Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: I Was An Ugly Betty At 15

Rosie recently spoke with Harpar’s Bazaar about her appearance when she was younger.

“I was a bit of an Ugly Betty when I was 15…I had braces,” Rosie said of her interning days when she would be “getting coffee, lighting people’s cigarettes.”

“It’s interesting coming from modeling, where women rule the industry, into one where there are so few great female parts and the competition is so much higher,” Rosie said of breaking into acting.

    Oh give it a rest Rosie. Ugly Betty to whose standards? Hate these beautiful dumb biznitches always saying this garbage to make it seem like they are ‘normal’ and just like you. It’s NOT likeable. You need a new PR person.

    I lover her, she is georgous and in real absolutely stunning. Seen her a couple of times in Liberty in the UK up close and she is really beautiful and very natural. Have seen photos of her as a teen and she was the ugly duckling but she sure has turned into a swan. Love this couple – they just look so georgous together and when he smiles ahhhh

    actually you try being the tallest,thinnest girl at a young age such as 13 already. That is not necessarily the look boys go for…its kind of ‘odd ball-ish”, but of course those traits are very much wanted for an adult so of course its stunning when they grow up. For a kid, they just want to fit in and being taller and skinnier than everyone else stands out like a sore thumb.

    This woman has nothing to offer intelligently. And she won’t gain any sympathy about talking how braces made her the “ugly duckling”. Yeah right.

    …braces makes a person UGLY?! OKAY, girl. Reality check. Clearly the only thing ugly about her is her personality.

    Its hip to wear braces now as a child but it wasn’t hip 10 years ago and “ugly betty” is just an expression. She is really beautiful and has a stunning personality – she is really funny and completely natural and not a b”"ch at all. So yeah thats why there are all these haters. Go Rosie

    The braces may be gone but I think you are still an unattractive girl. And the relationship with JS? It will be over soon … what do you expect with a 20 year age difference? So over you.

    I went to school with her a year below and honestly it’s a load of rubbish, she might have had a few names but in general she was extremely popular and thought of as the most attractive girl in school she was even voted most likely to become a model, and she’s not as tall as the press says either no more than 5.8
