Popstar and aspiring actress Mariah Carey was thrilled when she found out the producer of her latest film missed her performance in the box-office bomb Glitter.
Producer Lee Daniels cast Carey in the upcoming Tennessee after catching her performance in the 2002 independent drama Wisegirls.
Carey tells MTV News: "I don't know if he's seen (Glitter) since then, but the great thing is, he's in the independent-film world and that's where WiseGirls was such a great validating moment for me - even though it was totally overshadowed by the debacle of Glitter."
The singer, who plays a waitress in Tennessee, as she did in Wisegirls, claims the role was a real departure adding: "The character is so not what you would think.
"This is not about hairdos and ensembles. The girl's in the trenches."
