Katherine Heigl Talks “Unforgettable” On “GMA” (VIDEO)
Katherine Heigl appeared on Thursday’s “Good Morning America,” where she spoke about her new movie, Unforgettable, and balancing work and her newborn son. Watch the full “GMA” interview below!
The actress sat down for a one-on-one interview with Michael Strahan about her role in the upcoming thriller, Unforgettable. About playing an “evil” character, Heigl said, “It was fun. I know that sounds strange. There’s a weird freedom to playing a woman who is really not a people pleaser, who is not trying to make people happy, who is not bending over backwards for other people’s needs.” She continued, “It’s all about [her character] Tessa, and what she wants.”
Heigl went on to talk about her extreme look in the movie. “It’s really uncomfortable. You have to sit so straight when you’re wearing tight dresses all the time,” she noted. “You have to suck it in and hold your shoulders back, and my hair was always so meticulously groomed, so at night it was all about putting it back in a pony tail and putting my leggings on.”
The conversation then moved to Heigl’s newborn baby boy and her guilt over being a working mom. “It’s been a whirlwind year. Right now, it’s especially complicated because the girls are in school… but the baby needs me to eat. So he comes with me,” said Heigl. “I feel this perpetual mommy guilt, that somehow you’re not nailing it. And to mess up his schedule because of me and my work needs, feels a little selfish. But honestly, I’m going to smack myself and get over that because I’m doing my very best.” Watch Heigl’s full interview below!
