Why it’s easy (and a bad idea) to hate Megan Fox
We didn’t want to like her: she dresses tackily, probably can’t act and brazenly embraces ubiquity. Her hotness seems engineered by Germans. She has not a single humanizing physical flaw. Worse, she’s unapologetic. But in press conferences, red carpet moments and reports from trusty sources—i.e., non-gossip writers—Megan Fox is bloody brilliant. Her interviews are brash, funny and on-point. When she says the wrong thing, it’s on purpose. She’s generous that way, making it easy to hate her.
Rumours had it that she stayed out all night on King Street after the Midnight Madness premiere of Jennifer’s Body—but if that’s true, all the more kudos are due. The Fox showed at her morning-after press conference like it was brunch with the in-laws: dressed in demure ruffles, smiling warmly, sipping Lipton’s. Pure contrivance? Probably. But we’ll never say she’s dumb.
In truth, the Jennifer’s Body failing organ is Amanda Seyfried. Far from being the smart Betty to Fox’s airheaded Veronica, she came off as spacey and witless, answering in ums, eye rolls and leaden sound bites. To wit (or, er, not): “You know, I just kind of had to make it up, which is what acting is all about.” When a Toronto Star reporter asked Seyfried, inanely, how she felt about potentially “scaring the heck out of little girls” by acting in a freaky flick, it was Fox who snapped back out of turn.
“Why wouldn’t it scare the hell out of little boys, too?”
“I mean, why would it just be young girls who are scared? Why not little boys?”
Fox’s real bête noire is her beauty, and when the talk turned to looks, it was the first time during the press conference that she sounded false. “In the movie, real is beautiful,” she said. “You don’t have to look like an airbrushed Cosmopolitan cover all the time to be beautiful.”
The irony is that Fox does look like an airbrushed Cosmopolitan cover, even when she’s five feet away under fluorescent lights. But that doesn’t mean it’s all sex and superficiality inside, and we should’ve known better than to judge.

Of course, the only reason anyone would not like Megan Fox is because she is perfect in every way and one can’t help being jealous. It would have nothing to do with the fact that she thinks she is better than everyone else in their twenties, feels it is necessary to publicly humiliate any man who has the audacity to hit on her, and puts down other women for utilizing their vocabulary.
But, sorry, I must just be envious.
Her interviews are funny? Are you serious? I think she tries way too hard to be controversial, and says very unintelligent things. And no, I don’t really think it’s on purpose.
Say what you will but the topless pics and scenes of Megan Fox will surely change just about anyone’s mind.
Heh heh – thats what I thought!
She’s the biggest hypocrite. If she doesn’t care what people think then why all the plastic surgery? Why would anyone be jealous of someones else’s fake plastic parts. I’ve seen a lot of pictures lately where she looks very masculine and not so pretty. I wouldn’t call her flawless at all. Toe-thumbs, acne scars and a bad boob job are for starters.
Also, Michael Bays worker are attacking her after she called him Hitler…seems she’s a b*tch to work with and no one likes her.
I think the question I’d like answered is why we waste our time hating at all. It’s such a waste of energy, really. Get over yourselves people.
megan is stupid
I agree with the above post. She is a true example of a hypocrite at its best. Seriously, she’s always promoting this idea that she is such a strong women, she’s a feminist(puh-leeze!) and guys are so weak, blah, blah, blah. Yet this same girl capatilizes solely on her looks/sex appeal/physical body image. She also is practically naked on every photo you see of her, regardless if it’s a pin up or a night out. She bad mouths other girls all the time, and she always degrades herself by saying she is disturbed, ugly, nympho ( as well as her hyper-sexualized photo shoots). I’m not saying that if you are sexy, you can’t act or dress sexy, etc. But when all you do is talk about sex, open your legs and dress nearly naked in photos, pose like a porno star, and don’t back it up with substance, people will trash you. And then she blames men for hitting on her. Hello,newsflash Megan! when you pose in maxim, it’s only men that read it!I really wish I hated Megan Fox because I’m jealous of her “looks”, whatever that is supposed to mean. But unfortunately, i think Megan Fox hates herself more than anyone out there.It takes someone when no self-respect to objectify themselves like that.
I think that the majority of people think Megan Fox is beautiful. I personally believe she is stunning, I love her dark hair piecing blue eyes and flawless complexion and I will honestly say that yeah I wished I looked like that. But it’s more of an admiration instead of jealousy. People think that just because she’s beautiful everybody has to love her and if you don’t you’re just ‘jealous’ . Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and if they don’t like Megan they shouldn’t be labeled as ‘jealous’. It just means they have a different opinion than yours. I personally like Megan physically but I feel she’s just one of those girls who doesn’t have a lot of talent and gets far career wise just because of her plastic surgery enhanced looks. Like I said before she’s gorgeus but I mean come on their are even more beautiful girls than her who actually have talent but their not given as much attention because they’re not saying ridiculous things as Megan and because they’re not as exploited as Megan.
fragilehearts- you can’t figure out the answer? well it’s quite simple, everybody has the right to write what they please. Some people are frustrated so much with this woman that sometimes they just want to let the world know. jeesh kid it ain’t that hard to figure out.
She is fake and I feel sorry for her because she is so young and she has a lot of plastic surgeries: http://plasticsergeant.com/megan-fox That is weird
