Heigl looking to hang up her ‘Grey’s’ scrubs?

Just weeks after “Grey’s Anatomy” returned with new episodes, sources are saying Katherine Heigl is itching to hang up her scrubs. “She's working really long hours and is ready to move on,” a source close to the actress told Us Weekly.

Fifteen months ago, Heigl renegotiated her “Grey’s” contract. The net result from that: Because the negotiations went public and she got the raise she wanted from the show, Heigl proved she wasn't about to become an of-the-moment primetime star. Additionally, Heigl has had tremendous big-screen success with her leading roles in “Knocked Up” and “27 Dresses.”

“She’s a smart one. She saw what can happen with someone like Jennifer Aniston, who was crazy successful on TV, but can’t seem to carry a film, and she tested the waters early,” said a movie industry source.

Even so, Heigl might be locked into “Grey’s” a bit longer. "I don't think she'll be able to get out of it,” the US source said of Heigl’s contract.

Lewis told Elle magazine that like his “SATC” character, he once had a fling with an older woman. “When I was living in France, I had a couple-month affair with a woman who was around 50. I never let her see where I lived, because I was a little scared of her. We’d meet in the city and she’d take me out to her chateau, have this great dinner, make love. In the morning, I’d ride her horse while she cooked me breakfast. Then she’d drop me off in Paris,” Lewis told Elle.

Lewis said connects to the “SATC” idea that you sometimes have to overlook some flaws in relationships. “I was with a particularly malodorous girl once — beautiful but really stinky,” he told the magazine. “ She had every body odor. I remember thinking, ‘Your arms stink. Your breath stinks. Oh, God, even your hair stinks.’ I had no idea what to do. I remember asking a female friend, ‘What do I do? Slip her acidophilus when I cook for her?’”

    Live, in 3-D -

    Cyrus performs in a scene from her new movie "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert." Tickets for the film, like her concerts, were a hot seller. The film made $31 million at the box office in its opening weekend. "This is like better than front row," Cyrus said of the 3-D film. "You could reach out and feel like you can touch my hand you could see me right then. Right there, right in front of you, which is so fun."

It’s possible that Miley Cyrus’ sultry Vanity Fair photo shoot might have had an impact on her show’s ratings. The May 4 episode of  “Hannah Montana” saw a ratings drop of 24 percent over the previous new episode of the show, nearly two months earlier, according to Neilson.

Don’t expect the drop to be permanent, though, or really directly proportional to the pics. Overall ratings for the show have been in decline, and plans for a new record release this summer should give the show a boost.
