Megan Fox In Allure Magazine: ‘I Could Go A Week Without Eating’

Megan Fox covers the June issue of Allure, and in the interview she drops 24 F-bombs, although the magazine only prints six of them.

"I wanted her hair to look natural and romantic," said hairstylist Serge Normant. He parted it down the center, divided it into three sections, and "unevenly" teased each one. Starting at Fox's chin, Normant braided the hair "loosely and irregularly." Last, he pulled out "random pieces for a deconstructed braid." Here, Fox poses in a cotton blouse from See by Chloé.

Megan Fox covers the June issue of Allure, and in the interview she drops 24 F-bombs, although the magazine only prints six of them. Her slim but curvy figure is the envy of millions of women throughout the world. And now she has revealed how she maintains her weight – by going for weeks at a time without eating.

At the end of the day, the actress thanked the crew and hopped into her Mercedes-Benz SUV to head home, where she lives with boyfriend Brian Austin Green. The two met in 2004 while Fox was on the television show Hope & Faith and Green appeared as a guest star. "After we were done shooting that day, Brian gave his number out to everyone," said Fox. "So I called him." Here, the actress poses in a cotton dress by Donna Karan New York.

In the interview with Allure magazine, the 24-year-old star of “Transformers” reveals she has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and that she has no qualms about hurting the paparazzi photographer who snapped a topless photo of her on the set of her new film.

“If I knew who took this picture, I would personally cause them harm – physical harm,” she said in the magazine’s upcoming issue.

At the time the unauthorized photo was taken, Megan Fox was shooting an independent feature called “Passion Play,” in which she stars alongside Mickey Rourke as a circus sideshow performer.

“I’m at my job and I’m trying to play a character and I’m trying to be serious, and this is the s— that’s happening to me,” Fox told the magazine. “It makes me furious.”

The raven-haired bombshell is often photographed off set around Los Angeles with her on-again, off-again beau of five years, Brian Austin Green. But she does not appreciate being tabloid fodder – even with her top on.

“I’m not a f—ing reality-TV star that’s courting the paparazzi and wants my f—ing picture taken all the time,” she told Allure.

"Megan usually has bronzed skin and smoky eyes," said Young. For this shoot, "I played down her sexiness and made her more fresh." Young rimmed Fox's upper lash lines with charcoal pencil, smudged it into her lashes, and topped it with shimmery ivory shadow. She then dabbed a rosy cream blush on the apples of Fox's cheeks. The final touch: Young applied a rose lipstick to the center of Fox's lips and blended the color outward.

Fox, who is known for speaking her mind, dropped multiple f-bombs during her chat with the fashion magazine, but only six made it to print.

“I’m going to spend 20 years never saying anything interesting? Never telling a joke? Never pushing anyone’s buttons?” she asked Allure. “I’m a person, I’m not a robot.”

By the time everyone broke for lunch (Fox ate salad and chicken and sipped green tea), Kadel had completed three different shots. This usually takes about seven hours, but Fox didn't need many hair or makeup touch-ups, and "she didn't ask to see the photos on the monitor," said Cavaco. "Everything with her is so mellow, easy, and fast."

Fox, 24, says she is such a terrible cook that she would rather ‘starve to death’ that ever eat any food she has prepared. She said: “I’ll starve to death before I’ll cook for myself. I think I could survive a week without eating.”

Fox also admitted that despite being in a happy relationship with former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Brian Austin Green, she would rather be on her own than in anyone else’s company.

She told Allure magazine: “I could go days, weeks, without talking to another human being.  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.”

Fox, who can soon be seen starring alongside Josh Brolin and John Malkovich in new movie Jonah Hex, also voiced her concerns about people rushing into having plastic surgery.

She said: “I would encourage anyone to first speak with a therapist, to try and figure out where this want comes from, because a lot of times it’s not related to your teeth or your nose or your chin – the surgery is not going to alleviate that insecurity for you.”

“If, then, you feel, “This is something that I want to do”, then do it. It’s amazing that we have the technology to do the stuff that we do.”

The actress happily went along with creative director Paul Cavaco's plans for barely-there makeup. The approach was ideal for her natural assets: Her lashes were so long and dark, she didn't even need mascara. "Paul had mentioned the 1979 film Tess with Nastassja Kinski," said makeup artist Virginia Young. "In the movie, Tess isn't meant to look like she's made-up—she is naturally gorgeous, just like Megan."

Though she may have a dirty mouth, Fox can’t stand dirt as a rule. The actress told the magazine that she suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, which means she can’t use public cutlery or enter a restroom without feeling uncomfortable.

Fox arrived so early to the 10 A.M. shoot that she had already settled down to have her hair done when the rest of the crew arrived. She had her Kindle with her; queued up was New York Times best-seller Jesus Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don't Know About Them) (HarperCollins). Here, the actress poses for a test shot in a Fendi dress and bedroom slippers.

“This is a sickness, I have an illness, -this is not OK anymore,” she told the magazine. I’m never doing that again. Every time someone uses a bathroom and they flush, all the bacteria is shot into the air”

Talking about cutlery, she added: “Putting my mouth where a million other mouths have been, just knowing all the bacteria that you carry in your mouth? Ucch!”
