Megan Fox: A Theory

Via e-mail and voicemail and watercooler, the pressure is on. The (predominantly) male friends of Flickgrrl want to talk Megan Fox, fetching co-star of Transformers II. What can I say but that in Transformers and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen she struck me as very pretty? What can I say but that in the tabloids, she gives saucy quote? What can I say but that her right shoulderblade is inscribed with a quote from King Lear (Act V, Scene III): "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies" -- a line from Cordelia's soliloquy?

Via e-mail and voicemail and watercooler, the pressure is on. The (predominantly) male friends of Flickgrrl want to talk Megan Fox, fetching co-star of Transformers II. What can I say but that in Transformers and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen she struck me as very pretty? What can I say but that in the tabloids, she gives saucy quote? What can I say but that her right shoulderblade is inscribed with a quote from King Lear (Act V, Scene III): "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies" -- a line from Cordelia's soliloquy?

I can say that green-eyed brunette possesses coloring that is a distinct asset. As legendary cinematographer Nestor Almendros observed, actors with dark hair and light eyes -- or the reverse -- are uniquely cinegenic. Almendros called this his "Theory of complementary contrasts" and his proofs were brown-eyed blonde Catherine Deneuve and blue-eyed brunet Mel Gibson.  Vanessa Williams is another excellent example. Consider this an open thread to discuss Fox, cinegenic coloring and stars with names that describe their personalities.
