We knew it was coming, but director Michael Bay finally confirmed that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been chosen for the coveted female lead role in Transformers 3.
So long, Megan Fox.
So what was it that sealed the deal for Huntington-Whiteley? Perhaps the see-through lingerie she wore to audition? According to Hollywood Life, the British Victoria's Secret model wore "a white transparent lingerie top and panties to her love scene audition with Shia LaBeouf".
"She had to meet Shia to see if they gelled," a 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."
The same source said Huntington-Whiteley should learn from Megan Fox's mistakes and keep her attitude in check.
"No matter what people spin or say, Megan Fox was fired. She was very bitchy on the first two films; she always had an attitude. So it wasn't a surprise that she got booted from the third film. Michael [Bay] accepted her behavior but didn't like the fact she would refuse to go to events and other things that Michael thought would help in the promotion of the films. They definitely didn't get along, but basically the only person who CAN get along with him is Shia!"
Sounds like Rosie has her work cut out for her.
Filming, which is expected to take four and half months, has begun in California and will continue in Chicago, Detroit, Washington and Cape Canaveral, Fla., as well as overseas in Russia and an undisclosed African country.
