THE BIG WEDDING
KATHERINE HEIGL (Lyla) became a box-office sensation starring first in Judd Apatow's smash hit comedy, Knocked Up, followed by a starring turn with Ed Burns and James Marsden in the romantic comedy, 27 Dresses, and then opposite Gerard Butler in the romantic comedy The Ugly Truth, which she also executive produced. These earned Heigl "Female Star of the Year" honors at the 2010 ShoWest Awards.
Heigl is one of an all-star cast, including Pierce Brosnan, Will Arnett and Brendan Fraser, lending their voices to the upcoming animated comedy feature The Nut Job. Later this Spring, Heigl will film the drama A Moment to Remember for director Ben Lewin (The Sessions).
Heigl's film credits include One for the Money, New Year's Eve, Life As We Know It, Killers and The Ringer. Her first feature film leading role was in Touchstone Pictures' My Father the Hero, starring opposite Gerard Depardieu.
On television, for six seasons, Heigl portrayed 'Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens,' the small-town girl constantly battling for respect amongst her peers, on ABC's critically acclaimed drama "Grey's Anatomy." In 2007, Heigl earned a Primetime Emmy Award and a Golden Globe nomination for her performance.
In May of 2009, Katherine Heigl and her mother Nancy launched the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation in honor of her late older brother. The Heigls are working directly to address the pet population crises in Los Angeles and across the country. The Foundation actively funds and supports free spay/neuter programs, pet adoption programs, and funds small dog transport from local kill shelters to both no kill shelters and rescues facilities throughout the country.
In November 2012, Katherine Heigl launched Just One, a line of specially designed pet products, for which a portion of each sale will support animal welfare efforts and programs.
