Rihanna Is 'Really, Really Good in Battleship'

Rihanna Is 'Really, Really Good in Battleship'

Rihanna heads to Novikov restaurant for dinner on Wednesday (February 22) in London, England.

Peter Berg, who directed the 24-year-old pop star in Battleship, recently raved about her performance in the upcoming action flick.

“I was surprised no one had ever thought to hire Rihanna [as an actress]. I was a huge fan of her vidoes. Obviously she’s sexy, but she had this real intensity,” he told MTV News.

“When I met with her, she came in a t-shirt and jeans, no makeup, very natural,” Peter recalled. “She was like, ‘Look, I want to be an actress. Don’t kiss my ass. Don’t lie to me. Push me. Treat me as you would any other actor. Help make me good.’ She is really, really good in Battleship.”

    R.I.P. Oscar – A Hollywood Satire by Andie Heid:
    Welcome to the 84th Oscar Games! Please welcome your host for the evening, the one and only Billy with the Crystal Ball:
    Good evening ladies and gentlemen! As you already know it all ends on 21 December 2012. But what if Hollywood says NO? We’ll figure it out. It would be a shame, if we wouldn’t have the chance to see Transformers 4-5-6-7 (It’s like a neverending story), Jar Jar Binks in 4 D (3 D is so yesterday), Pocahontas under water (Avatar 2) or Batman vs. Superman vs. Spider-Man vs. Iron Man vs. Green Lantern vs. Robin vs. Flash vs. Captain America vs. Hulk vs. Thor vs. Black Widow vs. Wonderwoman vs. Catwoman vs. Lara Croft (Did I forget somebody? And who would win?).
    I promise you, that the Oscar Show will be young and hip and fresh and cool and jiggy and … sorry I can’t see the teleprompter… yeah and funny of course.
    We (Oscar and I) eliminated all the tech categories, so we didn’t have to invite all the freaks and geeks. Now the room is full with beautiful and rich people and IF you win, you will have more time to thank your plastic surgeon, hair dresser, stylist, Chanel, Prada, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Louboutin. Not to forget GOD, for creating you, your family for showing embarrassing photos or videos from your childhood and your greedy agent for getting you a job, a boyfriend and calling the paparazzi, where you are.
    A little side note: Gollum has stolen the envelopes…

    Peter Berg is one of those directors that is a hit/miss. ‘Battlieship’ is expected to “BOMB”, either way. Rihanna is pure stunt casting from Hollywood, Berg saying she killed it at the screen testing is absolute a “lie!” There are plenty of actresses to choose from, more skilled and could fit the role, but they cast her instead.

    Stunt Casting = “Hollywood’s plea to bring in an audience ’cause they’re afraid they’ll lose money.”

  • Prezes

    He hired her – what else he could say ? He’s a director, for crying out loud, he can’t shit talk his own movie. I haven’t seen it yet, maybe she’s good in it. But as far as for directors talking about their movies and people they hire goes – they are not the most reliable source.

    Exciting, can’t wait!!!

    im sorry but i have no respect for these music artists who have no talent, a good singing voice is all they have and needed for song writers to make them into these fake stars who dont write their music and are told what to wear every day, and now they want to come to HW? heck no.
