I love me some honest celebrities.

"Grey's Anatomy" doc Katherine Heigl had a huge hit with the movie "Knocked Up," but the Emmy-winning actress now knocks the movie as "a little sexist," Vanity Fair reports.

"It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys," she says. "It was hard for me to love the movie.

Somehow I still haven't seen the damn movie, but I just thought this was interesting.

Check out Feministing for an active commentary on this - everything from yes the movie was all misogyny to hell no I identified with that woman!

of course--is there an "accurate" portrayal of women in mainstream movies EVER? what i will say for knocked up is that it seemed to acknowledge the differences that exist between men and women, and not necessarily paint feminine attributes as worse than masculine ones. like, yeah women can be some crazy bitches and men can be real douchebags but hopefully we can all just get along...
