Katherine Heigl Opens Up About Adopting Her Daughter

Last night's shocking season finale of Grey's Anatomy is all fans will be talking about today, or the rest of the summer, for that matter. But, there's one person who won't be in on the conversation: the show's former star Katherine Heigl.

While visiting The Late Show with David Letterman last night, Heigl, who left the hit series before her contract was up to begin raising her family, confessed, "I stopped watching (the show) in November when I went on family leave because I felt like I was missing the party, it was weird...I actually get a little bit jealous about Alex (Justin Chambers) sleeping with other women. It's really inappropriate."

It seems Chambers isn't the only one she's done some on-screen lusting for. In her new interview with Harper's Bazaar, Heigl, 32, talks about Ashton Kutcher, her costar in the upcoming crime comedy Killers. "(He) looks so hot with his shirt off," she says. 

Despite the eye candy, Heigl admits it wasn't an easy movie shoot for her. "It was crazy, because as my character was learning how to take care of a one-year-old, I was too," the actress told the magazine. "But as I was working with these gorgeous little triplets who play my child, I was feeling bad that I was spending more time with them than with my own kid. And that broke my heart."

Heigl talked more about her adopted special needs daughter Naleigh (whom she raises with husband Josh Kelley). "Her heart is 100 percent fine now,
 she says. "She has a scar. A lot of children don't find forever homes because they're on that special-needs list, even if it's because of something as simple as her mother smoked cigarettes for a month, not knowing she was pregnant. That's not so huge that you couldn't handle it."

While it's no shock that Heigl is opening up (the actress is notorious for speaking her mind, which has gotten her in trouble previously), she says she's now more aware of it. "I spent so many years just saying what I felt without thinking about the ramifications, without understanding that I have this opinion but not everyone might share that opinion and now they don't like me because of it," she says. "That was really awkward...I was really raised with the idea that it's important to be honest and to share your experiences, both disappointing and exhilarating. But sometimes I think the American public just wants to see my life as good fortune. They don't want to know about the day-to-day. It ruins the fantasy. It's lame to say that I'm a normal girl, but I think I am."
