Megan Fox lands on Cosmopolitan’s April 2012 cover flaunting her sultry looks. Inside the magazine, in the accompanying interview, the 25-year-old ‘Friends With Kids’ actress opens up about her tough-girl reputation, her surprising new film roles and exploring her comedic side onscreen, but also talks about love, her romantic life, and having children.
“It’s because I have tattoos and I say curse words, and apparently, that’s crazy. I think maybe I give off this energy of seeming like I don’t give a f***, and that’s misinterpreted. But I’m not wild,” she says about her bad-girl image. She then explains that, “I’ve gotten to the point where I just laugh about it. The tabloids can say whatever they want. But it’s not me. I’m a homebody. My husband is my best friend. That’s who I really am.”
If most of her career Megan has mostly played sexy, seductive chicks, the gorgeous actress is now exploring her funny side. “I didn’t know what I wanted when I first started out in this business. But I’ve made a conscious decision to do more comedies. I really like that levity. I want to be around funny people and have those on-set experiences,” Fox says.
Speaking about this change and how the audience will receive it, the actress confesses that, “I’ve never been afraid to do anything. Maybe it’s delusional but I have this profound sense of purpose that I am supposed to do this and it’s going to work out.”
Megan explains that when pushed a little further, everything stands in trusting her intuition. “I’ve done projects in the past that didn’t feel right while they were happening. It was nothing I could put my finger on, but it just didn’t seem like where I was supposed to be. But these three movies felt right. I think it’s important to follow those instincts and to just go with it. It’s less scary when you have that strong gut feeling,” she told the magazine.
On her love life and meeting her husband, actor Brian Austin Green, Megan told Cosmopolitan that, “I didn’t know who he was, since I was too young for ‘Beverly Hills 90210’. But the first time I saw him, I got butterflies. And the first time he casually touched me? There was so much electricity.”
Fox was 18 when she met Green and he is 13 years older. The actress admits that it wasn’t easy at all but she is absolutely sure that they were destined to be together. “We’ve had obstacles, and we’ve overcome them. I truly feel like he’s my soul mate. I don’t want to sound corny or cliché, but I do believe we are destined to live this part of our lives together,” she says.
Megan and Brian got married in a private ceremony in Hawaii having just one guest, Brian’s son, Kassius, from his previous relationship. “I was always that girl who’d watch ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ and be like ‘Why the f*** are they crying?’ But now that I’m married? I turn that show on and cry hysterically with them,” Fox confesses.
Megan told the magazine that when it comes to going out they prefer quiet places. “Sometimes, we’ll drive to Malibu. It’s pretty long trek from where we live, so it feels like we are doing something special. It’s easy to just want to stay in because it’s comfortable. But I think couples need to mix it up. When we go out to dinner, I find that I flirt with him in ways that I totally don’t do in the comfort of our home,” the actress says. On having kids, Megan admits that she definitely wants at least two. “I want at least two, probably three. I’ve always been maternal. That’s another thing that people probably don’t assume about me.”
