Megan Fox Overcomes On Camera Screaming Phobia For 'Jennifer's Body'

Megan Fox hides her personality under controversies

Model-turned-actress Megan Fox has claimed she hides her true self under layers of controversies.

The 23-year-old, who has often caused raised eyebrows after coming out of the closet as a bisexual or for her candid remarks, says it's just an outside persona she has created to veil her true self from getting diluted, reports gossip.ie.

"Being a celebrity is like being a sacrificial lamb. At some point, no matter how high the pedestal that they (critics and audiences) put you on, they're going to tear you down. And I created a character as an offering for the sacrifice. I'm not willing to give my true self up," she said.

"The reality is, I'm hidden amongst all the insanity. Nobody can find me," she added.

I make up another personality to give to the world

Megan Fox is tired of the Angelina Jolie comparisons. And according to Us Weekly, so is Jolie. A source to the magazine claims that “Angie has been saying, ‘That woman acts like a fool. She needs to mind her Ps and Qs. She’s saying shocking things for attention, but those things will follow her around and be reprinted forever ... I wish someone had pulled me aside when I was young and told me that. Now, I’ll forever be known as a lesbian or a self-cutter, instead of what I worked so hard to become. You have to put a muzzle on it!’”

Megan Fox admits creating fake personas

Megan Fox has confessed she has created a string of fake personalities to hoodwink people from guessing who she really is.

The 23-year-old actress revealed she deliberately makes eccentric claims and comments to conceal her true self from the world.

“I’ve learned that being a celebrity is like being a sacrificial lamb,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying in an interview with New York Times magazine.

Megan Fox recently came under fire

Megan Fox recently came under fire when she compared “Transformers” director, Michael Bay to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Fox says the comparisons to Jolie are wrong, because people take her too seriously, that they interpret her sarcasm and self-deprecating humor as serious statements. “Sarcasm doesn’t translate in print, at all…” Fox said. Megan Fox also differentiated herself from Jolie, saying she often doubts her own acting skills, something unlikely to be heard from Oscar-winning Angelina.

Megan Fox Contrasts Herself from “Tigress” Angelina Jolie

Megan Fox, the comely young star of Michael Bay’s “Transformers” movies, and more recently, “Jennifer’s Body,” spoke to Contact Music about the constant comparisons she gets to Oscar-winning actress and humanitarian activist, Angelina Jolie. Jolie appeared on the cover of Esquire magazine as their “Sexiest Woman Alive” in a see-through silver teddy, drenched in water, with a “come hither and I’ll devour you” look. Megan Fox insists she is no “tigress” like Angelina.

Megan Fox, ‘I’m not a tigress like Angelina.’

Sultry actor Megan Fox has often drawn comparisons with another Hollywood beauty Angelina Jolie. However, she is not too amused at people drawing parallels between her and Angie, according to reports in the ‘New York Times Magazine’.

Do women ‘hate’ beautiful women like Megan Fox?

Megan Fox pretty much touched on just that in her New York Times Magazine cover story from this week. In the piece, she talked about many things, including how young girls love her, but women hate her. The idea, of course, is that the girls admire and the women are jealous.

Megan Fox Overcomes On Camera Screaming Phobia For 'Jennifer's Body'

Megan Fox eventually learned to "let go" while on camera and let out a shriek, and found the results quite therapeutic.

She said: "I was phobic about screaming on camera, but I had to learn to let go.

"I don't know where the noises came from, but when I released them it was like when you break down and cry after months of bottling it up."

The star admits she really enjoyed shooting the horror comedy film as it was a departure from the parts she usually plays

The new Megan Fox movie is another cadaver palaver

This is a horror comedy in which Jennifer, a high-school vamp (Megan Fox), turns out to be quite literally a maneater.

The best line comes when her shocked best friend (Amanda Seyfried) gasps: 'You're killing people?' And Jennifer replies: 'No, I'm killing boys.'

It's meant to be campy fun, a hipper, more gruesome version of Twilight, with softcore girl-on-girl kissing and 'cool' shots of male teenagers being devoured by the hot-looking chick from the Transformers movies.megan fox latest hairstyles

Megan Fox's killer ambition

MEGAN Fox enjoyed killing her co-stars in her latest film, Jennifer's Body perhaps a little too much. "I loved all the blood and guts," she says with a sly smile. "I loved beating up all the boys and biting them."

That’s not to say she enjoyed every aspect of getting physical onscreen.

"Despite what people seem to think of me, it’s never fun kissing people you don’t know," she laughs.

"But killing them? I loved it."

In the film, penned by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno), Fox stars as Jennifer, a possessed teenager who feeds upon the bodies of the young men at her high school. It’s a plot guaranteed to have half the global male population buying a copy of it on DVD when it hits stores early next year.

Megan Fox's anger came handy!

Model-turned-actress Megan Fox said she could identify with the character in her latest outing Jennifer's Body about a cheerleader who kills and eats her classmates because like the zombie, she also holds a lot of anger within her.

The actress credits the pent-up rage inside her for helping her with the role, reports fashion.ie.

"It wasn't hard to get into character. I think everybody is angry about something in their life and I just happen to be really angry and go for it," she said.megan fox latest hairstyles

Taylor Swift Among Most Powerful Celebrities

Taylor Swift comes in at No. 12 on Forbes' 100 most powerful celebrities list, released this week. The high ranking makes the 20-year-old superstar the top-rated country musician on this list, but not the youngest celeb. Taylor's buddy Miley Cyrus has that distinction, as the 17-year-old ranks just behind Taylor at No. 13.
Other youngsters on the list include the Jonas Brothers -- made up of Taylor's ex-boyfriend Joe, age 20, Miley's ex-boyfriend Nick, age 17, plus 22-year old Kevin. The pop princes rank No. 40 on Forbes' list.

The Forbes rankings are based on stars' pre-tax earnings and visibility on social and news media outlets, and includes musicians, actors and other celebrities. Taylor achieved her ranking based on her status as the "most-played" artist on the radio during 2009, her $54 million gross from concerts during the year, and record sales, including 3.2 million sales of her 'Fearless' album and 12 million downloads.
