Rosie Huntington-Whiteley hates mornings.

The actress-and-model struggles to function in the early hours and always has to give herself extra time in bed before she gets up.

She said: ''I'm about as far from being a morning person as they come. I give myself 30 minutes extra before I get up and then spend it lying there awake, literally counting down the half-hour minute by minute. I'm pretty bad.''

While she doesn't like mornings, Rosie - who is dating actor Jason Statham - feels blessed with the opportunities she has been given.

She said: ''I just think I'm on this planet to evolve. I feel really lucky that I've had these opportunities. It's always funny when people say, 'What do you want to do?' and I say, 'I don't know. I'm just doing things!' I honestly don't know where I'll be in 10 years' time. I just take every day as it comes.

''You have to try and make the best out of every situation you're in; try to go for the gold, right?''
