Here's an excerpt from the mag:
Who said she was nuts?
Megan Fox has revealed her thoughtful, sensitive side in Interview magazine’s latest issue, in which the star chats with, of all people, “The Hangover” funnyman Zach Galifianakis about the pressures of fame and how much her bad-girl image is a result of her own attempts at misdirection.
The result is a surprisingly thoughtful portrait of a woman who has been pegged as, alternately, a brat, a lunatic or an ingrate throughout the years by the media.
For example, Fox gives a reasonable explanation for her dislike for the paparazzi.
“I don’t really resent being on the red carpet as much as I do having to deal with the paparazzi,” she says. “The photographers on the red carpet, that’s their job.”
It’s a surprisingly levelheaded comment from someone who’d gone from the love interest in “Transformers 3″ to the villain of the production.
Last month, Fox was dumped from Michael Bay’s film before shooting started. Nobody can seem to settle on an official reason (Bay says she’s too skinny; Fox says she quit voluntarily; most people think she was straight-up fired), but the second it was announced (Fox was replaced by Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), everyone’s minds flashed back to an interview where Fox compared Bay as a director to dictators like Hitler and Napoleon.
A mistake, she says, that doesn’t indicate her real demeanor.
“In the past, I’ve been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality,” Fox told Galifianakis. “So I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what’s really going on in my life. So I have sort of aided the media in printing these misconceptions, which I regret.”
In any case, Fox won’t have to contend with the “Transformers” circus any longer. She’ll be appearing in this month’s “Jonah Hex” alongside Josh Brolin, and after that, it’s “Passion Play” with Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray.
Her projects after that are unclear, although IMDB has her listed as rumored to play a mermaid in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the fourth entry in Disney’s massively lucrative franchise.
So just remember: If she releases a statement saying Johnny Depp is like Kim Jong Il on set, she doesn’t really mean it, people.
