Susan Shaw, famously known for turning down the advances of Sir Rod Stewart and also posing naked with Formula One driver James Hunt, died on Wednesday. Her daughter Kim Shaw, 37, has confirmed the news in a statement.
She told The Sun: “I’m really proud of her and her work. She travelled all over the world and met amazing people.
“She was also good friends with Linda Lusardi and Samantha Bond.
“Her friend told me Rod Stewart pursued her and even contacted her agent to ask her out. But she wasn’t interested.”
Susan modelled well into her 50s and was fictionalised in the 2013 movie Rush, starring Chris Hemsworth as James Hunt.
