So this one’s a better interview, even though it’s not nearly as entertaining as the last time around. It’s more rational, and it doesn’t have all the talk about speaking in tongues and leprechauns and aliens, but it shows a softer side of Megan that, I think, really surprised everyone who maybe thought it just didn’t exist. But then again, it probably surprised some people to hear Megan talking about her belief tongue-speaking and other creatures of science fiction and fantasy, so maybe we all just need to sit back and allow Megan and her gorgeousness change our belief systems one piece at a time, huh?
Anyway, from Marie Claire UK, here’s Megan Fox on being a mother, and what it means to her:
I recognize the blessings when they come – like, I recognise I’m so lucky to work with Judd [in 'This is 40'!'] – but the ultimate satisfaction for me is being with my son. All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it. … I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can. And I want to have more kids. This is where my heart is. It’s very hard for me to do this stuff, because I feel like this isn’t my job any more. My job is to be with him.
On being domestic:
I can cook, but I also want everything to look beautiful on the plate – then I get upset when people eat it. Everyone just tears through it and that makes me sad. It’s not a rewarding experience for me to cook.
On driving husband Brian Austin Green crazy with her disorganization:
I don’t make any sense: I’m a germaphobe, but I’m really messy. … I’m not disgusting – like I don’t leave food or dirty dishes out or anything – but I take my clothes off next to the laundry basket without putting them in and that drives him nuts.
More on BAG:
I just think we got lucky [to end up together]. I believe he’s my soulmate. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t take work, because we are very, very different. But we are tolerant of each other and we try to be patient with each other, and I don’t try to turn him into me and he knows not to try to turn me into him.
Last, on crying during the news, which I can personally and totally relate to:
I can’t watch the news any more. Everything makes me cry. Because everyone is someone’s child, every woman seems like someone’s mother. I have so much more patience for people and for women in general.
