Actress Megan Fox has explained why it’s hard being a Hollywood sex symbol who is lusted after by men around the world.
The 23-year-old star told the New York Times that she often has to put on a persona to fit the image that the public have of her.
“All women in Hollywood are known as sex symbols,” she explained. “You’re sold, and it’s based on sex. That’s OK, if you know how to use it.”
And indeed she does. Last year she was voted the sexiest woman in the world by FHM magazine and this year remained in the top ten at number two, beaten only by Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole.
But she claimed her sex appeal has prompted some strong reactions from women.
“Girls think I’m a slut,” she stated, although she was quick to add that she has been in the same relationship since she was 18 years old.
The Jennifer’s Body actress has previously revealed that she has her boyfriend’s name tattooed next to her “pie”.
