Megan Fox Believes In Leprechauns + Thinks the Internet Could Be the Antichrist
A brain swirling with crazy, crazy thoughts.
The Esquire interview started off in a calm and intelligent enough manner, but things soon went off the rails.
When Fox was asked why she had her Marilyn Monroe tattoo lasered off, she explained, “She was sort of like Lindsay Lohan … She had all of the potential in the world, and it was squandered. I’m not interested in following in those footsteps.”
And how does Fox feel about fame?
“I don’t think people understand. They all think we should shut the f– up and stop complaining because you live in a big house or you drive a Bentley. So your life must be so great,” she said, and later likened fame to “being bullied by millions of people constantly, on a global scale.”
Sounds unpleasant. But she’s not the first to have a love-hate relationship with notoriety. We’ll let it slide that plenty of famous people don’t feel eaten alive by their own fame because they don’t feed it as she often does. Fox is entitled to her feelings, however martyr-like they may be.
But then things got weird. As the Esquire writer put it, “She’s much more comfortable talking about the Antichrist than her career.”
She opined about the end times and how she has to stop herself from speaking in tongues at church, and how she believes that fame and celebrity (or the internet itself) could mark the arrival of the Antichrist.
“I’ve read the Book of Revelation a million times,” she said. “It does not make sense, obviously. It needs to be decoded. What is the dragon? What is the prostitute? What are these things?”
Esquire also notes that Fox “believes that people are inherently bad,” pointing out that she fired her own nanny after reading news about one who killed her charges. (This may also be why she pulled the plug on her Twitter account after only a week on the site.)
The interview ends with Fox explaining that if she had her druthers, she’d leave the public eye and become an archaeologist. Specifically, she wants to find evidence of “ancient aliens who gave rise to ancient civilizations on earth.”
“I like believing,” she concluded. “I believe in all of these Irish myths, like leprechauns … We should all believe in leprechauns. I’m a believer.”
