Megan Fox bristles at anyone who thinks she’s a dummy, but she makes a pretty convincing one in a kinky new photo shoot. She’s made up to look like a mannequin and frolics with a real look-a-like mannequin. She looks anything but dumb.

She rose to fame in the “Transformers” series, but frankly, her part in the movie was secondary to the flashy CGI graphics, and critics throught she was nothing more than eye-candy.

That gave rise to intimations that the strikingly beautiful fox is something of a bimbo. But Fox wants it known that she is anything but, even if she’s been the subjection of several misconceptions, many of them her own.

Last month, Fox was dumped from “Transformer’s” by Director Michael Bay, in what was widely viewed as payback for her harsh comments about him. Fox compared Bay as a director to dictators like Hitler and Napoleon.

In a recent Q&A for Interview Magazine, which shot the stunning photos, she talks to “The Hangover’s” Zach Galifianakis, about a wide range of issues, from baby plans to being misunderstood.

She’s been dating former “90210” star Brian Austin Green off and on.

Here is a sampling of her responses.

Baby plans: “I’d really like to have a family at some point. Not that I’m not focused on my career — of course I am. But I’m just at that place where I want to spend some time at home and on my family. And if a great project comes my way, then of course I’ll take it. But I’m not actively out seeking something specific.”

Why she’s misunderstood: “I’m one of those people who fiercely guards their privacy, so I hate doing interviews. Because just in terms of the experience I’ve had with the media so far, almost everything I say, no matter how innocent my intentions are, seems to get sort of manipulated and sensationalized and turned into some ridiculous news story. It just happens so much that I don’t want to open my mouth or speak anymore, because everything I say becomes scandalous. It wears you out. So I’m a bit jaded.”

Megan feels somewhat responsible for some of what’s gone on in the press.

On her own misstatements: “In the past I’ve been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality, so I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what’s really going on in my life.”

“So I have sort of aided the media in printing these misconceptions, which I regret. I’ve just come to the realization at this point that if I don’t feel like sharing, then I’m just not going to share. But I’m not going to go out of my way to mislead people or keep them at a distance, because that doesn’t really get me anywhere either.”

Her next film is “Jonah Hex” with Josh Brolin, and after that, she’ll appear in “Passion Play” with Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray.
