We can probably chalk this one up as the most ridiculous, yet oddly intriguing thing that we will report all day. Sure, there will be other stories that will be more serious, but none will be this… uh… thought provoking. Imagine, if you will, Megan Fox starring in an NC-17 version of a Mother Teresa biopic, one that involves her struggle with forbidden love. Imagine how potentially provocative, yet utterly ridiculous that would be. Then, watch this trailer:

Of course, this isn’t at all real. This is just another in the long movie-within-a-movie marketing schemes that seem to be all the rage lately. Most recently. we saw Tropic Thunder go all-out, putting up websites, trailers and even star pages for its characters. And now, to help promote Megan’s upcoming film How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, MGM has launched an international website for Teresa: The Making of a Saint, the NC-17 lust-fest that star’s Fox’s character, Sophie Maes.
The film also stars Kirsten Dunst, Jeff Bridges and Simon Pegg. It is based on the memoir “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People” by Toby Young, telling the story of a British writer who struggles to fit in at a high-profile New York Magazine. In the film, Megan Fox plays — you guessed it — a hot actress. For her, there is no better role.
