Megan Fox gains 10 pounds for Transformers



It finally happened -- a Hollywood blockbuster production told its lead actress that she's way too skinny! Look outside for pigs with wings. Megan Fox told Fox News that she had to pack on the pounds after losing a bunch of weight for her role in Jennifer's Body, a Diablo Cody joint about a cheerleader who kills boys at her high school.

Tbdmeganfox071608 “I should have toned up for Transformers but I’m really lazy. I had to put on weight,” she said. “I’d lost a lot of weight and got really scrawny, but I was told I had to put on size for Transformers because (director) Michael (Bay) doesn’t like skinny girls.”

So what was her secret to bulking up (like The Juice* needs tips)?

“I just stopped eating,” she said. “I don’t eat very healthy anyway -- I have a serious sugar tooth, so now I eat red-velvet cake before I go to bed every night, and if you eat meals later, you’ll put on weight faster, so I had dinner at 10 p.m.”

Next up for Megan: A catalog gig for Lane Bryant.
