“The Help” was definitely one of my favorite movies of 2011, if not of all time. But who knew Katy Perry was supposed to be among the film’s cast?
The singer recently revealed in an interview with THR she indeed almost appeared in the award-winning movie:
“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.”
Though I’m a Katy Perry fan, I think her star power may have taken away from the central theme of the movie, regardless of whether it was a small role or not.
