When asked if she'd be interested in making more movies, Perry replied, "I would love to. 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 knew the film would be big, and felt terrible about passing on the role.

"I knew it was going to be an important film," she continued. "Not that I need to do drama first, but I do want to do something that makes a strong impression. You don't really get off the hook being a musician first... I feel like the stakes are really high."

Could you imagine Perry sharing the screen in The Help?
