Megan Fox is hot in new horror flick Jennifer's Body. Just ask her.
In the film, in which Fox eats people, "there's sort of a hint of, a little bit of a lesbian relationship that happens. There's a girl-on-girl kiss.
Fox says she loved starring in the flick because "it's so unapologetic and completely inappropriate at all times." But it was harder to film than Transformers, which she slammed as "not about acting" — just special effects.
"There are no robots to distract you from whatever performance I do give. So if it's terrible, you're going to know that it's terrible!" Fox says. "That of course is intimidating, but I think the character was so much fun for me. And I wasn't really sure what I was doing. I was just trying to have fun with it.
"I sort of felt like I was being able to make fun of my own image, sort of, as to how some people might perceive Megan Fox to be," she continues. "I was just sort of flying freely and I hope some of it worked." Usually, Fox is "not a fan" or horror movies.
"I actually have a very intense fear of the dark," she admits. "The last horror movie I saw — I think it was called The Tooth Fairy — was in 2005, and I was 15 years old. After I saw it, I slept with my mother for two weeks afterwards!"
But she pounced on the opportunity to overcome her fear. "I think for me, to be able to play something that I would normally be frightened by is really intriguing and interesting," she says.
Watching a scream scene in the movie still horrified her. "It frightened me, and it shook me up for like five minutes," she admits.
She doesn't mind freaking out an audience. "It's cool to see myself being able to scare people, because I'm just a little girl," she says. "Look at me: I'm so sweet!"
