Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Tops Maxim‘s Hot 100

'It's a great title to have for a year, and you can have some fun with it,' 'Transformers' star says.

Megan who? Maxim isn’t mourning the loss of Fox in the “Transformers” franchise. The lad mag has named franchise newbie Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as the hottest hottie in 2011, placing her at #1 on the Maxim Hot 100 list.

“Rosie is a true transformer — a Victoria’s Secret stunner who is about to go supernova when she takes over for Megan Fox in the ‘Transformers’ franchise — her talent is as undeniable as her beauty, which is pretty jaw-droppingly undeniable,” Maxim editor in chief Joe Levy said in a statement about bestowing the honor on the British model and actress.

The top 10 is rounded out by Olivia Munn (#2), Katy Perry (#3) (last year’s #1) , Cameron Diaz (#4), Mila Kunis (#5), Bar Refaeli (#6), Anne Hathaway (#7), Natalie Portman (#8), “How I Met Your Mother” star Cobie Smulders (#9) and Jennifer Lawrence (#10).

“It’s a great title to have for a year, and you can have some fun with it, I think,” Huntington-Whiteley said. She appears in the issue wearing a leather jacket, no top and little booty shorts.

The June issue of the magazine drops on May 10, and a bevy of other babes also made the cut. “Jersey Shore” star JWoww lands at #78, Nicki Minaj places at #75, Kim Kardashian places at #35, Britney Spears is #25, Taylor Swift finds herself at #20 and Scarlett Johansson is at #14. Fox, who was #5 last year, placed at #17.

Fans will finally get to see Huntington-Whiteley in “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” when the film opens on July 1.

“I’ve seen the last two movies, so I kind of knew what I was getting into, but obviously not at all as well,” Whiteley said of being a bit overwhelmed by the big movie experience when MTV News spoke to her earlier this spring. “It was a crazy opportunity that was handed to me, and I spent seven months making the movie with a great cast and a great director, and it’s been a roller coaster of a lifetime for sure. I’m still on it, I don’t know if I’m going to get off anytime soon.”
