Katherine Heigl has addressed speculation that she and her mother are "difficult to work with" at NBC's Television Critics Association summer press tour presentation on Sunday (July 13).
While promoting her new series State of Affairs, the actress was asked by a reporter if she and her mother, who works as an executive producer, are hard to work with.
According to Variety, Heigl replied: "I certainly don’t see myself as being difficult. I would never intend to be difficult. I don’t think my mother sees herself as being difficult.
"I think it’s important to everybody to conduct themselves professionally and respectfully and kindly, so if I’ve ever disappointed somebody, it was never intentional."
In State of Affairs, due to air on NBC in November, Heigl plays a highly-ranked CIA analyst whose personal life is spinning out of control.
Both Heigl and her mother will serve as executive producers on the drama.
Nancy said of their working relationship: "[Katherine and I] work as a partnership. I am her mother for sure, so of course I have her best interests, but I'm really learning. But it's been fun and it's been interesting. I'm really new to it."
