You may recognize Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as a lingerie-clad Angel strutting down the Victoria’s Secret catwalk. Or as the face of Burberry. She was also in the third installment of the “Transformers” franchise, and she dates Jason Statham.
But in an interview the 28-year-old just did with “Violet Grey,” she insists she didn’t choose to be a model.
“Being a model, being an actress — it’s not decided by you. You’re chosen,” Huntington-Whiteley said.
“You’re cast, and that’s fantastic, of course. There is always a sense of pride when you make the cut, but there has always been a big part of me that wants to make things happen for myself. I’d like to get myself into a position where I’m starting something on my own.”
“That’s my focus for this year.”
For someone who says modeling chose her, this isn’t her first time going nude either.
“I had just started modeling,” she said.
“I was in London, and it was a different time. I honestly think I was a lot more free when I was younger. Kate Moss was my favorite supermodel; she set the standard in terms of nudity as fashion and art. I think being comfortable in one’s skin is the most attractive quality a girl can have.”
Do you think Huntington-Whiteley chose to be model, or was she chosen?
