Megan Fox’s Amica Mag shoot: beautiful, jacked and/or tragic?

fox1

I actually get tired of bashing Megan Fox. Some days I want to find her sympathetic. I want to see her as a victim, because in some sense, she is a victim. She was a pretty girl who could have been the next big thing, and she did real harm to her career through excessive plastic surgery and an unprofessional attitude. These are photos from Megan’s cover shoot for the September issue of Amica Magazine, an Italian publication. I think many of the shots are gorgeous – but it doesn’t really look like Megan, does it? The girl in these photos just seems like a pretty, vacant, nondescript beauty with little personality and too much manufactured “chiseling”. Also: Her 2011 Face only has one open-mouthed expression, which is sad.

But! Megan is in the midst of a new career attempt. She’s rebooting her career, taking smaller parts in smaller movies, trying to find a place in comedy, romantic comedy and drama. The excerpts from this Amica interview reveal a more serious girl too – gone are the mouth-farts about how she’s “schizophrenic”. Of course, this could just be a weird translation:

On what’s happening to her Marilyn Monroe tattoo:
“I’m removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.”

On her navel piercing:
“Oh, this? I did it when I was 16-years-old because I was a fan of Britney Spears. The only time I tried to imitate someone else. But then I thought it was tacky and so I removed it when I turned 20.

On being dubbed as a ‘sex-bomb’:
“What they call me sexy is not something that I can operate or shut down at will, but something that shines through as a journey, from how I talk, how I move. On the screen, I seem very sure of myself, but the real world is the place where I feel more conflict.”

On if she’d be happy if she had a daughter who wanted to be an actress:
“I would not be happy but wouldn’t prevent her from doing so. I just would hope [my child] had a strong character, because you have to be strong to do this job. If she was weak and too emotional, I would not advise it.”

On whether there’s something about her body that she dislikes:
“Of course, I have a lot of flaws. But I do not tell them – ever.”

On how she stays so fit:
“For a year and a half, until about four months ago, I followed a strict vegan diet based on raw fruits and vegetables, no bread, sugar and coffee. But I had lost too much weight. So now I eat a bit of everything. I train three times a week doing circuit training (a series of exercises with tools that improve muscle power, etc) with my trainer Harley Pasternak (the guru of the five factors Diet).”

She has gained some weight – she was photographed a few days ago looking like she’s gained maybe 10 pounds, and it looks great on her. With some added weight, her face doesn’t look so jacked and crazy. As for her new career tract, trying her hand at comedy seems to be paying off for now – she’s worked with Sacha Baron Bohen, Jon Hamm and right now, Leslie Mann, Chris O’Dowd, Jason Segal and Paul Rudd. I just hope she’s actually done some growing up intellectually. *fingers crossed*

    Nowhere near as pretty as she looked before all the surgeries, but she’s fine in some of the pictures here.

  2. brin says:

    I think she’s really pretty and I don’t have any reason to bash her so, good luck, Megan!

  3. gee says:

    She looks pretty and doesn’t sound so bad. Much improved.

  4. 6 says:

    In March of this year Megan was quoted as saying “I just stopped eating,” she admitted to the site. “I don’t eat very healthy anyway — I have a serious sugar tooth, so now I eat red-velvet cake before I go to bed every night, and if you eat meals later, you’ll put on weight faster, so I had dinner at 10 p.m.”

    And now, “For a year and a half, until about four months ago, I followed a strict vegan diet based on raw fruits and vegetables, no bread, sugar and coffee. But I had lost too much weight. So now I eat a bit of everything. I train three times a week doing circuit training (a series of exercises with tools that improve muscle power, etc) with my trainer Harley Pasternak (the guru of the five factors Diet).”

    She is jacked in the mind for sure.

  5. keith133 says:

    she looks better now than when she did transformers no fake tan no awful marilyn tatoo not too much make up

  6. jemshoes says:

    In the last photo, I honestly wouldn’t have recognised her had your post not identified her as Megan Fox! :O

  7. junk573r says:

    Mouuuuth breeaaatheeerrr.

  8. i.want.shoes says:

    She looks much better! She really should learn some new expressions for posing though. As an actress, she should be able to channel more than a dumb-girl-with-open-mouth look.

  9. Sue says:

    She looks better but I still have NO sympathy for her, girl can’t act her way out of a paper bag.

    Why does her story about her diet keep changing her interview last month was how great her raw diet was and how she stays health from that now a different story is their going to be another one for her next interview 9 out of 10 yes.

  10. gaby says:

    Marilyn Monroe was not a character. She was a real human being who lived and had real life problems. Now her memory is cheapened by starlets like her and Lohan who think they can conjure her image.

  11. dleann says:

    in one of the pictures, she looks like KimK – and that’s not a compliment

  12. bros says:

    shes making the exact same face in every picture

  13. Meg says:

    ‘She was a pretty girl who could have been the next big thing, and she did real harm to her career through excessive plastic surgery and an unprofessional attitude.’
    i don’t think she wanted to be the next big thing. i think she knows she’s not very talented, and your looks fade, so she decided to take a step back to the B list, and just work consistently being happy with supporting roles. i admire that much more than the women who marry rich, the kardashians who have no talent but are fame whores.
    I also like that she’s removing the marilyn monroe tattoo. i always wondered why girls looked up to her in a positive way as opposed to simply seeing themselves in her in regard to her being seen as simply a sex symbol and not taken seriously because of it. why admire a women who struggled so much personally, she didn’t have a life i’d aspire to. i understand the romantic pictures of her reminding viewers of a romantic time and feelings though

  14. weeble says:

    Her face is awful from all the surgeries, but the verdict is still out on the stupidity. Although I’m sure she can probably think more effectively since she is eating and working out—her brain needs the oxygen and nutrients desperately.

  15. girlwithapearl says:

    “I’m removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.”

    Oh, FUCK OFF. I swear if I hear one more thing about celebrities taking about “negative energy” I’m gonna cut a bitch right in the negative area

  16. Cherry Rose says:

    Her right eye looks weird, kind of wonky. Does anyone else notice this?

    The interview isn’t too bad. Seems like Megan’s growing up a bit.

    Though the whole reason for removing the Marilyn Monroe tattoo is stupid. Just because you have a tattoo of someone doesn’t mean the negativity in their life will be passed onto you.

    The only thing I respect about Megan is she’s pretty lowkey. Unless she has a movie to promote, you hardly ever see or hear about her.

  17. Liz says:

    She looks pretty. Doesn’t change the fact that her face is fake.

  18. Katy says:

    “Naturalmente sexy”…Oh, those Italians are great. I suppose Botox does contain some natural substances, so technically there’s some truth to that statement; *shaking my head*, oy vey!

  19. Mata says:

    It sounds like somebody has a new management and PR team that they’re actually listening to this time.

  20. Isa says:

    She looks really pretty. My only complaint is that she should’ve closed her mouth.

    Jessica Simspon is the worst about this when she models. She can’t close her mouth.

    Is everyone in Hollywood mouth breathers?

  21. Why would someone so young and pretty have work done to their face?

  22. lucy2 says:

    Seems like she was humbled a bit by having several flops, and is trying a new approach. And has a new publicist or something.
    I too think she looks better with that little bit of weight back on, she got too skinny, and it’s good she’s removing that awful and distracting tattoo. She’s still very pretty, but it’s a shame she did so much surgery though.

  23. Nanz says:

    Botox and/or plastic surgery make women look OLDER, not younger. Too bad. She was sooo pretty. Like, striking. Now she just looks plastic and shiny. Like a toy.

  24. Happy21 says:

    I always try to dislike her but I just can’t. She is pretty. Work or no work she is pretty. If she continues it she won’t be so pretty and she seems pretty well spoken – whether its BS or not I don’t know nor do I really care. She keeps herself out of the tabloids, is happily married and knows that she isn’t a great actress. By trying her hand at different things I think she will find success. I would imagine these actors and actresses when their acting is being bashed constantly, do get acting lessons or at least attempt them. With any luck the Judd Apatow movie she is filming will be funny and she’ll pull it off. I’m looking forward to judging for myself.

    Good luck to Megan!

  25. jover says:

    Well said kelly and girlwithapearl this bimbo talks in and uses such cliches and commonplaces because she’s uneducated, uninformed, illiterate; maybe she’s maturing a little but she’s still an ungrateful brat; is there a lack of naturally beautiful Italian models/actresses that they put this plastic bozo on the cover.She’s a terrible model because she has no personality; give me the supers of the 80s/90s over today’s overexposed d-listers.

  26. really says:

    Very naturally PRETTY……….. which says alot for young-Hollywood at this time of fake hair, wigs and bad talent young actresses.

  27. Turtle Dove says:

    I co-sign with Megan showing a more mature approach to her career; hopefully, this has a positive effect and we see her in more projects.

    The Marilyn tattoo had to go. I think that it was too prominent, and I think as she aged Megan didn’t want to be a billboard for someone else’s life.

  28. Amanda G says:

    Megan…CLOSE YOUR MOUTH.

  29. dr.bombay says:

    She’s wearing Princess Kate’s eyeliner

  30. Vera says:

    Beautiful and a bit jacked. Not tragic, though. And the only reason I say jacked is her facial expression doesn’t change.

    I do actually like her a bit – not adoringly, but I don’t have any contempt towards her. I also don’t really care that she had plastic surgery. She didn’t completely change her appearance – I know tons will argue she looks completely different, but I wouldn’t write off all the changes to plastic surgery. I’d say her face has matured a bit and isn’t as childish, so to speak, so that is also contributing. There has been some obvious times she’s gotten fillers, and I do feel the fillers are unnecessary, but they aren’t huge alterations.

    I do like the black and white ones the most – I think that black and white works very well for her, more so than other stars.

  31. LBeees says:

    call me crazy, but doesn’t she look like Shannon Doherty in those black and whites?

    Shannon had tons of plastic surgery, too. Now both look kind of wacko-Jacko.

  32. anon33 says:

    LBeees, no you’re not crazy, I thought the exact same thing!! Def channeling Doherty a bit here.
    edit to add: and Lara Flynn Boyle, now that I look at it again. Which is not a good thing…

  33. Jacqu says:

    ‘The only time I tried to imitate someone else.’

    I love how she pointed that out. Like she didn’t get the lip fillers, nose job and boob job to look more like the Jolie.

  34. Babalon says:

    She looks great but there’s no variety to her facial expressions whatsoever.

  35. Cait says:

    Glad she got rid of the tattoo because it was hideous. Portrait tattoos usually are. I also get what Megan was trying to say, but she’ll get in hot water for the Marilyn comment. Girl has foot-in-mouth syndrome.

  36. Shy says:

    She is not rebooting her career. She takes what they offer her. And obviously no one is offering her Lead roles in big or even small movies. Because she can’t sell them. They give her only small supporting roles in small movies.

    And remember how she was “the next Angelina Jolie”? How she was superstar… And it all went in the dust the moment Bay fired her.

  37. Skinnybetch says:

    I liked the mouthy and outspoken Megan Fox. Why did so many people hate on her for being herself? Sounds like she has a new pr team telling her what to say. Zzzzzz

  38. Eden says:

    I think she’s attractive but not even close to being a “good” actress. I believe the media comparing her to Angelina Jolie (which I’m sure Megan promoted & thought it would help her career) was toxic for her acting career. Its like when Coke came out with New Coke & it ticked off the public b/c it tasted fake an awful! That’s Megan, a fake an awful New Angelina. There’s only ONE Angie, love her or hate her but there is only ONE!!!

  39. albeli says:

    I’m proud to be bipolar.

    Bitch needs to STFU.

  40. Camille says:

    Talk about contradicting herself from her old interviews :roll: . This chick is nuts and her face and body is average, jacked and forgettable, much like her career :lol: .

  41. Sinder says:

    Plastic surgery or no, this woman is lovely.

  42. Kelly says:

    On what’s happening to her Marilyn Monroe tattoo:
    “I’m removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.”

    I’m bi-polar, and for her to say my energy is negative gets a big STFU from me. This narcissistic twat can go eff herself. She has NO idea what she’s talking about. EVER.

  43. Memphis says:

    I think she looks emotionally distant and sad, especially in the last picture.. She tends to always say the wrong thing and I’m sure she will do it again sooner rather than later, but I don’t find her as annoying as a lot of people seem to.

  44. Albeli*Kelly** After reading your comments,I reread the article,realizing I totally missed the Marilyn comment.I must say,I never held Megan in high regard,and now I respect her alot less.I can see why you both took offense to her remarks.

  45. On her navel piercing:
    “Oh, this? I did it when I was 16-years-old because I was a fan of Britney Spears. The only time I tried to imitate someone else. But then I thought it was tacky and so I removed it when I turned 20.

    ***
    Hahaha i still lmfao! Really? The only one who tried to imitate? We all know her obssesion with Angelina Jolie ,stupid ass Megan! And yeah i am sure she has a brand new shiny publicist!

  46. Original Bee says:

    @Mata that’s exactly what I thought. I read an article not to long ago about how Megan’s team was concerned that women hate her, and they knew she needed to “soften” her image. Now that she’s not appearing on the cover of every men’s magazine Megan appears to finally be listening to the advice of her management and PR.

  47. Shy says:

    I love it how she often complains that people don’t take her serious and that people only see her as some sex object and how Michael Bay only saw her as sexy girl in Transformers. And how she dated only one man in many years but people think that she is slut… And then she poses in her bra and panties in every magazine…

    There are no words for this. Just say: “No” when they tell you to put off you shirt. Or don’t complain later that people only see you as chick in bra.

  48. z says:

    these are beautiful pictures of Megan… thumbs up… compared to the photo shoots Lindsay Lohan does hers are classless… she tries too hard…In these pictures Megan looks great
