EXCLUSIVE! 'Transformers' Stars Rosie Huntington-Whiteley & Shia LaBeouf Have Great Chemistry On-Screen…And Off!

070610_transformersMegan who? Insiders tell HollywoodLife.com the newest Transformers hottie is fitting in perfectly with director Michael Bay and even manages to distract co-star Shia!

Forget Megan Fox! Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has become the new Transformers maven, and our spies tell us the former Victoria’s Secret model and her on-screen love interest, Shia LaBeouf, have quickly become two peas in a pod… even when the camera’s AREN’T rolling.

“Everyone keeps calling Rosie ‘the new Megan Fox,'” one insider dishes to HollywoodLife.com. “Last Friday during the shoot, she and Shia kept laughing out loud together and the crew was desperately trying to get them to work. They seemed so distracted by each other!”

Rosie, 23, was chosen at the last minute by director Michael Bay to replace Shia’s former love interest, Megan Fox, in Transformers 3. The newly-paired couple shot scenes inside and outside of the Creative Artists Agency building in Century City, Calif., on July 2 — and insiders say the two leads have palpable chemistry.

“It’s a much more relaxed set and everyone is in a good mood,” one insider tells us, explaining that despite his seemingly easy-going approach, 24-year-old Shia takes his work with Rosie very seriously.

“Shia is loving Rosie’s work,” our spy dishes. “He likes the fact he is molding her, so to speak, in her acting debut. Shia is taking the job seriously on her behalf.”

Hopefully history repeats itself, BFFs! Shia never hooked up with Megan on set and we hope he doesn’t with Rosie, either, since he’s already taken by his Wall Street co-star, Carey Mulligan.

Why does the Transformers & Rosie have to keep playing on Megan’s name?

Every mention of Transformers characters has to have “MEGAN” in it!? they can’t do it on their own?

Who says rosie slept with michael bay to get her role? get a life people. the same could be said of megan fox if thats how you’re gonna play it. Stop being sexist and disgusting just because she is a young attractive female. doesn’t mean she has sex to win roles. grow up

She seems nice, and anybody would be an upgrade on Megan’s drab performance. She’s really cute in her short interviews on youtube too. I might like her.

Shes got such a sexy english accent. its hot. shes a lot prettier than megan, megan looks odd now, especially with the surgery, and her body isn’t all that. its too muscly, like someone who used to be a bodybuilder. im glad shia and rosie are getting along.

As long as she is better than Megan Flops its all good! From what ive seen Rosie has a much warmer, funnier, bubbly and approachable personality than Megan Flops has displayed and shes more suited to the cuteness the character of Mikaela Banes should be. Go Rosie!

Que some Megan Fox fans calling it BS. They’re just mad that Rosie is getting better feed back from the TF cast and crew than Megan did.

Seriously. Why are they even making another one of these movies?? The first one was decent at best. Talk about beating a dead horse.

Wonder why they never get a credible actress for these films? Shia is great – he deserves someone equally as great to work with!!

I think anyone will be better than Megan Fox. Shia better watch it, though…his gf is way classier than either of these two Transformers girls.

You are all wack. Rosie might as well be a blow-up doll. Shia deserves somebody with brains and beauty like Carey. Rosie can stick with sleeping with directors to get parts.

Yeah, Megan is trash but at least she was good in the first Transformers.

I can’t believe that Shia signed on for another one of these. I guess money talks, but still. After the last horrific movie, I would have thought he would turn to better films. Wall Street 2 looks excellent though.

As far as Rosie is concerned, I think she’ll do a great job filling Megan’s shoes. She is a hot model (not actress) who probably delivers lines just as terribly as Megan did.

I hope you’re right, Kirstin. Shia better realize that he’s got one of the most talented, adorable girls in Hollywood and not mess it up by hooking up with a skank that slept with Michael Bay just to get a part. Love you, Shia!
