At left, 'Transformers 3' star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley poses for the June 2011 cover of Complex magazine. Eerily similar to previous 'Transformers' femme fatale Megan Fox's October 2008 GQ cover, isn't it?

Is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley sticking her tongue out at Megan Fox? I think so.

In October 2008, Megan Fox stuck her tongue out provocatively at GQ readers. And for most of the past three years, horny boys and perverted men have been obsessed with her. And it’s hard to blame them, because Megan Fox is pretty easy on the eyes. But let’s be honest — she was never talented, and she knew it. In that same issue of GQ, she admitted as much: “I’ve done one movie. And it’s not a movie I want to stand on as far as acting ability goes. I mean—I’m not going to win an Oscar anytime soon. I’m not Meryl Streep.”

So — and fanboys everywhere may hate me for saying this — I’m not too sorry to see her leave the Transformers franchise, no matter how good she looked when lifting the hood of a car or straddling a motorcycle. The second movie wasn’t as good as the first, and I think a big part of that was the wasted time on the drama between Sam (Shia LaBoeuf) being away at college and meeting other girls, including one who inevitably turned out to be a Decepticon with an evil metal tongue.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a 24-year-old British model/actress who has just as little to her credit as Fox did when she starred in the first film, is a perfectly acceptable replacement. I have yet to see her acting ability as this is her first major role, but she seems a little more humbled (and less crazy) than Fox. “I’ve had nine years of working before this kind of movie happened to me,” she told Complex. “I’m really glad I’ve had struggles in my career. When success finally hits you, it helps put things in perspective. We’re so small. You see these kids get success straight away or they grew up with it, and I feel for them ’cause how do they gauge any sense of reality?”

“Kids who get success straight away” sounds like a subtle dig at Fox, doesn’t it? Yeah, she’s definitely sticking her tongue out at her.

And — in case you didn’t notice — Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who appears to be wearing nothing but a Julien MacDonald blazer on the Complex cover, isn’t bad to look at either. But who cares? Honestly, who’ll notice the difference when Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon hits theaters June 29? I’m in it for the toys cool cars that transform into kick-butt alien robots. Autobots, roll out!

  1. Hello there, just turned into aware of your weblog through Google, and found that it’s really informative. I’m going to watch out for brussels. I will appreciate for those who proceed this in future. Numerous people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  2. Maybe. But Rosie’s career in movies hasn’t exactly exploded since her role in the 3rd movie. Megan’s body of work prior to The Transformers movies is a hell of lot more than anything Rosie has done. And her comments in the press that I’ve read, made her sound like a kiss ass. Like someone told her, “don’t piss off Bay or Spielberg because they will fuck your career.”
