Katy Perry has revealed she almost landed a small role in The Help but her recording schedule forced her to turn it down.
The “Part of Me” singer, who made her acting debut on How I Met Your Mother last year, tells Teen Vogue that she was in talks for a part in the hit film.
She says, “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.
“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.”
Katy Perry refuses to speculate on what role she may have been offered or whether it was played by someone else in the film.
