Katy Perry Almost Appeared in the Oscar-Nominated Film 'The Help'
The pop star reveals that she had been tapped for a "small part" in the period drama before schedule conflicts got in the way.
Katy Perry has sold millions of records, traveled the globe on a sold-out tour and voiced a beloved character in a surprise animated blockbuster. Still, the pop superstar has one major gig that got away.
"There was a time when I was going to be involved in The Help," Perry said in a new interview with Teen Vogue. "Just a small part, I wasn't going to be Emma Stone or anything, but I couldn't because the shooting schedule conflicted with the release of my record."
"I was upset about that," she continued. "I knew it was going to be an important film. Not that I need to do drama first, but I do want to do something that makes a strong impression."
With Perry's 3D concert pic Part of Me on schedule to hit theaters on July 5, acting seems a logical next step for the pop tart's expanding resume. Just last week, Perry nabbed the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award for Favorite Voice From an Animated Movie for her role as Smurfette in Sony's The Smurfs.
