We're used to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looking perfect on magazine covers and editorials, but we rarely hear her speak.
In her latest appearance in NET-A-PORTER's The Edit magazine, the supermodel gets a rare chance to talk about everything from her partner of three years Jason Statham, to her lingerie designs, and the types of movies she'd like to be in.
Of course, she also represents her day job by modeling colorful, lively pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Isabel Marant, and Oscar de la Renta.
Check out the full spread (below) and read on for some of her interview HIGHlights…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
On her go-to color:
"Red is my power color. I love red. I’m drawn to it. I feel great when I’m wearing it. It’s a sexy, confident color. But it’s got to be a deep, powerful shade."
On how she and beau Jason Statham deal with walking the red carpet:
"Jason and I just make each other laugh. Most of the time we’re p***ing ourselves laughing, whispering comments in each other’s ears. Oh, you know. Naughty stuff."
On her ideal next movie:
"I'd love to do a period drama, or make a quintessentially British comedy. I just don’t connect with gross-out fart jokes and slapstick. When I’m on a plane I watch all the new releases, I see that as my job, and I have to say, a lot of American comedies are very sexist."
On how the paps influence her shopping habits:
"I do the majority of my shopping in the UK or online. NET-A-PORTER is my best friend. It is frustrating if you’re trying to do something private with your partner. If you’re out buying bits for the house and 10 people are trying to shoot through the window, it can be intimidating and embarrassing. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get cross. I’m not someone who likes to be the center of attention, believe it or not."
On designing her own lingerie collection:
"The process, from understanding what people want, to seeing my products in stores is incredibly moving. As wonderful as that, or being part of a big movie is, those are things that happen to you. I don’t want to wait for people to give me opportunities – I want to make my own."
Don't worry, RHW, we're sure you'll never have any trouble making your own opportunities!
