Rosie Huntington-Whiteley says it's crazy to date Jason Statham, but we're fairly sure he would say it's wild dating her!

The insanely good-looking couple have been together for several years now, but the model-turned-actress tells Net-a-Porter.com's The EDIT that her relationship makes it hard to enjoy any semblance of privacy.

"People go crazy for Jason," she says. "It can become a frenzy walking down the street with him."

She explains that his notoriety in action films has made his fans feel like they know him personally, so sometimes she feels like she can't get a second to herself. But whenever she loses perspective, her mom is always there to remind her how lucky she is to be so successful—with or without a boyfriend.

"People relate to him and feel like he's the guy they grew up with, so it's tricky. You can't always do the right thing..." she adds. "People will say, 'What do you mean you don't do your own grocery shopping?' But I go to the supermarket and there are 20 photographers watching it."

She continues, "Doing normal stuff just isn't the same. I still get self-conscious when people recognize me. But my mum always says, 'Life doesn't give you an opportunity like this to turn down.'"

Since they have been dating for five years, it's easy for the idea of the future and family to come up in conversations. She tells The EDIT that both of those things are definitely on her mind. "Having a family is something I think about for sure, and whether I'd live here in America or in England. But it's not always as simple as that," she explains.

"I have no idea what will happen, but it'll be interesting to find out, right? And nothing will be perfect, I'm sure."

As for her professional life, Huntington-Whiteley says she has always been considered more of a "commercial model." Sometimes casting directors even told her she looked too healthy.

"I started modeling when I was 16, which is just mental, and when I used to go to castings for the shows they would see me and say, 'She looks too wholesome. She's too healthy!' And that's bad because…? So I would think, 'Well, thanks. I'll take that as a compliment,'" she says. "I like that word, wholesome, so it's hard for me to think of it as negative."

You go, girl!
