Megan Fox who is most known for her role as Mikaela Banes, the love interest of Shia LaBeouf’s character in the blockbuster Transformer films is a guest on LNWJF tonight.
5 Things You Did Not Know About Megan Fox (unless you read her Wikipedia page)
1. Fox began her acting career in 2001 with a supporting role as Brianna Wallace in the film Holiday in the Sun.
2. Fox then guest-starred in various television series, including What I Like About You and Two and a Half Men, and played a recurring role on Hope and Faith. In 2004, she relaunched her film career starring opposite Lindsay Lohan in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
3. Fox has spoken extensively of her time in education; that in middle school she was bullied and picked on and she ate lunch in the bathroom to avoid being “pelted with ketchup packets”. She said that the problem was not her looks, but that she had “always gotten along better with boys” and that “rubbed some people the wrong way”. Fox also said of high school that she was never popular and that “everyone hated me, and I was a total outcast, my friends were always guys, I have a very aggressive personality, and girls didn’t like me for that. I’ve had only one great girlfriend my whole life”.4. Fox has eight known tattoos, including her ex-fiancé’s name “Brian” on her lower hip and a picture of Marilyn Monroe’s face on her right forearm. Fox also has another tattoo on her right shoulder that reads, “We will all laugh at gilded butterflies” a line adapted from William Shakespeare’s play King Lear, a yin and yang tattoo on her left inner wrist, a poem on the left side of her rib cage that reads “there once was a little girl who never knew love until a boy broke her HEART,” and a Chinese word for “strength” on her neck. Fox also has a crescent moon overlapping a five pointed star on the inner aspect of her lower leg above her right ankle. This tattoo is the only known colored tattoo that Fox has.
5. She is aviophobic. She is afraid of flying. She said, “I developed that (a fear of flying) when I turned 20. All of a sudden I got really afraid to get on airplanes. I had to come up with a way to deal with it because I didn’t want to have panic attacks every time I get on a plane.”
Also, Megan Fox is hosting the season premier of SNL this week!

Hello, fellow Megan Fox fans! I’d like to ask you one thing: what do you think would be the best career move for our beloved Megan in the near future? What filmmaker should she work with that can bring out her wonderful talent and help her to prove the world that she’s something more than just a current sex symbol?
My answer is that she should go back to roots of the American filmmaking tradition and perform in the most American and arguably most purely cinematic genre of them all – the Western. And the right director for Megan would be the one who is able to recognize Megan’s inner strength as well as her femininity. In essence, the director who makes feminist Westerns.
At the moment, there is only one filmmaker I’m aware of who fits this formula, but he’s all that and much more. His name is Max Hardcore.
We, the loyal Megan Fox fans, realize that behind that beautiful face lurks a future brilliant actress. That’s why it’s so important for Megan to work with Max Hardcore at least once. Nobody brings out the hidden talents in women as well as Max does, especially when it comes to great acting!
Megan said herself that she’s interested in doing an art movie, right? Well, that’s the problem – they just don’t make the art movies like they used to in the good old days! That’s why Megan’s best bet is Max Hardcore – perhaps the only true artist remaining in today’s somewhat stale world of cinema, and, in addition to that, a great freedom fighter with deep understanding of the everyday struggles and problems of a little man!
It might seem like a harsh generalization at first, but if you think of it, Max is the only filmmaker today whose work is so layered and complex. He’s excellent at the Western genre. In fact, there are only six directors of Westerns who managed to achieve true greatness – John Ford, Anthony Mann, Howard Hawks, Sergio Leone, Sam Peckinpah and Max Hardcore. Sure, you might name dozens of other fine filmmakers in this wonderful genre, but only these six are so good that they’re sublime! Please note that Max started his work much later than all the others, and he can be seen as the only follower of the great Western tradition to reach the level of excellence of those old masters, and he still managed to bring the twist to the genre that is completely his own. How can you beat that?
On the other hand, he’s today’s version of The Great Slashtubitch. And he’s the world’s greatest satirist since Vasiliy Travnikov!
Megan’s personal gains from doing a project like that are innumerable. First, she can improve the relationship with her family. Many scenes made by Max feature his female costars looking directly at the camera and saying things like “Hi mommy! Look what I can do!” And also: “Hi daddy! Are you proud of your little girl? I’m an actress now!” Besides, Max encourages them to bring their little sisters, which is an invaluable tool of building healthy sisterly relationships. (On a side note, this will also be an example of breaking the fourth wall, which is a necessary kick in the teeth of today’s all too academic film grammar.)
Besides, Megan, like many young stars, must be struggling to control her weight. Max is one of the most renowned and respected nutritionists in all of showbiz, and he enthusiastically teaches his costars to keep themselves, in the words of the man himself, “nice and skinny”.
As Max is a brilliant satirist, Megan can showcase her intelligence and social awareness by appearing in one of his videos.
Finally, I think we can all agree that when the images of Megan Fox drinking Max Hardcore’s urine will hit the big screens all around the world, all the people will feel a little more liberated. I’m sure that’s the important goal for Megan, and for each and every one of us.
Unfortunately, Max has been put in prison for all the wrong reasons, showing that the legal system of USA is still far from perfect. I think we should all unite and do what we can to convince the Government of USA, and Barrack Obama personally, that it’s a matter of extreme cultural and social importance to release Max Hardcore from prison and persuade Megan Fox to participate in his newest project.
Join our cause. Don’t be just another number.
