The 'S&M' singer has credited director Peter Berg with helping her in the new sci-fi epic.
Rihanna has described her upcoming acting debut in Battleship as a "huge" film and says it was an "impeccable experience" working with director Peter Berg.
The 'We Found Love' singer makes her debut alongside big name actors like Liam Neeson and Taylor Kitsch in the sci-fi epic, which stars Rihanna as navy weapons Officer Raikes.
"It's a huge film," Rihanna explained. "It was an exciting experience for my first time, and working with Peter Berg.
"I could not have handpicked, if it was my choice, a better director to work with on my first film," she told Ryan Seacrest this week. "His energy just filters through all the way to the set, through the crew, the cast, and he really helped me."
The 'You Da One' singer added: "It was immense. It was an impeccable experience."
Rihanna is expected to premiere the music video for her Drake collaboration 'Take Care' later this month.
Battleship is due out in cinemas on 18th May.
