Rosie Huntington-Whiteley confirmed to star in ‘Transformers 3’ – video

Underwear model will replace Megan Fox

Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will star in Transformers 3 – despite never acting before.

The underwear company have made a video congratulating her on being Megan Fox‘s replacement as female lead in the movie, which you can watch below.

The model was apparently up against the likes of Gemma Arterton, Ashley Green and Zoe Salanda for the role.

Director Michael Bay worked with Huntington-Whiteley when he made an advert for Victoria’s Secret.

A new female lead was needed after Megan Fox left the project having appeared in the first two films.

Transformers 3 is due out in summer 2011.
