Here we go again.
Megan Fox has a new movie to promote, so she has opened up her treasure chest of crazy sound bites yet again, this time in the new issue of Rolling Stone. In addition to her usual musings about how director Michael Bay is a jerk and what it was like to kiss Amanda Seyfried, Fox addresses questions about self-mutilation, eating disorders and how she was 12 when she first got attention from older men. Check out but a small sampling of the interview below, and of course you can read the whole story in the October issue of Rolling Stone.
On kissing Amanda Seyfried:
Amanda was not excited about having to do it, but I went for it. Clearly I can't argue that it's not gratuitous, because it is. We both look like children, so it looks like crazy kiddie porn. There's no music—it's just silence and the sound of spit. I feel weird watching it. It was just really uncomfortable. I felt like I was witnessing something I'm not meant to see.
On whether she's dabbled in self-mutilation:
Yeah, but I don't want to elaborate. I would never call myself a cutter. Girls go through different phases when they're growing up, when they're miserable and do different things, whether it's an eating disorder or they dabble in cutting.
On whether she's had an eating disorder:
Not that I would want to talk about. If I did talk about it, I'd be taking on a role-model status, and I'd have to choose my words very carefully, and I'd have to make sure I reveal it in a specific way, and I don't want to do it.
On how she views herself:
I see myself. I see what I look like, but there are things that I like and things that I dislike. My hair is good. The color of my eyes is good, obviously. I don't have things that are hideous. I'm too short. I'm naturally more sturdy. But overall, I'm not superexcited about the whole thing.
On her temper and self-loathing:
I'm really insecure about everything. I never think I'm worthy of anything. I have a sick feeling of being mocked all the time. I have a lot of self-loathing. Self-loathing doesn't keep me from being happy. I have a lot of things to be happy about. But that doesn't mean I don't struggle. I am very vulnerable. But I can be aggressive, hurtful, domineering and selfish, too. I'm emotionally unpredictable and all over the place. I'm a control freak. My temper is ridiculously bad. I've destroyed the house. I go bats---. I've had to say to Brian [Austin Green, her boyfriend], 'You have to go and stop talking to me, because I'm going to kill you. I'm going to stab you with something. Please leave.' I'd never own a gun for that reason. I wouldn't shoot to kill. But I would shoot him in the leg, for sure."
On her sexiness:
I was 12 when I first started getting attention from grown men, and for a while I misused that power. When you see 16-year-old girls in really short skirts and stripper heels and shirts that say "White Trash Whore" on them - I was like that. But it's not empowering. It's the opposite. It's taking power away from you.
On being a serial monogamist:
I can never have sex with someone that I don't love, ever, ever, ever. The idea makes me sick. I've never even come close to having a one-night stand. I'd be terrified. I wouldn't enjoy anything about it. I'm not sexually promiscuous. I've only been single for the seven-month period between my first boyfriend and the one I have now. I'm a serial monogamist. There's nothing about being single that I enjoy.
