Megan Fox doesn’t want to be like Angelina Jolie


Megan Fox: I'm no Angelina Jolie!

Megan Fox has revealed that she is nothing like Angelina Jolie.

The “Jennifer's Body” actress has frequently been compared to the “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” star since her breakthrough role in 2007's “Transformers,” but despite the brunettes' similar looks and penchant for wild statements, the younger actress insists they are poles apart .

Fox, 23, said: "People compare me to Angelina Jolie, and she's so serious and stoic. I'm the opposite.

"I'm not a tigress like Angelina. Of course, people want me to be. But I want to be the contradiction of that."

Fox, who was caught in a furor after she compared “Transformers” director Michael Bay to Nazi party leader Adolf Hitler, blamed the Angelina comparisons for people taking her too seriously.

"When I do interviews, I say things that I think are hysterical,” she said. “But because we live in a world of sound bites, you're not allowed to have a sense of humor.

"Sarcasm doesn't translate in print at all. And neither does self-deprecating humor."

The Irish-American actress, who dates “90210” alum Brian Austin Green, also said she had doubts about her own acting skills, unlike Oscar winner Jolie.

She told the New York Times: "I don't know if I'm talented, I don't know what I can do or can't do. I had no skills at all. As a child, I had it in my head that I was supposed to be doing this, and then I did it. But I didn't know what I was doing."
