It’s no secret that Katherine Heigl has pretty much burned all her bridges in Hollywood, and fellow industry workers dislike her, but has she lost her fans’ support too?
Once an A-list star who starred in blockbuster movies and made big headlines, Heigl is now having trouble finishing her latest project. The former ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ star has been working on an independent movie project, ‘Jenny’s Wedding‘, where she plays a gay woman who comes out to her family and marries her partner, which is played by Alexis Bledel.
The filming has been completed and all that’s left is the post-production, which is where the problems start. There’s no more money. Heigl and the film’s producers have started a Indigogo campaign in an attempt to raise $150,000 to complete the movie. The campaign has been up for over two weeks and has only 30 days left and all they’ve raised is $33, 196. So things are not good.
Katherine was approached by a TMZ reporter at the airport and when asked if she will pay for the difference herself if the campaign fails, she basically said “no” because she hasn’t made that much money in the past years.
“I haven’t made that much in the last few years, man. I gotta support my family,” she answered.
The 35 years-old actress also opened up about the topic of the movie, joking about the research she did for the role: “I did full on threesomes and I watched threesomes,” she said. “It has nothing to do with that. It has everything to do with emotion and love and finding the right person in your life and I already know all that.”
She’s right. Her last two movies both tanked at the box office.
But Katherine still has some money left from her good days in Hollywood. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she’s worth $18 million. So theoretically, she could more than afford to pay the difference herself. However, given her bad reputation and lack of successful work in the past years, she’s smart to be holding on to that money.
Will Katherine Heigl raise enough donations to finish her movie?
Should she pay for the difference herself?
