Megan Fox: ‘I’m a Role Model For Strong Women’

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Megan FoxMegan Fox thinks she’s a role model for strong, young women.

The Transformers star — who recently likened herself to a prostitute — wants to help teenage girls “feel strong and intelligent and be outspoken”.

“It depends on what your idea of a role model is,” Fox told the Times of London in a new interview. “If your idea of a role model is somebody who’s gonna preach to your kids that sex before marriage is wrong and cursing is wrong and women should be this and be that, then I’m not a role model.

“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.”

Fox, 23, admits she’s afraid of typecasting. “Getting typecast as what? Attractive? How bad is that?” she explains. “That’s not really a bad thing. If people want to look at me like that I find it flattering. And it gives me an advantage because people don’t expect anything from me.

“If I show up and give any sort of performance at all, even a mediocre one, everyone will walk away going, ‘Holy shit! Megan did a great job in that movie!’ So I’m an overachiever just by default because of the category I’ve been put in.”
