Katherine Heigl on Returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’: “I’m down with it if they want me to”

Katherine-Heigl-One-for-the-MoneySince leaving Grey’s Anatomy two years ago, Katherine Heigl has certainly kept busy with her film career. However, on Monday’s installment on daytime talk show The View, the 33-year-old actress admitted to missing being a part of ABC’s hit medical drama.

“I miss my friends,” Heigl told co-host Barbara Walters. “It was a great work environment in that we all got along really well, and it becomes a family. I spent six years with these people every day. We grew up in a way.”

Heigl left Grey’s Anatomy in January 2010 in order to focus on her family and her budding film career. Since then, she’s starred in box-office hits like New Year’s Eve and Killers, and her latest, action comedy One for the Money, arrives in theaters this Friday, January 27. Still, she says she would be opening to reprising her role of Dr. Izzie Stevens on Grey’s, which is currently in the middle of its eighth season. 

“I want them to know that I’m down with it if they want me to, but I completely understand if it doesn’t necessarily work into (the story),” she continued. “They’ve got a lot of storylines going on there.”
