Victoria Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is officially replacing Megan Fox as Shai LaBeouf’s love interest in Michael Bay’s upcoming sequel Transformers 3. The 23-year-old British babe is now in the process of obtaining her work visa.
Paramount Pictures announced that Fox had been let go from the project last week. While the Fox camp states that she exited the flick out of her own volition, most believe it was her biting comments regarding Bay and the Transformers franchise that got her booted. (UPDATE: THE REASON FOR FOX’S FIRING FINALLY REVEALED)
Considering Whiteley has ZERO acting experience, I’m inclined to believe the latter. Now, if he would just replace LaBeouf for talking shit about Transformers 2 with Whiteley’s boyfriend Jason Statham and an Audi, this sequel could actually start to feel fresh.
Bay fucked met Whiteley last year when they worked together on a Victoria’s Secret commercial (see it here).
