Rihanna admits that she could not stop drooling over Alexander Skarsgard while filming the movie "Battleship."
"Alexander Skarsgard is so hot," the "Umbrella" singer told British More! magazine of her co-star. "I had to keep my game face. I could stare at him all day long. I was just watching him on set."
Rihanna says that she was eventually able to lift her jaw off the floor, though, and interact with the "True Blood" star.
"He was really sweet," she said.
While Rihanna was taken with Skarsgard's looks, the Swedish actor was equally enthralled by Rihanna's work ethic.
"She’s really diligent and I’m impressed," he told GQ.com last year. "We would work and then she’d fly to LA to perform at the MTV Music Awards and then fly back red eye, land, go straight to set, work all day. No complaints, nothing. She’s really solid."
While Rihanna may act tough on stage, or when holding weaponry in her new film, the Barbadian pop star says that acting for the first time left her feeling very vulnerable.
"I was completely intimidated by the other actors," she said, before revealing that another male co-star was particularly helpful in soothing her nerves. "But I had a lot of scenes with Taylor Kitsch and he helped me out a lot along the way."
Rihanna is currently in Australia promoting "Battleship" alongside Kitsch. Meanwhile, much to Rihanna's chagrin, Skarsgard headed back to Los Angeles after attending the film's premiere in Japan last week.
