Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham: A Successful Couple
Growing up in a southern English organic farm surrounded by chickens, rabbits, and donkeys, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s parents never imagined that their little girl would become one of the most important and sought-after models in the fashion industry. Despite being a beautiful and tall girl with thick lips and a well-developed chest, her high school years were difficult as she suffered from bullying due to her appearance and double surname. However, she overcame those challenges and left them behind when she began to shine in the modeling world.
At the age of 15, Rosie began to realize that the farm was not her natural habitat and started doing modeling jobs while balancing her studies. In 2005, she landed her first cover for the Japanese edition of Vogue. By the time she turned 19 in 2006, her name was already written in gold letters, and many compared her to Kate Moss, even saying that she would be her successor. However, Rosie didn’t mind the comparison and considered Moss the best ambassador of British fashion.
At the young age of 15, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley began her journey in the fashion industry. With her striking features and body measurements, she quickly became one of the most sought-after top models by designers and fashion houses. One of her most memorable works was with Burberry when she was only 21 years old. She never forgot that those photographs played a crucial role in launching her internationally. Years later, she posed again for Burberry, this time without clothes, with only a scarf wrapped around her body, captured by Mario Testino’s lens. “That job marked my career, how could I not want to pose for them when I was the ‘Burberry body’!” she exclaimed. Her angelic looks, including her blonde hair, blue eyes, and enigmatic face, earned her a spot on the Victoria’s Secret runway in 2006. Only four years later, she earned her wings as the first British model to become one of the famous Victoria’s Secret Angels. Her exclusive modeling contracts included campaigns for Prabal Gurung’s 2014 summer collection, and later, Anthony Vaccarello appointed her as his muse and ambassador.
Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was already considered one of the world’s highest-paid models in 2016, earning over $9 million. She took advantage of her fame and wealth to launch her own cosmetics line called Rosie INC, designed several lingerie lines for Mark&Spencer, and a denim collection for Paige Denim. Her career skyrocketed when she entered the film industry, and her role in Transformers: Dark of the Moon as Shia LaBeouf’s girlfriend came after she had previously worked with the director, Michael Bay, on fashion videos. She met actor Jason Statham a year after breaking up with Oliver Martinez, and six years later, they announced their engagement. The couple now has two children, Jack Oscar, born in 2017, and Isabella James, born in February 2022.
In 2010, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham started dating. Despite receiving booing and negative critiques during her film debut, she remained undeterred and continued pursuing her acting career. Her next attempt was in Mad Max: Fury Road, where she portrayed The Splendid Angharad, one of Immortan Joe’s five wives. Nowadays, her Instagram account is the only glimpse into her personal life. In her pictures, we see a woman who leads a quiet family life, far from the runways, but not from fashion. She still works for major magazines, designs lingerie, and grows her cosmetics brand, but at a slower pace, as if she has embraced a new, softer philosophy of life. In 2021, she filmed a television series about the fashion and beauty industry called About Face and also made an appearance in an episode of Who’s in My Bathroom?, alongside stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Emilie Ratajkowski, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner.
