Megan Fox Disses Marilyn Monroe & Lindsay Lohan In Esquire
Megan Fox wasn’t feeling so foxy when she looked into the mirror recently. So, although the 26-year-old actress has one of the hottest faces in the business, the wife of Beverly Hills 90210 alum Brian Austin Green—who gave birth to son Noah last September—decided her old Marilyn Monroe tattoo was unattractive and had to go!
“I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult,” the This Is 40 star revealed in her latest cover story with Esquire. “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 [Lohan]. 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.”
While Fox no longer worships Monroe, she did admit that she spends a lot of time worshipping a much higher power. “I was raised to believe that you’re safe in God’s hands. The energy is so intense in the room that you feel like anything can happen,” she said. “I have seen magical, crazy things happen. I’ve seen people be healed. Even now, in the church I go to, during Praise and Worship, I could feel that I was maybe getting ready to speak in tongues, and I’d have to shut it off because I don’t know what that church would do if I started screaming out in tongues in the back. 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. But I don’t feel safe with myself.”
Another place Fox doesn’t seem to feel safe is in front of the public eye where she admits to feeling constantly judged. “I don’t think people understand,” she said. “They all think we should shut the (bleep) up and stop complaining because you live in a big house or you drive a Bentley. So your life must be so great. What people don’t realize is that fame, whatever your worst experience in high school, when you were being bullied by those ten kids in high school, fame is that, but on a global scale, where you’re being bullied by millions of people constantly.”
