Megan Fox: ‘I’m Not Your Typical Music Video Model’

Megan Fox is well known for her beauty, but Ms. Fox wants fans and critics alike to know that there’s much more depth to her personality than many people presume, reported US Weekly. Megan told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, which also features Ms. Fox on the cover of their April 2015 issue, that she’s aware that she has the reputation for being somewhat shallow and superficial, but Megan points out that those that share that opinion of her are speaking out of ignorance.

“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.”

Ms. Fox blames much of this misconception about her personality on her own immaturity, admitting that the films that really launched her to success, Transformers (2007) and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), came at a time when she still “had no idea” what was going on.

Megan Fox also acknowledges that some of the criticism she received for her role in Transformers was deserved. Speaking of her termination from the project, Ms Fox regrets not taking a more active part in the film. Megan also admits that comparing director Michael Bay to Hitler was not the best opinion to express. In the end, however, Ms. Fox stands by her film work.

“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.”

Megan Fox looks glamorous in her Harper’s Bazaar Arabia fashion shoot, modeling Zac Posen, Louis Vuitton and Roland Mouret outfits with accessories from Tiffany & Co.

Megan also said that she’s also not overly concerned with getting anyone’s approval. Looking back, Megan realizes that she should have taken the time to decide for herself where she wanted to take her career and her life. Even at 20, when she worked on that first Transformers film, Ms. Fox knew that starting a family and having children was s very important part of her life. Contrary to that reputation she’s hoping to shed for attention-seeking, Ms. Fox leaves the fame-mongering to others.

“I don’t sit back and have a game plan and make decisions about my career like other actors do. I have no ego tied up into my career at all. If I get pitched into a movie I do it and that’s that; it doesn’t matter if it’s weird or small or huge. I trust my intuition.”

Megan also spoke of her unique parenting ideals and her hopes to pass on her free-spirited nature to her children, Noah, 2 years old, and Bodhi, 13 months. Megan is also a stepmother to Brian Austin Green’s 13-year-old son, Kassius.
