Megan Fox: I'm Not the Next Anyone

Transformers star Megan Fox is a hot commodity these days. The outspoken (and drop dead gorgeous) actress has been doing the media rounds gracing almost every magazine cover this month.

Foxy Megan is Entertainment Weekly's July cover girl posing with one of her favorite robots. Lucky robot. Here are some highlights from the interview:

How did you feel about being sexualized like that when you were 15?

I thought it was awesome. I was going to a Christian high school and I wasn’t a feminist yet. I hadn’t sat back and analyzed society yet. I was 15! I just did what I was told to do.

What did your parents think?

My mom was with me! I was always übersexual, so she wasn’t shocked. I was always wearing the smallest clothes I could find. I would go to the mall like that — in a short, short skirt and a giant wedge heel. That’s what you do when you’re a teenage girl in a small town.

Do you think you’re good-looking?

Well, I’m clearly not ugly.

And you've got a lot of confidence.

I think most people are extremely insecure. As far as girls go, I have a really badass 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.

There have been a lot of comparisons between you and Angelina Jolie.

I think it's a lack of creativity on the media's part. Because I have tattoos and dark hair and I was in an action movie? That's as far as the similarities extend. I'm not the next anyone.

You've said you're afraid of her.

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--- is this little bulls--- brat who was in Transformers that's going to be the next me?'' I don't want to meet her; I'd be embarrassed.

Earlier this afternoon, you mentioned Brian Austin Green. There are always rumors about you guys.

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.

Are you happy with the kinds of roles you're getting offered now?

I get offered some outrageous s---, like Bikini Summer Camp Island, or whatever.

Do you think you're a good actress?

I think I could be. If I really buckle down, I think one day I could be a very good actress. But so far, I haven't done anything yet.

When you were growing up and wanting to be an actress, you must have wanted to be famous one day, right?

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---ing nightmare. I have panic attacks thinking about her life.

You've said you don't have to use big words in interviews just to show you're smart, like Scarlett Johansson does.

That was taken out of context. It made it sound like I was suggesting she's pretentious. She's clearly book-smart and she allows people to see that every time she opens her mouth. And I was suggesting that for me to do that — people would receive it as though I was being pretentious. Not that she was! I would never talk s--- about her.
