“Absolutely not,” Rihanna told OK! Magazine.
“I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time because you can never look at them as anybody else. 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.”
