Megan Fox is known for speaking her mind – whether it's revealing intimate details about her sex life or explaining why she thinks Superman is "lame" – and the actress believes if she were a man, Hollywood wouldn't blow everything she says out of proportion. She would like everyone to know that even "Earth's Hottest Girl" likes to make a few crass jokes – so deal with it.
"People are not used to seeing starlets have a sense of humor, especially an off-center, foul sense of humor," Megan told Esquire's June issue. "I think it would be different if I were a guy. Seth Rogen can say whatever he wants and people know it's a joke."

The actress believes her dark and dirty sense of what's funny has lead people to the wrong conclusions about who she is– particularly her personal life.
"Because of some things I've said, some jokes I've made, I've got this wild, crazy reputation. Like I'm into sex with knives," the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" star explained with a laugh. "People assume that I'm really promiscuous. There's a difference between being very sexual and being promiscuous. I'm not promiscuous. I'm extraordinarily sexual within a monogamous relationship. Nothing's off-limits. But that has nothing to do with experiencing a lot of people. I've only had two boyfriends my whole life."
One of those boyfriends is Brian Austin Green, who she recently split with. Megan refuses to comment on reports that the two are in couple's therapy trying to work out their issues, only telling the mag, "You are catching me at a really vulnerable point in my life."
And based on her comments regarding her on-screen male counterparts, the couple's split might be for the better.
"Actors aren't necessarily the most intelligent guys you're ever gonna come across," she said. "They're so easily manipulated that if you have any sort of control over your own sexuality, they're just f****d."
Megan might have men figured out, but when it comes to her own sexual prowess – she's still figuring parts of it out, especially being labeled a Hollywood sex symbol.
"If you know how to take control of it, then it can be powerful," she said of her modern day pin-up girl status. "But I have no idea how to handle it yet, how to deal with it. 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 ever 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."
Scarlett isn't the only Hollywood starlet that the actress is trying to avoid being lumped together with.
"Because I'm young and female, people want me to be like some Disney Channel, supersafe, sex-before-marriage-is-bad, Taylor Swift, I-date-someone-with-a-promise ring, bulls**t girl," she continued.
But Megan's liberal stance on sexuality and dating other women should keep her out of Hollywood's promise ring crowd.
"I think people are born bisexual and then make subconscious choices based on the pressures of society. I have no question in my mind about being bisexual," she told the mag. "But I'm also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I'd never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man."
And as for reports that she's slated to take over Angelina Jolie's "Lara Croft" franchise or strap a truth lasso to her hip as "Wonder Woman," the outspoken actress said those reports are "complete Internet bulls**t."
And Hollywood better never ask her to star opposite The Man of Steel.
"I just think he's a lame superhero," she said of Superman. "He's not interesting. He's not dark. He's just kind of a d*****bag."
