British Victoria Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who landed the role of the new romantic lead on 'Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon' after Megan Fox's highly-publicized exit, has nothing but praise for the film's director, Michael Bay.

Fox is not reprising her role as Mikaela Banes, a classmate of Shia LaBeouf's human character, Sam, in the film, the third in the franchise. The actress says she walked away from the project, but Bay said in a recent interview that producer Steven Spielberg suggested she get the ax after causing a press firestorm by comparing Bay to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
