Megan Fox Danced When She Got The Role!

Damnit Maurie, from the Roz & Mocha Show, travelled to Hollywood to interview Megan Fox and Will Arnett who star in Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which hits theatres this weekend!

Megan Fox grew up a fan of the Turtles and landing the iconic role of April O’Neil was a dream come true for the actress, “I literally danced when I got the part, when I found out, because I was waiting for 2 weeks. They wouldn’t answer me, wouldn’t let me know if I had booked it or not. Then I got word and I danced in my living room.”

Also, she thinks that even the most hardcore super fans of the Turtles will come out of the theatre enjoying the movie. “I feel like there’s a whole group of people that grew up with them, like I did, and they want to be hard on it, and it’s going to be impossible for them to walk away from this movie and hate it.”

Will Arnett has quickly become the worlds best Dad, as it’s all his sons have been able to talk about since he began work on the project. “We shot this movie in New York last summer, and I’d be on set all day, and my kids would actually come to the set quite a bit, but because the turtles are CG they couldn’t actually see them, but they’d watch the guys do the stunts and all this cool stuff.” He continued, “then I’d come home after we wrapped, and I’d walk in and my boys would be dressed up as the Turtles, and they’d say ‘Dad you have to play Shredder.”

“My life has been all things Turtles for a couple years now, which is great, because it’s a story and characters that I’m really comfortable with my sons being into, because there is such a great message.”

Megan Fox Believes In Aliens And Can’t Understand Why You Don’t

Megan Fox is a believer. “I believe in everything,” she told MTV in an interview about her new movie “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” What does “everything” include? Aliens. Big Foot a.k.a. “a large bipedal primate.” And ghosts, which Fox not only believes in, but has experienced first-hand.

It all went down in Mexico City. Fox was just in her hotel room with her kid and nanny, when something visited her… and poured her phantom coffee.

Yes, phantom coffee. Just watch the video.

“I can’t explain to you why they were making those sounds,” Fox said after telling her side of the story, but we remain skeptical. What do you think?

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” opens in theaters on Friday, August 9.

Megan Fox Talks ‘TMNT’ Sequels; Wants James Cameron’s Help To Make ‘Fathom’

The best thing about sitting down for an interview with Megan Fox is that you can expect the unexpected. While many an actor’s approach to the movie promotion press circuit is to stay “on message” and recycle the same stories and answers over and over again, Fox candidly speaks her mind and is smart and funny about it.

In the revamped Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fox plays aspiring intrepid news reporter April O’Neil, on the hunt for an actual story to investigate instead of covering fluffy topics like fitness trends. O’Neil finds her story in the Turtles of course which, ultimately, doesn’t matter career-wise because she can’t tell anyone about them… until the sequel?

Speaking of which, when Screen Rant sat down with Fox recently we discussed how many Turtles movies she’s signed on for, as well as how O’Neil’s special brand of journalism differs from that of typical movie reporters, why Michaelangelo would be the most fun to date, and when/if we’re ever going to see her cinematic take on Fathom. Hint: Yes, but it might require the involvement of James Cameron? Read on to find out why.

The stereotype I hate in movies is when all the journalists sleep with their sources…

Oh interesting. Well, that would be difficult in this situation, we’d have like a weird inter-species thing happening, I don’t know if people are ready.

I did ask Will Arnett if his character Vern or Michelangelo would be more fun on a date…

Definitely Michelangelo without a doubt, it’s not even a question.

Why because his sense of humor?

He’s funny, he doesn’t take himself too seriously. Vern’s too trying-to-be-a-cool-guy, disingenuous, wants to take her to a fancy restaurant. That’s not what Mikey would do, Mikey would put me on his back, we’d go skateboarding, sit under the bridge, eat some pizza, listen to music.

Of course Will said Vern would be the better date.

Of course. And he’s wrong.

Did you get to do any riding on the back of turtles?

[Laughs] You mean in real life?

Not in real life, while you were filming with the stunt sequences and such.

Well you mean the actual actors who were playing the turtles? There’s that scene where Mikey is holding me, that’s the closest thing I got to riding on a turtle’s back. Then there are a few times where Raph had to throw me over his shoulder and carried me around, I don’t know if that made it into the movie I can’t remember, same with Leo he had to hold me and run me through a room with gunfire, I also don’t know if that made the movie but we did it a few times.

Megan Fox Interviews with USA Today!

NEW YORK — With those lush lips and moody eyes, Megan Fox is every bit as impossibly, sensually hot in person as you would expect.

Just, please, please, don’t call her a bombshell in front of her kids. Fox, who plays intrepid reporter April O’Neil in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesreboot opening Friday, cringes visibly when she thinks about her two toddlers, Noah, almost 2, and Bodhi, 5 months, one day being confronted with images of their mother all sexed up.

“I wanted to be a superhero for my children. They can’t really see Transformers, because it’s too sexualized for them to deal with their mother. That’s their mother bent over the car. We don’t need to go there — maybe ever,” says Fox, 28, referring to her breakout performance in Michael Bay’s 2007 cinematic explosion.

In TMNT, though, she’s much more wholesome as a news junkie who figures out that a quartet of reptiles in humanoid form are defending New York City from the evil Foot Clan. She campaigned for the role as a die-hard fan of the Turtles.

Fox got the part. And then nature took its course.

“I got pregnant 10 days into shooting. Total surprise,” she says. “I had months left to film this movie. I was exhausted. I was nauseous. I was doing lots of running and I get thrown around. All the tough stuff was left to the other characters.”

Whoever moans about carefully choreographed celebrity interviews has never met Fox, who’s delightfully candid. She’ll tell you that she doesn’t drink anything except for sake, but loves going to bars and verbally sparring with guys. To avoid the paparazzi, she and husband Brian Austin Green mostly keep their boys at home — “but they do get out,” she laughs. She’s “terrified” of Googling herself. And she doesn’t mind that people underestimate her intelligence, either.

“It’s hard to upset me,” says Fox. “In terms of being intelligent, I think that’s a stigma that comes with being an actress. Some of the responsibility I carry on my own back, for the types of movies that I do. For agreeing to pose for GQ with cherries in my mouth. I’m hoping that getting older will work in my favor. It’s easier for me to take responsibility for it than to blame outside forces.” [Read more…]
