Diablo Cody’s Jennifer’s Body showed us three things: 1) Megan Fox cannot act. 2) She wasn’t a box-office draw 3) It wasn’t Megan Fox that sold Transformers. Well, in an interview The Academy Award winning screenwriter admits she’s surprised that Megan Fox didn’t draw a crowd she blames herself for the film’s failure at the box-office.
Digital Spy has the interview:
“I am surprised more boys didn’t come out for Megan [Fox]. But I own my own failure. I hate it on American Idol when they do a horrible performance and they go,’Well, I had fun’. I think that’s bullsh*t. If you failed, you didn’t have fun.”
I’ve never been a fan of Megan Fox, no matter how hot she is. When it comes to movies I’m more interested in a cast members performance than there looks, and it seems that many agree when it comes to Megan Fox. I had lost pretty much all interest in the film after I heard Fox was cast in the lead role, but still reserved judgement afterwards. But if you ask me, the reason many didn’t come see the film was because the trailers teased us about Fox’s nudity and it didn’t show anything.
That’s not to say the film didn’t have other problems than Megan Fox.
