Rihanna is huge Gwyneth Paltrow fan

Singer turned actress Rihanna has revealed how she is a huge fan of actress Gwyneth Paltrow, although she does not really know the reason why. Rihanna admitted that she is hugely jealous of Gwyneth and everything about her but still cannot help but like her.

Rihanna explained to a radio station, “I’m obsessed with Gwyneth. Honestly, what is it not? It makes me so jealous all the time … her body … I’m really jealous of her, I don’t even know why I like her.” Rihanna has previously collaborated with Gwyneth Paltrow’s husband Chris Martin and his band Coldplay on the track Princess of China.
 
She added, “Honestly it’s flattering and special to know that other musicians appreciate your music … To have a band like Coldplay that was just surreal, and if I love it, that’s extra points. I know Coldplay, we collaborated together, we worked in the studio, shot a video just recently.”
 
Rihanna recently revealed how she has a huge crush on True Blood actor Alexander Skarsgard, after the pair worked together on the movie Battleship. Battleship currently out now in the UK and is set to be released in the US on May 18.

True Blood actor Alexander Skarsgard is set to appear on the big screen in the movie Battleship, later this month, and the movie will witness the big screen acting debut of singer Rihanna. Alexander has admitted that he was very impressed with Rihanna and claims that she did a fantastic job.

Skarsgard explained, “I was impressed by her work ethic. the days are long on a movie and we had weekends off but she’d go to perform at award shows. It was her first big acting job and she was so enthusiastic.”
 
Alexander then revealed his reasons for accepting the role in Battleship. He added, “The deciding factor for me taking it was meeting the director, Pete Berg. He has a very interesting energy. It’s a very big movie but my problem with films like that is sometimes you don’t care about the characters, it’s just about the explosions, which isn’t much fun for an actor.
 
Skarsgard continued, “Pete’s interested in actors and he talked about my character and his relationships, rather than how cool the aliens would look. That was important. If you don’t care if the characters live or die, it doesn’t matter how cool the rest of it looks.”
 
Battleship is released in the UK on April 11 and in the US on May 18.

True Blood actor Alexander Skarsgard, who plays the vampire Eric Northman in the hit HBO vampire series, has claimed that he is happy to keep his shirt on for new roles, in a bid not to become typecast. Alexander can soon be seen in the movie Battleship, where he wears a uniform for the majority of the film.

Skarsgard explained to the Metro, “I keep my clothes on. If you do a show that gets a lot of attention, you can get type-cast but, as an actor, I want new challenges. When I’m not on True Blood, I want to do different characters. If not, I won’t learn.”
 
However, Alexander did admit that he would be eternally grateful to the success of True Blood for giving him his big break. He added, It’s opened many doors. It’s not like I only get sent similar roles and it’s up to you as an actor to decide what to do with those opportunities. I wouldn’t be where I am without True Blood.”
 
Alexander then went on to reveal how he is currently in the process of filming the fifth season of True Blood but beyond that, he has a fairly empty schedule. Skarsgard continued, “We’re in the middle of shooting season five of True Blood, then I don’t know. I’m looking for projects for the summer.”

Battleship actress Brooklyn Decker has revealed how she spent a lot of her time preparing for her role in the movie at Pearl Harbour and also attended the Brooks Army Medical Hospital in Texas. There she met a number of heroes who she sat down with and many of the stories had a huge impact on Brooklyn.

She added, “One guy in particular was 22-years-old and he’d been in Afghanistan and lost two legs and an arm. He told me that he had a two-year-old daughter and here I am at the time at the same age as him and it’s like ‘well I’m filming a movie,’ it felt so trivial compared to what he was doing.”
 
Brooklyn continued, “I really wanted to do these guys justice, and I feel like one of the unexpected things you see in Battleship is the light we shine on all these heroes. They’re showcased in such a cool, new and beautiful way on a really big stage and I think that’s one of the things I’m most proud of is the spotlight we put on these heroes.”

Carrizosa explained to The Sun, “We were on set from sunrise to sunset — Rihanna was really tough. She was way better than her stunt double. She’s not afraid to get bruised or cut. When it was time to shoot I told her not to be nervous and to have fun with it. When she finished she was grinning from ear to ear and said, ‘I see why you love this stuff’.”
 
Jackie continued, “I showed her how to hold the gun so she’d look a little more professional. And there is one scene where she was dragging one of the guys out and I helped her out with how to pick him up.”
 
Rihanna added, “We had this bad a** chick on set, her name is Jackie, she was also in the Navy. I was playing what she does in real life. She was all tattooed up and I just looked at her and I was like, ‘You are Raikes’. I watched her and really tried to get in her character. She’s fearless and she’s one of the boys and it’s really fun to explore that.”

Battleship director Peter Berg has revealed that he has plans to do a Battleship sequel, as long as the first Battleship movie is not a complete failure. Peter also admitted that the whole Battleship movie idea came from himself.

When asked by Den of Geek if they planned to do a potential Battleship sequel, Berg explained, “We do. But I won’t talk about that until we see how this plays. But yes, we have ideas.”
 
He then added, I pretty much put the story together. It was my idea to do it. I ended up with the basic idea of bringing aliens into the film, and creating this character called Hopper, and set it up with the writers – a couple of writers came in and out. But I knew that I wanted to make one of these films.”
 
Peter continued, “I wanted to make a big, fun summer movie, first and foremost. I didn’t want to make a dark, realistic war film. I’m getting ready to go and make a dark, realistic war film, I understand what those are, but I wanted this to be much different.”

Taylor Kitsch discusses his acting future
Taylor Kitsch discusses his acting future

Battleship actor Taylor Kitsch has taken the fact that he was the lead star in the big budget flop John Carter very well. In fact Taylor has admitted that it was just one of his many risky roles and he does not intend to change the way he approaches his art.

Kitsch explained, “I want to keep working with the best, keep going and be a better actor each time I go and dive into something. I want to be scared. I want to keep taking insane risks. I want to be scared because you’re going to grow through that whether you want to or not. I don’t want to play the same guy. I want to keep throwing curveballs to you guys and keep telling stories.”
 
Taylor Kitsch then went on to reveal what he likes to do in his spare time, when he is not working, admitting that, when you are working, you are very much out of the loop with the real world.
 
He added, “When I’m not acting, I try to be normal, play golf, play hockey. It’s funny because you’re in this little bubble when you’re working - you don’t read books, you don’t really keep up with the news, you’re just living that life. When you get out, you just kind of reacquaint yourselves with family and friends. You try and forget and just try and remember what reality feels like.”
