Katherine Heigl flashed a smile on her way into the wrap party for The Ugly Truth in LA last night. While that movie doesn't sound like much of a departure for Katherine, who is a romantic comedy veteran at this point, her next project is a weighty one. The actress will star in and produce the adaptation of Carolyn Jessop's memoir Escape. Jessop's story and testimony played a big part in the recent polygamist sect scandal and the book is about her time on Warren Jeffs' compound. It's a far cry from what we've seen from Katherine so far, but considering she was raised Mormon the topic must hit close to home. Meanwhile, Heigl doesn't want acclaim for this season of Grey's Anatomy — she officially pulled her name out of the running for an Emmy.
