Megan Fox Didn’t Actually Say That Awful Thing

Refresher: Megan Fox landed the April cover of Jalouse (that’s it, up there). The magazine quoted her as saying this deeply unfortunate thing: “I live well with my image, I cannot complain, I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl.” Although Megan Fox has smashed her foot in her mouth a few times before, it sounded pretty stilted/obviously a translation. Moreover, she’s always seemed pretty self-deprecating in interviews.

…Still, you’re welcome to picture Fox with a monocle, sitting in a leather chair, primly sniffing, “I cannot complain.”

Soon after, Fox contested it on her Facebook page, saying: “The actual comment, the context and it’s intention are grossly distorted and misrepresented here. I gave this interview in English obviously, it was then translated to French and now back into English. I’ve never made vapid self serving comments and in contradiction am uncontrollably self deprecating.”

Now, months later (the quote first made the rounds late March), Jalouse has retracted it. Again, via Fox’s Facebook: “In a Jalouse cover story featuring Ms. Megan Fox, we unfortunately misquoted Ms. Fox. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

If only the retraction could cause a publicity frenzy to rival the initial quote.

      Is that, like, dick stigmatized? Or dick traumatized? And why am I laughing so hard?

    So what if she said it? Does anybody really think a woman WANTS to be less attractive? Please, people need to get realistic
