October 1, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Katherine Heigl says she's happy to make headlines, but stories about her in the media are often exaggerated.The "Grey's Anatomy" star doesn't have "any major problem" with what's written about her, but says she tries to keep her perspective so she doesn't believe her own press.

Heigl's comments in the past have been known to make waves in the entertainment world.

In 2007, she called "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's latest dramedy, "Life as We Know It,"opens nationwide next week.
