MUSIC super star Rihanna and her Battleship co-star Brooklyn Decker had a bit of cheeky fun today ahead of tonight's red carpet premiere at Luna Park.
The young beauties wore their own T-shirts featuring amusing old photos of the film's director Peter Berg while talking to Australian press.
"This journalist came into an interview of ours - I think in London - and he had a Rihanna T-shirt and Brooklyn said 'I'm getting a Rihanna T-shirt' and I said 'no we should get Pete Berg T-shirts'," Rihanna said.
"So it was her idea and we ended up getting them printed and the whole cast has them.
"I cannot wait to see his face."
Rihanna paired the shirt with black leather Alexander Wang shorts and chunky gold jewellery, while Decker wore hers with dark jeans and nude heels.
It's a far cry from the Barbados native's first meeting with Berg, who directed Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom and Hancock.
"I had no idea who he was. I knew his face but I didn't know he was a director. I didn't even know it was a movie meeting I was in," she said.
"So he had little replicas of the aliens on this desk and I'm cracking up because he's calling them thugs. I thought 'this guy is so weird, why does he have all these toys in his room?'
"By the end of the whole meeting I had obviously figured out we were talking about a film but only at the end of the meeting I knew that he was the director, and it made me say 'oh (expletive)'. Let me backtrack everything I did in this meeting for the last hour. I hope I've got this part."
The big-budget action flick is Rihanna's first acting role and sees her starring opposite John Carter star Taylor Kitsch, True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard and Liam Neeson.
