Rosie Huntington-Whiteley insists her career was "chosen" for her. The 27-year-old model-and-actress feels "proud" when she is selected for a job but is aiming to be in a position where her fate doesn't lie in anyone else's hands. She said: "Being a model, being an actress--it's not decided by you. You're chosen. You're cast, and that's fantastic, of course. There is always a sense of pride when you make the cut, but there has always been a big part of me that wants to make things happen for myself. I'd like to get myself into a position where I'm starting something on my own. That's my focus for this year." Rosie is very aware of her own image and takes care to surround herself with people who won't be bad for her reputation. She explained: " There's a quote I have always liked by Will Rogers, 'It takes a lifetime to build a good reputation, but you can lose it in a minute'."
