Michael Cera has revealed that getting slapped by Rihanna was "great", but joked that it didn't bring them closer together.

The Arrested Development star, who appears in apocalyptic comedy This Is The End alongside Seth Rogen and James Franco, finds himself on the receiving end of the chart-topping superstar's hand.

"It was great. It was a nice way to get to know Rihanna, although I don't feel like I really got to know her at all," he admitted.

Michael - who plays himself in the ensemble movie - admitted that she was lovely to work with.

"She's wonderful. A wonderful amalgamation of a lady," he said.

Emma Watson, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel, Jason Segel and Paul Rudd also co-star in This Is The End, which opens in cinemas on June 28.

Michael next reprises his role as George Michael Bluth, alongside Jason Bateman, Alia Shawkat and Tony Hale in the fourth series of Arrested Development, which begins on Netflix on May 26.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Take a friend's advice with a pinch of salt. Although you love this dreamer dearly, they don't have a realistic grasp of the situation. Trust your instincts instead. You've always taken great pride in your work ethic. Abandoning a project before it is finished will weigh on your conscience. Do the best you can with a severely reduced budget. The results won't be thrilling, but they will be respectable. Nobody will blame you for having to make bricks from straw.More
