Katherine Heigl Once Had a Thing For T.R. Knight

by at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl was shocked to find out her co-star T.R Knight was gay - because she had spent the show's pilot flirting with him.

The Knocked Up actress, who married singer Josh Kelley (below) last December, was a single gal when shooting began on the hit medical drama in 2005.

That said, a handsome co-star caught her eye.

The actress' romantic plans didn't going anyway - her lustful looks were ignored as it turned out T.R. Knight (dating Mark Cornelsen at present) is gay. She says:

"When we were filming the pilot I was single and so was he and I kind of had my eye on him. I was getting nowhere and I was super-confused. I was like, 'Hello? Do I have something hanging out of my nose? Why aren't you paying any attention to me? Needless to say, it quickly became a friendship once he told me."

Mr. & Mrs. Kelley

Funny stuff. In the end, it all worked out, as Katherine Heigl ended up with a great husband in Josh Kelley and a best friend (on and off the show) in T.R. Knight.

Hannah, polls can be manipulated. With my friends and relatives who are fans of GREY"s, none like Gizzie but that does not mean anything in your Gizzie world..
I guess it depends on what kind of men one finds sexy and exciting. I think Justine Chambers is the kind of good/bad boy that some women loves and he is HANDSOME whereas, TR Knight/George is like a 10 year old boy playing at being grown-up and he is not one bit sexy nor good-looking to me or to my friends. George is just a blob.....KH is hot and so is Callie/.SR so it is too unbelievable that 2 hot women would fall for a non-man like George.As for being nice, Alex is just as caring and loyal and he does not judge nor whinges but George whines, weak and blames other for his failings.
Of course, one's poison is another's gold. And I am very, very happy Gizzie is over. This so- called- couple just makes me sick to my stomach. If it had continued, it is bye, bye to Grey's for me.I like to feel good when I watch a tv story. Gizzie is the worst "couple" on tv. Totally unbelievable. Izzie is too beautiful for a non-man like George( yes, shallow but this is tv).and totally no sexual chemistry to speak of. I want to say that Izzie is not the only one to blame for Gizzie. George is worst in this sordid affair. He is the married one and if the marriage is not working, get out before jumping into bed with the big-boobs woman of this wimp's fantasy.
KH's husband is not that bad in looks ( a bit too thin though) as long a he keeps his hair off his face. He has a lovely smile but when he has his hairy face on, it makes him look like someone to scare children away.
By the way, I am from OZ.

ALL RIGHT-- settle down haters. And STOP POSTING NASTINESS!!
TRKHater-- leave the F word off. Really, do you kiss your mother with that mouth??
I think TR & Katherine have great chemistry. The story is sort of cute. Certainly gives light to the chemistry that is underlying the Gizzie chemistry-- which I think is amazing and hot!
As for bashing George's character --- ? saying his character has gone downhill? I don't get that. I think that George's character has gone great places. So, he's not perfect. His imperfections make him real and his perfections make him sweet. TRK does a phenomenal job making one of the BEST characters come alive.
Oh, and I think that Katherine has great taste-- TRK is absolutely adorable!

here in Australia, Gizzie is really popular. After episode 7 where Gizzie was proclaimed to have no chemistry, yahoo 7, where Grey airs asked people if they agreed with the no-chemistry statement and 77% of people there said they had great chemistry, 63% said they were hot to trot, 14% they were hot but Izzie was trying too hard and only 23% said they had no chemistry, but 8% of those 23% thought they had potential. There were about 2000 votes in not even 2 days, and it was the biggest vote this site had ever gotten. And then a poll last week asked people which couple was their favorite couple in Grey history and Gizzie won by 51% of the vote Here is the link:
http://au.tv.yahoo.com/b/greys... It is too abd they not seem popular here as I think they are the best couple on TV, although they did win on BuddyTV the favorite couple showdown and that is an American site and the official Grey mag said they kept receiving so many pro-Gizzie letters, so am a bit mixed up. I guess it depends on what site you go. Shrug, I love them and always will, and think they have fabulous chemistry. Oh and I would sleep with TR anyday, I have been in lust with him since that elevator kiss and what he did with his hands, the guy is one HOT kisser, gay or not. Justin sort of skeeves me out, sorry. He is very talented and I like him as an actor, but physically, nah, I love TR more. And he definitely is more attractive than Katie's husband

Wow, shallow much. I would take TR over Justin any day. Justin has this weird harsh face that constantly looks constipated. My mom keeps saying how ugly he is. TR has a beautiful face, gorgeous eyes you could get lost in forever and a smile that lights up the room. In my eyes, Katie has really great tastes. And Gizzie were great together. I miss them.

Gosh, there are some really mean , jealous people on this board. Kh is not all about herelf. She is making this statement because she may now think it is kinda funny. I found nothing vain by that statement.
Are there not one of you critizing her, not have that kind of feeling before??

Katherine Heigl must have pretty bad taste if she fancied TR Knight because , seriously, that guy is so gay and she can't see it. He is also a foot shoter than her and they also dont match well together.
Justin chambers , I can understand because he is all man but he is married. TR Knight is a twit, a nice guy but a twit just the same.
I love Katherine Heigl and I find her some of her comments quite hilarious.
And that is why Gizzie was so hard to watch.....no romantic chemistry...friendship chem only.

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."
