When bridges burn, they stay burnt!
That's what Katherine Heigl learned the hard way nearly a decade after she berated the Judd Apatow comedy Knocked Up — in which she starred alongside Seth Rogen.
The Unforgettable actress stopped by the The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday and clarified the negative comments she made about the 2007 comedy.

Following the film's successful release, Heigl slammed the comedy as being "a little sexist" in a Vanity Fair interview, saying the movie "paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight."
Obviously, that scathing review of her own movie didn't sit so well with Rogen and Apatow — who made it clear they wouldn't be working with Heigl anytime soon after that.
But in Wednesday's interview, the 37-year-old said her statement was "dumb," and said the comments were more about how she portrayed the character. She explained:
"I liked the movie a lot. I just didn't like [my character]. She was so judgmental and kind of uptight and controlling and all these things. Judd allows everyone to be very free and improvise, and afterwards, I was like, why is that where I went with this? What an assh*le she is!"
Over the years, the actress has even thought about writing an apology to Rogen and Apatow, but felt "embarrassed" to do so.

Though if the comedic geniuses took her back, Heigl would do so in a heartbeat — but she isn't holding her breath! She said:
"I would love to. I don't think [Seth] would with me though. I think he's really mad at me."
All the more reason to apologize, girl!
