Katherine Heigl: I don’t believe my own press
NEW YORK — Former ‘‘Grey’s Anatomy’’ star Katherine Heigl says she’s happy to make headlines, but stories about her in the media are often exaggerated.
Heigl’s comments in the past have been known to make waves in the entertainment world. She called the 2007 comedy ‘‘Knocked Up,’’ in which she starred, ‘‘a little sexist.’’ Later, she refused to seek an Emmy nomination after saying ‘‘Grey’s’’ writers didn’t give her enough award-worthy material.
Heigl says she doesn’t have ‘‘any major problem’’ with what’s written about her. But she adds that she tries to keep her perspective so she doesn’t believe her own press.

J.K. Rowling is leaving open the possibility. She told Oprah Winfrey in a taped interview airing Friday that she may someday write another novel in the popular series.

More than 400 million copies of the books about the boy wizard have been sold. Rowling said fame brought extreme pressures, including reporters searching her trash.
