Katherine Heigl Should Just Go Away

We've centered Katherine Heigl for fear that she will be upset if the image is too small. Heigl is also at the center of another round of gossip that says she is acting like a big old diva -- something that has plagued the actress for awhile now.

According to Page Six, the actress was approached to star in the new film Valentine's Day but demanded a huge pay day for the role. The Grey's Anatomy star and Bride of Chucky alum was demanding $3 million to appear in the film, according the the report. That would be fine, except it has an all-star cast and no one is working for more than 2 weeks on the film.

With heavy hitters like Julia Roberts, Shirley MacLaine, Ashton Kutcher, Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Garner all appearing in the film (for much less than $3 million, one could assume) Heigl would not be the lead and definitely not the top billed actor. The film is being directed by Garry Marshall

Well, the producers scoffed and she peaced out. Her reps have issued a rebuttal saying, "The story is ludicrous. Early negotiations are a daily occurrence in this business, and just for clarification, Katherine walked away from this project for multiple reasons."

Could it be for 3 million reasons? Just saying...

This story only further make her reputation of difficult more concrete. In the past she has lashed out at Knocked Up, saying that it portrayed women as "shrews", and last year withdrew her name from Emmy contention because she didn't have material that was worthy of a nomination. This isn't even including anything from the Grey's Anatomy on-set brew-ha-ha with Isiah Washington.

Hopefully Hollywood doesn't get tired of this demanding starlet or she'll be lucky to even get onto another television show, let alone a high profile film.
