Megan Fox claps back on people criticizing an unflattering Super Bowl pic

One year ago, one of the big stories coming out of the 2023 Super Bowl was Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly probably broke up.” Megan was full of social media drama and fans pieced the story together pretty quickly, that Megan and MGK had some big fight at a Super Bowl party and their engagement was off. Megan briefly acted like a single lady and even attended some Oscar parties solo, but she and MGK ended up going to couples counseling and reconciling at some point. I think the engagement is back on too.

Anyway, if I was in Megan’s place, I would have avoided the Super Bowl this year, but she did not. She went to Vegas with MGK and partied with other celebrities. Once the photos of Megan came out, people were like “WTF, she looks like a Kardashian now.” Which… is sort of true, although it’s nothing new. Megan has been open about her body dysmorphia but not so open about her cosmetic work. She’s been getting tweaked here and there for years. Any decent plastic surgeon should have told her that she didn’t need to do anything, she was already incredibly beautiful with her original face. Anyway, Megan heard people talking sh-t about her and she responded on Instagram:

Megan Fox is not letting the haters pick apart her appearance. On Valentine’s Day, Fox shared two photos of herself partying with Taylor Swift, Travis Kelce and her fiancé Machine Gun Kelly after Kelce’s team, the Kansas City Chiefs, won the Super Bowl on Feb. 11. However, before Fox shared these photos online, the group moment already started making rounds on the internet, and on X, people had a lot to say about Fox’s face.

One person wrote, “What on earth happened to Megan Fox? She looks way different than her transformer days.” Another said, “Did Megan fox get a whole new face.”

In response to the backlash, Fox shared pics from that night on Instagram and responded to the criticism in the caption.

“Oh my god guys look how different i…dont look at all,” she wrote in her Feb. 14 post. “Turns out it was just a shadowy cell phone pic of me looking like a ukrainian blowup doll. when in REALITY i look like one of those super expensive silicone real sex dolls you can only get in japan 💁🏻‍♀️.”

One Instagram user didn’t like the fact that Fox mentioned Ukranian women in her post, writing, “It’s very rude of you to speak like that about Ukrainian women, that’s how you showed yourself.”

Fox responded back and said, “@Anastasiia_klimenchuk_ dear god. that is NOT what i meant. ukrainian women are hot af and so in my imagination the blowup dolls would also be hot. let a girl make a joke for f–ks sake.”

[From Today]

“A Ukrainian blowup doll”- dafaq?? This is not the first time people have questioned Megan’s work and while that’s unfair and unkind, I have no idea why Ukrainian women are getting thrown under the bus here. Incidentally, I cannot believe Megan and MGK got this close to Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift. These are (weirdly) some of the best photos we have of Traylor from that night?? Is that why Megan posted them?

    She looks likes she’s looked for awhile to me. She’s just making faces. And yes she should have left her face alone. She’s still young and now looks a good 10 years older than she is. I don’t think a lot of these women in Hollywood realize that plastic surgery actually ages you.

    • Cee says:

      She should have stopped after her first nose job.

    • Korra says:

      Agreed. People get disingenuous about Megan Fox’s face as if the work she had done is a recent development. She likely underwent the most drastic changes to her face between 2007 and 2010. Occasionally, her fillers get more noticeable in some public appearances than others, but for the most part, agreed that she’s looked the same for quite some time.

  2. Torttu says:

    She looks just fine to me? She looks like herself.

    • Jaded says:

      Are you kidding? Google pictures of her as a teen and in her early twenties. She’s has so much plastic surgery she looks like a totally different person from her younger days.

      • sparrow says:

        Agree, Jaded. Years ago I read a site run by a plastic surgeon. First discussion was Megan Fox. His opinion was she had been imperfectly perfectly beautiful and ruined it by becoming generic. She was lovely to begin with. Anyway, her money, her choice and whatever. It’s hard to see what she used to look like. It’s a radical alteration.

  3. KS says:

    MGK and Travis are friends. I find MGK gross but Travis has called him on the phone on his podcast before.

  4. Amy Bee says:

    Her lips look painful. I’m just glad she’s stopped trying to look like Angelina Jolie.

  5. Lucy says:

    Travis knows MGK, they’re both from Cleveland and around the same age. I think he’s mentioned on the podcast seeing MGK playing at house parties as a teen? Something like that. They know each other well enough to take pics together.

    • Truthiness says:

      Yes to all that and MGK was on the podcast in the last year. He face timed in to offer Travis $1M to play on the Cleveland Browns, breakfast included.

  6. Maybe she regrets what she has had done to her face and when people make unkind comments she lashes out at them.

    • sparrow says:

      I agree, Susan. I imagine she did whatever she has done to herself step by step, with people telling her she looks great each and every time, just one more tweak etc. And now she is where she is, with no real way back.

  7. bettyrose says:

    Megan Fox was so naturally beautiful. Kim K was too, but I’ve long since stopped having any sentimental feelings about her, whereas I really root for Megan. This extreme tweaking won’t age well.

    • Another Anne says:

      Yes, I think of women like Linda Evans or Priscilla Presley who were so beautiful, and what happened to their faces due to plastic surgery.

  8. Turtledove says:

    I think it’s just really hard for an average woman to understand why someone like MF would get SO much surgery.

    Obviously, all humans are exposed to pressure about looks to varying degrees. We are all hit with the messages that we aren’t good enough in some way. Some people can ignore the messages, but we ALL see the messages. And they affect a lot of people in a big way.

    So when you see someone who was naturally beautiful that now just has that “surgically-enhanced to the point of looking like all the other surgically-enhanced people look” about them, it can be hard for say, ME, to understand. I’d be walking around naked 24/7 and smiling at everyone so damn full of myself if I looked 1/16th as good as she did pre-surgery. It is just hard for me to wrap my head around it.

    But it is her choice,

    And I don’t live in Hollywood. I’ve been judged on my looks in the same way every woman has been at some point, but the level of judgement SHE gets is a whole different thing. It’s also probably pretty hard to break out in Hollywood as “a super hot girl” because then you might feel pressure to remain forever super hot. Which is ridiculous.

    And between us Celebitches, yes, I DO think she looked better without all the surgery. But even with it, she is still outrageously gorgeous and it is ridiculous for people to be tearing her down.

    I don’t love that all these young and beautiful celebs get so much work done because I don’t like the message it sends to kids. But it is not Megan’s job to change that.

    My very first thought was that it was Kim K~

  10. Karen Van Wagon says:

    Both Megan and Taylor has had work done. But Megan over did it and looks like a zombie. Taylor looks normal.

    • bettyrose says:

      We’re entering an era where the occasional tweak is just normal, even for the average person. I’m not crazy about that, but I accept the truth of it. So that said, like nearly anything else, moderation is key.

  11. GrnieWnie says:

    My issue with her is she takes great offence when people sexualize her, yet she sexualizes herself at the same time. There’s a discussion here about how we can become complicit in our own exploitation or something to that extent, I guess, but I’m not sure if you can get offended for people presenting an image of you that…you present of yourself? Something about the logic is broken for me.

    • bettyrose says:

      You’ve so perfectly described my issue with noted feminist Emily Ratjakowski. Yes, a woman has every right to be sexual and proud of her body while still being taken seriously as someone with a brain, but when you cater so much to the male gaze and build an image on doing so, and then complain that people accuse you of catering to the male gaze, IDK. The industry is full of stunning actresses who make bank on their looks without that being the main narrative surrounding them.

      • sparrow says:

        GrnieWnie & bettyrose. You’ve said exactly what I feel at times about this issue of embracing your own objectification. It’s complicated!

  12. OnTime says:

    What has she done to herself?!!!! Couldn’t even recognise her in that pic (and I’m a visual superrecogniser; I did one of those online tests and never forget a face in real life or on screens).

    Why should she have avoided the Super Bowl?
