Katherine Heigl answered a personal question during a Facebook Q&A about her new show, "State Of Affairs" on Saturday.
When a fan asked Heigl for her thoughts concerning rumors that she is "very rude," the actress responded:
Yeah I've heard those too...honestly I don't think I am...nothing makes me more uncomfortable than confrontation or hurting someone's feelings and I would never, ever actively do so on purpose. Of course just like any human being I've made mistakes and unwittingly or carelessly spoken or acted but I always try to make any wrong right. That doesn't mean I won't stand up for myself by drawing boundaries and asking to be treated kindly and respectfully but I don't do that with any rude or unkind intentions just with the same strength and honesty I think every one of us is entitled to.
This isn't the first time Heigl has addressed these rumors. When asked a similar question in a press event for "State Of Affairs," the 35-year-old said:
"I can only say that I certainly don't see myself as being difficult. I would never intend to be difficult. I don't think my mother sees herself as being difficult. I think it's important to everybody to conduct themselves professionally and respectfully and kindly. If I have ever disappointed somebody, it was not intentional."
Over the years, Heigl has come under fire for allegedly being difficult to work with. Most recently, "Grey's Anatomy" creator, producer and writer Shonda Rhimes took a shot at Heigl in a profile by the Hollywood Reporter. While discussing production on "Scandal," the showrunner said, "There are no Heigls in this situation." Rhimes later added, "I don't put up with bullshit or nasty people. I don't have time for it."
