Megan Fox is one of those actresses that men tend to fawn over -- she's probably even on the bedroom walls of most teenage boys at this very moment. But, as she tells Miami magzine, she wasn't always pretty and popular!
"I was never the pretty girl," she says of her high school years. She says she always felt like a "loner" growing up and describes her personality back then as "abrasive" and "obnoxious." Contributing to her status as a high school outcast was her endless fascination with subjects that most teenagers aren't very interested in -- like ancient civilizations!" I would love to go on a dig!" she says. And as for what she might find on said dig? She hopes it would be something that the government wouldn't want her to find -- government conspiracy theories are another subject she's fascinated by. "Come on!" she says. "You don't think everything that's learned is released to the public, do you?"
Though she still has her non-mainstream interests, Fox sure has come a long way since the days of being a "loner." She's now married to actor Brian Austin Green and has her plate full with film roles. She'll next be seen on the big screen in Friends With Kids, co-starring Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Chris O'Dowd, Ed Burns, and Adam Scott. Fox says she loved filming that movie, mainly because of the people in the cast. "I'd rather be with good people in a movie than the other way around. Most of the cast knew each other already -- Kristen and Maya are BFFs; it was such a nice, welcoming, supporting environment."
Personally, I can't wait to see Friends With Kids. That cast and creative team are like a Hollywood dream team -- it sounds like a combination of Bridesmaids and Kissing Jessica Stein. Amazing.
Do you believe that Megan Fox really wasn't pretty in high school or is she just being modest?
