Sandra Bullock & Cast Of ‘Ocean’s 8’ Share What It Was Like On Set With Rihanna

The Oscar winners were totally star struck.

Published June 7, 2018

Other celebrities outside of the world of music are given the opportunity to work beside a global pop star like Rihanna, so when the A-list cast of Ocean's 8 were living this fantasy of many, they didn't take it for granted.

In fact, several of them considered it one of the most rewarding parts of filming the highly anticipated movie.

Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarach Paulson, Mindy Kiling and more shared, exclusively with BET.com, what it was really like working so closely with RiRi. When asked what the best part of working with the "Diamonds" singer was, Bullock gave a direct response.

"That it was Rihanna," she said before Awkwafina added, "Being around her."

Expounding a bit more on what the Rihanna aura is like, Bullock described her as "still."

"She knows how to harness her talent and her power," she continued. "And she's still. You'll crack a joke and you're like, 'Is she getting it? Does she hate me?' And then she'll give you a response and you're like, 'Oh!'... I think we all got stupid and giddy every time she walked on set. We wanted to be the one she liked the best when she walked on set."

Sarah Paulson also added that aside from being calm, the singer is also "thoughtful" and present.

"She's thoughtful and quiet and she takes everything in," Sarah Paulson added.
