There is something about Megan Fox that continues to keep her in our headlines — it appears as if she has become self aware, almost like SkyNet, only hotter. In fact, her awareness of her own purpose in the world seems to be ready to pique. With the success of her bare midriff in Transformers, she seems to have turned up the heat — and who are we to complain. Those moments in between the terribly delivered dialog where all she is required to do is exist and be attractive are some of the best bits of acting we will ever see her do, hands down.
Take for example, the following clip from her upcoming film How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, in which she speaks but one line of dialog in the entire 30 second spot — and it works brilliantly. Enjoy below.

Absolutely hilarious, wouldn’t you agree? If the rest of the film works like this, we are in for a treat. Also, as you might have noticed, the rest of the cast is solid — Simon Pegg, Kirsten Dunst, Danny Huston, Gillian Anderson and Jeff Bridges.
On a related but unrelated note, there was also this story that came out of the film’s production (from WENN):
Hollywood actress Kirsten Dunst banned a writer from the set of her new movie after he allegedly criticised her acting ability.
British novelist Toby Young wrote the book on which the actress’s new film – How to Lose Friends & Alienate People - is based, and visited the set on several occasions.
And on his second visit, Young made comments regarding Dunst’s performance to a producer – and it led to the actress asking movie bosses to bar him from the studio.
Young says, “She overheard me giving the producer a note on her performance in a particular scene. At the time, I didn’t think of it as a criticism, more as a helpful bit of advice, and the producer took it in that spirit.
“But Kirsten overheard this exchange and interpreted it as a complaint about her acting ability. It was after this, apparently, that she took Bob (Weide, the director) to one side and asked if I could be kept at arms length in future.
“Bob carried out this edict with a good deal of tact. I didn’t realise it, but this was, in effect, Bob carrying out Kirsten’s instructions.”
That should make a lot of Kirsten Dunst haters happy. How to Lose Friends & Alienate People is in theaters on October 3rd.
