Megan Fox, role model: ‘Wonder Woman is a lame superhero’

mtv awards arrivals 12 010609
According to the British tabloids, Megan Fox spent four hours getting ready for the MTV Awards on Sunday. Four whole hours to not shower, slick back her dirty, greasy hair and fit herself into a cocktail dress. Which reminds me of that old saying - “It takes a lot of money to look this cheap.” According to a source, “Megan was in a complete state… She was red in the face and convinced she was having a fat day. Luckily she eventually found the perfect one.” Megan herself tweeted about her poorly-received look, “The awards were great… Sorry if you didn’t like my hair. Opinions are opinions.”

That’s all just the precursor to Megan’s latest interview. The girl who compared all actors to prostitutes and came out with the now infamous statement “I resent having to prove that I’m not a retard” is now claiming that she wants to be, and is, a role model to young women. Megan says that she’s not interested in being a “preachy” role model, but rather a role model that is “strong and intelligent and be outspoken and fight for what they think is right.” Uh… fight for what exactly? The right to pose for Maxim? She also has some stuff to say about the lameness (lamertude?) of Wonder Woman. What a bitch:

Fox is just as careful not to overstep her abilities when it comes to her career. She might not fit the butter-wouldn’t-melt mould of stars such as Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley, but she reckons she’s a role model of sorts for young women.

“It depends on what your idea of a role model is,” she says. “If your idea of a role model is somebody who’s gonna preach to your kids that sex before marriage is wrong and cursing is wrong and women should be this and be that, then I’m not a role model. But if you want your girls to feel strong and intelligent and be outspoken and fight for what they think is right, then I want to be that type of role model, yeah.”

Fox reportedly turned down the chance to take over from Jolie (the two are strikingly similar, down to their mutual love of tatoos) as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider series, and says she has no intention of starring in a Wonder Woman movie, despite recent speculation.

“Wonder Woman is a lame superhero,” she says, clearly unfazed at the thought of ruling herself out of a potentially career-making franchise. “She flies around in her invisible jet and her weaponry is a lasso that makes you tell the truth. I just don’t get it. Somebody has a big challenge on their hands whoever takes that role but I don’t want to do it.”

“Hollywood is the most superficial thing you could possibly be a part of,” she says. “And if I weren’t attractive I wouldn’t be working at all.”

Ask if she’s afraid of typecasting and she pouts defiantly. “Getting typecast as what? Attractive? How bad is that?” she counters. “That’s not really a bad thing. If people want to look at me like that I find it flattering. And it gives me an advantage because people don’t expect anything from me. If I show up and give any sort of performance at all, even a mediocre one, everyone will walk away going, ‘Holy shit! Megan did a great job in that movie!’ So I’m an overachiever just by default because of the category I’ve been put in.”

Wonder Woman is awesome! She can fly, she has a cool outfit, and even her accessories have superpowers! What is Megan thinking? Megan is also contradicting early statements she made about her “beauty” - just a few weeks ago if anyone tried to tell her she was too pretty for a part, she would have gone off on an obscene tirade. Now she’s very chilled out about the whole thing. And I don’t think it’s because she’s an “overachiever”.
