Megan Fox thinks it’s ‘gross’ that actors are basically prostitutes

Megan Fox thinks her job is akin to prostitution. Just the actual “acting” side of it, she’s not even talking about the casting couch. Megan was being interviewed by GQ (UK) when she sort of went off on what seems to be her doctoral dissertation “The Actor As Prostitute” but, as you may imagine, she doesn’t have the most sophisticated or original thesis. Megan thinks it’s “gross” that she gets paid millions of dollars to do a job that consists of making out with a series of guys. But she means “gross” emotionally, not “gross” as in “it’s a gross injustice that Megan gets paid millions of dollars to make out with guys and now she’s whining about it.” Check out Showbiz Spy’s interview excerpts – and notice how Megan is once again complaining about her “wild child” image:

Megan Fox has likened herself to a prostitute.

The Transformers beauty, 23, believes all actors and actresses are like hookers.

“When you think about it, we actors are kind of prostitutes,” Fox tells the July issue of British GQ.

“We get paid to feign attraction and love. Other people are paying to watch us kissing someone, touching someone, doing things people in a normal monogamous relationship would never do with anyone who’s not their partner. It’s really kind of gross.”

“I have this sort of promiscuous image. People assume I’m really overtly sexually aggressive and that I’m this wild child. And I’m not like that at all.”

“I would rather have an image that is wild and promiscuous than to go out of my way to be proper all the time.”

“There are some guys who think I’m going to be this little cupcake who’s going to bat my eyes and be like a receptacle for them. I shut them down immediately.”

Is she really as dumb and self-absorbed as she sounds? I gave a little dry heave when she said “receptacle”. Megan Fox is a celebrity – nay, she exists and succeeds in Hollywood – because she’s done all of these semi-nude, trashy photo shoots in men’s magazines. Add to that all of those interviews about her sexualityand obscene tirades. She’s spent years cultivating the image of a sexually promiscuous “wild child” and now she’s whining about it. I’d like to think most of these actors and actresses are secret geniuses, and that’s why they got famous. Like, they’ve spent years plotting out their careers, and they’ve spent the time carefully cultivating their “image” and so they say this kind of dumb stuff for a reason. But maybe not. Maybe some people get famous despite being dumb as a box of hair.

    When will this girl just stop talking?!

  2. OMG says:

    Can the studio tell her to just STFU.. She make the dumbest statements. Everytime she opens her mouth. It is obvious that she is a very insecure woman. She just covers by quoting other celebs and making their statements her own. If the life she is leading is not fulfilling then she should shut up and do something else. Many people are losing their jobs and homes. she is making millions to pretend. Go out in the real world and come back and talk. Until then just do your job, look pretty and shut you face.

  3. Ophelia says:

    God she’s retarded. Does she really think anyone’s invested enough interest in her to form an assumption about her being a “wild child”? She was the arm candy in a dumb movie.

  4. Lori says:

    I think she is really out of touch because clearly she looked in the mirror last night and thought her hair looked good greased back like that, but in reality it looks like she does not wash her hair for red carpet events.

    Megan you like a prostitute! I will give ya that!

  5. DANMOR9 says:

    Everything she says makes her sound like a DUMBASS.

  6. truth-SF says:

    Aww Megan, shut up, get back on your knees and just suck and blow like you’ve been doing to get these movie roles.

  7. Hieronymus Grexx says:

    Nah, just YOU, Megan. Just you.

  8. Carrie says:

    Can this woman just go away!! Every time she opens her mouth she is just showing the world want a nut she is. I can’t wait until Transformers is out in theaters than we won’t have to listen to this wacko’s ramblings any longer!!

  9. fluffy says:

    Honestly, not out of bitterness or anything becuase I am happy to acknowledge a good looking woman when I see one (Scarlett, Angelina, Drew, all beautiful women) but honestly she is not attractive – at all. Her features are beyond boring, her body is no different than any other well proportioned healthy woman, she has no appeal, and then she runs off at the mouth like this. She is just gross.

  10. shadow side says:

    No, Megan, idiot, there’s a big difference between prostitutes and actors. Say, for example, that hookers actually *beep* people and actors just pretend. Most people find that difference very significant. And most actors believe their craft entails a heck of a lot more than just faking their way through love scenes. I’m thinking that Kate Winslet walks on a film set thinking about a great deal more than the couple of love scenes she might have to do.

    “I have this sort of promiscuous image. People assume I’m really overtly sexually aggressive and that I’m this wild child. And I’m not like that at all.”

    “I would rather have an image that is wild and promiscuous than to go out of my way to be proper all the time.”

    So you aren’t trying to come off as promiscious but you would rather be that than proper? Can Megan Fox win the next WTF award?

  12. Embee says:

    It’s weird but I am starting to feel sorry for her…she sounds (stupid, yes) pretty conflicted about who she is. And her face has taken on a really hard look that strips her of any uniqueness. Sad.

  13. boomchakaboom says:

    It should read: “I have CREATED this promiscuous image in the hopes that people would see me as sexually aggressive, because then they may not care that I have no discernible talent whatsoever.”

  14. Kelly says:

    You lost me at “Megan Fox thinks…”

  15. nimble minx says:

    kelly, spot on.

    this woman is so tiresome. people call her the low-rent Jolie, but (and I say this as someone who doesn’t really like Jolie) she’s not even close.

    she does have a very “hard” look to her. and to think, she paid for most of it.

  16. Bubulle says:

    Well I think she thinks actors are kind of prostitutes because she’s frustrated. I mean all she has to do is to look desirable, she’s not hired for her acting skills for sure. I doubt Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchette or Meryl Streep feel the same.

  17. cookies says:

    bitch just needs to shut her mouth . . she looks like an overpaid pornstar . . she is no actor nor will be she got as far she did by looks and judging by that pic u have up her looks are fading fast . . . but seriously actors are paid waaay to much money i think teachers , police , fire , healthcare officials should be paid more . . it really is a shame . . .

  18. whatevs says:

    It amazes me that there are people out there that think this drag queen is the epitome of hotness.

    I find her insufferable.

  19. Sauronsarmy says:

    Angelina 2.0, please shut up.

  20. ! says:

    What I find gross is when a girl tries too hard to be every guy’s wet dream. Megan Fox is the definition of trying too hard.

  21. jess says:

    she’s not hot enough to wear her hair like that

  22. Debbie says:

    She has such a hard, worn out look to be so young. She never looks clean & fresh.

  23. “Megan Fox thinks it’s ‘gross’ that actors are basically prostitutes.”

    No need to read the rest of the article – the irony in that statement alone is so palpable that the joke writes itself.

    STFU MEGAN!!!1

    ps – boomchaka = Yes!

  24. abbizmal says:

    This bitch is as dumb as a box of rocks. I don’t understand her appeal and I too can recognize a beautiful woman when I see one. She can’t act and, if not for the Transformers, would have faded away by now. I love how you guys always find the most ridic-looking pic of someone. That is one of the dumbest posers ever.

  25. Gistine says:

    Dummy has only been in one movie so far. ONE.

    LOL@ Angelina 2.0

  26. Jag says:

    She really looks bad in the photos of her looking back over her shoulder. She’s such a pretty girl; perhaps she needs to take better care of herself.

  27. the original kate says:

    “I would rather have an image that is wild and promiscuous than to go out of my way to be proper all the time.”

    yeah, because it has to be one or the other, meg-meg…women have to either be virgins or whores. god, she’s dumb.

  28. hatsumomo says:

    actually, she has been in a few “successful” movies- you don’t recognize her cause she had quite a bit of plastic surgery between them.

  29. connie says:

    cookies, while i agree about the obsene differences in pay rates, you have to take into account that movies make millions of dollars whereas police stations etc are funded through tax payer dollars and spend more than they make

  30. Lucky says:

    Excuse me, since when is “founding father’s hair” appropriate for an actress to wear to an award show????

    She looks like Benjamin Franklin!

  31. nimble minx says:

    LOL at Lucky…

    too bad Ben wore it better!

  32. ChristinaT says:

    well, you gotta give her some credit for willing to be self depreciating!

  33. SugaMama says:

    Meagan, Don’t just fire your stylist, shoot the bitch at close range.

  34. jake says:

    she’s gross, and won’t age well. she looks like a hag in this picture:

  35. viper says:

    First she was engaged like four times to Austin, then she was bi, then a lesbian, then a shemale, then wants to be taken seriously, then she calls herself a prostitude. Oh will somebody save this girl from herself PLEASE!

  36. Chicoulina says:

    Why did she do her hair that way?Doesn’t she have a mirror?I think she is very good looking,her eyebrows make a big difference to her face but the hair ruins the apperance.I didn’t see one well dressed woman celebrity at the movie awards?What happened?Are their stylists on a strike?

    Her shoes look like stripper shoes.

  37. Orangejulius says:

    She may be dumb, but she sure is beautiful…even if it is manufactured.

  38. j. ferber says:

    I would kill for her eyebrows. Secondly, here’s an offer, Megan. Let’s switch jobs. You teach, grade papers, do forensic reconstruction of essays to see what the hell the kid is talking about and get paid a pittance for your trouble (did I mention the backtalk and random attacks on your person?) I’ll do whatever it is you do for millions. After a week, let’s compare notes. But here’s the deal: we can only switch back if you agree NEVER TO TALK AGAIN. We all bitch about our jobs, but the truth is, if we did not have some affinity for some aspects of our jobs, we would not do them. I think she just likes to say the word “prostitute” for titillation.

  39. yasmin says:

    J ferber: There’s this thing called EYEBROW WEAVING. I bet that is what megan fox did, cos she never used to have eyebrows like that.

    Guuuuhh. Her. Hair. Looks. Gross.

  40. yasmin says:

    Ugh. That header pic is really gross.

    I bet she loves being a prosty.

  41. Aspen says:

    She’s like those people who have MySpace pages or Twitter accounts and publicly pretend to be ashamed of that fact so they can claim to be cool through disdain.

    It’s like women who flirt with men by saying, “Yeah, Baby, all women are bitches, but I’m not like them,” to get into some random man’s pants.

    What a tool…and for God’s sake, Woman, shampoo is cheap. Get some.

  42. lindsey says:

    megan is the brunnette version of jessica simpson only worse at least jessica doesnt compare her career to hookers. actors do have love scenes but its not real and theres more to a movie then a love scenes. megan is so stupid perhaps shes the hooker she shouldnt talk for all actors…someone hit her over the head with a can of chicken of the sea perhaps this will knock the sense into her.

  43. Christina X says:

    Who keeps letting this imbecile speak, as though she’s done something noteworthy? No, posing topless in various men’s magazines doesn’t count.

    If not for her diatribes about her sexual life and semi-nude photoshoots, I would’ve never heard of her. She’s not the girl from Transformers; she’s the girl I never liked since I first heard of her rambling about how all the other girls are so intimidated by her.

    The fact that she explicitly made this comment when she uses her image and sexuality for publicity makes her a hypocrite, and her “I’m so jaded and angry” schtick’s annoying. What the hell does she have to be so negative about? The undeserved amount she of publicity she achieves by flaunting her body? Let’s face it, she’s not a good actress by any stretch, and should be grateful that people continue to offer her movie roles…which she constantly rejects because she feels as though they aren’t good enough roles for her?

    She’s so unappreciative. There are MILLIONS of struggling young actresses out there who don’t have the opportunity that Megan Fox has because they aren’t “sexy” enough to get roles in large productions…not to mention without having the benefits of being socially placed on a pedestal just for being attractive. Professionally, socially, and just in general, she has it so much better than most people.

    If anyone in the movie industry’s a “whore”, Megan Fox is the closest to one for displaying (and thus selling) her body in an overtly sexualized manner for millions of dollars and extra exposure. Fox is biting the hand that feeds her when she blames the media for turning actors into “prostitutes”, when that’s the very thing that made her. I really hope her attitude bites her in the ass one day.

    Stop whining.

  44. katie says:

    I like that she said “WE actors”….When has she ever acted? Last time I checked strutting around and occasionally rambling out bits of dialogue isnt acting. You are a pretty little trained monkey, Megan, nothing more. Dont you dare count yourself amoung the class of Actors. You know nothing of the art.
