Rom-Com Queen Katherine Heigl says marriage is strong

22 November 2011

Rom-Com queen Katherine Heigl who is known for roles in Knocked Up, The Ugly Truth, 27 Dresses and Life as We Know It has suggested that her and Josh Kelley's marriage has lasted because they both have successful careers.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, the Killers actress explained that her film career and Kelley's music career allow them to stay on equal footing in the marriage.

"It's not easy, but it is ideal if we both have our own thing, our own passions, our own focus on our careers, we can kind of come back to each other and there's this fire there.

We're happy because we have these great careers that we're happy with. That happiness is infectious - it sort of bleeds into everything."

While Kelley joked "There are some points of it when it actually can be a little bit easier because if I was home for longer than three or four weeks at a time, I don't think she could put up with me honestly. I think I'd be out of here."

Heigl and Kelley got married in 2007 after dating for a year. The pair have an adopted daughter Naleigh who is originally from South Korea.

She'll next be seen in Gerry Marshall's New Year's Eve, which opens on December 8, she's also completed work on Julie Anne Robinson's One for the Money which also stars John Leguizamo.
