Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Tops Maxim’s Hot 100

Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley-Maxim-Hot-100-List-2011How Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will fare in her acting debut in the upcoming “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” remains a mystery, but whether the Victoria’s Secret model is hotter than the actress she replaced in the franchise, Megan Fox, has already been answered by men’s magazine Maxim.

The 24-year-old Huntington-Whiteley topped Maxim’s┬áHot 100 List this year, easily outranking Fox, who landed on 17th spot. Huntington-Whiteley has been a Victoria’s Secret angel since 2006, but will be entering unchartered territory with “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” which debuts in the U.S. on July 1. The British model, who is currently dating actor Jason Statham, bagged the coveted role as Shia LaBeouf’s new romantic interest when director Michael Bay decided not to bring back Fox.

Coming in second place behind Huntington-Whiteley was Olivia Munn, followed by last year’s no.1, Katy Perry. Cameron Diaz and Mila Kunis rounded out the top five of this year’s list, which includes the recently bestowed Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, wife of England’s Prince William.
