Ri­hanna's

Os­car dreams

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Ri­hanna wants to win an Os­car. The singer has a role in new movie 'Va­le­rian' and will star in the up­com­ing 'Ocean's Eight' along­side San­dra Bul­lock and al­though Ri­hanna is not mak­ing movies specif­i­cally to win awards, she ad­mit­ted it would be nice to get some "val­i­da­tion". She said: "I'd love to get there one day. Who doesn't want to be told they are do­ing a great job? "Any val­i­da­tion that your work is im­pact­ing is re­ward­ing. I work hard and put my all into ev­ery­thing I do but the rest isn't up to me. "I don't think any­one makes an al­bum think­ing about win­ning a Grammy, or makes a movie think­ing about win­ning an Os­car. What you do is work as hard as you can and if awards fol­low, then that's great." Ri­hanna plays shape shift­ing en­ter­tainer Bub­ble in 'Va­le­rian' and al­though she didn't need to method act for the rule, she hasn't ruled it out in the fu­ture. She told the Sun yesterday: "It's pretty dif­fi­cult to method act when it comes to play­ing a shape-shift­ing en­ter­tainer but, se­ri­ously, I have noth­ing but re­spect for the ac­tors that do. "If you look at the well-known method ac­tors of the gen­er­a­tion, they put in in­cred­i­ble per­for­mance af­ter in­cred­i­ble per­for­mance. It's no co­in­ci­dence. "I just do what's best for the role, what's best for me, I'd love to do some­thing dark and dif­fer­ent and chal­lenge my­self." And while she may be a hugely suc­cess­ful singer, Ri­hanna, 28, in­sisted she will never act like a diva on a movie set. She said: "I of­fer my­self like clay to di­rec­tors. You don't do diva on film sets."
