Strange news! Actress Megan Fox has finally started the process of having that huge Marilyn Monroe portrait tattoo removed from her forearm. While the starlet has always deeply admired Monroe's legendary on and off-screen beauty, on Jan. 15, the New York Post reported that the new celebrity mom has reconsidered having such a troubled figure for a role model emblazoned on herself as body art. That's the reason why when she showed up on red carpets the second week of Jan. in 2013 it looked as if the famous face permanently inked on her creamy white skin mysteriously appeared to be vanishing.
In a recent interview with Esquire magazine, Fox revealed that after doing historical research on the life of the blonde bombshell she began to realize what a tragic figure she was (historically speaking). The more she began to think about it, she realized that carrying around an image that was associated with such powerful negativity might not be the best totem to sport as a family crest (of sorts).
She and tattooed husband Brian Austin Green recently had their first child together, a baby boy named Noah. Fox is totally embracing the role of motherhood – – something not expected by many apparently, as was implied by a recent article about the star celebs featured on Contact Music. Joking also about her poor choice of a celebrity tattoo, Fox told Esquire magazine that her new celebrity heroes now that she is a new mom are Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster.
Was she kidding? Probably.
Megan Fox is known for having a very dark and bawdy but still droll sense of humor. She recently made a special guest appearance on her husband's new TV show "Wedding Band" playing a funny character role and also starred in the new comedy film "This Is 40."
Her Marilyn Monroe portrait tattoo has been a subject of considerable controversy in part because of the size and obvious placement. Because the tatt has to be covered with make-up for many photo shoots and movie roles, it has created many problems for the otherwise aesthetically pleasing actress -- particularly when it came time for her to pose in underwear ads for Armani.
The faint outline of the famous tattoo could still be seen on her forearm when she and Green attended the Golden Globe Awards in 2013. Her Shakespeare quote tattoo was also fully visible on her shoulder thanks to the strapless gown she was wearing.
