Acting is 'natural extension' of Rihanna's talent, says Brooklyn Decker

April 6, 2012 - Washington

Rihanna has impressed her 'Battleship' co-star Brooklyn Decker with her acting skill.

The 'You Da One' singer makes her acting debut in the film - which is about aliens attacking a US naval convoy and Decker was amazed with how quickly she adapted from performing on stage to the big screen.

"She's been performing for audiences for so long, acting is a natural extension of her talent. She looks so comfortable up there. It's surprising and I think people will be excited to see her," Contactmusic quoted Decker as saying.

Decker particularly enjoyed working on the film because she and Rihanna were given strong characters to play who are more than just "damsels in distress".

"Rihanna and I are very much tomboys. I'm actually not a fan of most action films, because you see the girl and she's a damsel in distress with her hair blown out and being rescued by the hero - that annoys me," she added.

"I want the girl to be tough, and this movie actually showcases two women fending for themselves and fighting this battle and being strong, independent, tough women," she added.
