Rosie Huntington-Whiteley thinks about her lovers when she poses for sexy photo shoots.

The Victoria's Secret model - who recently split from French actor Olivier Martinez - has revealed she daydreams about boyfriends when she's in front of the camera, because she wants to impress them with the image.

She said: "When it's a sexy photograph, you tend to think about the person that you are with at the time. There are few people I care about seeing the picture. And at the end of the day, that's the person I most want to be proud of the picture.

"Nearly every American guy will tell you that the first time they became aware of their sexuality was flicking through a Victoria's Secret catalogue. It's a huge honour to be part of that."

The 22-year-old beauty - who is known for her womanly curves and bee-stung lips - adores her work and doesn't mind having to makes herself look sexy for the camera.

She explained to GQ magazine: "I am not a shy person when it comes to doing things for my job. I've never done anything that makes me feel uncomfortable.

"All that stuff comes with time. I don't practise. It just happens. When I am working, I become a different character - and yes, there is a bit of skill to it, I guess... then, when the shoot is over and the robe goes on, I am me again."
