Rihanna's Oscar dreams
Singer Rihanna who is acting in Valerian and Ocean s Eight says while nobody works especially to win awards like Grammy or Oscar it s always nice to get some validation.
She spoke about her life as an actor in an interview to the The Sun on Sunday reported femalefirst.co.uk.
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. Though she didn t method act for the movie she finds it interesting.
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.
The 28-year-old star insisted she will never act like a diva on a movie set.
I offer myself like clay to directors. You don t do diva on film sets.
