Megan Fox in Jonah Hex Movie

Megan Fox’s Tiny Waist Secret: Corsets

We're thrilled to present our favorite InStyle story here on Fab!

Megan Fox will soon appear in the comic book adaptation Jonah Hex, which takes place in the Wild West, but all anyone who’s seen the trailer wants to talk about is her tiny waist. “It’s small,” the star admitted to MTV. With the help of vintage corsets, she explained, “we got it down to about 18 inches.” That, you may recall, is Scarlett O’Hara territory. Megan said she wouldn’t mind if the close-fitting foundation garments made a comeback: “I enjoy them . . . maybe I’m sick,” she joked. But after hearing that the ones she wore in the film “would leave these deep grooves, these deep indents from the boning in the corsets, for the whole next day,” we’re happy to leave them in the past. Do you think corsets should have a place in your closet? Tell us in the comments below.

Megan doesnt seem to mind to be type casted as the pretty face. It only lasts until the next pretty face comes along.

Megan Fox is no Scarlett O'Hara, or Vivien Leigh for that matter.

Maybe an anorexic Elizabeth Taylor. I think she looks like a bobble head, way too skinny in the arms and shoulders area...and I'm not one of those girls who thinks any one smaller than Christina Hendricks is "too skinny." When I think western saloon girl I see someone more like Selma Hayek or even someone as small as Mila Kunis for example, who is tiny, but not emancipated-looking.

The pain AND the danger... at the end of the 19th century some women died because of the displacement of organs that was caused by corsets. Also imagine to faint every now and then because you don't get enough air.... If we start wearing corsets again all the souffragettes who burned theirs will be turning in their graves!

I think she looks a lot like Elizabeth Taylor in this picture.Corsets are pretty, but the pain isn't worth it in my opinion.

She has made herself too skinny. A Western with a girl that looks like a waif as a sex symbol. Hm...

that sounds painful, but I wonder how small a corset can make MY waist!
