Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is glad ''disgraceful pictures'' from her early career aren't online.

The 27-year-old beauty - who was catapulted to the spotlight after signing with Victoria's Secret in 2006 - admits there are an ''archive'' of images taken when she first began modelling which she'd rather not share.

Speaking at the Vogue Festival, she said: ''I've seen the best and worst parts of the industry.

''I've gotten to be exposed to some not so fabulous photographers. There is definitely a real archive of disgraceful pictures.

''They don't actually exist on the internet because they are so old, thankfully they happened early on in my career.''

Rosie - who is dating hunk Jason Statham - was initially told modelling ''wasn't the world for her'' and although she has succeeded she's ''learnt'' from previous mistakes.

She added: ''I try not to regret things generally in life because generally it is something you really wanted to do at the time.

''You learn from mistakes and move on. There is no way you can learn otherwise.''
