Whose gorgeous silhouette is the cover of Maxim‘s Hot 100 issue? Well, it isn’t Miss No. 1 hottie and the real model, Krista Mills, wants some recognition!
Transformers star and Victoria’s Secret model, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was revealed yesterday as Maxim‘s No. 1 hottie, but her image does not grace the cover of the special edition magazine.
“I want people to realize it’s me!” Krista, a lesser-known model tells E! News. “It seems everyone thinks it’s Rosie! I love her but that cover shot is me. People are reporting it’s her, but it’s not.”
“The casting I responded to was for the cover,” Krista explains. “I had no idea Rosie was associated with it and the shoot had nothing to do with Rosie.”
Krista reportedly shot the cover in mid-March in NYC with Maxim‘s team on hand and Antoine Verglas as the photographer.
“For me, the recognition is huge and something I need at this stage in my career,” she admits. “Rosie is No. 1 and that’s great, but I’m just slightly irritated because I’ve been working my butt off.”
But Krista does admit there appears to have been some Photoshopping done.
“My hair is down to my butt in real life, so they definitely Photoshopped that.”
A rep for Maxim told E! News,”The image on the Hot 100 is an in-house design to represent the Hot 100 special section. It’s not Rosie or any of the women in the Hot 100.”
