Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has resorted to working out in her garage to try and keep in shape during the coronavirus lockdown.
The British model opened up about her personal life during a Q&A session on her Instagram Stories on Thursday, and revealed that while she’s holed up at home in Los Angeles with fiance Jason Statham and their two-year-old son Jack, she’s still trying to keep active.
“I have been using the @bodybysimone app the last few weeks, which has been a great way to get moving and dancing. We turned our garage into a makeshift gym,” Rosie replied when asked what her favourite quarantine workout was.
The star also said she was embracing a more comfortable style while self-isolating at home during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Sweats or relaxed dresses,” the 32-year-old shared, adding that her go-to loungewear brands are Leset, Les Tien, Anine Bing, and Toteme.
Elsewhere in the Q&A session, the Transformers: Dark of the Moon star gave a rare insight into her family life with fellow Brit Jason, and told a follower that their toddler has a “proper English accent” despite living in the U.S.
“He’s doing great,” she shared. “We are lucky to (be) enjoying lots of family time together at the minute. He’s turning three in a few months, which I can’t believe. Currently, we are attempting potty training!”
And when asked what advice she would give to herself as a young woman, Rosie shared an inspirational quote from Keeping Up with the Kardashians momager Kris Jenner.
“You have the capacity to believe in yourself more than anyone,” the blonde beauty replied. “Dream big, and I quote Kris Jenner here – if somebody says ‘no’, you’re asking the wrong person.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has recalled how she felt “unprotected” on some of her early photoshoots.
The British model is one of the most-sought after names in the fashion industry, having fronted campaigns for the likes of Burberry, Paige Denim and Marks & Spencer.
Rosie has now been working in the business for 15 years, and in light of the #MeToo movement gaining momentum following a wave of sexual harassment scandals rocking Hollywood in recent months, has now described how she often didn’t feel comfortable on some shoots.
“There’s definitely been instances where I’ve felt unprotected and moments where I found myself in situations that were uncomfortable,” she told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. “The fashion industry is so relaxed and casual, there’s this expectation on models that the more up for it you are, the better, the further you’ll go along in your career.”
Rosie went on to explain that there have been instances where she didn’t speak out because she feared she would lose her job or upset people. And she finds it frustrating that modelling still isn’t considered to be “a real career”.
“With modelling, it’s always been deemed as not a real career and there’s a lot of expectation on girls that the better the model you are, the quieter you are and the least amount of fuss you make,” the 30-year-old shared. “Over the last few years, what’s been really great for me is that I’ve managed to work myself into a position where I’m able to have my voice heard and work with people who want to empower me.”
In addition to modelling, Rosie has broken into the film industry with appearances in movies such as 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Interestingly, the blonde beauty explained that movie sets are often much better organised and regulated than fashion shows and photoshoots.
“I’ve been lucky enough to work on a couple of films as an actress. There’s a union, there’s insurance, there’s regulations, there’s work hours, there’s boundaries,” she said.
