Megan Fox: ‘Women don’t have to be desperate & try so hard’

Megan Fox

Megan Fox covers the August issue of Cosmo to promote Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. For real. She’s in a “tips to please your man in bed” magazine as part of the publicity for a kids’ movie. Cosmo is a regular tour stop for Megan though. I think this is her fifth US cover, and she’s had a handful of international covers too. Back in 2009, Megan used Cosmo to talk about the all powerful vadge. By 2012, she was really into discussions of soulmates. Megan has changed even more since then and has appared in Parents magazine. So far, these new Cosmo excerpts reflect her new outlook. That is, being sexy isn’t everything:

On women being in charge of their sexuality:
“Women don’t have to be desperate and try so hard. Allow yourself to be strong and powerful and men will be crawling on their hands and knees.”

On finding the perfect mate: “You have to be with someone who loves you at your absolute worst, because you can’t be an actress every moment of the day forever.”

On someone she finds sexy: “I think Ellen [DeGeneres] is sexy. Maybe it’s the way she gives off the impression that she’s anti-’the business’ even though she’s engaging in it. And humor is always sexy.”

On reading Cosmo: “I remember I used to think it was a big deal, when I was like 15, 16, and I knew that Cosmo was something my mom probably didn’t want me to read, and so it was exciting to get a hold of it because you felt like you were getting a glimpse behind what it was to be a woman; they’re letting you in on womanly secrets.”

The interview isn’t anything special, but we usually don’t see mind-blowing revelations in Cosmo. The whole “don’t try so hard” is kind of funny because Megan used to try so hard to sound like a sexy rebel in her interviews. Remember all those Maxim shoots where she shot water out of her mouth and pushed her girls together? Yeah. I’m glad she’s not trying so hard anymore. She looks much better in a shoot like this. I’m not crazy about the cover outfit at all, but Megan looks lovely in the rest of the editorial.

    So, tons of plastic surgery isn’t trying hard? I really like her but come on! lol!

  2. Hannah says:

    Hahaha! Oh Megan, you little rascal!

  3. vilebody says:

    Yet she finds no problem running back to Michael Bay when the paychecks stop coming.

    • qwerty says:

      And feels the need to pose like she;s on GQ’s cover when doing a shoot for a magazine read by women.

      • kri says:

        Really, Megan? I guess it’s easy then for you to just speed-dial that PS who screwed up your face and made you look like KK’s stunt double. I cannot stand this airbag.

    • Lydia says:

      Yep. You know she grovelled to him.

  4. Jaderu says:

    I’m basically indifferent on Megan but I can guarantee that Cosmo is not the expert on “what it is to be a woman”.

    • Amelia says:

      Cosmo is f’ing toxic.
      I wish I had realised that when I was 17.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      Yes, yes, yes. I read an article recently on advice for cheating. The writer pretty much said suck it up because you’ll never find a man that won’t cheat. How this magazine is still sold is beyond me. Even worse, girls that take it serious.

  5. Dotty says:

    Practice what you preach, honey!
    Bless her heart.

  6. Candy Love says:

    She can try just a little bit harder. In the 3rd picture it looks like she trying to be “sexy” but it falls flat and in picture 2 she just looks bored.

  7. Altariel says:

    She’s crazy pretty. But she’s still talking…..she should know better by now, lol

  8. QQ says:

    She should take heed herself, what with theb4th tupperware incarnation of her face and all

  9. Hazel says:

    Says a woman who is as plastic as Barbie.

  10. amanda says:

    shes wearing the same damn suit that Hudson just wore on a cover.

    come on, with all the designers, how are people wearing the same stuff around the same time. boring!

    • Mebee says:

      Not just that, but it’s one of the fugliest suits I’ve ever seen. Looks like the bottoms are designed to fit nicely over Depends.

  11. Abbott says:

    I have a soft spot for her. She’s pretty funny but is aware of her capabilities. She’s never really over reached like the Jessica Biels of Hollywood.

  12. Shelley says:

    I actually like Megan for some reason, but c’mon now….this coming from a woman who has completely changed her face (which was also perfectly gorgeous before).

  13. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    This style is a nice change from the thong. No waxing required. I wonder if Brian prefers Bush to Bare.

  14. Liz says:

    Her face doesn’t look as weird as it normally does. I hope she’s laying off all the cosmetic procedures. Megan looks so much better and sexier than Kate. What a big difference! On Kate, the bottoms looked weird but on Meg they look cute and makes me want to go out and try them on.

  15. Nikki says:

    Well, I guess it’s true that if you look like Megan Fox you don’t need to try hard, but some of us have to put in a bit of effort…

  16. Racer says:

    I get a little hot under the collar when I see Ellen dance

  17. RobN says:

    The subscription to Cosmo did feel like a “becoming a woman” moment at 15 or 16. Didn’t take long to realize it was mostly crap, but it did make me feel pretty grown-up for awhile.

    I kind of like her now that she’s relaxed a little and Hollywood is done trying to make her a big deal.

  18. The Original Mia says:

    This is rich coming from the woman who tried to become Angelina Jolie. Have a seat, dear.

  19. Josefa says:

    Eh, I guess nobody’s perfect. I felt Megan was going into the right direction until she said Cosmo describes “what’s it like to be a woman”. It never ceases to amaze me how some women truly think of that as a feminist publication simply because they give tips on how to orgasm. No, really, that’s literally their argument.

    But I still think she’s improved. Maybe she says women shouldn’t try so hard because she’s been there and now noticed how ridiculous she was before. And if that’s the case she’s not being a hypocrite – she just grew up.

  20. Emily C. says:

    “Women don’t have to be desperate and try so hard. Allow yourself to be strong and powerful and men will be crawling on their hands and knees.”

    So she negated all of Cosmo in a Cosmo interview. HAH! I approve.

    Also, she’s completely correct.

  21. SnarkGirl says:

    Plastic pot? Meet plastic kettle.

  22. Michele says:

    Says the queen of posing in her underwear and bending over motorcycles and/or naked in movie scenes. What a derp.
