British beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been in the modelling industry for many years now and is regarded as one of the biggest and best models on the face of the Earth. However, it seems that things were not always looking so promising for Rosie, as she had a few struggles when she first started out, which were not her own doing. The stunning model has revealed how she was overlooked for some modelling work, as she looked too healthy.
Huntington-Whiteley told PEOPLE magazine, "'I've always been considered more of a commercial model. I started modelling when I was 16, which is just mental, and when I used to go to castings for the shows they would see me and say, 'She looks too wholesome. She's too healthy!' And that's bad because...? So I would think, 'Well, thanks. I'll take that as a compliment.' I like that word, wholesome, so it's hard for me to think of it as negative."
She added, "I want to feel put together and polished, but people here aren't very fashion conscious. There's a fine balance between liking the way I look and not feeling overdressed, so I live in great T-shirts, denim and boots. You have to be comfortable and practical. But sometimes I'll think, I'm putting on red lipstick and thigh-high boots and I'm going for it tonight! I'll show up somewhere and I'm sure people are saying, 'Who is that girl and where does she think she's going?"
As well as being one of the biggest and best models in the modelling industry, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has also turned her talents to acting and is set to appear on the big screen in the coming weeks. Rosie will star alongside Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, and Charlize Theron in the movie Mad Max: Fury Road, which is scheduled to open on May 14 in the UK and May 15 in the US.
