Megan Fox is on the cover of Esquire magazine.
Fox, who gave birth to her first son Noah, flaunts her famous body for Esquire’s February issue.
The Hollywood bombshell revealed in the interview that she would never play a stereotypical hot girl again.
“I felt powerless in that image,” she told Esquire.
“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 actress added that she would like to take on comedies and more serious roles in the future. She doesn’t want to be “just another sexy star” like Marilyn Monroe.
Fox idolized Monroe that she even had her face tattooed on her arm. But recently, Fox says she feels Monroe isn’t the right kind of role model.
“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,” Fox tells Esquire.
She compares Monroe to Lindsay Lohan where she explains both had potential but had squandered it. She went on to say “I’m not interested in following in those footsteps.”
Later, Megan Fox wrote on her Facebook page to explain her comment on Lindsay Lohan.
“In the newly released article that I did for Esquire, there is a reference that is made to Lindsay Lohan that I would like to clarify before it snowballs into something silly. The journalist and I were discussing why I was removing my Marilyn Monroe tattoo, especially since in his opinion, Marilyn was such a powerful and iconic figure for women. I attempted to draw parallels between Lindsay and Marilyn in order to illustrate my point that while Marilyn may be an icon now, sadly she was not respected and taken seriously while she was still living. Both women were gifted actresses, whose natural talent was lost amongst the chaos and incessant media scrutiny surrounding their lifestyles and their difficulties adhering to studio schedules etc. I intended for this to be a factual comparison of two women with similar experiences in Hollywood. Unfortunately it turned into me offering up what is really much more of an uneducated opinion. It was most definitely not my intention to criticize or degrade Lindsay. I would never want her to feel bullied, as she does not deserve that. I was not always speaking eloquently during this interview and this miscommunication is my fault.”
