Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was mocked at school for having small breasts and big lips
The Victoria`s Secret beauty is known for having a seductive pout, but she admits the distinctive facial feature caused her a lot of heartache when she was growing up. Rosie never felt confident about her looks when she was younger and her school friends were often unkind about her features and unusual name.
"I was the shortest kid in my year," she said. "I was teased because I had no breasts and huge lips. And because of my double-barrelled name, people thought I was super posh, which is not actually the case."
Rosie grew up in a small countryside village in Britain and as a teenager she became happier with her looks. As her confidence grew, she dreamed of a career in the fashion industry and was voted the `girl most likely to become a supermodel` by her peers when she was 13. Rosie covered her bedroom walls with posters of her favourite models, including Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, and hoped she would one day make it onto the catwalk.
"I dreamed of glamour, but it didn`t really enter my mind to be a model. Those girls just didn`t seem real to me," she explained to the British edition of GQ magazine. "Farm life was pretty boring and I was itching to get out. I knew I always wanted to go to London."
