Ri­hanna feels shy watch­ing her per­for­mances back

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Ri­hanna feels “shy” watch­ing her­self on screen. The 29-year-old beauty was very proud to star in ‘Va­le­rian and the City of a Thou­sand Plan­ets’ and, un­usu­ally for her, she en­joyed see­ing her turn as alien bur­lesque dancer Bub­ble. She said: “I mean, when Luc Bes­son calls, you just go. You just show up. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of the cast with Cara [Delev­ingne] and Dane [DeHaan]. The movie is so ex­cit­ing, it’s so beau­ti­ful - and I usu­ally get shy about see­ing my­self on TV or hear­ing my voice but he did such a spec­tac­u­lar job. I was blown away.” The ‘We Found Love’ singer “iden­ti­fied” a lot with her char­ac­ter. She ex­plained: “Luc told me that bub­ble is an artist and she’s very sen­si­tive. So I kind of iden­ti­fied with her. “She’s a shape-shifter and I like to think of my­self as a shape-shifter when it comes to my fash­ion, my mu­sic, and my vi­su­als, so it was an ex­cit­ing part. I fell in love with her.” Though she had a great time work­ing on the film, Ri­hanna ad­mits it was “in­tim­i­dat­ing” when she first went onto the set. She told OK! mag­a­zine: “It was def­i­nitely in­tim­i­dat­ing, like walk­ing into a whole world you don’t re­ally un­der­stand. “You can’t re­ally see what Luc has in mind but you have to just trust him, and he is such an ex­cel­lent di­rec­tor. “He was so pa­tient with me, know­ing that I’m new to this, and he re­ally dug in there to get what he needed out of me. I en­joyed it and I learnt a lot.”
