Actress Megan Fox is awaiting the release of her new film “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” and expecting her third child with Brian Austin Green. She sat down with “Extra’s” Renee Bargh to talk about reprising her role as April O’Neil and open up about her role as mommy.
Fox gushed about her pregnancy, “I feel great. I love being pregnant, which is, a lot of women don’t feel that way, it is really uncomfortable… by the way. It is painful at parts. I feel the overall process is an amazing one. I feel so productive creating a human person that I’m so excited to meet because I know that I have such a spiritual connection to them, so I can’t wait to meet this new member of my family.” The newest member of their family is joining her other sons Noah, 3, and Bodhi, 2. Bodhi understands she is pregnant, but doesn’t care that much yet. Noah feels the opposite about the baby’s arrival. She commented, “The older one is very excited.”
Though Fox filed divorce papers in August, she will be spending Father’s Day with Brian and their boys. Of their plans, she admitted, “I don’t think we’re gonna celebrate… He never gets to eat anything fun because my house is so clean and I make him eat really clean, too, so maybe I’ll get him a German chocolate cake or something. He’ll be so happy to see junk food.”
Speaking of the boys, Megan revealed she isn’t quite ready to let them see her in “Ninja Turtles.” She explained, “I don’t let them really watch anything besides a couple of Pixar movies and a couple of Disney movies.” She emphasized that they can watch a movie featuring her when they grasp the concept that movies aren’t reality.
The 30-year-old also set the record straight on comments she made about roles she's taking after becoming a mom. “I don’t want them to see me as a woman play a character that’s degrading or being abused in a graphic way; I don’t think that’s something they’ll be able to process well… They're very sensitive.”
As for her role as April O’Neil, Fox is having a ball making another movie with her “turtle friends.” She shared, “They’re hot guys who play turtles. I have a lot of fun on set with them… The whole shoot was like an adventure…I had a good time and I’m really happy with how it turned out.”
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” hits theaters June 3.
