New report has just surfaced that Katherine Heigl is considering leaving hit U.S. TV show "Grey's Anatomy" to concentrate on her film career.
Katherine Heigl is biting the hands that feed her. The actress, according to various news media, is considering leaving the hit TV series "Grey's Anatomy" that has catapulted her to stardom to fully concentrate on her film career.
Heigl reportedly is disillusioned with the long working hours on the ABC medical drama. "She's working really long hours and is ready to move on. She's a smart one," a source close to her revealed. "She saw what can happen with someone like Jennifer Aniston, who was crazy successful on TV, but can't seem to carry a film, and she tested the waters early."
Though so, she's said to be locked into her contract and thus will have to continue starring as Dr. Isobel Stevens as the source told US Weekly, "I don't think she'll be able to get out of it."
Heigl has yet issued a single word on the report. She, in the meantime, has scored two box office hits with "Knocked Up" and "27 Dresses" and could next be seen starring in the comedy romance "The Ugly Truth" which has been slated for an April 4, 2009 release date.
