(Newser) – Megan Fox says she's just misunderstood. "Sometimes I say things that I think are obviously sarcastic and people take them quite literally," opines the starlet/philosopher, flogging US box office bomb Jennifer's Body north of the border. "This is a bullshit industry and I made a decision not to be a bullshit person. I need to hold onto my soul and my integrity and I can’t compromise that."

“I just really want it at some point to be OK for women and young girls to be sexy because I think that’s a power, a gift that we were given by God or the universe or whatever,” Fox tells the Telegraph. "I didn’t decide I’m going to be an actress because I want to be respected for how I play chess."
