Megan Fox: Wild Thing
In this month’s highly anticipated box office behemoth Transformers, 21-year-old Megan Fox kicks robot ass. In real life she’s morphing into a full-fledged movie star.
We’re psyched to see Transformers, so please tell us the movie is better than the ’80s cartoon.
I’m not just saying this because I’m in it, but Transformers is the best movie Michael Bay has ever directed, and it’s definitely the sickest movie coming out this summer.
Were you as popular in school as your character in the movie?
No. Bitchy girls tortured me in school. They’d say horrible things and throw ketchup packets at me until I left the lunchroom. Getting ridiculed wore on me after a while.
Did you fight back?
Yeah, I’d take their cars while they were in class and hide them. I was born with an innate rebellion, and I’ve had a problem with it my whole life. I did a lot of stupid stuff, torturing my mom as a kid. The Wal-Mart in Port St. Lucie, Florida banned me for life for stealing stuff like Mary-Kate and Ashley lip gloss. They said they’d arrest me if I ever came back.
We’re guessing this is before you starred alongside the Olsen twins in Holiday in the Sun?
It was afterward. I’d grown to appreciate them as people, so I stole their products. They’re really sweet girls considering the massive amount of money they have.
Have you ever had a beef with a costar?
I go to the set thinking I’m not going to have any female friends, because that’s the reality of the business. 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 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 Lohan since then, but I imagine she’s grown and become a different person. I know I have.
Anything we’d be surprised to learn about Hollywood?
I know people’s secrets–for instance, that some of the women considered to be the sexiest women alive look that way only because they’ve had three nose jobs and their jaw lines shaved down. Sure, they’re perfect now, but they didn’t start out that way. You can keep secrets from America, but you can’t keep them from the inner Hollywood circle…
How have you avoided the cliched road to rehab?
I’ve done drugs, and that’s how I know I don’t like them. Cocaine is back with a vengeance–everyone in every club is doing drugs. A lot of people are on prescription drugs. Celebrities aren’t trying to hide it, except where people have camera phones.
Did you go through an experimental phase?
I wanted to try several things and make an informed decision, but I didn’t enjoy anything other than marijuana. I don’t even think of it as a drug-it should be legalized. I know about five people who aren’t on drugs today, and I’m one of them.
Finally, a celebrity who isn’t afraid to tell the truth!
I’m blunt and maybe too honest. But being outspoken is good for women, particularly when it comes to sex. Women are supposed to be on magazine covers dressed provocatively, but they’re not allowed to talk about sex? That double standard angers me.
Don’t forget to breathe…
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.
What kinds of things put you in the mood?
I’m young and have a lot of hormones-I’m always in the mood. But I like sex with one person in a relationship. Sex with random-ass people at clubs isn’t what I’m about.
You’ve got nine tattoos. Are you trying to break Angelina Jolie’s record?
Every time I get a tattoo, it’s a little screw-you to anyone who tells me not to. It’s weird to be part of Hollywood, which tries to control every aspect of people, from what they say to the color of their hair. And I like the way getting a tattoo feels. If I’m depressed, it’s nice to get one and deal with the pain. I have one all the way down my ribs. It hurt, but it felt good—like twisting a loose tooth. I’m not kidding when I say that if I ever lose a role because of my tattoos, I’ll quit Hollywood and go to work at Costco.
Anything else that hurts so good?
Yeah. If you enjoy one type of pain, there are several other forms you’ll enjoy as well, but I don’t want to get into too much detail and make my mom have to bury her head in the sand.
Are you always this edgy?
You won’t believe this, but I never go out. I don’t like drunk, sweaty people whose only goal is to have sex. I stay home and play computer backgammon. Every once in a while, I go to Color Me Mine to do pottery. I’m not wholesome, but I’m trying to behave.
