The 'Part Of Me' star tells Capital she kept the more unflattering moments in her 3D blockbuster because it's more realistic.
Katy Perry has hit out at what she refers to as "fake Hollywood" when explaining the reasons she kept some of her "exhausted" looking scenes in her new 3D movie.
The 'I Kissed A Girl' star told Capital FM that she is pleased the film is "honest" and hopes that people will be able to see that they don't need to "fit in" to achieve their dreams.
"I'm glad that it's honest and revealing in the right way," she confessed. "Hopefully people will walk away from the movie being like 'yeh, I don't have to fit in in order to achieve my dreams."
Speaking about the more unflattering moments of the film, she added: "I thought it was important to leave those shots where I'm exhausted looking and without this [make-up] full beat because I mean I don't always look like this of course and that's not reality and I don't like to be a part of fake Hollywood – I think that's gross."
