Katherine Heigl Now Says She'll Stay If 'Grey's Anatomy' Wants Her

Addressing rumors that Dr. Izzie Stevens' days on the show are numbered, Katherine Heigl now says she'll be happy to stay with 'Grey's Anatomy' if the show wants her.

"I was assuming that at one point and I got a lot of shrugged shoulders and shakes of the head, so I don't know if that's a yes or a no. No one will tell me and I don't know how this is going to go," Heigl said at the medical drama's 100th episode party.

"I don't know if I live or die. I don't know how Izzie fares. I'm there if Izzie remains part of the show," Heigl told reporters, describing the set as "one of my favorite places to be."

On the medical drama, Izzie has been diagnosed with metastatic melanoma that has spread to her brain, which has given her a five percent chance of survival.

There has been widespread speculation that the 'Knocked Up' actress has asked to leave the show to focus on a film career but Heigl said that wasn't the case: "I'm more than happy to make that compromise (to work on movies in the off-season)."

"I don't know if I want to continue for five years working 12 months a year, but I can take at least another year or two. As my agent likes to say, 'High-class problems.'"

Show and series creator Shonda Rhimes declined to comment on what will happen to Izzie, but she did hint about what the expect in the 100th episode on May 7.

"The only thing I'll tell you about the 100th is that it takes place on Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek's (Patrick Dempsey) wedding day," Rhimes said. "That's big and that's all I'm going to say."
