Tracy Morgan GETS KISSY With Fiancee Megan Wollover + Rihanna SURPRISES Fans At "Battleship" Screening + Kerry Washington's "Scandal" Preview

 

Tracy Morgan stopped by "The Late Show" recently and was spotted getting kissy with his fiance. See their pics inside as well as pics of Rihanna at a Battleship screening and dishing on her movie plus Kerry Washington's "Scandal" preview.

Actor Tracy Morgan and fiance Megan Wollover were spotted outside the Ed Sullivan Theater yesterday.

The pair were there for Tracy to tape an appearance on the 'Late Show with David Letterman.'

 

And over in London......

 

Rihanna was seen arriving, in a Stella McCartney London Evening collection dress, at the BBC for a 'Battleship' screening last night.  And surprised fans who won the chance to attend:
 

She greeted fans with co-stars Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker and director Peter Berg at Cineworld in Haymarket, London.

 

And during a sit-down interview about the flick at this week's photocall:

 

Rihanna sat down with Kate Garraway to dish on her big screen debut, her music and growing up in Barbados.  Here are the highlights:

 

On her acting debut in Battleship
It was nerve-wracking really, scary, to go into something so new not really knowing what to expect or what to do. It was a learning experience. Peter Berg was really, really good at helping with that, he didn't even give me a chance to think about it before I was saying lines on the first day...and that helped to cut to the chase.

On whether she gets scared/nervous
I get nervous, I get that anxiety just before I'm about to do something big or when everyone's going to be looking at me.

On her success
I'm very competitive with myself, I don't like staying in the same place- I like growth. I want to get better, the next step always has to be upward, or forward. I'm relentless in that way when it comes to my work, I feel guilty stopping for a little bit, but sometimes it's good to stop. I noticed that this year when I actually had time to stop in January because that was the first time I really took time off for myself.

On body-confidence
I don't think anyone really is 100%, I mean you get comfortable with the fact that, that's your body and it is what it is. That I had to learn, doing enough topless shoots with GQ and Esquire. You just have to accept your body, you may not love it all the way, but you just have to be comfortable with it. You just want something else, that someone else has, but that doesn't mean what you have isn't beautiful. No one is every 100% "I'm the bomb.com" from head to toe.

On how growing up in Barbados gave her thick skin
A lot of the reason why I am the way that I am and my character has a lot to do with my culture. It really helped to have a thick skin coming from Barbados. My upbringing, I definitely had to learn fast how to ignore things or not let it bother me. From the time I was very young I was teased about being bi-racial, that was one of the first things I dealt with, then it went on throughout high school, if it wasn't one thing it was the other thing. In my home, a lot of the things I saw, that definitely helped prepare me for this world.

 

And on television....

Don't know why those silly

Don't know why those silly kids teased RiRi about being Bi- Racial when they could clearly see she, her mom & dad are all Black. Also, their are lots of mixed ethnicity's in the islands which is not at all unusual just like in America & Canada and Europe. One other thing....I am African American and whenever I'm in any of the Islands in the Western Hemisphere I notice how the women are all pretty no matter what their complexions or hair type etc...They can be 300lbs, dark as twilight or thin as a twig or Albino with freckles and something is attractive about them all.

First up, let me me say I

First up, let me me say I like Rihanna but this interview was painful! I have never heard her sound so inarticulate to the point of coming across as borderline retarded. I don't know if she was over-thinking every answer before she spoke or what but that was a hot mess. I've seen Kate Garraway interview many people and she's hardly a rigorous reporter but I got the sense that even she was slowing down for Rihanna, almost talking to her like she was a simpleton. I hate to say it 'cause I really don't want to stir up the B-Hive but really whenever anyone is tempted to brand Beyonce robotic and stilted they need to take a look at this interview and have a seat. I've seen Rihanna in other interviews and she's been so much more spirited but they've been before a studio audience. Maybe when she's not performing to a crowd she gets stuck?

I agree Rihanna definitely

I agree Rihanna definitely struggles to get her point across in interviews...

This is only one interview.

This is only one interview. Rihanna is only human and she should be allowed to make mistakes. If this were her 5 interviews that was painful to watch, then I can understand being hard on her. Another thing the press junket for a movie is quite different than one for music. Music is her moneymaker. With movies, she is brand new at it and she may not be familiar with all the back to back press she has to do in a few days as she does more movies her interviews should get better.
Big Nose Big Lips Tar Baby's picture

Yes, press junkets for movies

Yes, press junkets for movies are different, they tend to be repetitive with back to back interviewers asking the same point. However, I don't think the excuse is valid in this case. 1. She's been in the game for 7 years, she's been interviewed hundreds of times and knows the drill. 2. She's not a lead in film, there is no pressure on her to carry it. 3. The interview only focused a small percentage on the movie and her role and actually most of the interview focused on her and her personal life. 4. Maybe she's not that articulate when she's the sole focus of the interview and there's no distraction of an audience or host vying for attention. 5. This was less about making a mistake, more about her not coming across very well. It's not a mistake if you can't articulate yourself, it means you're inarticulate.

She has been in the music

She has been in the music game for 7 years and now starting out in the movie business. They are two totally different industries! Movie actors can't go do an interview for the music industry and nail the interview because they are more familiar with movies. You see alot of moviestars presenting at music awards and they look and act awkward because they are out of their element. Same goes with musicians when they go into movies.
Big Nose Big Lips Tar Baby's picture

I see you missed the point

I see you missed the point yet again, clearly it's too complex for you. Maybe you should go back and watch the interview again. She is uncomfortable talking throughout the interview, not just about the film but also about herself. Anyway, that's my final attempt to convey it, it's exhausting communicating with people who can't grasp a simple comment.

I HOPE EVERYONE WATCHES

I HOPE EVERYONE WATCHES "SCANDAL" on April 5, 2012 (Thursday night) at 10pm on ABC. : ) The sneak peek with Kerry Washington just shows that even though we (African-Americans) tend to get the recycled, stereotypical, and demeaning roles in Hollywood. Sometimes we have great roles and I believe Kerry Washington's character portrays a strong African-American woman with self-respect, qualified, and powerful. I will be watching this show and I HOPE YOU GUYS & GALS WILL TOO!!! ; )

I hope that majority of

I hope that majority of people posting comments on this site are anything other than BLACK; because some of the hateful, malicious, hurtful comments that some of you make - ALL THE TIME - are so depressing and pessimistic. RIHANNA happens to be a "young" woman of color who has not forgotten her roots, trendy, and is doing what she enjoys doing. BE SUPPORTIVE!!! Or keep the negativity to yourself..........some of you who were boohooing over Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson are "probably" some of the very ones who were speaking so abusively about them while they were STILL LIVING.................Oh and I caught that side eye Taylor Kitsch - hopefully she too isn't jealous of Ri-Ri's fan base. I AM VERY HAPPY FOR ANYONE WHO IS SUCCESSFUL AND GIVE BACK TO HELPING OTHERS - IT INSPIRES ME TO DO BETTER!!!! I LOVE MY PEOPLE!!!! WHAT ABOUT YOU?

OMFG!! YAL NEED TO STFU WITH

OMFG!! YAL NEED TO STFU WITH THAT BI RACIAL MESS!!the girl NEVER said she is BI-RACIAL...crosses man!!! What she meant for all u SIMPLETONS is that she was teased and called bi racial because in the carribbean being light skin ppl assume that you are mixed with something. I AM LIGHT SKIN WITH CURLY ASS HAIR and ppl assume that i am mixed just based on that ,when my father is DARK AS NIGHT and my mom is a bit light. But ppl try to take that im black away from me just because i have "pretty"hair. so i understand what rihanna is saying!!! PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND!! SHE NEVER SAID "I RIHANNA AM BIRACIAL" ..........SIMPLE ASSES

*reaching* But nice try...

*reaching* But nice try... She said she was teased for being biracial. Meaning, she identifies herself as biracial.

but even if that was what she

but even if that was what she meant, what is it to you?? do you know the racial makeup of her father, or whether or not he's white? you can't just look on someone and determined their genetic makeup. Maybe her father identifies as white, maybe he is. WHo knows?

"BATTLESHIP" WILL FAIL..!!

"BATTLESHIP" WILL FAIL..!! "Battleship" cost $200-Million to produce. The 'get-to-theater' (P/A) costs will be FAR-more: usually, at least, EQUAL TO the budget/production cost. So, to get "Battleship" to theaters will cost $400-Million. But "Battleship" has ALREADY been projected to under-perform: Boxoffice.com's projected returns of what "Battleship" will do: Opening Weekend: $46-Million | Total Domestic Gross: $125-Million. Using "film industry" metric, "Battleship" will have to return $580-Million to be considered "NOT A FAILURE". It'll have to do $455-Million in overseas receipts to, again, "NOT TO BE CONSIDERED A FAILURE"! To be considered a "success", "Battleship", given its $400-Million 'get-to-theater' cost, will have to totally return $700-Million!! That'll mean, using boxoffice's numbers: $575-Million from overseas screen! That's OVER 1/2 BILLION DOLLARS!! http://www.boxoffice.com/statistics/movies/battleship-2011?q=Battleship X,Y,"and Z" -- OUT..!!
