Mail hates women, part 2

Just as Megan Fox is named the sexiest woman in the world (read: public eye) by FHM, the Mail has decided to set the attack dogs on her. Again.

Last week it was suggesting she was hideously deformed because of her thumbs. Now they are asking if she is 'the DUMBEST star ever?' Because, you know, you can't possibly be the 'sexiest woman in the world' and not dumb.

But the evidence they produce is so thin, it's hard to believe someone spent the time putting it together, for no other reason than to have a bitch about her (the byline is the infamous 'Daily Mail reporter').

A clue might come in the fact she has called for the legalisation of cannabis, which they highlight and would clearly disapprove of - but is that really the dumbest thing a Hollywood star has ever said?

She also is quoted talking about Transformers, which she admits she is 'terrible' in:
'I can't s**t on this movie because it did give me a career and open all these doors for me. But I don't want to blow smoke up people's a*s. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting.'
Which seems to be quite self-aware and hard to disagree with. It certainly doesn't sound like someone who has 'amazed fans with her ignorance'.

  1. Funny thing is, I scanned the article for genuinely 'dumb' stuff and there wasn't any.

    In fact, the quotes they use make me think she's actually cleverer and more down-to-earth than I expected (ie 'Transformers was shit but people weren't watching for the story')

    Whereas I reckon in an interview with the average Mail journalist they'd come out with 7 different shades of ill-informed tripe.
