And be as skinny.

<wobbles back towards treadmill>

WaynettaSlobsLover Sun 21-Apr-13 15:27:21

You do know megan fox has had surgery?

Fargo86 Sun 21-Apr-13 15:31:18

YABU. She's vile and cannot act.

YouTheCat Sun 21-Apr-13 15:32:45

You want to be orange and plastic? confused

MeVsMadonnaVsElvis Sun 21-Apr-13 15:33:03

Vile? Bit harsh.

MeVsMadonnaVsElvis Sun 21-Apr-13 15:34:52


She looks pale to me the majority of the time. Porcelain skin.

Trust me been that skinny and beautiful isn't easy. Obviously I'm speaking from experience, fed up of film directors asking me to be her body double!

YouTheCat Sun 21-Apr-13 15:38:59

She is well orange in Transformers.

DolomitesDonkey Sun 21-Apr-13 15:42:37

Don't envy her. It's alleged she'd feel right at home in relationships. confused

MeVsMadonnaVsElvis Sun 21-Apr-13 15:46:36

It's alleged she'd feel right at home in relationships.

The relationship section of MN?


maddening Sun 21-Apr-13 15:46:45

I would like to look like Zooey Deschanel (however you spell it)

Squitten Sun 21-Apr-13 15:49:32

Oh no, not Megan Fox.

I would love Kelly Brook's figure

AmIthatSpringy Sun 21-Apr-13 15:52:27

I've decided that I would like to look like Luisana Lopilato - who is Michael Buble's wife.

She is beautiful.

I often imagine how different my life would have been if I had been even a tiny wee bit nice looking sad

squoosh Sun 21-Apr-13 15:58:30

AIBU to want to look like Megan Fox?

I think Megan Fox said the exact same thing to her plastic surgeon. That girl has changed a heckuva lot in the last few years.

If I could look like anyone I think I'd go for Catherine Deneuve circa Belle du Jour.

MeVsMadonnaVsElvis Sun 21-Apr-13 16:06:26

Damn why are women so nasty towards celebrities just because they've had cosmetic surgery?


The vast majority of women in that industry have had some kind of cosmetic work done.

Her stepson clearly loves her, she hasn't released any photos of her own son, has been with the same man since she was 18, doesn't fall out of cars drunk flashing her pants - I genuinely think she seems like a good enough person.

I was on a Wedding Forum and someone posted her wedding photo, the amount of women saying horrible things about her even then was just shocking.

FreudiansSlipper Sun 21-Apr-13 16:11:32

she has had a tiny nose job and and her teeth done, she was beautiful before still is just a little too perfect looking maybe

I would love to look like her, pig out put on a bit of weight so I would not be so perfect

YouTheCat Sun 21-Apr-13 16:14:03

I was stating fact.

I have no idea what she is like in RL.

I don't want to look like anyone else - me about 20 years ago would do though.

squoosh Sun 21-Apr-13 16:14:37

She's had far more than her nose and teeth done. It's not an attack on her, just total baffllement why someone who was so naturally gorgeous seems to be now hooked on plastic surgery and looking far older than her age.

Wishfulmakeupping Sun 21-Apr-13 16:16:14

It must be lovely to look that good though

gordyslovesheep Sun 21-Apr-13 16:16:21

maybe they are 'nasty' because these women are then held p as the epitome of 'natural' beauty when the reality is they present women with an impossible standard as it's all fake?

MeVsMadonnaVsElvis Sun 21-Apr-13 16:31:04

just total baffllement

Really? On this thread alone she has been called vile, plastic and orange.

Could you imagine that constantly?

No wonder she suffered depression.

TheRealFellatio Sun 21-Apr-13 16:33:50

I want to look like Monica Bellucci.

juneybean Sun 21-Apr-13 16:34:03

Shame, in that link she was really pretty in 2005.

squoosh Sun 21-Apr-13 16:36:12

Well obviously I can only speak for myself and what I've written. Yes I'm BAFFLED, totally baffled even, as to why a beautiful woman would have numerous pointless surgeries.

I did not call her vile, I did not call her plastic, I did not call her orange.

I will call her a terrible actress though.

RedPencils Sun 21-Apr-13 16:37:21

I wouldn't be weeping into my cornflakes if I woke up tomorrow looking like her, but I'd rather look like Eva Mendes. She's gawjusss

Naysa Sun 21-Apr-13 16:43:30

I think megan fox looks mean. I have also heard that she is a massive diva and treats crews like shit. I don't like her. Not because of how she looks, but because I don't think she's very nice

MeVsMadonnaVsElvis Sun 21-Apr-13 16:58:46

I have also heard that she is a massive diva and treats crews like shit. I don't like her


Oh right you're talking about the letter that originated from Michael Bay's own website.

The same Michael Bay who has just cast her as April in Ninja Turtles? Weird he would be that if shes such a diva.

Please don't be so naive.

MoodyDidIt Sun 21-Apr-13 17:03:24


she is STUNNING envy

surgery or no

hasnt she just had a baby as well?

YANBU. She's not my cup of tea (and personally, I don't think she looks like she's had surgery, other than maybe her nose and teeth? Her face just looks like she has lost the baby fat plumpness most people have in their late teens) but I can see why people would say that.

I'd choose Rachel Weisz as my lookylikey if I could. From about 10 years ago though, she is older than me!

squoosh Sun 21-Apr-13 17:16:16

I think Rachel Weisz gets better and better looking. I'd have a glow too I suppose if I was getting a good seeing to by Daniel Craig every day.

scottishmummy Sun 21-Apr-13 17:22:05

She's not a realistic representation of normal woman,she's had plastic surgery
She's a movie star,sprayed orange probably on weird macrobiotic no carb diet
You'll never look like her unless you get surgery,sprayed,train with a personal trainer

cocolepew Sun 21-Apr-13 17:23:11

She looks lovely in the 2005 picture.
I want to look like Eva Mendes too. Or Sofia thingymabob from Modern Family.

giveitago Sun 21-Apr-13 19:28:11

oh why? She's very orange.

specialsubject Sun 21-Apr-13 19:30:46

with sufficient money and nothing else to do, it can be done.

hope you are better at your profession, though.

Gerrof Sun 21-Apr-13 19:34:36

Crikey OP you are very defensive of a banal Hollywood starlet.

I would love to look like Gisele Bundchen or January Jones. Or Jennifer Lawrence. Or Grace Kelly. Or Catherine Zeta Jones in her Mariette days,

DolomitesDonkey Sun 21-Apr-13 20:07:12

OP - yes, it's alleged she's a domestic punchbag. sad

scottishmummy Sun 21-Apr-13 21:11:11

Shes a speak yer weight actresses from the once a tree school of acting
Her acting range is giggle ,wiggle,pout,and be kickass
Hardly accomplished

saintmerryweather Sun 21-Apr-13 21:20:35

Ive never seen the attraction with her really. Id love to look like catherine zeta jones though, she is stunning

ExRatty Sun 21-Apr-13 21:23:39

I think she's lovely.
I think that it must be hard to be that lovely.
I also think that CZJ has a Miss Piggy face

LessMissAbs Sun 21-Apr-13 21:33:22

Does Megan Fox have Asian heritage? She appears to have an epicanthic fold of the inner eyelids.

scottishmummy Sun 21-Apr-13 21:34:54

Hard to be that lovely.christ alive, hard is eking out life in recession
Astronomically paid actress of limited range she wouldn't know hard if it bit her
She's bonnie, but she's also enhanced what she's got

ExRatty Sun 21-Apr-13 21:46:02

I'm happy eaking out my living down in the dirt. I'd hate to be famous.

scottishmummy Sun 21-Apr-13 21:48:26

So don't arse lick and fawn about loaded actresses and how ard they have

ExRatty Sun 21-Apr-13 22:26:55

er whatever Scottish
I'm not fawning. I do think she is beautiful and that seems to be what is valued in acting/modelling etc.
I've no idea what her life is like but I don't imagine it's easy simply because she is paid lots of money.
I'd hate it but luckily I didn't do it or try to do it.

Naysa Mon 22-Apr-13 23:25:21


Oh right you're talking about the letter that originated from Michael Bay's own website.

The same Michael Bay who has just cast her as April in Ninja Turtles? Weird he would be that if shes such a diva.

Please don't be so naive.*

The letter wasn't written by Michael Bay, she said a couple of uncomplimentary things about him and "unnamed crew members" wrote a letter slating her.

You could definitely be like her with that shitty attitude grin

andubelievedthat Tue 23-Apr-13 00:41:38

i watched a film last eve N.Cage played lead male role dunno name of lead female ,i would like to look even slightly like her , film was about a lottery ticket win.....who cares ,N.Cage ...yummy.

ComposHat Tue 23-Apr-13 01:11:05

I've always wanted to look like Alan Bennett's gormless younger brother.

Which is lucky because...

Ibelieveyoubutmytommygundont Tue 23-Apr-13 01:49:12

The letter wasn't written by Michael Bay, she said a couple of uncomplimentary things about him and "unnamed crew members" wrote a letter slating her.

It originated from his own website .... so it was more than likely Michael Bay who wrote it.

I think it would be extremely upsetting to have those kind of things said about you and for people to blindly believe them sad

DonDrapersAltrEgoBigglesDraper Tue 23-Apr-13 02:06:44

She's lovely looking. I wouldn't mind looking like her either.

Though personally speaking, I think Aishwarya Rai and Vivien Leigh (similar-ish looking) are way more beautiful.

CheerfulYank Tue 23-Apr-13 03:24:32

Me too, Fellatio. I am stunned every time I see Monica Belluci!

I think Megan Fox seems nice, personally.

TheRealFellatio Tue 23-Apr-13 09:08:02

She is exquisite, isn't she? She looks even better on film/motion than in photos.

I am so gutted that I wasn't born looking like that. My other girl crush is Christine Hendricks. No normal human being is that pretty, surely? It should be illegal.

LaQueen Tue 23-Apr-13 09:44:02

You know, I can only speak from personal experience but really it's often a drag being beautiful...people tend to assume you must be a bit thick, and then get all huffy when they realise you're actually well educated, too... [sighs heavily...fluffs hair in mirror...]

LaQueen Tue 23-Apr-13 09:45:39

Actually, I would like to look like Natalie Portman - which aint ever going to happen, as I'm fair skinned, blonde and grey eyed...

My SIL looks uncannily like Natalie Portman, and turns heads every time she steps out the door (and she's genuinely lovely, and very clever too - the cah).

TheRealFellatio Tue 23-Apr-13 09:52:04

OMG LaQueen! You are secretly Samantha Brick aren't you? How did I not realise this before? grin

LaQueen Tue 23-Apr-13 09:59:57

[swiftly claps hand over Fell's mouth...drags her off the thread...]

scottishmummy Tue 23-Apr-13 19:34:31

No one has ever assumed I'm a bit thick nor is there a Tah-dah reveal of ability
nothing in my demeanor,behaviour or appearance would lead one to assumption I'm thick
Why do folk assume you're thick queen? are you ditzy?

LaQueen Tue 23-Apr-13 19:56:57

SM I was joshing...I don't acksherly consider myself beautiful, honest smile

And, I'm as un-ditzy, as you could ever hope to meet. I'm generally described as slightly scarey authorative and acerbic.

scottishmummy Tue 23-Apr-13 20:00:47

I know!iwas wondering if yiu had anthea turner moments all fluff and fold

LaQueen Tue 23-Apr-13 20:39:51


CheerfulYank Tue 23-Apr-13 20:46:12

People often assume I'm thick (though not as much now as when I was v blonde and thin) because my cheerfulness is often seen as ditziness.

More fool them as I'm positively radiant with cleverness. grin

hairtearing Tue 23-Apr-13 22:00:19

She has a beautiful face, I'd give organs to look like her NM limbs.

hairtearing Tue 23-Apr-13 22:14:03

I think tbh as much as pretty people protest, being attractive is generally a very easy ride for both sexes, as we live in a world consumed by superficial values,

As another poster said I wonder ,
had I ever been pretty my life would have been hugely different, you're generally treat with scorn and vitriol simply for breathing and having the audacity to be ugly in their vicinity. I think 'ugly women' have poor relationships with mothers too in general, often their mothers have a hard time dealing with having made 'an ugly child'. more so girls.

So shut yer' whinin!

scottishmummy Tue 23-Apr-13 22:22:45

Utter frasier crane box set psychodribble,tortured mums angst at making ugly wean
I hope you cut paste that opinion,rather than pondering it as if fact

hairtearing Tue 23-Apr-13 22:27:41

Its true in some cases, even just reading stuff off here some mothers are pretty mean and fathers.

scottishmummy Tue 23-Apr-13 22:39:48

sOme mothers are mean? and? should women only talk of cakes,puppies and pot pourri?

CheerfulYank Tue 23-Apr-13 22:41:41

I love cake and puppies. grin

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

hairtearing Tue 23-Apr-13 22:41:59

What is wrong with you? do you need to be so rude?
,I am simply stating things I and other people have experienced, its not wrong its just different ,

scottishmummy Tue 23-Apr-13 22:46:16

Yikes you're touchy.opine away but do expect to be's not a given
some Mothers are pretty mean- your assertion,which I rightly picked up on
That's how mn work,we post,other folk opine and not necessarily to concur

hairtearing Tue 23-Apr-13 22:48:07

But some are? its a fact I'm not wrong.

hairtearing Tue 23-Apr-13 22:48:43

I don't expect people to agree just be capable of disagreeing without being rude.

scottishmummy Tue 23-Apr-13 22:50:43

And your point is what?you see, pretty nasty, well it's subjective
Pretty nasty to you may not cut it with others. It is all opinion
I not think opining on surgically enhanced actress of limited range is mean

Plathism Tue 23-Apr-13 22:51:32

I'm stealing 'Frasier Crane box set psychodribble' scottishmummy grin

AprilAndFrank Tue 23-Apr-13 22:54:22

Yeah but most mothers genuinely think their children are the most beautiful people ever. I do have a chuckle when I read certain posts on here.

Such as my 12 year old is stunning and so into high fashion and has even walked in some fashion shows. Which basically translates as - they love Topshop and have walked in a college/school fashion show.

Hardly they are hired by Elite Model Management and walking for Vasace in Paris during Fashion Week.

scottishmummy Tue 23-Apr-13 22:54:48

Do use liberally,i get even more animated about woo hoo,homeopathy and alternative therapy

AprilAndFrank Tue 23-Apr-13 22:58:12

I not think opining on surgically enhanced actress of limited range is mean

She has more than a limited range to be fair ... have you seen her in any other film besides Transformers?

AngelinaJoliesBeard Tue 23-Apr-13 23:06:24

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.

squoosh Tue 23-Apr-13 23:12:58

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.'"

Plathism Tue 23-Apr-13 23:17:03

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

AprilAndFrank Tue 23-Apr-13 23:37:18

She's not that thin

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

BegoniaBampot Tue 23-Apr-13 23:40:29

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.

Plathism Wed 24-Apr-13 00:02:41

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.

TheCraicDealer Wed 24-Apr-13 00:09:01

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.

hairtearing Wed 24-Apr-13 09:02:17

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.

LaQueen Wed 24-Apr-13 13:41:18

"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

Plathism Wed 24-Apr-13 14:21:28

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.

LaQueen Thu 25-Apr-13 09:34:19

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.

mrsjay Thu 25-Apr-13 09:45:02

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

BOF Thu 25-Apr-13 22:29:17

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.

CheerfulYank Thu 25-Apr-13 23:38:37

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

hairtearing Fri 26-Apr-13 08:42:04

My DS looks worse on photos than irl, tbh he,s very 'pretty' would have made a better girl.

mrsjay Fri 26-Apr-13 08:45:43

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.

oh I thought i was the only 1 who thought Leo was strange looking that cute pretty thing is weird now he is older

Omg, thereal Monica Bellucci is stunning....I would also be very happy to look like Penelope Cruz though and have Javier Bardem on my arm.
