American actress Katherine Heigl shines in red on the cover page of entertainment magazine Cosmopolitan UK for the January 2012 issue. Katherine Heigl, 33, tells us what’s made her the strong, successful woman she is today and lets slip some love rules along the way.
On one night stands: “I don’t like them. I’ve never met a single woman who has ever walked away from a one-night stand and been like, ‘That was awesome! Oh, my god! Best ever!’”
On forgiving her husband if he had an affair: “I’ve been debating this lately. Josh and I always said that cheating would be a deal breaker; there is no second chance. But I’ve seen friends and acquaintances go through it and they’ve found a way back to the relationship, and a way to forgive each other. And as much as I would kill him if he cheated because it would destroy me, I have started to question whether, if a mistake were to be made and it was a one-time thing, I would forgive him. Because look at the life we’ve built together. We have history, we have a child…But at the same time, it would be really hard to ever fully trust that person again.”
On not being a stereotypical Hollywood actress: “Hollywood likes to label everyone so you’re easier to identify. I didn’t mind it; I got mouthy, the way a child does when you celebrate them for something. The mouthier I got, the more I’d be celebrated. I was like, ‘You think that’s outspoken? How about this…’ Then it bit me in the hand.”
