Megan Fox: I'm No Jennifer Aniston

Megan Fox: I'm No Jennifer Aniston

Megan Fox is still adjusting to all of the attention she’s been receiving since Transformers. Here’s what she opened up to Entertainment Tonight about:

On her newfound fame: “I definitely feel ill-prepared. I mean, I don’t know if anyone ever sits back and goes, ‘Now is the moment that I think I should be a famous celebrity.’ I know I’m struggling with trying to figure out how to how to live in it — but I definitely feel it’s premature. I mean, I was in one movie that people have seen.”

On keeping herself grounded: “I see some people who have to deal with it on an everyday basis — I am not a Jennifer Aniston or a Britney Spears or even a Lindsay Lohan, you know? My pictures don’t sell for that kind of money. But [of] the small level that I do deal with it, it is hard and there have been times [when] people don’t want to hang out with me because they don’t want to end up on the Internet. I sometimes just turn around and go back home and don’t do anything and have to have someone go do my grocery shopping.”

On establishing herself in Hollywood: “I need to behave in a way and handle myself in a way that will cause people to take me seriously. You can be sexy and be intelligent and be taken seriously, or you can be sexy and you can be out at clubs every night and not be [taken seriously]. I haven’t gone completely insane — but it might happen soon.”

    not a fan of Megan Fox nor Jennifer Aniston..

  • savannah

    She’s not dumb. She knows what she wants out of this hollywood mess. She’s not going out, drinking, or dancing on poles like every other girl that is in her age group. I think she’s going to do some great films, some that we’ll remember – others that we’ll forget. It is what it is. She knows it, too.

  • Gambit

    What is the Megan Fox? why did you bring up Jennifer Aniston? you just fed her to wolves that are going to eat her alive with their comments.

    I like Jennifer but she has bad taste in men. At least she wears her knickers unlike the fat blob Britney Spears or the fire crotch Lindsay Lohan.

  • Verónica

    Interesting. I think that -only- this girl need to reconsider herself and then, she will be a good role model for everybody.

    I mean, she just have the attention because is sexy, but w 23 years, a emore things that she’s missing. She doesn’t have good friends on LA, sh needs friends. Someone who put her on the good way.
    I’m pretty sure that she can be a really good actress, but she needs to work this. Acting classes or whatever.

    Megan, you doesn’t need to trying to be hard, SERIOUSLY. Is for that, what the people hates you. You’re more of that.

  • Irish Girl

    She’s beautiful, but she’s way too out there right now, and it’s starting to annoy me a little. She’s saying really silly things to get publicity.

  • bijou

    Why does she always have to bring up other actresses names, like Scarlett J. Angelina and now Britney, Lindsay and Jennifer in interviews?? Can she not do an interview and not mention anybody else in Hollywood? Or she puts down others for driving a Prius or whatever. Seems like she is mentioning more famous gals to get a reaction or to get noticed. Her comments always Make her seem like bitter, unhappy, insecure and jealous of other type of person (and she sounds so uneducated).

  • Roxanne

    I can only see her in roles that calls for sexy, sluty, stripper, or mistress. I can’t see her in any other role. She’s a pretty girl, with a sex-pot look. In hollywood they come a dime a dozen…so she should enjoy it while it last.

  • Jayna

    This chick needs to get over herself and stop trying to damn hard.

  • cara

    Boy, this gal is pretty much talking her way out of future Hollywood jobs, she acts superior to others and put down so many Hollywood people, that can’t be going unnoticed. Girl can’t act her way out of a paper bag, so she should be more careful what she says and not bite every Hollywood hand.

  • kittykat

    She should learn to zip it, she always sounds stupid and full of herself. Yep, these bimbo types are a dime a dozen (she keeps saying she is intelligent yet I have not heard her say one smart thing, only put down others). She should just go straight to porn. that’s her future career path anyway, so why delay it. Her attitude and personality are fugly. She looks cheap anyway, so porn is the way to go for her.

  • F u g F a c e M a n ! s t o n

    @cara: hey, cockhopper. she gets more famous every day. every time she open’s her mouth for an interview or has a new photoshoot, she gets more famous. her name and face are everywhere – get use to her.

  • miranda

    she is beautiful and that’s it…. no brains in there

  • guest

    She cannot act. Once her movies start to bomb, she will do playboy and nudity. Nothing smart ever comes out of her mouth.

    Jennifer Aniston, Britney Spears, and Lindsey Lohan can either act or sing or both. She cannot.

    Get back to Earth!

  • Dogcatcher

    Is her skin tone naturally orange?

  • mickey

    When her quotes get pulled out of context she sounds like a tool, but when you watch her speak for herself in live interviews, she seems pretty cool. I don’t know if it’s an act or not–I don’t know how good of an actress she really is–but if she is genuine, then she actually seems down to earth and somewhat intelligent. I still thinks she wears too much make up but whatever.

  • ?

    Lol Dogcatcher #14

  • Lea

    Can’t stand Megan Fox. She just runs her mouth on and on. She wishes she was an important celebrity and not the masterbation poster hanging on pervy guys bedroom walls.
    Poor man’s Angelina Jolie.

  • SMH

    Meagan contridicted herself in this interview. She said that it is ok to be sexy and smart, yet in another interview she threw Scarlette Johanson under the bus for being both. Im confussed. This chick needs to stop with her reckless talking already. She’s a pretty girl but easily replacable…her acting is real shaky and she is so desperate to be just like Angelina Jolie its scary. Enough already.

  • AW75


  • ani

    Megan goes on and on about being pretty AND intelligent. This must come from people having told her she is smart, and the only reason they would tell her she is smart, is that they expected total stupidity from her mouth but got a seemingly smart response. This does not prove she is smart or intelligent in any way. She is obviously too stupid to realize that. All the things she has said in interviews further proves this is a pretty stupid girl with a lot of learning and growing up to do.


    I beg to differ, Meagan. You are completely insane. haha

  • lisa

    Why is she the voice of the movie. I have only heard things from her.. Nothing from the male stars much at all. She needs to stop talking. REALLY… I am so not a fan of Jennifer or Britney, but she should not be talking about other actors ect.. You never know who you may end up working with or for.. The Producers need to step in and stop this now. I don’t really want to see the movie.. I mean it seems from all the promo that she is the STAR. I thought she has a supporting role. I guess I was wrong.. Shia needs to step up.. She is stealing this film and that is not a good thing at all.

  • Alex

    Does she have useful neourons on her brain?

  • Harry

    That’s right, you’re not so why don’t you think before you speak in interviews – stupid twit.

  • DD

    Wait a second, just the other day she talked about just wanting to be looked at as “sexy”, and now she is trying to be smart. This girl has major issues!!! And really please go to a dermatologist quick to fix your pock marks, i guess that’s why she wears so much make-up.

  • Th2011

    i think that she speaks her mind and there is nothing wrong with that any other person in the world would do it and no one would say anything she is actually really smart! I like her Go Megan!

  • mertz

    good interview. read it all except for a line or two (busy) and she didn’t sh*t on anyone. good for her. she is smart. i mean she uses metaphors and allegories and all that. she has a way to go, and she can do it…if she stays humble and maybe works hard on her acting (she really needs that). goodluck megan.

  • lmao at these 3 idiots

    maybe she noticed people aren’t buying her obviously fake “i’m wild and edgy” act so she will shift to “i am intelligent and i want to be taken seriously” which isn’t working either.

  • she is a trash

    Didn’t she say ScarJo is trying so hard to be intelligent so men would take her seriously? Well, it’s her who is trying to be intelligent so people would take her seriously. lol.

    I’m not buying any of your drama trash talker.

  • gabriela

    So she bashes Scarlett Johansson for being intelligent and using every SAT word possible to make people take her seriously and says she doesn’t want to be that kind of actress, BUT NOW she’s totally contradicts herself by saying she does want people to take her seriously! I’m NOT hater but I wish she would shutup some times! She’s not smart and says alot of bullsh**t for publicity!

  • okay

    shes had to much plastic surgey like angi.

  • wendy

    Once again….LAME!!!

    Be happy you’re not Aniston, Megan.

    People just didn’t understand what she was saying about Scarlett. She was saying that when you’re pretty people EXPECT you to prove that you are smart. Apparently what she’d heard Scarlett say in interviews sounded like she was trying to PROVE she’s smart. She doesn’t think that pretty women should have to PROVE they’re smart. Which is right, but society has a weird view of good looking women in general, like you can’t be smart AND pretty. She wasn’t saying Scarlett isn’t smart, just that Megan feels there is pressure on pretty actresses to PROVE it. I don’t think that’s news. Even actress of old had that problem. Jane Mansfield was extremely intelligent, but people only wanted to see her playing dumb blond roles. No one would take her seriously when she wanted to do ventures outside of acting.

  • Chau

    Yep, she’s insane.

  • kaarin Stowell

    Whoa. How is it possible to date Brian Austin Green and be “ill-prepared” for fame?

  • Missy

    maybe she’ll get to play octomom on the lifetime movie of the day!

    pretty yes, smart, no she has about 7 minutes to go

  • M

    She is full of herself. Uninteresting and boring. Paps should stop taking her picture.

  • tams

    Oh so now she’s intelligent. I thought she said she didn’t need to prove how intelligent she is. If she was so intelligent she’d know the meaning of the word contradiction. Word of advice: Just stand and look pretty.

  • lakers fan in boston

    for once im not truly annoyed about what she said
    i usually think she shits out of her mouth
    but ehh, she didnt say anything ridiculous honestly
    i think if she wants 2 rise 2 fame, she should work on her acting, i mean she’s still pretty young
    she doesnt wanna b like jessica alba
    love yah megan!

  • LuckyL

    Of course not. She wants to be Angelina Jolie.

    And the nose job, and the boob job, and the facial fat fillers, etc. etc. etc.

    Botox/ plastic surgery beauty has a short shelf life–no worries. Those lips can last a whole year though!


    This is a made up story. Hollywood is trying hard to make this girl a star by constantly comparing her to Ms. Jolie. I challenged JustJared to do a true side by side of Ms. Jolie and this girl. When I mean a true side by side, I mean true height. Ms. Jolie is 5″8 and that little girl is about 5″4. Megan Fox can not act. This is a insult comparison to Ms. Jolie. Please JustJared for me, show a true red carpet photo to squash this story about how she’s the next Ms. Jolie. Ms. Jolie towers over this wanna be fake ass girl.

  • wow really

    thank you mickey.

    I will be the first to say that Megan is not that great of an actress, but in her interviews when you actually hear her speak you fully understand what she says. JJ seems to take every freaking quote from most of her interviews and all you dipsh*t take what she says out of context and then claim she is seeking attention. Wtf ever..I think she is a pretty cool chick and I am a girl.

    Most of you are probably jealous and quick to judge. Stick to worshiping your angie. Thanks
