Washington: Model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has revealed that she learned to drive only when she landed the leading lady’s role in the new ‘Transformers’ film.

The Victoria`s Secret stunner admits she bought herself a car in her native England when her modelling career took off, but she never learned how to drive it.

Then, when Michael Bay offered her a role in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, she realised she would have to get her licence.

"I was in a movie about cars with no idea how to drive... I just learned to drive because I moved here (Los Angeles),” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
