Katherine Heigl knows best how to cash in while she's hot. The actress, who earned a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of intern Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens in the hit TV series "Grey's Anatomy", is branching out. She's about to launch her own line of hospital gear.
Heigl is teaming up with a healthcare-clothing company to launch the Katherine Heigl Collection. "I have tremendous respect for women in the healthcare industry and I know that it is often a difficult and thankless job," the actress said.
"I wanted to create a line of scrubs that would allow women to infuse some of their personality and style into their work apparel. When you feel good about how you look, you are more confident, more motivated and it can lift your spirits," she added.
In related news, Heigl has also been tapped to serve as one of the presenters for this year MTV Movie Awards, set to air live on June 3, 2007 at 8:00pm/7c from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.
Heigl would next be seen starring in the romantic comedy "27 Dresses", scheduled to hit the theaters January 11th next year.
