Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has credited boyfriend Jason Statham with keeping her grounded in Los Angeles.

The supermodel has praised her 'The Expendables 3' actor beau for keeping her feet on the ground. Both Rosie and Jason grew up in England and she believes this has helped them survive living in Hollywood.

Talking in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine, the blonde beauty explained: ''That's what makes being with an Englishman out there so great. I mean, we live in Hollywood for f**k's sake. It would be easy to lose touch with reality.''

Rosie - who was raised in South West England - admits living in LA does have its drawbacks as she often finds herself pining for her family.

She added: ''I battle with wanting to be closer to my family, wanting to call my brother on a Sunday and ask him to come round and watch 'The X Factor', or be there to support my sister, or go shopping with my mum. Not being able to do that can get me down.''

Despite being one of the world's most famous women and being in a celebrity coupling, the 27-year-old catwalk beauty insists she avoids the fame game and is adamant she'll never get caught out falling out of nightclubs looking dishevelled.

She said: ''I do try and make sure that I conduct myself in a way that I think is appropriate, but at the same time I'm still going to live my life ... I'm not the girl falling out of a nightclub with my knickers around me ankles.''
