Katherine Marie Heigl is an American Emmy-winning and Golden Globe-nominated actress best known for her roles in Roswell, Grey’s Anatomy, Knocked Up and 27 Dresses.
When Heigl was nine, an aunt visiting the family decided to take a number of photographs of her. After returning to her home in New York, the aunt sent the photos to a number of modeling agencies, with the permission of Heigl’s parents. Within a few weeks, Heigl was signed as a child model and it all flew from there.
Heigl was once in a relationship with Roswell costar Jason Behr but that relationship ended around the time the series ended. In June 2006, she became engaged to singer Josh Kelley, whom she met on the set of his music video for “Only You.” They were married on December 23, 2007 in Park City, Utah. For their honeymoon they escaped to the plush Esperanza resort in Cabo San Lucas. In December 2007, Heigl and Kelley moved into a new home in Los Feliz, California.
At the end of 2007, Barbara Walters named Heigl one of the “The 11 Most Fascinating People of 2007 ” on an ABC/DEF program of that title. Heigl questioned her inclusion on the list, saying that in fact she is actually “quite boring…..not, just kidding, but really”.
