    Involving the "casting couch", maybe. I can't think of too many other reasons why she has the career she has....

    I'm not a Megan Fox fan at all, but I think it's onmly fair to show the whole quote:
    I think that for a starlet on the rise (although maybe not so much anymore in her case) it's reasonable to be suspicious of people who just give out compliments left and right, because it IS usually forced and fake.

    You're absolutely right. But if it bothers her that much, she could find another profession. Hopefully one that doesn't involve being in any more movies :p

    I don't see anything wrong with the quote, but yeah, if she doesn't like fake, she's in the wrong place. There are plenty of other non narcissistic jobs out there.

    A striking face and a great body will take you places in Hollywood. It doesn't mean that the girl had to do the casting couch to get there. It has been pretty much proven that pretty people are more successful than the average looking folks.

    ---------

    I don't see anything wrong with what Megan is saying. Maybe she is realistic about her acting abilities at this stage of her career, and she knows that anyone that is gushing to her face about how talented she is is just blowing smoke. Does anyone remember when Jessica Biel hinted/mentioned in an interview that she had lost some acting gigs because she's too beautiful? Good Gawf. Now that made me roll my eyes. The girl couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. That's the only reasonwhy she's not an A-list actress and isn't getting the great gigs.

    All I have to say is that Ms. Fox needs to lay off the injectables. She has clearly done stuff to her face, as evidenced here which is completely unnecessary IMO at her age.

    I suspect the sentence got cut off, for instance maybe she meant to say " I Hate Being Told I'm Talented in Bed", "I Hate Being Told I'm Talented at Nothing", or I Hate Being Told I'm Talented at Dieting".

    Wow. This is a lot of venom for somone I have no idea who she is. Is she on one of the newer TV shows like the vampire one or the new 90210?

    No, she's a newish movie starlet who's rather outspoken. She was in the first 2 Transformers movies and will not be in the third one, possibly because she's a pain to work with (although that is just a rumor AFAIK).

    Okay, thanks.

    I am so getting old. I finally put Zack Efron's face to his name when I saw the Charlie St. Cloud trailer yesterday.

    And speaking of 90210, she just married Brian Austin Green (a/k/a that rap superstar David Silver) from the original series.

    Yeah, she's much too young and imo much too naturally beautiful to get caught up in that. yet.


    And what's with all the slut talk? Hasn't she been with Green for years?

    I see too much Radiesse or another liquid injectable implant material on the cheekbones altering her facial contours in a most unfortunate way as well as Botox that has changed the shape of her eyebrows. While both of these work wonders on age-related volume loss and wrinkles respectively, they are hardly appropriate for someone aged 24. I also think she's had her lips injected.

    There are instances when young people request Radiesse for unusually narrow cheeks and/or inadequate chin but IMO this is clearly not the case with Megan Fox who is IMO naturally beautiful. Well, less so these days now that she is messing with her face so much.

    Please, Michael Bay is a pain to work with. :lol: He apparently made Kate Beckinsale (who seems like a real sweetheart) cry on the set of Pearl Harbor because she wasn't physically up to his standards. The guy is a serious creepo.

    The thing is that Bay isn't replaceable for the Transformers series. He's the director, and he calls the shots. (The same can be said for James Cameron, who's literally a dictator on his productions.) Fox is.

    Yeah that's the sad part - she's honestly stunning just walking around in sweats and no makeup. I have no idea why she's doing this to herself. Plus, the weirder she looks, the less parts she'll be offered because her image is the sexy girl next door.

    She doesn't strike me as the famewhore type though. I don't see her doing something completely :rolleyes: to get into the tabloids like Tila Tequila. :scream:

    Bay is making my life miserable. MISERABLE. He is currently shooting Transformers 3 and everwhere I look a street is closed for filming or I have to walk through a huge crowd of gawkers just to get to my car or office. I park at Trump Tower and last Wednesday he set off a shit load of fireworks and explosives as I was getting ready to pull out of my space. I thought the building was under attack, people were screaming cars were honking and apparently Optimus Prime was on the attack. I think he took a good ten years off my life.

    Yeah, but she often talks about her wild sexual past.


    Megan Fox was a Teenage Lesbian!

    Hmmmm, poor Megan. When I was 19 I had the libido of a 18 year old boy.


    And I don't find the fact that she liked women particularly shocking or scandalous.

    She's starting down the path to looking like the Cat Lady (Jocelyn Wildenstein) :shuffle:, with more than a little Angelina Jolie thrown in.

    Part of the reason why she looks off in those recent pics is because her wig is framing her face wrong.

    That plastic surgery has really diminished her beauty. Prior to the surgery, I thought she was stunningly gorgeous, but, yeah, she's starting to look like the cat lady. I don't mind her quote so much, but if she hates being told she's talented perhaps she should fire her assistants because I can't imagine anyone else saying that to her.

    IceAlisa, thanks for the information.

    Just to clarify: the only surgery she's had by the common definition at least, are breast implants. Everything else was done by injection.

    I thought Megan said that she has only had sex with 2 men - her high school boyfriend and Brian, who she has been with for years.

    I've read things from gossip columnists like Ted Casablancas who say that she doesn't deserve all the hate she gets - that she's genuinely a very intelligent and likable person. But because she's so frank with her comments, which is not something we're used to hearing from Hollywood, people take that, combined with her looks, in completely the wrong way.

    Personally, while I don't find her the world's greatest actress, she's by no means the worst, and I find her bluntness refreshing in a Patrick Chan kind of way. I'm by no means a fan of hers at all, but I hate when people hate celebrities (mostly female ones) for no real, honest reason. Megan is blunt and gorgeous. Kate Bosworth is dating Alexander Skarsgard and Kristen Stewart is with RPatz. Angelina must have slept with Brad when he was married to Jen, though there's no proof that anything physical actually happened. Gwyneth has difficulty relating to 'normal' people (which is actually kind of hilarious to read some things on GOOP). Drives me bonkers!

    And has less acting talent than your average tree, which IMHO is a real, honest reason.

    Yup. :rofl:

    Seriously though, Brian Austin Green? It makes me feel a little nicely toward her to know that perhaps part of her heart is nerdy. Never seen any of her films so I can't comment one way or the other about her acting.

    This is the man where you could rename every single one of his films "Forty Explosions and a Great Big Fireball" and they'd all still make sense.

    And making Kate Beckinsale cry is the least of the problems with "Pearl Harbor" (which gives "Titanic" a run for its money in the 'accurate sets, REALLY inaccurate story" department and...I can't even think of an example, it must take the top spot for "Dumbest Love Story EVER." Yes, even over "Twilight.") And he could make her cry, but could he make her act? I swear, she USED to be good...can't movies written in Hollywood call for young actresses to do something besides look vacant and do intensely stupid things to move the plot along? (Which is really the fault of neither the directors nor the actresses, but the writers. You can only do so much...then again, plot- and dialogue-wise "Titanic", again, kind of sucked, but at least Leo, Kate, and Billy were trying to make it work. Even if the latter at times looked like he wasn't entirely sure where he was supposed to be going with it and wasn't getting consistent direction about it.)

    And I frankly hesistate to believe her story about the stripper. That she 'experimented', at some would put it (that's the age for LUGs), sure, but the whole thing just sounds..."Hey, I'll say THIS to get headlines and sound like a dangerous bad girl! That'll get me some attention and distract from no one involved with Transformers wanting to work with me again!"

    I'm glad you posted the entire quote, since the title of the thread is taken a little out of context. I'm a huge Megan Fox fan and I've read a lot of her interviews. I do think she gets a lot of undeserved hate because of what she says and how she looks. She doesn't seem to have any delusions that she's anything more than she is right now....which is a pretty face that's been in a few movies. She never said she's some super talent, and I'm sure she's right that everyone in Hollywood blows smoke up every one else's asses.

    She is outspoken but in public keeps a low profile. She's never out at clubs or bars and she never ever dresses up to go out to get a coffee. When she's out with Brian, she acts like a regular person, not a famewhore. She wears yoga pants and t shirts with no makeup....I love that about her.
    And yes, she's admitted to being nerdy...she likes comic books and video games. :)

    I don't think she's a great actress, but what she's done isn't horrendous. I do wish she'd lay off the injections, though. She's stunning without them.

    I will say that I caught the episode of SNL this season that she hosted - she was surprisingly funny in it.

    Well, Radiess is an injectable implant. That's exactly what it looks like to me and the docs who were interviewed on the subject.

    I have to admit that her real life trolling is a bit of talent, considering how many people fell for some of the things she says. :lol:

    ETA: Personally, I thought she could have tone down some of the things she said, like being bipolar. Maybe she does have it but saying that mixed with other comments comes off like she's screaming for attention.

    I do agree with the sentiment that she shouldn't have gotten things done. She's 24, right? But her facial features look so harsh with all the injections. I think she would have been fine if she grew into her face naturally. I am Team Megan with the whole Michael Bay drama.

    She's also said she's OCD about germs and stuff. She does say a lot of wacky things, but I don't think she's screaming for attention. If she wanted attention you'd think she'd be out partying Lohan-style and clamoring for the paparazzi to take her photo but it's nothing but the opposite.
