Megan Fox is on the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly to chat about her upcoming film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Her costar Shia LaBeouf has earned himself the reputation of an open book because of his tendency to overshare in interviews, but Megan is right up there with him. She sat down with the magazine to chat all about her career, Angelina Jolie, and her are-they-or-aren't-they relationship with Brian Austin Green. Here's more:
- On saying she's afraid of Angelina: "I was joking! She always seems otherworldly in her power and her confidence. I'm sure she has no idea who I am. But if I were her, I'd be like, 'Who the f-ck is this little bulls-it brat who was in Transformers that's going to be the next me?' I don't want to meet her; I'd be embarrassed."
- On growing up wanting to be famous: "Well, yeah, because that's how you measure success in Hollywood, really. But you have no idea what this life is like until you are living it. I used to sit back and think, ''Please, Britney Spears has the best life ever — she has everything she could ever want!' But she has one of the worst lives. Her life is a living f-cking nightmare. I have panic attacks thinking about her life."
- On working with Lindsay Lohan on Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen in 2004: "That was prenightmare. We didn't get along, but we were, like, 17, so of course we didn't get along. Girls are catty; they don't like each other."
To see what Megan has to say about Brian, being a sex symbol and why girls don't like her just
- On her relationship with Brian: "Brian and I are not engaged, because when you're engaged, your goal is marriage. And I don't think that's a realistic goal for me right now. I know I'm not capable at this point in my life of being a good partner or a good wife. That's like a joke. We're sort of trying to figure out what our relationship is."
- On being referred to as a sex symbol: "It doesn't bother me. I don't know why someone would complain about that. That just means that the bar has been set pretty low. People don't expect me to do anything that's worth watching. So I can only be an overachiever. I think all women in Hollywood are known as sex symbols. That's what our purpose is in this business. You're merchandised, you're a product. You're sold and it's based on sex. But that's okay. I think women should be empowered by that, not degraded."
- On why girls don't usually like her: "I think most people are extremely insecure. As far as girls go, I have a really bad-ass personality. I'm smart and I can be really funny and interesting and I can go toe-to-toe with anybody in a conversation. So I'm not afraid to speak, and I think that's what people read as this überconfidence. I have a mouth and I'm not afraid to use it."
