dreams tonight!! How people can say this man is not sexy is beyond me!! I just read an article that described him as a more manly Jude Law, and I would have to agree that's a pretty good description.
Also, if anyone has any information on any of the other 'OFTM' actors, interviews, show appearances, etc, I would love to know about it. I've been looking for more info on some of the other actors, but there is not really a lot lately. Would love to watch or read an interview on Jason O'Mara, Daniel Sunjata, or Debbie Reynolds on filming the movie. Thanks in advance!
***UPDATE*** I watched the 'Martha Stewart Show' today, and the 'OFTM' news is zero. =( Katherine was lovely as always, and they made a yummy looking halibut dish on the show. They also showed a new clip of 'Life as we Know it' on the show of the KH and JD changing the baby's diaper that was cute, but that was about it.
|The always beautiful Katherine Heigl|
'"AN unsmiling Katherine Heigl, at work on a new movie in this Pittsburgh suburb in August, stepped out of a chauffeured black S.U.V. and strode onto the set. She briskly filmed her scene and decamped to her air-conditioned trailer. “I admit that I’m particular about the way I work,” she said, stopping to stare at a stuffed rabbit on the floor. She continued her thought, but not before giving the bunny a swift kick.
True? Yes. But the morning could also be accurately described like this: Relaxing in her trailer between scenes, Katherine Heigl apologized for the mess — her daughter, Naleigh, had been playing with stuffed animals. Gracious and funny, Ms. Heigl talked about her struggle to balance work with family. “I guess everything in life requires some kind of compromising,” she said.
So which is it? Cold diva or likable mom?
As Ms. Heigl has learned the hard way, Hollywood and the news media aren’t big on nuance. Stars are supposed to come packaged with neat captions: bubbly (Julia Roberts), charming (George Clooney), quirky (Johnny Depp). When they step outside those assigned boxes, either in a film role or in real life, the machinery starts pushing them back.
Ms. Heigl, 31, has been assigned the diva box. Reporters are supposed to look for the smallest signal of imperiousness. (Bunny, kicked — scribble that down.) Forget that she’s warm and genuine in person. She demanded to be freed from the “Grey’s Anatomy” role that made her a star before her contract came to an end, and for that she will be punished.
Returning to theaters on Friday in “Life as We Know It,” Ms. Heigl has a chance to rehabilitate herself with an industry that is newly nervous about her drawing power — her last film, “Killers,” flopped badly — and redefine her public persona with the popped-claws celebrity media while winning back any “Grey’s Anatomy” fans who may have wandered. “Life as We Know It,” about two single people who become the parents of a little girl when their mutual best friends die in an accident, offers Ms. Heigl the kind of character that won her a fan base in the first place: big-hearted and goofy yet sympathetic and relatable. It’s a comedy, but she does a lot of crying.
Ms. Heigl unwittingly created her image problem by being honest in interviews. Her comments were not particularly scandalous but spawned tabloid feeding frenzies, because she didn’t just mouth promotional platitudes about her projects. When she told Vanity Fair that her 2007 movie “Knocked Up” was “a little bit sexist” — well, duh — the blowback was swift and severe, culminating with her co-star from that film, Seth Rogen, trashing her on Howard Stern’s radio show. Then Ms. Heigl complained about the quality of writing on “Grey’s Anatomy.” Again, duh: Shonda Rhimes, the creator of that show, had Ms. Heigl’s character, Izzie, performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a deer.
But Ms. Heigl was quickly branded a traitor. In a Hollywood twist, her publicist fired her.
Her Q score, a measurement of a star’s likability, has even decreased. In the summer of 2008, 29 percent of people surveyed viewed her positively, according to Marketing Evaluations Inc. This summer it was down to 20 percent. Ms. Roberts, to compare, has a Q score of 38 percent.
It is difficult but not impossible to escape the kind of pigeonhole in which Ms. Heigl finds herself or, better yet, to shift the focus to the acting. Just ask Robert Downey Jr. But it’s usually harder for women in Hollywood to pull off the feat. (It took a decade for Drew Barrymore to escape her party-girl image. Russell Crowe eventually moved beyond his throwing-the-telephone moment. Angelina Jolie has yet to move past being branded a home wrecker.) Is Ms. Heigl willing to cram herself into a pretty-but-not-heard public persona, which is, after all, what the celebrity media want from blond bombshells like her?
She seemed to be struggling with the answer.
“I’ve been told I’m too forthright with opinions,” Ms. Heigl said with a sigh. “Well do they want a fierce woman or milquetoast? Should I be me, or should I pretend to be something I think people want? Pretending seems pretty ridiculous to me.” She paused to think for a moment before adding, “I didn’t think that what I was was so bad that I needed to hide it.”
Later, the topic came up again. “I feel totally normal on a set, probably because I’ve spent so much of my life on one. It’s when I go out into the real world that I don’t seem to know what to do.”
When it comes to her work, Ms. Heigl has proved herself a gifted actress — someone whom movie studios see as finally being able to pick up the romantic comedy baton from Ms. Barrymore and Ms. Roberts. Ms. Heigl won an Emmy Award for her work on “Grey’s Anatomy,” and critics have cheered the natural way she has inhabited roles like the pathological bridesmaid in “27 Dresses,” a 2008 comedy that was made for $30 million and sold more than $160 million at the global box office. She now earns an estimated $15 million per picture.
“Katherine Heigl’s early performances seem to imagine Grace Kelly at a frat party,” said Bob Gazzale, chief executive of the American Film Institute, “but I think a deeper look sees the gifts that Carole Lombard gave the world — stylish, sincere and silly — an artist whose talents run deep beneath the unmistakable glamour of a Hollywood star.”
Although her last film, the $75 million action comedy “Killers,” was a dud, selling only $92 million around the world, expectations are high for “Life as We Know It,” which cost only about $38 million to make. The film, directed by Greg Berlanti (TV’s “Everwood”) and co-starring Josh Duhamel (“Las Vegas”), tries to showcase Ms. Heigl’s range, giving her plenty of slapstick moments along with dramatic scenes. Her character, Holly, is the Type-A owner of a successful bakery, who, after the death of her best friend, receives co-custody of her friend’s baby. Mr. Duhamel’s Messer — a name that tells you all you need to know about him — forces Holly to learn how to roll with the punches.
“For those difficult scenes, where the character has to totally break down, you’re always waiting on bated breath — what happens if the actor can’t get there? — but Katie just did it on a dime,” said Mr. Berlanti, who was also startled to discover that Ms. Heigl has a photographic memory for lines. He recalled a day on the set when she was handed a new scene to learn on the fly.
“She looks at it, says it out loud once to herself, and didn’t need it again for the next eight hours,” he said.
Robert Luketic, who directed Ms. Heigl in “Killers” and “The Ugly Truth,” an inexpensive 2009 comedy that sold about $205 million in tickets, chalks the skill up to television. “Katie always comes prepared and nails it in one or two takes,” Mr. Luketic said.
“Life as We Know It” is also Ms. Heigl’s transition to active producing. She was involved with casting and fought for Mr. Duhamel after Warner Brothers, the studio behind the film, expressed concerns about his comedy chops. (His last lead role in a comedy, which came earlier this year in “When in Rome,” didn’t captivate audiences.) “I’m proud of myself for that,” she said. “People try to talk you out of things. They try to make the safe choice.”'

This is a long but fantastic article. They do mention "OFTM" but never ask her to comment about it, so no new info yet. In fact, the interview took place, it seems, when she was in Pittsburgh filming "One for the Money."=(
To answer KH's question in the article, should she be herself or 'act' the way the media wants her to act? The road less traveled may be a harder road, but I have a hell of a lot more respect for a strong, intelligent woman who tells it like it is than a woman who is a people pleaser. Not that my opinion matters, but I like KH just the way she is....HERSELF!!
