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

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.

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."
