The model and Transformers star invited her boyfriend to spend the holidays with her family in the English countryside and the group went out on an early morning walk to ring in the festivities.
But the trip ended in terror when the couple came face-to-face with a bull.
Huntington-Whiteley tells Britain's Guardian Weekend magazine, "All of a sudden, we turned a corner on this country lane and there was a bull. It was pretty intimidating, because he had his ladies with him, and that's when you don't want to mess with a bull.
"We threw ourselves over a wall and ran as fast as we could. It was funny - once we'd got away."
