As America awaits with baited breath for the release of this year’s most anticipated drama, THE BATTLESHIPS, the cast is making the publicity rounds to get people siked as if we could even BE anymore siked. (Nod to Bandler Ching!) In a recent interview, newcomer Rihanna, perhaps best known for songs, explained how her work on the project was a pleasure in no small part because of director Peter Berg’s enthusiasm for keeping the set light and fun. How? Well, this is Hollywood, so obviously he did this with ON SET PRANKS. How else? How else do celebs even have fun these days? (Besides cocaine, grotesque and often self-sabotaging displays of wealth, athletic sex with multiple partners, lavish vacations, and alcohol.) But just wait until you hear what some of the pranks were on the set of There’s Something About Battleship. You’ll poop your pants with LAUGHTER because this is some FUNNY SHIT.

Peter Berg is a lot of fun. He’s wild. It spreads all the way down through his film and crew all the way back to the cast. We played pranks on each other constantly. Whether it was…you know…drawing boobs on a screen while Hopper had to read the screen out. He didn’t know and he was really good at keeping a straight face, I have to say.

You name a prank, they played it. Whether it was drawing boobs on a screen, or having a screen with a drawing of boobs on it, or just, you’d look at a screen and you know there’s not going to be a drawing of boobs on that screen this time probably but you’d look and there would be boobs on a screen. Normally, of course, this would make anyone LOSE THEIR MINDS, but the world’s finest actors manage, somehow, almost impossibly and certainly heroically, to keep a straight face. Another great story from behind the scenes. Everyone gets 10 million fucking dollars. (Via Cambio.)

  1. And here I was looking forward to this movie since the trailers started coming out 7 years ago; now that’s nothing compared to my anticipation of the blooper reel at the end!

    • I was talking to my sister last week. She has a boy who turned 7 and she bought him the Battleship game, and the box has “See the movie” on it and she said, “I didn’t know this game was based on a movie. It must be really old, so it’s weird they’d promote it on the box now.” And I said, “??????????????”

      It turns out when you are a suburban mom with three kids age 1-7, you are not aware of things like Battleship The Motion Picture. Whereas I can’t even IMAGINE not being fully aware of this for the past 7 years since the first stupid press release about it. WHAT A CULTURALLY IMPOVERISHED LIFE IN THE WILDERNESS SHE LEADS WITH HER LOVING FAMILY AND DECENT CAREER. So appalling, so hard to imagine, so something super wrong with me.

  2. “It spreads all the way down through his film and crew all the way back to the cast.”

    Whoa, who’s driving the Peter Berg Fun Train? That’s a pretty crazy route.

  3. I’m so tired of hearing about actors and the pranks they’ve pulled. I want to hear from the gaffer, the second unit AD, or the script supervisor, or literally ANY of the other jobs on a movie set. How do they like the actors’ pranks?

  4. I bet there were a lot of Stiffly Stifferson’s with all those boob drawings around.

  5. Pranking for the 1% sounds so boring.

  7. Somebody needs to tell Rihanna that Hopper is just the character’s name. His real name is Riggins.

  8. Haha, no that was all IMDB. I wanted to find out who this “Hopper” person who was on the receiving end of this AMAZING prank, thinking that surely she wasn’t referring to one of character name as if that was a real life person. Also, for a second there, I thought she was referring to pranking Dennis Hopper. Which would have really been quite the prank.

  9. How is that not sexual harrasment?

  10. FACT: Rihanna is a known member of the Illuminati.
    FACT: The Illuminati control the information about 2012.
    FACT: Rihanna likes pranks.
