Megan Fox might be known — in part — for being a sex symbol, but don’t even think about snapping an unauthorized photo of her in any state of undress.
Allure magazine interviewed Fox and told her about a blurry topless picture of her that was taken on a cell phone. The image was leaked while she was filming her new independent movie “Passion Play,” in which she plays a circus-sideshow performer who has bird wings.
“If I knew who took this picture, I would personally cause them harm — physical harm,” Fox told Allure. “I’m not a f---ing reality-TV star that’s courting the paparazzi and wants my f---ing picture taken all the time. I’m at my job and I’m trying to play a character and I’m trying to be serious, and this is the sh-- that’s happening to me. It makes me furious.” (Clearly.)
Other things that make Fox’s dislikes list include industry events and compliments.
As for industry events, Fox said, “Everyone blows sunshine up everyone else’s ass.” Which brings her to that thing about compliments: “I hate receiving compliments; I hate being told I’m talented or people think I’m going to be a movie star. I always feel that it’s forced and fake.”
LaBeouf takes hit for ‘Indiana Jones’
Shia LaBeouf is in Cannes promoting “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” but that’s not the only film he’s talking about. LaBeouf is admitting that he “dropped the ball” on “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”
The film went on to gross $786.6 million worldwide, but LaBeouf told reporters that “I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished.”
He was keenly aware of this before he began the “Wall Street” sequel. “If I was going to do it twice, my career was over. So this was fight or flight for me,” said LaBeouf, who went on to say he wasn’t a believable action hero.
“You get to monkey-swinging and things like that and you can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on Steven (Spielberg, who directed). But the actor's job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn't do it. So that's my fault. Simple.”
What to expect of ‘Law & Order: Los Angeles’
At Monday’s NBC upfronts, the network showed clips of many of the shows that will debut this fall. Among the programs that didn’t get a lot of presentation time was “Law & Order: Los Angeles,” and the reason for that became clear pretty quickly when the show was described as “about to go into production.”
(Msnbc.com is a joint venture between Microsoft and NBC Universal.)
But what can “Law & Order” fans expect? From the looks of the very, very brief clip, headlines ripped from Hollywood would be a good bet. O.J. Simpson’s low-speed chase in the white Ford Bronco made the sizzle reel, as did scenes from Michael Jackson’s trial and many celebrity mug shots.
If you’re going to attempt to stay loyal to the original “Law & Order,” there’s a chance that the show will live on: TNT reportedly has plans to meet with NBC brass in the coming weeks about the show finding a home on the cable network. The show’s creator, Dick Wolf, also told The New York Times on Monday that he was seeking “other offers” for the show.
