See the "Frontrunner" to Replace Megan Fox in Transformers 3
She's more than meets the eye.
Following Megan Fox's departure from the franchise, Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a likely candidate to play Shia LaBeouf's new love interest in Transformers 3.
Although the British beauty lacks acting experience, an insider tells UsMagazine.com that Huntington-Whiteley "has read for the part and is a frontrunner for the role."
According to TheWrap.com, Huntington-Whiteley is currently dating actor Jason Statham.
On May 20, Paramount Pictures confirmed that Fox, 24, would not be returning to the third installment of the $1.5 billion-grossing franchise.
Studio execs said that it had "exercised its option not to put [Fox] in the movie" -- but the actress, through her rep, told Us that she "left on her own accord."
Prior to her departure, Fox and director Michael Bay had traded barbs in the press: she called him "a nightmare to work with," and he spat back that she was "dumb as a brick" and "ungracious."
