Katharine McPhee recently talked to MTV about her first starring movie role in I Know What Boys Like.
â€œThis is very different,â€ said McPhee, looking around a set that included Anna Faris, Colin Hanks, Emma Stone and Rumer Willis. â€œI can see how people would get freaked out on sets, because thereâ€™s so many people behind the camera and you get only a few chances - depending on who the director is - to do what you have to do.â€
Of course, being on the smash show that American Idol is helped McPhee adjust to the craziness and attention.
â€œIâ€™ve felt really comfortable, actually,â€ she said.â€œComing from a show that millions of people watch, itâ€™s a lot less scary. So, Iâ€™ve had a blast. The whole [movie] experience, this whole environment, is like a family. You get to know all the faces, all the grips, all the stagehands and stuff like that.â€
