Katy Perry claims she was almost cast in 'The Help'

Can you imagine pop star Katy Perry co-starring in The Help? According to the “I Kissed a Girl” singer it almost happened. In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Perry says scheduling conflicts got in the way of her acting in the Oscar winning drama. Huffington Post reports:

The one that got away? In a new interview with Teen Vogue pop superstar Katy Perry revealed that she was almost cast in “The Help.”

“There was a time when I was going to be involved in ‘The Help’ — 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,” Perry told the magazine. “I was upset about that; 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.”

Perry has already made some impression on the big screen with her voice. The singer voiced Smurfette in last summer’s reboot of “The Smurfs.” She also appeared on episodes of “How I Met Your Mother” and “Raising Hope.”
