"She can cost you time every single day of shooting," one insider, who worked with her on the film "Life as We Know it," told The Hollywood Reporter. "Wardrobe issues, not getting out of the trailer, questioning the script every single day."

The 34-year-old actress was reportedly paid $12 million for the film. 

Coming to the actress's defense is "Life as We Know It" director Greg Berlanti, who told the magazine he would work with the actress again "in a heartbeat." According to The Hollywood Reporter, TV network executives passed up the actress for a lead role in a potential new series because of her sullied reputation. 

"On many levels, she would have been perfect for the role, but all of us said, 'She's not worth it,'" the insider said.

The report continues by criticizing the actress's mother and manager, Nancy, who reportedly has a worse reputation. 

"I have never experienced anything like Nancy Heigl," said the source, according to Us Weekly. "It's about the mouth. 'F--- you. You are a f---ing liar.' Whatever you'd say, you were an idiot. The call would be, 'This is the worst craft service we've ever had! There's nothing to eat! This is the worst wardrobe!' You knew that every day, you were going to get slammed. The frustrating part is [Heigl] is incredibly talented and smart."

"This is a fear-dominated industry," Heigl previously told Vanity Fair. "And my mother refuses to be intimidated by that. This is all a game of chicken and my mother is really good at chicken."

Heigl is also known for publicly slamming projects that she has previous been involved in. According to E! News, the actress went on record calling Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" a sexist film. The actress who is best known for he role in ABC's hit drama "Grey's Anatomy" reportedly said the show's writing was not good enough. Heigl's character was nixed from the show in its sixth season.
