After six seasons as Dr. Izzie Stevens on Grey's Anatomy, Katherine Heigl has finally confirmed that she's checked out of Seattle Grace Hospital for good. While the outspoken actress says she's done with the small screen for now, she will be coming soon (and often!) to a theater near you. And she'll be joined by some pretty dreamy leading men. In June, the actress will star opposite Ashton Kutcher as a newlywed who uncovers her husband's shady past in Killers, later this year she and Josh Duhamel play a pair of hapless singles who find themselves raising a baby in Life As We Know It, and it's been reported she has five more films in the works. Dubbed the "sexiest, smartest, sassiest actress out there" by her Ugly Truth co-star Gerard Butler, Heigl proved that she's got guts earlier this month when the strap of her Donna Karan dress broke as she took the stage to receive an award in Las Vegas. Instead of making a quick exit, she enlisted the help of Access Hollywood host Billy Bush to keep her frayed frock in place and launched into her acceptance speech. "I wasn't going to stop the show and make everyone wait while somebody tries to find a way to pin it," she told Entertainment Weekly. "I decided to just go for it."
