Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley: Sailing Through Her Life and Loving It
She’s a supermodel and Mad Max star who’s found the love of her life. For Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, it’s clear skies ahead—on- and off-screen.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is winning at life these days. She’s starred in two blockbuster films, including this month’s Mad Max: Fury Road. (Hello, billion-dollar franchise.) She’s in a blissfully happy relationship with action star Jason Statham. And as you would expect of a former Victoria’s Secret model, she’s superhuman gorgeous in person: creamy butterscotch skin; bee-stung lips; thick, dirty-blonde hair gathered into an artfully messy bun. Yes, the girl has it all—and she makes it look easy.
Behind the scenes, though, is a laser-focused 28-year-old who admits to being something of a workaholic. Huntington-Whiteley’s secret weapon, it turns out, isn’t that flawless face but an always-try-harder ethos—and an innate ability to roll with life’s punches. “It’s so important to understand your strengths and weaknesses,” she says. So for me that means setting goals that are realistic but still aspirational.”
It’s the kind of life lesson she learned early on. Huntington-Whiteley remembers that as a child, she once came home from school with a bad grade. Her mother scolded her: “Life isn’t going to hand you things on a silver platter, so you’d better buck up!” Her mother’s brand of tough love gave her the thick skin she needed when she eventually became an actress. She replaced Megan Fox in 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, becoming an A-list name overnight—and a natural target for critics. “The real stars of movies like that are the control men,” she laughs. Still, the film grossed more than a billion dollars and proved its new star could hold her own in a franchise.
This month, Mad Max will hit theaters. Huntington-Whiteley plays Splendid, the fiercely protective wife of a warlord in a postapocalyptic world, opposite Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. For six months, she was on location in Namibia, waking up at 4:30 a.m. for hair, makeup and a full day of punishing stunts. “You have to be fit and healthy and strong,” she says. “Your mind has to be strong, too. Not only for the stunts but also for the number of hours you’re spending on-set.”
As with the role she won in Transformers, Huntington-Whiteley didn’t seek out the Mad Max gig—the director, George Miller, asked her to audition. “I never set out to be an actress,” she notes. “I’m always open if something great comes along, but it’s not where I see my long-term future.”
