Models probably don’t get recognized all that often. I’m sure people stare because they’re tall, attractive and countless other people are staring like it’s a wreck on the side of the highway so LET’S ALL STOP AND WATCH THIS PERSON.
The model in this photo is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a former Victoria’s Secret model, current actress and recipient of frequent penis punches to the labia from Hollywood action star Jason Statham. Huntington-Whiteley was traveling recently (which is probably 89% of the job for a model) when a Redditor spotted her in the airport.
According to his comments on Reddit, he didn’t know her name or where he knew her from, but he knew she was famous. After he asked to see her labia he connected the dots. He asked her to pose for a photo with his little cousin, and it wasn’t until after the shot, that he realized the kid was wearing the most appropriate shirt since the guy who took a mugshot photo wearing a shirt with his old mugshot on it.
Well played, little man.
