Critics hate Katherine Heigl’s new movie and Internet commenters hate her attitude—and it turns out her colleagues aren’t too happy with her either, the Los Angeles Times reports. Heigl’s Knocked Up director and co-star are still pissed she implied the film was sexist back in 2007, and they took the opportunity to slam her as a hypocrite on Howard Stern's radio show.

After all, The Ugly Truth “looks like it really puts women on a pedestal in a beautiful way,” Seth Rogen said. Added Judd Apatow, “I hear there’s a scene where she’s wearing underwear with a vibrator in it, so I’d have to see if that was uplifting for women.” But, Rogen concluded, “It’s not like we’re the only people she said some batshit crazy things about. That’s kind of her bag now.” (More Katherine Heigl stories.)
