Not very often a regular guy gets a big break just by working with a pop mega star like Rihanna.

British boxer/model Dudley O’Shaughnessy was living a normal life a few months ago, until he was hand picked by Rihanna to star in her new video “We Found Love,” giving him a taste of a super star life.

ThisIsLondon.com recently caught up with the boxer turned model of Black Irish descent, where he discuss what it was like working with RiRi.

“I wasn’t starstruck at all … She’s just such a nice girl,” O’Shaughnessy said. It’s not like just because she’s achieved so much that she thinks her sh*t don’t stink. She’s such a humble, down-to-earth girl and that made it even better for me because I didn’t feel intimidated or anything. We just got along. We were just like mates.”

He said he said filming the intimate scene was fun and he never wanted it to end.

“You’ve just got to get into it. It took about three-and-a-half days to film. I loved it. I didn’t want it to end. Not just because it was ‘a certain person’s’ video but just because I love being on set.”

“Everyone has been surprised and shocked, but everybody is happy for me.”
