With her jet-black hair, thick red lips, sexy attitude and uncensored mouth its hard not to think of Megan Fox as the emerging Angelina Jolie, but the 23-year-old “Transformers” starlet has had enough with constantly being compared to the actress/activist.
“I think its cause she has tattoos really, I think a lack of creativity on the media’s part,” Fox said. “I am a brunette with tattoos, I curse and I have made mention of sex before. I joked about it which people find outrageous so they want to constantly compare that to her.
You know Shia is the new Tom Hanks, Rhianna is the newBeyonce. Everybody is the new somebody although none of us are any of those people so you just walk around with it you live with it.”
However Fox isn’t the only one quick to diss the comparison, Jolie’s own father Jon Voight agrees that the two really aren’t alike.
“Megan is herself and Angelina is herself. No one is comparable; everyone in the world is unique,” Voight told Tarts at the recent “Transformers” premiere in Los Angeles. “That’s the great thing about it, but of course they’re two very beautiful women.”
But it turns out that “Jennifer’s Body” writer Diablo Cody may have played a prominent role in contributing to Fox’s self-proclaimed filthy mouth.
“She (Cody) has told me some of the dirtiest jokes I’ve ever heard in my entire life,” Fox told Tarts over the weekend at the Comic Con Festival in San Diego.
But how did the world’s hottest woman feel about being mutated into a zombie for the role?
“Going through hours of zombie makeup wasn’t necessarily hard it was just so bizarre because I’m so used to being glamorized on a Michael Bay set to the point where you don’t feel beautiful anymore because you’re like a mannequin,” she added. “So being made into a zombie was really bizarre and some of the prosthetics were very laborious but it was so interesting.”
Horrors fans talking with horror fans. That was the vibe I got when 20th Century Fox invited ShockTillYouDrop.com to sit in on a press conference and footage preview for Jennifer’s Body, the horror-comedy starring Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried. In attendance was Fox, director Karyn Kusama, writer Diablo Cody and producer Jason Reitman. All wielded a sense of humor and a love of the genre.
Fox, in the film, plays a high school student whose body becomes a vessel for seduction and destruction when she is possessed by a boy-eating demon. You’ll find photos from the press conference and description of the footage we saw here.
Without further adieu, here’s the conference…
Question: Megan, how freeing was it for you to play a character like this?
Megan Fox: Well, I think what I loved about the movie is how unapologetic and how completely inappropriate it is at all times. That was my favorite part about the script and the character. It’s fun to be able to say the shit [my character] gets to say and get away with it. People find it charming.
Question: Talk about the challenges of creating an original horror film in today’s market of sequels, reboots and remakes?
Diablo Cody: For me, I was simultaneously trying to pay tribute to some of the conventions that we’ve already seen in horror, yet at the same time try and turn them on their ear. It’s truly a post-modern thriller in that, on one hand, I grew up watching these ’80s genre movies – like The Lost Boys – and I wanted to honor that. But at the same time I had never seen this particular sub-genre done with girls and I tried to do a little of both. Continue reading SDCC Press Conference: Jennifer’s Body
Guess you can count out the sex tape out for Josh Brolin too, then.
The star of the upcoming flick Jonah Hex said his sex scene with brunette stunner Megan Fox was quite awkard.
In the movie, Brolin plays gun-slinging Jonah Hex, who has to wear a prosthetic face. Each morning, he spent three hours every day having his mouth pulled back and stuck with gaffer tape for the prosthetics and a mouthpiece to be fitted.
Megan, on the other hand, plays a hot hooker named Leila who falls in love with the masked man. However, Brolin says, “It was tough to figure out how to kiss with that thing on.”
And their love scenes were even more difficult. “To be honest, it was uncomfortable; those scenes are uncomfortable,” he said. “It was especially uncomfortable because I had this thing on my face.”
Quit complaining, Josh! It’s Megan Fox, for crying out loud.
I have uploaded a set of some old new candids & photoshoots of Megan taken by Chris Matula back in year 2001 & She went to Ken Paves’ salon for two hours to have her hair done in preparation for the Oscar on February 20, 2009.
Megan Fox felt naked playing a snarky, demonic sexpot. For once, she had no Transformers to hide behind.
“There are no robots to distract you from whatever performance I do give,” she says. “So if it’s terrible, you’re going to f—ing know it’s really terrible. So that of course is intimidating.”
Fox intimidated? Please. Holding court with journalists to chat up September’s post-modern frightfest Jennifer’s Body, the 23-year-old is both provocateur and self-aware siren, eager to send up her image as sex-on-a-stick. For instance, ask her how racy the movie is and she’ll tell you.
“I think it’s a very sexy movie. Oh, you better put on your f—ing sexy shoes for this movie!” she says. “I wasn’t really sure what I was doing. I was just trying to have fun with it. I sort of felt like I was being able to make fun of my own image — as to how some people might perceive Megan Fox to be. Continue reading Fox shows her Body
Here is the video of Megan at ‘Jonah Hex’ Comic Con Convention, She was being asked to film for a sex tape by a fan. hHe is utterly rude. Aww poor Megan
“My question is for Megan,” the man said. “I have a Sony HVR (video camera). It’s not a true HD, but it gives a pretty good image. Anyway, my question is: I just graduated film school and I’m trying to help my career. I was wondering if you’d be interested in some kind of, like, celebrity sex tape?”
