    "'Transformers' made $700 million and that opened a door to introduce this 'new girl,'" Fox tells Entertainment Weekly. "I happened to be such an outrageous personality that people wanted to start writing about me because it was deemed controversial. I think if I had been a typical Hollywood actress and I said all the right things and I had been a publicity android, it wouldn’t have escalated to this level."

    Purple passion

"It’s going to be the best action movie of the summer," Fox told Entertainment Weekly. "Hands down, it will win that. But it’s not trying to be a Golden Globe-nominated film. It’s a badass popcorn summer movie."

"I'm just really confident sexually, and I think that sort of oozes out of my pores," she tells Esquire magazine. "It's just there. It's something I don't have to turn on."

Fox also fesses up to removing, like so many young women before her, a naval piercing.

"I did it when I was 16 years old because I was a fan of Britney Spears," she explains. "The only time I tried to imitate someone else. But then I thought it was tacky and so I removed it when I turned 20."
