Since Josh Brolin went on record to admit that Jonah Hex was a bad film that “got away from its original vision” he has been trying to recover his reputation.
But apparently he isn’t done making statements and this next one raises an eyebrow as he defends Megan Fox comparing her to Katharine Hepburn.
Brolin feels that like Hepburn, Fox just isn’t appreciated in her own time. According to Brolin:
“Katharine Hepburn, one of the most appreciated actresses today, was hated back in her heyday. She was box office poison … They didn’t understand her. Yet now we all look back and go, ‘Okay, she was incredible.'”
He went on to add: “I would love to be the person who puts Megan in a film in which she can actually do something interesting.”
Now at this point, I would say this is utter nonsense. This girl is nothing but a pretty face, which is the same criticism that Hepburn got in her day.
But maybe one day a project will come out and Fox will blow us all away and people will talk about that film wondering where she has been hiding this talent.
I’m just not holding my breath.
