Megan Fox: ‘I’ve never been validated by work or fame or Hollywood or any of that’

Megan Fox covers the March issue of Marie Claire UK, and these are some images from the photoshoot. I’ve seen some complaints about these pics already, but I kind of like them. I think Megan is one of those women who can’t really “pull off” strong editorials or crazy styling. She’s best when she just sticks to simple editorial visions, like white backgrounds or “posing through a window”. As for the interview… she’s just talking about babies and how she loves being a mom.

Megan Fox wants more kids. While the devoted mother-of-one is grateful for her successful Hollywood film career, she has admitted all she wants to do is spend time with her four-month-old son Noah and hopes to give him siblings as soon as possible.

The ‘This is 40′ actress said: “I’ve never been validated by work or fame or Hollywood or any of that. I recognize the blessings when they come – like, I recognize I’m so lucky to work with Judd [Apatow] – but the ultimate satisfaction for me is being with my son. I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can. And I want to have more kids. That is where my heart is.”

Megan, 26, confessed having a baby has been a lifelong dream and she is now finding it a struggle to juggle her filming commitments with motherhood because she feels work has become redundant.

She sighed: ”All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it… It’s very hard for me to do this stuff, because I feel like this isn’t my job any more. My job is to be with him.”

Fox also credited Noah with helping her battle against OCD, explaining: “When they come out they are covered in all kinds of stuff. I took him right on my chest and, from that moment, nothing he does freaks me out. I don’t want to give him a complex.”

The brunette beauty also revealed the secret to her marital bliss with ‘Beverly Hills, 90210′ hunk Brian Austin Green – who she wed in June 2010 – claiming it takes hard work and a good dose of tolerance because the pair are polar opposites of each other.
Megan told Marie Claire magazine: ”I just think we got lucky. I believe he’s my soulmate. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t take work, because we are very, very different. ‘But we are tolerant of each other and we try to be patient with each other, and I don’t try to turn him into me and he knows not to try to turn me into him. He really is amazing. I should never, ever even think about complaining.”

Is it weird that I actually believe her when she says “I’ve never been validated by work or fame or Hollywood or any of that”? I think she’s telling the truth. Unlike most of the famewhores of Hollywood, Megan doesn’t seem to NEED it so much. Like, Hollywood has been a means to an end for her, and she doesn’t need the constant attention and validation that so many actors need. As for Megan having more babies – sure. I could see that. I’m sure she’ll have another kid.

    Another one who can’t seem to close her mouth in pictures.

  2. Harpreet says:

    I think these are the best covers she has had yet. She should keep the stylist!

  3. RocketMerry says:

    Doing better, Megan. Baby steps, though.

  4. Nicolette says:

    She is so beautiful. And I believe her sentiments are true. She’s always seemed pretty honest with her thoughts and views.

  5. mln76 says:

    My impression of Fox is that she’s a slightly smarter slightly more grounded version of Jessica Alba.
    I think she’s very full of herself because she thinks that her physical beauty translates into some actual acting talent. She thinks because the public at large doesn’t see her alleged skills that means she’s ‘too good’ for Hollywood. She has the face and body of a movie star with little charisma and less talent but what else can she do?

    • V4Real says:

      Here’s what she can do… Keep hoping those acting gigs come in because her husband is now out of a job. His TV series “The Wedding Band ” has been cancelled.

      • MsAubra says:

        yeah, and it doesn’t seem likely he’s gonna get that 11K he’s suing his ex for neither

      • Debbie says:

        @msauba the judge threw the case out said it was a bogus claim and encouraged Vanessa marcil, his ex to sue for 50k for defamation or damages or something like that. Haven’t read if she sued or just chose to ignore him.

        He sounds like a great guy though creates a bogus lawsuit against the woman raising his eldest kid, hate to see what he will do to Megan if they break up.

        Oh and I think she looks pretty and less plastic in these photos. Can’t stand her as an “actress” but wish her and her son well, something tells me they are going to need it.

  6. bns says:

    I get the sense that she feels this way because the work isn’t being offered to her anymore. But if she’s happy then that’s great.

  7. Liz says:

    New momhood – its an exhilirating time. I am envious. Lucky little Noah and lucky Brian!

  8. Debbie says:

    Guess that’s a good thing since after the promo blitz she did on this is 40 and it being yet another massive flop I don’t think Hollywood is calling anymore.

    Glad she is happy but I disagree that she doesn’t like the attention she love it and was calling the paps constantly when it first slipped away however, when it was gone I think she found she was actually happier and now doesn’t need it. But she tried and still tries to hard to want to be done done.

  9. Faye says:

    I believe her. Given the kind of roles she’s had, I rather *hope* she doesn’t get her validation from that.

    I think it’s sweet that she’s always wanted to be a mom and is apparently happy with that. I’d be interested to see her in a “real” role which actually has some meat to it; I’ve always been under the impression she has more depth than previously revealed.

  10. shewolf says:

    I think its cute she thinks she has a career. I dont want to hate on her but you are where you are for your face and thats about it.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Agree. She’s very very beautiful and seems relatively intelligent-I just think acting isn’t for her. I guess it’s a good thing she is happy being a wife and mom.

      I did like what she had to say about BAG not trying to make her into him and vice versa.

      • tabasco says:

        On what planet is this person even remotely intelligent????

      • ??? says:

        I think the operative word in OriginalKitten’s post is “relatively.” Perhaps Fox is kinda sorta smart by Hollyweird standards (which are generally quite low). But by any other standards, she’s a dunce.

        I’ve never followed Fox or her career. She’s never interested me. Nor do I feel she’s as special in the looks department as so many others — including her — do; but perhaps that’s more a matter of my finding unique or even unconventional looks more interesting than too-perfect doll faces (as weird and possibly nonsensical as that sounds). Her looks do, however, seem to be all she has (or had?) propelling her acting career.

  11. MsAubra says:

    Your “talent” was never worth the paper your SAG card was printed on neither…

  12. Annie says:

    What has she done for people to be this negative? It’s like she kicked your puppy. Like it or not, beauty is an asset not just in Hollywood but in the world. You’re beautiful and doors open to you. It has been this way since society started and it’ll be this way ’til the world ends. Don’t be bitter. People get ahead however they can, and Hollywood loves good looks more than talent.

  13. andrea says:

    I don’t think you purposely do that to your face and body for fun. You get it done because you want to look better by Hollywood standards. And you want that because you want the career and the fame. It’s not like Megan’s the girl off doing theater just to work on her craft, you know? If she’s not showing up much on the radar, it’s not because she’s shunning the Hollywood way, it’s because she’s just not getting hired much.

    But well, motherhood has a way of washing away a lot of the public’s cynicism. I do hope she enjoys being a mother and spending time with her son. She seems to get along great with Brian’s first son, Kassius.

  14. Abby says:

    Sweet interview. Not to be sour milk, but doesn’t her husband also have a child? So… she’s also a stepmom? No mention in this article? I blame the magazine… not Megan though.

  15. K-rock says:

    Lies! Lies! She is validated by fame. Otherwise she wouldn’t have gone under the knife. She was beautiful before, and still is now, so she clearly aware about Hollywood and looks.

  16. Green_Eyes says:

    If she didn’t need validation, she wouldnt have had all the cosmetic work done, the tattoos to compete w/ Angelina Jolie, nor made the comment in an article that she was the next Jolie (could be wrong in recollection here but also commented she was a younger & prettier version of Angelina).

    Yeah…not buying it…

  17. tabasco says:

    Give me an f-ing break. She doesn’t need fame or Hollywood validation, which is the reason she’s had 5,000 surgeries and did a ho car wash to get a movie role. Just like she doesn’t want to be objectified, which is why she posed in her panties on a mag cover.

    • poppy says:

      i think she might be so stupid she’s forgotten all her try-hards for validation.

      at least she is consistent: do one thing and then go on to say how awful it was/is. every. time. whilst in bra and panties promoting something she is so over.
      her role in the apatow movie isn’t objectifying, she’s just an attractive piece of young meat that has her boobies squeezed by his wife.

      she’s as deep as a florida snowfall.

  18. Sal says:

    Stupid question but…how does someone like this make money in Hollywood? She isn’t really in anything…and nothing linesd up either. Living off if transformers money (maybe)?

  19. Aurelia says:

    Just realised she looks really Irish. Her skin is very pale and the eyes and the dark hair. She looks straight out of Belfast. More gorge than your usual there of course.

  20. PALIMJOHNSON says:

    shE looks classy and delicate..i mean not skinny just perfect delicate.And she is a beautiful woman and getting beautifuller with age,but wont age well past 35-38 i just know.

  21. Issa says:

    I just can’t help from liking her and she doesn’t look so botoxed and puffed. Maybe she finally laid off of the fillers?

  22. KellyinSeattle says:

    She needs to close her mouth once in awhile, unless she’s got really bad allergies~

  23. Caroline says:

    I hope she’s genuinely happy with her husband.
    They met when she was 19 and he was in his 30s…12 year age difference, I can’t help but think he keeps on influencing her…
    Anyways, hope she’s happy with him.

  24. JEL says:

    She is looking better these days…more like herself. The over-filled, over ‘toxed tightness wasn’t working for her. Keep it up!!!
