This is Huntington-Whiteley’s second cover for the magazine and she shared the cover on Twitter ahead of its release. She wrote: “Hi guys check out my new @ELLEUK cover! What do you think? On sale next week!”
On wanting to have babies with boyfriend Jason Statham: “I always see myself working, but definitely being a mum will be a big part of me. Look, I think my career is very self-indulgent. It’s all about me. I’m not a doctor, I’m not looking after people, I’m not saving children. I’m in the entertainment business. I’m a model. I’m an actress. So it is very self-involved. I think there is naturally a point where you think, ‘I don’t care about myself as number one any more.’ I want to care about other things.”
On the start of her career: “I wasn’t quite tall enough either and I hated it to be honest. There was no individuality, no opportunity to be individuals. I think that people forget you’re human and you just become an object. [In New York] I was constantly reminded that I wasn’t right wherever I went and that was difficult because I’d come from a place where it didn’t matter. For any young girl to be told they’re not good enough, every day, wherever they go.”
On why she persisted: “I don’t know, I just had this thing, that this was where I was going, this was the opportunity that life had presented me with. This was my destiny and I wasn’t going to just pack it all in because these people gave me a hard time – and that’s still my attitude now.” - via Elle UK Magazine.
