Sexy 'Jennifer's Body' star Megan Fox says she's nothing like Angelina Jolie, even though the brunette pair have frequently attracted comparisons for their similar looks and penchant for wild statements
Megan Fox doesn't want to be like Angelina Jolie.
The sexy 'Jennifer's Body' actress has frequently been compared to the 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' star since her break-through role in 2007's 'Transformers', but despite the brunettes' similar looks and penchant for wild statements, the younger actress insists they are poles apart .
Megan, 23, said: "People compare me to Angelina Jolie, and she's so serious and stoic. I'm the opposite.
"I'm not a tigress like Angelina. Of course, people want me to be. But I want to be the contradiction of that."
Megan - who was caught in a furore after she compared 'Transformers' director Michael Bay to Nazi party leader Adolf Hitler - blamed the Angelina comparisons for people taking her too seriously.
She said: "When I do interviews, I say things that I think are hysterical. But because we live in a world of sound bites, you're not allowed to have a sense of humour.
"Sarcasm doesn't translate in print at all. And neither does self-deprecating humour."
Megan also said she had doubts about her own acting skills, unlike Oscar-winner Angelina.
She told the New York Times newspaper: "I don't know if I'm talented, I don't know what I can do or can't do. I had no skills at all. As a child, I had it in my head that I was supposed to be doing this, and then I did it. But I didn't know what I was doing."
