Katy Perry has already entered the big screen world, as the voice of Smurfette in the live action film, "The Smurfs," last year, but she revealed to Teen Vogue she very nearly had a part in an Oscar-nominated production.

"There was a time when I was going to be involved in 'The Help'" Katy told Teen Vogue, in an interview for the magazine's new issue.

The singer added it was, "just a small part," adding, "I wasn't going to be Emma Stone or anything."

Unfortunately for the blueberry-haired pop star, her day job kept her out of the project.

"I couldn't because the shooting schedule conflicted with the release of my record," she said. "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."

In related Katy news, her film, "Part of Me 3-D" hits theaters on July 5.
