According to Leo‘s interview with USA Today, Rihanna‘s part was just a cameo.

“It was a small part written specifically for her,” he shared. “She was supposed to play herself [Rihanna].”

Leo added that “when Baby Annette becomes famous, there was a duet between the puppet and Rihanna. But then Rihanna feels upstaged by this baby.”

The movie centers on the romance between comedian Henry (Driver) and Ann (Cotillard), a world-renowned opera singer, whose child turns out to be a mysterious little girl with an exceptional destiny, will turn their lives upside down.

Annette is currently playing in select theaters and will begin streaming August 20 on Amazon Prime Video.
