Katherine Heigl Explains Her Departure From ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Whether you could care less about Katherine Heigl leaving Grey’s Anatomy or you thought she owed some closure to her character and storyline it doesn’t matter to Heigl.

“I am done,” she declares in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. “I know I’m disappointing the fans,” she says. “I just had to make a choice. I hope I made the right one.”

While some of us debate her future career in films the actress insists it was adopting Naleigh that made the actress want out of her 17 hour days, not her film career.  “I started a family and it changed everything for me,” she says. “It changed my desire to work full-time.”

I can respect that, but I still don’t see why that means she can’t appear in the season finale to at least die off. The newly free Heigl headed to Littlle Dom’s in Los Feliz, CA for lunch with a friend on March 15, 2010.
