Neither. The only actress I go see because of her beauty is Eva Mendes. But I think Eva is a decent actress.

Perhaps, but her having tattoos depends ont he director's "vision" for the character and the types, places and styles of tattoos she has may not fit very many characters. (The madonna tattoo and the lettering on her right shoulder stick out in my mind the most.)

If you're a director of a movie and you've a choice between equaly talented actresses, both are of the same attractivness and using one of them means no wardrobe restrictions or special makeup and one means having to have her always in long sleeves, no exposed back, or having to use heavy make-up/CGI who are you going to choose?
In that particular set of circumstances I'd hire whoever could put the most butts in the seats. Covering up tattoos with makeup isn't that big a deal.

Fox made her choice to get the tattoos. If they hold back her career, that's really her problem. I have no issue with them, personally, but I don't think they should be used as an excuse.

Angelina Jolie's extensive tattooing doesn't seem to negatively affect her career.

On her day, though, Jolie can act. Fox ? Not so much.

True, but it doesn't take a whole lot of acting talent to be successful in Hollywood. Ask Keanu Reeves.

Well, by Fox's own admission, she hasn't exactly been called upon to do an awful lot capital-A Acting in her roles so far, and she's said she doesn't blame those who've doubted her acting ability, because she hasn't had to show any such ability thus far. Refreshingly honest, I thought...

^So, what you do is you try out for a few smaller, lower budget movies in between blockbusters. This is why Kate Winslet > Megan Fox.

To be honest, Winslet's more attractive to me too.

And to be perfectly honest, Bay isn't the best director to get a person's acting chops out. Ben Affleck, I'm looking at you.

What about when Michael Bay makes a movie out of a Jane Austen novel and casts Megan Fox and Ashton Kutcher?

I think her in Jonah Hex will be a bigger movie than Jennifer's Body.

I'll see it in-theater because while I have little interest in Fox I think a great deal of Cody's work.
