Megan Fox upset people think she is Dumb

"I resent having to prove that I'm not a retard."

This was a recent statement by Megan Fox when she was comparing herself to Scarlett Johansson's in interviews.

Well, Miss Fox, when you market yourself solely through your body, and your credits don't include any film where you actually had to, I don't know, approach the threshold of doing some acting, what do you expect?

I mean, think about it. Scarlett Johannson has done a lot of bad movies over the years. More than her fair share really, but she does have some quality pictures on her list of credits as well... you know, the kind of roles that win you little statues and plaques and critical accolades. Most of those roles are far in her past in Hollywood terms, but still, she has those things.

Fox on the otherhand was the replacement actress for the older daughter role on a sitcom starring Kelly Ripa and Ted McGinley.

I guess I am sort weird because I never really understood this fascination that Hollywood seems to have with Megan Fox. I mean, there were so many other actresses in her age group that were seemingly just as attractive and fit, but somehow, the very act of her bending over and working on a car in a Michael Bay epic somehow catapulted her into superstardom.

And just as a laugh, I wanted to see how high a picture from that particular scene ranked on Google Images for the term Megan Fox, and you know what... it was the fifth image on the list, which says a lot, through the first four said a lot more (they were photos from a men's magazine).

So, Miss Fox, you want to be taken seriously? Do some better movies. It is as simple as that. Let your work do that talking. Prove that you actually have some substance and aren't just a flash in the pan, or even someone to pan because you flash.

No one is expecting you to be Meryl Streep, but come on, if you want people to take you seriously, then do something that they have to take you seriously for. It is not that hard of a concept to grasp. Just telling people they should take you seriously doesn't work.

At All. I've tried it with less than desired results.

So stop bitching about being treated like you are dolt and prove people wrong. And if you can't do that, well, still stop bitching, as I am sure the people who were upset by Tropic Thunder's use of the word retard have your publicist's phone number on speed dial.

Leave my girlfriend alone, man.

She is a disgrace to The Name. Except for that tummy, that is...

I think it is sort of funny that the two people who commented on this together make up the name Megan Fox.

She's been making a lot of stupid statements of late. While I find Megan Fox extremely hot, she can't act and she's not that smart either.

But if Megan Fox is reading this, call me.

I'm giving her another ten years and she'll be gone.

10? I give her 5.
