Rihanna Does Her Own Stunts in New Movie

Rihanna Does Her Own Stunts in New Movie

The pop star is just as bold as she is beautiful on the set of "Battlefield"

Published June 1, 2011

Rihanna is proving her daredevil reputation to be true on the set of her upcoming film, Battlefield. The singer apparently didn’t think her stunt double was brave enough to jump off a ship and rescue an actor, so she opted to do it herself. Director Peter Berg said, "She dove off the deck, slammed herself on a metal grate, grabbed an actor and dragged him back to the raft.”

Berg added, "Then she looked up at me and had this big smile on her face—she did it all better than the stuntwoman! There's definitely not a confidence issue with Rihanna." While Rihanna managed to pull of the stunt successfully, she had to plead to continue to do other stunts. The pop star told Cosmopolitan magazine, "I kept going, 'Put me in there!' For me, it's tougher to be vulnerable than to be tough. The only thing I'm secretly terrified of is childbirth!"

Battlefield is due in theaters early next year.
