[R] Rscript, hashbang, and arguments

I have a bunch of R scripts which have the hash bang !/usr/bin/env Rscript and I typically run these scripts by passing in some parameters like this:

./nameOfRScript arg1 arg2 ...

I know Rscript has the option to run in --vanilla. Where exactly do I insert the --vanilla option? When I do something like this:

./nameOfRScript --vanilla arg1 arg2 ...

And I try to access the commandArgs, the first argument is --vanilla which isn't what I want. I tried to do commandArgs(trailingOnly=TRUE) with

./nameOfRScript --vanilla --args arg1 arg2 ...

But I sitll have the first argument as --vanilla. Does anyone know how to get around this? Thanks,
