Modesty used to be a virtue, girls. But these days it's not one you can afford. That seems to be the case with Megan Fox. In an interview this week the 'Transformer's' babe admitted she's 'not ugly' and finds Hollywood's marketing her as a sex symbol 'empowering.'
On being a sex symbol: 'I don't know why someone would complain about that. That just means that the bar has been set pretty low,' she told the press.
'People don't expect me to do anything that's worth watching. So I can only be an overachiever. I think all women in Hollywood are known as sex symbols. That's what our purpose is in this business. You're merchandised, you're a product. You're sold and it's based on sex. But that's okay. I think women should be empowered by that, not degraded.'
Okay then. It would be even more empowering if you also starred in a film that doesn't involve lots of cars exploding. I'm just saying.
'Well, I'm clearly not ugly,' Fox continued. 'I think most people are extremely insecure. As far as girls go, I have a really badass personality. I'm smart and I can be really funny and interesting and I can go toe-to-toe with anybody in a conversation. So I'm not afraid to speak, and I think that's what people read as this uberconfidence. I have a mouth and I'm not afraid to use it.'
Hopefully she'll use that big mouth and that badass personality to secure a script worth watching soon. The girl's no fool and it would be nice to see her land a major role that proves it.
