Biografie von Katherine Heigl

hat alles, was man sich nur wünschen kann: Sie sieht umwerfend aus, hat ihren Traummann getroffen und die Fans lieben sie. Trotzdem ist sie (scheinbar) das nette Mädchen von nebenan geblieben. Ausschweifende Partynächte gibt es bei ihr nicht - sie steckt ihre Energie lieber in ihre Karriere, ihr Familienleben und ihr soziales Engagement. Doch ein Engel ist sie deshalb noch lange nicht: Manche nennen sie die meistgehasste Schauspielerin Hollywoods.

Kindermodel mit bodenständigen Wurzeln

Ihre ruhige Lebensweise hat sie wohl schon als Kind von ihren Eltern vermittelt bekommen, denn Katherine Marie Heigl wuchs in einer Mormonenfamilie mit deutschen und irischen Vorfahren auf. Auch wenn als Kind nicht immer derselben Meinung war wie ihre Eltern, hielt sie deren Regeln dennoch ein. Deshalb ging sie zum Beispiel auch erst ab ihrem 16. Lebensjahr mit Jungs aus. Aber früher hätte sie auch keine Zeit dazu gehabt, denn seitdem Katherine mit neun Jahren für ein Haarpflegeprodukt geworben hatte, war sie ein beliebtes Kindermodel.

Hollywood-Debüt als Filmtochter von Depardieu

Katherines Schauspielkarriere begann 1994 mit dem Film "Daddy Cool", in dem sie neben die Hauptrolle spielte. Nach mehreren Filmrollen und sogar einem Abstecher ins Horrorgenre konnte sich die attraktive Blondine einen festen Platz in der Science-Fiction-Serie "Roswell" sichern. Wie passend, dass sie ihren langjährigen Freund, den Schauspieler Jason Behr, dort auch jeden Tag am Set sehen konnte, denn er gehörte ebenfalls zum "Roswell"-Team. Nach dem Serienende war Katherine noch in mehreren TV- und Kinoproduktionen wie "Wuthering Heights" oder "Side Effects" zu sehen, bevor sie den ganz großen Coup landete: Katherine spielte in der Krankenhausserie "Grey's Anatomy" die Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens. Die Serie schlug ein wie eine Bombe, plötzlich hatte Katherine doppelt so viele Fans wie vorher. Für die Rolle der Assistenzärztin war sie 2006 sogar für einen Golden Globe nominiert. Bis 2010 blieb sie der Rolle, die sie so bekannt machte, treu.

Privates Glück mit Traummann Josh Kelley

2007 schlug Katherine ein neues Kapitel in ihrem Leben auf: Im Dezember heiratete sie den Musiker , den sie bei einem Musikvideodreh kennengelernt hatte. Im Jahr 2009 machte Naleigh, eine kleine Adoptivtochter aus Korea, das Paar zur Kleinfamilie und Katherine zur überglücklichen Mutter. Im April 2012 bekam Naleigh eine Schwester: Das neue Familienmitglied heißt Hope Adalaide Marie und wurde ebenfalls adoptiert. Adoptierte oder eigene Kinder - Katherine macht da keinen großen Unterschied, sondern freut sich, Gutes tun zu können: "Ich würde auch gern weiter adoptieren, es gibt so viele vernachlässigte Kinder, die ein liebevolles Zuhause brauchen."

Die schöne Blonde hat aber nie ausgeschlossen, dass sie noch schwanger wird und im Juni 2016 verkündete das Paar die frohe Botschaft: Sie erwarten einen Sohn. Kurz vor Weihnachten 2016, am 20. Dezember, kam dann Joshua Bishop Kelley jr. zur Welt und komplettierte das Familienglück.

Starallüren als Karrierebremse?

Während sich Katherine Heigl im warmen Ruhm ihrer Wohltätigkeit sonnt, sehen nicht alle den Star in solch einem schmeichelhaften Licht: Der Erfolg schien Heigl schon seit geraumer Zeit zu Kopf zu steigen, sie gilt als launisch und fordernd, unkollegial und unhöflich. Darunter leiden Kollegen am Set ebenso wie Journalisten, die in Interviews auch schon mal Beleidigungen statt Antworten erhalten. Kein Wunder, dass die Rollenangebote dadurch spärlicher geworden sind, denn viele möchten einfach nicht mehr mit ihr zusammenarbeiten. Ihren Ausstieg aus "Grey's Anatomy" werten viele rückblickend als Fehlentscheidung. Ob Katherine Heigl die Zeichen der Zeit erkennt und etwas umgänglicher wird?

Die großen Erfolge sind Vergangenheit

Immerhin lieben ihre Fans Katherine Heigl für ihre romantischen Komödien wie "27 Dresses", "So spielt das Leben" oder "The Big Wedding". Es wäre ja schade, wenn die hübsche Blonde sich die Karriere selber versauen würde. In der Dramaserie "State of Affairs" zeigte sie immerhin mal eine andere Facette von sich – für alle, die mittlerweile von den Schmonzetten genervt sind. Doch wegen schlechter Quoten wurde die Show, die Katherine sogar mit produziert hat, nach nur einer Staffel wieder eingestellt.

Doch dass es dieser Tage etwas ruhiger um Katherine geworden ist und der ganz große Erfolg schon eine Weile zurückliegt, muss ja nicht unbedingt an ihren Zickereien und Allüren liegen. Vielleicht will sich Katherine einfach mehr auf ihre Familie konzentrieren, dort herrscht ja mit drei Kindern genug Trubel.

Ok I let Josh Kelley talk me back into another ride...but to be fair he did buy me my own bike with a seat that is far less abusive! So... my beautiful cousin Stephanie Michelet you’re right...it’s kinda great after all. And a pretty decent workout for this outta shape mama! My legs are jello!! #thoseheavenlydays may now include cycling! 😂🚴🏼‍♀️ PS. Anybody into weaving?! If so check out my cousin’s site #TheNourishBowl www.TheNourishBowl.com it’s badass!

Trippy...still playing around with my #enlightapp even though the vote was unanimous and you guys prefer the real pic to the Uber filtered ones. But I kinda like this. Reminds me of #Labyrinth the movie. You know the scene when David Bowie is dancing around with the glass orbs? That’s this weird moment for me. I used a lot, I mean A LOT of glass mercury globes in my Christmas decor and they just happened to make neat background props for my fun with photos experiments!

So when Josh Kelley and I had been dating a few months or so we took the first totally random #royaltenenbaums esq photo. Last night 12 years later we took a second one to commemorate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Yup, 10 years people! A few things have changed since then. I quit smoking, thank God! I’ve put on a few pounds. I don’t often do spontaneously weird things like take random bathtub photos in the middle of the night anymore. But what hasn’t changed, is that burning desire in me to be with this man. I gotta be honest. There have been moments where I didn’t think we’d make it. Where I wanted to take my pillow and smother him in the middle of the night. But I’ll tell you what. The more time I spend with this guy the more deeply I begin to understand that he is the best of me. When the whole world falls into disarray and nothing makes sense to me he is my shelter, my safe harbor. When self doubt and self loathing creep into my soul he is my champion, my number one fan. He has bolstered my spirits more times than I can count and he has led me through the darkness back into the light even more times than that. In quiet moments of reflection I feel an overwhelming gratitude that I married this man. This man with his giant, compassionate heart. His laugh so hard I cry sense of humor. His passion and positivity. His talent and drive. His broad chested, sexy “ I got this” attitude. His joyful, unconditionally loving parenting style. I don’t think there’s a person who’s met him that doesn’t love him and I get to call him mine. He makes me better in every way by loving me and believing in me and for never giving up on me. So here’s to 10, 20, 40 more years of us! I love you Josh Kelley more than you can probably imagine and then some! #10thweddinganniversary #WeAreStillTogether!

I’ve always felt that kids are inherently kind and compassionate and our jobs as parents is to direct that kindness into action! #quoteoftheday #thoseheavenlydays

I’d say Joshua Jr had a pretty successful 1st birthday. This picture kinda says it all! #FirstTasteOfCake #BirthdayBliss #thoseheavenlydays

21.12.2017

At 9am one year ago today I had Josh Kelley take this photo of me so I could remember how incredibly pregnant I was right before we left for the hospital and my 12pm scheduled cesarean. Joshua Jr had been in the breech position for over a month and had still not moved an inch a week before his due date so I made the decision to have a cesarean and was incredibly nervous and a little scared this time last year. I had never been hospitalized or had ever had any kind of surgery and had no idea what to expect. The second photo is right before I went in for surgery. Trying to look cool, calm and collected! They numbed me up, gave me some morphine and opened me up. My doctor struggled to get him out because he was really wedged in there and not quite ready to leave the womb. When she finally pulled him out at exactly 12:33pm he didn’t start breathing and they worked quickly to get oxygen in him and start his tiny lungs. Josh Kelley was standing with them when he finally took his first breath. That day, as I slowly came out of the morphine haze and clutched my tiny man to me I thanked the heavens for his breath, his life and for making me a mother three times over. As evening settled in Josh and I got cozy in my hospital room, found one of my all time favorites #SweetHomeAlabama on the tv and just relished in our perfect newborn son. He was so tiny and new, so fragile and tender. As I lay him down to sleep that first night in his very appropriate “welcome to the world” sleep sack I thought the moment would last forever. Yet here we are, a whole year later and it’s only the photos that remind me my brute of a boy was ever so new and small! Now he’s 26 ponds of rolling, tumbling, grasping, giggling, shouting, curious, jolly energy! He is everything and more than I could have hoped for and he has brought our family even more joy, love, laughter, abundance, bliss and yes, exhaustion and exasperation too! It’s been a hell of a year and I could not be more grateful for it or him! Happy Birthday to my little man! Maybe I can make this next year go a little slower!

Last nights Christmas party was lit...I had to hold back Josh Kelley hair and everything. I’m not sure #frosty #mickeymouse #ruldolph or the #nutcracker made it to work this morning. Sorry Christmas but these boys need a sick day!

18.12.2017

Last weeks matching christmas jammie tree trimming party ( that’s a bit of a mouthful, sorry, not sorry!) This tree may be up till February cause I love it so much...don’t judge. ☺️😏🎄💕

15.12.2017

I let Josh Kelley talk me into a bike ride with him and let me tell you, the couple that bikes together, stays together. At least until the end of the ride at which point, the wife talked into this ludicrous adventure, races into the house, grabs a bag of ice for her lady parts, calls a divorce lawyer and files for everything he’s got. So, yeah. I didn’t really like it. 🙄 But I’ll probably try it again anyway. Cause that’s how I roll. 😏
