Katy Perry wants to be a movie star now, because she’s so pretty

Katy Perry

I knew this day was inevitable — Katy Perry has been bitten by the acting bug and decided that she’s got the talent and wherewithal to be an actress, possibly even a “serious” actress. Never mind that the acting skills demonstrated in Katy’s “Part of Me” video (the one where she joins the Marines) was laughably lousy; but in her defense, no one ever expects Oscar-caliber stuff in a music video, right? Well apparently, Katy is taking herself seriously on that note, and her ego has also been bolstered by a cameo in Get Him to the Greek (in which she made out with not-yet-husband Russell Brand) and a role as the voice of slutty Smurfette in last summer’s The Smurfs.

I guess since Katy is now participating within her own 3-D concert movie, perhaps some producers are getting the bright idea that it’s not that big of a stretch to toss her into a romantic comedy and see if an audience shows up to put their butts in seats. Indeed, Katy was even almost hired for a role in The Help, and she was “upset” that the role didn’t work out due to scheduling conflicts. Can you imagine? Well Katy can definitely imagine, and according to this week’s Enquirer, she’s now begging Kristen Wiig to write her a perfect script and help her get started as a true Hollywood ingenue:

Katy Perry

Quirky singing sensation Katy Perry is planning to hit a new high note in her career…as a movie star.

The songbird known for her wild fashion style and revolving hair colors has already branched out by being a spokesperson for Proactiv skin care products, and she now wants to add “leading lady” to her resume.

“Even people who don’t know Katy’s music know her form her Proactiv ad campaign,” said a close source. “With her photogenic face, producers are confident she’ll be able to make the jump from the recording studio to the big screen.”

To accomplish her new goal, Katy has enlisted the help of “Saturday Night Live” star Kristen Wiig.

She’s betting that Kristen, who’s also won raves for her acting and scripting of the movie hit, Bridesmaids, can help katy reinvent herself in the wake of her split from comic actor Russell Brand, say insiers.

The “Part of Me” singer and the “SNL” funnylady have been fast friends since Katy hosted the late-night comedy show in December.

“Katy is plotting a huge image and career makeover,” revealed the source. “Coming off a painful divorce from Russell, she wants to start fresh. She feels like she’s reached her full potential as a musician. She is looking for new challenges and is begging Kristen to write a comedy for her.”

The 27-year-old pop idol has already had some minor screen roles. But with Kristen’s help, she’s hoping to make movie magic, and if a role calls for showing a lot of skin, Katy’s all for it.

“Although Katy is a real-life preacher’s daughter, she’s not shy,” said the source. “She’s never had a problem showing off her ample assets.”

[From Enquirer, print edition, April 30, 2012]

This will probably happen in some shape or form even if Kristen says, “Sorry, no dice.” All that movie producers really care about are dollar signs, and acting ability matters very much in the grand scheme of starting out in Hollywood. However, once people realize that Katy is merely a “pretty face” (and a very made-up one at that, she’ll be a goner after one or two movies. In other words, Katy probably shouldn’t give up her mindless music anytime soon. Yes, she is very pretty though.

    the person who styles/upkeeps her eyebrows does an excellent job. they look great.

    i have no response to the acting thing.

  2. Erinn says:

    I did not like her on HIMYM…but I think SOME of that was the character. Who knows… maybe she could be decent at acting in different roles, but I also kind of doubt it.

    • Relli says:

      Agreed-o. Although I have like how they used all the pop stars in the past, her role of “Honey” just seemed like Katie being Katie. Britney actually showed some depth in her role and was pretty funny. But ironically Carrie Underwears was the best, she was actually pretty funny. You go Country B!tch!

    • smith says:

      I was just coming here to write how awful she was on HIMYM. It was such an easy part and the rest of the cast really tried to help her “act better” if you know what I mean. She was wooden and seemed very self-aware.

      But I didn’t think Brit was much better. A little but not much.

      Carrie Underwear was good. I can’t stand the girl but I have to give her credit when due.

  3. gillociraptor says:

    It’s hard to be a movie star when you’re so pretty, Katy.

    Just ask Jessica Biel.

  4. Joule says:

    Maybe I’m alone on this but I don’t think she’s as pretty as she’s gets praised for. She’s not ugly but she’s not a standout, gorgeous girl either. Just average and once done up then pretty, jmo.

    • thinkaboutit says:

      I was thinking the same thing. I didn’t know she was considered “pretty.” I thought that was the whole point of the exaggerated make-up, candy-colored hair and crazy costumes…that she’s ordinary-looking so let’s give the crowd something to look at. Like Gaga, who quietly redid her ENTIRE face while everyone was looking at her crazy hair, shoes and clothes.

    • yo momma says:

      Ditto. i agree on another gossip site there are a lot of people that share our opinion.

    • Tiffany says:

      I agree. Purely aesthetically, her eyes are beautiful but she has a weak chin, her cheekbones aren’t very strong, and her nose is a bit large and angular. If her looks are the only thing making her think she will be a good “movie star”, then I think she has been hanging around too many “yes” men.

      I don’t think she would be a good actress because she seems to lack depth (in her music, video choices, how her voice emotes in her songs, etc.). You can tell what a good actress is thinking…Katy doesn’t seem to think much at all.

    • Camille (The original) says:

      I agree with you Joule.

      KP is very average and only looks ‘pretty’ when she has nice (not to mention a ton of) makeup on.

      I’m happy to know I’m not alone in thinking this girl is over rated.

  5. OhMyMy says:

    Meh…they gave Britney Spears a starring movie role they can let Katy try it too…just one.

  6. J O'C says:

    The episode of SNL that she hosted was one of the worst I’ve seen in a long time. Girlfriend CANNOT act – and she’s not funny.

  7. Zelda says:

    I didn’t realize wearing a lot of makeup = pretty.

    She has the most blah face: weird large-Marge eyeballs and zero bone structure. Trying to figure out where the myth that she is a beauty came from. Assuming PR people.

    I’m being a bitch because I am hungover, but I’m not being a liar.

  8. Cathy says:

    I don’t waste my money, my time,or my hearing on her music. I definately won’t be wasting any money or time on any movie she might do.

  9. sup says:

    painful divorce? russell didn’t even want any money from her, it was pretty quick and painless. and there were no custody battles either so… this is probably revenge from russell plan. how can anybody even fall for that guy? lol

    • Zelda says:

      I like funny, smart, outgoing, poorly behaved, unkempt guys. Also, more of the funny.
      I totally, totally would.

      • valleymiss says:

        Me too. And I respect the hell outta Russell for not taking any of Katy’s money. Painful divorce, my ass. Grow up, Katy.

      • Eve says:

        Agree with both (Zelda and Valleymiss). Though I never found Russell Brand attractive, I watched Arthur and absolutely loved him in it (so I think I would…as long as he made me laugh).

      • sup says:

        well i’ll give you that one ladies. we like funny and smart there’s nothing wrong with that. but he is a sex addict and was a drug addict and alcoholic and god knows what other issues he has. clearly a very addictive personality and i would fear std’s if i met somebody like that irl.

    • Carolyn says:

      I imagine a divorce would be pain-free if you have no children and have $$$$ in the bank. And to top it off Russell didn’t go after any of her finances. They practically just signed some papers and walked away from each other. Katy may be OK in very small bit-parts. The camera does love her and if styled/made up right she can look gorgeous. She’s good on the Proactiv ads. Better than Beiber. PS just realised something. The last “singer” who thought he could be an “actor” was Timberlake…..

      • sup says:

        she really can’t be good in any small parts either. she sucked at snl and even her smurfette part was done terribly. heck she can’t even act in her own videos!

  10. marie says:

    That is a horrible idea. Why oh why do singers think they can be actors and actors think they can be singers, it very rarely works. Stop it..

  11. Gia says:

    Oh god. Hasn’t this phase passed yet? This chick is Debby’s Gibson 2.0. NEXT!

  12. teehee says:

    Seems like every nitwit wants to take us for every penny we’ve got, as if we’re total idiots, before the formula is passed on and copy pasted by the next superficial, total no-talent.
    The only good thing I can say, is it gives me something to comment on when I need distraction.

  13. serena says:

    Eewwww please spare us, Katy.

  14. Franny says:

    I don’t know if romcom is here area, maybe more comedy than romantic movies. She was pretty good on SNL a few months back and I wouldn’t mind seeing her in a Kristin Wiig movie. Plus I just love Kristin so anything with her in it will do.

  15. shailee says:

    mhh no Katy, please just stick to pop/teeny music.She might be serious about the acting, she now has the same agent/publicist as Kstew, so who knows

  16. Sunny says:

    I hate her,but her boobies are beautiful and she’s pretty sometimes.

  17. Jane says:

    She was cute on Raising Hope…when she played that crazy Orphan Annie looking jail guard.

  18. MST says:

    Well, I guess I’m in the minority here but I do think she’s very pretty.

  19. sluggo says:

    Yeah, KP will become a great movie star, as soon as they find a way to auto-tune acting. Until then, she can just stick with the usual acting, like her last award-winning performance: “What, my shoulder strap ‘accidentally’ slipped down and my boob almost made a break for it? Silly me. Oh well, accidents happen!”

  20. lucy2 says:

    Uh, I think Kristin Wiig is going to be focusing on her own awesome career, not helping a spoiled pop star take jobs away from real actors.

    I think she’s pretty too – with the right makeup and styling. But that doesn’t equal good actor.
    She wasn’t terrible on Raising Hope, but it was a small, cartoonish role.

  21. paola says:

    What is she going to do with those lifeless dead fish eyes? she might need a few acting lesson to get rid of that Mary Magdalene pose she always wears

  22. Jenna says:

    I can’t get over her blue styled hair in that disco-ball dress of hers…

  23. Annika says:

    Well, if Kristen Stewart can make it…

    • cupidityrox says:

      excellent point. I recently saw a movie of kstew.. Welcome to the rhiley’s & came to the conclusion that the only role she’ll ever be believable in is as a front store mannequin. Zero charisma

  24. Mary jones says:

    Did anyone see the picture Russell Brand posted of her wo makeup? So fugly.

    • iseepinkelefants@hotmail.com says:

      Yes. Which is why I can’t believe people think she’s hot.

    • Carolyn says:

      I seriously think that was the start of the end of that relationship. If it was a decent photo they’d be together.

  25. Jenna says:

    “Reached her full potential as a musician?”

    What does THAT mean, finally reached a point where people are starting to ask you to sing when you don’t have autotune and have to panic? She’s the face of a high caliber group of writers & producers who can crank out the cotton candy better than most other folks in the business – but let’s not, PLEASE, confuse wearing a bra made out of whipped cream canisters and bouncing around like Betty Boop on Meth as being a Musician.

    Actually – acting would likely BE a better fit. She already knows how to fake lines… can’t be worse than the reality girls who try ‘serious’ acting.

    • paola says:

      she is by far the most overrated singer in the whole world. she has zero singing skills and she wouldn’t be right where she is if it wasn’t for those boobs and those empty blue eyes. Every time i see her i think of all the young artists trying to emerge in the music business, maybe someone who can actually sing or play an instrument! incredible isn’t it?

      • Jenna says:

        Less incredible, more depressing. Personally? I can’t sing a note (which means I keep my singing for in the car and in the shower where it either can’t hurt anyone else… or the fact I’m naked and soapy distracts my husband from any auditory pain!) but I DO have perfect pitch (handy when musical friends need their instruments tuned, but beyond that does me little good and lots of pain when listening to tone-deaf twits like KP) and when I know so many amazingly talented musicians who can’t catch a break because they don’t look like what the music machine feeds on, it can be crazy making.

        Makes me glad that I DO live around so many talented people, actually. Dozens of little area dives around me filled with wildly talented folks who perform just for the sheer joy of singing/playing an instrument/songwriting. Means I can keep my radio off and pretend the pop tarts of the world are just a bad dream – and I can concentrate on the pure joy of good music. (my husband is the best of all worlds – computer programmer with a real job, works security on the side so a bit of a bad boy, AND classically trained in music. 2nd dates was a moonlit walk over a suspension bridge at midnight where he pulled me onto his knee and sang Music of the Night to me. Never looked back, and 8 years later he is STILL showing me what real talent is like!)

  26. iseepinkelefants@hotmail.com says:

    All I can think is Zooey Deschanel. We already have one (Zooey is actually pretty and less annoying than Perry), we don’t need two.

    Oh and if her Proactiv ad is anything to go on she’ll be sh-t.

    • Kim says:

      and Zooey has a WAY better voice than Katy.

    • Claire78 says:

      Zooey has a gorgeous voice. Katie scrubs up well – you know how people get kinda shiny when they become mega famous and start standing out? I think 2 or 3 years ago you would have walked past her in the street. The fake eyelashes and thick makeup help. I do think she is pretty but the people who put her together know how to work it all to make her sensational.

  27. Amanda G says:

    Katie Perry…pretty? Her great body gives off the illusion of a pretty face…just like Scarlett Johansson and Sofia Vergara.

  28. nina says:

    Katy needs to look at Milley Cyrus and realize that will be her future too. She’ll get a couple movies from her sheer celebrity, and then both her singing and movie careers will falter shortly ater. She needs to stick to pop and stop listening to people who are blowing air up her ass with this ” you could do movies” talk.

  29. k says:

    I thought she had natural comedic talent on Raising Hope and SNL. Maybe she can’t carry a movie, but she’s a decent supporting actress, at least for comedy.

  30. Jayna says:

    Her hair looks so dumb and so not edgy.

    Her acting was horrible in that video. But who knows? Maybe she can improve on the big screen. Madonna was really amazing in her videos, but her acting was wooden in movies, save a couple of roles.

    • Minty says:

      Yeah, we get it. You’re a big Madonna fan(atic). You don’t need to keep bringing her name up in almost every unrelated thread.

      Katy uses a wheelbarrow of makeup to look somewhat attractive. Without all those layers, she is very ordinary-looking (as evidence, see Twitter pic: no makeup). She’s a crappy singer and an even crappier actress, just like Madonna.

  31. Helen says:

    No, not pretty. Sorry. Pretty awkward and fake looking. She has an annoying face makeup or no makeup. Just annoying. And she looks really smug half the time. Smug is ugly.

    Oh gawd. If Kristen wastes a perfectly good script on Katy she is dead to me. There are thousands of girls who are ten times more attractive and intelligent and funny than Katy, like for instance, ALL the actresses in Hollywood and Europe. Please give those girls employment.

    And she has “reached” her full potential as a musician? Woah. It’s all about the music right?

    I bet this is why she wants Russell back, so he would have to put her in one of his movies.

  32. Kim says:

    “Although Katy is a real-life preacher’s daughter, she’s not shy,” said the source. “She’s never had a problem showing off her ample assets.”

    File this under DUHHH! This is how she made her career – its certainly isnt based on talent.

  33. Kathryn says:

    Katy Perry’s all “Fame is a disgusting by-product of what I do” except she is always running around getting pap’d and on display all over the place. (Hello she was on the cover of TeenVogue recently, that’s not required.) You don’t have to be that exposed, honey, Robert DeNiro is hugely successful and EXTREMELY private, not doing interviews and cavorting about.
    I love her music, I just think she’s getting a little full of herself.

  34. Jover says:

    All the posts are spot on – attractive please Linda Evangilista,Naomi Campbell, Yasmeen Ghauri are beautiful – this girl is fugly (see her pic without makeup), and her fugliness is amplified by her brainlessness and COMPLETE lack of singing talent – reached her full potential THis twit means the computer that autotunes her caterwauling is running low on juice, One more reason why I despise today’s pop “stars.”

  35. Chrissy says:

    She is pretty. But that’s not enough to be a good actress. But why not let her try? I don’t think much of her singing.

  36. Bogz says:

    She was also HORRIBLE on SNL.

  37. dahlia1947 says:

    SHe needs to look to something else because she’s gonna look strange singing pop into her 30’s.

    She’s annoying though and I don’t think she would be a good actress. She has a Julia Roberts vibe. In your face, riding coat tails…

  38. Lenore says:

    If they ever make a movie of Jem And The Holograms, she could be Aja with that hair. Or Synergy maybe. And yes damn it I would pay to see it. 🙂

    What am I saying, “IF”? They’re rebooting everything these days. How is this not already happening?

  39. Helly says:

    i used to like her sooooooo much before she went crazy, but i still think she’s soooooooo beautiful!! i like her voice, she’s not completely talentless but she’s becoming vain,i won’t say confident!

  40. Sara says:

    She wears a LOT of make up. It’s hard to tell how naturally pretty she would be under all the black eyeliner and false lashes.

  41. Elle says:

    I heard she’s obsessed with aliens – For the love of god why can’t they just take her away! Done with her and her over exposure. Team Russell definitely

  42. Str8Shooter says:

    Last I checked, beautiful REAL women who are serious about pursuing a career where they, ya know…ACT…don’t run around with Smurf hair. Seriosly, grow the f–k up honey!

  43. Meanchick says:

    Well, she IS pretty.

  44. dahlianoir says:

    She’s good looking but not that pretty when you unload the makeup. Remember the pic of her waking up her ex sent ? Yes, it still haunts my soul.
