Katherine Heigl & Josh Duhamel Hated Being Single

Katherine Heigl Josh Duhamel on the set of Life As We Know It

The stars of the upcoming movie, Life As We Know It, are glad to be out of the dating pool.

Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel may play single friends forced to raise a baby together in the new romantic comedy, Life As We Know It, but, in their real lives, the two actors are happy to be married and not have to deal with the dating scene anymore.

At a recent press conference in New York, Katherine, 31, told reporters that prior to marrying singer Josh Kelley three years ago, she went on a string of really bad dates, reports People Magazine, including one with her personal trainer.

"I was, like, 20 lbs. heavier and trying real hard to work it off at the gym and my trainer asked me out," said the actress. "He took me to Sizzler and gave me his head shot and asked me if I could get him in my agency. I knew it wasn't the extra 20 lbs. that turned him on!" Katherine Heigl Is "Not Very Good At Being A Wife"

Not to be out done, 37-year-old Josh, who is married to singer Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, revealed that, as a single man, he took his time to get to know a woman before asking her out on a date:

"I've had plenty of awkward moments, but I've always been in relationships for a long time," he said. "Dating always scared the crap out of me. For that reason, I couldn't really date."

"I had to make very sure that I wanted to date this person. I would do a complete recon. So, I made sure that I wanted to be with them before I actually started dating," he added. "You know, when you really feel it, you just don't want to say, 'Well, I might like her, or I guess I'll date her.'" (Hmmm...we wonder how well he got to know exotic dancer Nicole Forrester before he allegedly cheated on Fergie with her in 2009?) Did Josh Duhamel Knock Up That Stripper?

"So, you've never met anybody at a bar and went out on a dinner date the next night and had a terrible time? That never happened to you?" asked Katherine.

"Well," Josh admitted, "I'm sure it did."

Don’t worry, Katherine and Josh; we may not be famous movie stars, but it’s happened to us too.
