No one quite heats up the Web like actress Megan Fox. Her stunning looks and, well, controversial comments (which got her fired from the last Transformers movie) captivate fans. Megan’s newest antics involve her famous and plentiful body art–or removal of it, that is. She decided to nix her tattoo of iconic film legend Marilyn Monroe, which has been noticeably fading from visibility on Megan’s forearm compared to photos from a few years ago. She finally confirmed the news to Italian magazine Amica (where she graces the September cover) that she is, in fact, having the tattoo removed. Why, you ask? Megan explains in the interview, “I’m removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.” (Monroe was known to be in psychoanlaysis, and there remain many theories to the actual state of the star’s mental health.) The 24-year-old has said in the past that these same qualities inspired her to get the ink in the first place. In a 2009 Us Weekly interview, Megan said, “I really admire Marilyn Monroe, but I would never try to emulate her.” She went on say that she got the tattoo as a warning to not let herself be treated so badly by the film industry so that it breaks her down.
Even though the ink is fading on Megan’s forearm, the star has been taking on Monroe-esque curves lately. The actress also tells Amica mag she’s dumped her vegan diet, which was limited to raw fruit and vegetables, and no bread, coffee, or sugar. “Now I eat a bit of everything,” she says. Here’s she’s all bombshell, but with a nerdy-chic edge in these stylish rectangle-framed eyeglasses. –rpuccia
