It's a Little Sexist: Katherine Heigl

Actress Katherine Heigl has done a swift u-turn after labelling her smash hit movie Knocked Up "sexist.”

The film - in which Katherine plays a TV journalist who becomes pregnant after a one-night stand with Seth Rogen's unemployed slob - was one of 2007's big-hitters, boosting her earnings from $300,000 to $6 million per picture.

But in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the actress said: "It's a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humourless and uptight and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys.

“It was hard for me to love the movie."

Now, Katherine is back-peddling, insisting the comments were taken out of context.

She tells "It's important to me to take a minute and clarify the quote about Knocked Up in Vanity Fair.

"I was responding to previous reviews about the movie the interviewer brought to my attention. My motive was to encourage other women like myself to not take that element of the movie too seriously and to remember that it's a broad comedy.

"Although I stand behind my opinion, I'm disheartened that it has become the focus of my experience with the movie.

"The truth is, it was the best filming experience of my career. Every person that was a part of making Knocked Up helped to encourage, support and inspire me. I never intended for anyone to think otherwise."
