Why Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Is So Happy With Her Older Man, Jason Statham

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley with Sugar daddy Jason StathamWhen younger women get into rela­tion­ships with older men, peo­ple always assume that it has to do with money and sex. But in real­ity, not all of these rela­tion­ships are that black and white. Being with an older man can be just as emo­tion­ally grat­i­fy­ing as any other rela­tion­ship. The trick is to know how to make each other happy.

One star who knows this well is 26-year-old Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who has been with her much older man, 45-year-old Jason Statham, for over three years. In a recent inter­view with The Edit, Huntington-Whiteley revealed what makes her rela­tion­ship with Statham so solid: “Jason and I just make each other laugh. Most of the time we’re [piss­ing] our­selves laugh­ing, whis­per­ing com­ments in each other’s ears. Oh, you know. Naughty stuff. I’m not inter­ested in hang­ing out with boys. I have all the man I need!”

Things seem to be going so well for these two that Huntington-Whiteley has even hinted at the pos­si­bil­ity of hav­ing chil­dren with Statham. “I always see myself work­ing, but def­i­nitely being a mum will be a big part of me. Look, I think my career is very self-indulgent…I’m a model. I’m an actress. So it is very self-involved,” she told Elle Mag­a­zine. “I think there is nat­u­rally a point where you think, ‘I don’t care about myself as num­ber one any more.’ I want to care about other things.”

Whether or not these two will have time for kids is a whole other story. Huntington-Whiteley—who already mod­els for Burberry and Victoria’s Secret—has just signed on as the brand ambas­sador for a tan­ning com­pany, while Statham has a string of movies set for release through this year and next. With such busy sched­ules, it’s no won­der a good laugh is all they need to make it work.
