So now, according to Deadline, it’s all but official: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley — a Victoria’s Secret model — will replace Megan Fox in Transformers 3. She has no acting experience, but since when did Michael Bay care about that? The good news is: She’s Jason Statham’s girlfriend, so if the Baynis attempts to rub himself up against her, Statham will shatter Michael Bay’s solar plexus.
And then we all win.
Maybe it’s unbecoming of me to say, especially when we’re dealing with a supermodel here, but is it just me, or is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley kind of fugly? Is she one of those supermodels that’s attractive because she looks unusual? She’s certainly got the Megan Fox blow-up doll thing going for her, but if Bay is choosing an “actress” based solely on her aesthetic appeal (and what else could he possibly be going for?), I’m not so sure it was a wise decision. She looks like a Derek Zoolander after an allergic reaction to peanuts.
Whatever. Far be it from me to second guess the Baynis.
