The sexy star, who is a mum of two, is not a fan of micro-blogging sites, admitting her brief dalliance with Twitter was not fun.

"I'm not a huge fan of social media," she tells news show Entertainment Tonight. "I think it's really toxic for our youth culture.

"There's literally a hierarchy in schools of who's the cool kid, based on who has the most followers and who has the most likes, and it's a really terrible message to wake up every day and have your kids going like, 'Who likes my photo?' or 'Who's following me?'"

'New Girl' Gets A New Girl As Megan Fox Fills In For Zooey Deschanel


Megan Fox Zooey Deschanel

Producers of Fox comedy ‘New Girl’ have revealed their plan for how to cope with lead actress Zooey Deschanel’s upcoming maternity leave, and they’ve landed a pretty sizeable name to temporarily replace her. Transformers star Megan Fox will be moving into the attic as part of a multi-episode arc during the new fifth season.

Essentially, since Deschanel's pregnancy was never part of the series' storyline, the producers will explain away Deschanel’s absence through a plot in which her character Jess is sequestered on jury duty for a time. At that point, Fox will move into the apartment for a while. She’s to play a character called ‘Raegan’, a “gorgeous, straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep who comes to town on business and shakes things up in the loft,” according to Fox’s press release.
