Megan Fox went out of her way to spend Veteran’s Day with veterans

fp_8153777_fox_megan_lrr_14_25

Megan Fox did something surprisingly nice for Veteran’s Day, which was Friday – she actually went out of her way to spend time with veterans. Seriously! Megan and her husband Brian Austin Green went to The Veterans’ Home of California – these are some photos from the visit. Considering that I can’t see that any major female celebrity actually did a something nice for veterans on Veteran’s Day, I have to say… good for Megan! That’s really nice of her.

It’s pretty smart too, if you want me to look beyond the face-value “that’s nice” sentiment. Megan and her team are trying to ensure that she mixes up her image from surly, petty, foot-in-mouth chick to “supporting actress with a solid career who does good works”. Oh, and there was a rumor going around that Megan and Brian were splitting up too, so two birds with one stone (or photo op).

Regardless of any ulterior motives, however, it was just really nice to visit with the retired soldiers. Well done, Megan. Also, well done on her appearance too – meaning her 2011 Face, which doesn’t look tweaked into oblivion in these candid shots. She’s also put on a little weight, which looks great on her. I feel like… she’s trying to win me over? Maybe at some point. Here’s hoping!

    Never really cared for her but this is a lovely thing to do.
    Wish I could walk so comfortably in heels that high…

  2. lisa says:

    Good for her

    She looks really beautiful in those pictures.

  3. Patricia says:

    Good for her!

    She looks great.

    BAG looks like hell.

  4. Jenny says:

    At first sight i thougt the header picture was of carla bruni!
    Megan still looks horrible to me.

  5. Rita says:

    Any time someone makes an effort regarding old folks homes the result can only be positive. Charitable work with children is fun and the personal rewards come easy, one gets more than one gives with children. Retirement homes can be foreboding and the rewards come from a somewhat gloomy introspection, so good for them.

    Old actors never die, they just fade away on grainy film.

  6. Leigh says:

    Good deed.
    She was so much prettier before plastics. :(
    Love her shoes.

  7. Adrien says:

    And she also looks softer.

  8. El Kiddo says:

    i hope these two are not splitting up. i kinda like them together.

  9. only1shmoo says:

    I share the same sentiment, what she and BAG did was great, i just wish she didn’t always look like she’s trying to suppress a fart.

  10. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    Lovely thing to do and she looks pretty in these phots. I never cared for her as an actress but I always thought she was very beautiful if only she’d maintain some weight and not tweek with her face so much.

  11. AcornPaste says:

    Incredibly nice gesture.

  12. Pyewacket says:

    I wish more celebrities would visit and care about our Veteran’s!

    Good for both Megan and Brian. They have my respect.

  13. HotPockets says:

    I wish she would stop with the injections, it makes her look so puffy all of the time. She doesn’t bother me, even when she had diarrhea of the mouth.

  14. Jackie says:

    good thing to do, but just reminds me that her time in the spotlight may be up. she could have been something big, but screwed it up (bad interviews/mouthing off/too much surgery/marrying someone who seems like a douche). too bad.

  15. samira677 says:

    If I’m remembering correctly Megan has done this a couple of times before. So it’s not to stop any rumors. I don’t know why people assume everything a celebrity does is a publicity stunt. If this was a stunt there would have been photos of her with the veterans not leaving the home.

  16. Seal Team 6 says:

    I don’t care if it was for a photo op or not, this was a good thing to do. This country forgets their vets afraid they hang up their boots.

    And, I agree that she was prettier before the tweaking.

  17. Turtle Dove says:

    She did a lot more than me and anyone that I know. I wore a poppy and …. that’s it. Feel kinda guilty about that now. :(

  18. Seal Team 6 says:

    @samirra

    Excellent point.

  19. Wow says:

    Her face look so pretty and soft.
    I think it’s also the fact that she hasn’t tan/ colored her face to look tan.

    That’s actually subtle and feminine.

    and good for her for going some good.
    Even if they split, she wouldn’t need to do that, since there was no scandal associated with their relationship, so no positive PR campaign was needed here.

  20. valleymiss says:

    I like her. While it was pretty stupid career-wise to stand up to Michael Bay, I love that she did it. I love her and David Silver (lol) together, and I think she’s absolutely gorgeous. So she’s had shit done to her face? Almost all the starlets have had stuff done.

  21. crtb says:

    Three cheers!

  22. lucy2 says:

    Nice thing to do.
    Seems like they or their publicist tipped off the paparazzi, but in the long run it was a good thing to do.

  23. Shelly says:

    She looks really great here! I actually kind of love Megan. She’s less annoying than a lot of actors. She’s said some dumb things, but nothing too out there. I haven’t seen most of her movies, including the Transformers movies, but I secretly love Jennifer’s Body and thought she camped it up and was a hoot in that movie.

  24. Jenny says:

    I totally have a girl-crush on Megan. Always have.

  25. Dudette says:

    I like her too. And what a lovely thing for her and BAG (whom I still unashamedly love!) to do. Getting thrown off the Transformers franchise might yet be a blessing in disguise. Perhaps she needed a little bit of humble pie because she’s not as obnoxious as she used to be.

  26. e.non says:

    she drives in those heels?!?

  27. constance says:

    Look who saved up for red bottom heels, gurls!

    Must take a lot away from her botox budget to save up all that money for shoes. You know, ever since she hasn’t been able to break back into film.

    She’s still completely agency manufactured non-talent. haha

  28. bluhare says:

    Do you get thrown out of the Club if you wear shoes other than Laboutin?

    And I give her credit for trying to get her career back by being lower key. Hope she gets something respectable going.

  29. autumndaze says:

    Clearly a PR opportunity, with paparazzi called, at image repair.
    That being said, if it inspires anyone to further appreciate our veterans then, great.

  30. Cathy says:

    You’re right e.non those are some tall shoes, I could never stand up in those shoes, much less walk or drive with them on.

  31. gab says:

    Well done, Megan. She’s looking good here.

  32. iseepinkelefants says:

    When Megan started getting flak from Michael Bay she grew on me (I did always like Sam an Makala together in Transformers). I don’t find her offensive anymore.

    I also think she is WAY to good for BAG. I’m still puzzled by that pairing. How is he even relevant anymore? I think it was also a very bad career move for her. Don’t get me wrong maybe she loves him and that but from an outside perspective, girl what were you thinking?

    And I don’t know what she’s doing to her face, but pic #1, she looks bloated. She needs to stop.

  33. Jacqueline says:

    This was definately a PR visit. She is way too styled to be visitng old people. BAG for once looks his age. I was beginning to think he had work done. Megan’s surgeries aged her a lot! She was normal looking on Hope and Faith, amazing around Transformers and now this. (Still prettier than most people, but she had a lot of work done and some extensions plus fancy clothes.) My mom didn’t believe me she was 25! But a lot of girls now want to look older, like 14 year olds looking 25, 25 looking 35 etc. I dont think they are breaking up because Cancer (Brian) is the perfect match for a Taurus (Megan) just rough patches getting used to their personalities. Im glad she isnt talking as much as before. She learned to not gossip about people, especially bosses.

  34. Cam says:

    Can you guys believe this is Megan? : http://www.megansafox.com/nggallery/post/megan-fox-in-madame-figaro/image/1943/

    I couldn’t at first. I’m also normally a huge fan of not tanning the shit out of yourself when you’ve got really fair skin like Megan, but in her case i actually think she looks a lot more natural with a little tan on her.

  35. april says:

    She looks fantastic. I love her shoes. I applaud the fact she went to a veterans home.

  36. Carolyn says:

    Oh and paps just happened to be around? Hope she actually spent time with the veterans and spoke to them. BAG is gorgeous.

  37. Zigggy says:

    Love her outfit, love her hair colouring- she looks great. I’ve always kinda liked her despite the stupid things she says (she’s still young, I was somewhat dumb in those days too- thankfully nobody interviewed me so that anything stupid I said didn’t go down in history ;) . She’s very beautiful and it’s sad she feels she needs to tweak with her face.

  38. Rodin says:

    It’s called fixing her image that she destroyed for pissing off the biggest name in Hollywood in one Steven Speilberg. Let me know when she does this without the benefit of cameras to catch it and be printed on websites and spoke about on entertainment shows.

  39. Violet says:

    Whatever her motivation, I think it was a really great thing to do.

    I think we often forget to appreciate the enormous sacrifices our veterans have made on our behalf. Hats off to Megan and Brian for doing something really thoughtful to acknowledge them.

  40. Kelly says:

    Have always liked her. I think people are too hard on her.

  41. Catherine says:

    @Cam – you think she looks *more* natural with a *fake* tan than she does with her *actual* fair skin? That’s more than a little weird. :/
    On another note, she looks great. Better than she’s looked in a long time! And this was a really nice thing for her to do. Good for her!

  42. hydr0genic says:

    toe thumb!

  43. 2 Mainstream says:

    “Oh and paps just happened to be around?”

    The paps follow celebs around and stake out their houses.

  44. fallen says:

    She did a great thing, and i want her jacket! lol

  45. dahlia1947 says:

    Yeah I guess it’s nice of her, but i”m still suspicuous. Maybe the paps were called. I wouldn’t be surprised.

    Her face looks way too smooth and doughy like in those scary facebook pics when she had that swirl on her forehead! SCARY!

    And I can’t believe How white her skin is compared to those early pics of her BEFORE all the plastic surgery. Looks like she has Twilight makeup on!! Yikes!

  46. dahlia1947 says:

    @Rodin: Exactly!!

    “Perhaps she needed a little bit of humble pie because she’s not as obnoxious as she used to be.”

    She hasn’t talked. Give her a minute and we’ll see if she isn’t an obnoxious big mouth anymore.

  47. Faye says:

    Good for her! There aren’t many regular people who go out of their way to go to veterans homes and say thanks, I haven’t heard of any other celebs doing it either.

  48. Flan says:

    She has matured since Transformers II.

    Shia and the far older Michael Bay have not.

  49. Catherine says:

    @dahlia – Why “yikes”? We’re finally seeing her without loads and loads of FAKE tan. Why do you think it’s acceptable to mock someone’s skin color? I think she looks better like this than when she was fake orange.

  50. Happy21 says:

    I love these two as a couple and hope that they are not splitting up. I’ve never really found the appeal of Megan other than just another pretty face but I give her credit for trying to turn her career around. And really who knows, maybe she spent the time with the veterans because she really wanted to.

  51. Gigi says:

    Image cleanup on aisle 9. But good for her anyway. Boo on her publicist for rubbing it in our faces.

  52. kimberly says:

    haven’t seen her around in a while, hope she spent her time in acting class, because that’s where she really sucks hard in.

  53. dahlia1947 says:

    Catherine:

    I’m not mocking white,(human :D )skin. I’m saying she looks like a vampire. It has a grayish/white tone to it.

    It looks like she’s morphing into Jayde Nicole or maybe it’s the other way around. They both got the doughy, puffy look going.

  54. Cam says:

    @ Catherine–“you think she looks *more* natural with a *fake* tan than she does with her *actual* fair skin? That’s more than a little weird. :/ “

    I don’t think it’s “more than a little weird” to look at it that way. I know lots of girls who feel their skin tone looks more even–less pale/veiny/grey/jaundice/yellow (their words)–when they get a little tan on. Not every tan looks fake/orange.

    I also felt like she looked more natural in those pics because IMO she looks less botoxy/plump-fillery there than when she goes and does her usual vamp look on the red carpet (Pale skin/super heavy makeup).

    It might just be that in those pics she’s also wearing “nude” lipstick and just enough shadow to make her eyes pop and i felt that looked more natural (again, compared to her usual vamp/seductress look).

    She does looks great in these pics, i’m not denying that, i was just offering up a different look she’s done before that complemented her as well.

    I’ve always liked Megan, she actuallu seems like a very private person ! She needs to grow as an actress but I admire her honesty. That was a wonderful thing to do. She looks so much more healthy and natural as well. Her hubby is quite handsome !
