British Olympic diver Tom Daley continues to rack up famous fans. The English model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, known for playing Carly Spencer in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, has also admitted she has a crush on washboard abs Daley – according to Britain’s Mail.
Huntington-Whiteley, who’s already dating one of Britain's hottest actors, 44-yearold Jason Statham (The Expendables 2), confessed so on The Jonathan Ross Show’s episode that airs on ITV Saturday night.
“Tom Daley is pretty perfect, in my opinion,” reportedly says the English beauty on the show. She also explains that even though she wasn't able to see much of the Olympic action this summer, she did caught a glimpse of the 18-year-old hunk in the shower.
“I’ve been in Africa for the last ten weeks so there wasn’t much opportunity but I saw some of it, I saw the most important thing – Tom Daley in the shower,” the model and actress said referring to Daley’s iconic shower moments right after executing each of his dives during the London 2012 Olympics.
Huntington-Whiteley also says she is “looking forward” to the day when she finally gets to meet the Daley. She also talked about her relationship with Statham, who surprised her with an “unusual, but romantic” gift when he found out she was doing her own stunts in the Transformers movie. “Jason was filming in Australia at the time and he said, ‘Babe, you’ve got to wear stunt pads,’” explained the model.
Daley's personal and sentimental life has been the subject of much speculation since the 18-year-old perennially Speedo-clad diver won bronze during the London 2012 Olympic Games. Besides Huntington-Whiteley, Tom Daley has been romantically linked to fellow diver Kassidy Cook -- even when Daley's own mom claims the diver "has not had a proper girlfriend."
