Confusion currently encases Rihanna‘s ‘ANTI’ album campaign, but that hasn’t stopped the Bajan beauty from continuing to build her empire.
In the absence of any charting music, the 27-year-old has opted to flex her acting muscles – this time in Luc Besson‘s newest movie ‘Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets.’
The star’s involvement with the flick (reportedly a prominent one) took her to France this week, where she has been shooting the Sci-Fi flick.
Little is known about the specifics of Rih’s role, but the film itself follows time-traveling agent Valerian, who is sent to investigate a galactic empire, along with his partner Laureline. Actor Clive Owen and Cara Delevingne are also set to star.
With shooting seemingly wrapped for the model, Besson has been gushing about her performance.
See what he had to say below…
Sharing the shot below on Instagram, the French filmaker added the caption:
Rihanna blows me away.
She is a natural born actress….
Thank you RiRi for this wonderful week!
Some may scoff, but we agree.
Rih has been blowing our minds too. For the last ten years in-fact.
After all, it takes quite the skill-set to moonlight as a “singer” when her talents are so clearly rooted elsewhere.
Should she keep it up, we envision Oscars, Golden Globes, heck even a Tony in her future.
Randomness: Rih’s current accolades include a win for Worst Supporting Actress at the 2013 Razzie Awards for her role in box office bomb ‘Battleship’.
