Is Josh Brolin's Take Delusional?

Josh Brolin thinks Megan Fox is the next Katharine Hepburn.

Megan Fox

Brolin, who must have gotten into the wood glue again, recently told Playboy that his Jonah Hex costar Megan Fox is just as misunderstood and talented as the lauded classic film siren Katharine Hepburn.

"What Megan has done is confuse everybody thoroughly," Brolin said. "To me, she's doing something more interesting than what a lot of other young people in movies are doing.

"Katharine Hepburn, one of the most appreciated actresses today, was hated back in her heyday. She was box office poison… They didn't understand her. Yet now we all look back and go, 'OK, she was incredible.'

"I would love to be the person who puts Megan in a film in which she can actually do something interesting."

Jonah Hex bombed at the box office, bringing in a mere $5 million in its opening weekend. Guess Fox's talents really are largely misunderstood.

Strangely (or perhaps not so strange considering the source) actor Mickey Rourke also praised Fox's acting chops.

"People say bad stuff about her and how she can't act, but they only say that because she's beautiful," says the actor, who stars with Fox in Passion Play, released last week. "She's the most talented actress I've worked with. When she cries in a scene, I get emotional."

In other news, Chris Klein is the next Laurence Olivier.

I am a big fan of Megan Fox. I suppose after that comment one expects me to only praise her. There are things about her that are un-appealing, destructive and could be her downfall in many ways but after watching her movies and Hope and Faith I have to say she has some acting chops. She does not seem like Meryl Streep at the moment because I did not see enough acting gold from her to put her in the category. She is young and she just started with movies. Give the woman a break. It took a lot of actors a long time and a lot of work to be taken seriously. Also, doesn’t it seem odd that someone that is an incredible actor such as Mickey who knows so much about acting and has so much acting experience (in movies and in general) would say that about Megan. It seems that someone like Mickey would not call Megan Fox good just for the fun of it. Look at most actors, it seems that most of them while they were trying to make a name for themselves were only being torn down and ridiculed. Johnny deep was seen as box office poison for most of his acting career and just used as a prop, a tool, a piece of meat at the beginning. Megan Fox said something along the lines of when she asked the director of Transformers what she should do (acting in the movie) he told her she should just act y. This really does not help an actress out to put out her full possible potential into a piece of work. Either way, I support her and can’t wait till she has many awards under her belt.

Honestly I dont think Megan is very memorable... I think she is going to disapear soon unless she a) comes out with ever riskier half nude photos b) says something else ridiculously y that make men ponder if shes hot enough to tolerate or c) throws a hissy fit for another director... Most people remember Megan for the same reason they remember Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian... not because of talent, but because of controversy and good looks. Also, actors may be good at what they do, but alot of them don't have a great record of being mentaly stable... especialy Micky Rourke. Directors and Producers know what stars make for a good movie.. thats why they cast... not the actors. So, if Megan can't get a role other than eye candie.. it's because the profesionals don't think shes capable of anymore. Can they be wrong? Sure, but in this case I really doubt it.

She may be signficantly misunderstood. Many people are misunderstood. Let her speak for herself.

Brad Pitt October 08, 2010 | 12:23 PM

Only time will tell if she really deserves to be praised like Hepburn. People make mistakes but to insult the one who put you in the spot light is another thing, it raises an issue about ones character or the girl didn't have any moral value at all.

Guy Incognito October 05, 2010 | 10:20 AM

Never will she be like Katherine Hepburn.

Guess Megan had better get started on those 12 Oscar Nominations.....

They are still trying to push this dimwit into becoming a great "actress" but the only thing she's good at is injecting her face and blinking most of the time. Megs is a cute girl at best, but the chick just CAN'T ACT. Poor Megs is older than Angelina when Angelina won her first Oscar. Now take Angelina Jolie... this is a beautiful girl who is disturbingly hot and y and we aren't trolling her, we aren't jealous of her, we *LOVE* her for her beauty and talent! Angelina is a perfect example of what a true Hollywood actress is. Sorry...

Believe it or not, I think Josh Brolin and Mickey Rourke actually know what they're talking about (of course, they're just great actors and not gossip bloggers). Fox has incredible screen presence - STAR quality - she did a great job in "Jennifer's Body", which was a wickedly funny and a SATIRE (I wonder how many people don't know what a satire is). I think a lot of trolls are disturbed by Fox's beauty and the fact that a young female like her can talk trash to male authority. She's very young and she's made some mistakes but, in the long run, she's got what it takes and won't be denied.
