"I don't want to have to be like a Scarlett Johansson - who I have nothing against -- but I don't want to have to go on talk shows and pull out every single SAT word I've every learned to prove, like, 'Take me seriously, I am intelligent, I can speak.' I don't want to have to do that. I resent having to prove that I'm not a retard - but I do. And part of it is my own fault. I'm just really confident sexually, and I think that sort of oozes out of my pores. It's just there. It's something I don't have to turn on."
-- Megan Fox, to the new issue of Esquire, on dealing with stardom on her terms.
