After getting the boot in the last installment of “Transformers” and a couple of movie flops, Megan Fox is hoping a comeback in “Friends with Kids,” a film co-starring her with Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig.
Then she has 3 more movies in the line-up: “The Dictator” with Sascha Baron Cohen, the new Judd Apatow film “This is Forty” starring Leslie Mann, Jason Segel and Paul Rudd, and “Luna” with Chris Evans and Zoe Saldana.
Here are excerpts from her Amica interview:
On what’s happening to her Marilyn Monroe tattoo:
“I’m removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.”
On her navel piercing:
“Oh, this? 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.
On being dubbed as a ’sex-bomb’:
“What they call me sexy is not something that I can operate or shut down at will, but something that shines through as a journey, from how I talk, how I move. On the screen, I seem very sure of myself, but the real world is the place where I feel more conflict.”
On if she’d be happy if she had a daughter who wanted to be an actress:
“I would not be happy but wouldn’t prevent her from doing so. I just would hope [my child] had a strong character, because you have to be strong to do this job. If she was weak and too emotional, I would not advise it.”
On whether there’s something about her body that she dislikes:
“Of course, I have a lot of flaws. But I do not tell them – ever.”
On how she stays so fit:
“For a year and a half, until about four months ago, I followed a strict vegan diet based on raw fruits and vegetables, no bread, sugar and coffee. But I had lost too much weight. So now I eat a bit of everything. I train three times a week doing circuit training (a series of exercises with tools that improve muscle power, etc) with my trainer Harley Pasternak (the guru of the five factors Diet).”
