20 Sexy Models Turned Actors


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

The Model: Victoria’s Secret snapped Rosie up in 2006, and she landed her first British Vogue cover just two years later in 2008.

Acting Career: Michael Bay called Rosie in to replace Megan Fox when the latter was dropped from the director’s third Transformers movie. Bay and Rosie had worked together previously on a Victoria’s Secret advert. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is her movie debut.

More Than Set Dressing? It’s safe to say her performance won’t be troubling the Academy (hell, even Megan Fox won’t be losing any sleep), but Bay’s reason for casting her is clear from the way that his leering camera ogles her throughout.

Face smoosh!

So a bombastic, smashy, clingfilm-shiny new trailer has been released for Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, the third film in the robotics-scrap-til-we-cry-from-boredom franchise from Michael Bay. And while there really is a lot of robots and scrapping and smashy stuff, the thing that stood out for me was – face smooshing!

Poor Rosie Huntington-Whiteley appears to have signed on to replace Megan Fox in this threequel just so Shia LaBeouf can mould her face like it’s a head-sized hunk of clay. It’s like that bit in one of the Friday The 13th sequels where Jason crushes a gal’s head with his bare hands. Awesome!

Oh, there’s also a cool bit with a building-destroying Transformer, but the face smooshing scandal is far more interesting…

Edited to add this image from Friday The 13th Part 3D, in which poor Rick has his head squeezed so tight by Jason that his eye pops out – IN 3D!
