Rihanna is Neeson fan
Wednesday, 11 April 2012
Rihanna asked Liam Neeson to send her a picture of them together because is such a big fan of his.
The two stars appear alongside each other in the movie Battleship, which is Rihanna’s first foray onto the big screen. She was astounded when she heard Liam was to be one of her co-stars, especially when he told her his sons loved her music.
“He asked me for a picture with him to send to his son and I was like, ‘Send me this picture, I want it too!’” she laughed to Company magazine.
Rihanna cites the 2008 film Taken as one of her favourites. Liam appears in it and it was then that he really came to her attention.
The singer couldn’t believe it when she was told Liam would also be in Battleship and initially struggled to work alongside him.
“I fell in love with him when I watched Taken and I was so star-struck, I couldn’t even look at him on set. I just had to shut down completely,” she said. © Cover Media
