No, that's not what she said, but close.

Let's start with the comment that started this whole mess. In 2008 she told Vanity Fair:

[The movie] paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days. I’m playing such a bitch; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you’re portraying women?

Fair point TBH. She most recently told Howard Stern:

[The interviewer] said, ‘You know a lot of women felt it was a little sexist.’ And I felt obligated to answer.

Also totally fair. So why are we talking about this? Because instead of addressing the treatment of women within the film Knocked Up and other celluloid examples of misogyny, Rogen decided to make it about, um, men. He told Stern (in a separate interview)...

I thought we had a great dynamic... And then when I found out afterwards that she didn’t like it, that she seemed not to like the process, and that she didn’t like the end process either... your trust feels somewhat betrayed.


So did he expect Heigl to do a rewrite of the script? Should one woman fix the sexist problems of binders full of men? Is it about the process or someone attacking the patriarchy?

Regardless, Heigl recently said of Rogen:

I think that he’s handled that so beautifully, and I just feel nothing but love and respect. And it was so long ago at this point, I just wish him so much goodness, and I felt that from him, too.


It's good to see there's no ill will toward each other. Because let's be real, Knocked Up is a pretty great movie.
