Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted in Malibu on Sunday doing some shopping with boyfriend Jason Statham.

The Transformers: Dark Of The Moon star recently revealed that she had to take running lessons prior to filming the new Transformers movie - because director Michael Bay didn't like the way she paced herself.

The model made her acting debut in the blockbuster and she spent two weeks training before the film started.

She says, "I did know how to run but I got into the gym and my trainer said, 'Yeah, we're gonna have to fix that because your run looks somewhat like Phoebe from Friends - so he taught me to run.

"He would (tie) weights onto me with ropes... all these crazy techniques. It's embarrassing."
