Megan Fox: People question my intelligence

Megan Fox believes people doubt her intelligence.

The 28-year-old actress, who starred in Eminem and Rihanna's 'Love the Way You Lie' music video in 2010, thinks people question how smart she is because of the way she comes across.

Speaking in the April issue of Harper's Bazaar Arabia, she said: "I would say most people assume that I'm not very smart or educated or earnest, because I have this image that I'm sort of narcissistic, chasing attention, and wanting people to like me.

"It makes me laugh because I've done plenty of interviews and when you read the article from beginning to end you can see that I'm not your typical music video model."

The brunette beauty - who has Noah, two, and Bodhi, one, with husband Brian Austin Green - is often praised for her red carpet style but she has admitted she hates getting dressed up for glamorous events because she doesn't get to wear what she likes.

She explained: "I've never had fun getting dressed up and going on the red carpet because there's pressure there. You're not just getting dressed because you think this is an amazing outfit. You're getting dressed because there's an obligation from your side to a certain designer and then you have to go and walk the carpet hoping that someone else isn't wearing something similar.

"I'm just sort of the mannequin that they send out, so it's just not a fun process for me."
