The Daily Mail asks if Megan Fox is the dumbest celebrity ever

transformers 140609

The Daily Mail has a very funny and very sad story today. The title of this masterpiece of modern journalism is “Hollywood stars say the silliest things: She may be a movie beauty, but is Megan Fox the DUMBEST star ever?” As you can imagine, someone at The Mail was as flabbergasted as we were when reading some of the ridiculous interviews Megan Fox has given over the past few months. So they decided to put together all of Megan’s dumb quotes in one epically terrible article.

I have to admit, some of these quotes are new to me. Probably because Megan gives about twenty bajillion interviews a week, and she loves to talk about how beautiful, cool, edgy, gross, sexy, dark and hardcore she is, and sometimes some of her gems are lost to us. I’d like to thank The Mail for doing us this great service:

Megan Fox has amazed fans with her ignorance as she travels the world promoting her movies with red-carpet comments and magazine interviews.

She’s quite happy to discuss drugs, sex and even flatulence but take this example of her discussing her ‘Brian’ tattoo – dedicated to on/off boyfriend Brian Austin Green. She said: ‘I wouldn’t regret the tattoo if we weren’t together. I can always have a kid and name him Brian. There are options.’

MailOnline has trawled through two years of clangers to provide an insight into her ‘wisdom’.

During a recent interview with American magazine Entertainment Weekly, Megan questioned her mental health, saying: ‘I think that I’m so psychotic and so mentally ill that if I could tap into that I could do something really interesting.’

Among her more controversial comments is her call to legalise cannabis. She told British GQ: ‘I hope they legalise it and when they do I’ll be the first f***ing person in line to buy my pack of joints. People look at it like it’s this crazy, hippy, f***ed-up thing to do. And it’s not. I hope they legalise it.’

She told FHM last year: ‘I really enjoy having sex, and that’s offensive to some people. Women are the quickest to call other women slags, which is sad. I haven’t met a lot of men who’ve said, “You like having sex? What a dirty whore you are!” That’s because they wish their wives or girlfriends would have more sex with them.’

Megan makes no attempt to hide she is aware of her good looks, declaring: ‘Well, I’m clearly not ugly.’

She also told the June issue of Elle: ‘I’m just really confident sexually, and I think that sort of oozes out of my pores. It’s just there. It’s something I don’t have to turn on.’

She told Esquire: ‘I don’t want to have to be like a Scarlett Johansson, who I have nothing against, but I don’t want to have to go on talk shows and pull out every single SAT word I’ve ever learned to prove, like, “Take me seriously, I am intelligent, I can speak.”‘

Moving from Scarlett to Britney Spears, Megan admitted she felt sorry for the singer. She said: ‘I used to sit back and think, “Please, Britney Spears has the best life ever – she has everything she could ever want!” But she has one of the worst lives. Her life is a living f***ing nightmare. I have panic attacks thinking about her life.’

In the Entertainment Weekly interview, Megan criticises her performance in the first Transformers movie – despite the fact she is supposed to be promoting the sequel. She said: ‘I’m terrible in it. It’s my first real movie and it’s not honest and not realistic… Unless you’re a seasoned veteran, working with Michael Bay is not about an acting experience.’

Discussing a possible third Transformer movie, she counters: ‘I can’t s**t on this movie because it did give me a career and open all these doors for me. But I don’t want to blow smoke up people’s a*s. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting.’

Further disparaging her industry, Megan told GQ: ‘When you think about it, we actors are kind of prostitutes. 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.’

Two years ago, Megan offered up too much information she revealed her questionable hygiene habits. She told FHM: ‘I’m horrible to live with. I don’t clean. My clothes end up wherever I take them off. I forget to flush the toilet. Friends will tell me, “Megan, you totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.”‘

At the Golden Globes in January, a brutally honest Megan told a E! News reporter exactly how insecure she was sharing the red carpet with A-listers like Kate Winslet, Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz. She said: ‘I am pretty sure I am a doppelganger for Alan Alda. I’m a tranny. I’m a man. I’m so painfully insecure. I’m on the verge of vomiting now. I am so horrified that I am here, and embarrassed. I’m scared.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Jesus, who says “pinch a loaf” anymore? I haven’t heard that since Beavis and Butthead. I can already hear the Megan Fox defenders, saying that she’s a publicity machine, and if she didn’t say all of these dumb things, we wouldn’t be talking about her, which means that she’s a genius. Stop it. Stop it. She’s not a genius. She’s a very dumb girl with low self-esteem, who doesn’t have a lot to say beyond these worthless musings. The Mail missed one of Megan’s most offensive statements, though. That was the time where she talked about how she was a “butch bull dyke”. The other stuff is just dumb – but after that one, she became offensively dumb.

Here’s Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf at the German premiere of “Transformers – Revenge Of The Fallen” in Berlin on June 14th. Images thanks to .

    She have more plastic in her face than Cher.

    Unfortunately they couldn’t transplant brain cells yet.

    Which makes the Daily Mail article true.

  2. TaylorB says:

    Dagnabbit!! Why do they let her speak??

    If she didn’t open her dummy trap she would be so beautiful to everyone, but beauty fades… Wit, charm, brains, etc last and stick in your soul and make that person more lovely than Helen of Troy no matter what. I hope she learns that eventually. Poor kid.

  3. BlueSkies says:

    The dumbest maybe but the most beautiful celeb for sure.

  4. emily says:

    This shouldn’t be a question. Fox is trully endeed the dumbest celebritie ever. What’s the doubt?

  5. Annie says:

    That’s a rhetorical question right?

  6. ash says:

    Oh come on, she isn’t the dumbest celeb ever. She just doesn’t have a publicitiy filter in that noggin of hers.

  7. Mikunda says:

    She’s just young and honest about how she feels and how she sees the world. Very young. And she is def not dumb. Read between the lines. Her lines.

  8. Iggles says:

    She is a complete idiot. She looks fake and has no warmth. She is definitely has NOTHING on Angelina Jolie. There is no comparison..

  9. mxml says:

    I don’t think she is dumb. I think some of her statements make sense, like what she is saying about pot. What is so dumb about saying pot should be legalized? And what she says about women calling other women whores is true too.

    Some of those are dumb things to say, but it doesn’t make her a dumb person. We all say dumb things sometimes. Being young and in the spot light is probably hard, especially if you don’t have a lot of friends. She said she doesn’t. Give her a break.

  10. Anna says:

    As long as Paris Hilton is alive, I’m afraid Miss Fox will not be the most intelligence-challenged Hollywood girl out there.

    However, it is fun that they so blatantly ask that question. As for having to act in a Michael Bay movie, I didn’t think it was possible, but she was way worse in Transformers 2 than she was in the first installment. I didn’t think that was possible. However, neither do I think her lack of acting has anything to do with it being a Michael Bay movie, or simply with Michael Bay. Shia LaBeouf and the others did their part, she is clearly not skilled enough (or taken seriously enough by a filmmaker) to do hers. Heck, her motorcycle had more talent than Megan, and it wasn’t even an Autobot!

  11. LuLu says:

    She is 23 and thinks she knows it all. I remember those days, so I am not going to criticize her.

  12. eggy weggs says:

    She’s not the dumbest, but she might be the grossest. “Pinching a loaf” is disgusting. After reading that, I don’t want to see anymore of this one and her prison tattoos for awhile.

  13. Lenora says:


  14. Jenna says:

    I don’t think she’s the dumbest. There are many more who lack in the intelligence department.

  15. Valensi says:

    Okay, so maybe she has a great body. Her face, however – it makes me want to vomit. Even Angelina doesn’t illicit the same reaction with her willow-y, frightening hands.

  16. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    She’s so pretty. Why can’t she just be pretty and quiet. I don’t think she’s dumb exactly – just doesn’t think before speaking.

  17. viper says:

    Oh yeah she is one dumb redbeck.

  18. Trillion says:

    Anna, are you serious? She’s even worse in Transformers 2? My husband dragged me to the first one and I honestly think it’s one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen in my life. I was fuming mad in the theater that this pile of sh*t was so popular. That’s what I get for seeing anything Micheal Bay has been near…
    And oh yeah, Paris is waaaay dumber than Megan. At least Megan is gorgeous (except for her implants).

  19. Nudgie says:

    I went to the premiere in Hollywood (actually Westwood but who cares?) Monday and I have to say that as much as I think she is a brain-dead ‘starlet,’ I have to admit (in person, live and up close) she is ridiculously beautiful.

    Bitch 😉

  20. Anna says:

    Seriosly disturbed young woman she is

  21. Spawn says:

    She is the stupidest piece of shit that i saw in my live!
    Make long story short: Another stupid and miserable American actress.

  22. the original kate says:

    no, paris hilton is dumber and i have proof – quoth paris: “i could never live in europe, because i don’t speak french.”

  23. surely would says:

    Who was it who said: is sexually empowering women. There’s a stigma around feminism that’s a little bit man-hating. And I don’t promote hatred, ever. That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate women who feel that way. I’ve got a lot of gay women friends…I’m not wrong. I’m free. And if it’s wrong to be free, then I don’t want to be right. Things are changing.

    That would be Lady Gaga. Right, feminism = lesbians = hate. But no one calls her out for her offensively dumb statements (and her dumb statements are many) and it’s that weird double standard – Megan Fox gets all her quotes in an article, Lady Gaga is weird avant garde kitsch awesome that annoys people. I’m not defending Megan Fox, but I’m pretty suspicious about where all this focus on making her look really stupid comes from. If you actually read the interviews and not the excerpts, she comes off as pretty blunt and yes, occasionally over the top, but not as dumb as all that. (And same for Lady Gaga, but no one seems to be trying to make her look stupid. I guess she’s not pretty enough.)

  24. Anna says:

    Trillion: LOL! 😀 I am dead serious. I was at the press screening today and was seriously dumbstruck that they managed to have her be even dumber, skankier and strangely lifeless. Unless you consider pouting overly glossed lips, batting fake lashes – after days in the desert and a lot of action – and standing around, generally just decorating the scene, being full of life. Then, yes, she had incredible screen presence. *scoffs* I know one doesn’t have a hell of a lot to work with in a Michael Bay movie but as I said, all the others did it so much better, it’s hard not to compare Megan with her castmates and then… roll your eyes at her. And that’s the euphemism of the century. 😀

  25. No, no, no. Paris Hilton still reigns as the DUMBEST celebrity of life. I think even the cave men way back when would be scratching their heads at Paris Hilton’s comments.

  26. yellow says:

    Give me Fox over the sanctimonious, smarty-pants crap of Scar Jo anyday! I think she’s hysterical. The thing about naming her kid Brian… C’mon, that’s comic genius! The girl has a spark of life to her… so much more than the mind numbing, publicist-appproved drivel you get out of most celebs.

  27. Vibius says:

    No this is complete BS.

    Paris Hilton is the dumbest celebrity ever, and Megan Fox is the dumbest “actress” ever.

  28. nnn says:

    And this is the woman who tops the FHM poll when she probably stinks most of the time by laCk of hygien ?

    Where is the feminity, where is the grace, where is the minimum elegance attached to womanhood ? This girl is caught in the anal stage of development !

  29. Annabelle says:

    Ugh… Don’t blame her dumb quotes on her youth. I’m young too, so is natalie portman, scar jo, emma watson etc and they don’t say bullsh*t like this.

    She said not long ago, “im uber-confident & that’s why women hate me”… but she thinks she’s a tranny and she’s scared & embarrassed? yuh, that just screams confidence! *eye roll*

    And she is psychotic? B-tch doesn’t know the meaning of the word.

  30. gg says:

    Am I the only person that still has never seen her in anything but online gossip?

  31. Mandy says:

    Megan Fox is just an attention whore who tries too hard to be “different,” and she just ends up looking like a cheap rip-off of the old, weird Angelina.

    BTW, am I the only one who honestly thought Lady Gaga was a tranny? Seriously…

  32. Ned says:

    You know what? I think she is 500% more honest than anybody in Hollywood.

    What she said about the industry and the film is simply the truth.
    Transformer is not about the acting. Mant actresses are being treated like strippers and exploited (please, how many nudity is really what is “needed” due to the script and “story”).

    So, yes, some of things she has said are being said because she want the attention. But is she really the first to do that?
    Mrs. “I just had sex in the limo on my way to the Oscar” Angelina and “Jesus was a refugee” Jolie doesn’t say the smartest things ever either.

  33. Ned says:

    and please do not insult the likes of Jessica Biel, or the genius that is Jessica Alba and her heroic activism, not to mention so mant others. Please.

    At least this one has a great body (though, I’m not a huge fan of her face).

    They can’t all be Nicole Kidman, you know, and at least this one is honest about the film industry and the film that made her a star.

    Katherin Heigl did that once, and they are still crucifying her.

    We need more actors to be honest, not the same fakery that’s been going on for years.

  34. jann says:

    no, she is not, Jennifer aniston is, sorry fans, it’s the truth, the woman has a very low I.Q. level, and no, not a brangeloony fan either, now,.. 1.2.3

  35. Christina X says:

    She’s unappreciative and obnoxious.

    No, her age does not excuse her ignorance. I’m younger than Megan Fox and I have more common sense than she does…and trust me, I’ve made a lot of dumb mistakes in my life.

    Her apologists are slowly becoming more difficult to withstand in all their constant syncophancy of this nimrod.

    My dad has been using “pinch a loaf” for poop-slang forever.

  36. lisa says:

    Her ‘people’ really need to take her aside and mention the fact that if she kept crap like these comments to herself, she might not be viewed as dumb. Not rocket science here, Meg. Keep the trap shut now and again, ok?

  37. vee says:

    They either forgot about Paris Hilton or that they didn’t think she’s a celebrity anymore.

  38. MiuMiu says:

    angelina jolie is the dumbest celeb for me. have you heard an interview of her yet? that girl can’t articulate a sentence together without getting lost in space.

    too bad audience can’t get past the pillow lips and the UN Ambassador label.

  39. Lita says:

    If you read most of those comments (I am leaving out the toilet business) I think she is really funny. Hey you can’t call a Transformers movie art with a capital A. I am with yellow on this – calling her son Brian? That is GOLD.

  40. gee says:

    maybe “dumb” because shes ruining her career by saying arrogant things that turn a lot of people off. but a lot of it is just blunt honesty. she can’t hold her tongue in interviews. thats cool with me….i find her entertaining.

    “my P*ssy’s hangin out yall!”- famous quote from THE dumbest famous person alive!!

  41. Wench. says:

    OK, so perhaps I’m slow but I’ve just seen the pictures of her before surgery.

    Wowza, what a change! She was a gorgeous girl. Had I not known she had scapels picking around her face, I think I would cry in her presence – I just think she’s beautiful. But knowing she paid for it isn’t the same.

    Crush over.

  42. Yae says:

    Stupid is the new cool for America. Its what makes us a laughing-stock to the rest of the world. It reaches beyond thinking shes harmless. Its not enough to point and laugh at women like these. Our kids wonder why they aren’t rewarded monetarily for things like hard work, education, compassion, invention and brilliance.
    It is not an overstatement to say: Women like Megan Fox are part of the reason 64cents to every $1 spent of Education in America go to special needs……and less than 4cents goes to gifted/advanced children. Paris and Megan (the list goes on) are part of a serious PROBLEM.

  43. Yae says:

    Brings me to the comment Megan Fox made that another actress used big words to look smart and Megan doesnt. Imagine the HORROR of our children actually being inspired to use BIG words !! But of course Megan is “cool” because she chooses to LIMIT her vocabulary.

  44. cara says:

    I may not be a M.Fox fan, BUT the daily mail isn’t known for accurate reporting. In fact they keep calling B.Spears assistant her sister!!!!

  45. jayem says:

    I agree that she says some off the wall stuff, but so does EVERY actor (like her costar, The Beef, about his mother). I try to remember they do like a hundred interviews a day and constantly have people asking them the same bloody questions over and over again at press junkets and for every magazine ever written. Sometimes I think they just want to mix it up a little. Or be nonsensical just for fun. I love to talk and I don’t even think I could be that interesting or prolific for that long.

    Cut her a little break. She missed a few punchlines, but she seems pretty self aware and fairly harmless.

    the dumbest: hilton

    Actually it’s people like you and comments like these we’re astounded when we “hear”…
    It just lacks insight, pure and simple… Megan seems to be VERY blunt, which I guess is a bit “stupid” because a lot of people can’t cope with that. So from a PR point of view it’s kinda problematic. That aside, she seems like a bright young lady but yeah, you have to read between the lines here and there. That she’s an atheist doesn’t make her stupid, nor does the fact that she doesn’t like “white trash, hill-billy, anti-gay, super bible-beating people” (a little secret: The rest of us and by “us” I mean the people YOU SAY are laughing at ignorant Americans, don’t like them either and by the way, most of us are what you would probably consider atheist. Oh, scary 😉
    Oh, and for my post scriptum: She might not be the most well-spoken person out there but I must admit, I rather enjoy a lot of her comments, they happen to show both humour and sometimes even the insight that most of the “emily:
    June 23rd, 2009 at 2:42 pm:”This shouldn’t be a question. Fox is trully endeed the dumbest celebritie ever. What’s the doubt?” comments lack…

  49. GetReal says:

    this shit(and so called “article” in dailymail) is SAD and done by some cynical ugly pathetic looser who is just frustrated about Fox’s beauty.. The girl is honest. I guess that’s dump in sense of thinking hollywood and all that faking that goes around there, but in the REAL world, why we judge honesty?!

  50. Drizzy says:

    Do me a favor Megan Fox and don’t open your mouth .. Yes you are dumb
