While there are a lot of struggling actors in Hollywood these days, working hard and waiting to get their big break, there are a number of models who are walking into the acting industry and getting some big roles right away. While some of these models go on to enjoy a successful acting career, there are others who struggle to impress on the big screen. Here we take a look at some of the models making the move into acting.
The first model whose acting career we are going to take a look at is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who got her big acting break in the 2011 movie Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Rosie was cast as the new Transformers eye candy following the departure of Megan Fox. Rosie has not appeared on the big screen since then but has a role in the movie Mad Max: Fury Road, which opens on May 15, 2015 in both the US and the UK.
One of the biggest models on the face of the Earth right now would have to be Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue beauty Kate Upton, who is enjoying her acting career at the moment. Kate had small roles in the films Tower Heist and The Three Stooges, while she will appear in her biggest role to date in the movie The Other Woman, which opens on April 23 in the UK and April 25 in the US.
The career of Emily Ratajkowski has been a rather interesting one, as she had an early acting career appearing in a couple of episodes of iCarly, as well as a couple of movie roles. Emily then turned her attention to her modelling career and became a huge star last year after appearing naked in the Blurred Lines music video. Ratajkowski will next appear on the big screen in the movie Gone Girl, while she also has a small role in the Entourage movie.
There are plenty more models out there trying their hand at acting, so feel free to share your favourites with us.
