Heigl: I don’t trust my gut

Katherine Heigl confesses she doesn’t buy into her intuitive feelings often.

The Nut Job actress is currently filming her new television show State of Affairs, which centres on fictional persona Charlie Tucker, a CIA agent who provides daily espionage briefs to the American president.

Katherine enjoyed playing her lead character in the drama because she was able to express a unique set of emotions.

“She really trusts her gut instinct about things, her intuition. I’m really bad at that,” the actress admitted to Extra.

This is Katherine’s first major small screen outing since leaving hit medical drama Grey’s Anatomy in 2010.

She developed a reputation for being challenging to work with after starring in a string of less successful movies like 2013 romcom The Big Wedding.

And Katherine says she was blindsided by chatter concerning her alleged diva behaviour on set.

“I just didn’t see it coming,” she shared. “I guess I thought, Oh I paid my dues and I don’t have to worry so much about anything anymore. But that’s just not the reality for any actor or actress. It’s an up and down career for everybody.”

Variety previously reported Katherine came under fire back into 2008 after she withdrew herself from contending for an Emmy for her role as Dr. Izzie Stevens in Grey’s Anatomy.

“I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the academy organisation, I withdrew my name from contention,” she said in part at the time.

Katherine also made headlines after criticising Judd Apatow’s 2007 comedy Knocked Up, calling it “sexist”.

State of Affairs premieres in the USA on November 17.
