Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Business Ventures
While Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was walking runways, she also made a strategic decision to enter the design side of the business, as well, publicly stating that she has always wanted a form of job security that wasn’t solely based on her looks.

2. Rose Inc.
While pregnant with her first child in 2017, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley came to the realization that she wanted even more control and stability within her professional life. So, she launched her very own brand, Rose Inc., which officially launched its products in 2021.
Originally a beauty website that launched in 2018, Rose Inc. currently offers both makeup and skincare lines, and proudly sells products that are both vegan and cruelty-free, which is reflective both of Rosie Huntington Whiteley’s personal values, and what her target customer audience desires, as she discovered during her market research.

Jason Statham was born on July 26, 1967, making him a full 20 years older than Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. However, the two seem to be blissfully happy.
They’ve been together since 2009 when they met at a party in London, and are parents to two children together. Their son, Jack, was born in June 2017, and their daughter, Isabella, was born very recently on February 2, 2022.

The two were confirmed to be engaged in 2016, though they have not officially tied the knot yet- given how blissfully happy they seem together and their growing family, at this point, it’s unlikely that a marriage license will have a large impact on their lives.
Jason Statham’s Net Worth
While Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has undeniably had an amazing career and amassed an enviable net worth, so has her partner. Jason Statham has a net worth of approximately $90 million.

He has been in dozens of films since the late 1990s which have grossed multiple billions of dollars in global box office revenue. Overall, Rosie and Jason’s current children, alongside any future children they have together, will no doubt be set for life.
Overall, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been extremely successful in all aspects of her life so far and shows no signs of slowing down.

Not only is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley a model on the clock… she’s also a model off the clock.
In April 2016, Rosie wasn’t very accommodating to her fans that followed her around during a trip to the airport. As it turns out, it wasn’t personal.
The model was actually trying to pose for photos to use with her new column in online beauty magazine Violet Gray.

The English actress was spotted strutting her stuff at Los Angeles International Airport as she made her way to the check-in counter.
Rosie wore a casual gray tee from Frame paired with striped pants from Chloé and layered under a Saint Laurent blazer.
The model-turned-actress styled her chic ensemble with a top handle tote from Versace and sunglasses from Saint Laurent.
She finished up her airport look with black Manolo Blahnik sandals.

Rosie took her quest to get good paparazzi photos seriously. She ignored all fan requests for autographs and brushed past all the photographers.

In 2018, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley launched a new venture called Rose Inc. that is dedicated to her “insider” beauty content. In a December 2019 interview with Jimmy Choo, she called it her most daring achievement.
“I think my most daring achievement was deciding to set up my own business, Rose Inc. about 18 months ago. Every day there’s a new challenge, but every day is equally as rewarding. ”

Growing up on a farm in Devon, a county part of South West England, before being discovered by Profile Model Management at the age of 16, Rosie created the website to share her passion for beauty.
“It was really about creating a community of people who love beauty. Beauty has been a passion of mine since I can remember and I started to observe how positively friends and followers across my social platforms responded and engaged when I shared anything that was beauty-related. I’m always being asked for tips—which products I use—and tricks from the industry. So, I really wanted to create a platform where people could come and learn, and I could share all of the things that I’ve picked up over the past 16 years as a model.”
In September 2015, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley brought a designer touch to an early morning gym session in Los Angeles.
