Megan Fox will be back in action, but this time a more intimate action than battling giant robots. Jonah Hex, she plays a love interest to the western superhero, and all the intimacy that entails.
Megan Fox Dates Jonah Hex
“I’m Jonah’s love interest I guess you could call it but it’s not very conventional,” Fox said. “She’s a prostitute that he’s been coming and visiting for years. They sort of have a special relationship. He doesn’t want to get too close to her or allow her too close because everyone he loves dies. She doesn’t really understand that concept. So it’s a push and pull sort of situation.”
Don’t get too excited by the prostitute thing, guys. Fox wouldn’t be selling herself on the modern circuit. It was a more legitimate enterprise back then. “The kind of prostitution that existed back then is very different than the kind that exists now. That was a very common way for a woman to make a living and we didn’t really show. If there had been more graphic scenes, I probably would have [researched prostitutes] but the only sex scene that is in there is between Jonah and Leila and they’re lovers, so that wasn’t really the same sort of situation.”
The role is a little more than the cameo that’s been suggested, but she packed a lot into a brief screen presence. “It was only five days that I filmed and I’ve never been more exhausted filming something. I mean, I shot 108 days on Transformers and the five days I spent on this were by far a lot more difficult. It's just hard. I’m way out of my league. Everything is so far over my head. I'm just trying to stay alive.”
Dressing up in nice old clothes was fun though. “The corset obviously changes the way you walk and your breathing patterns and things like that so I enjoyed that. I wanted that cinch to tighten me as much as possible.”
