Megan Fox: “I’m always second-guessing myself.”

megan-fox-w-021510-4 - Megan Fox: "I’m always second-guessing myself.”

On her insecurities / lack of trust :

“I have no confidence, and because of that I’m always second-guessing myself.”

“I especially don’t trust girls in this industry, because it’s incredibly competitive, and I’m just not interested.”

On her lingerie Armani ads:

“There are some women you could put in underwear and photograph them, and it looks really classy and it doesn’t necessarily provoke a pinup image. But with me it does, immediately, as soon as I’m in underwear. I’m a Vargas girl. I feel intimidated by fashion. I hate doing photo shoots.”

… says Megan in W Magazine.

What do you think about her statements?

What is a “Vargas girl”? I’m sorry but i don’t know what that means. 🙁

A pin-up girl, Alberto Vargas was a painter famous for his pin-up pics. I agree with Ana Megan contradicts herself a lot.

clearly you love her solely for her beauty. because as far as “acting” goes (that’s the career she signed up for, no) she’s far from the greatest. doesn’t seem to be that awesome at talking, either, but maybe that’s just my opinion. but yes, a pretty face. don’t pity her, kayla, she makes more in her sleep than most of us do in a decade.

im sick of the ‘you cant say you like her because it means your jealous’ bs. I used to think she was stunning. now, not so much. she is attractive but thats it. I never was a huge fan of her body when she was stick thin but her personality and conceitedness has made me think she is not so pretty on the outside either. My view on people is not so superficial. If they are gorgeous on the inside they can become breath takingly stunning on the outside (even if average at first glance). BUT it also works the… Read more »

Thank you, sola! this connection between jealousy and criticism is sketchy at best. You can think someone is super hot and not be jealous of them while still not liking them. Plus, why do we always assume that the only reason women hate each other is because they are jealous of each other’s looks?? Personally, I am much more jealous of people who are smarter than me and have accomplished more than me in terms of their intellectual pursuits.

sola
Guest

lol i TRY not to get jealous of people that are smarter or nicer etc but sometimes i do! Like, its not jealousy i guess cuz if they are lovely then i am glad to have them in my life, but sometimes i just wish i could be so selfless. I am jealous of people that are really confident and sweet as well (but not a b—y jealousy but more envy)…also i was recently jealous of my friend who is just AMAZING at her job and uni…but i just told my self to shut up and be happy and feel… Read more »

She constantly makes contradictions. Constantly.
I would find her attractive if she seemed like an intelligent person but she doesn’t. She seems very, very airheaded and ungrateful.
Some people think she’s “clever” and “a genius” for making these kind of statements, but that’s complete bs in my opinion.
Artificial beauty; yes. But no brains.

no self confidence? yeah, right. i guess that’s why you’re constantly posing for pics….

most people that lack self confidence do not willingly put themselves in the spotlight.

yep she totally contradicts herself in every single interview.
“I hate doing photo shoot’s”
She is either lying or so fame and money hungry she will do anything to be rich and famous.

I hate that she says she has ‘no confidence’, she must has some otherwise she wont be able to act or pose in front of 20+ people for the world to see.
I have no confidence what so ever, I cant even look people in the eyes and talk at the same time let alone do what Megan is doing.

Cory
Guest

same here i have a hard enough time just talking to strangers i have such bad self confidence. if megan has zero self confidence like she says then how i she able to do all the things shes doing? i think shes just lying to get sympathy and hopefully win back some of the fans she lost by making other stupid comments.

Casey
Guest

To be honest, being the subject of so much criticism and plastic surgery accusations, I can see how her confidence would be low. If I liked my lips and every day strangers would tell me how fake they look, I’m pretty sure my confidence wouldn’t be able to stay high for very long. Not to mention how many people criticize her acting skills and intelligence.

I also agree that it’s very hard for her to look classy. There’s something about her that always more pin-up model than classy.

Alias
Guest
Alias

I agree with pretty much everything you said, I can’t even imagine being judged by the entire world and still being confident 27/7. She is a normal human, she has her days when she feels confident and others when she is unsure of herself. I think she’s raw and honest, I like her a lot.

Cathy
Guest
Cathy
Agreed. Plus you have to take into account that most of her interviews are managed by her PR assistant who usually very nearly dictates her what to say. I doubt she’s airheaded or dumb in any way she just tries to fit into hollywood as good as possible and lets herself be made into whatever people want her to be. That way it’s a sure deal to earn the most money and anyway don’t we all like to b— about soemthing once in a while ? Megan gives us the perfect chance to do so and oh … don’t we… Read more »

I think people give her too much crap. It seems that she says what shes thinking, sometimes what your thinking isn’t always what you truly feel. Shes beautiful, honest and real. So what if she talks about sex and her body? Men can talk about sex without it being a big deal and everyone always asks why she’s always talking about her body but its an interview! Shes asked questions about it and she answers them! This world is obsessed with beauty, the “beautiful” women are expected to model in little to no clothes and be a sexual figure but… Read more »

amen to that. guess no matter what a woman says about her looks and whatnot, she never seems to win. if men talk about sex it’s nothing but if a woman chooses to do it, she’s s—ty, nasty, trashy and whatnot. talk about double standard. i’m no megan fan myself but i do respect someone that’s honest about what they talk about. people can say you’re beautiful all the time but doesn’t mean you will feel that way all the time. in order to feel beautiful, you need to see that you’re beautiful instead of people telling you that because… Read more »

its not her talking about sex that gets me. I also hate men that do it like her, they sound like they have small d**ks imo. lol. what gets me about her is all her contradictions and conceited sounding things. I hate the ‘bad ass’ try hard image. just be yourself. dont try be bad. i am sick of hearing how bad she is. how different she is. how secure she is and how insecure other women are. if you have to tell the world how bad and different you are, my guess is your not quite what you say.

Casey
Guest
Casey

Don’t we all contradict ourselves though? I’d like to find one person that doesn’t contradict themself on a weekly basis. It’s in our nature. We feel different from day to day, and experience different situations. It would be quite inefficient for us to stick by one thing. At the least, her contradiction just shows how honest she is and how little she tries to bs her responses. I rarely like what she says, but it’s not because she contradicts herself…that’s just honesty.

sola
Guest
sola
maybe we do…and i can see how we can more so when we are insecure. a simple example would be (not my example just a random one we can probably relate to) when we feel skinny and sexy we may say ‘oh i love skinny bodies’ when we feel like we have put on weight but feel sexy ‘oh i love some meat on the bones’ when we feel icky skinny with no curves ‘ooo i love skinny skinny bodies. i hate fat. yuk. that girl looks big.’ and when we feel icky big ‘ooo i love meaty thighs. yuk… Read more »

Exactly Sola, your example sounds like Tyra! 😛 I admit, contradictions can be irritating because you’re trying to grasp what the person actually thinks…and with celebrities we only have what they tell us because we don’t know them. But, contradicting yourself isn’t some big evil that should be eliminated, it’s natural. People feel differently from day to day. I’d like to say, I’m contradicting myself right now. On Tyra’s post, I was like, “Why is she contradicting herself? Stop it Tyra!” But now, I don’t care. Should I have lied and fake-hated on Megan? No, I don’t feel like it!… Read more »

Katie haha your so naive. beautiful honest and real? beautiful is obvious. But how can you call some one honest or real when every single one of her interviews contradicts the others. I agree she may say what she’s thinking and it might not be how she feels. But then why say it? because she is trying so hard to create controversy by what she says. She obviously thinks it’s a smart strategy but what can you really gather about her from the interviews she has given is they are all dramatically different.

Dear Mimi please get your facts straight when it comes to quotes she actually said before you call Katie out and call her naive. I don’t even know where to start with your comment. First of all Megan always says she’s confident in TERMS OF HER PERSONALITY AND HOW SHE PROJECTS IT!!!! NOT ABOUT HER LOOKS!!!!!!She’s always said she has been quite neurotic and self loathing. ONCE when she was blatantly asked about her looks she said CLEARLY I’M NOT UGLY!!!!!!!! Coming from someone that beautiful you know she has to have some confidence issues.

omg this is SO annoying! she SAYS she second guesses herself but honestly, she seems pretty stuck up and conceited. you’ve heard about what people say about her, right? they say she’s rude and snobby and that’s exactly what she shows in this interview! a total lier is what she is! just to get people to feel bad for “poor” megan fox who has no self confidence. get a life!

gah you know she knows she’s pretty yet she still tries to sound all innocent. to me, it’s all a JOKE.

i don’t really think she sounds dumb. sometimes she says things that are unconventional and kind of “out there,” but not really stupid. i think some people react badly to it, since they either don’t get what she’s saying or are not used to people talking that way.

i dont even think she sounds ‘unconventional’…i mean ‘i love sex’ and ‘i have lesbian liasons and loved girls before’ and ‘i love dope’ and ‘i am bad ass’ (paraphrased quotes)…are not really unconventional. they are attempts to SOUND unconventional. walk into any school yard/ club these days and girls under the age of 20 are spurting things like that out here there and everywhere. not uncommon. these days its more unconventional for women to just be themselves and for femals under the age of 20 to just say ‘you know what, i like men. i dont like chicks.’ ‘i… Read more »

Hahaha you women who bash her are the reason why she’s as neurotic and introverted as she is. You further perpetuate the stereotype about women being b—y,catty and spawns of the devil!And then you wonder and don’t get women who are tomboys and aren’t interested in associating with our own sex! I understand that everyone is entitled to her opinion but damn!!!! Every time I click on a megan fox post all I see is negativity 🙁

bigvinamac
Guest

any woman that talks about what she feels about herself always get negativity. i bet none of them would say this to her face but so quick to go on the computer and call others names. i’m all for opinions but i don’t waste my time bash on someone on the internet everyday. i don’t agree what kim says but i don’t spend my time bashing her on every post. and just because she does photo shoots doesn’t mean she likes it.

sola
Guest

i dont necessarily bash what megan says, but i get sick of women saying ‘oh your so jealous’ ‘oh she’s so unconventional and different’ when really you can walk into a club and here most of the girls saying the crap she does. i get sick of people bashing people because they do have a negative opinion of her. you have a postive opinion. they have a negative. we dont all have to agree.

bigvinamac
Guest

well i never said you were jealous but because she says she doesn’t feel beautiful or have confidence doesn’t mean oh she’s looking for attention and yes there are plenty of women who bash her for the things she say. i’m all for opinions but damn every time a woman says something what they don’t like about themselves, they’re doing it for attention, blah, blah. even if she was confident in herself and says she is then she’s arrogant, stuck up. like i said you can’t win on anything you say.

I don’t think she necessarily unconventional but I do think she is different in the sense that she doesn’t try and put on a front like half of these trife a$$ actresses. And thus I never said you weren’t entitled to your opinion I just really doubt that half of these people talking all that s— on here wouldn’t say anything to her face and there is no really no sense of camaraderie between girls anymore most of them are fake. I have nothing against you Sola #imjustsaying

Camaraderie? I don’t know this girl. I have nothing invested in her. I don’t wish anything ill on her but, in truth I don’t care about her anymore than she cares about me.

People are quick to call her a hypocrite for saying the things she does, then committing contrary actions. While she’s gorgeous, she does strike me as a bit insecure with the things she says. Whether it’s a call for attention or just the honest truth, I don’t think Megan is lying necessarily. After all, she did have all those surgeries to enhance herself–why go through them if she wasn’t entirely content with herself? That aside though, I think she’s a funny person. And gorgeous.

Personally, I love Megan Fox. She’s hot. So what if she is not the greatest actress?? She isn’t the worst by far. She does say some silly stuff but nothing near as dumb as Jessica Simpson. At least Megan has a brain of her own. She likes sex, she likes crass, she has spunk. She’s the hot girl that can hang with the guys and be one of the guys while all the guys want her and that is why women hate her. Women tend to hate women who men love.

I still don’t like her. And no, I’m not jealous. I’d much rather be me than this BS-spouting nutter. It is definitely not illustrative of low self-confidence to liken herself to a Vargas girl, they are iconic. Megan is most definitely not. I don’t think it is honest or real to refer to yourself as ‘provoking a pin-up image’ because, if you say that, you just provoke the image all the more. It doesn’t really work. Also, there are ways to show ‘spunk’ and an ability to be ‘one of the boys’ whilst making all the boys want you that… Read more »

I cant usually find somtin “bad” to say bout megan cus shes stunning and each time i look at her photos i think “damn i wish i had some of her features etc”,,, but in this pic i dont get the “envy” feeling.

I kinda agree when people say she contradicts herself,,,,she does that i know.

anyways the only comfort we can get is that her plactic surgon made her this “perfect”, and blabla i know she was a pretty girl from before, but lets face it SHE WASNT this pretty.

I’m sorry but I just don’t believe her. If you don’t have confidence in yourself you don’t parade yourself around scantly clad and making ridiculous statements about how sexual you are. I can’t stand that she is just saying this for attention. She is really just minimizing the pain of the people who she already makes feel bad about themselves.

okay so let me get this straight…she hates doing photo shoots right? YET she still does like a thousand of them. she needs to stick with something if she doesn’t like something she shouldn’t do it for instead of complaining about it since it seems is the only thing she really does.
is like what she said on rolling stone magazine she wants people to know her for her “acting” not her sexy photos.
