Megan Fox says dumb sh-t to “to throw people off the scent”

fox1

Megan Fox, Nobel laureate, is the cover girl for the new issue of Interview Magazine, and the New York Daily News has an early excerpt. Apparently, Megan Fox is a genius. Or so she says. Because all along, she’s secretly been plotting to make herself look like a moron. Not just a moron, a nasty, intemperate, immature, offensively stupid moron. It was all part of her plan, you see. She tells the mag: “In the past, I’ve been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality… So I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what’s really going on in my life.” Or she really is that stupid, insecure and bratty, and she’s just tired of being called out on her bullsh-t. Either/or.

Who said she was nuts?

Megan Fox has revealed her thoughtful, sensitive side in Interview magazine’s latest issue, in which the star chats with, of all people, “The Hangover” funnyman Zach Galifianakis about the pressures of fame and how much her bad-girl image is a result of her own attempts at misdirection.

The result is a surprisingly thoughtful portrait of a woman who has been pegged as, alternately, a brat, a lunatic or an ingrate throughout the years by the media.

For example, Fox gives a reasonable explanation for her dislike for the paparazzi.

“I don’t really resent being on the red carpet as much as I do having to deal with the paparazzi,” she says. “The photographers on the red carpet, that’s their job.”

It’s a surprisingly levelheaded comment from someone who’d gone from the love interest in “Transformers 3″ to the villain of the production.

Last month, Fox was dumped from Michael Bay’s film before shooting started. Nobody can seem to settle on an official reason (Bay says she’s too skinny; Fox says she quit voluntarily; most people think she was straight-up fired), but the second it was announced (Fox was replaced by Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), everyone’s minds flashed back to an interview where Fox compared Bay as a director to dictators like Hitler and Napoleon.

A mistake, she says, that doesn’t indicate her real demeanor.

“In the past, I’ve been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality,” Fox told Galifianakis. “So I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what’s really going on in my life. So I have sort of aided the media in printing these misconceptions, which I regret.”

In any case, Fox won’t have to contend with the “Transformers” circus any longer. She’ll be appearing in this month’s “Jonah Hex” alongside Josh Brolin, and after that, it’s “Passion Play” with Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray.

Her projects after that are unclear, although IMDB has her listed as rumored to play a mermaid in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the fourth entry in Disney’s massively lucrative franchise.

So just remember: If she releases a statement saying Johnny Depp is like Kim Jong Il on set, she doesn’t really mean it, people.

As much as I want to think that Megan Fox won’t be around to kick around much longer, I suspect that she’s still got some semblance of a career as “the hot girl”. Granted, people are tiring of her, especially when there are other “hot girls” who are less trouble. It would be very interesting to see if she actually does end up getting cast opposite Johnny Depp. I really, truly suspect that she won’t, and that’s not just wishful thinking. The Pirates franchise doesn’t need Megan Fox stunt-casting. So what does Megan’s career future hold? Eh… she’ll probably blow her way into another part that will solidify her “hot girl” status, and bitch about the whole time. After that, who knows?

    I can’t STAND her. She acts like what she says is so intelligent…when really she is dumb.

  2. Boombeeba says:

    I like that bottom picture! Purrrty

  3. saintdevil says:

    Why did she get a lip injection? Now she comes across as dumb even before she opens her mouth…

  4. bite me says:

    another jessica alba in the making

  5. NayNay says:

    I think she is F.O.S! She is a dumb biotch. She is just trying to ‘save face’, but honey, it ain’t working. She looks almost as fake as Kim Kardasian. Perhaps, they both went to the same dr.

  6. LindaR says:

    Scent!?! What scent? You mean she smells too?

  7. Bill Hicks is God says:

    I dunno. The smell of burning rubber is a pretty pervasive…

  8. Samantha says:

    Didn’t gaga basically say the same thing a few weeks ago? Meh.

  9. journey says:

    if she truly misdirects and misleads in interviews as she says, does that mean that she’s really madly in love with michl bey, loved washing his car, and is secretly going to be in transformers 3, but that she’s such a fantastic actress that we won’t even realize she’s taken over the bumblebee role? just to break out of the typecasting as the hot girl of course!

  10. miranda says:

    Meh, she wasn’t that bad in Jennifer’s Body. Buy a couple of orphans and she’ll be fine.

  11. vivienne says:

    for the first second when i saw the pic i thought it was Michelle Bombshell again.

  12. Alison says:

    There’s nothing more pretentious than a dumb person, pretending to be smart.

  13. Dave says:

    Her agent told her to say that, because he got tired of coaching how to speak English.

  14. Lemon Drops says:

    That’s just her excuse for being stupid. To make it look intentional when she’s just a moron.

  15. LindyLou says:

    Haha they photoshopped her freak thumbs!!!

  16. Scarlet Vixen says:

    You’re right LindyLou! They must’ve had a thumb-double, cuz those aren’t hers! LoL

    And can this girl give any face other than ‘dead behind the eyes’? Having a nice bone stucture isn’t enough (especially if you’re dumb and hard to work with)–make a different face for pete’s sake…

  17. original kate says:

    i’m thinking the interview went a little more like this:

    megan: i say stupid stuff to…um, like, throw people off the scent.
    interview: what do you mean?
    megan: well, like, i pretend i’m stupid but i’m really not. i’m…whatever the opposite of stupid is. not stupid?
    interview: i think the word is intelligent.
    megan: don’t be silly – i don’t speak italian!
    interview: ???
    megan: oooh! there’s something shiny over there!

  18. Solveig says:

    I’m quite tired of people calling her names, it’s not like she’s the only dumb actress that says stupid things (not so stupid, IMHO I heard worst from… Brad Pitt?). When I was an adolescent and in my tired mid-twenty I used to say dumb things just to shock the ignorant people, and it worked.
    In any case celebrities are asked to be entertaining not to be Nobel nominees, and considering the amount of comments on the thread about her I think she succeeds.
    As Miranda said above Megan just needs to adopt some orphans and she’ll turn a saint.

  19. mary simon says:

    those photos looks like she’s channeling bombshell mcgee. nothing smart about that!

  20. danielle says:

    Top pic is beautiful. I think she’s just young – if she’s still spouting this crap in her 30s, it’ll be a completely different thing.

  21. DJ says:

    Megan Fox says dumb shit because ummm SHE IS DUMB !!!

  22. andrea says:

    did she say that bay had her wash the car as an audition? and then trash him for it? he’s gross to do that, no doubt, but i have little sympathy for someone who willingly subjects herself to that (as if she couldnt say NO, im not going to wash your fing car you perv) and then whines about it. nobody was holding a gun to her head.

  23. Majosha says:

    I also thought she was the McGee idiot when I first saw the photo. Sadly, that’s the only part of this story that’s even remotely interesting.

  24. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I know she’s not ‘running for Jesus’ or anything, but if she admits to being disingenuous so frequently while on the record, why should anyone believe her public statements in the future?

  25. bellaluna says:

    The scent of what? Her authentic stupidity or the bullsh!t she spouts about how she’s not stupid?

  26. jover says:

    Excellent comments posters alison, vivienne and original Kate who made my day. Can’t at least a few of these young celebutards act like they’ve read a few novels,etc. subscribe to some mags/journals of current opinion and maybe have a fav poet or writer – or is that too much to ask. Anyway, she’s not young she’s a 24 yr old dumbarse she get’s no pass. For the life of me I don’t see how anyone can view plastic Megafarse as hot in anyway when she lacks even the basics of grace, tact, class, and intellect – have standards fallen that far? BTW in the last pic she looks totally vacant.

  27. Kevin says:

    Those photos remind me of Rose McGowan from Doom Generation, you know back when she was hot and not a husband Thief. Was that a Bill Hicks sighting up there? awesome!!

  28. Missfit says:

    I do agree about the paparazzi and the difference of the professional photographers on the red carpet. Most of the paps could be any sick mofo with a criminal record who just picks up a camera and gets too close to some of the celebrity and their kids…that I don’t like. Some celebs like to parade their kids around town on purpose, which I feel bad for the kids, it’s not their fault. Children aren’t toys or this new “trend” to have and most of the celebs have a child as if it were a new Gucci bag, candy or latest gadget. Then just to have nannies take care of them, not themselves. Not all celebs, but most of them do that. I just kinda went off the subject there, woops,lol. I’m naturally one of those people who can’t stand being stared at or within a crowd or tight places, I get claustrophobic, I’d hate to be famous in Hollywood. However, celebrities are over paid, they aren’t exactly brain surgeons or doctors or fire men saving lives, it’s ridiculous.

  29. Poppy says:

    She looks like Bombshell McGee in these pictures.

  30. Mistral says:

    I thought this was Katy Perry

  31. Camille says:

    She reminds me of Katy Perry (sp) in those top 2 pics. I find her very ordinary and not as amazing looking as some other people seem to find her. She also seems like a dumbass to me, I don’t think you can believe a word she says.

  32. oh hey says:

    She looks like Sasha from Titan Maximum in the first pic.

  33. Ruffian9 says:

    plasticface

  34. Statler says:

    Funny so many of you thought she was Bombshell. To me she looks like she’s *trying* to channel Linda Evangelista.

  35. Mouse says:

    I’d be more interested in these magazines if they’d STOP photoshopping every flaw away. Give me some scars, some wrinkles, some variation, something REAL and I’ll be interested. Otherwise, forget it.

    I think the actual mannequin she’s straddling is sporting a more intelligent expression. Is she physically incapable of closing her mouth all the way? Even in that casual pic, she can’t seem to keep her lips together. Boring whore.

  36. Cheyenne says:

    She says dumb shit because she’s doing what comes naturally.

  37. Jenna says:

    Upper lip. Been looking a bit bigger as of late since she hasn’t been promoting a movie.

  38. Jame E. Son says:

    HaHaHaHa…ahaaaahaaa! Ahhhaaaaahahahahahhaahahahaha!

  39. Megan Fox is the sexiest actress that i have seen, i love the dark hair and seductive eyes ,-*
