Megan Fox Says She And Amanda Seyfried Were ‘Horrified’ To Make Out In Jennifer’s Body

Published

on

Throughout Hollywood’s history, there have been tons of movies that originally slipped through the cracks before being embraced by audiences years later. Such is the story with Jennifer’s Body. The horror film starring Megan Fox opened in theaters ten years ago to poor reviews and fell flat with audiences with its $31 million box office earnings.

Jennifer’s Body writer Diablo Cody, who famously wrote hit comedy Juno before the now cult horror classic, cites some unfortunate marketing as the reason for Jennifer’s Body flopping. Since Megan Fox was at the height of her sex symbol status, the studio focused on objectifying the actress to sell tickets to young men over the film’s target to women on themes of female sexualization and queer representation. Perhaps it was ahead of it’s time?

Thinking back, Megan Fox remembers her and Mamma Mia’s Amanda Seyfried being timid to film one scene in Jennifer Body where the two friends make out on a bed, revealing a rare instance of bisexuality on the big screen. In Fox’s words:

Now these are the behind-the-scenes things you don’t think about! Make-out scenes such as the one between Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried in Jennifer’s Body have the camera getting as intimate with the viewer as the actors on screen. And for the two young women, the idea of baring all their blemishes was the most terrifying aspect of filming the sequence.

Counterpoint, I don’t think anyone was looking for chin acne or even thinking about that during the steamy sequence! However, it was scenes such as this one that was particularly used in the marketing of Jennifer’s Body to entice male theatergoers and largely ignore the film’s intended audience. Megan Fox told Variety in the tenth-anniversary interview that the film was sold as the ‘Megan Fox is sexy, come see this movie,’ when there was more than met the eye.

Diablo Cody also remembers predicting the film’s flop fate during a test screening with the film’s marketing target. She has one of the responses saved to this day, which read “needs moar bewbs.” Since 2009, Hollywood has certainly shifted its focus and a movie like Jennifer’s Body may have been marketed different and reached its intended audience.

Since the failure of Jennifer’s Body, Diablo Cody has moved on with critically-acclaimed projects such as Young Adult, Tully and television show United States of Tara, while Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried have found successful careers, with Jennifer’s Body remaining a deep cut (hidden gem?) during their acting beginnings.

The two actors in Bollywood wanted to marry Hema Malin

Published

on

Birthday of Bollywood’s Dream Girl – actress Hema Malini. Hema, who struck many with her beauty and acting, remains popular today. So fans are eager to know everything about them. Fans know the whole journey from Hema Malini and Dharmendra’s love story to marriage. But then there were many actors in Bollywood who wanted to marry Hema Malin. Among them are two actors who were among the leading actors at the time. Popular Bollywood actors Jitendra and Sanjeev Kumar had a strong desire to marry Hema Malini. But Hema Malini married Dharmendra.

Since Sanjeev wanted to marry Hema Malini, he decided to seek help from Jitendra. Sanjay asked Jitendra to convey the matter in his heart to Hema. But then Hema refused to marry Sanjeev. It is said that Hema refused to marry Sanjeev, but he started to like Jitendra. Jitendra and Hema confess their love to each other during the filming of the ‘bride’ movie. The couple’s family had also given permission for the marriage. Jitendra wanted to marry Hema but then he was dating Shobha.

Shobha and Jitendra were childhood friends. When Shobha learned this, he asked Hema to explain to Jitendra. But meanwhile Hema and Jitendra’s family met each other. While the two families were meeting on one side, Hema got a call from Dharmendra and expressed his love for Hema Malini. Before making any decision, Dharmendra asked Hema to meet him once.

It is said that since Dharmendra’s first wife was not willing to divorce him, Dharmendra accepted Islam to marry Hema Malini. Hema’s father V. S. Ramanujam Chakraborty was opposed to this marriage. Dharmendra and Prakash already had four children. Therefore, Ramanujam was strongly opposed to this marriage.

Dharmendra and Hema got married only after the death of their father. Hema’s mother was also opposed to the marriage, but they still married. According to Hema, Dharmendra was the main reason for his attraction. Dharmendra is just as calm and tough as his mother. Hema and Dharmendra are married with two daughters, Isha and Ahana, and both are married.
