Talk about “blink and you’ll miss her”! Poptart and Rimmel London spokesperson Rita Ora has been touting her role in 50 Shades of Grey for what seems like YEARS – telling the world they were going to see a WHOLE NEW RITA ORA, and hoping it would lead to a HUGE NEW CAREER in Hollywood. Unfortunately, those who have seen initial screenings ahead of the movie’s release date, were puzzled by how little she was actually in the movie. Ninety seconds. Yep. Rita Ora has grand total of 90 seconds of screen time.
The Daily Beast‘s Marlow Stern wrote: ‘There are a few cheap shots in the film, like the much-ballyhooed presence of pop singer Rita Ora, who occupies the screen for a grand total of five seconds and utters one line in French.” Poor dear.
She’s putting on a brave face, though. Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: ‘Everyone is going to have their own opinions. But for me this was such a great cameo to be involved in, and even though I’m only in it for a little bit, it’s opened the door to a lot of movie things that I haven’t actually announced yet.’
Last week she held a private screening for some pals, posting a picture on Instagram and writing: ‘Guess who just watched a private screening of 50 shades of grey? We did! I was so excited! I couldn’t wait to hear their opinions on my first little mini cameo! my closest and dearest came with me!
