She may look otherworldly, but super-sexy movie star Megan Fox tells Moviefone she wants to appear more “human.”
In the interview, Fox, 25, says she feels that people see her as a "glorified pin-up girl.” She adds, “I feel people think I'm almost like a robot — like an android...I just don't really get portrayed as someone who has feelings or who is sympathetic… like a self-absorbed ice queen.”
Films like “Jennifer’s Body” or “Transformers” feature characters who are “not necessarily [people] you connect with." As Fox puts it, there aren't "real people necessarily who exist like that - the glossy lips in the middle of the desert.”
The actress wants to combat this image, and says she’s trying to find roles that are “more human,” like her character in the upcoming comedy “Friends with Kids.”
Fox explains that her character Mary Jane is a bit warmer than, say, “Transformers.” For one thing, she's “not a jerk or an asshole.” That's a start!
“I love working on comedy film sets,” Fox said of the experience. “They have been the most wonderful experiences and they are nice, kind, fun people.”
In addition to rehabbing her image, the actress noted another perk of doing a comedy: because of her work on “Friends with Kids,” producer Judd Apatow expressed interested in putting her in a movie.
“Friends with Kids” recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.
