Katherine Heigl

I Need My Money

Cuz I Pissed Off Hollywood

Katherine Heigl's hit hard times ... telling us she needs to hang onto every penny and is in NO position to donate cash to finish her new movie.

Here's the thing ... Hollywood hasn't exactly been beating down Katherine's door since she foolishly left "Grey's Anatomy" and trash talked Judd Apatow's movie -- she even admits it in this clip.

So now she's counting on a crowd funding campaign to raise $150,000 to complete her indie film "Jenny's Wedding" -- and makes it clear she won't be pitching in because she just ain't got it like that anymore.

Katherine hints about a menage a trois in the movie. We think she's joking, but that would definitely raise a buck or two.

When you make Shannen Doherty look like a pleasant, reasonable, dignified human being, something has gone horribly wrong.

This is what happend when you are over confident about your talent. Katherine thought she was the next meryl streep.

No....That's what happens when you act in an unprofessional manner and bad mouth the very people who could have helped you..maybe she will learn an important lesson.

She pulled a David Caruso but I doubt there's a CSI spinoff to bail her out anytime soon

HHow about a public apology(a sincere one)for the ignorant comments about the t.v. show that made u famous enough that people wanted to put you in movies only for u2bash both the show AND a movie that was a total blockbuster.U were an idiot.U really thought ANY1(EXCEPT THAT MUTUAL COMMERCIAL)was gonna want to hire u?By opening the mouth u went from America's sweetheart who was going to become a HUGE movie star to losing99%of your fanbase&NO1wants2hire u because ur known as difficult but more important u trash ur own work which insults the other actors,directors,producers etc.U could have said"I take these jobs for the money&don't care about the scripts I just want a fat paycheck"&would b in the se position u r now.

Katherine:
Some 101 marketing tips:
Ditch the sunglasses when soliciting funds.
Know where you stand re amount of cash raised. Don't act as though staying on top of the fundraising process is your flunky's job.
Convey passion in the project.
Prove to the public why you remain a good investment.
Drop the air of entitlement.
Don't expect that the public is so dazzled by your resume that they're going to crack open their wallets for the asking.
Learn humility.
$150,000 wouldn't keep a film crew in coffee and
donuts for a month. Be clear about where funds are being allocated (if you even know).
And finally, treat the public like valuable economic partners , not piggybanks. There's a difference.

On what planet does Kathryn Heigl think that the general public is just dying to throw money at a film so she can make more money $$$ ??? How ignorant can this girl be??? Most people are just trying to get by and certainly not in the likes of her lavish lifestyle !!!! How far outta touch could she possibly be??? WAKE UP

Maybe she can partner up win Mel Gibson or Charlie Sheen. There is money laying around if you just know where to look. Always use OPM (other people's money). I've never been that is this chick but her brains on this make perfect sense.
