Find out how Rosie Huntington-Whiteley got into butt-kicking shape to star in the most anticipated flick of the summer

In movie land, it’s not uncommon for a director to butt heads with his leading lady. But the public feud that brewed—and eventually boiled over—between Transformers director Michael Bay and actress Megan Fox left Bay with a challenge that could make or break Dark of the Moon, the highly anticipated third installment of the blockbuster franchise: Find a replacement strong and sexy enough to outfox Megan.

Enter Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—a gorgeous model Bay met while filming a Victoria’s Secret commercial in 2009. The guy clearly has good instincts. Before a single frame of her was flashed on the big screen, Rosie had already been crowned Female Star of Tomorrow by CinemaCon, the convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners. No pressure or anything.

Thankfully, while acting is new to Rosie, being the center of attention isn’t. In addition to being a Victoria’s Secret Angel, the 24-year-old was the face of Burberry and has appeared in advertisements for brands such as BCBG Max Azria and DKNY. Last year, she was the subject of the book Ten Times Rosie, which features her in creative scenarios—including one in which she’s dressed only in body paint.

For her lunchtime interview at an L.A. restaurant, she shows up dressed a bit more conservatively in a cardigan and skinny jeans. Even in that understated attire, Rosie is a stunner—tawny hair, pouty lips, striking blue eyes, and a tall, lean build. But for someone who has made a living parading around in her “knickers” (a word she delivers in a charming British lilt), Rosie possesses none of the aloofness top models are infamous for. “People always tell me, ‘Gosh, you’re nice!’ ” she says. “Like they expect me to be a huge bitch.” Far from it. She’s quick to smile, thoughtful, and, you get the feeling, tons of fun. “I love to go out, dance, and have a drink!” she admits.

In other words, she’s just the kind of girl you’d expect Shia LaBeouf’s up-for-anything character, Sam Witwicky, to fall for.
