Rihanna denies link to Bodyguard remake

Rihanna has denied she is starring in a re-make of 'The Bodyguard'.

When asked by OK! magazine if she was interested in reprising Whitney Houston's role in the film, she said: 'Absolutely not. I want to separate the two.'

She added: 'I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time, because you can never look at them as anybody else.'

However, Rihanna said that she was interested in pursuing acting.

'I want to play a character, my whole life is playing 'Rihanna', being a singer won't be a stretch for me.

'I like challenges and being an actor is playing a role, being able to step into somebody else's shoes, that's the excitement.'
