Actress Britt Robertson is one of those stars who is always very in demand and very busy, yet never really seems to make the big headlines that the A list Hollywood stars do, despite the fact that she has the acting talent to rival anyone in the business. That has never been more clear than in preparation for her new movie The Space Between Us, which Britt has admitted that she had to learn a lot of new skills for, as the director wanted to get the most out of her.
Robertson explained, "He wanted me to be tough, he wanted be to able to beat up a bunch of big dudes, he wanted me to be able to ride the motorbike, he wanted me to able to play the piano, sing - which I don't do. At all."
She added, "I always promised myself that I would never take a role where I had to sing. Unfortunately, I found out that I was going to have to sing AFTER I took the movie. He asked a lot of me, which I like. It's good to force yourself into these uncomfortable situations and learn new skills."
While Britt Robertson plays the female lead in The Space Between Us, Asa Butterfield plays the male lead, with a supporting cast including such top Hollywood stars as Janet Montgomery, Carla Gugino, and Gary Oldman, among others. The Space Between Us has been directed by Peter Chelsom, with the movie out now in both the US and the UK.
