The other night, I’m lying in bed reading a book and my wife is next to me watching The Tonight Show, half asleep, when Conan O’Brien says two words that really tick off my wife…Megan Fox.
My wife immediately perks up and begins telling me how much she can’t stand Megan Fox. I close my book just in time to see the glorious Megan sit down next to Conan. She’s radiant, has an incredible body, is witty enough to make Conan laugh and fawn all over her and she’s wearing an amazing skintight dress. Now my wife is fuming. She’s begins slamming Conan for flirting and I remind her that it’s his job to flirt with and talk to Megan Fox…. she’s a guest on his TALK SHOW! What’s he supposed to do, ignore her?
My wife seems offended and dumbfounded that I could find the hottest starlet in Hollywood attractive, so she abruptly ends her assault on me, Conan and Megan by switching off the light, turning over and going to bed. Wait, what just happened? Why does my wife hate Megan Fox so much?
Over the next couple of days I asked quite a few women what they thought about Ms Fox and guess what, not one of them liked her. What is it about Megan Fox that elicits such a strong negative response from females? Women don’t seem to hate Scarlett Johannsen or Cameron Diaz or Jennifer Aniston or Shakira or Jessica Biel or Hillary Duff or Jessica Simpson or the Olson twins, right? Is it because she’s s everywhere; the cover of tabloids, profiled in most major magazines, about to host Saturday Night Live?
If you search her name online you’ll find over thirty four million entries. Her legs have over a million entries and her breasts almost eight hundred thousand! So is the disdain toward Megan from my wife and most women due to jealousy or is it something bigger? I searched for clues in interviews she’d given. In June Megan told Entertainment Weekly, “I come across as confident and [women] assume that means that I think I’m hot s*#t. And that makes them feel bad about themselves and so they hate me.” She also told them-”I’m smart and I can be really funny and interesting and I can go toe-to-toe with anybody in a conversation.” She let FHM magazine know-”I really enjoy having sex, and that’s offensive to some people. Women are the quickest to call other women sluts, which is sad. I haven’t met a lot of men who’ve said, ‘You like having sex? What a dirty whore you are!’ That’s because they wish their wives or girlfriends would have more sex with them.”
Okay, I was beginning to understand how females could dislike this global phenomenon. And the luscious Miss Fox had become internationally famous by being in only two major films, neither of which required much acting? Plus Megan doesn’t mind talking about her sexuality and in her latest film Megan makes out with another woman and she looks like she really enjoys it.
Yeah, that’s why my wife is so venomous every time she sees Megan Fox. It’s also the reason my thirteen year old son and his friends think she’s, “hot”, “awesome” and “a freak of nature…and not in a bad way.” I’m pretty sure he and his friends are among the millions of males who Google Megan Fox’s body parts. I only hope my wife never catches him.
