Jacqueline Carrizosa is Rihanna’s technical director, weapons expert and a member of the Navy SEALS herself, was selected to help Rihanna train and get ready for her role as a tough officer in the Navy in the upcoming action packed film “Battleship.” Jacqueline, a former gunner’s mate and search & rescue swimmer, says “Rihanna was really cool, she definitely was an open book, she’s not afraid to say how she feels and what she want to tell people.” She also added “She’s no fake; she’s still true to herself.” Carrizosa, who is 22, and part Mexican, also had the opportunity to meet and interact with other actors like Brooklyn Decker, who she weirdly convinced to jump off a cliff into a river. She says “They were all really cool; I went hiking with a bunch of them when they weren’t filming. We came to this cliff with a 20- to 30-foot jump. I just ran off the cliff and convinced Brooklyn Decker to jump off. They were all normal people.” The female Navy SEALS hopes to get more opportunities in this line of work. She says there have been talks about it but nothing has been confirmed. She also said she loves teaching so she will be great for the job.
