Rihanna Attends Australian Premiere of Battleship, Talks "The Boys"Tue, Apr 10, 2012
"There's a lot of good food here, a lot of good scenery, I love taking a cruise around the harbour sometimes, the shopping,'' Rihanna told the Australian Herald about what she loved about down under. "And the boys. So beautiful."
"The navy have a lot of women in there and I was looking for somebody that ... we hadn't seen before in film, and I believed kind of had swagger, and could kick ass, and look at her - she's got it," Director Peter Berg adds.
Rihanna's new BFF and co-star Brooklyn Decker also had kind words about the pop star. "The fact that we bring two really empowered women to a movie that typically doesn't show strong, empowered women, is really special for us," she said.
Playing a naval officer also gave Rihanna a stronger appreciation for the navy. "I have only respect for them. They're real life heroes ... These guys are putting their lives on the line for their country," she adds.
