Megan Fox Transforms From “Android Ice Queen” to Relatable Person.

 

From an interview with Megan Fox on Moviefone:

“[Interviewer] This role seems to…

“[Fox] Make me seem human?…

“I just think the idea is that because most of the way that people have seen me, it’s the glorified pin-up girl with motorcycle boots who is also fighting to save the world. It’s not necessarily someone who you connect with because they’re not real people necessarily who exist like that—the glossy lips in the middle of the desert… You don’t necessarily see the human side of whoever is playing that person. And I just think [in] the media, in general, I just don’t really get portrayed as someone who has feelings or who is sympathetic. Or I sort of am portrayed as this—I feel—like a self-absorbed ice queen.

I feel people think I’m almost like a robot—like an android. And that I’m all about me and my thoughts are all about me. That I want to be famous.”

I can relate to these feelings expressed by Fox, albeit on a much smaller scale. I’m often accused of being a bitchy ice queen with no feelings because I choose not to express them in public. I feel like I’m also torn between citing my opinions and ideas and being attention-seeking or, at least, I think this is how people perceive my actions. I try not to let these things get the best of me, and it seems Fox subscribes to a similar school of thought. I can’t imagine how hard it would be for her to be dragged through the mud in the tabloids and the blogs when, to me, she seems like a genuine, relatable person, especially in this interview.

What do you think?

  1. I have a feeling that in real life, we’d get along super! However, I too have issues with being emotional in public (and sometimes even in private!). People always say I’m hard to read and unapproachable (something even employers tell me! Imagine! Your boss telling you you’re unapproachable!) I don’t want to be seen as an attention seeker, so I often let other people do the talking. And I don’t see the point in being emotional, because I’m much more practical. I’d rather get past my emotions, and work through the problem. Apparently, this makes me like a guy? Or, as you say, an ice queen.
    I love Megan Fox! All her quotes get taken out of context because it sounds better that way.

  2. Haha, I, too, have often been likened to a guy, emotion-wise. I don’t really see it as a bad thing, because I’d rather keep my emotions in check than be a blubbering mess at the first sign of conflict, confrontation, a sad movie etc. However, it kind of comes back to that notion that circulating through the blogosphere at the moment: that saying you’re more like a guy than a girl and that girly things are beyond you and how that is a disservice to other women and feminism.
