Rihanna Leads ‘Battleship’ Premiere In Today’s Twitter-Wood

This time next week “Battleship” will blast into theaters, but a few lucky people saw the film at the L.A. premiere last night! Rihanna brought her whole family along for the voyage as she hit the blue carpet in a revealing dress that made us question why she ever held boob envy for Brooklyn Decker. But we digress with a blush.

When MTV News caught up with the singer-turned-actress she told us her debut role intimidated her. “I was walking into this as an amateur—a complete amateur. I didn’t know anything and I had a good team to learn from. I watched them, and especially Taylor [Kitsch], ’cause we did a lot of scenes together and he would always offer me advice.”

“There was nothing for them to be intimidated about,” she continued. “I was the wreck. I was a wreck, just like, scared to sh–, especially when Liam Neeson showed up to set.”

It’s her first acting gig. It also happens to be one of the most highly-anticipated films of the summer. Plus, she was starring alongside Neeson who was a Jedi Master in the “Star Wars” prequels, voiced a powerful lion (who happened to represent God) in “Narnia” and kicked a whole lot of bad guy ass to save his daughter in “Taken.” Obviously being intimated is extremely irrational.

It’s unclear if “Battleship” will sink or swim against the current box-office champion “Avengers,” but we’ll find out soon enough!
