Megan Fox Disses Lindsay Lohan, Talks Leprechauns

0115_megan_launch
Update: Megan Fox just posted about the Lohan quote on her Facebook page.

"In the newly released article that I did for Esquire, there is a reference that is made to Lindsay Lohan that I would like to clarify before it snowballs into something silly. I attempted to draw parallels between Lindsay and Marilyn in order to illustrate my point that while Marilyn may be an icon now, sadly she was not respected and taken seriously while she was still living.

Both women were gifted actresses, whose natural talent was lost amongst the chaos and incessant media scrutiny surrounding their lifestyles and their difficulties adhering to studio schedules etc. I intended for this to be a factual comparison of two women with similar experiences in Hollywood. Unfortunately it turned into me offering up what is really much more of an uneducated opinion.

It was most definitely not my intention to criticize or degrade Lindsay. I would never want her to feel bullied, as she does not deserve that. I was not always speaking eloquently during this interview and this miscommunication is my fault.

Megan Fox
believes Lindsay Lohan has "squandered" her career. She also believes in leprechauns.

In a bizarre interview with Esquire magazine, the sexy actress talks about everything from her "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" costar and the price of fame to aliens, Bigfoot and pots 'o gold at the end of the rainbow.

While the chat is all over the place, the best part is Fox explaining why she got her Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed.

"She [Marilyn] was sort of like Lindsay [Lohan]. She was an actress who wasn't reliable, who almost wasn't insurable ... She had all the potential in the world, and it was squandered," says Megan. "I'm not interested in following in those footsteps."

Ouch, right?

See what other wild soundbites she gave the magazine below and check out how the actress has changed through the years in the gallery above.

On the harshness of fame:

"I don't think people understand. They all think we should shut the f***k up and stop complaining because you live in a big house or you drive a Bentley. 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 her sexy, half-naked image:

"I felt powerless in that image. I didn't feel powerful. It ate every other part of my personality, not for me but for how people saw me, because there was nothing else to see or know. That devalued me. Because I wasn't anything. I was an image. I was a picture. I was a pose."

(Interesting to note, she's in her underwear in every shot of the Esquire spread)

On her belief in otherworldly creatures:

"I like believing. I believe in all of these Irish myths, like leprechauns. Not the pot of gold, not the Lucky Charms leprechauns. But maybe was there something in the traditional sense? I believe that this stuff came from somewhere other than people's imaginations...."

And:
"Loch Ness monster — there's something to it."

Also:
"I believe in aliens."
