“It’s been a pretty mental year. One minute you’re really quiet, then you get a phone-call, your whole world changes and you end up spending six months in Africa.”

She’s referring to the shoot in Namibia and Cape Town which co-starred Tom Hardy (“Lawless,” “The Dark Knight Rises”) and Charlize Theron (“Prometheus”).

” ‘It was a lot of work. Making a film is very different from photo-shoots and a lot more is expected from you. But those moments that are fulfilling are like ecstasy – they’re amazing.”

Huntington-Whiteley joked about the creative process, using actor’s lingo.

“When you’ve had a great connection with somebody creatively. That’s the “buzz” actors talk about. There’s also a huge responsibility on leading actors, which I really saw on this film, being in the company of Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult. To be able to be on my second film with actors like that – you would be crazy not to just watch and learn.”

Modeling, acting or back to Victoria’s Secret, she offered little insight in her future.

“I have no master plan, really. I learnt that early on in my career. I never thought that I would be here. If someone had told me at 14 that I would be a model aged 16 I would have laughed.”

“Mad Max: Fury Road” is scheduled for a 2014 release date.
