Navy officer inspired Rihanna

When Rihanna watches her debut performance on the big screen in the film Battleship, she has one woman in particular to thank for her performance as tough Navy heroine Cora Raikes.
Jacqueline Carrizosa, a 22-year-old former petty officer on the SS Ronald Reagan, is the inspiration behind the Umbrella singer’s character and was her confidente and adviser during filming in Hawaii.
The weapons expert taught Rihanna how to fire powerful, automatic machine guns and walk, talk and breath like a sailor. (Rihanna Daily)
