Rihanna Won't Star In The Bodyguard Remake

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Last week saw reports suggest that Rihanna was being lined up to take on Whitney Houston's role in the highly anticipated remake of the 90's classic, The Bodyguard.

However, the Only Girl (In The World) star has denied the claims, revealing that she is not interested in pursuing singing acting roles.

In an interview with OK! magazine, Rihanna was asked if she was interested in being part of the remake to which she answered: "Absolutely not. I want to separate the two."

She elaborated: "I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time because you can never look at them as anybody else."

Of her fledgling acting career, Rihanna continued: “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."

Rihanna is set to star in Battleship later this year. Do you think she has what it takes to be a successful actress?

Hello! Judy Garland A star is born" was a remake too. It was not the original.
The original was done in 1937 with actress Janet Gaynor.

Barbara Streisand did it in 1976.

I doubt Judy cares after all this time if Beyonce did it since she did a remake herself.

See, Hollywood?! Even she agrees there doesn't need to be a remake!!

Yes, that's how I choose to view this. :P

demi32 7th-Mar-2011 11:48 pm (UTC)
This movie should not be remade right now at all.

I don't think she'll be a good actress but I like her attitude towards movies.
starchain 7th-Mar-2011 11:55 pm (UTC)
I like her a lot, Rated R is one of my fav albums of the past two years but the girl doesn't have that many talents. She's gorgeous, she makes fun music and she has a great spirit but other than that I don't think she is a complete performer capable of singing, dancing and acting.

Just stop, Hollywood.
conveythemelody 7th-Mar-2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
Why would they even think about remaking this?
selling_alibis 7th-Mar-2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
The Bodyguard wasn't even that good of a movie. The soundtrack was so much better.
