  • I guess I see a resemblance between us two, but I want to become my own person.
  • I really enjoy having sex, and that’s offensive to some people. Women are the quickest to call other women sluts, which is sad. I haven’t met a lot of men who’ve said, “You like having sex? What a dirty whore you are!”. That’s because they wish their wives or girlfriends would have more sex with them.
  • I just had an incredible amount of empathy for her my whole life. I cry when I see her on camera.
  • People who don’t like me talk about it as though I’m trash because I have tattoos. I find that insane because it’s 2008, not the 1950s. Tattoos aren’t limited to sailors. It’s a form of art I find beautiful. I love it.
  • I didn’t get along with Lindsay Lohan on Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen, but you have to consider that we were 16-year-old girls. I haven’t seen Lindsay since then, but I imagine she’s grown and become a different person. I know I have. From what I’ve experienced, women aren’t good friends to one another. When guys want to hang out with you because your personality is badass, women immediately hate you.
  • I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody commit to a character the way that he did. He makes really outrageous choices and it’s great when everybody else on the set is making more subdued ones and he goes with it and convinces us that it’s brilliant afterwards.
  • I have the libido of a 15-year-old boy. My sex drive is so high. I’d rather have sex with Brian all the time than leave the house. He doesn’t mind.
  • Because I looked older than her, she’d be nice to my face so I would buy her cigarettes. We got away with it every time.
    Is there anything wrong with you?
  • I’m horrible to live with. I don’t clean. My clothes end up wherever I take them off. I forget to flush the toilet. Friends will tell me, “Megan, you totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.”
  • When I was 14, I thought I was the coolest kid in school because I told everyone the jokes in FHM.
  • I didn’t get along with Lindsay Lohan on Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen, but you have to consider that we were 16-year-old girls. I haven’t seen Lindsay since then, but I imagine she’s grown and become a different person. I know I have. From what I’ve experienced, women aren’t good friends to one another. When guys want to hang out with you because your personality is badass, women immediately hate you.
  • Lindsay and I weren’t the best of friends.
  • [on working with Michael Bay] Michael Bay’s name, if it’s attached to a script, you know it’s going to be a huge blockbuster released in the summer, with jets flying over at the premiere and all that kind of stuff. So, I knew it was going to be a huge movie.
  • [on George Clooney] He’s sarcastic, and he has a different girlfriend constantly. It’s considered charismatic. He’s like this James Bond, sexy dude. The older he gets, the better he gets. It’s a double standard. To be outspoken, or different at all, is a problem for women. As soon as you curse or, God forbid, make some sort of sexual reference that’s a joke, you’re labeled a party girl. They don’t do that with men, so I feel it would be a lot easier.
  • [Director Michael Bay] doesn’t like really skinny actresses. He’s been traumatized by them for some reason in the past. So I always try to put on eight to ten pounds before [filming], and I’m always the fattest I’ve ever been when making a Transformers (2007) movie.
  • [on her Marilyn Monroe tattoo] I committed to having her face on my arm for the rest of my life, so I have to be a pretty big fan.
  • I don’t want to have to go on talk shows and pull out every single Sat word I’ve ever learned, to prove, like, ‘Take me seriously, I am intelligent, I can speak.’ I don’t want to have to do that. I resent having to prove that I’m not a retard.
  • Wonder Woman is lame. She flies around in an invisible jet, but she’s not invisible. I don’t get it.
  • Olivia Wilde is so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands. She’s mesmerizing.
