Megan Fox swears she’s not narcissistic

megan fox

Megan Fox is a pretty hot lady, right? We can all generally agree that she’s extremely conventionally attractive, even if she doesn’t really do it for us personally? Okay then. It stands to reason that Megan herself knows she’s hot, considering she’s not very good at acting and yet has managed to carve herself somewhat of a career out of her physical appearance. But so what? Just because she’s a babe doesn’t also mean she’s not a totally down-to-earth, intelligent lady.

From Harper’s Bazaar Arabia (via US Weekly):

“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. 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.”

Who would call her a music video model? Is that even a thing? I’m sure she’s not an idiot, despite having said quite a few idiotic things in her day, but I don’t really feel like anyone ever says any of these things about Megan Fox except Megan Fox herself, who denies that she’s dumb, narcissistic, etc. Am I missing something?

Anyhoo, here’s what Megan had to say about not knowing what she was doing in Hollywood at the start of her career:

“In Transformers I was a kid, I had no idea what I was doing. There was nothing for me to do [in that movie], but then I did nothing and that was my own call,” she explained of her criticized breakout role opposite Shia LaBeouf, which she was ultimately fired from after comparing working with Michael Bay to Hitler. “I don’t take it personally because in some ways I acknowledge and agree. But at the same time…established comedians and Quentin Tarantino have come up to me and said, ‘I really liked Jennifer’s Body, you were really good in that’. The people whose opinions matter liked it, so I’m OK with that.”

HAHAHA OF COURSE Quentin Tarantino liked Jennifer’s Body – that’s the most obvious thing I’ve ever heard. That still doesn’t mean it was any good.

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green got hit by a drunk driver

megan fox brian austin green

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green could have been seriously injured this week, but don’t worry – they’re actually okay. They were out driving in Los Angeles on Friday when a drunk driver switched lanes and swiped their Range Rover. Thankfully they weren’t hurt at all, but they could have been – and the possibility has really left them shaken up.

“It could have ended horribly. We were talking about it today, on the way to run errands. I was saying, ‘We’re really lucky,” Green, 41, told Us at the 6th Annual Night of Generosity Gala in Beverly Hills on Friday, Dec. 5. “He was going 50 miles an hour, and we were going 25 down the street, and we hit head?on. The inertia of that is is life changing. That’s life changing for us.”

The couple’s two sons Noah, 2, and Bodhi, 9 months, were luckily not in the car at the time. Still, Green and 28-year-old Fox (who was in the passenger seat) were shaken up by the incident. “[The driver] hit the air bag. I got out of the car. I shook hands with the man,” Green explained. “The cars did their jobs.”

“That being said, he came around the corner very fast,” the actor continued. “Let alone, I’ve heard, he had a few drinks.” As previously reported, Green called the cops at the scene and the drunk driver was then taken into custody.

Huh. Well, it’s a good job nobody was hurt. I still will never, ever understand why people get behind the wheel when under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It really boggles my mind. If you had the money to go out buying alcohol, you’ll have the money to call a damn taxi home so that you don’t take someone’s life – or possibly your own.

Megan Fox joins Instagram, immediately posts #nomakeup selfie

megan fox

Being a mom is great and all, but sometimes you just need hordes of Instagram users to validate that you’re still hot and sexy, so you have to sign up for the social networking site and post an “early morning, no makeup” selfie to appeal to the masses. That’s what Megan Fox did, and nearly 18,000 people responded. You’ve still got it, girl.

To be honest, I’m actually kind of shocked that Megan signed up for Instagram. After all, she spends SO much time in her interviews talking about how NOT vain she is and how beauty comes from within and she’s not into herself, etc. Instagram is the capital city of People Who Are Into Themselves City, isn’t it?

Megan Fox doesn’t let her kids watch TV

megan fox

Megan Fox is clearly super into being a mom. She’s got two young boys – 2-year-old Noah and 4-month-old Bodhi – and that must make her career in acting pretty difficult to maintain, right? Well, yeah, and she doesn’t really care, because apparently she’s never had much ambition. Huh.

Also, she doesn’t let her kids watch TV, only movies since movies are “more linear” (whatever that even means) and she thinks parents who stick their kids in front of the tube aren’t doing a very good job, apparently.

From Parents:

P: Now that you’re a mom, how does that affect how you pick your projects?

MF: The main thing it does is it affects how much I’m willing to work. I’ve never been an extraordinarily ambitious girl or career-oriented, but especially once I got pregnant with my first son and now [having] my second, it’s so hard to be a working mom especially when your heart is not in your work, when your heart is with your family. I have to make one movie a year because I have to invest in their future and I have to be able to pay their way through college and be able to provide for them. I’m looking for movies that will shoot in Los Angeles, for projects where I’m part of an ensemble so I can shoot in and out in 10-20 days. It’s all about trying to spend as little time away from my kids as possible.
P: What is it like having two kids under 2? What’s the most enjoyable part and most challenging part?

MF: It’s total chaos obviously. Before you have kids you really do not understand how much work it is and how consuming it is. And then you have one and you’re like, “Oh my God my baby is my whole world.” Every moment of the day is dedicated to this one baby and then all of a sudden you have two babies! Their needs are so different because Noah is nearing 2 and then my newborn is 4 months. It’s really hard to manage because I also don’t let them watch TV. It’s not like I’m going to sit Noah in front of the television so I can take care of Bodhi. I have to figure out how to incorporate Noah into the process and have him help me take care of Bodhi and make sure he doesn’t get jealous and make sure nobody’s neglected and everybody’s needs are being met. As a mom it’s hard because I don’t feel like I’m ever giving either one of them 100% of my attention or 100% of myself, so I carry a lot of guilt. Do they each understand how special they are and how much I love them? And are they understanding that they’re unique? It’s hard to make each one feel like an individual when you have to raise them together and manage them together all of the time. So that’s the most difficult part.
P: You said you don’t let the kids watch TV. When is the age range that you will let them?

MF: I do let them watch movies, I just don’t let them watch TV. With movies I feel like there’s a beginning, a middle and an end. It’s linear. There’s a clear story. I think that it’s different than just putting a kid in front of the television, because it’s just nonstop. They’re just being bombarded with all of this sort of live media and it’s very overwhelming and it’s too stimulating I think for anyone. I don’t watch television because it’s just too much it overwhelms me. I just can’t deal with it. But I do let them watch movies. Movies are so nostalgic and they can remind us of these amazing times in our childhood. I remember going to the theater to see movies with my dad or my mom and those are special moments for me. One day they’re gonna watch television. I can’t keep it from them forever. My intention is to keep it away as long as possible or to introduce it through Apple TV so they’re not being exposed to the commercials constantly. My goal is no computers, no cell phones until at least 8th grade.

Huh. Well, look – I’m not going to say Megan Fox isn’t a dedicated mother, because clearly she’s super into it and loves her kids. I will say that I’m tired of the pompous “my kids don’t watch TV, it’s not right” crap because it’s a luxury that not every parent has (and not every parent agrees with even if they can keep the kids away from the TV). Something tells me that when Megan gets fed up with the kids and just wants a minute to herself, she can leave them with a nanny who’ll entertain them. Most mothers and/or don’t have the disposable income to do that, so the TV is the only way they can actually gets things NOT involving the kids (or maybe involving the kids that they can’t be a part of, like fixing their rooms, or making their food) done.

Also, it’s so obnoxious to complain about how much you just don’t wanna work but oh, you guess you’ll just HAVE to make a movie so you can put your kids through school. Get a grip on reality. Most parents have to work full-time jobs, year round – sometimes multiple full-time jobs – to do the same and many still come up short. The woe-is-me, poor movie star thing just does not wash. Sigh. Since Megan Fox went away for a while I forgot how annoying she is. This was a great reminder.

The first ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ trailer is here!

ninja turtles

Michael Bay is heading up the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, so you know it’s going to be a hot mess – especially with Megan Fox as April. However, this thing is happening and it will probably do relatively well and now we have the first trailer.

Admittedly, this whole thing looks… odd, but then I guess you can’t expect anything else from a live-action film about mutant reptiles that love pizza and do martial arts, so I guess we’ll have to go with it.

What do you think? Will you go and see it?

What Did Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green Name Their Son?

megan fox brian austin green

Megan Fox announced her pregnancy last August, only nine months after giving birth to hers and Brian Austin Green‘s first child, Noah. She gave birth to baby number two on February 12th, but the news about his name was kept secret… until now.

So what did Megan and Brian name their second son? Bodhi Ransom Green. I’m not sure what the significance of the name is, to be honest, but I guess it could be worse. What would you call Bodhi as a nickname? I guess it’s only two syllables and doesn’t really need one, but it doesn’t exactly flow off the tongue…

TMZ got a hold of the birth certificate, of course, because nothing is sacred. Here ya go:

Speaking of Babies, Megan Fox is Having Another One

megan fox

It wasn’t so long ago that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green had their baby boy, Noah, right? In fact, I think he’s only about 9 months old, right? Well, apparently April O’Neil is a permanent resident of the Fertile Crescent (lol) because she’s already pregnant with their second kid.

From The New York Post:

Megan Fox is pregnant with her second child with husband Brian Austin Green, Page Six has exclusively confirmed. Fox is represented by top publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnick, who told us, “I can confirm Megan is expecting her second child with her husband Brian, they are both very happy.”

All I can say is: Yikes! Having one baby must be hard enough, but two that close together? I know people do it, and of course it’ll be ten times easier for Megan and Brian since they’re rich and can hire help, but goddamn. I wonder how many she’s going to pop out? And oh yeah, congrats to the happy couple!
