Katherine Heigl Visits The Late Show

at . Comments

Katherine Heigl made a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman Monday, and complained (semi-jokingly) about returning to the set of Grey's Anatomy last week.

“Our first day back Wednesday was - I’m going to keep saying this because I hope it embarrasses them - a 17-hour day,” she said, “which I think is cruel and mean.”

“It was actually kind of really great to be back,” she added after.

“All my friends are there and at this point, they’re sort of like family, although it was a little weird because [T.R. Knight]’s not there anymore.”

Katherine Heigl remained tight-lipped about the fate of Izzie.

“You last saw Izzie, you know, flatlining,” she said.

“So, I won’t give it away but, you know, I’m there so I’m either there as a ghost, on the other side or I survived a disease no one survives.”

“I’m guessing that if you’re working 17 hours, that means you’re not dead,” Letterman said. Heigl’s reply: “What if, however, Dave, I was in a bed in a coma for 17 hours, they could do that ...” Dave responded if they did that to him, no one would know the difference.


Heigl said she hopes Grey’s Anatomy, which returns to ABC on September 24, will stick around for a while - with her on it: “We have another two years, I think, at least in the contract ... Hopefully the show goes, you know, ER time, which would be cool.”

Indeed. Here's Katherine's interview on The Late Show ...

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."
