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.

The actress was speaking in New York at the world premiere of her latest dramedy, ‘Life as We Know It,’ which opens nationwide next week.
