Jason Statham, the Word’s favorite bald man next to Bruce Willis, is going to make it official with girlfriend Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, according to Us Weekly.

“I hear he’ll propose soon,” a source tells the magazine. The two have been dating for over three years. “Their connection is very serious and physical.” And Huntington-Whiteley herself clearly isn’t bothered by their 19-year age difference. “I’m not interested in hanging out with boys,” she recently said in an interview with the Edit. “I have all the man I need.”

In a recent interview with Metro, Statham shared the secret to his action-star success which is that he doesn’t have one. “I just kind of tumbled into it. I never had an idea to do it. I had a ton of years of experience in marital arts and gymnastics. When I started I was just like, ‘OK, now I get to throw some silly stuff around. Let’s see if I can do it,’” he told us. “The next thing you know it worked. I wasn’t being cast in period dramas back in England. You have to figure out some other way to make money.”


Follow Metro’s Managing Editor Dorothy Robinson on Twitter @dorothyatmetro. Her love of bald men stems from her husband, who rocks a pretty mean shaved head. Sorry, Jason and Bruce.
