Lonely starlet Katherine Heigl

September 11th, 2010

Katherine Heigl had no friends when she moved to Hollywood.

The 'Life As We Know It' actress - who has 20-month-old daughter Naleigh with husband Josh Kelley - lived with her mother Nancy until she was 22 and admits she had a lonely life.

She said: "My mum was my roommate and only friend for a log time because it's hard to meet people in Hollywood.

"I didn't move out until I was 22 and suddenly I was living on my own, which was terrifying."

Despite their separation, the 31-year-old beauty insists she is as close to her mother as ever.

She added: "She's been my number one supporter and I've been hers. She's the one person who's respect I hope to earn."

Katherine - who is managed by her mother - recently admitted nothing she does in her films shocks her mom.

Speaking about her film 'The Ugly Truth' - which she starred in with Gerard Butler - she said: "The language is wild, but she's heard a lot worse from me. Don't tell her I said this, but she can dish out those raunchy words pretty well herself.

"She's never there when we film that stuff, and it's not just because she doesn't want to worry me.

"You can imagine it would make Gerard Butler pretty uncomfortable if he was in bed with me while my mother was watching. If it didn't, it would be weird and kinky."
