Megan Fox: I'm not an android

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.

    Just because people still like seeing the old you under the hood of an old Camero, it doesn't mean anyway wants to see what you've done since then. Get rid of the cheek implants, stop botoxing your face into wood, and quit blowing up your lips like you expect to need them as a life preserver. Once your face can physically emote, it might be easier to get roles as a human.

    First, she is the 1 constantly talking about how her beauty prevents her from being precieved as real, second, she Chose the roles she's complaining about, no1 forced them on her! She needs to chill & be real for a while, then people may find her more approchable!!

  10. SO WHAT?

    @lmao... Oh no darling, that is not the case... I am pretty and very slender... Megan Fox is gorgeous, dont get me wrong... But her complaint about her beauty is pathetic!!!! maybe if she wasnt flaunting herself around in mini skirts in these movies, people would take her seriously... She came into the business to be a hot pin up girl, not to be an oscar winner!!!

    • Truth Hurts @ SO WHAT?

      Pretty easy to make up stories about yourself behind the computer, am I correct?

      If you have time to sit there and be critical about someone else over the internet (it's a celebrity for goodness sakes), you really aren't that pretty, whether it be outer beauty, or inner beauty.

      "lmao" described you with perfect accuracy.

    No, Captain, not an android, a "Plastoid". Androids are built for a specific purpose. This organism's purpose seems to be to continually change its appearance for no good reason. Interesting....

    If she wanted people to care more about her insides and feelings she wouldn't go out and get plastic surgery everyday of her life. She looks completely different from when she first got into the business. I used to like her until she changed like all the other celebrties and got plastic surgery. She doesnt have any self respect for herself nor does she care about her own feelings because being beautiful and gorgeous doesn't mean having to get plastic surgery and botox as much times as people change their underwear. She's not even hot anymore, now she just looks like a barbie doll except you can't see barbies botox injection points.
