Megan Fox is sick of being one of Hollywood’s sexiest women and is ready to be taken more seriously. She says this while she’s flaunting major cleavage on the cover of Esquire magazine, which totally makes sense. (That last statement was heavy on the sarcasm…)

Talking about her on-screen roles as a sex symbol in films like in Transformers, Megan said, “I felt powerless in that image. I didn’t feel powerful. It ate every other part of my personality, not for me but for how people saw me, because there was nothing else to see or know. That devalued me. Because I wasn’t anything. I was an imagine. I was a picture. I was a pose.”

While we admit she did play a brunette bombshell pretty expertly, the new mom is separating herself from that image by taking on comedic roles in This is 40 and Friends With Kids. But no matter how hard she tries to tear herself from her old image, Megan is well-aware of what’s said about her in the media. While she tries to put on a “I don’t give a f**k” attitude, it still hurts.

"I don't think people understand," she explains. "They all think we should shut the f**k up and stop complaining because you live in a big house or you drive a Bentley. So your life must be so great. What people don't realize is that fame, whatever your worst experience in high school, when you were being bullied by those ten kids in high school, fame is that, but on a global scale, where you're being bullied by millions of people constantly."

Ah, the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

What do you think about Megan’s comments of being a sex symbol?
