After playing the stereotypically catty, drop dead gorgeous most popular girl in school Carla Santini in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, smokin’ hot high school girl next door Mikaela Banes in Transformers and soon-to-be-released Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the shallow, self-involved starlet Sophie Maes in How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, drop-DEAD-gorgeous possessed high school cheerleader Jennifer Check in the upcoming release Jennifer’s Body, etc. Megan Fox wants to be taken seriously as an actress.
That’s right, Megan Fox is making a point of keeping her clothes on in future film roles based on the number of skin-baring parts she has been offered. According to several sources (including this one), the 22-year-old actress is frustrated on how many roles she is offered based on her looks rather than her acting abilities. “Megan is a talented actress and a beautiful girl but it’s the latter that seems to have become something of a problem,” a source close to Fox commented. “Megan’s far from a prude when it comes to nudity in movies, but it seems she’s expected to strip for almost every movie she’s up for. She must have had a dozen scripts come her way in which she plays a stripper. Megan is going to make a point of keeping her clothes on as long as she can.”
I understand the desire to keep your clothes on, but honestly when working in a business where women feel pressured to appear nude and then are rewarded for doing so with Oscars and additional film roles, what could a babe like Megan really expect? Does she expect a casting director looking to cast a stripper to avoid the actresses that he or she thinks are not only popular among film audiences but drop dead gorgeous, to boot? Let’s face it, ladies and gents, in Hollywood sex sells. And Megan Fox is simply oozing with sex appeal.
What do you think? Should Megan Fox continue trying to be taken seriously, or should she just play a stripper…?
