Megan Fox in GQ

HOLY #@%^! Megan Fox says it as it is

There she is, licking her lips like a playful little minx.

Terry Richardson's snapshot of Megan Fox for GQ is one of the more memorable photographs from last year (not because of its artistic merit—there's very little of that there—but for its prurient, lascivious appeal).

In writer Mark Kirby's accompanying profile ("Megan Fox Was a Teenage Lesbian"), the 23-year-old actress reveals how she fell for a Russian stripper ("She smelled like vanilla"), how protective she is of comic geeks ("They're not nerds, they're just passionate!") and how much she adores Xbox and Gears of War ("That's the upside of dating a woman who's almost a man. She likes the same things that you like, but she has a vagina!").

When asked if her character, Mikaela Banes, is more fleshed out and complex in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, she replied, "Transformers 2 is directed by Michael Bay."

I never had the urge to watch Transformers, but now, I feel like giving it a go.

Cheen Up, Twiz Your Body

Yes, we rarely comb our hair.

"I can't believe we're actually combing our hair," Rina said. "After five long years we're at it again."

Jay quickly followed suit,
using his fingers to rake his crowning glory.

Yesterday was a momentous occasion:
a professional photographer was commissioned to take our picture. We had to comb our hair.

At half past one, we went straight to The Lounge where a woman with curly hair was waiting.

Rina approached the photographer. "Is this for the group pic or is it for the individual pic?"

"Both," she replied. "Sit down."

Rina promptly sat down.

"Okay," the photographer said. "Sit back and turn you head towards me."

Rina obliged.

A camera whirred. Click.

"Cheen up," she ordered.

"Sorry?" Rina asked.

"Raise your cheen like this," the photographer said, pointing to her chin.



"Twiz your body," she ordered.

"Excuse me?"

"Twiz your body," the photographer replied.

"You want me to pluck my body?"

the photographer replied. "I said 'twiz' your body," turning her body to demonstrate



"Lumiyad ka," the photographer commanded.

"Like this?" Rina asked.

Jay snickered. "Parang Kama Sutra na Villa Estrella!"


"We're done," the photographer said. "You're next."

"Yes Ma'am," I replied nervously.

I sat down, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.
