London: With a Hollywood film and an A-list boyfriend, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has turned her back on the modeling job that propelled her to stardom.

The 24-year-old model turned-actress, who is dating Hollywood star Jason Statham, has confirmed that she will not take part in this month's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show alongside her fellow 'Angels' because of a diary clash, reported Daily Mail online.

It is the first time since her 2006 debut that she has missed America's famous catwalk extravaganza, which is being filmed in New York.

"Rosie is focused on perfecting her acting. She doesn't want to be known as just a model. She has been taking acting classes, but she hasn't filmed anything since 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon'," a source said.

"Rosie was approached to participate in the annual Victoria's Secret show, but unfortunately couldn't make the dates work due to a big campaign shoot. She remains close to the VS family," her spokeswoman said.
