Katherine Heigl is known by some for being “difficult” to work with, and a photo she posted on Instagram recently shows what the lengths her crew might go to please her. The photo shows Heigl covered only by a blanket and surrounded by several shirtless men.
“Nope I haven’t gone into the adult film business… just having a little fun w/ my amazingly supportive crew who shed their shirts in solidarity!! Love you all!! @carnojoe @tallmanmark,” wrote Heigl on the photo she posted a week ago on Instagram on. The crew voluntarily stripped down to show support for Heigl as she shot a particularly steamy scene from her new show State of Affairs. One of the men in the photo was Heigl’s co-star Mark Tallman.
State of Affairs is Heigl’s first TV series since she left the highly popular Grey’s Anatomy in 2010. Her TV role is that of Charleston Tucker, a CIA analyst working for the president on matters of international security. Heigl’s show premieres this November 17 on NBC.

Heigl is also set to star in the upcoming black comedy Home Sweet Hell opposite Patrick Wilson. In the film, Heigl plays the Stepford Wife-type spouse of Wilson’s character, who follows everything that his wife says. When Wilson’s character ends up being blackmailed by his employee-turned-lover, played by Jordana Brewster, Heigl’s character takes the matter into her own hands and decides to kill her.
Home Sweet Hell plays off Heigl’s physical attributes as well. The 35-year-old actress strips to her underwear as the murderous housewife, Mona Champagne. Mona doesn’t want to get blood on herself, so she decides to wear only her underwear before killing her husband’s lover. Directed by Anthony Burns, Home Sweet Hell is a dark comedy that also stars Kevin McKidd, Jim Belushi, A.J. Buckley and Bryce Johnson.
