"Transformers: Dark of the Moon"

"Transformers: Dark of the Moon" star Shia LaBeouf has made no secret about his fondness for getting sweaty with his costars, and that tradition continued in Times Square on Tuesday night in the company of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and -- Josh Duhamel?

Fear not, Fergie. Pretty much everyone was sweating in their suits and dresses as temperatures in New York topped 80 degrees for the action film's premiere and LaBeouf, Huntington-Whiteley and Duhamel worked the red carpet with costars Tyrese Gibson, Patrick Dempsey, Ken Jeong, Buzz Aldrin and Lester Speight, as well as director Michael Bay.

"Transformers: Dark of the Moon" premiere And poor Huntington-Whiteley -- the Victoria's Secret model just can't get a break. Seems her leading man was "hot and sweaty" during their kissing scenes as well.

"He's dripping with sweat throughout the whole of this movie," she told the Associated Press, "and my poor little makeup artist had to be on hand the whole time we did the kissing scenes."

No word on whether Optimus Prime was sweating when he was tangling with the Decepticons -- or whether his detailer was on call 24/7.

Also spotted: Dwyane Wade with Gabrielle Union, siblings Willow and Jaden Smith, TV personality Carrie Keagan and Dempsey's wife, Jil Fink. Click the pics for more photos from the red carpet.

"Transformers: Dark of the Moon" opened for business in the wee hours Wednesday, ahead of the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
