The fox who out-foxed Megan is dating Jason Statham and has been for over a year. He is 20 years older than she is but the 24 year old doesn't think age matters and says that her role in Transformers 3 has made her relationship with Statham stronger. According to Whiteley Statham couldn’t have been more supportive throughout the filming. Apparently he even bought her razor thin stunt pads so she wouldn’t get hurt on set. The couple has a lot in common including the fact that they are both British actors who have made it in Hollywood.
Whitely was voted FHM magazines sexiest woman in the world this year. Great for her, but maybe difficult in some respects if you’re the guy dating her. One might expect Statham to be jealous or over protective but apparently he has encouraged her to broaden and extend herself both professionally and personally. Smart move. So what kind of guy do you have to be to land a woman like Whiteley?
Jason Statham is no slouch himself. As a teenager he placed 12th in the World Diving Championships in 1992. He was also a member of Britain's National Diving Squad for twelve years. He has studied Wing Chun kung fu, karate, kickboxing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu and has a purple belt in the latter. The swimming and sports skills have meant that even these days Statham does his own stunt shots in movies. His media life began when he was spotted by a talent agent specialising in athletes while training at London's Crystal Palace National Sports Centre. Afterwards, he became a model for the clothing brand French Connection. Through that connection he was introduced to Guy Ritchie and the rest as they say, is Hollywood history. All in all this is a very cool couple.
