The 49-year-old actor is perceived to be among the toughest men in Hollywood - but his fiancée Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has debunked the myth, revealing he can't bear to be apart from his pet pooches.

Rosie shared: "Everyone thinks he's like some kind of meathead. For me, I'm like, I only know him as being hilarious. I know a totally different side of him. He's really playful."

Asked whether he Skypes their pets, the blonde beauty said: "Every day. It's like a little family. Everybody gets to say hi."

And despite the glitz and glamour that surround the British duo in Los Angeles, Rosie insisted the couple still enjoy the simple things in life.

Asked how they like to fill their spare time, she told C Magazine: "To be honest with you, whenever J and I are just at home together, making dinner and watching a movie with the dogs around, or sitting in the garden."

Rosie, 29, announced via Instagram in February that she is expecting her first child with her fiancé.

The model showed off her growing baby bump in a bikini on the photo-sharing website, with the accompanying caption reading: "Very happy to share that Jason and I are expecting!! Lots of love Rosie x Photo by @jasonstatham"

Rosie previously admitted she would love to start a family with 'Furious 7' star Jason, who she got engaged to in 2016 after six years of dating.

However, Rosie also confessed she was unsure where the couple would raise their future children.

She shared: "Having a family is something I think about, for sure, and whether I'd live here in America or in England.

"But it's not always as simple as that. I have no idea what will happen, but it'll be interesting to find out, right? And nothing will be perfect, I'm sure."
