Rosie Huntington-Whiteley owes more to Victoria’s Secret than a congratulations video.
The British lingerie model, who recently won Megan Fox’s role in “Transformers 3,” wore a white transparent lingerie top and panties to her love scene audition with Shia LaBeouf, Hollywood Life reports.
“She had to meet Shia to see if they gelled,” an on-set source told the magazine. “Having her in as little clothing as possible was just the icing on the cake. When she walked down a staircase in that outfit – wow.”
Last week, deadline.com confirmed that Jason Statham’s girlfriend was Fox’s successor in the third installment of Michael Bay’s blockbuster.
Following the announcement, Victoria’s Secret released a video montage congratulating Huntington-Whiteley on her first movie role.
The 23-year-old Brit became the “T3″ front-runner – beating out Sarah Wright and SI cover girl Brooklyn Decker – after auditioning for Bay in early May.
The filmmaker only had a week left to decide who would take the place of Fox.
“No matter what people spin or say, Megan Fox left on her on terms,” the source told Hollywood Life. “She was very tired of Michael, he always had an attitude. So it wasn’t a surprise she had enough.”
