Megan Fox for Prestige Magazine,
There’s something fantastically quirky about this quintessential Hollywood hottie. She’s starred in several action films and an equal number of comedies, both television and film. The dare-to-bare magazine shoots she’s done (listed in every “hot” list or “most beautiful” roster) versus the zany interviews she’s given on talk shows where her tongue-in-cheek quips seem at odds with her chic glamour; the old-school femme fatale vibe she exudes versus the distinctly non-diva behaviour on set. It’s all so incongruous and unexpected.
From the outset when she first appeared on sitcoms, there was no denying how incredible she looked – her comedic counterparts commented on her bombshell physicality. Beautiful women generally aren’t expected to be that funny – “You need a fly in the ointment of comedy,” said Fran Drescher, star of the popular 1990s sitcom The Nanny, who has stunning looks, “But then, God gave me this voice so I was meant to lead in a situation comedy!”
Megan Fox, however, has no such aberrations. The breathy cadences, those laser-focused blue eyes, curves in all the right places, a body covered in tattoos, that slick black hair and her revealing gowns on the red carpet … yes, there have been comparisons with Angelina Jolie, “but I felt more of a kinship with Marilyn Monroe”, she says.
