Inside Rihanna's Not-So-Verbose Battleship Role

Rihanna made her acting debut in Battleship, if you can call a role that involves just 68 lines (many of them less than five words, and one of them actually just a "heavy sigh") "acting." On Vulture, Sarah Lawson lists every single word uttered by Rihanna in the movie. Here are a few that made us laugh:

  • "Chicken!"
  • "Kentucky Fried Chicken!"

  • "You look like Colonel Sanders, actually."
  • "Weird, man."
  • "Real bad idea, Lieutenant."
  • "Lieutenant, get up."
  • "Lieutenant."
  • "Ahhhhhhh!"
  • "Ahhhhhhh!"
  • "Yo, hey!"
  • "Mahalo, motherfu—"
  • "Sucker’s really jumping around."
  • "Boom."
  • "Awesome."
Check out the entire list at Vulture. (More Battleship stories.)
