Describing how she looked like in her early modeling career, the Victoria's Secret Angel confesses that she would turn up at castings 'in trainers, with braids, a ton of makeup, plucked eyebrows'.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley might be considered as one of the sexiest women in the world nowadays, but she wasn't always this beautiful. Speaking about her teenage years in an interview for the December Issue of Harper's Bazaar, the Victoria's Secret Angel likened herself to America Ferrera's magazine assistant character in ABC series "Ugly Betty".
"I was a bit of an Ugly Betty when I was 15," claimed the Carly Spencer of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon". She also revealed that even after she started her career in the modeling world, she would turn up at castings "in trainers, with braids, a ton of makeup, plucked eyebrows. ... I had braces."
These days, the new face of Burberry has the confidence to rock a runway walk or two. "There's always a moment when some great song comes on and everyone's like, 'Do the runway walk, Rosie!' And you're like, 'No, no, no,' and then you begrudgingly get up and do your thing," she said. "Yeah, it might be my little party trick. It always gets applause."
Despite her fame and beauty, Rosie is being careful in making a transition into acting. "It's interesting coming from modeling, where women rule the industry, into one where there are so few great female parts and the competition is so much higher," she said before quoting a famous acting coach, " 'You have to have the skin of a rhinoceros' - just let go of everything."
