Megan Fox told ESQUIRE on fame: ‘I don’t think people understand. They all think we should shut the fuck up and stop complaining because you live in a big house or you drive a Bentley. So your life must be so great. What people don’t
realize is that fame, whatever your worst experience in high school, when you were being bullied by those ten kids in high school, fame is that, but on a global scale, where you’re being bullied by millions of people constantly.’
On how she doesn’t idolize Marilyn Monroe anymore. ‘I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult. It’s like when you visualize something for your future. I didn’t want to visualize something so negative. She wasn’t powerful at the time. She was sort of like Lindsay.
She was an actress who wasn’t reliable, who almost wasn’t insurable.. She had all the potential in the world, it was squandered. I’m not interested in following in those footsteps.’ Then who? ‘Ava Gardner. She had power. She was a broad. She got what she wanted and said what she needed.’
