Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is with Jason Statham for "stability".

The stunning model-and-actress has been dating the 'Hummingbird' actor for three years and admits she likes having the action star to lean on after a tough day at work in the fashion industry.

She explained: "Many models are in long-term relationships for stability. Admittedly, not always with great men, but it gives them something to come home to, something grounding. That's how I see my relationship."

The 26-year-old catwalk beauty adds that her 45-year-old beau is a particularly calming influence "when s**t hits the fan".

Rosie also revealed that she used to get so caught up reading negative comments made about her online, it affected her confidence and made her feel "insecure".

She added to the new issue of Britain's ELLE magazine: "I read everything on the internet and I got destroyed by it. I panicked. I was unhappy because I was nervous and insecure, so I cut it off. Today I am in a healthier and happier place."

It was recently claimed that 'Fast & Furious 7' star Jason is set to propose to Rosie, with a source claiming their relationship is "very serious".
