Rihanna Taking Acting Classes for New Role

Rihanna is going to make her acting debut later this year in the upcoming film Personal Protection, and the songbird is reportedly taking acting lessons hoping to woo critics.

Rihanna is currently in New York City working on her new album, but she's also setting a lot of time aside for professional acting lessons.

A source tells the NY Daily News, "Rihanna will start filming Personal Protection later this year.

"She's not ready, acting-wise, yet, so she's meeting with a coach."

If you all remember, there were rumors earlier this year that Rihanna was going to star in a remake of The Bodyguard, but those rumors were quickly shot down by her camp.

Sounds like all the press she got from the rumor made her decide that she's ready to try her hand at acting. Do you think she's talented enough to make it as an actress?
