'The Smurfs' Deemed Too Saucy for Katy Perry


Katy Perry


When she was a kid, the singer was banned to watch the movie because her strict pastor parents deemed the Smurfette character too saucy for kids.

Katy Perry is relishing her role in "The Smurfs" movie, because she was banned from watching the TV show as a child. The pop star is making her foray into acting by voicing the character of Smurfette in an upcoming adaptation of the popular cartoon series.

But Perry admits she was never able to watch the program when she was younger, because her strict pastor parents deemed the Smurfette character too saucy for kids. She explains, "It's funny because I was never allowed to watch The Smurfs growing up. My mum thought that Smurfette being the only female in the village was a little bit scantily clad, if you know what I mean. I grew up in a very sheltered house. But this Smurfs is definitely one for the kids... It is a family movie."

"The Smurfs", also starring Neil Patrick Harris and Hank Azaria, is due for release in 2011.
