Actress Megan Fox has claimed that starring in the comedy The Dictator has helped her to feel like herself again. Megan claims that she was beginning to get a bit disillusioned with acting, as she was just playing serious or sexy roles all of the time but her dip into comedy has reignited her love for her art.
Fox explained to The Sun, “When I first started acting I was always playing the bitchy or mean girl, then I was playing these cool, robotic women. I was growing tired of playing those kinds of characters and reinforcing this stereotype of me and having to play up to that when I was doing interviews.”
She added, “Now I feel I can be myself again. It’s given me the chance to get away from that sexy, icy image that I’ve been stuck with. I think the public can relate to me more easily in these kinds of movies.”
Megan also praised The Dictator star Sacha Baron Cohen, adding, “I had a wonderful time. Sacha is very smart and funny. We had a great time working together. I think audiences are going to love the film.”
The Dictator is released in the US on May 11 and in the UK on May 18.
