When Megan Fox was 2, she told her mom she was going to be an actress. Not that she wanted to be an actress, but that she was going to be one.
“Sometimes I just know things,” she explains. “I accidentally tap into stuff sometimes. I used to do it as a kid, and I do it as an adult. I crossed over and saw a future string.”

As a girl growing up in Tennessee, Fox was raised a Pentecostal Christian, speaking in tongues and falling down on the floor. She’s no longer a member of the church, but her upbringing opened her eyes to the spiritual world.
Fox is here in an otherwise barren conference room to talk about her new film “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” which opened on Friday. She’s had bronchitis for two weeks. (“I’ll shake your hand, but you’re just going to get sick,” she warns.) She’s pregnant, though you can barely tell with the flowy lace dress she has on. The actress, 30, is about to have her third child with former “90210” star Brian Austin Green, whom she married when she was 24. Their relationship is complicated: Fox filed for divorce last fall, but now that she’s pregnant with his child, the tabloids say they’re considering getting back together.
In “Ninja Turtles” Fox once again plays broadcaster April O’Neil. The movie is a sequel to 2014’s live-action reboot, which grossed nearly $500 million worldwide. And nine weeks after she gives birth to her third baby, she’ll return to Fox’s sitcom “New Girl,” on which her arc this season as Zooey Deschanel’s deadpan roommate earned her strong critical reviews.
