New 'Transformers' moan for Fox

Actress Megan Fox launched another broadside at the 'Transformers' franchise, saying that it does not show off her acting skills enough.

The actress admits she feels “pressured” to prove herself because she feels upstaged by the special effects used in the franchise.

She said: "I have no idea about my future career. I just hope that I can still be working in 10 years. When you're in something as successful as 'Transformers', you can't use it as a sales piece for your ability as an actress because it's all about the special effects.

"So you do sort of feel pressure to try and prove yourself. I have no idea what I'm capable of. I'm sort of finding that out now and testing my boundaries. I'm blessed with the opportunities that people are giving me - ones that I don't maybe even deserve. But I'm not complaining."

Megan can next be seen showing her talents in ‘Jennifer’s Body’ – in which she plays a cheerleader out for revenge after she is killed in a satanic ritual – and says she had to be “humiliated” to give a good performance.

She added to Parade magazine: "I'm basically being stabbed to death by this evil rocker played by Adam Brody. I didn't want to bulls**t my way through it because I would have been really embarrassed, so I had to allow myself to be humiliated and toyed with.”
