What Happened To The Ingénue?
Huffington Post - about 2 months
You can be highbrow. You can be lowbrow. But can you ever just be brow? Welcome to Middlebrow, a weekly examination of pop culture. Last week, when film icon Debbie Reynolds died at 84, her New York Times obituary headline dubbed her a “Wholesome Ingénue in 1950s Films.” Quickly, lookups for the etymologically French term soared, according to Merriam- Webster. As those curious readers likely found, the Times was being slightly redundant in its description of the one-time starlet. The term “ingénue” itself ― which usually describes a wide-eyed, innocent young woman, a stage or film role depicting such a young woman, or an actress typecast as playing these roles ― denotes wholesomeness, sexual purity and naiveté, and sweetness.  When Reynolds broke into Hollywood as a teenager, she starred as girl-next-door sweethearts opposite the male matinée idols of the day in films like “Singing in the Rain” and “Bundle of Joy.” She filled a classic role at the time, guileless lead or f ...

Megan Fox Shares Angelic First Photo Of New Baby With Brian Austin Green
Huffington Post - 4 months
Megan Fox’s third pregnancy has been quite a journey ― sorry, we promise to never do that again ― but that hasn’t stopped her from sharing the love on social media. More than two months after giving birth to Journey River Green, her third child with actor Brian Austin Green, Fox shared the first photo of the family’s newest addition on Wednesday.  In the cute snap, mother and son lie side-by-side, gazing up at the camera with wide eyes. Fox left the photo sans caption, so we suppose this could be some random person’s child, but, given the family resemblance, it’s safe to say that Journey has made his Instagram debut.  A photo posted by Megan Fox (@the_native_tiger) on Oct 26, 2016 at 3:06pm PDT The pair are already parents to 4-year-old Noah Shannon and 2-year-old Bodhi Ransom, as well as Kassius, Green’s son from a previous marriage to “90210” co-star Vanessa Marcil.  Fox revealed her third baby bump at CinemaCon in Las Vegas this past April wh ...

Megan Fox Says 'The Nag, The Trophy, The Escort' Still Dominate Women's Roles
Huffington Post - 9 months
Plenty of women in Hollywood will tell you just how hard it is to find a meaningful role. The latest to speak out on the issue: Megan Fox. The "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" star (who's expecting her third child) explained in an interview with The New York Times that while she loves acting in fantasy and action movies, she doesn't "get a whole lot of say in terms of character development." "It’s not like I'm in there helping them write the script saying, 'April should do this, because this is what a real feminist would do,'" she said. "In terms of what’s available for women to play in general in Hollywood, it’s pretty scarce." Fox continued: "You have these stereotypes that still dominate films: the nag, the trophy, the escort. [Laughs.] I haven’t been sent a nag script yet, but I do get plenty of, like, 'interesting stripper.' Or, 'She’s super funny, but she’s also an escort, but that’s what makes it funny!'"  We've definitely heard that before. Fello ...

  • 2013
    Age 26
    Fox told Esquire in January 2013 that her Christian faith is still very important to her.
    More Details Hide Details She said that she still speaks in tongues; at times she has to hold back from breaking out in tongues at her current church. "I have to feel like I'm in control of my body," she said. "And I know what you're thinking, Then why would I want to go to church and speak in tongues? You have to understand, there I feel safe. I was raised to believe that you're safe in God's hands. But I don't feel safe with myself." Of the effects of media exposure, being a role model and typecast, Fox stated that she finds media attention difficult, and there have been times when people avoided being around her because they do not want to end up in the media's spotlight. She said she is not a role model for preaching to kids that sex before marriage or cursing is wrong, or about what women should be. "But if you want your girls to feel strong and intelligent and be outspoken and fight for what they think is right, then I want to be that type of role model, yeah." She said being typecast as attractive is not bad and that it can enable her to surprise people when she gives a good performance in a film, but that she is interested in portraying less sexualized characters.
    In February 2013, Fox set aside her differences with her former director Michael Bay and worked again with him on his reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014).

  • 2012
    Age 25
    Dan Clarendon of Wetpaint stated that it felt like it had "been years since we've heard about Fox"; however, her first pregnancy and additional projects such as her role in Friends with Kids brought her some attention in 2012.
    More Details Hide Details The media often comparing Fox to actress Angelina Jolie, dubbing her the "next Angelina Jolie", also affected Fox's image. The actresses have been compared partly because they each have a "tattoo collection", status as a "built in sex-symbol" and "share exotic, sultry looks". There were additionally reports that Fox was to replace Jolie in a new Lara Croft film and that Jolie was displeased by this development, but Fox indicated that these were only rumors and said that she did not want to portray the character. Fox commented that the comparisons indicate a lack of creativity on the part of the media, adding, "I am a brunette with tattoos, I curse and I have made mention of sex before. I joked about it which people find outrageous so they want to constantly compare that to her." She said, "I'm sure Jolie has no idea who I am. But if I were her, I'd be like, 'Who the fuck is this little bullshit brat who was in Transformers that's going to be the next me?' I don't want to meet her. I'd be embarrassed." Lee stated that Jolie and Fox are partly differentiated because of Jolie's "pronouncements on such subjects as the need to ban land mines in Southeast Asia or repatriate Afghan war refugees", while Zach Johnson of E! Online stated that, given various similarities between Jolie and Fox, the two may be more alike than Fox is willing to acknowledge.
    People named her one of 2012's Most Beautiful at Every Age.

  • 2010
    Age 23
    By 2010, Fox became much less prominent in the media, after starring in the less commercially successful films Jonah Hex and Passion Play.
    More Details Hide Details
    The couple married on June 24, 2010 in a private ceremony at the Four Seasons Resort on Maui.
    More Details Hide Details They have two sons: Noah Shannon Green (born September 27, 2012) and Bodhi Ransom Green (born February 12, 2014). Through her marriage, Fox is also a stepmother to Green's son Kassius (born March 2002), from his past relationship with actress Vanessa Marcil.
  • 2009
    Age 22
    Fox's public image came under scrutiny when, on September 11, 2009, an unsigned letter from three crew members of Transformers defended Michael Bay against accusations made by Fox about his on-set behavior, including a comparison with Hitler.
    More Details Hide Details The letter alleges that Fox is unpleasant to work with on set and makes several accusations of ungracious behavior that are at variance with her public persona. Bay defended Fox, stating he does not condone the letter, and that while he also does not condone Fox's "outlandish quotes", it is "her crazy quips" that "are part of her crazy charm. The fact of the matter is I still love working with her, and I know we still get along." Anthony Steinhart, a production assistant who worked on Transformers, also came out in her defense, stating that he had never " witnessed Ms. Fox being rude or inconsiderate of people’s feelings or the work to be done".
    In response to the boycott, Fox told magazine Nylon, in a September 2009 interview, that "the media blitz" for Transformers resulted in an over-extension of her welcome in the media. "I was part of a movie that studio wanted to make sure would make $700 million, so they oversaturated the media with their stars," she said. "I don't want to have people get completely sick of me before I’ve ever even done something legitimate."
    More Details Hide Details Chris Lee of the Los Angeles Times called Fox a "sex symbol of the highest order" and added that she is "a woman whose hotness has become emblematic of a specific era. Call Megan Fox the first bona fide sex symbol of the 21st century." Some of Fox's various magazine covers include Maxim in 2007; Cosmo Girl, Paw Print, Jack (ITALY), FHM (UK), and GQ in 2008; and USA Weekend, Esquire, Empire, Maxim, GQ (UK), Entertainment Weekly and ELLE in 2009. She has been featured on "hottest" and "most beautiful woman" lists throughout the years, notably Maxims Hot 100 lists and when FHM readers voted her the "Sexiest Woman in the World" in 2008.
    Fox's overexposure in the media caused several men's websites to boycott her in late 2009, with AOL's man-blog Asylum dubbing August 4, 2009 "A Day Without Megan Fox" and promising that they would not mention or feature her on this day; they asked other men's sites to copy this stance, and several, including AskMen, complied.
    More Details Hide Details There was sentiment that despite the amount of traffic Fox can bring to a website, it was time to focus attention on another young actress. Other sites, however, refused to boycott Fox, with Asylum's sister site PopEater declaring "we're posting things about Megan Fox that aren't even news, just because we know you want it, whether you'll admit it or not" and Coedmagazine calling the boycott a "publicity stunt" and "hypocritical", saying that they were the home of "The Megan Fox Boycott Boycott". The British newspaper The Sun declared August 4 to be "Megan Fox Day", saying that "She deserves a day dedicated to her".
    Bay said in June 2009 that Fox was fired on orders of executive producer Steven Spielberg, a claim which Spielberg denied.
    More Details Hide Details
    In the June 2009 issue of Elle, she revealed that she somewhat distorted the events of her relationship with the stripper, saying she has given certain male writers "an amped-up version" of her past – "They're boys; they're easily toyed with.
    More Details Hide Details I tell stories and have them eating out of my hand. Not all of it is true. In fact, most of it is bullshit." Fox said, "I never said she was my girlfriend! I just said that I loved her, and I did love her. The real story is more sobering. It's not a sexy, fun-time, fantasy story. But that's not the story you tell GQ." Fox has a form of brachydactyly called clubbed thumb, and has discussed her obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), insecurities, self-harming, and has acknowledged that she has low self-esteem. She stated of her OCD, "This is a sickness, I have an illness—this is not OK anymore."
    In May 2009, she confirmed her bisexuality, stating: "I have no question in my mind about being bisexual.
    More Details Hide Details But I'm also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I'd never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man."
    In March 2009, Variety reported that Fox was set to star as the lead role of Aspen Matthews in the film adaptation of the comic book Fathom which she will also co-produce with Brian Austin Green.
    More Details Hide Details Fox appeared with Dominic Monaghan in the music video for Eminem and Rihanna's single "Love the Way You Lie".
    In April 2009, she began filming Jonah Hex, in which she portrayed Leila (Tallulah Black), a gun-wielding beauty and Jonah Hex's (Josh Brolin) love interest.
    More Details Hide Details The film was released on June 18, 2010. Despite receiving top billing, Fox described her role in the film as being a cameo. Jonah Hex was a critical and commercial failure in the U.S., with its international distribution cancelled after its poor performance. The film was named the "worst picture of the year" by the Houston Film Critics Society. Fox next starred alongside Mickey Rourke in Passion Play. The film's poor reception at the Toronto Film festival led to its conventional theatrical distribution being bypassed for a direct-to-video release, with only two screens briefly showing the film to fulfill contractual obligations. Mickey Rourke remarked that Passion Play was "terrible. Another terrible movie." Fox was the voice of the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins in the Na Nai'a Legend of the Dolphins, a 3D documentary film. The story is told by a cast including Kate Winslet, Ellen Page, Gerard Butler, James Franco, Julian Lennon, Diego Luna, Cheech Marin, Whoopi Goldberg, Isabella Rossellini and Daryl Hannah.
    In 2009, Fox had her first lead role since the Transformers series; she portrayed the title character in Jennifer's Body, written by Academy Award–winning screenwriter Diablo Cody.

The film was released worldwide on June 24, 2009.
