Megan Fox has defended her comments about making marijuana legal.
The Transformers actress, who stars in Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen with Shia LaBeouf, caused controversy after her remarks about smoking cannabis in an interview with GQ magazine.
“I wouldn’t call it recreational drug use… that makes me sound like I’m going into clubs and using cocaine,” she corrected at a press conference in London, adding: “I talked about the legalisation of marijuana, which I think in the United States it should be.”
She added: “If alcohol is legal, I just think marijuana should be, that’s all.” Megan also admitted that she’s torn between being completely open or staying schtum in interviews.
like I have the best intentions when I do these interviews and when I speak the way that I do, but it’s unfortunate when journalists choose to knowingly twist the meaning of my words,” she said.
“And that discourages me from being outspoken and honest, but it’s something I want to do. I hate reading or watching bulls**t interviews, and watching these things that have been created and presented to you on television, that are fake or manufactured. I am trying not to be one of those.”
:: Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen is released on Friday June 19.
