Let's face it: If you had to pick five Hollywood starlets to become your wives in a post-apocalyptic future, chances are you would at least consider giving one of those slots to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. It's just simple logic.

And that's why today's announcement that Huntington-Whiteley has officially joined the cast of "Mad Max: Fury Road" as one of the film's "five wives" makes so much sense.

Hey, if she's tough enough to face off against the Decepticons, chances are she can handle a few mutants on motorcycles, right?

Rebooting the "Mad Max" universe, "Mad Max: Fury Road" stars Tom Hardy as the titular hero. And this time around, he's dealing with not one but five damsels in distress, as Zoe Kravitz revealed to MTV.

"There's a group of five women being taken from one place to another place, and I'm one of those women," Kravitz said in an interview last month. "So they call us the five wives. There are five women who are five wives. No, I'm not playing all five wives."

Well, according to Just Jared, we now know who at least two of those other wives will be, as "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" star Huntington-Whiteley has joined Kravitz and Riley Keough in the sci-fi epic.

Hey, the future might be pretty bleak in the "Mad Max" universe, but at least they still have hot models. And any future with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in it is one we're happy to live in, mutants and all.
