Rosie Huntington Whiteley: I Was Bullied to Lose Weight

Rosie Huntington Whiteley: I Was Bullied to Lose Weight

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and boyfriend Jason Statham arrive at a friend’s house on Tuesday (May 31) in Los Angeles.

Over the weekend, Jason, was in Monaco where he attended the Formula One Grad Prix practice in Monte Carlo.

Rosie, 24, recently opened up about being told to lose weight when she first kicked off her career.

“When I started modeling, I was definitely heavier. I was quite voluptuous in fact. I had a real baby face and baby fat. But I was a baby! I was told I had to get into better shape, but I’m quite stubborn so I didn’t,” she told Elle‘s July issue (via Telegraph).

“I can’t remember a time where I really battled with my body,” she added, “but I can remember being asked to lose weight and battling with the advice. It hurt me. Especially as my baby fat naturally melted away as I got older … You can bullied as a young model, but there was a point where I found my voice, effectively.”

poor girl. she seems very sweet and genuine and honest. She looks healthier now and maybe as she gets more famous she will be able to push the modelling industry to loosen their grip on girls weight.
It really is sad.. I mean doing what you love is about being happy and girls who love modelling are forced into misery or completely rejected.

Is she expecting sympathy from this?

Waaaaa, waaaaaaa…it doesn’t matter what others say the choice is always yours what to do with your life. Bullying is just an excuse for a weak mind.

I AM SO HAPPY THAT US PEOPLE ARE REALIZING THAT CELEBRITIES ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT NONSENSICAL THINGS. WE ARE TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT CELEBRITIES AND THEIR LOOKS. THE WORLD IS TURNING COLD – RICH PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS CRYING ABOUT THINGS AND NON-FAMOUS PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING: NO JOBS, NATURAL DISASTERS, DEATH, VIOLENCE, GANGS, RAPE, MOLESTATION, GOING IN DEBT JUST TO GO TO COLLEGE, NOT HAVING FOOD OR FRESH WATER, EXTREME POVERTY, ETC. AND WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE SYMPATHY BECAUSE A MODEL WAS BIG AND WAS TOLD TO LOOSE WEIGHT TO EARN $10,000 PER PHOTO-SHOOT. GIVE ME A BREAK.! TELL TO THE JUDGE! WE THE PEOPLE ARE SICK OF CELEBRITIES. WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE EFFECTS OF THE HURRICANES, TORNADOES, TSUNAMIS, ETC. AND WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE SYMPATHY FOR YOU IN YOUR BIG MANSION??? HAHAHAHAH

Pipe down. I highly doubt she is trying to gain anyone’s symathy , nor, is she “crying” about anything. She was simply asked personal questions in an interview and she answered them. HAOFH, you sound a little bitter and jealous. If I were you, I wouldn’t read any more articles about famous people…They just seem to get your panties in a bunch!

HAOFH…..Just curious? What are you doing on the Just Jared website? I think “you the people” are probably into celebs a bit more than the way in which you are trying to portray yourself. He he.

They asked, she answered. Stop hating on the fierce model goddess

ok everyone is jumping on the bullying bandwagon, she wasn’t ‘bullied’ she was told as all models are that if they want to make it in the industry they have to make certain changes and do things a certain way. This is so stupid.
