Rihanna stars as Petty Officer Cora Aikes in the new blockbuster film Battleship. In the budget buster film, Rihanna hunts some vicious aliens at sea in a fierce battle to save mankind.
Battleship will mark Rihanna’s debut in acting and in a leading role. Critics are already questioning whether or not she will pull it off. Who is better to answer critics than her co-star Taylor Kitsch.
According to Kitsch, Rihanna maybe better at acting than he does at singing. “Oh, man. This is a tough one,” Kitsch said. “This is intense. She’s better at acting.”
Kitsch praised Rihanna’s decision to make her big screen debut in Battleship, calling it a “good career move.”
“It was good [working with her]. I think it’s a great part on her end to work with Peter Berg,” Kitsch said. “To come to a set like that, that he gives that freedom and that empowerment is a good move on her part.”
Battleship opens in theaters May 18th.
