"Megan Fox tells 'US Weekly' who she's slept with."

By Bob Zerull

I don’t care, but when I saw the headline “Megan Fox Reveals How Many Guys She’s Slept With” from the magazine “US Weekly,” I kept reading. Over the last three years or so Megan Fox has kind of made a mockery of herself. She reminded me of a young Angelina Jolie running around covered in tattoos making out with Billy Bob Thornton…or her brother. So when I read this title I was expecting Fox to continue to sell herself short by glamorizing how many guys she’s been with.

Surprise surprise, the headline was deceiving. I’m not going to tell you how many people she slept with because it’s really not that important. If you really care go here: “Megan Fox Reveals How Many Guys She’s Slept With.” It’s not that many. She goes on to say that she needs to be in love in order to be with someone and that the idea of a one night stand “makes (her) sick.”

This is a change of pace for Fox who clearly knows what guys want to read. Over those last three years she’s mentioned that she’s bi-sexual. She’s an Armani underwear spokeswoman and she’s done a couple of movies further promoting her sex symbol status ("In defense of Megan Fox – As good as Ellen Page in 'Juno.'").

Fox goes on to say that she regrets allowing the media to turn her into a “cartoon character.” What is more impressive is that she continues by not blaming the media for it happening, but rather herself for allowing it to happen. She is definitely an accessory to her “cartoon character” status. She seems to be making all the right choices now. Many critics would argue that Fox is nothing more than a pretty face and after the “Transformer” movies I can see their point.

That pretty face went on to carry “Jennifer’s Body” which was unfairly trashed by critics. She also went on to say that she won’t do nude scenes, which is a pretty brave decision if she’s only a pretty face. I hope Fox is able to stand by her statement. It’s a statement that many actresses before her have made (Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Kirsten Dunst, Neve Campbell, Lindsay Lohan) and it’s a statement that many actresses ultimately contradict (Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Kirsten Dunst, Neve Campbell, Lindsay Lohan). If she can manage to make it work in the male dominated Hollywood without doing nude scenes then Megan Fox will ultimately be considered more than just a pretty face.

When did Jessica Alba do a nude scene? And how come I didn't know about it?
