ModernMom was delighted at the opportunity to interview the intelligent and beautiful Katherine Heigl! And the feeling was mutual. Katherine made sure to mention how ModernMom and mommy sites like ours are so important because we create a community of moms.
In fact, that's one of the reasons Katherine took on the role of Holly in her latest flick, "Life As We Know It." The film is about two single adults who become caregivers to an orphaned toddler when their mutual best friends die in an accident. Katherine believes this movie is so relatable to all parents who can watch it and say "hey, we're not alone."
And as for any critics who bash the movie, Katherine says, "I am proud of it. Yes, there's a formula. Yes, there's a happy ending. But it's a story that has moments that parents can relate to on some level or another. I love a happy ending. Life is hard enough. Not everything turns out the way we hope it would. But I love being a part of a movie that creates that - a happy ending. I can walk away feeling inspired and hopeful about relationships and motherhood."
Katherine even admits that "Life As We Know It" is the project she is most passionate about. "I sacrificed the early days of motherhood to do this movie. But I love the director and the character and story we told...It related to my life at the moment."
