Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Transformers 3 has cemented its place as one of the highest-grossing movies of all-time. Is it the rampaging robots? Is it the explosions? Is it the dialogue? MAXIM chalks it up to a 175cm English rose with the world’s most perfect pout...

When you need to save civilisation from evil robots, call Optimus Prime. When you need to replace Megan Fox as the face of a multi-billion-dollar franchise, call Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the British Victoria’s Secret Angel who transforms lingerie from mere fabric to... well, it’s still fabric – but with Rosie in it, which would undoubtedly stop Decepticon traffic dead in its tracks. The 24-year-old Transformers: Dark Of The Moon star is funny, insanely beautiful and her lips change colour with her moods. What more can you ask of Hollywood’s newest sex symbol?

How was it making your film debut in a massive blockbuster – and a Michael Bay one at that? Dare we say, explosive?
Well, Shia [LaBeouf, her lucky co-star] and I are explosive together! I don’t think anything is subtle on a Michael Bay set. Everything is 10 times what it is in reality. More fire, more noise, more explosions! Faster, harder… I was thrilled to witness it all.

With the trend of models starring in big movie roles, do you think it’s fair to take the money out of hard-working actors’ pockets?
Do you think it’s fair that actors have been taking the money out of hard-working models’ pockets? Actresses have completely taken over the fashion industry in the last five years in terms of big deals. Maybe it’s time the models got some payback.

You recently moved to America, where our US MAXIM brothers voted you number one in their Hot 100 list of gorgeous girls. To them we say good decision, and to you we say congrats!
It’s a huge compliment! I’m still shocked. It’s a great honour to have in your career.

Do you miss home?
Every day. It’s my soul, England. I miss the people, the culture, the food…

Wait – you actually miss English food?
Oh, my God, so much! I find it strange that people say English food is so bad. To me it’s delicious. I’ve never really considered it, but I was thinking the other day maybe it’s strange to have beans on toast for breakfast.

Is that what you grew up eating?
Yeah – I grew up on a working farm. We had chickens, sheep, horses – that’s how we ate.

We hope you didn’t eat the horses!
No! That’s the one thing I didn’t eat. I grew up shooting and hunting. I was a tomboy.

You’re famous for your beautiful lips. Is that something you’ve worked on?
The rest of my body requires a lot of upkeep but the lips are one thing I don’t have to work on. They’re funny, because they change colour with my mood. They get really, really red when I’m angry or passionate and pale when I’m miserable or tired. But I suppose everyone else’s do, too.

Uh, no…
They have a life of their own. They get me in trouble. You know mood rings? I’ve got mood lips.

Have your lips started to get you recognised more often in public?
My driving instructor was like, “You’re the Victoria’s Secret model!” I failed my last test miserably, but this guy passed me with flying colours.
