Megan Fox covers Jalouse: “I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl”

Megan Fox may or may not be pregnant – we already covered that story today. But what is not up in the air is whether Megan Fox is vapid. She is. Always and forever. Megan covers the new issue of Jalouse Magazine – a French publication. As such, the quotes from her interview were probably said in English, translated to French, and then re-translated into English. So… some of the awfulness might be because something is lost in translation. Or it could be a completely accurate translation of Megan’s vapidity. You decide. French-speakers, you can read the original piece here and tell me if the translation is accurate.

Megan on her role in ‘Friends with Kids’: “I’m Mary Jane, the character played by Adam Scott thinks he is her soul mate. But he has a baby, I’m very independent, and he disapproves of her lifestyle.”

On shooting magazine covers and ads: “I hate taking pictures, I never watch them, otherwise I would have wanted to change everything. I prefer not to see any and trust the photographer, who knows his job.”

On the importance of her looks: “I live well with my image, I cannot complain, I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl.”

[Via Global Grind]

“I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl.” UGH. Megan consistently wants to put herself out there like she’s super-confident, bordering on obsessively narcissistic, but in reality, I think she’s just a not-so-bright girl-woman who has major self-confidence issues. I think that’s why she keeps tweaking and filling and Botoxing – because she doesn’t really think she was “good enough” to start with. But I still can’t even imagine having a moment of “I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl.” Well, at least she has her priorities straight, I guess.

UPDATE: I’m surprised at how many people are defending Megan’s comments. I guess I was taken aback by how she seems to only value beauty and nothing else. She doesn’t seem to be saying, “I wouldn’t trade places with anyone because I like who I am.” She’s saying, “I’m pretty and I would never want to be ugly because being pretty is all I’ve got.”

    That sounds terribly translated to me. I have no issue if she said that.

    Would YOU trade your pretty face for an ugly one? Certainly not!

    • WillyNilly says:

      Ditto. I do look forward to the french translation though. And at least she’s not Bieling and saying that being attractive has kept her from getting jobs. *eyeroll*

    • anemoneblue says:

      Totally agree with you. Who would want to trade with an unattractive girl if you have looks going for you? I would’t. Why would Meghan? She has no acting talent, so her only ticket in Hollywood are her looks

    • Talie says:

      Yeah, the translation is very clunky and honestly a little irresponsible.

    • ... says:

      I disagree.

      1. She changed her face completly, so she obviously thinks her face was not that beautiful before

      2. Beauty is perceived differently. What I find an ugly girl must not be an ugly girl for you or whoever. Same goes for a beautiful girl. What’s the message for young girls? Only beautiful girls count? Besides beauty is subjective.

      You should not want to trade your place with another person because you like yourself, not because you are more beautiful or richer…

      • Alarmjaguar says:

        ^^^THIS^^^ everything I was going to say, but much more articulate!

      • Carolyn says:

        She may be Ok enough to look at (and Photoshop) to get magazine covers. She’s not attractive on the inside though. People aren’t missing her on the big screen and aren’t clamouring to cast her in big movies anymore. If she wasn’t getting really random magazine covers and the odd Armani ad (that campaign won’t run for long) what would she do for money? Karma.

      • Franny says:

        Wow Carolyn, you seem to take her pretty personally. She isn’t a good person on the inside? What kind of facts do you have that to base on? As I remember, she makes it a point to volunteer without it being a major PR thing, and I haven’t heard anything of bad gossip about her. What karma does she have coming her way? What did she do to deserve such hate?

      • Maria says:

        I agree! She could have left out the comment about “not wanting to be an ugly girl”. It implies that she thinks that the way she looks is the right way and the only way to be pretty and attractive. She might be considered beautiful by the people who look up to the Hollywood beauty ideal. But many people don’t find the plastic and science fiction version of beauty ideal attractive. For many people the Hollywood look means a beauty ideal which includes injecting your lips and face with botox and fillers and a body which has been cut open to add something unnatural elements into it. So it’s science fiction version of female beauty basically. Also, people are attracted to different kinds of features and body types. The features you might find ugly, can be for someone else exactly those features that make the person look interesting and attractive to them.

        Beauty magazines and Hollywood might have a very specific beauty ideal for women and it might have more and more influence to the general beauty ideal but it doesn’t and never will reflect everybody’s beauty ideals. Defining who is an ugly person and who is an attractive person is a subjective experience.

    • Abby says:

      While what she says might be true, saying it out loud and IN PRINT, is what makes her seem like an asshole.

    • EBitch says:

      Even if she was an “unattractive” girl, she’d fix it with EVEN MORE plastic surgery.

      And what is with the medical gloves???

  2. fabgrrl says:

    “I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl.”

    Well, be honest, would any of us? Would you rather be LeAnn Rimes – rich and married, but not pretty – or Brandi Glanville – struggling, single, but nice looking? {Sorry to bring those two up, but they immediately came to mind for: pretty girl vs. unattractive girl.}

  3. Maya says:

    She’s really not a very good model, is she? I’m just realizing that looking at these pictures…maybe it’s the lack of acting ability coming through even here.

    • Seymour Butts says:

      I think it’s more like there is so much Botox going on that she can’t move her face properly, actually very little. What a shame, she was so naturally cute and now looks awful. Those cheek implants are gross, and so totally unnecessary. No intellect, no acting ability :(

  4. Erandyn says:

    She’s shallow, this site is dedicated to shallow, what’s the problem?

  5. Lisa says:

    Who would? It’d be like expecting a skinny girl to trade places with a fat one. She’s simply being honest, and it’s far more refreshing than false humility. Looks are the most important thing.

  6. rose80 says:

    And who would? I think all women would want to be in apart of the attractive crowd. No one wakes up and says oh God please let me be ugly.

  7. Wendi says:

    No beautiful woman would trade places with an ugly one.

    “Je suis en contrôle car je n’autorise pas les gens à abuser de moi émotionnellement.” “Je vis bien avec mon image, je ne peux pas me plaindre; je n’échangerais pas ma place avec une fille moche. Mais c’est seulement ce que je donne à voir.”

    I’m in control because I don’t allow people to emotionally abuse me. I’m at ease with my image, I can’t complain, I wouldn’t trade places with an ugly girl. But, it’s only what I allow to be seen”

    • emmie says:

      This sounds more accurate, though I don’t speak French.

      She’s a beautiful woman and I’d rather hear this from her than false modesty.

      • Wendi says:

        I know!

        No one ever goes to the plastic surgeon and asks to look like one of the “before” pictures.

        I think they stuck a bunch of quotes together because that was a synopsis teaser to lure you to the article. I would guess that the first sentence might be about Michael Bay, who is to all accounts, a disgusting sexist pig. The last sentence makes no sense because it’s out of context.

    • Coucou says:

      I call bulls–t: She’s “at ease with her image,” and yet hates having her picture taken? Can’t even look at the pics? As usual, she’s contradicting herself because, like all the other great beauties, she has massive revolving and opposing issues with narcissism and self esteem.

      And trust me, with her skewed idea of beauty, i’m sure her idea of an “ugly girl” is as equally skewed.

      How rude to say something like that, just because she happens to be blessed genetically through absolutely no virtue of her own, I, too am surprised by the amount of posts supporting this vain and ridiculous comment, i mean, it’s one thing to think it, quite a whole other thing to say it!

      • almond says:

        Come on, she’s only saying what many women and men think.
        Would you change your face with someone’s you deem unatractive?
        It’s simply acknowliging her advantages; she has so few after all. She’s not even saying that she’d rather be pretty than smart or kind. She’s stating a truth that many agree with.

        Pose the question “Would you rather be less pretty but much smarter?” and then see who’s shallow or not. For saying something so obvious and simple she seems to get a lot of criticism.

      • Wendi says:

        I think she’s saying “image” in the sense of “public image” (ie: in her case, stupid but beautiful), not in the “my face on a magazine” sense.

  8. KSP says:

    The gloves in the header photo look like latex exam gloves.

  9. Ginger says:

    Ugh!! Why, why for the love of Pete does she always stick her tongue out??!! and I love how she refers to the photographer as doing “his” job…it may be male dominated but there are those of us who are FEMALE photographers! TYVM

  10. Chatcat says:

    There are somethings better left unsaid…unless you are as dumb as a stone or a narcissist.

  11. Alaina says:

    Obviously not a literal translation but even if the jist of what she says is the above, so what? All she’s basically saying is that she’s happy with her looks.

    That said, I think she’s a terrible actress.

  12. Empoisonneuse says:

    She says “I’m always in control I don’t want to let people abuse me emotionnaly. I live well with my image, I can’t compIain, I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl. But it’s only what I let you see of me”. It’s just a quote, hard to know exactly what her point is/was…

  13. deb says:

    what is her real face?
    the first face (the picture with her in surgical gloves), does not really look like her at all. i would never see that picture and go: oh that’s megan fox. a million names would probably pass me by before i reckon that’s her.
    she looks very Generic European Model in that first picture

    Her second picture looks like LiLo! especially the lips.

    Her fourth picture looks like Angelina Jolie.

    if her aim is to be chameleonic (is this even a word), i guess she nailed it.

  14. Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

    She’s gorgeous.

  15. Minty says:

    There she goes again, putting her foot in her mouth. On second thought, maybe something really was lost in translation. Or she needs a better publicist/handler.

    She could have said something more diplomatic: “I’m lucky I live in a culture where my appearance is considered attractive. It has its benefits, so I’m thankful for that.”

  16. MrsBarneyStinson says:

    Such honesty is really refreshing! Ironic thing is, with all the botox and fillers, she’s already unattractive. She used to be much prettier in her early days.

    What’s with those hideous photos, btw?

  17. daya says:

    i see no problem with her comments…the only people that have a problem with it are UGLY PEOPLE or UNATTRACTIVE PEOPLE….

  18. Ming says:

    Can’t hate/dislike Megan Fox. Absolutely CAN’T. Her rottentomatoes favorite-films-list included Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. She’s a geek, I CANNOT hate her, whatever atrocity her palaver box may rant out, I goddamn can’t.

  19. lucy2 says:

    Yeah, that does sound repeatedly translated.
    I agree, no one would chose to be LESS attractive, but especially if your career is based on your looks, you certainly wouldn’t.

  20. jc126 says:

    No one would want to trade places with someone unattractive, but it’s bizarre and unnecessary to say so.
    The irony is, she’s already ruining her face with surgery, and is well down the road to unattractiveness. She’s going to look like a freak as she ages, frankly.

  21. Sakyiwaa says:

    i’m meh on this… like, a beautiful chick, would never want to be ugly. Ever.

  22. NeNe says:

    If she felt really confident with her looks, they why the heck does she keep fixing up her face. Before we know it, she is going to look just like Joan Rivers. I just think she needs to shut her trap, for good!

  23. Jezi says:

    We don’t know what question was asked in order to get that response. Look we all know her job success has been about her beauty and not her acting skills. I think most people care about their looks.

  24. Guest says:

    “I live well with my image, I cannot complain, I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl.” With remarks like that she is really going to increase her fan base.

  25. pierre says:

    the question in the article is

    “how do you feel about being considered a sex symbol”

    the answer is

    “I’m in control because I don’t allow people to emotionally abuse me. I’m at ease with my image, I can’t complain, I wouldn’t trade places with an unattractive girl. But, it’s only what I allow to be seen of me”

    makes sense to me

    • Gine says:

      Yeah, I don’t see what’s wrong with that. She’s being honest and seems pretty self-aware about the fact that she gets hired for her looks. At least she’s not one of those “Oh it’s SO HARD to be beautiful! Plain women have it so much easier!” actresses.

  26. sarah says:

    why is she trying to lick the mascara that’s running down her face?

  27. Maria says:

    Elizabeth Taylor…Grace Kelly….beautiful beauties who had to age in the spotlight. Looks don’t last….so you better have something else going on so the pain of losing your jaw dropping looks isn’t so wrenching. The more you’re attached to something, the harder it is to lose. Beauty fades, but it’s what you do for others that lasts forever… how you make people feel. she’ll learn this as she grown up…she is still a baby…….

  28. Eleonor says:

    She is not Barbra Streisand or Meryl Streep, she is famous only thanks to her appeal, she owns her beauty (and her plastic surgeon) everything, to me she is being honest.

  29. Asiyah says:

    I like her, but I do not like this comment. One comment like that doesn’t make you a bad person or entirely superficial, but as a person who finds herself unattractive, I don’t really appreciate it. I won’t judge her for it, though, because we all make comments that are inappropriate at times or just come out wrong.

    • bk says:

      Sorry, but we all have our strengths and our flaws. You really shouldn’t walk around expecting people to want to switch places with you if you’re unattractive. It’s just one of the more obvious flaws we all feel to a certain degree. I don’t think most people would want to switch places with a beautiful but crazy person either, someone like Sharon Stone. It’s the people who hide their flaws best that we fantasize being!

      • Asiyah says:

        Exactly. That’s why I don’t appreciate her comment. I personally don’t find her to be this conceited bitch who thinks she’s better than everyone (I mean come on she was already pretty and she keeps messing up her face) but that doesn’t mean I think the comment isn’t hurtful.

  30. Kristen says:

    She’s basically saying that she’s comfortable with her appearance and knows that she has the life she has because of it. I wouldn’t trade that either, quite honestly.

  31. k says:

    She’s grateful for what luck her looks have brought her thus far.

    I prefer her brutal, unfiltered comments any day to the rest of the fakes out there.

  32. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I didn’t bother looking at the whole article, so I don’t know what was asked of her to get that answer.

    *
    I’m always torn between thinking people should speak freely and rolling my eyes wondering if people have the ability to think things that they don’t say.

    No one wants to be less attractive, that’s pretty obvious and something I wish could be the *silent* elephant in the world, but no matter. I don’t really understand this trend towards applauding the ‘bravery’ of people who interpret the word ‘honesty’ as ‘carte blanche to say whatever unfiltered garbage leaps into my mind, no matter how dumb, obvious or potentially offensive it is.’ The stakes are low in this case, but I guess it’s like the Twitter wars which reveal the twit in so many famous people. I don’t know, what’s the line between too fake and too real?

  33. KattyCat says:

    Is it just me, or does her nose look wider here… like it’s been worked on again, and is perhaps still a bit swollen (esp the bridge area)?

  34. Meena says:

    She is very old looking I think…not in a wrinkley way, but in a botoxed up way.

  35. ladybert62 says:

    That is all she has – a pretty face (manufactured thanks to plastic surgery).

    Those pictures are silly – the running mascara? Is that suppose to be “Art”?

  36. BlackMamba says:

    Yes the translation is accurate and I agree with her, I wouldn’t exchange place with an ugly or fat girl either. Sorry but that is the truth.

  37. *Roxy* says:

    “I wouldn’t exchange place with an ugly or fat girl either.”

    Hey, she’s a f***ing genius after all!

  38. Stacia says:

    She has no tact and says very stupid things..One could go on and on about who she would not trade places with in this world. Would she trade her place with a(n):

    1. blue/white collar worker (someone that actually ‘works’ for a living

    2. Rhodes scholar (someone that actaully uses their brain)

    3. real actress ( someone that CAN act)

    So all she has going for herself is her looks. I’ll agree that she is beautiful, but too into herself.

    WORD TO THE WISE: beauty slowly fades and idoicy is forever

  39. Sarah says:

    Well you don’t need to be confident to be able to look in a mirror. She is pretty, it is a fact, now I think she was being honest saying that. It is better than a hot girl being all “Ohh I’m not that pretty hihihihihihhi”.

  40. EscapedConvent says:

    Wow. Either the surgeon, or the photographer, has morphed Megan into young Isabelle Adjani. I wouldn’t complain about that either. It’s a French publication–I wonder how many Parisiennes saw this cover & thought it was Isabelle.

  41. anniecc says:

    The French to English translation is actually ok, but who knows what she originally said in English. I’m not sure what attractive female celebrities are supposed to say, given they’re constantly asked about their appearance (unlike male celebrities of similar vintage). If she’d claimed she wasn’t attractive I expect people would also be criticising her for that.

  42. Asli says:

    Funny, since she is 90 procent plastic. Being dumb and ”gorgeous” – depends on the person looking – rather than smart and ”ugly” – since her view of ugly is most likely skewed – is the easiest choice (for me). No amount of beauty can make her smarter. I’d die if I was as vapid as Megan. Eww. Beauty only last so long. We all die at the end.

  43. Havana says:

    What point is she trying to make in that statement?I doubt anyone would trade places with someone less attractive, less smart.It seems she is too dumb to even get her point across and articulate something comprehensible. She might as well have said “I wouldn’t trade places with a corpse.”

  44. Rux says:

    Ehhh, her response does not bother me and I do not think it’s a big deal. I would not trade places with an unattractive girl either not that I am some prize; just workin’ with what I got.

  45. Bobby the K says:

    I wouldn’t call her looks jaw dropping or anything. And she’s soon to cross the cosmetic procedural Rubicon.

  46. TheOriginalKitten says:

    No one would willingly trade *just* a pretty face for *just* an unattractive face. That being said, would I rather be beautiful and talentless like Megan Fox or average-looking (I know it’s subjective) and FULL of talent like Meryl Streep? Meryl Streep all the effin way. Beauty fades but you take talent to the grave.

  47. Daphne says:

    I hope for her sake that the translation was weird. Otherwise, it’s off-putting to say something so egotistical. On a different note, I love those photos!

  48. only1shmoo says:

    OK, i live in France and have a pretty solid grasp of French. Basically, she said that she wouldn’t trade places with a girl who is “moche”, meaning ugly, but it sounds as if she knows that her looks are all she really has to offer at this point.

    Do I think she’s tipping the balance between being painfully insecure and being a full-blown narcissist? Definitely! Her looks are all she’s focused on and the media has given her the impetus to do that, but she’s now had so much plastic surgery that her face has, and may carry on to be, a big joke.

  49. Pia says:

    I agree with what she is saying, but I would be petrified of working in an industry where you must rely on your looks. I’m secure with knowing I have a lot going for myself, besides my appearance. Being pleased with what I see in the mirror and receiving compliments from others is just a plus.

  50. ZenB!tch says:

    On the importance of her looks: “I live well with my image, I cannot complain, I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl.”
    —————————————–
    She should know she was an unattractive girl and if she doesn’t lay off the surgery she may become one again.

  51. Mouse says:

    I don’t think anyone in my U.S. culture would CHOOSE to trade places with someone less attractive. But only a vapid airhead would say it out loud and during an interview. That’s not honesty, it’s stupidity.

    • dahlia1947 says:

      That’s right. Only a vapid airhead would say that out loud. Remember Megan, your “I’m hot! I’m IT!” attitude was what got you in trouble in the first place.

      Why don’t you come back down a few notches, cause now with more plastic in your face, you are still NOT ALL THAT.

  52. Misha says:

    Whatever on Megan Fox, what is really offensive is all the a**holes who are commenters on this site. Good to know how many of you are perfect 10s too.

    • Wendi says:

      How do you get that the commenters are a**holes who all think they’re a 10?

      It’s pretty obvious that someone who has a genetic advantage, be it smart, attractive, athletic etc, isn’t likely to want to trade places with someone who doesn’t have those gifts. Even if you don’t have them, it’s easy to understand that what is a desirable trait is better to have than what is not.

    • Mary jones says:

      I agree. I’m sure Megan would not trade places with any of you. She would probably consider you unattractive. So stop patting your “perfect 10″ ass on the back.

  53. Olivia says:

    Well, it’s not as if she threw open the door, shouted at the interviewer, “I wouldn’t trade places with an unattractive girl!” and left.

    When you’re being asked, “Oh how does it feel to be a sex symbol, to be attractive?” what else are you supposed to say besides: I can’t complain, it’s better than the alternative.

  54. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Oh, Evangeline Lilly, where art thou?

  55. Lilli says:

    God what is with all the hate for this girl? Calling her plastic coz she might have had some surgery, as if that’s all that uncommon in Hollywood (99% of celebrities have had some work done) just shows how bitter and spiteful some women are here. It’s true though that the majority of women and men would prefer a good looking girl than an unattractive one. Scientists have even studied the effects of the advantages of having beauty, so to criticize Megan for just stating the truth is completely uncalled for. Face it, Megan is beautiful, before and after she got work done. She was blessed to have a beautiful face with high cheek bones, and yes, she’d always had them even way back then. She was asked a question about her status as a sex symbol and she spoke up with honesty. I prefer her answer than one of those fake ones where the pretty girl claims to have it tough just for being beautiful.

  56. KitKat says:

    ” No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they ‘re pretty even if they aren’t.” Marilyn Monroe

  57. Stephanie says:

    I hate to break it to Megan but she is slowly transforming her face from a pretty one to an unattractive one, IMO!!!! She should have stopped with the plastic surgery circa Transformers 1.0. Now she looks like chicken cutlets and silly putty. No offense to silly putty.

  58. Ramie says:

    and her vain ass is prego…good luck with that.

  59. theotherbird says:

    Didn’t anyone else notice the ears? Weird stuff, there. Once you see them, you can’t unsee them.

  60. Lilli says:

    @ Stephanie, i would still rather look like her any day of the week. A lot of women have been criticizing Megan since Transformers 1 and 2, calling her face ugly, plastic, too fake looking. I doubt it’s new to her anymore, I don’t think she even changed that much at all besides the obvious nose job(s) and maybe the fillers on her mouth but that’s called Hollywood beauty for you. I can’t see anything to criticize about in these pics of her, she looks a lot better here than in the Friends with Kids Premier. She lost a lot of weight, and she’s getting older, so i’m not surprised her cheekbones are more prominent now. Even stars like Angelina Jolie and Marilyn Monroe have had the same thing happen to them. Megan is no different.

  61. LittleDeadGirl says:

    There is a HUGE difference between saying you are happy with your looks and saying you’d not trade places with an “ugly” girl. I’m just amazed at all the comments focusing so much on looks. It’s nice to see its all us women have going for us. You’d never see a man saying this kind of shit. Jesus Christ.

  62. loop says:

    honest, honest, straight answers. if i was hott, i would remind u of it.

  63. lala says:

    ITA with you Kaiser! She sounds like a narcissistic asshole…like the insecure mean girl in high school who tears the other girls down to make herself feel better.

    Cmon guys, if she wasn’t a celebrity and said this, you’d give her the ‘bitch please’ side eye and make a point to avoid her not ‘applaud her honesty or agree’

  64. Kosmos says:

    Naturally, if you were a bit attractive, you would not want to trade and be instead someone who is unattractive, but you also would NEVER say something so ridiculously inappropriate in a magazine article! She always seems to say the wrong thing, which gets her into trouble. She apparently doesn’t have much insight. Also, before she had so much work done, she was not AS attractive. I agree with what someone said earlier, that possibly her looks ARE the only thing she’s really got, because she doesn’t have much talent in the long run. She can only use the beauty thing so long before it gets really old for most of us. Boring.

  65. Michelle says:

    That is such an amazing cover photo, I love it!

  66. Poopsicle says:

    Being honest and being honest about being superficial are 2 different things.

    Some things are better left unsaid.

    Seriously though this bitch needs to stop talking… every time she opens her mouth it’s complete diarrhea. I never liked Megan Fox. I never will.

  67. lg says:

    The translation is fine, but the quotes lack context, no? With regards to not being ugly, she is talking about being in control in the sense that she doesn’t let others abuse her emotionally (prbly a reference to Michael Bay/Transformers). I think the image she is talking about when she says it has served her well is the image of a sex goddess…which she has learned to control. When she says she wouldn’t trade places with an ugly girl, it is in this context–not, I am so beautiful but, I have benefitted greatly from this image I can now use to my advantage. Not to overanalyze it, but I don’t think it is that cold.

    • lg says:

      Here is the complete translation, btw: “I’m in control in that I don’t allow others to abuse me emotionally.” “My image serves me well; I can’t complain; I wouldn’t change places with an ugly girl. But it is all that I give to be observed.” C’est ca, non? I don’t translate exactly word for word because that often obscures the meaning (I translate Chinese too–my god, word-for-word does not work at all…)

      For me, she means more “I use this image as a form of self-preservation/protection–if I were ugly, I would not be able to do that.”

      Ok, I am done with this. :)

    her superficialness showed because she is just too dumb to conceal it. way to kill the sympathy women had for her although i guess this site consists of some major fans because only fans would forgive somebody no matter what they do. it is nothing out of the extraordinary, i’d bet all standard hollywood bimbos would talk like that. however, she is not as attractive as she thinks: sure, under certain light, photoshop etc. she looks as good as any other model. however her legs are too short, especially considering her long arms, she must always wear stilettos because when she doesn’t, she looks like a primate with the long arms and short legs. she is too short to be a runway model anyway, i don’t remember her exact height but around 5’4” i believe. her eye colour is thanks to contact lenses (yes i was shocked too when i found out, then again she was emulating la jolie, who also wears contact lenses). her face has too much fillers-botox and is too much tweaked. even her nose is too narrowed now it looked fine before. in other words, she looks and talks like your typical airhead hollywood starlet who dreams of being the next big thing but can’t act, constantly self-sabotages by opening her big mouth, and is addicted to plastic surgery.

    angelina jolie and megan fox have something in common : they are not pretty anymore , but think they are….

    Pretty girl wouldn’t want to be ugly? Yeah so… It’s not news, its common sense.

    Kaiser – ITA with you. And look ^, just look at all that insipidness and vapidity! Looks ARE all that matter, dontcha know?

  72. Angel says:

    Agreeing with Kaiser, here. I try to be fair and impartial when reading these stories, because celebs do have the things they say dissected and taken out of context to such an extreme extent, usually … but she dug this hole all on her own, and continues to dig it every time she opens her mouth. I gave her the benefit of the doubt at one time, but there are just so many times you can say ‘maybe she didn’t mean it that way…’ before you get tired of excusing someone’s thoughtlessness. I interpreted what she said to be extremely shallow and vapid. As per usual.

    @Sup, well said.

    I don’t find it the quote, even if it is translated correctly, to be all that awful. Frankly speaking, that’s the sort of thing everyone thinks and very few say out loud. In today’s society, looks matter more than ever, not only they open a lot of doors, but, simply put, the life of a beautiful person is easier than the one of someone less fortunate looking. It may not be fair, but it’s the harsh truth. Why, with most people trying and improving their looks, would a Hollywood starlet desire to be ugly?

    This being said, her stating this clearly shows she knows her career is based upon her face and body rather than her talent- which means that at least she’s aware of it and isn’t claiming to be Oscar worthy. Do I think she was probably better off, PR wise, keeping this thought to herself? Yes. Do I have an issue with the thought itself? No.

    @Patrick — you and your lady friends nailed it, thank you. I’ve always said, if I could be sexy and hook myself up with a rich handsome guy? I’d have it made!

  75. Meanchick says:

    If she was comfortable with herslef, then why the cosmetic surgeries,fillers, peels and whatevers? That was a comment that didn’t need to be made. She showed us what she was all anout, looks. Sadly, they only count for so much and for so long in H-wood. Bye Bye Meg.

  76. Leek says:

    It kind of seems like she already has traded places since her face is not the same one it was five years ago, let alone ten or 15.

    Two words: Jacqui Saburido.

    By which I mean– some people have endured this thing which she fears. And I personally would much rather sit down to lunch with someone like Jacqui than someone like Ms. Fox. Only cowards cling to beauty and other sources of illusory self-worth, but most human beings are indeed terrible cowards.

  78. mememe says:

    She’s been gifted with beautiful features. Not terribly smart though.

  79. Len says:

    Well of course she wouldn’t trade her looks for anything, it’s all she’s got.
    Take away the gorgeous face, and what exactly are you left with? Lets be honest here. I mean even she realizes this.

  80. Flora says:

    Would she trade face with a more beautiful one?

  81. Donna says:

    You say without the looks she’d be nothing?

    I’m just as jealous of awesome personality!
