Let's start at the beginning of the spat. Heigl and Rogen, you'll remember, starred opposite one another in the 2007 comedy Knocked Up; a dopey-guy-gets-hot-girl film about accidental pregnancy. It was Rogen's breakout performance and Heigl's first big movie gig. The two fell out when Heigl described the movie as 'a little bit sexist' in a Vanity Fair interview. 'It paints the women as shrews,' she said, 'and the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys'.
