Ladies and gentleman, behold Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She’s 23, hails from England, has dated Oliver Martinez (Unfaithful) and Jason Statham (The Bank Job) and is best known as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. As of today, according to Michael Bay’s website, she can add “Sam Witwicky’s Love Interest” to her resume, as she’s the new female lead in Transformers 3, which recently started filming in Los Angeles. She is the official replacement for collagen-happy Megan Fox, whom Michael Bay did not invite back for a third outing as Mikaela Banes.
I don’t know about you, but just from a sex appeal standpoint this seems like a smart move. Fox was never on my jaw-dropper list and definitely was not cast for her acting prowess, so plopping an underwear model into the third film is not even close to risky.
What do you think? Is Miss Huntington-Whiteley hotter than Fox? Do you even care? Is this even news? I’ll leave you to your thoughts while I wipe all the drool off my keyboard.
