Say What? Megan Fox Talks Girl-on-Girl Hatred

"The problem is, if they think you’re attractive, you’re either stupid or a whore or a dumb whore. The instinct among girls is to attack the jugular.”

— Megan Fox tries to explain why she's not too popular with the ladies. The actress, who is on the cover of this weekend's New York Times Magazine, is having a hard time gaining traction with a female audience.

Literally the most good looking actress I have ever seen. AND IM A GIRL. When I see women like Jessica Alba or Jessica Simpson who used to be "the most sexiest women", I never looked at them and thought they were the sexiest women. But when i look at megan fox, im like, YEAH thats as good as it gets. Her acting might not be up to par for some people, but in the looks department she is better looking than any other woman celebrity. AND I KNOW, this is just an opinion. But she has done nothing to deserve my hate. & you really shouldnt hate her just because shes a poor actress. Many people love hannah montana or miley cyrus. She says and does stupid things, and cant act, but little girls across the world love her anyway.

FamousFox, I also have a hard time seeming relatable or approachable, but not because I'm a knockout beauty, but because I really am that way and take full responsibility for it. So while I don't mean to diminish or question the fact that you're gorgeous, maybe the distance you feel from women stems more from your (real or just perceived) coldness. I know one of my best friends is utterly beautiful, really pretty (also blonde, slim and blue-eyed), but everyone (including girls/women) likes her because she always comes across as sweet and nice to be around or talk to.

Actually, sometimes I find myself liking Megan Fox a little more because of all the stupid things she says. She knows those ridiculous quotes will create thousands of threads like this all over the Internet, generating more publicity for her. At least she knows good PR... Anyway, about this particular quote... I do think women hate her a little unfairly sometimes; not because of her looks, and not just because she comes off as conceited and ignorant, but because of all the attention she gets without merit. Women can understand why Charlize Theron or Angeline Jolie are worshiped, they're talented and smart on top of being ridiculously gorgeous. But Megan is just a hot girl who got lucky in Hollywood. It can be a little revolting to a lot of women... Juicebox07: you have every right to be hurt, your boyfriend was real jerk! Even if you asked about your hotness vs. Megan's, there are sensible ways of saying that she is more attractive (after all she is a celebrity). Any decent guy would say so in a way that would make feel good anyway.

sure, i can see where some may be jealous and say negative things about her. but somehow she manages to come off as trite, juvenile, and unintelligent in nearly every interview i've read about her. i grow more weary of her as time goes on. maybe it's the media to blame but goodness, someone please find her a new PR agent.

FamouFox, I feel your pain. I have the same problem, and it is sometimes really difficult to seem approachable. Its just something we have to deal with and accept.

The only intelligence I can attribute to her is her great self marketing skills. Her agency really knows how to promote her to men. It seems so planned for her to go out and say things like this and other comments about how she just loves beer and football, thus making her the perfect boy toy. Good for her, it seems like the quick way to money... also the quick way out of Hollywood when her 5 mins are over!

I like Megan Fox. But this act of being the victim is slightly off putting. Yes, some people will like you and others won't. Just deal with it. Saying women hate me because I'm beautiful is NOT going to win them over. The key is to be relatable if you want women to like you. Yes she is a stunning woman, but if she could find a way for other women to relate to her she would be more well liked IMHO.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's the fact that she says conceited and batsh*t crazy things and basically whines that her hotness is a burden. Shut. Up.

Keyword: tasteful. Of course, if juicebox had inquired about her hotness, that's another story.

juicebox07: Of course every airbrushed celebrity with a make-up artist (and/or good plastic surgeon) is going to look gorgeous, and obviously your boyfriend is going to find other women attractive, but if my boyfriend ever made that kind of comment to me ('uh, I'd rate you a 5/10, whereas Megan Fox is off the scale')... I'd dump his sorry ass. No doubt you were hurt by that.

I don't hate her at all. She is fun to look at. I'm sure my bf thinks so too.

Oh yeah, I also wanted to mention that Anon brought up a good point. She's had a nose and boob job at least so... it's kind of silly for her to complain about how girls hate her prettiness. She purposely amped up her looks.

Megan Fox is definitely pretty, but I don't think it's fair to say that women hate her because of this. MANY women in Hollywood are very pretty and have tons of female fans. I think the problem with Megan Fox is, that's really all she seems to be: just prettiness and sex. So yeah, girls aren't really going to get to excited about that because, well, there isn't much to relate to. It's like getting angry that women aren't fans of Jenna Jameson. In addition, she seems sooo fake and focused on her looks. I have never ever seen a picture of her without a face full of makeup. Even in pictures that claim she isn't wearing makeup, it's completely obvious (at least to me and a few friends) that she is wearing a lot of it: mascara, eyeliner, blush, lip gloss, etc. I also find this hard to relate to because I tend not to wear so much makeup. So yeah, guys may think she's hot, but I don't think she's very real. IMO: Amanda Peet is my favorite pretty girl

Um, anon 18. What a great idea to get Drew Berrymore drunk at a party...she's an alcoholic... Anyway, I'm jealous of Megan Fox cause she's drop dead gorgeous and has a killer body! I'm thankful I'm not her because she can't act for the life of her and will be never heard of again in 3 years...

I think it's wrong for her to apply this generalization to women in general, but there is some truth to what she's saying. It's especially noticeable in the legal community.

I left the keyboard, continued typing and pressed enter. Right now I realized I was unclear in some of what I said. I was trying to say was that girls often know that looks don't get you very far, so they developed other traits and skills that they can use in the real world. It doesn't look as if Megan Fox is the kind of person who tried to do anything more with herself than be "hot".

I think that Megan Fox is in a "perpetually high school" state of mind. The way she speaks about women and their behavior is just ridiculous. She is trying to make it seem as if all women hate anyone who is pretty -- which is not the case. It's one thing to envy and another thing to hate. Some people may very well hate her based on her looks, I would like to think that anyone that is above the high school years would flirt with the idea that looks can only get you so far, and therefore pursue other endeavors, like teaching or marketing. Megan seems catty, immature, and unrealistic. She claims people hate her because of this so-called beauty that not everyone sees, including myself. It takes good traits and being personable to attract people to you in a good way. She makes herself totally unlikeable by being a stuck up bitch, and raving on about how her life is such and such because she is pretty. Does she have anything else to say about herself? For someone so smart she certainly seems to lack some common sense. Sure people may hate you because you are are pretty. Sure some women you deal with now go for the jugular. But life is not high school, and in reality, the adults I know seem to function very well socially, aren't completely tactless and superficial. If you get your head out of your ass and you start to be a likeable person (which is possible without being fake), then people will not be hating you as much.

I read her responses to interviews and what I can say it that: SHE'S HOT AND SHE THINKS SHE'S SO SMART. And way too overconfident. I don't mind girls like that if they have something to show but the kind of roles she plays and the kind of exposure she submits herself to doesn't fit her ideal. SERIOUSLY!

She looks beautiful here. Truthfully, I think SOME women are as she described, not all.
