Rihanna 'really enjoying' film debut

Rihanna confesses she is having fun on the set of the sci-fi invasion movie 'Battleship', which follows a group of naval ships fighting off an alien invasion looking for something beneath Earth's oceans.

However, the 22-year-old singer who is making her acting debut, admits her co-star Aleksander Skarsgard is "not very talkative".

She told MTV News: "It's really good, really good. I'm really enjoying it actually. I like it.

"Aleksander is really cool, just laid-back. He doesn't get in the way. He's not very talkative, but he's a really cool guy and that's to everybody - not just the cast."

Rihanna was pictured shooting scenes for the movie with co-star Taylor Kitsch in Hawaii earlier this month and was seen wearing a navy officer outfit.

Liam Neeson and Brooklyn Decker will also play leading roles in the film, which is being directed by Peter Berg.

'Battleship' is due to hit cinemas in May 2012.
