Megan Fox is about you all to forget how she got famous…her looks and her sassy mouth. In an interview (and cover shoot) with Esquire magazine the actress (?) clarifies that comment she made when she compared Lindsay Lohan to Marilyn Monroe.
She continues to dig a hole as she talks about Lindsay Lohan as though she were already dead. Or is she?
“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,” she added.
Fox continued, “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.”
For those of you who didn’t get the prior memo of Lilo backlash, in the initial interview, Fox was quoted as saying, “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. She wasn’t powerful at the time. She was sort of like Lindsay. 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 those footsteps.”
Despite how idiotic Fox may sound, this interview isn’t going to change the fact that the girl is amazingly gorgeous and that Lindsay Lohan probably absolutely ADORES Fox just for putting her name and Marilyn’s in the same sentence.
