I was an Ugly Betty, says Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Washington, Nov 24: Rosie Huntington Whiteley, who is considered as one of the most beautiful women in the world, has revealed that she hasn’t always looked terrific.

Victoria’s Secret Angel turned actress has revealed in the December issue of a magazine that she was quite like an ‘ugly betty when she was 15′ and used to go to her castings in ‘trainers, with braids, a ton of make-up, plucked eyebrows’ and braces.

“I was a bit of an Ugly Betty when I was 15,” Radar Online quoted her as telling Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

Though she made her silver screen debut earlier this year by replacing Megan Fox in Michael Bay’s fantastically successful film franchise, it hasn’t been very smooth sailing for the sexy star in Hollywood, who had received lackluster reviews for her performance.

“It’s interesting coming from modeling, where women rule the industry

“into one where there are so few great female parts and the competition is so much higher,” she said.

The 24-year-old is currently dating action star Jason Statham and is proud to have been a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

“People kind of laugh about [modelling for Victoria's Secret] and think it’s irrelevant, but I don’t know a girl in the world who would put those wings on and not feel, just for a split second, very special,” she added. (ANI)
