The article by Leslie Bennetts shows Heigl to be very down-to-earth:
"As women, we have more of a tendency to be people-pleasers, and I know a lot of women who are not vocal about what makes them happy. I was like that in my early 20s, but not anymore I spent a lot of time not being clear about who I was and what was important to me. It's easy to be taken advantage of if you're not honest.... I decided I was sick of trying to figure out what everybody else wanted, and I should just decide what I want, and be honest, and not spend all my time guessing."
"I don't have any grand illusions about marriage. I think it's a crapshoot. The odds are really bad, especially in this town."
On her success:
"I am thrilled and grateful and excited; it's all amazingly wonderful.... I'm still working hard, but it doesn't feel like I'm banging my head against the wall anymore. There were a lot of years of trying to get people to hire me. I was auditioning for everything, just to pay the bills, and I wasn't doing work I wanted to do. It was disheartening. But power in this town comes with box office. When heads of studios call you on your cell phone to tell you they loved your movie, it's like, Are you serious? This is somebody I couldn't even have gotten into the room with to audition for two years ago!"
