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.

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

    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.

    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!!!

    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.

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

    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.
