Rihanna Busts Out the Big Guns on Set of ‘Battleship’


Rihanna may be one tough chick, but she picked up some new moves while filming her first dramatic big screen role in Universal Pictures’ Battleship. The singer-actress plays Navy weapons officer Raikes in the $200 million live-action movie.

“She’s not afraid of anything. She loves weapons, she knows them, and not only her weapon, but every other weapon on the ship,” said RiRi of Raikes.

She learned the ropes from a real life Navy specialist named Jacqueline Carrizosa. “I watched her and I really just lived and breathed in her mindset and tried to really get in her character,” said the pop star. “She’s fearless and she’s one of the boys. It was really fun to just explore that.”

The Peter Berg-directed film co-starring Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, and Taylor Kitsch arrives in theaters on May 18. Go behind the scenes below.

    Rihanna playing a Navy Officer? Really? Next it’ll be Nicki playing some agent who works for the CIA. That role clearly does not work in Rihanna’s favor.
