Coked Out on Rosie

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gained fame as a Victoria’s Secret model, and this year for her starring role in the new Transformer’s movie. What we didn’t know was that she has lately been the subject of intense university… research.

Maybe we should go back to college. Clearly, Harvard is worth every penny of the $50k plus a year undergraduates pay to go there, but who knew there were such great perks. A recent study conducted by the University’s researchers found that the face of an attractive woman triggers reward centres in a man’s brain. This important research reveals that the model’s power over the opposite sex is so strong, it is similar to the effects of cocaine

Test subjects were shown images of attractive females, and brain imaging scans revealed that reward circuitry fired off when they looked at pretty faces. 
A prominent curved forehead, eyes, nose and mouth located relatively low; large eyes, round cheeks and a small chin were among the features men found most attractive.

As reported in the UK Daily Mail, Rosie, whose signature pout has propelled her to fame, is aware of her special powers. Speaking to the latest issue of Australia’s Maxim magazine, the stunning 24-year-old says: ‘They’re funny, because they change color with my mood. ‘They get really, really red when I’m angry or passionate and pale when I’m miserable or tired.”

‘They have a life of their own. They get me in trouble. You know mood rings? I’ve got mood lips.’ Rosie adds: ‘The rest of my body requires a lot of upkeep, but the lips are one thing I don’t have to work on.’

While we can understand the lure of the pout and the mood lips, we’re just not convinced.  We think her appeal is much more than that of just another pretty face.
