Rihanna Slapping Michael Cera Apparently Didn’t Take ‘Much Convincing,’ But He Still Has ‘No Regrets’
Written by B87FM on June 17, 2023
Michael Cera’s recent interview with Rolling Stone revealed quite a lot, including having a marriage and divorce pact with Aubrey Plaza at one point. He also revealed his thoughts about a particular scene in the 2013 movie, This Is The End, where Rihanna slaps him.
The two had reportedly discussed the scene before it happened — as Cera’s character (playing himself) slaps Rihanna’s butt while she’s talking to Jason Segel, which causes her to hit him in the face. “Shut the f*ck up, Jason,” Cera responds in the original clip. “We’re playing a game.”
As part of the story, Rihanna also agreed to it if she apparently got to hit back.
“I thought it would look a lot better if she hit me,” Cera said. “I don’t think it took much convincing to get her to do it. I just thought it would look a lot better than a fake slap would because you can really feel it. It just looks a lot funnier!”
“The take that is in the movie, she really did hit my ear, which was disorienting,” he added. “But I have no regrets. I didn’t lose any hearing over it, fortunately!”
