'I don't want to attract negative energy': Why Megan Fox is removing her tattoo of tragic Marilyn Monroe

Fading star: Megan Fox, pictured here at a Jaguar event in April with her husband Brian Austin Green, is having her Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed

Megan Fox has revealed she is removing her tattoo of Marilyn Monroe in a bid to avoid attracting 'negative energy'.

The 25-year-old actress, whose acting career has floundered in recent years, began laser treatment on her forearm inking earlier this year.

She was quizzed about her etching of the iconic blonde bombshell, who died in 1962 at the age of 36, by Italian magazine Amica.

Fox, who was spotted on the set of This is 40 in LA today, explained: 'I'm removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar.

Before and after: Megan described the screen icon as a 'negative' character

'I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.'

It's not the only body adornment she has grown to regret.

When asked about her navel piercing, she said: 'I did it when I was 16-years-old because I was a fan of Britney Spears. The only time I tried to imitate someone else.

'But then I thought it was tacky and so I removed it when I turned 20.'

Former Transformers star Megan has around nine tattoos - other inkings include; a quote on her shoulder reading 'We will all laugh at gilded butterflies' and a tribal mark on her left wrist.

She also has a tribute to her Passion Play co-star Mickey Rourke, 57.

The tattoo, over the right side of her rib cage, reads: 'Those who danced were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.'

She told 'Mickey is such a beautiful, wonderful human being. He's so genuine and so sweet and so talented. I just love him to death.

'I actually got a tattoo that is sort of in honour of him. It's on my ribs.'

While the Passion Play actors hit it off, the film was not such a success - it flopped in spectacular fashion and went straight to DVD.

It was yet another blow to Megan's acting career, which has nosedived since she parted ways with the successful Transformers franchise.

She no doubt hoping to turn around her fortune with her new Judd Apatow project This Is 40, which also stars Chris O'Dowd and Jason Segal.

It is rumoured to be a spin off film from 2007 hit comedy Knocked Up which starred Seth Rogan and Katherine Heigl.
