I think Megan Fox is lurvely. She was very pretty in Jennifer's Body. I'm not too sure about what she's done to her face recently though. I might have to convert back to lusting after Natalie Portman.

There was a brilliantly awful interview with Megan Fox in Esquire. To be fair the hilarity mostly came from the journalist and not Megan herself. It contains such gems as

"The symmetry of her face, up close, is genuinely shocking. The lip on the left curves exactly the same way as the lip on the right. The eyes match exactly. The brow is in perfect balance, like a problem of logic, like a visual labyrinth. It's not really even that beautiful. It's closer to the sublime, a force of nature, the patterns of waves crisscrossing a lake, snow avalanching down the side of a mountain, an elaborately camouflaged butterfly. What she is is flawless. There is absolutely nothing wrong with her."

"She would much rather be an archeologist exploring the ancient ruins of Israel and Egypt. 'I feel like there's stuff literally buried there and buried where the Maya were,' she says. Ancient aliens who gave rise to ancient civilisations on earth. 'I would like to uncover the secrets of the universe. In my fantasy.'"

Oh please, you can be that size without a tapeworm! She's not that thin.

She's not that thin

She was very thin in Jennifers Body (99lbs) and was made to put on weight during Transformers.

I don't think she is the most beautiful but I think the slagging she gets isn't fair. She seems private and quite humble and mostly about her family. her candid pics are always natural and dressed down and she isn't orange, she is usually quite pale. I don't believe the Michael Bay thing - sounds like a couple of brats on set decided to take her down a peg or two, maybe she didn't laugh at their crap jokes or something.

99lbs? How do we know this? She doesn't look that thin in Jennifers Body, but I can see why they'd want her to have more curves for Transformers.

My point is people can be very slim yet still healthy without being on fad diets or needing tapeworms or surgery, if they exercise hard and don't overeat. It just annoys me how every fatless female celebrity is considered to be doing something bizarre and unattainable to their body.

Google "Megan Fox's thumbs"- you will never feel jealous again.

I'm alright looking. By that I mean I wasn't hit with the ugly stick but at the same time no-one's ever going to have a fight over me in a pub car park. Sometimes I think I'd love to have thicker hair, plumper lips, defined ankles.... But today on the front of a few papers there was a very sober reminder of how beauty doesn't equate to happiness. A medical student in her early twenties, a really gorgeous stunning girl, who suffered from depression and bulimia and killed herself using a pesticide in an effort to burn calories. Being beautiful's probably alright, but doesn't necessarily mean you'll always be content.

Megan Fox is hardly anorexic their are far more worryingly thin people, I think I remember when Nicole Richie was scarily tiny but even then didn't look horrendous Just needed to put on some weight.

AngelinaJoliesBeard Wed 24-Apr-13 09:28:45

Nowt wrong with thumbs like that craic. Do you often make fun of genetic anomalies?

TheCraicDealer Wed 24-Apr-13 09:49:36

If you read on, I was making the point that no-one's perfect!

AngelinaJoliesBeard Wed 24-Apr-13 09:53:40

Even if I read on I still see you saying if you google her thumbs you won't be jealous anymore. Like her thumbs make her less desirable or something.

TheCraicDealer Wed 24-Apr-13 09:57:58

No. I am saying that it doesn't matter how other people think you look, there will always be some small part of you that causes an insecurity or something that makes you unhappy.

AngelinaJoliesBeard Wed 24-Apr-13 10:04:55

So you do that by pointing out to people that they won't be jealous anymore if they see her thumbs? Poor logic.

TheCraicDealer Wed 24-Apr-13 10:13:24

If you say so.

BegoniaBampot Wed 24-Apr-13 10:45:45

I thought you were poking fun at her because of her thumbs to bring her down a peg or two TBH.

"Do any mothers actually think their children are ugly, though?"

CY yep, DD2 was fugly, there was no point denying it.

I was most affronted because DD1 had been beautiful from the day she was born...but DD2...sigh... she was a pug-faced, dribbling, squinting little lump [shrugs]

However, when she turned 3 she started getting pretty - and nowadays, has huge brown, doe-eyes, a pointed chin and a perfect nose smile

My mum thought both me and my brother were ugly, and we were. Hideous scrawny little things with goblin faces. We are gorgeous now though grin

ComposHat Wed 24-Apr-13 16:56:23

Yep my mother thought I was an extrodiarily ugly baby - she did have a point, I was very red and had ginger hair. In pictures I looked like a haemariod in a Jimmy wig.

My son looked like an old man too me when he was born. He would pull some ugly faces too. When he yawned he looked like a turtle.

My sister when she was a baby looked weird. She looked all screwed up

hairtearing Wed 24-Apr-13 17:44:23

My eldest was an absolute cutie still is in a very conventional way, blonde olive,blue eyes thick black eyelashes. My youngest although cute has a squished OAP look about him.

My Mum used to get annoyed when people remarked that my DB was a lovely baby - because she knew damned well that he wasn't.

He was hugely fat, with a sullen expression. I know, I have seen the photos.

We pull no punches in this family, and tell it like it is...I was aware from a very young age, that I had been a beautiful baby, and a beautiful toddler...but, by the age of 7 hadn't really fulfilled my earlier expected potential...

My Mum always tells me I'm very attractive - but, then never fails to add But you did use to be so beautiful, when you were a little girl hmm

Thanks Mum.

I want to look like beyonce but i am the wrong colour for a start grin

My little brother was an absolutely gorgeous baby. He still kind of looks like that, but it's weird on an adult, like Leonardo DiCaprio just being an inflated version of the cutie he was as a teenager.

Anyway, my mum had a Caesarian and was put back in a different bed on the ward, with another woman's name at the end. So when she came round, she was handed another woman's baby hmm, and was finding it hard to bond, as she thought he was ugly a bit unusual-looking. The shift of nurses changed back, the mistake was rectified, and she fell in love instantly with my little brother. Apparently, even the real mother called the other baby "Froggy" grin.

I thought DS was remarkably adorable as a newborn, but photographic evidence implies otherwise.

And I think he's just gawjus now except when DH allowed stupid BIL to shave his head ...wonder if he actually is? smile
