Megan Fox Turns Down Next Tomb Raider!

| Filed under: Angelina JolieFilm FlickersMegan FoxYoung Hollywood


We guess she wants to have 'artistic integrity?'


Megan Fox apparently decided she doesn't want to be compared to the likes of Angelina Jolie, which is way she has turned down the opportunity to succeed her as Lara Croft in the next Tomb Raider flick!

A source says:

“The offer has been on the table for Megan for a while but she’s reluctantly turned it down. She’s the logical choice to play Lara and she loves the character but the comparison with Angelina is too much. It looks like the movie will now star an unknown.”


Her limited acting ability would probably work in a Tomb Raider flick - it's not like Angie was really pushing her far superior range when she donned the notorious tank top and excavated some tombs!

Whatevs. Her loss.

We can't wait until she tries to segue into real acting roles - and then crashes and burns!!

    i am extremely disappointed. :(

  2. 2

    well its true. nobody can play that part better than Angelina.

  3. 3

    Ew! She shouldn't do ANY movie EVER again.

  4. 4

    She is so annoying.

  5. 5

    what the fuck do you know about acting ability tubbo?

  6. 6

    this chick confuses the hell outta me…first she pushed the Angelina comparisons herself and now she doesn't want them? then why did she die her hair black,got all those tribal sand-script tattoos and play the vixen role for the masses? not to mention getting her lips pumped?!? i used to like her but now she's losing me…

  7. 7

    holy thumbs batman!

  8. 8

    however that is one hot pic up above.

  9. 9

    YES! Fucking SCORE. Keep that dumbass AWAY from Tomb Raider! But odds are, some idiot director will cast someone pretty and the script and movie in general will suck. Sure, lets screw up my favorite gaming series of all time even more.

  10. 10

    I never understood her appeal. People are always raving about how she's "the hottest woman on the planet" or whatever, but I don't see it. She looks plastic and has no talent. Well, other than fucking for roles.

  11. 11

    I'd Raid her Tomb, if you know what I mean…

    By that I mean sex.

    Total boner move.

  13. 13

    Damn, Perez is such a little bitch. I remember when he kept going on and on how amazing she is. LOL. Can't wait till you start hatiing Gaga.

    WTF! If she took the role, you would have bashed her for trying to be too much like Angelina Jolie. But even though she didn't take the role, you bash her anyways.

    I think she would be great as Laura Croft, but I can understand why she didn't take the role. If you would watch some of her interviews, she doesn't like being compared to Angelina. People talk about her tattoos…well she got many of them before she even became famous. And contrary to what someone else wrote, her hair is naturally dark brown.

    Give her a break. I can't wait until Passion Play comes out. Maybe people's opinons about her will change.

  16. 16

    who are you fat body? what do you offer society?

  17. 17

    That's a shame. Although dunno if she'd be able to do the accent …

  18. 18

    This shit is such a joke. You LOVED her six months ago. How can you just turn on people for absolutely nothing? As far as i can recall she called Micheal Bay crazy (total douche btw) and you started talking shit. Are we not supposed to call you on this? Lametown…

  19. 19

    Flangelina's far superior acting range…BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    May I present the following witnesses for the Crown:
    A Mighty Heart
    etc etc etc…you know the monotone/bad accent drill

  20. 20

    How can she have artistic integrity when she did the stupid ass movie Jennifer's body?

  21. 21

    If Angelina isn't in it, Iwouldn't watch it anyway!

  22. 22

    Must be nice all these actors/actresses get HANDED ROLES, THEN TURN THEM DOWN! FUCK them and FUCK HER!!!

  23. 23

    how she turns down DIS ROLE N YET SHE DID JENNIFERS BODY…. which btw was WACK!!!!!!

  24. 24

    theres nothing stupid about it. since the day the girl hit the scene..everyones compared her to angie..she wants to make her own mark, and taking a role angie had wont help her seperate what she wants to be and what people compare her too.
    this girl cant win with you - if she took the role..you would have said she was tryin to be just like angie…she doesnt take it..and shes stupid.

  25. 25

    What a FUCKING IDIOT. I think they both SUCK SHIT at acting and are in horrible films, dont get me wrong, but if I were an actress, I wouldnt mind being compared to one of the richest actresses and being offered roles she once did. "No thank you, I don't need $30 million dollars." She's gonna kick herself in the teeth one day

  26. 26

    Geez, GossipCop.com already said earlier today this story is not true.

  27. 27

    too bad the movie is too good for her

  28. 28

    If she was taking the part you'd criticize that too you jealous bastard.

  29. 29

    I fucking Love Megan and Angelina, but I think that part will always belong to Jolie.

  30. 30

    She's a dope. Take the money. These parts are not chasing her down the street. She would make millions for a 2 months work. It didn't hurt Angelina Jolie's career one bit

  31. 31

    Umm no. They shouldn't even be making more Tomb Raider movies. Of course she turned it down.

  32. 32

    MAN ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. 33

    yikes- there's that creepy thumb again!

  34. 34

    I think she got too full of herself, she needs to tone down her behavior and get a role in a movie that no one would expect.

  35. 35

    angies superior range???what, pouting with a gun in her hand or making the vein pop out of her head to look like she has emotions…. please bitch.

  36. 36

    She likes the easy roles and shitty movies like in "Jennifer's Body".

  37. 37

    Toe Thumbs!

  38. 38

    Not only the Angelina comparison, she doesn't want to be in Two franchise movies that does not stretch your acting skills. The giril is looking for hit drama movies and not popcorn movies.

  39. 39

    She is a dumbass. I love tombraider(the videogame) I liked ang in the first one before she dated brad pitt

    This is such a slap in the face to all the young British actresses out there. Lara Croft is like a British icon to a lot of people. Offer it to a woman with the right looks, attitude and accent. Not some hollywood bimbo who will struggle to master a basic RP English accent.

  41. 41

    I hope she does extreme anal porn instead.

  42. 42

    wow, her thumbs ARE pretty bad, LOL.
    oh well
    can't be completely perfect!

    oh, right, tomb raider.
    um, she's right. the comparisons to jolie would be endless.
    and hella annoying.
    better off sparing us all from that :D

  43. 43

    Why THE FUCK does this girl ALWAYS have a finger or thumb in her mouth?…….oh, I get it. It's supposed to make guys imagine their dick in her mouth. Sexy? NO. Lame is more like it…

  44. 44

    Angelina looks like she can kick ass and actually hurt somebody (despite being quite skinny she has that badass quality to her) but itty bitty Megan Fox with kicking ass and waving a gun? Thats comedy at its finest. How did the producers not call Michelle Rodriguez yet? Shed be perfect for it, and one of the only women who looks good with a weapon. Thank God Fox had enough sense to turn it down!

  45. 45

    Re: fddfdfdf – Thank you! Megan is cute but she is no Angie.

  46. 46

    Look at the FUNKY THUMB!!! Totally not HOT!!!! She can NOT act at all. A pretty stick with tits and bad skin is what we call her in Michigan. Probably what everyone is thinking: How long til she ends up like LiLo?!?!?!?! Passing up on this role was a huge, HUGE mistake in her crappy career. Am I hating, HELL Ya I am!!! Sick of her crappy movies even being printed.

  47. 47

    Of course. Do you think she can actually do the accent?

  48. 48

    Does this idiot know that every actress in Hollywood would kill to get this role let alone have it offered to them. Her career is going no where fast and she only has herself to blame. Tomb Raider did wonders for Angie and she was already a household name. Megan is not.

  49. 49

    wow…is ANYONE else noticing that THUMB!?!

    Now I'm no Jerry Seinfeld, but as hot as she is… ewwwww!!

  50. 50

    What a silly cow! Like she could better? Im surprised they even offered her the role. Its the attitude I dont get, she thinks she is better than it, what arrogance. I wonder what she thinks of all the tomb raider fans?

    I cant wait until she shows her self up, everyone always says she is unprofessional, unappreciative and fake for the cameras. No point being attractive if everything else is vile I think and that seems to be her only selling point that I am aware of. I Cant wait until she is gone from the big screen!

  51. 51

    did you SEE the making of tomb raider dipshit?
    did you see the stunts Ange did?
    do you do this stupid shit on purpose?
    are you really this naive or do you do it to get a response from people?
    you really are the worst gossip writer ever
    your time in this industry is limited

  52. 52

    Smart move. Doesn't want to live in the shadow of the most beautiful sexiest woman in the world. She wants to find her own niche.

  53. 53

    OH damn I wish she would have said yes!

  54. 54

    She's dumb. Something like Tomb Raider would really boost her career, that franchise is so popular. The only reason why people like her is because she is hot, there is no way people are going to take her seriously, she really isn't that great of an actress…

  55. 55

    I like her. Women like to hate on her the same way they like to hate on Angelina , but I like her because she doesn't seem to gve a shit and she is honest about not being the best actress in the world and she has been rather open about her insecurities. For the life of me , I'll never understand why women stick up for Jen Aniston , who has got to be the most sad, lame , desperate , pathetic person known to Hollywood.

  56. 56

    then cast me!!!!! haha but seriously.

  57. 57

    LOL :D

  58. 58

    Wow, she is foolish! I hear she is a nighmare on set and the crew hates her. She's rude and stuck up.

  59. 59

    i'm willing to overlook her snootiness due to the fact that she's GORGEOUS.

  60. 60

    Re: BlahBlah Blah – I saw the movie Jennifer's Body. I enjoyed it. She agreed to do the movie because she was a fan of Diablo Cody, and loved the satire and humor that was written in the script. This means that Megan does not have a 'Big Head,' like some actors and actresses in Hollywood. I admire her, actually. Her comments are not rehearsed by her PR agents. She stays out of the party limelight. She has has only one boyfriend since she was 18. This is more than I can say for all the serial daters in Hollywood!

  61. 61

    I don't think it matters if she takes the role or not, she'll be compared to angelina for the rest of her career and always fall short. All of her roles will be comparable to other movies Angelina did. Shes just gonna have to settle for 2nd best!

  62. 62

    Have you all noticed that Foxy has got half thumbs…. Yishhhh. :P

  63. 63

    good, she cant act at all, to be the main character you need at least a tiny bit of talent

  64. 64

    Her face is lighter than her body. too much makeup

  65. 65

    Megan Fox could NEVER replace Angelina Jolie for Tomb Raider! The only person (I think) who could play the role of Lara Croft if Angelina's not going to do it is Michelle Ryan…she came pretty close to a similar character when she was in Dr Who, Planet of the dead and she played it damned well!

  66. 66

    Megan Fox could never replace Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft!
    If they're going to recast I'd go for Michelle Ryan. She played a similar character in Dr Who, Planet of the dead and did a pretty damned good job (in my oppinion of course)

  67. 67

    yeah. she's dumb for turning it down. she would have been in a film that could have either proven or not proven her acting ability. which she prob doesn't have any. her only line in transformers is, "SAM!!!!"

  68. 68

    I vote that they whip my ass in to shape, and then have me play Lara Croft…just for the irony. Woohoo for that pretty much being my name.

  69. 69

    WTF? Is she insane? she wud"ve been great 4 the role….

  70. 70

    I'm glad she turned it down. seriously. All she would do is screw up Tomb Raider with her completely unskilled, and downright dreadful acting. The only thing she is decent at, is getting her picture taken, but even then she has to open that foolish mouth of hers. ugh. what a dissapointment. a girl that beautiful, being that downright arrogant and stupid.
