Who Cares About Talent? Rihanna Wins Film Role, But Has To Take Acting Classes

- By Bossip Staff Categories: New Movie, News, True or False?

BOSSIP recently learned that Rihanna has been cast in her first starring role! The only catch… the folks behind the film aren’t all that confident in RihRih’s acting. Pop the hood for details:

Rihanna’s big role is for a film called About Face, which revolves around a fashion designer who has to change her ways to win over the man of her dreams, not unlike the Billy Dee Williams and Diana Ross classic Mahogany. Here’s the hitch:

“No one is sure she has any acting skills. She’s a bit stiff and has to learn how to emote more,” a source tells Star. “She’s been asked to quietly take acting classes. No one wants another Madonna on their hands — someone who can sing but can’t act!”

Hate to break it to the producers of this one, but Rihanna can’t do either. Neither can Madonna if you want to be all the way real about it. Then again, Rihanna actually might make a decent actress, goodness knows we’ve seen her play the role enough…

    Her acting can be worse than Beyonce in “Obessed”.

  • shonda

    It is a shame for the real trained actors trying to break into the industry. Rhi just lands a part because of who she is….AND GETS A MASSIVE FEE FOR HER TROUBLES.

  • JOJO

    LOL! Everything ya’ll said about Madonna and Rhianna is 100% true! Not everyone is a triple threat!

  • Miss A.

    With her accent, they’re gonna need captions on the screen.

  • frankiestage

    From her stint on SNL, my suspicions are her acting will be about as energetic and inspiring as her stage dancing.

  • JOJO

    LOLZ! @ Miss A. LMBO!

  • Virginia News

    @ drenk, you said it all.

  • b'more

    after seeing beyonce in ‘obsessed’, Rihanna can’t possibly do worse acting than that.

  • Tasha J

    If they’re not confident in her acting abilities, why don’t they just hire an actual actor then? dummies

  • KittyPetit

    …Hell, she’s not like Madonna(can sing;can’t act) Rihanna can’t sing 1st! And now Acting?! I don’t think so….

  • BLACK PEOPLE STOP PLAYING YOURSELVES

    Rihanna HAS NO TALENT. SHE IS NOT BEAUTIFUL AT ALL. SO WHY DO YOU LOOSERS KEEP SUPPORTING HER AND MAKING HER BIG? BLAME YOURSELVES.

  • Lala_NEXT

    HAHAHAHA You guys are serious? This is a joke, right? Ha! This is gotta see. I do need a good laugh, so this I gotta see. Not with my money, but gotta see.
    I strongly think she’ll be worse than Beyonce.

    Rihanna speaks the Standard English very well.

    Her vocabulary isn’t limited (she’s NOT been heard to constantly repeat phrases for eg. ‘its like wow…wow…’ while not being able to effectively say whats on her mind).

    The problem that stems from accents lies within the clarity of diction. Enunciation is quite an important element to articulate when one is speaking. Therefore its imperative that she focuses on this area.

    Again its smart of her to enroll in Drama classes.

  • Mrs.Laadee

    Why cast a non actress in a role when there are plenty are seasoned actresses who don’t need lessons and would be ready to film tomorrow if necessary.
