Childhood: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was born at the Freedom Fields Hospital in Plymouth, Devon, to Fiona and Charles Huntington-Whiteley. Her mother is a fitness instructor and her father is a chartered surveyor.
She grew up on a farm in Tavistock, Devon and studied at Tavistock College, where she was spotted by somebody working for Profile Model Management, whilst she was seeking an internship with London model agencies. She undertook her first modelling assignment at the age of 16, for Levi's.
Career: Huntington-Whiteley started modelling for the American underwear brand Victoria's Secret in 2006. She debuted at the brand's 2006 show in Los Angeles. However, she remained relatively unknown in the fashion industry until 2008, when Burberry's Christopher Bailey chose her to replace Agyness Deyn for their fall/winter collection, along with the actor Sam Riley.
The model then landed her first British Vogue cover in November 2008, alongside Eden Clark and Jourdan Dunn. Karen Millen then signed her up as the face of their spring / summer collection in 2009. Later that year, she received an Elle magazine Style Award for 2009's 'Model of the Year'. Rosie then went on to star in a short film for Agent Provocateur. She played the role of a young woman whose boyfriend forgets Valentine's Day. For fall / winter 2009, she modelled for Godiva and Miss Sixty, before officially becoming a Victoria's Secret Angel and modelling for their fashion show in New York City.

She went on to return to Burberry for their fall/winter 2010 campaign and also for the release of their fragrance, Burberry Body. The revered fashion photographer devoted an entire book to her, entitled Ten Times Rosie. He career continued to progress in 2011, when she landed her first debut cover for British Vogue.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has also had a successful introduction to an acting career, after it was announced that she had been cast in the role of Carly Spencer in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. She replaced Megan Fox in the role and appears alongside Shia LeBoeuf and Patrick Dempsey. Despite receiving a lot of criticism for her performance, MTV's Nextmovie.com still named her as one of their breakthrough stars to look out for in 2011.
Personal Life: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley dated Ronnie Wood's son Tyrone Wood between 2007 and 2009. When they separated, she began dating Olivier Martinez (who also famously dated Kylie Minogue) and in April 2010 it was reported that she was dating the British actor Jason Statham.
Leave it to a veteran to show the young sparks how to do it: it's been 30 years since George Miller last visited his post-apocalyptic hero Max Rockatansky, and now he's back with the best-staged action thriller of the year, a blockbuster that dares to have meaningful themes and complex characters. He also recreates Mad Max as a kind of James Bond franchise with a story that sits alongside the earlier films, not before or after, and an actor who brings a new energy to the role.
In a desert wasteland where people trade water and oil to survive, Max (Tom Hardy) is a loner haunted by the death of his family. Then he's captured by a gang from the Citadel, a towering rock city run by the tyrant Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), who has positioned himself as a god who keeps his enslaved people on a short leash. On a mission to collect oil, Joe's top imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) veers her war-rig off into the desert. So Joe sends a gang after her. Leading the charge is the gung-ho Nux (Nicholas Hoult), who uses Max, strapped to his car like a grille ornament, as a blood-bag to supply energy. But after a series of clashes involving three other gangs of desert marauders, Max and Nux end up on board Furiosa's rig, in which she is hoping to smuggle Joe's five young wives to safety.
The plot itself is fairly blunt, which means that the film requires very little dialogue (Max doesn't speak at all for the first 45 minutes, mainly because his houth is actually bolted shut). Even so, Miller fills every shot with telling details that strengthen the characters and provide insight into what they are doing, building more intriguing relationships with suspicious glances than most filmmakers do with endless conversation.

Charlize Theron has no interested in directing, preferring to stay in front of the camera so she has "somebody to blame" if things go horribly wrong.
Charlize Theron has no desire to step behind the camera - at least not any time soon. Theron was interviewed at the L.A. premiere of Mad Max: Fury Road on Thursday night (7th May) and claimed she enjoys not having to take on the full responsibility of directing.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was one of the most breathtaking beauties at this year's Met Gala fashion event. She was snapped stepping out of the Mark Hotel in New York with a guest wearing a gorgeously shaped pale pink gown with her long hair pulled back into a bun.
The world is messed up. Years after multiple calamities totally trashed the planet, the world is covered in nothing but desert, and populated by the people strongest and most likely to survive - many of whom happen to be mad. Max (Tom Hardy) is a former highway patrol man, who has an unrivalled knowledge of the desert that now covers the planet. When he accidentally runs into a group of possibly the last women on the planet, and agrees to escort them through the desert to safety, to ensure the continuation of the human race. But when Max ends up being captured himself, it is down to his new friends to rescue him from a gang of lunatics.

With the world first running out of oil, water soon followed. Planet Earth is now covered in endless deserts, and people driven completely insane through desperation. Across the lawless land, flee two rebels, desperately holding onto what could perhaps be the only chance for the world's salvation and order. Perusing them, is an evil, chaotic bandit leader, desperate to get his hands on what they carry. And then there's Max (Tom Hardy) - a simple man of action and few words, who just wants to live his life outside of all this madness. But in a world gone insane, just how long until he becomes Mad Max?
Over 35 years after his directorial debut with 'Mad Max', George Miller returns to the franchise that made him with 'Mad Max: Fury Road'. After almost 25 years in development hell, the fourth film in the 'Mad Max' series began its principle photography in July 2012 in Namibia, with filming finishing in December of the same year. In November 2013, certain parts of the film had to undergo re-filming before it was finally finished. 'Mad Max: Fury Road' is set to hit theatres on 15th May 2015 in the US.
A sea of fashion giants made their way to the launch party of CR Fashion Book Issue 5 held at The Peninsula Paris hotel, including editor and host Carine Roitfeld herself with her daughter Julia Restoin Roitfeld, as well as Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington Whiteley, celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and socialite Olivia Palermo with husband Johannes Huebl.
Max Rockatansky is a formidable traveller of the Australian outback, still fighting against the dystopian setting whereby population is low and resources are few. He is still suffering from past traumas - the loss of his family due to rogue criminals - and is scarred from his frequent rescue missions of the various tribes he has come across over the decades. This time, however, he is more prepared than ever to deal with the ever growing brutality of the ruffians out to kill him, and as usual he is prepared to be just as savage in order to survive. It's been a long time since any kind of law and order was held in the world, so sometimes you have to fight fire with fire. On his latest journey for peace, he meets Furiosa; a woman desperate to live life once again and is convinced that her childhood hometown on the other side of the desert holds the key to tranquility in her life.

Is Agata Buzek's weight cause for concern - or she is naturally this skinny?
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is skinny. Angelina Jolie is skinny. Megan Fox is skinny. But Polish actress Agata Buzek is SKINNY. Wielding a cigarette, the Polish actress turned up at the London premiere of her new movie Hummingbird on Monday night (June 17, 2013) looking incredibly slender - especially when posing next to muscly co-star Jason Statham.
The blonde star wore her hair tied in a ponytail with a patterned sleeveless top and cropped trousers. She teamed the outfit with a black belt tied around her waist, cream coat and black flat shoes. Agata formerly worked as a high fashion model in Paris and is known for her skinny frame, though her recent weight loss was noticeable at the world premiere of Hummingbird, reports the Daily Mail.
Buzek is now thought to be slimmer than a US size 0 (a UK size 4), though she appears perfectly happy and was in good spirits in central London on Monday. She plays nun Christina in the new action movie - also named Redemption - about a homeless and on the run ex-special forces soldier navigating London's criminal underworld. He seizes an opportunity to assume another man's identity - transforming into an avenging angel in the process.
