Less than a month after ET broke news that Megan Fox would not return for 'Transformers 3,' Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been announced as the new female lead.

According to Michael Bay's blog, the 'Transformers' director previously worked with Huntington-Whiteley in the Victoria's Secret "A Thousand Fantasies" ad.

ET interviewed the 23-year-old British model when we visited the tropical set of Victoria's Secret's 2010 bathing suit catalog on Sir Richard Branson's Necker Island in the Caribbean.
