"Snot Bubbles" Got Brooklyn Decker Her 'Battleship' Role

Pin It
Just when you thought it was your connections or experience that lands you an awesome job... Ask Brooklyn Decker what landed her a Battleship role and she will tell you it wasn't all about her killer good looks or awesome talent...

Nope, the blond bombshell had to have a little bit more than that for this one.

Brooklyn and Battleship director Peter Berg recently talked to us about how she snagged the role of Sam in the upcoming film.

Convinced she wasn't strong enough, during auditions, Berg told her that there was only one way she could get the tough-girl gig...

"The only way to get the role and prove I was strong enough was if I had tears coming out of my eyes and snot bubbles coming out of my nose."

Uhh, gross!

Brooklyn totally did what she had to do and produced tears and snot bubbles like it was her j-o-b and landed the role!

The snot bubble audition wasn't the only Battleship silliness going on, Rihanna admitted to us that there were tons of on-set pranks too.

Don't forget to check out Battleship...it hits theaters on Friday!
