Angelina Jolie versus Megan Fox
Angelina Jolie vs Megan Fox - Who is the Sexiest Woman Alive?
Angelina Jolie versus Megan Fox?
I thought that when you want to get people riled up, you usually mention politics or religion.
But I have noticed that there is another way to get people lined up into two camps.
Compare Angelina Jolie to Megan Fox.
When I did my Serinda Swan Hub, I mentioned how she might come up to give both of them competition, but I didn't realize that a lot of people would just focus on the Angelina versus Megan idea.
I should have known better.
The Megan Fox / Angelina Jolie comparison seems to get both their fans going.
So I thought I would look into this and see just why everyone (their fans basically) get so worked up about this.
I mean Hollywood should be big enough for both of them right?
Well it appears that just like a town in an old Western, it ain't.
So like a big time prize fight (or in this case a down and dirty catfight) let's look at them both and try to see who's gonna be standing when the smoke clears.
Born: June 4, 1975
Height: Five foot six inches and a half tall (according to CelebHeights.com)
Weight: Depends on the time of day and what tabloid you read.

Pretty impressive record, but take into account that her last major win was the Academy Award in 2000.
That was ten years ago.
And Angelina is an author. She wrote a book, Notes From My Travels.
Next, the Challenger, Megan Fox
Born: May 16, 1986
Height: Five foot six
Weight: 114 pounds
Record: 7 films (4 in production or post production), 1 direct to DVD, 1 TV movie, 2 TV starring roles and 3 TV guest appearances.
Won: Teen Choice Award (Choice Female Hottie and Choice Summer Movie Star Female for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Scream Award (Best Sci-Fi Actress, again for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) and Spike Video Game Awards (Best Performance By A Human Female for...wait for it...Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen)
Well here you can pretty much see that here, Angelina mops the canvas up with her younger opponent.
But in all fairness, critically Angelina's career didn't really take off till her 10th film, George Wallace (which was a made for TV movie).
Sure she got some fame in the cult hit Hackers before that, but Megan got a lot of press for Transformers too.
Like any good fight, there are pre-fight interviews....
"It's a lack of creativity on the media's part, Because I have tattoos and dark hair and I was in an action movie? That's as far as the similarities extend. I'm not the next anyone."
Megan Fox - Entertainment Weekly
“Is she aiding in Africa or sitting in on U.N. conferences? Donating herself to something bigger than Hollywood? I’m not familiar with her work, is she an Oscar contender?”
Angelina Jolie - Life & Style magazine
"She suddenly started yelling at a male admirer who’d made a comment she’s heard a thousand times: “You look a lot like ANGELINA JOLIE!”
“Look, are you aware of who ‘FHM’ magazine voted the Sexiest Woman Alive? ME! Not Angelina Jolie…it was ME! God, Jolie was lucky to make Number Nine!”
“I’m only 21 and she’s like…ancient! I’m much hotter than her.”
Megan Fox - National Enquirer (Okay, I know the source is the National Enquirer, maybe Aliens made her say it)
“I don’t think she is, no. She’s one of our finest actresses. She’s gotten to that point in her career,”
“Megan is just starting out, but she has a lot of potential,”
“Maybe Megan will start doing the things that Angelina is so well known for. Angie is known for helping with kids and for her concern for others. I think that would be wonderful for all of the kids if Megan were to do the same,”
- Jon Voight (trying to find the middle ground on the Angelina Jolie/Megan Fox issue)
Megan did say this also...
"I love Angelina Jolie. She’s someone I admire and look up to. She’s my favorite actress in Hollywood. I just love that she’s incredibly honest, and I feel that she’s not afraid to be herself. She tells you exactly what’s on her mind."
Megan Fox - Heat magazine
So what about looks?
Okay, that is very subjective and up to each person.
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" you know...
All I can do is present the stats.

Honestly, the list just keeps going, but I think you get the idea.
But I had to mention that Angelina was on the Time 100 (a list of the 100 most influential people in the world) in 2006 and Forbes' annual Celebrity 100 list in 2009.
And that she's a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
Angelina Jolie versus Megan Fox
So what's the final verdict?
Well other than getting the WWE to have a Steel Cage match at Wrestlemania, here's the only way I can decide.
You can vote and tell the world who you think is el más caliente....

Angelina Jolie vs Megan Fox - The Verdict
I'm gonna have to call this one.
For one thing Angelina crushed Megan in the poll...70% to 22%
And it kinda looks like Megan's career now is gonna be mainly B-Movies where Angie is directing movies like "In the Land of Blood and Honey".
Since I wrote this Hub back in 2010, Angie has been nominated for a People's Choice Award for Favorite Action Star, a People's Choice Award for Favorite Female Movie Star, a Saturn Award for Best Actress and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy.
Megan has been nominated for the 30th Golden Raspberry Awards - Worst Actress Of 2009 (for two movies in the same year, Jennifer's Body and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as Mikaila Baines), Worst Screen Couple of 2009, Kids' Choice Awards - Favorite Movie Actress, MTV Movie Awards - Best WTF Moment, Teen Choice Awards - Choice Female Hottie, Choice Movie Actress: Horror/Thriller, Golden Raspberry Award - Worst Actress and Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble.
Are we seeing a pattern yet?
But hey...Megan turns 26 this year, she still has lots of time to get her career going
