Does Katherine Heigl need to get some perspective?
I realize that celebrities don't always have an easy time of it. They're hounded by photographers, work crazy hours, spend time away from their families while on location, and never know when their current gig might end through no fault of their own.
But, you know what? The rest of us don't have an easy time of it either. Sure, most of us don't have photographers hounding us at every turn, but we work crazy hours, spend time away from our families working, and never know when OUR current gigs might end through no fault of our own.
So it always drives me a little batty when celebrities whine about having to work long hours and such, like Katherine Heigl did on the Late Show with David Letterman and other talk shows -- especially since the aforementioned long day was the direct result of accommodating her schedule while promoting her new film The Ugly Truth.
For the record, she said, "It was -- I'm going to keep saying this because I hope it embarrasses them -- a 17-hour day, which I think is cruel and mean."
Cruel and mean? No, Katherine. Cruel and mean is what life is when the bank forecloses on your house after you lost your job because your company downsized.
She's probably ticked that T.R. Knight is gone, and maybe she blames the Grey's Anatomy folks for that. But, really, she wouldn't be so quick to whine about long hours if she was out here with the rest of us, eking out a living as best we can. And hey, at least SHE has a job, which is more than a lot of folks can say right now. I love you, Katherine, but wake up!
