Katherine Heigl got dumped

Katherine Heigl is not worth $3 million

Katherine Heigl was dropped from the upcoming romantic comedy Valentine’s Day because of her crazy salary demands. While it is a slight setback for the film, producers feels confident they’ll find another actress to act like a self-important bitch on set. An insider told the New York Post:

“Producers at New Line originally had Katherine on their casting list. They wanted her for the project, but during the talks, she came back demanding $3 million for the role.”

Our source calls that number “ridiculous” because the movie has “an ensemble cast where there is really no one lead role. Actors are only filming between three and 14 days, and no other actors asked for nearly that amount.”

What exactly does Katherine Heigl think she’s done in her career that warrants a $3 million salary as part of an ensemble cast? She has as many Oscar nominations as I do. And to be blunt, she’s a fucking bitch. If I was one of the producers of this movie, I’d actually pay her the $3 million. But then I’d try to destroy her reputation by having her character do something horrible like rape kids. I don’t exactly know how you’d fit that into the plot of a romantic comedy but I’m sure the writers could make it work.
