Megan Fox talks about her haters in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, but says she’s learned to let their remarks roll right off her back. “I would say most people assume that I’m not very smart or educated or earnest, because I have this image that I’m sort of narcissistic, chasing attention, and wanting people to like me,” says Fox.

“It makes me laugh because I’ve done plenty of interviews and when you read the article from the beginning to the end you can see that I’m not your typical video model,” adds the 28-year-old actress, who starred in Rihanna and Eminem’s 2010 music video for “Love the Way You Live.”

Fox tells the magazine that she doesn’t like to seek “other people’s approval because” she knows “it isn’t going to come.” She also admitted that early on in her career, she was being marketed as a sex symbol, which caused people to doubt her acting abilities. “In Transformers I was a kid,” explains Fox. “I had no idea what I was doing.”

However, the actress says she’s eager to take on different types of roles. She had supporting parts in hits like This is 40 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. “I don’t sit back and have a game plan and make decisions about my career like other actors do,” admits Fox. “I have no ego tied up into my career at all. If I get pitched into a movie I do it… I trust my intuition.” What do you think about what Fox has to say?
