One of my friends went to opening night of One for the Money with Katherine Heigl. We have both read the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich, but I’m just not brave enough to see a movie that wasn’t even previewed for critics. In honor of my friend, here are some photos I took of Katherine Heigl in early 2000.
I was a big fan of the first season of Roswell, the television series about teenage space aliens in New Mexico. I wasn’t one of the viewers who mailed tabasco sauce to the WB network, a unique campaign to save the show from cancellation. Still, I was really pleased when it got picked up for a second season. My joy turned to anguish when the show changed directions in season two, and I stopped watching. I still break out the first season on DVD every now and again, when I need a little dose of teenage romance. Given the choice between Roswell and the Twilight films, I’ll take Roswell every time! Roswell added a good dose of humor to the teenage angst and featured an appealing group of young actors.
Katherine Heigl played one of the alien teens, and I went to Macy’s to get her autograph at a guest appearance. She was relaxed and friendly, and I was impressed with the way she interacted with fans. Two girls brought the Roswell dolls they’d made from Barbies to show her, and she was delighted with them. Not only did I get my Roswell book autographed, I got a free tee shirt and denim bag.
I still find Heigl an appealing actress, but I sure hope she starts finding some better scripts!
I’m sure my friend will give us her impressions of Katherine Heigl’s latest film in the comments here. (How’s that for pressure?!)
