Rihanna Won’t Star In The Bodyguard Remake

Last week saw reports suggest that Rihanna was being lined up to take on Whitney Houston’s role in the highly anticipated remake of the 80’s classic, The Bodyguard.

However, the Only Girl (In The World) star has denied the claims, revealing that she is not interested in pursuing singing acting roles.

In an interview with OK! magazine, Rihanna was asked if she was interested in being part of the remake to which she answered:  “Absolutely not. I want to separate the two.”

She elaborated:  “I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time because you can never look at them as anybody else.”

Of her fledgling acting career, Rihanna continued: “I want to play a character, my whole life is playing Rihanna, being a singer 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.”

Rihanna is set to star in Battleship later this year. Do you think she has what it takes to be a successful actress?
