Katherine Heigl Loves Grey's Anatomy, Cast

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl was spotted in Beverly Center with her musician husband, Josh Kelley, in Los Angeles, Calif., on Thursday.

As usual, the newlyweds make an awfully cute couple. But the reason we're talking about Katherine Heigl is that she's addressed some of the recent rumors that she's thinking about (desperate to be) leaving the cast of our favorite show.

The Grey's Anatomy gossip on the street indicates that Heigl, 29, has had such box office successes with Knocked Up and 27 Dresses that she is looking for ways to pry herself off the large, ensemble cast assembled at Seattle Grace.

But Katherine Heigl, who remains under contract, insists she's looking forward to returning to the hit ABC medical drama and her role as Dr. Izzie Stevens.

"When I come back to work on Grey's Anatomy, I am actually really excited. After nine months a year for four years, of course you're sometimes going to think, ‘I want to be someone else for a while,'" she said.

"I landed some really good things and was able to do them in my breaks. It broke up the monotony of the character and I'm very, very grateful for opportunities. But Grey's Anatomy has such a good cast. Everybody is amazing."

Hey Ally -- don't you have anything better to do than post nastiness? GO AWAY! I think Katie did really address the fans. I'm sure movies are a big draw for her. I am happy to hear that, at least for now, she's staying with Greys and keeping our beloved Izzie alive and kicking!!
Thanks Katherine!!


Katherine Heigl is a fugly mess.


Yes, playing the same character all the time day in day out can get monotous and boring at times, but it does provide a steady and secure paycheck, which acting on the big screen doesn't! Not unles you are some super big star, and as good as Katherine is, she hasn't reched the level of Jolie, Roberts, Tharon etc... just yet, she still hasn't pocketed a 20. mio paycheck for a movie, and until she does that she should stick to playing Izzie, who by the way is a perfectly fine and at times very exciting character to play! She could do worse than Izzie! So Katherine, stick to Grey's Anatomy for now!


She never said she did not want to leave the show just that she likes the cast and respects them. I suspect she is ready to move on, with good reason - movies are quicker to shoot and you make more money. Plus she can play a wider variety of roles, I am sure playing the same character week after week can get pretty monotonous and boring.


That is great news. Very happy that she addressed the concern of fans. :)


Glad to hear it Katherine! Izzie just wouldn't be Izzie without you! And Grey's would have a big empty hole in it without Izzie. I am SO looking forward to new epis!!


So glad to hear that! (And as always they look amazing as a couple!)


They're cute together. I'm really happy for her successes and hope for more movies and TV shows from her.


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.


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."
