Academy Award winning producer Harvey Wenstein has dubbed "sensational" Rita Ora as his "biggest discovery"
Harvey Wenstein has dubbed "sensational" Rita Ora his "biggest discovery".
The Hollywood veteran - who produced the Academy Award-winning film 'Shakespeare in Love' - has given the 23-year-old 'Hot Right Now' singer his seal of approval after they worked together on his new film 'Southpaw', which also stars Jake Gyllenhaal.
He said: "Rita Ora did a sensational job.
"Her scene is breathtaking, because she's a very glamorous, beautiful woman.
"But we did the opposite, we made her up to look like a tough junkie.
"She is heartbreakingly real and wonderful and acting opposite Jake - who is riveting in this movie - she holds her own and then some."
Clearly smitten with the singer, Harvey told MailOnline: "I will work with Rita again and again and again. Personally, I think she's my biggest discovery as an actress this year."
'Southpaw' has an all-star cast, featuring Rachel McAdams, Naomie Harris and Forest Whitaker.
Rita has already made a name for herself in the industry after she finished filming scenes for the highly-anticipated movie 'Fifty Shades of Grey', which stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, and is scheduled for release in February 2015.
