The 'Teenage Dream' singer says she is looking forward to kicking off her acting career in the near future.

Katy Perry has revealed her ambition to move into acting at some point in her career, but admits she is quietly cautious about choosing her first live-action film role.

The 'California Gurls' singer lent her voice to the role of Smurfette in the summer 2011 animated film The Smurfs, and appeared as herself in a deleted scene in Get Him To The Greek, but is hoping to take on more roles in the future.

"Of course I want to do films," Katy told Kristen Wiig in Interview this month. "I'm cautious about doing them because it's such a different world to me.

"It's collaborative in a different way than I'm used to," the 'E.T.' singer explained. "I do a lot of collaborating with my tour, music, and everything, but at the end of the day, if I don't want to do something then I can say I don't want to do it.

"[But] on a film you have to take a little bit more of a backseat on that type of stuff – especially when you're dealing with studios and the 77 cooks in the kitchen."

Katy said that despite being daunted by the idea of entering the movie industry she is still keen to make her acting debut.

"I've got to mentally prepare to get into that world. So yes, I do want to do films, but I'll be very specific about what I do," she added.

Katy Perry will rerelease her 2010 album 'Teenage Dream' with several remixes and brand new tracks as 'Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection' on 13th March.
