Megan Fox: People who just think I’m a pretty face are brainwashed ‘plebeians’


Truly, one of my favorite little facts about Megan Fox is that she is unapologetically crazy when it comes to alien conspiracies and any kind of “what were ancient people really doing?” conspiracies. Years ago, she said her favorite show was the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens, which is basically a show about how all of these historical mysteries can be explained by saying “aliens did it.” The flood? Aliens. Machu Picchu? Aliens. Jesus Christ? Alien. Adolf Hitler? He knew about aliens. Ancient Aliens is a highly entertaining show, but Megan Fox thinks all of those crazy conspiracies are absolutely 100% true. And soon she might give up her acting career to investigate all of that stuff full time. Megan gave an interview to the Los Angeles Times about that and a lot more. Some highlights:

As a kid, she knew she was going to be an actress: “Sometimes I just know things. I accidentally tap into stuff sometimes. I used to do it as a kid, and I do it as an adult. I crossed over and saw a future string.” [“Future string” as in string theory.]

She’s intellectual, people: “I don’t think acting is my ultimate passion. I have other skill sets and gifts that are much, much stronger that I am obligated to exercise and use. I’m really more intellectually minded. I’ve always been into alternative history, antiquities, archaeology. I’ve always been really consumed by these deep mysteries that exist on our planet that can’t be explained today by science. They eat away at me.”

The Great Pyramid of Giza: She and costar Shia LaBeouf were given a tour of the Great Pyramid of Giza by the Ministry of Antiquities and someone “high-ranking in that field — I will not say who” told the actors that the pyramid was never actually a tomb. “They presume they may have been some type of energy plant at some point. The sarcophagus that is in the Great Pyramid was put there by the government for tourism. And that sparked in me an interest in really exposing this sort of thing, because I realized I have access to things I shouldn’t have access to because of what I do for a living.”

Whether she would be interested in working for The History Channel: “It might be something like that. If I ended up working for Vice, that would be a dream. I don’t know how that could ever work, but I do have a little bit of a journalistic streak and I’m also reckless enough to do well in that field, I think.”

Her public meltdown in 2009: She says she thought she was “Joan of Arc, and it was my job to pick up the sword and defend anyone that I felt like was being treated in an unjust manner. There were moments where I could have acquiesced and been more respectful, and I wasn’t.”

People make fun of her for reading books: “You know how women that are always cast in James Bond movies are pinups but their job in the movies is always being a marine biologist or neuroscientist? I think people react to me that way. Like, ‘Right, she’s studying neurobiology.’ But I am really interested in that.”

Whether she’s bothered by her pin-up fame: “Resistance is futile, at this point… I’m not going to keep fighting the image that exists. I think people, in general, are plebeians that are brainwashed by the type of media that they expose themselves to. … People anticipate a shallowness [from me]. They anticipate a self-centeredness and a lack of self-awareness. It doesn’t … matter what I say, or how eloquent a speaker I may be, or how positive my intentions may be. I’m going to be made into what people desire me to be. At this moment, they might desire to exalt me onto a pedestal. But the next? You’re a human sacrifice. The control is not in my hands.”

[From The LA Times]

“….People, in general, are plebeians that are brainwashed by the type of media that they expose themselves to…” Whether or not you agree with her core point – that you are what you read – can we all agree that no one should say “plebeians” in this day and age? I mean, we mock Gwyneth Paltrow for her elitism, but she’s never actually SAID “plebeian” about the common folk who are so obviously beneath her. As for the Great Pyramid being some kind of ancient nuclear plant which was probably built by aliens and only Vice Reporter Megan Fox can get to the bottom of it… sure. If someone wanted to hire her to do a conspiracy theorist TV show, I would probably watch it, actually.

    In the bottom pic with her arms crossed, Megan is not even a “pretty face” anymore. I say this as an alien-denying plebeian, of course.

    • Tate says:

      Another idiot that took her very pretty face and morphed it into the alien look. 😳

    • Amanda G says:

      That’s exactly what I thought. Botox and fillers have distroyed her once pretty face.

    • mary simon says:

      Seriously – that was my first thought. Not a naturally pretty face anymore. Now she’s just another Hollywood mask face.

      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        Honestly, I never had an issue with Megan, and I happen to think she is very pretty. However, if you do not want to be type cast as a sexy bombshell, then don’t make yourself into one, it is simple as that.

        As pretty as she is, the work that she has done to her face over the years is obvious. If you don’t want to be known as “just a pretty face,” then don’t fix your facial flaws or wear colored contacts, etc.

        So, I am not sure whether this speaks to her lack of intelligence or just proves she is a bit of a hypocrite.

  2. Bettyrose says:

    OMG thank you for this gift on a lovely Sunday morning. I’ve wasted too long feeling sad for Megan, her weird marriage to BAG, and wondering how long she can ride the wave of teen boy fantasy girl. Now I can’t wait for her history channel alien series.

    • Kitten says:

      She’s insufferable.

      A plebeian

      • Chewbacca says:

        She seems to be one of those people who will use a word like plebeian all the time because they think it’s a smart person’s word. If you are smart, you don’t have to announce it in an interview. If you’re REALLY smart, you know that the best way to get people to automatically call you stupid is to insult them and their intelligence.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        “I’ve always been into…” sounds to me like the hallmark statement of a vapid and superficial person who actually lacks the faculties to focus on and truly learn about anything. Bubblehead.

    • minime says:

      She’s really smart, she reads books and stuff!! What do we know?? We are all just idiot plebeians…Some might have actually studied history or neurobiology or journalism but she has a “feeling”, she will expose the truth people! Bless her heart…I hope Hollywood keeps giving her work because otherwise I don’t know where she might earn her money.

    • Lucinda says:

      When my daughter was 8 she used to watch Ancient Aliens because she thought it was so funny. I remember her telling me, “mom, people actually believe this stuff????” But ok, I’m just a plebian and so is my daughter.

      • Rayya kirt says:

        If the supernatural isn’t real explain to me the success of one Michael Bey

      • Annetommy says:

        Ancient Aliens is great. I love the way that they put forward their outlandish theories with “could it be that….?”. No. “Is it possible that…?”. Nope. “Perhaps…?”. Never.

      • mary s says:

        LOL at *ancient* aliens. They were the senior citizens of the aliens, retired and with nothing better to do than fly over to some random planet and wreak havoc.

  3. cr says:

    Bless her heart. She’s not an idiot, but not as bright as she thinks she is, either. Perhaps she should learn critical thinking skills before reading all those conspiracy theories?

    • my3cents says:

      Wow. Yes. She’s really giving Jaden and Willow a run for their money.

      • olcranky says:

        as I read this, I was wondering if she’s joined CO$ and now thinks she’s intellectually superior

      • cr says:

        I know people in real life like this, they read a lot, but they don’t know how to learn: they don’t critically think, or know how to learn, how to put together the info, along with their own thoughts, and come up with something coherent. What they do now, it’s regurgitation.

    • Starkiller says:

      From what little I know of her, she IS smart, in comparison to most of Hollywood. She probably feels like (and is) a genius at any industry functions she attends.

  4. Reale says:

    I like Megan Fox.

    • kai says:

      I like her, too. She’s entertaining.

    • Trillion says:

      I believe I just started liking her.

      • SJO says:

        We are all a bit clueless in our own way I guess. I think Goopy is 1000 times more insufferable than this chick. And you could argue with her plebeian theory, but the rise of Donald Trump sort of backs her up at this point.
        And I like the word plebeian.
        Its now going to be the new “I’m educated check out my cool vocabulary” word of the day.
        Remember the rise of the word plethora?

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        And how about of “paradigm?” Good god.

    • ab says:

      I do too, I’ve always liked her. I’ve never thought she was dumb, she seemed to have a snarky/sarcastic streak in the early days and said things that didn’t come across well in print. she seems pretty harmless in general.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Same here. By all reports she’s a loving mom with a great sense of humor. And she’s always good for a quote. Sure, I think her theories are out there but ya know, you do you Megan.

  5. roxane says:

    She kind of look like alien now, so it make sense.

  6. Sixer says:

    I might buy a ray gun (alien origin), shrink her, and put her on my mantelpiece for use whenever I am bored.

    How can anyone not love this on a rainy Sunday?! I was thinking, “Blimey, she’s getting The Celestine Prophecy and Stargate SG-1 confused,” but then she went all Star Trek with the resistance is futile thing. It’s like a mixed metaphor but with aliens and conspiracies instead of metaphors. Or something.

    • kri says:

      Sixer-ray guns melt plastic. Unless her new face is made out of Shrinky Dink material. Then you are in luck.

    • frisbee says:

      I thought ‘resistance is futile’ was Dr Who – Daleks? Still, it’s Sunday, it’s a lovely day and I’m procrastinating about mowing the lawn….

    • Div says:

      I kind of love that she’s unabashedly crazy. So many of the celebs seem to fall into the “I’m so normal,” “I’m a hippie,” or “I’m so artsy” camps…..It seems like there are very few celebrity “characters” left nowadays (at least in the states). She probably thinks Star Trek is real and believes in the illuminati. It sounds like she thinks alternative history is a real field of study.

    • ls_boston says:

      Stargate! That’s the one! Good memory!

      Anyhow, i rather think this noble patrician lady has had the wool pulled over her eyes by a plebeian “someone high-ranking in that field ” with a sense of humour who thought they’d trot out a movie scenario to plant a nonsense truth into her head and watch her make an ass of herself in public.

      This is the best laugh I’ve had all year. Dr. Fox’s alternative energy designs to the front of the house please! I’d love to have her meet Brian Cox. It would be cold fusion in a bottle.

      • ClaireB says:

        ” I’d love to have her meet Brian Cox. It would be cold fusion in a bottle.”

        I can’t even…. What would he do? I want this on film!

    • I Choose Me says:

      It’s like a mixed metaphor but with aliens and conspiracies instead of metaphors. Or something.

      But those are the best kinds. :D

  7. Luna says:

    Am I not giving her enough credit for thinking she doesn’t know what the word actually means? My first thought was, “You’re not using that right”.

    • Kitten says:

      Same. I think in the context of her comment, “minions” or “followers” would have been more appropriate. “Plebeians” is usually used to emphasize class differences or as a way of saying someone is culturally/intellectually inferior.

      But don’t tell Megan because she’s a beauty with a brain, y’all!

    • Lucrezia says:

      Yeah, I do not think it means what she thinks it means.

      Hey – if she can quote Star Trek, I can [mis]quote The Princess Bride!

    • Livvers says:

      Maybe the word she was looking for was “Philistines”? But in the context of her quotation, if she meant to use that word, she would be implicitly “exalting” herself.

      Poor Megan, on her lonely pedal stool.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Thank you!

  8. Ellen says:

    Erm… What pretty face? Unless we’re talking 10 years ago. Aliens, must be aliens

  9. pretty says:

    her face intrigues me so much. i’m just googling ‘megan fox 2005′ and ‘megan fox 2016′ and watching these images back and forth with two browser taps and it’s so interesting how her face has transformed… what the HECK did she do to her eyes…? it’s not a conventional eye-lift that Ariana Grande, Kylie Jenner, Renne Gelleger etc got… she made her eyes smaller by making it cat-like and squinty. i can’t even describe it. so unfortunate. she was pretty in a generic way and after a moderate plastic surgery, she was beautiful during the Transformer phase.. and now … she ruined it.

    • Mltpsych says:

      She as put so much filler in her upper cheeks that it caused her eyes to be more squinty

  10. Cheyenne says:

    She’s trying too hard to be seen as an intellectual. Watching the History Channel doesn’t mean you’re an intellectual. Hate to break it to you.

    • Patricia says:

      In fact most historians take issue with the History Channel because it’s mostly sensationalized BS theories presented as solid truth.
      It’s almost insulting that she thinks she can circumnavigate the educational part of becoming a historian/archeologist and just get there by watching crap TV. It’s almost insulting… but at the end of the day it’s just funny.

      • Alarmjaguar says:

        As an historian, I can absolutely confirm this. Also, I had the same thought about the insult to professionals who have spent years learning to become archeologists by saying ‘we don’t know why these things exist’ when, in fact, we do know. Blargh

  11. spurc says:

    Idk about you guys, but anytime someone feels the need to tell me how incredibly intelligent and extremely deep they are, just in case I missed it, I always believe them!

  12. Chetta B. says:

    What we think is that you were far prettier before you had so much surgery and botox that emotions don’t even register on your face anymore because you can barely move it. And that yes, your head is largely air. And that you’re married to a loser who thinks making babies can ensure a meal ticket.

  13. Patricia says:

    I love Alien theories as an entertainment. I’m also a historian. Any person with a modicum of awareness knows that the Ancient Aliens shows are absolute pseudo-science that follow no accepted method of historical inquiry and make unbelievable leaps of logic to draw their pre-decided conclusion.

    I watch them to have a laugh here and there when I’m sick or something. It’s hysterical that she thinks that those shows have any educational, historical merit.

  14. Jellybean says:

    On a live star gazing program, the UK’s best known Physicist, Professor Brian Cox, was asked by a caller to comment on the moon landing conspiracy. He said anyone who believed in that rubbish should just turn over and watch something else, he wasn’t going to waste anytime on it. I feel exactly the same.

    • Sixer says:

      Brian is not a fan of woo woo, is he?!

    • Bettyrose says:

      Just like a plebe to not have time for science according to Megan Fox. Jelly bean only you can choose to better yourself. ;-)

    • ClaireB says:

      Brian Cox is my bestest TV boyfriend. I said it above and I’ll say it again: I want him meeting Megan Fox on film because I want to see his face when she spouts her theories about the pyramids being energy plants, etc…

    • Sixer says:

      Just for you gals, I share with you a classic Prof Cox Twitter update :

      “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – if you don’t think Apollo 11 landed on Moon you are a colossal nob end & should get a new brain”

      The best bit about it is the number of replies correcting his swearing spelling! (Dear Americans: a nob is a head. A knob is a trousersnake).

  15. Carmen says:

    Who’s she?

  16. Rosie says:

    Her choice of words is unfortunate but I get her general point. People often believe everything in the media and do not use their own common sense. Look how people are believing everything that the media is reporting on the Drop/ Heard case. I think she is intelligent but more importantly she wants to learn more. She knows there’s more to life than Hollywood.

    • Dingding says:

      True. And her choice of words is a very clear indicator how much education dear Mrs. Fox is lacking.

  17. Ann says:

    Well, it’s not like it’s hard to get a Ph.D. in botox, Megan.

    • Dingding says:

      B.A. not in acting and not in theatre studies and not in drama
      M.A. in plastic surgery
      Ph.D. in botox

      What will her habilitation treatise be about?

  18. Nancy says:

    Oh come on Meggie, you’ve been with David Silver for years now. How hot do you think we think you really are. Seriously.

  19. sienna says:

    I love how every celeb says they KNEW they were going to grow up to be famous.

    I think everyone at some point in their childhood thought they would grow up to be famous and want some sort of sporting/entertainment career. Not very many 6 year olds think “I’m going to grow up to be an actuary”.

    The difference is they pursued it successfully while the majority of us made very different life choices later.

    That’s not precognition!!

  20. KellzBellz says:

    She’s amusing, but….

    If acting is not her passion and she is so passionate about intellectual pursuits, then why not leave Hollywood to go to college? Why not use her immense wealth to get an advanced degree and then work in a intellectual field?

    Oh yeah, right: she’s full of shit.

  21. Abbicci says:

    “….People, in general, are plebeians that are brainwashed by the type of media that they expose themselves to…”

    Like Ancient Aliens for example.

  22. Dingding says:

    Your choice of words confirms the people’s opinion!

  23. Nikki says:

    Reading what she says pales in comparison to hearing it, she’s so serious & her tone is lecturing as well as condescending like we couldn’t possibly understand. When she was on Jimmy Kimmel I thought she’s gotta be getting that he was mocking everything she was saying, but there was no comprehension and you could tell his joke’s were going right over her head. She reminds me of that Damon Wayans character Oswald Bates, the prison inmate who tried to be an articulate and eloquent speaker, but in actuality he had no idea what he was saying.

  24. HeyThere! says:

    Why is she obsessed with talking about how smart she is?! Who is she trying to convince, us or herself?! I read nonstop and have a few different college degrees but I don’t go around trying to convince people how smart I am. Being smart is relative. In some circles, I’m a borderline rocket scientist. In others I’m the village idiot. Who cares?! Everyone feel bad for the former pretty face(pre surgery) because she’s soooooo smart too.

  25. Bridget says:

    I love how many celebrities tell us how smart they are and how much they love to learn, but heaven forbid they actually go to school. Megan started acting as a teenager, does she even have a high school education?

  26. Boo says:

    I’m an alien. Its true

  27. isabelle says:

    I like Megan because she speaks her mind and she is just is kinda of weird. Loved her in Jennifer’s body she did the black comedy well but she seems lost is the land of Hollywood. If you are casted because of being the hot pretty it girl unfortunately it won’t last long.

  28. Teel says:

    I have a very good friend who is extremely intelligent (a specialist physician/researcher), and after her daughter was born, she had a psychotic break due to a hormone/chemical imbalance, and is now on bipolar medication. She’s settled now, but she had a lot of crazy ideas given her hard science background (negative thoughts cause cancer) before she was diagnosed and put on meds. She told me that after the baby was born, she’d be awake for days writing down all her brilliant ideas in a notebook, and couldn’t keep up with them all. Although I don’t think MF is remotely as intelligent as my friend, this seems to sort of smack of the same thing. Maybe she has a chemical imbalance due to having several cases of the babies so quickly.

  29. Jayna says:

    All of those injectables in her face have gone to her brain and are stuck to her brain cells like goo.

  30. Rayya kirt says:

    I am pretty interested in the unknown, the science behind energy, potential other forms of life etc…I’ve personally witnessed, and not alone, many things that logic alone could not explain. Many people tend to fear what is not tangible or within their comfort and reasoning. I tend to remain open. Not foolish, but aware and given to any possibility in this vast Universe as well as our untapped innerselves. I could not begin to detail the things I’ve experienced. It seems that Fox, however, although showcasing her intellect and openmind, is rather coming off on the defensive side that only she , herself, is promoting. For her to truly own her words and esteem, she need not so mightily fight to convince the common Plebs about how her aesthetically pleasing face forced the populace to misunderstand the depths of her considerable genius. She essentially strung together as many ten cent words that she could to drive us home in her brain mobile before dropping us off at our average thinkers street. We all get the pleasure of being meshed into one, us who are not a Megan. Just like she thinks us non- Megans lump pretty faces into dumb. Not so open-minded there. Keep on reading, hone the other talents, fight crime with Turtles every year for all I care. Wish ya all the best. Just one superficial request, however: please stop flaring your nostrils. It’s even when you’re resting. In a parallel Universe, my son thinks you’re a Tyranasauras.

    • Ani May says:

      You write so eloquently. I would also love to know more about these things you have witnessed. I think the idea of unexplainable phenomena frightens most of us, and it is our instinct to be sceptics…until we are made witness to something that reason and logic can’t explain.

  31. Naddie says:

    I think I’d like to have a chat with her.

  32. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    I had never seen MF in anything until New Girl. I just watched her on Conan too. She is much more intelligent-sounding than I imagined, and she has a dry, sarcastic sense of humor. AND she was owning her crazy $hit too! They were making fun of it, and she didn’t bring up aliens or use the word “plebeian” but they did a little skit on her chakra beliefs, intuition, etc. Nothing as interesting as pyramids & aliens.

    Oh lord, she does sound like she might be praying to Xenu & LRH now. Eek!

    She HAS jacked up her face.
