Katherine Heigl has just had about enough of her reputation as being "rude" and difficult to work with. The 35-year-old actress is now ready to put these negative claims behind her, which she adamantly denies anyway.

Heigl simply said she is "not" rude, and is always "professional"

While being interviewed for 'The Meredith Vieira Show,' airing Monday (Nov 24th), Heigl was quizzed about recently taking part in a Facebook Q&A when a fan asked her to address the ongoing "rumours that you're very rude."

"I think I said, 'Of course, I've heard that too and I'm not," she said. "And you know what, I've been saying 'I don't think I am,' but I'm going to be really honest right now...I'm not."

"I know I'm not," she continued. "I don't have to think about it. I'm not a rude person. I'm not an unkind or mean person. I would never go out of my way or consciously try to hurt anyone's feelings or make them feel bad or uncomfortable or not be...professional."

These rumours reached tipping point when Shonda Rhimes, who created 'Grey's Anatomy,' was interviewed about working on the set of 'Scandal,' and said, "There are no Heigls in this situation. I don't put up with bulls--t or nasty people. I don't have time for it."

But Heigl completely denies these accusations, and claims she has the right to disagree with certain aspects of being an actress if it makes her feel uneasy.

"I like my job," she added. "I will continue to stand up for myself and I'm never going to stop standing up for my right to be heard, my right to be treated respectfully and professionally in return, my right to draw boundaries. I am a strong woman and I'm not going to apologize for that and I'm not going to on behalf of my daughters-and I'm not going to on behalf of all of you sitting in the audience."

The 'State of Affairs' actress concluded: "We should all have the basic human right to say, 'Hey, no, I'm sorry, I'm not comfortable with that. I don't like that. This is not OK for me,' without it making me...I can't say the word. A B-word."
