Megan Fox says she was misquoted by French mag

Updated, noon PT: Megan Fox may be one of the hottest women in Hollywood -- but she wants to make it clear that she doesn't see herself that way.

The 25-year-old "Friends With Kids" actress is featured on the cover of French magazine Jalouse's April issue. In their interview with her, Fox is quoted as saying she "live[s] well with my image. I cannot complain. I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl."

An annoyed Fox took to her Facebook page Friday to clarify her comments. "Sigh. The actual comment, the context and its intention are grossly distorted and misrepresented here," Fox writes on her profile page (above), adding that poor translation is really to blame. "I gave this interview in English obviously," she says. "It was then translated to French and now back into English."

The actress insists the quotes are completely out of character for her, and says she's not the type to make the type of "vapid self serving comments" printed by the magazine. In fact, Fox asserts, "[I am] in contradiction...uncontrollably self deprecating."

Earlier this month, Fox opened up to MIAMI magazine about feeling insecure and lonely as a teen. "I was never the pretty girl," she shared, calling her younger self "obnoxious" and "abrasive."
