Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is an English fashion model and actress.

In November of 2009, she was granted her Victoria's Secret wings and walked the runway as on official Angel in the annual fashion show. Rosie is also an established runway strutter, a Vogue cover model in the UK and a Kanye West video star. Rosie is more famous these days for replacing Megan Fox in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been an on-again, off-again item with Tyrone Wood, the son of legendary Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood. If he's had a look at his girlfriend's Agent Provocateur video, Tyrone Wood won't ever bail on Valentine's Day plans. In the smoldering short film, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's on-screen boyfriend cancels their V-Day plans, causing her to show up at his office in lingerie and a trench coat. After tying him up and blindfolding him for the requisite lap dance, she punches him in the head and leaves abruptly.
When the pair separated, she began a brief relationship with French actor Olivier Martinez that ended in early 2010. In April 2010, it was first reported that she was in a relationship with English actor Jason Statham after they were seen at the Coachella Festival.

The oldest of three, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley can credit her close-knit family for instilling both the organic virtues and healthy values that would later help her look good and keep her out of trouble (for the most part) as a professional model. Thanks to a farm on the family property, homegrown vegetables were regular staples on the dinner table, and the supportive nature of her family gave Rosie Huntington-Whiteley a positive, realistic outlook on life.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's personality was so grounded, in fact, that while she had a childhood interest in fashion, she never believed herself to be good-looking enough to make it. Instead, she imagined herself dressing models as a designer, but fate (who must have an eye for models) had different plans for her. In 2003, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was attending Tavistock College when she sought work as a dispatcher at Profile, a London modeling agency. A Profile agent thought she might be better off as a model instead.

Life as a model was an adjustment for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She had to contend with older (and cattier) women around her and the rigorous work schedule. Most of her first year at Profile was spent doing local assignments, which gave her time to adjust. In 2004, she signed with the internationally recognized Women Management and promptly appeared in a pair of magazine editorials, for ELLEgirl and Teen Vogue, soon afterward. From there, she was off to New York for her first runway shows in the Big Apple and a big payday as part of Tommy Hilfiger's fall campaign. By the spring of 2005, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley had also appeared on four magazine covers (Wallpaper, L'Officiel, Italian D, Japanese Vogue) and was living her dream, even if it meant that organic food would sometimes be difficult to come by.

The lingerie experts at Victoria's Secret contacted Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in 2005 to join them for a catalog shoot. She accepted, and as a result of stripping down to her underwear, she found herself on the Victoria's Secret runway a year later alongside Adriana Lima and Gisele Bundchen. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's association with Victoria's Secret would prove to be long-lasting and lucrative -- always good in our books -- and the company would choose her as a spokesmodel for its college-targeted PINK line. Simultaneously, she continued to jump between ad campaigns (DKNY, BCGB Max Azria), catalog work (Macy's, Bloomingdale's) and magazine editorials (New York, Elle, Harper's & Queen). She also joined the music video culture with an appearance in the Kanye West/Pharrell Williams collaboration, "Number One."

With her traffic-stopping figure being broadcast around the world through ads and magazines, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was now a true star in the making with a solid industry reputation for being efficient and reliable. Naturally, it was the perfect time for a scandal. Just months after being signed on as the face of Burberry, the very same A-list fashion house that once hired a young Kate Moss, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley drew an unfavorable comparison to Moss (for drugs) when a picture was published of her holding a bong pipe with fellow models Jennifer Pugh and Aleksandra Rastovic. Though the picture was several years old, the allegations were damaging and rumors quickly surfaced that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley would be released from her Burberry contract. Her ads for the company's Autumn 2008 campaign went through as scheduled, but her fate with Burberry remains up in the air.

In November of 2008, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley found herself in yet another high-profile picture with two models, but this time it would prove to be completely beneficial to her career. She snagged the cover of the UK edition of Vogue, sharing the page with beauties Eden Clark and Jourdan Dunn. As the cover was a lot more flattering than the bong picture, it put Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's career back on the fast track, and she would close the year by participating in the Victoria's Secret fashion expose before winning top honors as Model of the Year at the 2009 Elle Style Awards and becoming an official Victoria's Secret Angel in November of 2009.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley jump-started 2010 with a photo shoot for the racy (and wildly popular) Pirelli calendar. Now, after being handpicked by Michael Bay to replace Megan Fox in Transformers 3, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's name is about to become household.
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.
She 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.
