Katherine Heigl Talks Utah Family Farm and New Movie ‘The Nut Job’


Katherine Heigl phoned into On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk her latest movie, The Nut Job, and moving to Utah with her family.

The 35-year-old actress — who recently joined social media account WhoSay — has been sharing pics of her adventures in Utah, including her adorable dog Gertrude who moonwalks for food!

“It’s so funny, she like crosses her two little front feet like such a princess, like such a lady,” Katherine laughs of her dog.

And she has more animals than just little Gertrude. “We have a lot. She’s one of seven dogs and it’s a great place for them, we have 25 acres … and now we have nine horses, and 10 chickens and two pygmy goats and two mini horses and two donkeys.”

Another new animal Katherine’s gotten to know recently is a squirrel, which she plays in new animated flick The Nut Job.

“I’m really excited about it because it’s the first time I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of an animated movie,” Katherine reveals. “And with two small children all we do every night, especially in Utah because there’s not a lot to do, is watch animted movies with our daughters. Like, it’s our family time so I thought, ‘This is going to be great!’ I can actually sit down with my kids and watch one of mine … that was a big reason why I wanted to [do the film].”
