Rosie Alice Huntington-Whiteley (born 18 April 1987) is an English model and actress. She is best known for her work for lingerie retailer Victoria's Secret and Burberry, and also for her role as Carly Spencer in the 2011 film Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the third installment in the Transformers film series.


    Early life and family

    Huntington-Whiteley was born at the Freedom Fields Hospital, in Plymouth, Devon. Her mother, Fiona (née Jackson), is a fitness instructor, and her father, Charles Andrew Huntington-Whiteley, is a chartered surveyor. Her paternal great-grandfather, Eric Huntington-Whiteley, was from a known English political family, and was the son of politician Sir Herbert Huntington-Whiteley, 1st Baronet; Eric married Rosie's great-grandmother, Enid Kohn, who was from a family of Polish Jews who emigrated to Britain in the 1870s. Rosie's paternal grandmother, Gillian, who was also from a Jewish family, was the daughter of Jacob Franks, a prominent surgeon in Sussex.

    Huntington-Whiteley grew up on a farm near Tavistock, Devon. Educated at Tavistock College, she later stated that she was bullied and teased at school for having a double-barrelled name, small breasts and full lips.


    While a 15 years old student, she undertook work experience at West End, London-based model agency Profile, before taking her GCSEs. Signed after graduating in summer 2003 aged 16, her first modelling session was for a Levi's jeans commercial. She got her first big break in January 2004 when she travelled to New York for a shoot with Teen Vogue. She later made her catwalk debut alongside Naomi Campbell in New York in Spring 2004, and was then photographed by Bruce Weber for Abercrombie & Fitch.

    In early 2006, she was tipped to be "the next Kate Moss" by fashion experts, picked as one of five international models to look out for in the following 12 months. She was signed that year to American lingerie brand Victoria's Secret, making her debut for the brand at the brand's 2006 show in Los Angeles.[citation needed]

    Huntington-Whiteley remained unknown outside the fashion industry up until 2008, when she was cast by chief creative director Christopher Bailey, replacing Agyness Deyn for Burberry's autumn/winter campaign with actor Sam Riley. She got her first British Vogue cover on the November 2008 issue, alongside Eden Clark and Jourdan Dunn in a feature celebrating British models.[citation needed] The following year, she was featured as the face of Karen Millen's spring/summer 2009 advertising campaign. Huntington-Whiteley received an Elle Style Award for 2009's "Model of the Year". She starred in a short film for Agent Provocateur playing a woman whose boyfriend forgets Valentine's Day.[citation needed] For fall/winter 2009, she modelled campaigns for Godiva and Miss Sixty. In February 2010, Huntington-Whiteley officially became a Victoria's Secret Angel,[citation needed] modelling for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York City.

    In 2010, she posed nude for the Pirelli Calendar, which was photographed by Terry Richardson. Huntington-Whiteley hit the runway for designers Prada in Milan and Giles Deacon in Paris. For SS10 her advertising campaigns included Monsoon's first underwear line, Thomas Wylde, Full Circle, and VS Online. In March, she collaborated with VOGUE.COM to share her outfit choices daily for the Today I'm Wearing feature.[citation needed] She appeared on the covers of the May 2010 issues of Harper's Bazaar Russia and GQ UK. She was featured on the cover of LOVE Magazine's September issue, styled as a pinup girl. For FW10 she modelled for Burberry as well as the company's first Beauty line ad; her other advertising campaigns included Loewe, Thomas Wylde, and Leon Max. Fashion photographer Rankin devoted a book entirely to her entitled Ten Times Rosie. Rankin thinks Huntington-Whiteley puts diversity back into fashion: "We’ve been looking at very, very skinny, almost masculine girls for a long time. [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." Celebrity make-up artist Ruby Hammer, who has worked with Huntington-Whiteley for years, described her as the "quintessential" English rose.

    In March 2011, she landed her first solo British Vogue cover. In May, she was voted No. 1 in Maxim Magazine's "Hot 100" list. She was also voted No.1 in FHM's World's Sexiest Woman 2011 poll. She appeared on the covers of the UK's July issues of Elle and GQ.

    Huntington-Whiteley was unveiled as the face of Burberry's newest fragrance, Burberry Body, in July 2011.

    As of July 2011, she ranks No. 15 on "The Money Girls" list and No. 3 on the "Top 20 Sexiest Models" list at MODELS.COM.

    In 2012, Huntington-Whiteley was named the top style icon at the Elle Style Awards. In 2013, Huntington-Whiteley starred alongside Helena Bonham Carter and David Gandy in the Marks & Spencer Xmas advert.

    In May 2010, it was announced that Huntington-Whiteley would become the new female lead in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, released 29 June 2011, replacing Megan Fox. She had previously worked with the film's director, Michael Bay, on a Victoria's Secret commercial. MTV Networks' named her one of the "Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2011". Prior to the film's release, she won the "Female Star of Tomorrow" award at the 2011 CinemaCon Awards. Critics were highly critical of the acting of Huntington-Whiteley and co-star Shia LaBeouf. Peter Travers stated the two "couldn't be duller". Jason Solomons of The Observer wrote that "we're first introduced to Rosie via a close-up of her bum, segueing straight from the film's opening sequence and titles on to the pert buttocks and underwear of our heroine", and that Huntington-Whiteley's English posh girl accent "renders her practically unintelligible when surrounded by American accents and falling masonry". Much of the criticism towards Rosie Huntington-Whiteley compared her in an unfavorable light to Megan Fox. Lou Lumenick said that her "'acting' makes...Megan Fox look like Meryl Streep in comparison". Baz Bamigboye gave his review of the film the title 'Come back Megan Fox, all is forgiven...'. In a positive review, Drew McWeeny of HitFix said, "She reminds me of Cameron Diaz in The Mask, an actress who doesn't really show off any range, but who gives a natural, winning performance and who is up to the challenge of this particular picture."

    Huntington-Whiteley will have a role in the film Mad Max: Fury Road, which is scheduled for release in 2015.

    Personal life

    Huntington-Whiteley dated Tyrone Wood, the youngest son of Rolling Stones member Ronnie Wood, from August 2007 until October 2009. After she and Wood separated, Huntington-Whiteley was briefly involved with French actor Olivier Martinez. By April 2010, her new relationship with English actor Jason Statham became public after Statham and Huntington-Whiteley attended the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival together and were subsequently photographed after a shopping trip to Cartier of Beverly Hills.
