Heigl Gives Away Awards Ceremony Handouts

Actress KATHERINE HEIGL gives away the freebies she picks up at awards shows to friends and family, because she feels guilty about taking home bulging gift bags. The Knocked Up star admits she isn't comfortable with accepting handouts when she's wealthy - and could easily afford all the gifts she takes home. She says, "There comes a point of gluttony that I can't accept. When that happens, I feel like I have to clean out and give stuff to my sister, mom and friends." Heigl isn't the only celebrity sparking a backlash against the freebies handed out at awards shows - Edward Norton is campaigning to get gift baskets banned at leading awards ceremonies, and Hilary Swank recently expressed her dislike of the practice. Due to new California tax laws, celebrities who claim gift bags at awards shows must now pay tax on the jewellery, clothing items, electronics and vouchers they take home.

If Katherine feels that way about Hollywood, get a real job, like all of us hard working Americans that really have to work for a living. As we struggle every day to pay for gas, keep our jobs and pay bills, poor pathetic Katherine seems to be complaining about every thing these days, who really cares? Go get a real job where you earn about $50K a year and you won't have time to cry about your terrible scripts and "Izzy", and shut up.
