RIHANNA Not Interested In THE BODYGUARD Remake?

By on 8 March, 2011



Rihanna has stated she has no interest in filling Whitney Houston‘s shoes in the upcoming remake of ‘The Bodyguard‘, and is refusing to play a singer on the big screen!


The Umbrella chart-topper is set to make her acting debut in upcoming blockbuster ‘Battleship‘ and hopes to follow with more movie roles. However she has ruled out a potentially perfect role for her, because playing a singer wouldn’t be a “challenge”.

When asked if she’s interested in ‘The Bodyguard‘ remake, Rihanna told OK! magazine:

“Absolutely not. 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.

“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.”
