If you thought that international pop sensation Rihanna wanted to reprise Whitney Houston’s famous lead role in the hit movie “The Bodyguard” ….. think again.
The Barbadian starlet confirmed in a recent interview with OK! Magazine that she has no plans to take on the role. She told the magazine:
“Absolutely not,” Rihanna says. “I want to separate the two. I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time, because you can never look at them as anybody else.”
When asked who she would like to play, she responded:
“I want to play a character. My whole life is playing Rihanna, [so] being a singer [in a film] won’t be a stretch for me. I like challenges, and being an actor is playing a role, being able to step into somebody else’s shoes, that’s the excitement.”
But fear not Rihanna fans! You will get the chance to see the “S&M” singer starring in her first movie entitled “Battleship” in May 2012. She will star alongside Taylor Kitsch and “True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard.
