Megan Fox has notably become less outspoken with the press in recent months and is reluctant to make jokes anymore. And perhaps that's because the media tend to misquote the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress and blow everything out of proportion.

During a recent interview with the Herald Sun newspaper in Australia, Fox revealed that she holds back when speaking to the press because she's afraid of being misquoted.

"Unfortunately for me I can't make jokes. I can't be the way, say, Will [Arnett] (her Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-star) is in an interview, because everything I say is printed as literal."

"There seems to be this need to portray me either like I am crazy, or an uptight bitch. There is no room for me just to relax and be myself and joke around because it's always taken out of context."

Speaking of being taken out of context, Fox claimed that is exactly what happened when she previously had a falling out with Transformers director Michael Bay.

"I think everything in the media plays out so much more dramatically than it is in real life," the Jennifer's Body star said.

However, the pair appear to have put aside their differences for now because they have once again teamed up for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

"We have been talking behind the scenes for a while now," Fox confessed.

"But sometimes when you have two strong personalities, you are going to have disagreements. And then at a certain juncture you decide, 'Well, maybe we are not going to work together on this project, because we are clashing so badly.' I don't think that's really such a crazy, bizarre thing in itself. It's just that there aren't a lot of actresses who have left billion dollar franchises, so it's very salacious."
