Katherine Heigl Named One of 2007's Most Fascinating

by at . Comments

Each year, Barbara Walters hosts a special on ABC, interviewing the people that she deems the most fascinating people of that year. This year's show will air on December 6 and will feature Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Hudson, and Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl as part of the 10 Most Fascinating.

Katherine Heigl certainly had an eventful year that put her in the spotlight. She starred in the movie Knocked Up with Seth Rogen, winning critical acclaim and doing extremely well commercially. She also won the 2007 Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Dr. Izzie Stevens.

Katherine Heigl also got engaged to singer/songwriter Josh Kelley, and their wedding is scheduled to take place next month, just before Christmas.

Of course, part of what makes Katherine Heigl fascinating is also controversial. While the rest of the Grey's Anatomy cast was tight-lipped during the infamous Isaiah Washington incident(s), Heigl was outspoken regarding the matter. Katherine has never been afraid to be anything but herself, that's for sure, for better or for worse.

Besides Heigl, Walters will also speak to Victoria and David Beckham, as well as former President Bill Clinton, the two masterminds behind MySpace, and many more. Last year, Barbara Walters dubbed one of Heigl's co-stars one of the most fascinating people of 2006 - the talented, handsome Patrick Dempsey.

Congrats to her but hopefully she wont let something like this go to her head. Patrick was on this list like a year or two ago and he hasn't let it go to his head so hopefully Kat does the same.

Ok, Katherine Heigl is amazing! And knocked up was so hilarious, she definetly deserves this. Izzie is one of my favorite characters on Grey's.

Well congrat Kathy, i like her but she is definately not my favorite. However, she has been wanting and waiting for this kind of attention for long, so its only fair that God will answer her prays at one point.

She gets alot of attention and I think she is overrated. Her movie Knocked UP I didn't care for it at all. I don't think she is fascinating at all.

i for one don't think katherine heigl is fascinating at all. she seems pretentious and has an air of superioity about her that just rubs me the wrong way.

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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
