Diablo Cody Explains Why People Hate Megan Fox

Diablo Cody Explains Why People Hate Megan Fox-photo

Megan Fox has been known to say some really stupid things when, well, whenever she opens that pretty little mouth of hers. And that's tended to put a lot of people off.

But Diablo Cody says that people just don't understand her.

Cody—who wrote Fox's upcoming horror flick Jennifer's Body—tried to explain Megan's sometimes off-putting personality during a recent interview with The Frisky.

"She really makes people angry! Girls hate her, don’t they?" Cody marveled, before attempting to clear the air. "Even having worked with her to this extent, I don’t know her very well because she’s very private and mysterious. But I’ve [heard] these things come out of her mouth. I’ve been present for some of these interviews and she is totally fearless. What she is saying is completely genuine. It is not a front. I think people think she’s trying to create some kind of image for herself that she’s not, but she’s a really, truly eccentric person."

Of course, what some people might consider eccentricity, others would categorize as mental illness. And Megan herself would most likely agree with them.

Readers, let us know in the comments section: Do you think Megan Fox's tendency to make controversial statements is contrived, or the genuine ramblings of a free spirit?

    I don't think this woman is well educated. She is a spoilt brat with nothing better to do than look just plain stupid. It is so quick for people to say if you don't like her than your just jealous. There is more beautiful and classy women around and are better than Megan. Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly are pure class and beautiful women. Megan Fox is a pure idiot!

    Aw, this was a really nice post. In concept I wish to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make an excellent article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and certainly not appear to get one thing done.

    This comment is 100% WRONG!!!! Just because a person dislikes Megan does not mean that they are jealous. First lets talk about what she represents. The fact that all these people worship her is a poor reflection on those that do. She has made her image by taking off her clothes and using her sex appeal, she is obviously not the most intellectual person, yet men and women alike call her THE HOTTEST. So this is what its come down to? Get a few plastic surgeries, have half of your body CGI in the movie so you appear one way, and have the intellect of a grapefruit and your a role model. What about all the other beautiful and TALENTED women in hollywood?? Come on really PPL? Recognize someone for thier NATURAL beauty, talent, and class. She gives a bad name to women. Its sad. really sad. Let's foucs on the other talented and beautiful women in hollywood.....

    Everybody who hates her is either jealous or just an idiot. Some say she's uneducated with the way she speaks her mind. Newsflash if your too shallow to read between the lines or accept that it is her opinion and everybody is entitled to it or even just give her the benefit of the doubt. Then i think you my friend is the uneducated one...ok perhaps you've been educated...but alas, what a waste. I feel so sorry for your parents for even spending time and money to send you to school!

    She's beautiful, no doubt about that, but if she's smart, she'll learn to keep her trap shut and just stand there and look good. "Says things that make you think"?! Seriously? She's just as much of a dumbass as Megan Fox. MF is an ungrateful, pretending-to-be-insecure-to-get-att ention, and I can't wait for the next "IT" girl out there that's behind her right now breathing down her back to get noticed so we can get this ungrateful idiot off the covers of the magazines we read. It's alright, I'll sit back and watch all the dumb teeny boppers and adults soak in every useless word she says like she's God... fake a-- sh-t.. Vampires, claiming to have a mental illness, her so-called insecurities... just sit and look pretty, Fox. Don't bite the hand that feeds you (michael bay). COMPLETELY agree

    She knows shes good looking. But best looking woman alive ? No, I think not. She really cannot act. She should NOT be in the acting industry at all ... But she knows shes good looking ... So why not go into modeling ?

    I dont understand. People who love Megan Fox here are saying that people who hate her are judgemental and just jealous...but doesn't that make you guys judgemental as well? Hasn't it occurred to anybody that perhaps it is possible that some people just don't like Megan Fox. I mean come on people they have a right to not like Megan just as you have the right to like her THis world is full of different opinions and different people why can't everybody just be entitled to their own opinion without having to get bashed?. Anyway moving on to MY opinion. I like Megan Fox and I think she's gorgeus and I dont have anything against her. But personally I just dont like women in general who use their bodies to further their careers.

    People hate Megan because she is attractive. People look at attractive people like objects, not actual people. Men do not like her because they see her as the girl that they could never have- or the girl that would never want them. And women do not like her because they are jealous that she can get what she wants in life because of her beauty. Being attractive can be a double edge sword. It makes life easy, but people judge her like they know her personally. But all of that judgement comes down to one thing- and that is pure jealousy. Good post. Though I think it's pretty clear that most men don't hate her. I bet that even most of the ones who do not like her still find her hot and want to see her films.

    I don't get it--people who don't like her just narrows down to jealously? That's not a fair accusation. It's easier to love something then to hate it. I don't hate Megan--I dislike her. What are people that like her then? Sheep that like something only because of looks because they're vapid? I could easily say I dislike her because: -she can't act -has an attention whore personality -anything she says is to 'shock' the person (while it is good she voices opinions) -she's superficial -ungrateful -obnoxious -'holier than thou' attitude

    i agree with you. im starting to see so many negative comments about her.. and i cant even see a good reason for it.. im pretty sure deep down, the underlying reason is like you said, they're jealous of her or angry that they see this girl they could never have. or.... they believe what the media writes about her. the media is famous for misquoting or writing things to cause controversy. ive seen her in interviews and she seems nice, and doesn't seem to be putting on a fake personality (which is something i really dislike.. people who do that!). its pretty overwhelming when this type of thing happens.. i dont think its possible to ever convince these people to not hate her. hopefully she's able to ignore them..

    I hate it when people say girls are jealous of megan fox because of how she 'looks'. Honestly people? Go look up all the surgeries she has had. Go look up all the photoshopping. Go look up her before pictures. She is FAKE! Fake hair, fake eyes, fake face. She has to be the fakest thing ever seriously. She has her nose done, lips done, eyebrows one, wears color contacts, has her hair dyed black, where does it end? Girls aren't jealous, girls are pissed off at her cus she makes it look like it's okay to be fake. It puts me off in a guy whenever he is drooling over her, if they saw her 5 years ago they'd stay away from her. Are men really that ignorant to let their dicks rule over their minds? Everyone knows shes fake and photoshopped. Oh, & yes she is a complete MORON. Every heard the things she says? She tries too hard. But the worst thing of all, she cannot act! Having her in the transformers movie completely ruined it. I suppose it would be OK for her to be a idiot if she could act and have some form of talent, but she doesn't. It's like this with most people in hollywood though. Like paris hilton who claims girls are 'haters' and 'jealous'. Yeh right. Megan fox doesn't have ANYTHING a normal girl doesn't have. Cept a load of cash to turn her into plastic and go around strutting as if she's perfect. But whateverrr, if men want to drool over some fake photoshopped girl, or girls want to admire a false goddess, go ahead. At the end of the day it's YOU who is admiring a idiot, not me :)

    Who gives a rat's ass about Megan Fox. She is pretty........but she has NO CLASS, no manners, and carries herself like trailer trash. She has a c*cky bitchy attitude in every interview she does. And guess what? There are so many other celebs out there who are just as beautiful if not even MORE BEAUTIFUL and have much better personalities.....just look at Natalie Portman, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Bilson, and the list goes on and ON!!!

    The "people hate her because she's attractive" claim is absurd. If this were true the whole world would have a hate-on for every hollywood actor. Megan Fox is not even really beautiful - just the product of some good surgery. In fact, this person is a product and nothing more - empty, vain, talentless. She gives shallow guys a hard-on because she behaves as if her entire existence is a Penthouse photo shoot with that vacant "I would never question you because I'm too dumb" look in her eyes. People hate Megan Fox because she looks and sounds shallow, two dimensional, narcissistic and plain stupid. She is a truly ugly human being.

    I am sure that there are people that hate Hally Berry too. But you are talking about two women of different age ranges. Megan is the sex symbol of a younger generation. When a woman is getting compaired to Angie, then you know that hollywood has high hopes for Megan to follow in their very important shoes. I know what's you're saying, I will take somebody else then. Mila Kunis, yes for sure some people don't like her but she doesn't get bashed as much as Megan Fox. Her interviews are quite honest and quite direct as well. I am not trying to put Megan down, I just want to say that I do believe that some people do not like her because of her personality or because they don't find her talented, and not necessarily because she is beautiful. I still believe that not all people are shallow.

    You know, I do agree and I don't at the same time. I find that yes, women are jealous, definitely more than men but as women get older, that whole jealousy thing definitely fades away. Past 30, it goes away, unless, some have extreme problems of insecurity. Also, it does depends on the personality. Nathalie Portman is a beautiful woman and girls are not jealous of her, they envy her in a positive way. Mila Kunis (70 show, forgetting sarah marshall, family guy), who I think is as beautiful as...maybe even more beautiful than Megan, yet, women won't be jealous of her, they will envy her because this woman is way cool and if you have read some of her interviews, she is really, really funny and quite smart...by the way, she is the same age as Megan. It all comes down to the personality they show in interviews and well, let's face it, Megan isn't very good in interviews that's why people are thrown off. By the time Miss fox is 30, 31, she will go back on that time when she was giving these poor interviews and she will be the first one to admit to that.

    Oh come on. You'd have to-quite literally-be as blind and gullible as a herd of sheep in a sandstorm not to see through this facade of sudo-bisexual, quirky, 'fearless' crap she's pulling. She's much like Sarah Palin: tapping into every niche and token sellable quality inherent to certain market segments. I can see her agent now: "Bisexuality is all the rage presently, let's go with that angle. We all know the crazy chicks are the best in bed, so she's gotta talk about being sorta nuts. But just sorta nuts! Not too nuts, that's not attractive. OH, tattoos! That's intriguing and artistic. And talking about not relating to her male peers on a relationship level; that makes her sound smart. All bases covered boys!". It seems to me that if any one of these assertions were genuine, she would be content enough in her reality to simply live her example: but that doesn't sell Maxim quite as well. So the girl is hot, nobody will deny it. It's just a shame she tries so hard to portray herself as an effortless fantasy. I think that she is a master manipulator that knows how to get what she wants. I can't bring myself to hate her- more like respect her. She is on top of the world right now- no one can knock her down no matter how hard they try.

    I dated this pretty girl back in college -- she would say the dumbest things imaginable with no regard for social cause & effects. She would insult everyone close to her and then, incredibly, announce how she's just eccentric. C'mon, there's a big difference between saying stupid things and eccentricities. Eccentricities make people interesting, not ***holes. You have proven my original statement just by posting this comment.

    Totally and completely agree with you. There's a Russian saying: "It's better everywhere where we aren't." Well you get the point, idioms are hard to translate. People always think that just because someone has something they don't have, their lives are automatically easier and problem free. Beautiful women are invisible, we are too dazzled by the outside that we never make it inside. Thanks. I just think that she faces the hate that she does because people are deeply insecure. We look and stair at the reflection in the mirror- wondering if we are attractive. But what people fail to understand is that beauty comes in all races and backgrounds. There are millions of women all over the world that are sexually attractive- Megan is not the only one. But hollywood has put her on a pedestal, so she is an easy target for jealous and hateful attacks from insecure and unattractive people

Eccentricities make people interesting, not ***holes. The only time she ever "insulted" anyone was when she spoke about MIchael Bay. She did not insult him, she said his movie was not about acting and it is not! It's action, a genre not famous for complex monologues and oscar caliber performances. Its about fast cars, explosions and other such fun, and I love action movies, because thats is what they provide. So for anyone to really take offense to that is really stupid and arrogant. The movie kicked ass on all the levels an action movie should but that's it. And its unbelievably small of you to transpose your insecurities and anger about some old girlfriend too hot for you onto Megan. Grow up, learn to be a better person, and learn to not be an enema just because the internet lets you.

    I don't get why people judge her so harshly. You think just because she's a movie star she isn't subject to normal human insecurities about they way she looks? Also, I like what she has to say. It's refreshing to see that she doesn't kiss someones ass just because they put her in her movie. Transformers was a movie about explosions and eye candy.. not acting... and she said as much. How people can spout all this hate over the internet of someone they don't even know, and probably will never even meet, hurts my brain. Are we really this judgmental? Are you somehow better than her by posting cruel asinine comments about her?

    People think that because you're an attractive woman you shouldn't have any merit to speak your mind. I think most anonymous people in blogs write horrible things but when faced with a person in public I doubt any of the rude and ill manners some of you spout on here would ever leave your computer screen and be spoken to these supposed "idiots". Cowards. Stop being such jerks and just accept that some people will be on your magazine covers wether you like them or not. Also, being in college doesn't grant you absolute intelligence, there are plenty of well educated people who are horrible, horrible human beings. Get off the high horse and stop posting hate filled messages about celebrities when you're just eating it up like the rest of us. Most of the time the media sensationalizes comments in order to generate publicity for said celebrity. If you knew anything about show business and its wonderful ways of manipulating the public you'd know better than to post such absurd comments about a woman you know nothing about. Got you talking didn't it? Guess it does work...Even on the "smart" people I guess...

    finally some people agree with me about her. i adore her. she speaks her mind, and most of the things she says are very true, albeit completely weird. she looks oddly at things, but that is in no way stupid. like her comment about actors being like prostitutes, is a completely legitimate analogy logically, but there is a stigma about prostitution and people just lost it when they read it. and how can any of you really judge someone you don't even know? have you this little decency and goodwill? it really just betrays the frailties of your souls.

    Definitely the words of a free spirit. Why should she clam up and be as demure and fake as everyone else in Hollywood? God bless her for being willing to fearlessly speak her mind. I wish more people were as honest as her. There'd be a lot less fakery and a lot few liars in the world. megan is not honest. She does it for attention. and she's a coward who can not speak directly to people. Megan is just a stupid girl
