TMNT opens in theaters August 8th
A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to interview Megan Fox for the upcoming movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I can finally share all the details, here are some of the highlights of the interview
Megan Fox told us that she grew up watching TMNT and she begged to be in the movie. Ten days into filming she realized she was pregnant with her second baby. She was working 18 hours a day because she was needed for most scenes.
Megan said that in Hollywood you do not want to show any type of weakness and you have to be stronger than men
Q: How has being a mom changed the projects that you will work on? (TIME)
A: My Ego is not wrapped in to it
Q: How has motherhood changed what projects you pick from now on?
A: It does. I've never…I've always only made like one or two movies a year because I've never
been ambitious and I've never been really career oriented. It's always something that I do, as
a lot of other people do, to pay bills and that's how you make your money. And it's not like…I
don't feel like my ego is wrapped up into it and I don't feel like it's necessarily where my heart
is at all, and so now that I have kids and I feel like I do know where my heart is obviously, it's
about getting up the nerve to work because I hate leaving and it's really difficult.
Q: What kind of advice can you give to like young girls that may be experiencing any type of lowself esteem issues?
A: I mean it's hard when you're young. You're just going to go through that. When you're young,
you're also dealing with hormones and that is a whole battle in it of itself. I know that just
from being post partum. And like you turn into a different human being for a minute and
there's nothing that can be done about it. So a part of growing up is dealing with that, and
you're going to suffer through some low self esteem, but I feel it's hard to encourage a
teenager to be in touch with their higher self because they don't understand what that is yet
and maybe they're not supposed to. But if you have a voice inside yourself and you feel like
you understand what is right and what is wrong, all I can say is don't be afraid to follow what
you know is right and understand that not everyone is going to like you all of the time, most
definitely not. It's not going to happen.
