Shia LaBeouf made headlines last summer when he said he wouldn't be back for any more "Transformers" movies -- but Rosie Huntington-Whiteley says her costar just might be up for more alien-robot action.
"We'll see about that," Huntington-Whiteley told us Monday at the Hollywood Awards, seemingly doubtful about LaBeouf's statement. Asked if the actor could be persuaded to return for another "Transformers," she replied: "I think so. He'll kill me for saying that."
Huntington-Whiteley's role in Michael Bay's "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" was the Victoria's Secret model's first turn on the big screen -- and she said it was more than she ever expected to do as an actress.
"['Transformers'] has opened so many doors for me, and I feel so excited for my future and future ventures and career," said the woman who topped Maxim's Hot 100 list this year.
"I think everybody is always watching, and you're under a microscope. I definitely think I have a lot more hopefully to get the opportunity to show. ... I'm brand new, so I've got a lot to learn."
