Talking about how he bagged the role in the film, Mads Mikkelsen shared,

“Yeah, I don’t know how it landed. I never asked her, She must have seen something I’ve done, I believe something Danish. She called my agent and it’s like, ‘Do you want to be in a Rihanna film?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah’. I respect Rihanna, but I’m not big on music so obviously, I was kind of complacent. And then I heard some of her music, ‘Oh yeah she’s cool’. My son, for the first time, I think was impressed with what I do. He wanted to come with me on set and he is a young teenager, I don’t think so.”

Mads Mikkelsen is happy to be Rihanna’s B*tch

“She was so sweet, and then she’s so good.”


Talking about bizarre visuals in the film, he recalled,

“It became a really crazy video. I didn’t like the the push of things, in the sense that there was a story. I think we shot 10 percent of that story because it went in all kinds of crazy directions all of a sudden. So, it became more like an idea of this, as opposed to a solid, clean story. So, it was very visual, but yeah I’m pretty proud of being her b*tch. That’s fine.”

Rihanna and Mads Mikkelsen’s video B*tch Better Have My Money released in 2015. It was written by Rihanna and Bibi Bourelly. The producers include Deputy, Kanye West, Travis Scott, and WondaGurl were additional producers.
