Rihanna Kicks Alien Ass on Set of ‘Battleship’ [Video]

Rihanna

Don’t mess with Rihanna. The fearless pop star kicks some serious ass in Battleship, her first dramatic big screen role. “Entertainment Tonight” joined the singer-actress on board the USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor last year, where she was shooting the $200 million live-action movie.

“She’s a fighter, she’s a killer,” explains RiRi of her tough character, Navy weapons officer Raikes. “I’m one of the boys. We do everything together. We go on all our missions together.”

As part of her physically-demanding role, she hunts aliens at sea. “These aliens are thugs,” says the 23-year-old, who suffered bruises, scrapes, and sore muscles while being trained by real military officers.

But she was most proud to pay tribute to the brave men and women of the armed forces. “They’re real men and women—everyday heroes, fighting everyday. It’s really good to represent that.”

The Peter Berg-directed film co-starring Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, and Taylor Kitsch sails into theaters May 18, 2012.

    Get em girl! Don’t worry about what nobody think (and I know you ain’t)! Just keep doing what makes you happy and motivates other to better themselves. This is what success is really all about!

    You can have all the money in the world, but if you aren’t inspiring people in a way that changes the world for the better, what does it mean?

    People always brag about having money, but you CANNOT take it with you when you die. Those are temporary riches. I don’t want that. I want what lasts AFTER MY TIME IS UP!

    What you CAN take is the beautiful things you did for people! Like inspiration!

    “rated r”. And she did not care if people

    @diego,

    It must be really sad to have all that hate in your heart. Instead of congratulating her on trying something new, the first thing that came to mind was to say something negative. Poor soul. Try finding out what YOUR passion in life is and you won’t come off as such a hater.

    This seemed like a good movie until they said aliens then that big transformer looking this popped up. Can’t judge a movie by its trailer though, it might be a blockbuster.
