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."

I am such a fan of KH that I dream for her a great career in movie, so she could leave Grey's and I haven't to watch her everyweek.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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."
