Megan Fox has revealed getting the hourglass figure for Western drama Jonah Hex was painful.

The Transformers star trimmed her waistline to a mere 18 inches for the part of Lilah, which she managed with a super-tight corset.

Comparing it to wiggling a loose tooth as a child, she told Entertainment Tonight: “It hurt, but you can’t resist wanting to mess with it – I was obsessed with getting it as tight as we possibly could and, in a lot of the scenes, we got it down really small.”

Megan gets to work with Josh Brolin in Jonah Hex, based on the graphic novel of the same name.

“He’s very witty and charismatic, and so talented. He’s very likeable so it wasn’t hard to have chemistry,” she revealed.

Megan Fox In “Pirates Of The Caribbean 4?”

Now that her tumultuous tenure in the Transformers series is kaput, Megan Fox has her eye on a new bombshell role in another box office-slaying franchise: Fox is in chats to join Oscar nominee Johnny Depp and Academy Award winner Penelope Cruz in the next Pirates of the Caribbean flick.

Disney chiefs are reportedly on the hunt for an actress to play a sexy mermaid in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opening next year, and a newly-unemployed Megan is itching to land the role.

“Megan is mulling over a number of big movie offers including another sci-fi franchise and a role in the next Pirates of the Caribbean,” an informant at Mouse Headquarters tattled to Britain’s Daily Mirror Wednesday. “She would play a mermaid who charms Captain Jack but she has a dark motive.”

She sounds perfect for the role!

Former Pirates stars Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom jumped ship on the series late last year, but teaming up on the silver screen with Johnny Depp is something Megan has always dreamt of, says a snoop.

“Megan has always loved Johnny and is desperate to work with him. She’s grateful to Transformers for making her name but she’s ready to move on to better and bigger things.”

The Future Of Megan Fox

Just last year actress Megan Fox was one of Hollywood’s hottest commodities, appearing on every major magazine cover and dominating red carpets around the globe. But with news that she will no longer be a part of the film franchise that made her a star, is Megan Fox’s time in Hollywood almost up?

Despite rampant speculation that she was fired from the third installment of ‘Transformers,’ Fox has said she chose to leave the blockbuster on her own accord, with many speculating she had had enough of director Michael Bay’s “verbal abuse” and wanted out. And the beef between the two certainly comes as no surprise – in the past, Fox has referred to her former boss as “Hitler” and he reportedly said she needs to “grow up.”

But given that her other movie attempts have been box office flops (most recently, “Jennifer’s Body” debuted at a dismal number five, earning just $6.8 million), and that she’s been slammed by movie crews, will other big name directors be willing to take a gamble and hire the 23-year-old star?

“It’s never a good idea to speak negatively about a director you work with – it’s a small community,” said Hollywood producer Nathan Folks. “Actors sometimes think they can get away with anything, the egos some possess are out of control. When they stop getting work, they will learn.”

Matt Atchity, the editor in chief for movie site Rotten Tomatoes, echoed Folks’ sentiment.

“You have to question the motives of an actor who is turning down a role in a movie that is going to be massive,” Atchity said. “Michael Bay does big blockbusters. They do a ton of business and you get them in front of a bunch of people. They may not be critically acclaimed, but you can’t say that those movies are not successful.”

On the flip side, if Bay’s alleged on-set “abuse” is in any way accurate, perhaps Fox should be hailed for speaking out.

An undisclosed source close to Megan says the startlet recently had a scare with skin cancer which she disclosed in this month’s issue of Allure. The source reveals, “Megan is really frightened about skin cancer because of the harsh tanning from the last movie. She knew it’d be something Michael wouldn’t be willing to compromise on, but…it’s her life at stake. More sun damage, simply wasn’t an option.”

“If Megan was indeed verbally abused, and pulls back the curtain on what is really going on in Hollywood, and tells her story to the right person like Oprah, she could reach icon status,” said Associated Press pop culture reporter Natalie Rotman. “There has been a long history of tyrant male directors in Hollywood. If Bay really did verbally abuse Fox and she is the first to speak up to a bully director, it could make her a pioneer.”

So is Fox is going away – or is she here to stay?

“Only time will tell if Megan Fox is a hero or a liability,” Rotman added. “If she makes the right choices, she could definitely have what it takes to sustain a very lucrative career.”

And who knows, maybe she is much smarter than most give her credit for.

“If ‘Transformers 3’ tanks, then she’ll be seen as the genius who got out early,” said Atchity.

Megan Fox Fired From “Transformers” Series

Megan Fox has been dropped from the cast ofTransformers 3.

Megan, who played star the love interest of Shia LaBeouf’s Samuel James Witwicky in the first two films in the blockbuster franchise, will not return to the series when the third movie opens in 2011, a rep for Paramount Studios confimed to’s Marquee Blog on Wednesday.

The “official” word is that Fox has been dumped because T3’s storyline marks the beginning of a new chapter for Samuel and it would be better if the character were not tied down to a girlfriend — even one who looks like Mikaela Banes However, as we celeb-gawkers know, Megan has a long history of tense relations with director Michael and much of the rest of theTransformers cast and crew.

After tabloid rumors surfaced claiming that Megan would be killed off in the forthcoming Transformers feature, the beauty angrily compared her director to “Hitler” and “Napoleon” in an interview with Britain’s Wonderland Magazine.

“He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation,”Megan said at the time. “He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward.”

Shortly thereafter, members of the film’s crew posted an open letter on the director’s site, condemning the actress for her behavior on set and viciously branding Megan, “the grump of the set,” “thankless, classless, graceless,” “unfriendly,” along with a host of other unflattering adjectives.

Shia LaBeouf’s character is expected to move in a new direction with a new love interest forTransformers 3.

Megan Fox featured in the June 2010 issue of ALLURE. On plastic surgery: ‘I would encourage anyone to first speak with a therapist, to try and figure out where this want comes from, because a lot of times it’s not related to your teeth or your nose or your chin, the surgery is not going to alleviate that insecurity for you. If, then, you feel, ‘This is something that I want to do,’ then do it. It’s amazing that we have the technology to do the stuff that we do.’

On naked picture leak: ‘If I knew who took this picture, I would personally cause them harm, physical harm. I’m not a f*cking reality TV star that’s courting the paparazzi and wants my fucking picture taken all the time. I’m at my job and I’m trying to play a character and I’m trying to be serious, and this is the shit that’s happening to me. It makes me furious.’

On cooking: ‘I’ll starve to death before I’ll cook for myself. I think I could survive a week without eating. I’ll eat the same thing every day for two months and then never eat it again. I did that with Life cereal. I ate it every day for so long that the thought of it makes me upset. Only person I enjoy cooking for is my boyfriend’s son. I like arranging it on his little plate.. I like cooking for kids, for some reason.’

On suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: ‘This is a sickness, I have an illness. Every time someone uses a bathroom and they flush, all the bacteria is shot into the air. I bring silverware wherever I go. Putting my mouth where a million other mouths have been, just knowing all the bacteria that you carry in your mouth? Ucch!’
