Katy Perry Was Almost Cast in What Best Picture Nominee?

Annie Leibovitz, Vanity Fair

Those of you who can't get enough of Katy Perry (and let's be honest, who can't?), the ultra-popular singing sensation was supposed to have her big breakout role in an Oscar nominated film. But the bubble gum pop star had to backout due to a scheduling conflict.

Vulture reports that according to Mrs. Miss Perry, she was going to have a role in last year's critically acclaimed movie 'The Help,' but was unable to due to her singing career.

"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. And 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."

Shame. Now we know why Disney had this early poster of 'The Help' recalled before the movie's release.
