Men think Megan Fox is over-exposed, call for one-day media blackout

Megan Fox
It seems men may be a little fed up with Megan Fox. According to Gatecrasher, several men’s websites are calling for a “Megan Fox Media Blackout Day” because the men running or operating the sites feel she’s too overexposed. Gee, I wonder at point they realized that? After her seventh magazine cover, all to promote one movie? To give some acknowledgment to Megan, these guys are giving her credit for increased traffic and for being a huge draw at all times. I’ve noticed that on Celebitchy too – but usually the attention is negative, because Megan has said something dumb in one of the cover interviews. Men don’t notice what Megan says – they’re too busy ogling pictures of her. But that is going to come to end for one day – at least – so that these men can find and over-expose some other young starlet:

It may seem unlikely, but the men of America are sick of Megan Fox.

A dozen male-focused Web sites including AOL’s men’s lifestyle/humor site — as well as Ask Men, Just a Guy Thing and Double Viking — have sanctioned Aug. 4 as a Megan Fox media blackout day.

Why the diss? All the editors feel the starlet has become a bit too overexposed — and they’re not just talking about her fashion sense. Fox has appeared on the covers of Esquire, Empire, Maxim, GQ UK, Entertainment Weekly and Elle this year alone, plus she did heavy press for her role as Mikaela Banes in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.”

“You can have too much of a good thing,” says’s Editor-in-Chief James Bassil, who tells us, “We’re joining in the media blackout and giving our readers a one-day reprieve from the woman we’ve been drowning in all summer.”

Jokes Doug Sheckler of “She needs to do more to earn our undying praise and affection. For instance, she hasn’t even returned any of my calls this year asking for a date. What’s up with that?”

All kidding aside, most of the men do admit to still lusting after the actress, but are ready for Fox to pass the hot torch on to their other celebrity crushes. “Listen, we love Megan. She’s responsible for driving more eyeballs to our sites — just by getting photographed walking down the street in a white T-shirt — than any other celeb alive,” says Eric Rogell of But while he professes his love for the raven-haired beauty, he says he’s ready for more diverse eye candy.

“It’s time to give another young actress a shot at the attention,” he says. “We’re taking a one-day break from covering Megan’s latest nail polish color and instead promoting another ‘Next Big Thing.'”

So who is Fox’s likely replacement? “My vote is for [“The Unborn” actress] Odette Yustman,” says Rogell. “I call her ‘The Poor Man’s Megan Fox.'”

Personally, I’ve never gotten the general appeal of Megan Fox. Any attractiveness I could give her credit for is ruined when she opens her mouth. But I understand why men (specifically, young men) find her sexy. She always got her mouth open, tongue exposed, staring at the camera with a “f-ck me” look. It just seems… obvious. And like there’s nothing else there. But I guess those boys will have to do without Megan for one whole day. Gasp! What will they do?

Megan Fox is shown at Comic-Con on 7/23 and 7/24/09. Credit: PRPhotos

    When the men say that a hot female celebrity like Megan Fox is overexposed, then that is saying something. Usually the men are too dim to notice this kind of things.

  2. dudewtf says:

    I really dont think she is over-exposed. I think Paris Hilton was over-exposed & Lohan is clearly over-exposed. Everytime i turn on my TV im not hearing about Megan Fox. I honestly rarely do…

  3. nnn says:

    I don’t think she is overexposed but she is forced on people like she is the new big thing when she hasn’t shown yet that she has what it takes to be more than the flavour of du jour.

    She is no better than Alba so far and i don’t recall Alba being traded as much at her peak.

    I also get the sense that her opening her mouth spouting nonsense left and right get people on their nerves, men included which can contribute to a general feeling of tiredness…or whatever it is called in English

    she’d be a pretty girl if she washed off the pounds of makeup. she never looks like she isn’t wearing all of sephora.

    I am surprised but it’s a happy kind of surprise. i seriously believe there are far more attractive and by far more talented women out there. Im still hoping there is an aundry hephurn out there. I wanna look into a womans eyes and see REAL beauty. I am ready to see a soul again.

    @nnn: We call it DISGUST.

    Just one day?

    It’s funny how over-exposed she is, considering that in all fairness..her face isn’t that photogenic.(she takes more bad than good photos)she has awkward facial expressions (which is one of the reasons why she is always hanging her mouth open and curling her tongue out like a moron)AND as she grows and matures her facial structure seems to be morphing into a more masculine line- I don’t know – she just looks less cute than she did a few years back… and all that make-up masculinizes her more

    I HATE the way she poses. She tries waaay to hard like a porn star. Someone needs to teach her that less can be more and that elegance can be sexy too.
    She also needs a stylist and a makeup artist!
    I would love Megan if she didn’t pose so hard and say stupid things. But she does. Which makes me wonder, if she’s doing all this stuff so she will be able to “reinvent” herself later?

  10. Ana says:

    I just noticed I said “to” instead of “too.” Sorry, it really bugs me when I catch things like that.

  11. nnn says:

    LOL, thanks SolitaryAngel

  12. Spooge says:

    She looks like an old hooker and can’t act worth a crap so how about a permanent media blackout.

    Those orgasmic facial expressions are way out of line. It’s just like she is in a s*xual trance everytime she is in a professional representation, always mimicking the climaxxing uh ah state of mind. It’s disgusting.

    Only p*rn movie stars do this on the red carpets because it’s part of their character as adult movie actresses.

    Less Megan Fox, more Bridget Regan!

    Looks like she’s going for the wonder woman make up, blue eye shadow, lipstick and darker hair. Role hinting much Megan? ha.

  15. Hieronymus Grex says:

    I’m in !! She’s the nadir of the modern actress. If that’s the new standard, give me the dregs.

  16. Trippy_Dude says:

    totally over exposed. she has horrible tits, literally. they completely ruin the whole package just look at those pics of hers when shes walking on a dock for her latest movie. shes cute i guess but id settle for someone else any day. like the 90210 girls they’re all pretty hot

  17. genie says:

    I was asking myself the same question renee!

  18. gee_gee says:

    Can I get six months off from this chick? I’m exhausted.

  19. Emily says:

    I think she should quite Hollywood and just become a pornstar, she’s got the face for it.

    That said, I love her with blue eyeliner/shadow, it really suits her.

  20. 88Modesty88 says:

    She looks like a blowup doll, especially with her mouth open like that. Guess that’s why guys like her!


  21. She is hot and that’s all there is to it… For the people who think she’s over exposed just look away!!!!!
