  • Katherine Heigl on cheating, one-night stands and being 20lbs bigger in Hollywood

    Katherine Heigl isn’t one to shy away from the image of being an opinionated celebrity.

    In the January issue of Cosmopolitan UK, Heigl opens up about fidelity, her new film “New Year’s Eve,” what it’s like to be a more voluptuous woman in Hollywood and motherhood.

    One of her most candid confessions is about infidelity and how she would handle it in her own marriage.

    “I’ve been debating this lately. Josh and I always said that cheating would be a deal breaker; there is no second chance. But I’ve seen friends and acquaintances go through it and they’ve found a way back to the relationship, and a way to forgive each other. And as much as I would kill him if he cheated because it would destroy me, I have started to question whether, if a mistake were to be made and it was a one-time thing, I would forgive him. Because look at the life we’ve built together. We have history, we have a child…But at the same time, it would be really hard to ever fully trust that person again.”

    She also opened up about one-night stands and her feelings on them.

    “I don’t like them,” she says. “I’ve never met a single woman who has ever walked away from a one-night stand and been like ‘That was awesome! Oh, my god! Best ever!’”

    Heigl also said she struggled to accept her body the way it is when she first arrived in Hollywood.

    “I was 20lbs heavier and wanted to look like those girls with fantastically beautiful bodies like Jennifer Aniston or Jessica Alba, but I just couldn’t lose the weight. It’s only now that I realise how hard those girls work for their bodies, and what level of commitment they make to do that. I’m too lazy and I like food and I like my free time too much to spend it working out!”

    On adopting her daughter Naleigh from South Korea:

    “I just knew I was going to do it. I addressed it with Josh before we were even engaged. He’s such an amicable, good guy and he was like, ‘Yeah sure, Why not?’ So, after we’d been married for about two years, we started the process.”

    On bonding with Naleigh:

    “The first few days we were shell-shocked and terrified of messing up. I felt a need to protect her – that’s just a mothers instinct – but I was also intimidated by her, and nervous that she wouldn’t love me. She’d just flown across the world and we were speaking a different language, we were in a different time zone, we looked different…plus she’d been in a really loving, wonderful foster home. For the first three weeks, we couldn’t get her to giggle. I was like, ‘Oh no, she hates us’.”

    The full interview appears in the January issue of Cosmopolitan UK, on sale Dec. 8.
