To find out how stars like Katherine Heigl came to be who they are today, InStyle got the inside scoop from some reliable sources â€" their moms.

Katherine & Nancy Heigl
InStyle asked the Grey's Anatomy star and her mother both about Hollywood:

Katherine Heigl: "We put all of our stuff in the back of her Jeep â€" we were supposed to share the driving, but I had just gotten my license and I was nervous. We stopped to see my grandmother before we left and she had these old romance novels. My mother made me read them aloud as she drove."

Nancy Heigl: "We just packed up our bags and went to L.A. to seek fame and fortune. Sometimes I look back and think, 'I can't believe I did that!' It has really been an adventure."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
