Megan Fox has been in hiding since she gave birth to her son, Noah Shannon, almost two months ago. Before that – there were very few pictures of her. I’m not sure if she didn’t want to be photographed pregnant, or what the deal was, but there aren’t many new pictures of her available. So I’m reusing older pictures, but you get the drift.
Megan is promoting her new movie, ‘This is Forty’ the kind-of-sort-of sequel to ‘Knocked Up’. The movie revolves around a married couple played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann. Megan sat down with the LA Times for an interview about the movie via Celebitchy:
On Judd Apatow signature improvisational style:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅWhatever comes to Judd, he yells it out and you do it. And itÃ¢â¬â¢s funny or itÃ¢â¬â¢s not funny. You just keep going. But I know IÃ¢â¬â¢m not gonna come up with anything better than the jokes he throws at me.Ã¢â¬Â
How Michael Bay handles improv:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅBay will yell out things for you to do with your hair or body or whatever. He yells outÃÂ instructionsÃÂ while youÃ¢â¬â¢re in the middle of the scene. Those are supposed to be more serious moments. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s sort of difficult to be in the middle of a scene when someone yells, like, Ã¢â¬ÅSay, Ã¢â¬ËNo Bumblebee, we have to get Optimus to the DaggerÃ¢â¬â¢s Tip now!Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â and youÃ¢â¬â¢re like, Ã¢â¬ËAh Ã¢â¬Â¦ let me think about it first, itÃ¢â¬â¢s not gonna come out of my mouth the right way.Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â
SheÃ¢â¬â¢s surprised that no one knows sheÃ¢â¬â¢s funny:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅItÃ¢â¬â¢s weird to me that people havenÃ¢â¬â¢t picked up on it yet that I have a sense of humor. When you read myinterviewsÃÂ from start to finish, itÃ¢â¬â¢s pretty obvious that thereÃ¢â¬â¢s a lot of sarcasm. The things that get chosen in sound bites, that run and seem literal and sound like theyÃ¢â¬â¢re very shocking, they were usually jokes, but people for whatever reason canÃ¢â¬â¢t accept the idea that I could possibly have been joking.Ã¢â¬Â
Leslie Mann on how funny Megan is:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅI was so surprised by how funny she was. She has an interesting attitude thatÃ¢â¬â¢s funÃÂ to watch. SheÃ¢â¬â¢s not actually trying to be funny. She just is. And then I had this little argument with a dad atÃÂ school. He was an agent or something and he was talking about Megan saying, Ã¢â¬ËThose girls are a dime a dozen.Ã¢â¬â¢ I got so mad! Ã¢â¬Â¦ I said, Ã¢â¬ËYouÃ¢â¬â¢re a dime a dozen!Ã¢â¬â¢ People donÃ¢â¬â¢t give her enough credit, just because sheÃ¢â¬â¢s beautiful.Ã¢â¬Â
I have heard Megan Fox claim she’s “funny” in the past. I just don’t think the girl is funny. I’ve seen her in both ‘The Dictator’ and ‘Friends With Kids’ and I think she’s completely UNFUNNY. Maybe this new movie will make me change my mind? Stranger things have happened!
