Megan Fox, the American actress and star of the Transformers movies, recently began the process of removing a tattoo of Marilyn Monroe on her arm because she doesn't want to emulate the lifestyle of the iconic blonde bombshell. "I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult," she explained to Esquire magazine. "It's like when you visualize something for your future. I didn't want to visualize something so negative."

Fox compared Monroe to Lindsay Lohan, suggesting neither actress was reliable. "She wasn't powerful at the time. She was sort of like Lindsay (Lohan). She was an actress who wasn't reliable, who almost wasn't insurable ... She had all the potential in the world, and it was squandered," she explained. The actress - who recently welcomed her first child with husband Brian Austin Green - has an altogether quieter life planned for her herself. "I can't stand pills," she said, adding, "I don't like drinking. I don't like feeling out of control. You have to understand, there I feel safe. I was raised to believe that you're safe in God's hands. But I don't feel safe with myself." Fox - who recently starred in Judd Apatow's This Is 40 - says she admires a different type of Hollywood icon, The Killers actress Eva Garner. "She had power. She was a broad. She got what she wanted and said what she needed," said Fox.

Fox has no movies projects scheduled for the year ahead, and is expected to spend time with her new-born daughter.
