Well, you can’t blame her for this one…
Megan Fox, the hottest mom on Sunday's Golden Globes red carpet, has spoken up about her thoughts on where her career is headed. She admits that she wants to distance herself from the simple “sex symbol” category and the like of Lindsay Lohan.
In a new cover story for Esquire, the Transformers actress opens up about where she’s headed.
The topic of “Lindsay Lohan” comes up when Fox is asked about her decision to remove the Marilyn Monroe tattoo on her forearm.
“I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult,” she says. “It’s like when you visualize something for your future. I didn’t want to visualize something so negative.”
Marilyn, she says, “was sort of like Lindsay.”
“She was an actress who wasn’t reliable, who almost wasn’t insurable … She had all of the potential in the world, and it was squandered,” says Fox. “I’m not interested in following in those footsteps.”
With burned bridges and career woes—ranging from extinguishing movie reviews to an unrepresented courtroom battle—corralling quicker than empty vodka bottles in Lindsay’s unpaid hotel room, it’s easy to see why no one would ever want to trade skin with the spiraling star.
Instead, Fox would much rather be compared to actresses like the late, Oscar-nominated Ava Gardner.
“She had power. She was a broad,” says Fox on Gardner. “She got what she wanted and said what she needed.”
