Katherine Heigl isn’t hung up on Grey’s Anatomy, the show that made her a household name. She’s got a new series – Firefly Lane – coming up on Netflix next month, and she’s focused on that. But Grey’s Anatomy still comes up in interviews, especially considering that the character she played, Izzie, got her off-screen “happy ending” with her love interest while on the show, Alex.
Back when it happened, fans had a lot of thoughts. Not all of them good. And it seems Heigl has an opinion too:
“Listen, isn’t that an asshole move?” she told Entertainment Tonight.
It kinda is! That’s the problem. Because, as Heigl asked the interviewer “Wasn’t he with someone?”
Yes, he was. For years. I loved Izzie and Alex together, and as someone who stopped watching the show, I could have been happy about two characters I liked getting a happy ending, but ..but …
Asshole move indeed.
Heigl was also asked if she would consider a return to Grey’s Anatomy, and this was her answer: “I would never say never but it’s not likely.”
I mean, not that it makes sense at this point, after what they wrote.
