Rihanna's been a VERY busy gal. After dropping her FIYAH album Anti , followed by a world tour, babes managed to make time to film a role in the sci-fi thriller Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
The film will also star Cara Delvingne and follows partners Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara) as they try to keep the peace between planets while on a mission together in outta space.
Filmmaker Luc Besson recently revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Rihanna was her immediate first choice to play the role rumoured to be an alien stripper.
"Rihanna was my first wish, first, because of her voice and the way she smiles and looks and how she expresses herself. Second, because you know she won’t be intimidated on the set. She plays stadiums with 100,000 people. You know that girl isn’t shy about the camera and the crew and all this.”
“She was very direct with me,” Besson tells EW. “She said ‘Luc, I want to learn, I want to work. Just let me do it.’ And I must say that she was a great partner and did everything I asked,” Besson says, adding with a laugh, “And believe me — I asked too much.”
Is there anything Rih can't do?!
