Megan Fox on what affects her: “My 8-year-old stepson tells me I’m beautiful”


For some reason, Megan Fox has been getting a lot of commenter sympathy lately. It’s not universal – there are still people (me) who think Megan is dumb as a box of hair, to the point where her stupidity and unprofessionalism is actually offensive. And yet so many are holding her up like she’s our newest feminist icon, like Megan and Susan B. Anthony share the same vision of female empowerment. I don’t really get it – Megan’s version of feminism is basically “I get told that I’m amazing all the time, I get to say whatever I want and act like a spoiled, unprofessional brat, and magically I’m the next big movie star.” Well, that didn’t work out for Megan, did it? And she’s still the casting equivalent of Typhoid Mary. BUT! She’s still a “model”.

So today’s Megan Fox news is about her neverending Armani modeling contract. I think she’s the face of Armani… jeans? Makeup? Underwear? I think it’s everything at this point. Whenever you think “Armani” you think “Megan Fox’s Latest (Down-Market) Face.” I doubt this is what Armani had in mind, but that’s what they’ve got. So, Armani released a new “interview” Megan did, and the gist of it is “Megan Fox is beautiful.” Sorry if that’s a spoiler. You shouldn’t watch this video if Megan’s voice drives you up the wall:

OMG, she just learned the word “iconic.” She says it like it’s new to her. GOD, her voice. It’s like a version of Paris Hilton’s baby-stripper voice. Other than that, I got nothing. I look forward to the day when we stop pretending that Megan is important, and she can fulfill her promise as an actress by starring in music videos. That Eminem video should have been her career peak.

    @kaiser,did you see johnny depp with alice cooper rock show pictures,it was hillarious

  2. Luna says:

    It’s overwhelming to me too that she is allowed to talk. That being said, I have to admit she can look really really pretty. I just wish her beauty and her brain were on the same level.

  3. Jess says:

    No one hates her more than Vanessa Marcil, I’m sure.

  4. brin says:

    Well, at least in her case it’s true, unlike Leann Rimes.

  5. john says:

    its nice to know that you love to hate megan fox! what did she do to you!

  6. talia says:

    I was pro-megan in a megan v michael bay showdown, but that’s like saying to do you like anyone more than Hitler, right? It was more about the fact people can’t stand Michael Bay than that they like Megan Fox.

    As for the eight year old step son comments. Please, she’s been trying to change her sex image for awhile now, playing the “wife and mother” card constantly. Do I think she loves her man and stepson? Sure. But she’s definitely using that more domestic image to try to win some female fans, since most of them decided they hated her for her overly sexual, and dumb ass image before.

    And that poor kid is gonna be super confused once he hits puberty and realizes his stepmom is megan effing fox. lol

  7. Roma says:

    That video does not look like her at all. For a moment I thought I was watching Natalie Portman.

  8. Peace says:

    Mom didn’t’ have massive plastic surgery either.
    She looks like she overdosed on botox.
    How odd that she is so into her stepsons opinion of her beauty.She should take this as an opportunity to pull out some photo’s of her pre plastic surgery face and warn him of the dangers of being so shallow that you allow a surgeon to cut your face up.

  9. Bee says:

    Aww, I can’t help it, I LIKE HER! She may be dumb as a box of rocks, but mostly I think shes harmless and keeps a low profile unless shes promoting something.

    Plus, she seems really dedicated to her hubby and stepson.

  10. Laura says:

    She WAS beautiful, before she went overboard on the plastic surgery. I wonder if she knows she f’ed her face up…

  11. Eve says:

    @ Kaiser:

    And yet so many are holding her up like she’s our newest feminist icon

    How about those who don’t like the bashing she’s getting lately (especially because it seems preemptive damage control by Bay and Transformers’s producers) but also don’t think she’s any feminist icon? We exist, you know.

    That’s my problem with your opinion about her…that somehow you’re implying that those who hate the way Michael Bay and Shia LeDouche have been trying to diss her — yes, she behaved unprofessionally and she got fired for that — are, at the same time, embracing her as some sort of feminist.

    I sure am not. However, as I said above, she got fired, she shouldn’t be used as a way to promote the new movie (you have to admit they’re doing that) because she’s not part of the franchise anymore.

    I repeat, what Bay has been doing with her lately is bullying. She was stupid, immature and lacked hindsight but he’s in no way better than her — and he’s a 46 year old man. It is really bad when a dumb girl looks more mature than a 46 year old man.

    Because Fox, unlike Bay, has been keeping her mouth shut — when other (untalented pretty girls like her) would probably milk this to no end in order to stay relevant.

    P.S.: Her voice is much less annoying than Blake Lively’s.

  12. Charlotte says:

    Vanessa Marcil is sooooo much more attractive and seems so nice and down to earth. Megan Fox used to be pretty, but now her face is way too angular. Just because Transformers did really well doesn’t mean you’re the next Audrey Hepburn or Meryl Streep for God’s sake.

  13. Kiska says:

    @ Bee

    I’m with you. I don’t get all the hate for Megan. Sure, she’s still young and says dumb s**t but she’s not flashy and famewhorey like Kardashians or Blake L. I truly think she is a beautiful woman but she needs to ease up on the botox.

  14. Bee (the other one) says:

    I’m so sick of Mrs. Brian Austin Green. She’s beyond annoying and full of herself for doing absolutely nothing.

  15. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Megan doesn’t sound anywhere near as contrived as Paris Hilton. I have been watching Paris’s show and the bitch works that baby voice but when she doesn’t need it she sounds like a whole another person. I like Megan’s voice, you can tell she is trying hard not to slur or fumble over words, she will get smoother if she keeps practicing her diction.

    Megan didn’t sound stupid or anything in that video. She was just answering questions. I didn’t like Megan when she first came on the scene but there is really no reason to dislike her now. Megan hasn’t done anything or said anything in the past year or so but get married. I can’t imagine what she has done. So she talked some mess in the past, big deal, she got a lil cocky, then got knocked down too size. Seems to me Megan has been on the straight and narrow ever since.

    No one is regarding Megan as a feminist icon but Micheal Bay talking s*it about her when she hasn’t said anything since she was let go from Transformers is unnecessary and just plain mean. He came off like a totally A-hole to me.

  16. mln76 says:

    agree with talia in the Bay-vs-Fox battle I was pro Megan that doesn’t mean I think she’s talented.
    Basically what’s happening to her is the same thing that happened to Jennifer Love Hewitt she’s aging and as the male audience has moved on to the next new young thing the lack of talent is obvious, maybe television would be a better fit for Fox as it was for Hewitt.
    Couple that with the bad plastic surgery and obnoxious comments and people are sick of her.

  17. Lem says:

    I didn’t know Armani made makeup

  18. Jezi says:

    @Charlotte ITA…his mother is gorgeous as well. I hate when people talk insensitively while using their stepkids. I’m sure Vanessa doesn’t appreciate those comments. Megan is beautiful, much more before the excess plastic surgery but that comment could’ve been left out.

  19. Mimii says:

    Poor Vanessa- having to deal with this woman so long. I <3 Vanessa. I don’t understand how BAG could have gotten her and downgraded so badly.
    It would irk me that she’s trying to play mommy.

  20. Mika says:

    I’m with all the people who feel sorry for Megan. I don’t think Megan is a feminist but I do think Micheal Bay is a misogynist. I think the way he uses women in his movies is straight up bad for our society. Yes, Megan Fox is an idiot, and she got fired because she ran her mouth of and she deserved it. But Micheal Bay encourages men to treat women like walking tits. Where is his punishment?

  21. original kate says:

    i think megan’s stepson mistook a mannequin for her.

  22. mimi says:

    Sorry, but it sounds like a whole lot of girl jealousy being thrown at Megan. I don’t know why I like her but I do..?? I think beautiful women often get bashed by other women (she’s dumb as rocks!) (she needs a good humbling!) Really, ladies? Maybe I missing something here, but I just don’t get all the hatred for this girl.

  23. k says:

    @ Bee: I totally agree. She’s pretty harmless.

  24. Rachel() says:

    Still like her! For some reason. I hope she continues to make crappy movies for years to come.

  25. Rachel() says:

    @Jezi: Seriously? She’s not allowed to mention her stepson? He’s a part of her life too. I highly doubt that Vanessa, who hasn’t been w/ BAG for years, is so insecure that a compliment her son gave another woman would hurt her.

  26. Lisa says:

    I don’t feel sorry for her. Pity is one of the worst feelings anyone can feel for another person. I like her and she’s come across extremely mature in keeping her mouth shut in reference to the MB comments…THUS FAR.

  27. sara says:

    She reminds me of Paris Hilton and Heidi Montag. Agree Kaiser,
    MF’s voice is totally annoying.

  28. Cherry Rose says:

    @Kiska – Still young? Megan is now 25 years old, almost 26. That’s the age when people start growing up and should know better than to say idiotic things, perhaps using that quote, “Think before you speak”.

    In no way am I a Megan Fox fan nor do I think she is in any way a feminist. However, Michael Bay is known to be a bully and especially rude to his female cast, and the fact that someone stood up to him and called him out on his shit should be applauded for.

    However, the manner in which Megan called him out was unprofessional and very stupid, and also showed how ungrateful she was. So, I have no problems with her being fired over it.

    But there is no way Megan is or should be considered a feminist icon. Here’s a rehash of some of the stupid things she’s said to disprove that theory:

  29. kris31 says:

    i think it’s weird that she does all this stuff to her face which doesn’t need plastic surgery at all.. but totally leaves her neck alone.. she can’t try to fix those lines?

  30. Ilovemee says:

    I liked Megan when she was mouthy & feisty in all her interviews! And I don’t think she’s had any plastic surgery. She is way too young for that. Losing weight can drastically change the look of your face. Team Fox

  31. ZenB says:

    She’d better be beautiful she paid enough for it. I do wonder if Bay paid for the first round (when *I* thought she was beautiful). Her going and ruining his work of art could have caused friction. LOL!

    Seriously who paid for the transformation between Hope and Faith when she was “eh” looking to the hottie in the first Transformers? I’m guessing she paid for the rest.

  32. ZenB says:

    @Ilovemee you have GOT to be kidding. I’m guessing you’ve never seen these.

  33. Patricia says:

    UGH – couldn’t even finish watching it. What a dingbat. She talks (voice, vocabulary, mannerism) like a 15 year old. How can she expect anyone to take that seriously?

    And someone needs to tell her she’s about a decade too late to use the word “pop”.

    I will admit that the stepson comment was sweet.

  34. ZenB says:

    @Cherry Rose – thank you for posting those trips down Megan memory lane. I live in LA. Hating or at least making fun of Michael Bay is a requirement for living here – even for Michael. Those posts reminded me of why for the first time in my life I was forced to stick up for him. He may be an @hole but at least he’s a consistent @hole. Megan contradicts herself so much she should be on meds.

    *Megan claims that Transformers director Michael Bay has been “traumatized” by skinny actresses, and required her to put on weight. *

    –Zeig Heil!
    (with apologies to Spielberg)

  35. vivien says:

    I thought she came across pretty well in this interview. I remember watching a few Megan Fox interviews on YouTube a while back, and was surprised that she came across well spoken and actually intelligent in some. Also, I thought she did well in Jennifer’s Body, and could have potential to be a really interesting actress if given the chances.

  36. Jezi says:

    @Rachel why say it though? I have no problem with Megan, I think she’s harmless & a beautiful woman. I just think it’s a ridiculous comment & that’s my opinion. You have yours & I have mine.

  37. Turtle Dove says:

    Megan is the more mature one in this situation because two years on she’s the one that is keeping her trap shut. Michael “cry-BAY-b” bullies women and treats them like meat. When one of the them has the audacity to toss out her 2¢ then all hell breaks loose. Kaiser, I don’t think anyone is holding Megan up as feminist martyr. She’s a woman with enough gumption and self-respect to walk away when a director acts like a tyrant.

    Bully-Bay likes to get his minions to throw out disparaging remarks about the female leads and shift blame elsewhere, so he doesn’t look like a douche. The thing is everyone knows that this is trickle down. The sh*t slides down from the top spraying those below.

    The guy has zero self esteem and a raging ego. Those two things have a tough time co-existing. He’s also intimidated by women and the way that they are presented in film and treated afterwards shows this.

    Could you ever imagine James Cameron treating women the way Bay does? Never. I’ve never heard complaints from women about the way this director conducts himself with female actors. “cry-BAY-b” lacks vision, creativity, and the forward thinking that more esteemed directors have. Could Bay put a woman in a lead role like Cameron has? With strength of character and determination? Nope. Cameron is a work horse and perfectionist, but is also able to empower women in his films (Terminator, Aliens, hell even Rose in Titanic).

    Why does Megan have to play by their rules? Can’t she be a woman who does her job AND be able to give interviews that show her personality too? A woman can only take so much before she says enough. I’d have way less respect for her if she allowed him to railroad her and she did nothing. Sure she was immature and she was about 22 at the time the last TF came out, but Bay is FORTY-SIX NOW acting like a school yard bully.

    Like I said before, if this is how she’s treated two years after working with them then being on this set must have been hell. I applaud her for standing up for herself.

    This picture says it all….. Bay is all boys’ club… I’m calling this one, “Two douches standing.”

  38. hateonit. says:

    hes an icon and his label is iconic? reeeeealllly?!? she sounds horribly uneducated. Her voice is annoying as hell. at least shes pretty…

  39. coucou says:

    ok i live in europe and have been without internet for a while…but what’s this about her being fired by Stephen Spielberg?

    true, she’s drop dead gorgeous, she’d make a great rockette or crazy horse, she’s got the appeal of a major burlesque star…but what does she have beneath that beautiful exterior…? Most actors these days need to know how to walk the walk AND talk the talk…

    she’s had enough time now in la la land to be taught how to shut her trap and work it…she needs to take some lessons from the pros instead of just acting like a pro who’s her own pimp…puhlease, Missy Elliott could teach her a thing or two. Otherwise, bo – ring.

  40. Ang says:

    Megan Fox has 3 movies coming up, one with Jonn Hamm is in post production. She is in the Dictator and she has been cast in the Knock up sequel.

    She got fired, laid low, and now seems like she is making some smart movie choices. I don’t have any particular strong feelings of hate or like for her but it seems like she is going to be working.

  41. SillyOne says:

    This bitch doesn’t hold a candle to Vanessa Marcil…She isn’t good enough to wipe the sweat off Vanessa’s a$$.

  42. Isabella says:

    I am not particularly a Megan Fox fan, I don’t know that much about her or seen many of her movies, only what I read about her sometimes in here, but I like her. I saw the video, then I read the whole article and comments and what I find ironic is that despite the accusations, she is not the one that sounds dumb and immature; it’s the author of the article and the bloggers’ comments in here that do. Some people seem to have an unnecessary and bizarre dislike about this girl and they seem to use any random immature insults to put her down. Calm down people, she is not that bad.

  43. usagichan says:

    She’s not the only one that has complained about working with Michael Bay. Rosie what’s her face just did an interview with GQ about how she met Michael Bay:

    “I first met Michael back in 2009; it was on the set of the Christmas commercial for Victoria’s Secret. I remember the first thing Michael said to me— before he even introduced himself or asked me my name—was “Can you walk?” And I looked at him like, “What is this man talking about? Yeah, of course I can walk.” And then he proceeded to tell them to get me in the car, and then I was driven—I mean, honestly, I want to say it was about half a mile out in the desert. I kept thinking, “This is a joke, right?” And the car dumped me in the middle of the desert. All I was wearing was a bra and underwear and a big, billowing, black, floor-length cape and high heels. And he says, “OK, when we shout action, you’re going to walk!” and I assumed I would be doing this in several stages. They yelled action, and the car sped off back to set, and I just was like, “Well, what am I supposed to do?” So I walked all the way back to where the camera was standing, which took me—I would say a good 10, 12 minutes, and it was a proper runway stomp—on salt flats; it was like 100 degrees, felt like fire. I remember walking back and being not impressed by the whole thing. I was pretty pissed off afterwards; I just looked at Michael, and he goes, “I guess you can walk, then.”

  44. Laughternrain says:

    ZenB, just letting you know that those ‘celebrityplasticsurgery’ sites are a load of photo-shopped b.u.l.l.s.h.1.t. Same as the celebrityporn and celebnaked sites. Most of them are cut/pastes and photoshops. They are not true sites. Don’t fall for them. I’m not saying Fox hasn’t had it, just that those ‘sites’ are as well-known as fakes, as the Nigerian emails are scams and fraud.

  45. Ruffian9 says:

    Still can’t hold a candle to Vanessa Marcil. Never will.

  46. Camille says:

    Fox is completely over-rated. I will never understand the love for her either.

  47. Maritza says:

    I thought she was pretty good in “Jennifer’s Body”. She’s harmless, I wish her well, marriage seems to suit her.

  48. Flan says:

    Never saw commenters saying she’s a new feminist icon.

    Only that Michael Bay was sexist in the way he directed her and sympathy was for her that she did not like that.

    You’re exageratting a lot if you say one automatically means the other.

  49. april says:

    I’m not a Megan Fox fan but I do think she is gorgeous and seems pretty bright. She can say raunchy and outrageous things that I don’t find attractive at all.

  50. KLaw says:

    i’m with Peace. All the way.

    ZenB, thanks for posting the plastic surgery link for those who are not yet educated.

    Munchies, you made me look at THE THUMB! aaarrgggghhh !!!

  51. lahve says:

    What the hell did Megan ever do to you? You know NOTHING about her or what went down between her & Michael Bay. Did you know he made her wear a bikini when she was 15 as an extra in a movie? Did you know her audition for Transformers was him filming her washing his car? Yeah, that sounds like a REAL stand up guy. The comments Megan made about him were said in jest, and apologized for, (and said a full year before she got fired, she even started filming for Transformers 3, her Hitler comment is just being used an an excuse).

    Obviously you don’t know the FIRST thing about female empowerment, otherwise you would know, tearing other women down has NOTHING to do with feminism.
