They are both fashion icons in their own right. And Cara Delevingne has opened up about her friendship with Rihanna as the pair star together in Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. The model and actress, 24, plays Laureline opposite Rihanna’s Bubble in the other-worldly flick.

Speaking on british morning show Lorraine, the star said: ‘It’s been amazing. We met at a fashion show and five years later we’re doing a Luc Besson film. ‘We all grew up watching his films so to be appearing in them as leading ladies is incredible.’

Valerian follows the adventures of two time agents and lovers, played by Cara and Dane DeHaan, as they police a 28th century space station called Alpha.
Cara gushed about how much she enjoyed playing a strong female character.

She said: ‘It’s pretty amazing because aside from the visual effects it has this amazing story with these two characters. It’s very visual and very entertaining.
‘Laureline is certainly strong, her and Valerian together make an incredible team… they don’t realise they need each other until they realise they might lose each other.
‘There are so many different aliens – every alien has been thought out and drawn 50 years ago, through Luc’s imagination.’

Earlier this month Delevingne also said it was a blast working with the Grammy-winning singer on the film while speaking to ELLE. “We’ve been friends for five or six years. The first time we met, I was a model doing the Victoria’s Secret show and she was performing”. “Five years later, we’re both doing a Luc Besson film. It’s such a great thing to be able to do this with a friend.”

She also shared a funny anecdote about Besson trying to get Rihanna to get emotional while filming a scene. “There was a moment when he said, ‘OK, so how do I make her vulnerable? Pretend your album doesn’t do well.’ And she was like, ‘You clearly don’t know how to make me upset, because I wouldn’t give a s–t.’”

A Look At Rihanna’s Acting History, From ‘Bring It On: All or Nothing’ to ‘Ocean’s 8’

The trailer for the highly anticipated Ocean’s Trilogy sequel/spin-off, Ocean’s 8was released today (Dec. 19) and features an all-star cast of numerous badass women — including everybody’s favorite Barbadian triple-threat, Rihanna.

The iconic superstar has proved time and time again that she is a force to be reckoned since her early days, through her music, fashion and beauty ventures, but also her various acting roles, which have truly showed her versatility and superb talent.

From early work such as Bring It On: All or Nothing to this past year’s sci-fi adventure Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Rihanna has proved she has what it takes to make it in the acting world. Here’s a look back at Rihanna’s roles in both film and television.

Bring It On: All or Nothing (2006)

The cheerleading comedy finds a transfer student trying to join the cheerleading squad of a rough high school, where she not only faces off against the new school’s head cheerleader, but against her former school in a cheer competition as well. Rihanna makes a cameo appearance in the film, where she announces the cheerleading competition and declares that the winners shall appear in a music video with her. A small role, yes, but as good a starting place for Rihanna as any.

Battleship

In this sci-fi action film, we find Rihanna far from the comforts of the stage, thrust into a war filled with uncertainty. The 2012 film based off the board game of the same name follows a fleet of ships that battle a series of unfamiliar foes, where Rihanna stars as Cora Raikes, a weapons specialist aboard one of the ships. Director Peter Berg stated in an interview with GQ that he came up with the idea to cast Rihanna after he realized she could act when she performed a skit on Saturday Night Live. Rihanna later went on to state that she accepted the role because she wanted to “do something badass.”

This Is the End

The 2013 end of the world comedy directed by Seth Rogen features a hilarious appearance from Rihanna, who is attending a party at James Franco’s house where she and numerous other celebrities are faced with the doom that will be brought on from the impending apocalypse. Though brief, Rihanna’s cameo showcases her comedic chops and versatility as an actress.

Annie

Starring in a movie-within-a-movie, Rihanna plays the villain of “MoonQuake Lake,” the flick that Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis go to see together in the musical adaptation. The fake film also co-stars Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.

This 2015 film from DreamWorks finds Rihanna cast in the lead role as Gratuity “Tip” Tucci, a teenage girl who befriends an alien on the run from his own people. During a round of press interviews for the film, Rihanna and her costars Jim Parsons and Steve Martin were asked about the possibility of life on other planets — to which Rihanna suggests keeping an open mind.

Bates Motel

On the hit A&E series, Rihanna starred as Marion Crane, the troubled secretary who played an iconic role in the 1960 horror classic Psycho, which the series is based off of. Taking over the character from Janet Leigh, Rihanna brought a modern and more relatable version to the screen for viewers to identify with. Viewers who were hoping for a remake of the infamous murder scene were out of luck, however, as Rihanna’s version of Crane survived and her lover, Sam Loomis, meet his untimely demise instead.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Meet Bubble, the shape-shifting burlesque dancer portrayed by Rihanna in this fantasy film about two special operatives who must race to identify the evil that threatens the future of their home and the universe. Director Luc Besson contacted RiRi’s manager to offer her the small but crucial role, to which she accepted, and shot around her jam-packed touring and promotions schedule.

Ocean’s Eight

Set to be released Summer 2018, Ocean’s Eight will find Sandra Bullock’s character, Debbie Ocean, attempting to pull off a heist at New York City’s star-studded Met Gala, following in the footsteps of her infamous family. Rihanna will star as Nine Ball, a computer genius and hacker who aids Debbie in her quest, and will star along other such acting stars as Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling and Sarah Paulson.
