“So just who is Megan Fox and why is the world so crazy about the fact that you can see her in the buff? Well Megan is an actress who began her career as a teenager with a recurring role in the television show “Hope and Faith.” Her full name is Megan Denise Fox and she was born May 16, 1986.
In 2004, she co-starred in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen together with Lindsay Lohan.
She has frequently been listed as one of the hottest of the hot babes when it comes to Hollywood by several men’s magazines including GQ, Maxim and FHM (where she was voted the hottest babe in the world – quite the compliment if I do say so myself).
Fox has also become a role model for young girls, which is one of the reasons the recent controversy over the nude pictures of her has made such a splash. She was somewhat evasive when she was interviewed by the Times about the role of a role model, saying, “”it depends on what your idea of a role model is,”” and continued with, “”If your idea of a role model is somebody who’s gonna preach to your kids that sex before marriage is wrong and cursing is wrong and women should be this and be that, then I’m not a role model. But if you want your girls to feel strong and intelligent and be outspoken and fight for what they think is right, then I want to be that type of role model, yeah.””
She certainly doesn’t seem to have a problem with being a type of role model although one wonders about it since she basically has been typecast as the babe in many movies. The thing about that is that if you’re going to be typecast as a babe then the role model thing kind of goes out the window. You can’t really make girls feel strong and confident about themselves when you yourself are saying that what you do is only related to how beautiful you look. Not every girl is going to grow up to be a Megan Fox after all.
With her newest movie, Jennifer’s Body, it is unclear what kind of a message Megan Fox is trying to offer to young girls considering that she not only plays the babe in the movie, but actually is the villain and in fact gets naked as well, using her body to advantage instead of her brain.
