Katherine Heigl for ELLE Magazine

Posted on December 15, 2011

True story: We’ve been sitting on this post for days now. Not because it’s explosive or that it required a lot of work, but because Tom was somewhat agressively ambivalent about featuring her. He doesn’t hate her, the way half the internet seems to, but…

“She’s … I don’t know… bland.”

“But she looks great here!”

“I think she’s more use to us as bitchy fashion bloggers when she wears something from her vast collection of oversized coats.”

“Yeah, but Joe styled her and he did a fabulous job! Again! Just hold something over her face and look at the clothes.”

“…

Ok, yes. She does look pretty great.”
Katherine Heigl for ELLE Magazine

Katherine Heigl featured in the January 2012 issue of ELLE magazine photographed by Carter Smith and styled by Joe Zee.

On her public perception:“I’ve never really been America’s sweetheart… I had ’em for a second thinking maybe I was. And then I opened my mouth, and it was very clear I wasn’t. There’s so much of my mother’s caustic, sarcastic, irreverent take on things. But I also love and embrace it.”

On dealing with the demands of Hollywood: “I overdramatize. And I think everything is at stake—my life, my career, my family, everything is at stake if this movie doesn’t do well.”

On seeking approval: “I’m just that asshole who really wants everyone to like me, and it’s a ridiculous goal and it’s an impossible goal. But I think if I just keep pushing forward and showing myself through and through, they will see me again for what I really am and not what has been sort of spun about me.”

Tear the above quotes apart. As we said, we (because Lorenzo feels the same way) aren’t particularly invested either way. She grates sometimes, but not enough to get a spot on our Celebrities We Irrationally Hate list. Bottom line: we don’t watch rom-coms. Like, at all. So most of her work has eluded us completely. We watched about a half hour of that one she did with Josh Duhamel where she had to raise Christina Hendricks’ baby and it was fine. Perfectly acceptable but totally not a movie we’d be interested in watching.

Anyway, Joe Zee knocked it out of the park on the styling. She’s made for big chunky necklaces and winter whites. And this is the first time in ages her hair has looked young and sexy.

    She looks good in black and white.  Joe’s styling is really hit or miss.  Like his show.  And the mag.

    She does look fabulous here. The quotes are interesting, if you like ping pong. In her response to half the internet hating her: “I tried to be America’s sweetheart, but I’m really an asshole [her word] and people need to accept that. But I want everyone to love me and see that I’m not an asshole.”

    At least, that’s how I read it. Not really invested in loving or hating her, but she has that Paltrow quality of seeming just so damned pleased with herself most of the time.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      You finally got it for me.  NOW I understand why she and La Paltrow and a few others grate so on me.  Its their sublime self satisfaction that annoys me no end.  And all that said, yeah I must admit she looks awesome here, even though that last B/W shot has her photoshopped into another dimension.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ebba-Svantesson/1750647220 Ebba Svantesson

      I dislike her and I think you nailed the reason why but it feels really hypocritical to hate on them for being confident  and pleased with themselves. I never dislike any men for seeming self confident and have a good self esteem.

        Oh plenty of self-satisfied men bug the crap out of me. Kutcher and Cruise chief among them. I actually favor a broad who speaks frankly, and I love me some sarcasm. There just isn’t much about Heigl that seems “authentic,” for want of a better word.

        • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

          I’ve never had the feeling that she’s not authentic, although I haven’t followed her closely, so you could be right. When I think inauthentic, I think of Ashley Judd, whose every word sounds planned and phony. She’s very high on my list of Celebrities I Irrationally Hate.

          I’ve always been so taken with how beautiful Heigl is, starting with her role in Roswell, that I can’t seem to get past it. On the other hand, my god, she makes crappy movies.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1326120071 Gaby Ripoll

      I think she’s a hypocrite because she made Knocked Up, complained about it being antifeminist, and then followed it up with 27 Dresses and The Ugly Truth. And then these quotes only reinforce the general sentiment that she has no grasp of consistency in her statements. I get that most of Hollywood is super fake, but her PR team must be terribly at odds with itself. 

      • Good Shot

        I didn’t like her way back when in My Father the Zero with Gerard Depardon’t – gah, what a creepy, crappy movie that was.

    • Anonymous

      I think she looks beautiful.  I also think she’s anxious and wants to be liked.  I wonder if Hollywood is just to toxic for her.  Unlike my friend Anathema, whom I adore, I have no connection between this actress with Paltrow at all . Paltrow NEVER would say she cared if anyone liked her at all.  Paltrow isn’t that human.  She never gets anxious or wants to be liked at all.

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

        Oh, honey… Gwyneth Paltrow is ALL ABOUT being liked.  She just pairs it with a gift for self-delusion that rivals my sister’s, leading her to believe that her nonsense actual leads there. 

        Both of them have a startling inability to put together words in a way that WON’T annoy everyone within hearing distance.

      The funny thing is that the first few times I saw the trailer for the Charlize movie “Young Adult” I thought it starred Katherine Heigl.

  • BerlinerNYC

    Damn her for looking amazing and seeming somewhat unhateable. (Did I just hate her character on Grey’s and get confused?) That picture in the shoulderless dress with the rope neckless is amazing and somehow timeless. The b&w pic with the glass looks like an ad for Hennessy, but in a good way.

    • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

      I hated her character in Roswell.  Mainly because I thought she was a moron for not appreciating Colin Hanks…

    Her face (and hair) look totally 80s. Just an observation, but if you already probably look older than you actually are, going total throwback might not be the best idea.

    • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

      To be fair, that might actually work for her.  I mean, really look at the girl’s face — she would have EASILY conquered Hollywood in the 80′s.  Her look is perfect for the decade.

  • Anonymous

    Heigl is a genuinely talented actress, even in otherwise throw-away rom-coms. It is a shame she has started dressing like Joan Collins in real life. Agreed her hair and everything else looks much better here than it has in forever. Joe Zee needs to style her full time.

    • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

      Absolutely.  I love her movies (in a watch-on-cable, not pay-ticket-price way)

    • Anonymous

      I’m ambivalent on her (haven’t seen any of her movies).  But I feel sorry for any actress trying to make Rom Coms these days.  The scripts are horrible!  Why is it so hard?  1.  Appealing girl  2.  Appealing guy  3.  Heavily manufactured reason why they can’t get togehter which is ultimately overcome 4.  Witty dialogue….

      Oh, yeah, no. 4 is the problem, isn’t it.  Can’t CGI the dialogue, can they?

      (I’m watching Holiday Inn right now:  classic rom com with singing and dancing!)

        She is one of the few people on my irrational hate list.

        I watch
        romantic comedies. I like romantic comedies. And I’ve seen maybe 3 of hers and they were all pretty
        bad(story-wise) with unlikable characters. I now avoid movies that
        she’s in because I think she’s that bad at picking projects.

        A lot of current rom coms have the same problems, hers just seem more consistent than most.

  • http://www.facebook.com/charlotte.horseman Charlotte Horseman

    The styling turned her into a different person completely which usually is a bad thing, but this time is totally OK because, like you, I don’t follow her at all so I don’t care if she looks like ”her”.  The black & whites are fabulous…

    I’m neutral on her, though she comes off as bitchy, but I think she just has a bitch face and may be a genuinely nice person.  I don’t care much for the cover shot, but the others are great. Glad she’s letting her hair grow out, since she got it cut to match her mom’s.

    I’m not at all familiar with her work.  I love that Fendi dress, and she does look great in it.  Love her hair, too.  Heck, she looks great in all these photos.  Kudos to her stylists and the photographer.

  • CQAussie

    Well done Joe Zee – this is the first time Heigl has looked remotely likeable.  The way she is styled is fantastic, I loved every photo and am coveting all the clothes.  Mission accomplished!

    The way she dealt with Greys was immature and entitled.  Then she got some decent roles in movies that put her firmly on the map – and she had to open her big mouth again.  Don’t Be A Dick – and the public won’t hate you.  Full stop.  

    “…..And then I opened my mouth, and it was very clear I wasn’t. There’s so much of my mother’s caustic, sarcastic, irreverent take on things.”……If you’re going to make a living out of public admiration and worship – it’s best to temper the sarcasm with some likability.  Don’t shit where you eat.  Say what you want – but say it with some grace and it’ll go a long way.  Subtlety is not this woman’s friend.  I know plenty of sarcastic people who haven’t burnt all their bridges.

    “I overdramatize. And I think everything is at stake—my life, my career, my family, everything is at stake if this movie doesn’t do well.”…..then why does she run her mouth and make SURE that people are cheesed off with her stinky attitude?

    “I’m just that asshole who really wants everyone to like me, and it’s a ridiculous goal and it’s an impossible goal. But I think if I just keep pushing forward and showing myself through and through, they will see me again for what I really am and not what has been sort of spun about me.”……..OMG Heigl.  Get over yourself.  If you’re an asshole, you’re an asshole.  I’m married to an asshole and I love him to pieces!  And so do (most) of our friends =D  Be an asshole – just stop being a dick about your life & what you do for a living, which is pretty fabulous and wonderful, because you want desperately to be liked by the unwashed masses.  You’re rich, famous and you’re beautiful.  Good for you!  Own it.  Do something with it.  Then you can be that asshole that actually made a difference or helped people.  And we’ll love you for it and defend you being an asshole.

    Now I best go rinse my mouth out =D

    She looks pretty damn great here. Hair, clothes, face. All winners. I love the last three necklaces and the cute crystal belt. I think the first quote is refreshing. I don’t think there is enough here to determine if she’s ungrateful or really full of herself.
     
    I don’t watch a lot of rom-coms and Grey’s just became a silly soap opera and I couldn’t bear it afterawhile.

  • up with pod people

    I think Heigl has been hit with the Kristen Stewart curse of “women who don’t act As They Should getting media slimed” so I refuse to hate her, though I never see her movies either. She looks great.

    • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

      See, Kristen Stewart I sincerely feel for — I think she’s just really awkward, and I sympathize.  Katherine Heigl, on the other hand, is a moron, and one who doesn’t accept that she is.  I don’t watch Grey’s Anatomy, so I really have little to say on that other than that anyone who gets to work with Patrick Dempsey should be thrilled (he’s on my Irrational Love list).

      For me, it was the comments about Knocked Up.  Number 1, they were totally off-base — “Oh, it was so sexist because it made the men look like these fun-loving, fantastic people while the women were shrews.”  Um… what movie did you watch, lady?!?  ‘Cause the men came off as being immature and irresponsible to EVERYONE I know!  And Number 2, she made these comments WHILE MAKING THE UGLY TRUTH!  You don’t get to disavow a movie that everyone liked you in for being sexist and then turn around and make a FAR more sexist movie that isn’t even very funny.

      • up with pod people

        eyh, I just can’t get too fussed. She’s a woman who has dared to communicate imperfectly (gasp) and make mercenary film choices. Meanwhile, Russell Crowe is a complete maniac and Christian Bale and Alec Baldwin lose it while being recorded (these names just off the top of my head) and they get a tut-tut… and oodles of acclaim and awards. I just don’t go in for celebrity witch-hunts any more, especially for women.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          But she’s done the same thing REPEATEDLY.  I wouldn’t care if she wanted to be a total bitch about everyone she’s ever worked with — in fact, it would make her far more interesting to me — but if you want to be that honest, don’t be shocked when people think you suck.  Whether true or not, whether fair or not, almost 100 years of Hollywood history should have shown you that. 

          And frankly, she’s not good enough to get by with it.  Women who have been that difficult to work with and stayed relevant have been INCREDIBLE actesses — Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn, Barbra Streisand.  She’s none of the above. 

          Also, comparing Heigl’s DELIBERATE comments TO THE PRESS about people she’s worked with and projects she’s done to Alec Baldwin’s or Christian Bale’s reasonably assumed PRIVATE conversations is unfair.  The better example would be Shia LeBouf and his comments re: Transformers 2 and Indiana Jones 4.  And yeah, I think he’s a douche for it.  I’m of a mind with Harrison Ford on this one: you agree to make a movie, you give the absolute best performance you can give, and then you go out and do press and give everything you’ve got to making that movie a success.  Because THAT’S what you said you’d do when you took the part.  Slamming a movie for being sexist crap is not doing that.

    I hate the cover shot — the half untucked blouse with the fingers in the back pockets and then she’s leaning forward… it all combines to make it look like she’s pulling her pants down and they snapped the picture before she could turn and moon them.  Which, frankly, may well have been the most interesting thing she’s done since Roswell.

I have one (Georgetown Junior Women’s League Thrift Shop, an effing *steal*) I bought 25 +? years ago that I wore till everyone but me was sick of it.  It may be time to see if I can revive it, it was an oddity of its time in not having giant shoulder pads.

    Joe Zee is the star here. Pure class.

    I like it but I also don’t.  And those quotes?  Now I get why she did 27 Dresses and the Ugly Truth after what she said about Knocked Up.  Guess she wanted people to like her more than she wanted to stick to her guns.  Sad.  I don’t irrationally hate her.  I like her movies well enough, even though they’re filled with the kind of people that make me hope the apocalypse is coming soon.

    She looks like Charlize Theron on the cover.

    Maybe it’s because I just (re)watched the first season of MadMen, but in the first b&w she reminds me of Jackie O and the second, she reminds me of Marilyn.  Agreed, the styling is perfect.

    The last and next to last pictures made my jaw drop. She looks fantastic! WERQ, Joe Zee!

    She has never looked better and I think she’s gorgeous.  She usually styles herself like a much, much, much older woman.

    Don’t like her as an actress at all, but these pictures are wonderful.

    To me, she’s the poor man’s version of Charlize Theron.  Not as interesting, not as talented, and just trying too damn hard.
