Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the Next Big Star
HollywoodNews.com: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the Victoria’s Secret Model and ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ star is quickly gaining popularity, with fans and co-stars alike. In 2006, the 24-year old English native began modeling for Victoria’s Secret. In 2009, she got the coveted title of Victoria’s Secret Angel. Her 2010 commercial, directed by Michael Bay, can be seen below:
Without any previous acting experience, Michael Bay offered Rosie the role of Carly in the third installment Transformers. While she is best known for replacing Megan Fox, her character Carly is actually new to the franchise. Her co-star, Tyrese Gibsons tells MTVNews.com, “Rosie is going to surprise a lot of people.” Rosie’s other co-star and love-interest in the film, Shia LaBeouf explains, “She owns her sexuality and she doesn’t shy away from it.”
While her first movie opens this week, her modeling career is still booming. Fashion photographer, Rankin, created a compilation of photographs he shot of Rosie and titled it ‘Ten Times Rosie’. According to Hollywood.com, the book celebrates “the work of Thomas Wylde and Rosie’s sense of style and empowerment.” Rankin states “Rosie really is the model of the moment. She’s the actress of the moment. She’s definitely going to become something much, much bigger.”
MTV Networks’ Nextmovie.com included Rosie in the ‘25 Breakout Stars to Watch For in 2011’. She also won the ‘Female Star of Tomorrow’ award at CinemaCon in Las Vegas this past June. Whether Rosie catches the acting bug or sticks to her modeling roots is up in the air, but for now, we will just have to wait and see.
Do you think she will be in more films?
