Megan Fox is hot. This cannot be denied.
But the actress is featured in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar, making one denial after another when it comes to how she's perceived in the press and, possibly, inside your home.
"I would say most people assume that I'm not very smart or educated or earnest, because I have this image that I'm sort of narcissistic, chasing attention, and wanting people to like me," she tells the magazine.
"It makes me laugh because I've done plenty of interviews and when you read the article from beginning to end you can see that I'm not your typical music video model."
That may be true... but Fox does love The Real Housewives.
She also loves her kids with husband Brian Austin Green: Noah, 2, and Bodhi, 13 months; along with her step-son, Green's 13-year-old child, Kassius.
How does the bisexual beauty view her philosophy as a parent?
"I don't think I need to teach my children with harsh words or with punishment. I believe that if I love them the right way, there's no need for that," Fox explains. "I'm a free-spirit mother."
Fox added that she has no “game plan” for her career, simply trusting her “intuition” when it comes to choosing movie roles.
But she does have a plan for motherhood.
"I don't act as a disciplinarian or an authority figure per se. I don't ever want to be a restrictive force on [Bodhi]; I want to be an expansive force...I want him to be inspired by me because he constantly inspires me as well. Motherhood has really deepened me and has given me so much perspective.
"I'm very dedicated."
And, it must be mentioned again, very hot.
