Megan Fox Loses Marilyn Monroe Tattoo

Nobody quite heats up the Web like the actress Megan Fox. Her stunning looks, killer body, and, well, controversial comments (which got her fired from the last "Transformers" movie) captivate fans -- Yahoo! searches on the star are up 300% in the past day. And now, the bombshell famous for her body art says she's removing another beauty: her tattoo of Marilyn Monroe.

The image of the iconic film legend visible on Fox's forearm has seemed to be fading compared to photos from a few years ago. And the actress confirmed the news to Italian magazine Amica (where she graces the September cover) that she and her Marilyn tat are parting ways.

Fox explains in the interview, "I'm removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life." (Monroe was known to be in psychoanlaysis, and there remain many theories to the actual state of the star's mental health.)

The 24-year-old has said in the past that these same qualities inspired her to get the ink in the first place. As Us Weekly notes from a 2009 interview, the star recounted, "I really admire Marilyn Monroe, but I would never try to emulate her. I got the tattoo as a warning." She added at the time, "It warns me not to let myself be treated so badly by the film industry so that it breaks me down."

The star hardly seems broken, so maybe it's time for a new tattoo: Either way, the film star has plenty of other body art even without the siren's image: The blog On the Red Carpet details the Shakespeare quote on her right shoulder, "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies," and one on her ribs, "There once was a little girl who never knew love until a boy broke her heart."

Even if the ink is fading on Fox's forearm, the star has been taking on Monroe-esque curves. The actress also tells Amica magazine she's dumped her vegan diet, which was limited to raw fruit and vegetables, and no bread, coffee, or sugar. The star, who was so thin that some speculated she had an eating disorder, now admits, "I had lost too much weight. So now I eat a bit of everything." Her healthier bod can be seen here. Now, with more bombshell.

The "Jennifer's Body" actress does perhaps reveal the secret to her success. When asked by Amica if there was something about her body she dislikes, she responds, "Of course, I have a lot of flaws. But I do not tell them -- ever."
