Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on Feminism, Ambition & Acting

British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has candidly shared her views on feminism, saying she is a strong and ambitious woman who wants all of the same rights as a man: "I’m somebody who wants to have all the same rights as a man. If that’s what makes a feminist then so be it. I’m lucky because my mum raised me to be strong and to have ambition and drive and to reach for the stars, so to speak, to never put limitations on what could be achieved in life. I feel really excited about where we are as women. I think ambition is a great quality in a woman." 

She isn't actively pursuing an acting career but is grateful for the roles she has played so far: "Will I do another movie? I don’t know. It’s not something I’m actively pursuing or have a lot of headspace for at this time. Which was always my attitude with Transformers and Mad Max, you know. I never set out to be an actress. I was in the right place at the right time; I was asked to do an audition and then doors opened. I think you’re really lucky to get asked to do something new, and to be paid to do it, so I jumped at both opportunities. But I definitely would not call myself an actress." 

She loves her lingerie line and is proud of her work: "The proudest accomplishment of my entire career is the Rosie For Autograph M&S collection. I always wanted it to be more than just another celebrity collaboration. I love both the creative and business sides of it – all the aspects of building a brand. You provide your customer with what your customer wants."
