As one of the world’s most photographed women, and a role model to thousands of young women it’s no small wonder that Rosie Huntington-Whitely’s collaborative line of lingerie for M&S has become the bestselling in history.
But it hasn’t always been sunshine, runways and action hero boyfriends for Huntington-Whitely, and even today- there is a great deal of criticism that the supermodel has to let roll off her back.
Her new Marks and Spencer range is out today, which you can check out HERE, there is even Free Shipping to Australia.
Some highlights from her interview:
On her start in the industry-
“I wanted to get out of Devon so desperately. London for me was where the big lights were…but I was never particularly fashionable. Devon didn’t allow for those opportunities.”
On her trials with former agents-
When I was starting out [an] agent advised [me] to eat “a single piece of sushi a day”.”My eloquent response was: ‘Go fuck yourself!…Because I felt that there was never anything for me, no workshops, no people letting you know how you should be eating or what you should be wearing to castings.”
On her career-
“I mean, it’s self-indulgent. It’s not like I’m a nurse or I’m helping people with their finances. I think it’s important to be aware of that. I have seen people who think they’re doing something really noble for the world, and it’s like: you’re making a movie. You’re doing what makes you happy, but get real right now. Certain people take themselves very, very seriously and it’s just unnecessary. That’s a funny thing with celebrity and charity work, too, isn’t it? It’s not selfless, either.”
On the online blogs and gossip columns-
“I’d be lying to say I didn’t [read them]. I have a much healthier relationship with it now than a few years ago. It was very upsetting for me – there was this other Rosie that was becoming famous and it was quite an out-of-body experience. I didn’t know how to handle it. I cut myself off from everything. I wouldn’t go on the internet. I hid for quite a while. I got very nervous in public, actually.”
