Born on November 24th 1978, in Washington DC, Heigl's family moved to New Canaan, Connecticut soon after. The youngest member of her family, Heigl is of an Irish and German decent. She lost her brother due to brain injuries caused by a car accident in 1986. When the doctors pronounced her brother brain dead, the Heigl family made the generous but difficult decision to donate her brother's organs. This proved to be a turning point in young Heigl's life and she has since then used her celebrity status to promote the importance of organ donation.

"I'm grateful people think I'm beautiful or think I'm sexy, and I suppose it's better than the alternative, but I do try to fight it a bit so it's not all people see me as. And I'd love to one day be in a position where I could choose a role to showcase my creativity versus just my bra size."
