Megan Fox Donates Music Video Fee To Charity

Megan Fox Donates Music Video Fee To Charity

Eminem will premiere his “Love The Way You Lie” video featuring Rihanna tomorrow (August 5) @ 9PM ET/PT. Check back then to watch it on JustJared.com!

The Joseph Kahn-directed video features Megan Fox (Transformers) and Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of the Rings, Lost) playing a couple going through the extremes of an abusive relationship.

Joseph and I worked pretty closely together to make sure we got this right,” commented Eminem. “Trying to make this tough subject work visually is a challenge. It was great to have Rihanna, Megan and Dominic on board for this … .they really brought it and made this video super-powerful.”

Megan donated her fee for her video appearance to Sojourn Services, a shelter that provides abused women and their children a safe space to regroup, rebuild, and reestablish their self-esteem and lives. Way to go, Megan!

    Aw thats really nice of her:) Megan is such a good hearted person!

    You would think Rihanna would donate some of her many millions to charity considering shes the one that actually went through an abusive realationship!

    I like how low-key Megan is becoming, just look at her private wedding vs all the comments she made last year. I think her not in T3 was also a smart move. Hopefully, she’ll grow into a more serious actress and not just a sex symbol. So far, she’s playing the right moves.

    @Maria: Her I don’t give a crap bad attitude is exactly the thing that will keep her from becoming a serious actress. She can’t play the privacy seeking reclusive artist because she hasn’t shown that she can act. The only reputation she is getting is for being difficult. If she wants to make it she’s going to learn how to play the game. She’s not talented enough to get around it. Just because she copies Jolie doesn’t mean she is Jolie.

    Agreed. It’s good to see Megan doing reasonable things and keeping a low profile…. but once she gets in an interview she starts shooting her mouth off. Before, she just said bs of her own accord, now she’s toned it down to only interviews.

    I find it great that she’s taking on more serious-ish roles now… but she’s still horrible at acting. You can’t go from terrible at acting to good just because you made a good role choice. All of the today’s top leading women actresses (meryl streep, julia roberts, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon) have made crap, for fun movies (except for meryl… also a masterpiece) but they’ve all gotten rave reviews for movies in their youth (which megan hasn’t).

    Those women can act. Megan can’t. She’s no Jolie, but good to see her trying to emulate a good, oscar winning actress.

    Wonder if there are graphic depictions of domestic violence in it. On the one hand the song is about abusive relationships and is kind of “educational,” but it’s still entertainment above all else. :/

    Here’s a vid of House/NCIS/Criminal Minds clips set to the song (for those interested).

    I think that is very commendable of her and I applaud her for taking a road toward maturity.

    Rihanna is just busy shaking her ass and wondering why her tickets are only going for $10. It’s because she’s incredibly self-absorbed. You’d expect her to really make an effort of showing what this song is really about, especially considering she experienced it first hand. When it was convenient to her album sales, she was all for it, but now…psh.

    It’s really great that she’s doing this. It’s ironic since Rihanna was once in that situation but it seems she has done nothing to neither inform, help, nor donate to any abused women charities or shelters. She’s actually done nothing…..

    @aj, you’re right! We don’t even know her, but I’m sure she hasn’t even PRIVATELY done any of that. Screw her for not taking a personal pain and making it more public than it already is. Some people just aren’t that strong or comfortable to become spokespersons for a cause. Especially something as stigmatized as domestic abuse. If anything, that @sshole Chris Brown should do the things you’ve mentioned. Keep up the victim blaming.

    This is Megan trying to get people to like her after she got so many people to dislike her for her Hitler comments.

    @Cheery: I actually know for a fact he has done 10 times the charity she has done. There is no excuse for her to have done nothing. She’s done nothing privately because why would she. Everything else is pubic. Her relationship, her body. She’s just selfish and doesn’t care.

    So Megan Fox does something good and everybody kisses her butt, because her agent intentionally leaks it to make her look good? Please!

    When will the world finally catch up and realize Megan is a super cool chick with a big heart? So many seem intent on destroying her reputation. She doesn’t play the b.s. game and is just very honest So what? I applaud that. Tough you-know-what that some don’t respect that. People need to appreciate stars like Megan who mean no harm and are simply trying to navigate some nasty waters with too many nasty sharks.

    “I actually know for a fact he has done 10 times the charity she has done.”

    @aj, You make it sound like that’s something to be proud of. He did those things because HE’S the f-cking abuser in the first place, and damn well should give back. Not to mention it’s all in an effort to rehab his image (or fulfill parole commitments). It’s not like Chris gives a sh-t about any of that stuff, yet people fawn all over him. You sound like another abuse apologist.

    Johnny Says:

    I think Megan might be trying to do damage control. She realized a lot of the things she was saying were wrong, and made her come across as an attention seeker. I hope she goes and takes some acting classes as well, and continues to learn how to be respectful and professional. Jessica Alba was just as beautiful (Still is, if not more), and never was so disrespectful to her co-workers. She doesn’t have much of a career, but at least people find her somewhat likable and don’t constantly bash her.

    “definitely this generations Angelina Jolie!”

    I’m sorry, but you should be slapped for that comment. You’re an idiot!
