Megan Fox has revealed why she doesn’t drink alcohol anymore — and it’s all because she got a bit too drunk at the 2009 Golden Globes.
During a recent interview with Who What Wear, the 35-year-old actress revealed that at the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen premiere, she was seated at a table with Blake Lively and all three of the Jonas brothers (Kevin, Joe and Nick). There were “giant bottles of Moët” placed in front of them, she said, adding that she went through “multiple glasses” of the bubbly.
“Now I don’t drink, and this is why,” she said. “I was belligerent and said a bunch of s— I shouldn’t have said on the red carpet after that.”
During an on-screen interview with Giuliana Rancic, Fox called herself a “doppelgänger for Alan Alda” and added, “I’m a tranny. I’m a man.” She went on to say she was “horrified and embarrassed” to be attending the show and told Rancic that her then-partner, Brian Austin Green, was not present because he didn’t want to be her date.
Revisiting her first Golden Globes in 2009, the Jennifer’s Body star recalled getting into “a lot of trouble” for her comments. She said she couldn’t remember exactly what she shared but was positive that it stirred up controversy.

Fox later told Esquire in 2013 that she realized she doesn’t enjoy the effects of alcohol or drugs on her body. “I can’t stand pills. I don’t like drinking. I don’t like feeling out of control,” she said during the interview. “I have to feel like I’m in control of my body.”
