Megan Fox continues to battle the impression that she first gave when she starred in Transformers in her early 20’s.
Her performance lacked, well, everything but eye candy, but Megan Fox admits that she was young and didn’t know what she was doing.
Megan Fox said, “In Transformers I was a kid. I had no idea what I was doing. There was nothing for me to do [in the film], but then I did nothing and that was my own call.”
She added, “I don’t take it personally because in some ways I acknowledge and agree. But at the same time, both established comedians and Quentin Tarantino have come up to me and said, ‘I really liked Jennifer’s Body. You were really good in that’.”
Megan Fox also said, “The people whose opinions matter liked it, so I’m OK with that.”
Megan Fox also conceded that she knows people don’t think she’s smart.
She said, “I would say most people assume that I’m not very smart or educated or earnest, because I have this image that I’m sort of narcissistic, chasing attention, and wanting people to like me.”
Megan Fox added, “It makes me laugh because I’ve done plenty of interviews and when you read the article from beginning to end you can see that I’m not your typical music video model.”
While Megan Fox has looked the part of “music video model” through her younger years, she says back then she really didn’t know what she wanted out of life, except that she wanted to be a mom.
Megan Fox said of her Transformer days, “I think there’s a lot of growing personally that I needed to do, to control my passion. I really wanted to be a mom, and I wasn’t yet, and I really struggled with that.”
She added, “I was just too young to see where I wanted to go.”
Now that Megan Fox, 28, has become a mother to two boys, Noah, two, and Bodhi, 13 months, with husband Brian Austin Green, do you think she’ll ever be able to shake that sex symbol reputation?
