Alexander Skarsgard thinks Riahnna is a hard worker.
The Battleship actor claims that when he worked with the "Where Have You Been?" singer on the movie, he was impressed with how she juggled her career in entertainment.
"God, I thought I worked a lot. We would shoot until late Friday night and she would jump on a plane and go to L.A. to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards in front of a billion people, and then get straight back on the plane and fly to Hawaii, and go to set Monday morning with a smile on her face."
When he is not appearing in his ongoing role as Eric Northman on True Blood the 35-year-old admits her likes to keep his work varied by appearing on the big screen with stars such as Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson and Brooklyn Decker, for example: "I spend seven months just playing Eric on True Blood. But when I'm on hiatus, when I get my five months off, I'm not looking to play the same character again."
Rihanna lives her life with "blinders" on.
The 24-year-old singer - who has courted controversy by recording with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown and reportedly smoking marijuana - has stopped worrying about what other people think of her because she knows she can't please everyone all of the time.
"Who wants to be bashed every day of their f**king lives? That's not fun. Today I could eat an apple, and ten people like it and one will not. The next day I could do shots and five people will like it and five won't. What's important is, you never know. You can't do it for the reaction because it's never going to be the same. I learned to live my life with the blinders on. At one point it was so bad, it became numb for me. It was a scary place to be."
Now when people say something negative, Rihanna tries to "decompartmentalize" her feelings.
Rihanna wants to watch Cheryl Cole "cleaning the floor" - naked. The "We Found Love" hitmaker has a crush on the British singer and is in awe of her beauty.
"I would just like to watch her work... Anything. Preferably cleaning things on the floor. Picking up stuff on the floor. Anything. Bending over. She's hot! I mean, literally... she's so beautiful," she told Esquire. Asked if Cheryl would be wearing anything, she added, "Oh, as if!"
Kim Kardashian banned Rihanna from Kanye West's dressing room during his recent London concerts.
The reality TV starlet doesn't want her 34-year-old boyfriend hanging out with other women on his own and with Rihanna's flirtatious reputation, she wasn't taking any chances when she wasn't at The O2 arena for his Watch the Throne tour shows with Jay-Z.
Kim is believed to have not been a fan of the "You Da One" singer since she was romantically linked to her brother Rob Kardashian several months ago. "Kim doesn't want women near him unless she is there - even friends. The fact Rihanna was linked to Rob probably didn't help," a source said.
However, it's not just Rihanna that Kim, 31, is jealous of. She is also said to have ordered him to leave a party in London last week after he spent too much time with other revellers instead of her. "Kim was all over Kanye at the start, but when he started to mix with other people she had a stern word and took him away from the party. He followed her orders with minimum fuss. He knows the deal," a source said.
