Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has said her relationship with Jason Statham keeps her grounded in Hollywood.

The 27-year-old model and actress' boyfriend is Expendables actor Jason, who is 20 years her senior, and she told Harper's Bazaar magazine that she thought it was a good thing to be with a fellow Brit now that she lives in LA.

She said: "That's what makes being with an Englishman out there so great. I mean, we live in Hollywood, for f***'s sake. It would be easy to lose touch with reality."

Rosie added that she sometimes found being so far from home hard. "I do battle with wanting to be closer to my family, wanting to call my brother on a Sunday and ask him to come round and watch The X Factor, or be there to support my sister, or go shopping with my mum. Not being able to do that can get me down."

She explained that there were certain pressures that came with being in the spotlight: "I do try and make sure that I conduct myself in a way that I think it's appropriate, but at the same time, I'm still going to live my life.

"I'm not the girl falling out of a nightclub with my kickers around my ankles."

Rosie has been working on a range of underwear for Marks and Spencer, which she was keen should appeal to women of all different ages and sizes.

The model said: "I was really conscious that I didn't want to put out a product where women would think, 'Oh, she's made something that only a twenty-something model can wear.' That's no fun to me.

"I love women and I wanted to make something for all women. Real women... Women actually come up to me and show me their bras. I get tweets and texts, and people will Instagram what they're wearing, and it's women of all different shapes and sizes and ages, and that makes me very proud."

The full interview appears in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, on sale August 5 and also available as a digital edition.
