Rihanna: I Felt 'Intimidated' by 'Battleship' Role

Rihanna: I Felt 'Intimidated' by 'Battleship' Role

A makeup-free Rihanna arrives at a hotel on Tuesday (May 1) in New York City.

Over the weekend, the 24-year-old entertainer hit Hawaii for a photo call with her Battleship co-stars, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, and Brooklyn Decker.

“I’ll answer this, because it’s probably uncomfortable for them to say no, but I was the one that was intimidated,” Rihanna told MTV News about stepping into acting.

“You know, we have a mutual respect for each other’s industry,” she added. “I was walking into this as an amateur – a complete amateur. I didn’t know anything and I had a good team to learn from. I watched them, and especially Taylor, ’cause we did a lot of scenes together and he would always offer me advice.”

    She actually looks fresh and normal here. Her makeup makes her look really pale. Her real skin color is healthy and refreshing.

    @jillyro: You know I don’t like Rihanna either, but that doesn’t mean I make fun of her looks…

  • boo!

    That t-shirt is hilarious! What is “Channel?” Someone needs to get their money back pronto.

  • Mary H.

    I thought I was the only one who noticed that. It’s “Chanel” not “Channel”!

  • rada


    it’s meant to rhyme with flannel, a play on words, you know?

  • jillyro

    I stand by my extra-large forehead comment. She needs bangs.

  • Daniel

    LOL without makeup she looks so uglyyyyyyy

  • silkisoul

    Play on words!!!!! Stop trying to find something negative to say.

  • silkisoul

    What’s with the “she looks like shit” comment? Who’s shit look that good? LOL!!!!!!

  • H.

  • triumph

    She looks like Solange in those pics

  • Elle

    I was gonna say the only thing good about her look is the shirt until I realized it’s a knock-off Chanel. Yes it’s supposed to say Chanel not channel. Yuck.

  • PopCritic

    @Daniel: lets see your face

  • no no

    Sorry but she and Beyonce hardly look georgeous sans makeup. I think they got the big head thinking they really look good w/o makeup lmao!!!

  • bebe

    I personally feel she doesn’t look her best/she’s still wearing foundation, yet despite her lack of a full face of makeup she doesn’t look fresh at all/rather tired, older.
    I never thought she was beautiful, I guess she’s cute…but her attitude stinks.
    It’s seems to be a trend online, as soon as people see celebs “without” makeup, they go on describing them as looking gorgeous/beautiful etc.
    “Gorgeous” is a strong word and in all honesty none of them look gorgeous, I wouldn’t describe many of them as looking like it even with makeup.

  • boo!

    @rada: I think you might be right because flanel is also misspelled. So maybe they spelled both words incorrectly intentionally?

  • realpeople

    she has a huge forehead and a big nose

  • realpeople

    to me she is just another TART!

  • realpeople

    she is just abnormally seeking attention as usual, nothing new here people.

  • Ellgy

    Her acting in ‘Battleship’ was terrible.

  • Um

    The f u c k is she wearing.

  • f

    She has a horse face without makeup.

  • yo momma

    she was intimidating by a movie role based on a boardgame. she should stay far away from acting!

  • yesi

    She is a very beautiful girl . She just looks very tire because she works a lot. She has a beautiful black nose you know. Pointed nose does not mean beautiful you know. There are some pointed noses that look very unattractive . Her nose goes with her beautifully.
