Walking the fine line between exploiting and emancipating her sexuality, ingénue Megan Fox gives her new horror film Jennifer’s Body a glowing review, promising audiences, “a girl-on-girl kiss. This movie is so sexy… I think I’m pretty sexy in it.”
If you admired the wit in Mean Girls but the pesky PG content bored you, this Diablo Cody penned high school horror romp might hit the spot. The tagline, so earnestly delivered by ex-plastic clique member herself (and Big Love star) Amanda Seyfried tells a lot about the highly hot Fox’s title character Jennifer. ”No I mean she’s actually evil,” Seyfried says in the clip, “not high school evil.”
The story follows Fox as Jennifer, “a newly possessed cheerleader turns into a killer who specializes in offing her male classmates” according to imdb.com. Can her faithful best friend, a wallflower played by Seyfried, save her or stop her? Moviegoers will find out on September 18th.
Fox herself tantalized the press, who hangs on her every sexuality-soaked sound byte, telling interviewers that in the movie, “There’s a relationship that happens between my character and Amanda’s character. There’s a girl-on-girl kiss. This movie is so sexy. You better put on your sexy shoes for this one.”
But the seductive scenes aren’t all of the girl/girl persuasion, sadly. Fox continues, “Beyond that, before every kill, there’s a seduction that occurs. These boys have to be seduced into getting close enough to this dead girl for her to devour them. So, it does get sexy. I think I’m pretty sexy in it.”
The hugely popular young actress has yet to define her talents in an acting role to date. After Transformers shot her to fame, she famously admitted, “I’ve done one movie. And it’s not a movie I want to stand on as far as acting ability goes. I mean, I’m not going to win an Oscar anytime soon. I’m not Meryl Streep.”
Will Jennifer’s Body be her breakthrough?
