Megan Fox Thinks Her Bombshell Image Devalued Her

Posted by PZ on January 15th, 2013


Megan Fox believes her bombshell image almost destroyed her career because it devalued her too much. She thinks it removed any interesting parts of her personality and she even felt powerless because everyone thought of her in the same light:

“I felt powerless in that image, I didn’t feel powerful. It ate every other part of my personality, not for me but for how people saw me, because there was nothing else to see or know. That devalued me. Because I wasn’t anything. I was an image. I was a picture. I was a pose.”

The new mom also says that she isn’t interested in drinking or drugs because she likes to be in control of herself and her body.  Although she can let go in church, she doesn’t feel like she can let go outside of church because she can’t feel safe in herself:

“I can’t stand pills. I don’t like drinking. I don’t like feeling out of control, I have to feel like I’m in control of my body. And I know what you’re thinking, Then why would I want to go to church and speak in tongues? You have to understand, there I feel safe. I was raised to believe that you’re safe in God’s hands. But I don’t feel safe with myself.”

Revealing why she decided to get rid of her Marilyn Monroe tattoo, Megan explains that she doesn’t want to follow in her tragic footsteps:

“I feel like I willed it be gone, they told me it was going to take six sessions and it’s nearly gone in one. I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult. It’s like when you visualize something for your future. I didn’t want to visualize something so negative. She wasn’t powerful at the time. She was sort of like Lindsay. She was an actress who wasn’t reliable, who almost wasn’t insurable…. She had all the potential in the world, and it was squandered. I’m not interested in following in those footsteps.”
