Rosie wishes she lived closer to her fam­ily

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 29-year-old model lives in Bev­erly Hills with her fi­ance Ja­son Statham and though she knows be­ing in the US is good for her ca­reer, she strug­gles with the fact she can’t see her loved ones as of­ten as she’d like. She said: “The one big down­side is not hav­ing my fam­ily within reach. I would love to be able to in­vite them over for a roast din­ner, or be able to say to my brother or sis­ter, ‘Why don’t you pop over for a glass of wine tonight?’ but I can’t and it weighs heav­ily on me.” De­spite be­ing Bri­tain’s high­est-earn­ing model, Rosie in­sists she’ll never be com­place­ment as there’ll al­ways be new things she wants to achieve. She said: “I don’t think you can ever sit back and think, ‘I’ve made it now I can re­lax.’ As soon as you start to have that at­ti­tude, that’s when you lose it. “My mum taught me never to be com­pla­cent, I’m al­ways think­ing, ‘What else is there left to do and where I can go now?’ I have al­ways been drawn to women who have built some­thing for them­selves and who are unashamedly them­selves. To me, that’s the true power of a woman.” Rosie’s am­bi­tion and de­sire to suc­ceed stem from her “hum­ble be­gin­nings”. She told Harper’s Bazaar mag­a­zine: “I come from very hum­ble be­gin­nings. I grew up on a farm in Devon and I left school at 16. So when I de­cided to go full­time as a model there was no op­tion to give up. That sur­vival in­stinct is what keeps me fo­cused.”
