Megan Fox has spoken about her wish to move away from acting to help expose the planet’s “deep mysteries”.
The actor, who stars in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, believes that performing isn’t her “ultimate passion” and instead wants to explore other avenues.
“I have other skill sets and gifts that are much, much stronger that I am obligated to exercise and use,” she told the LA Times. “I’m really more intellectually minded. I’ve always been into alternative history, antiquities, archaeology. I’ve always been really consumed by these deep mysteries that exist on our planet that can’t be explained today by science. They eat away at me.”
One reason behind this passion is a tour she took of the Great Pyramid of Giza while filming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. “They may have been some type of energy plant at some point,” says Fox. “The sarcophagus in the Great Pyramid was put there by the government for tourism. And that sparked in me an interest in really exposing this sort of thing, because I realised I have access to things I shouldn’t have access to because of what I do for a living.”
She believes that the best way of doing this is a career in journalism and thinks that working for Vice would “be a dream”.
She also addressed the way she is pigeonholed because of her looks. “You know how women that are always cast in James Bond movies are pinups but their job in the movies is always being a marine biologist or neuroscientist?” she said. “I think people react to me that way. Like, ‘Right, she’s studying neurobiology.’ But I am really interested in that.”
But when offered the example of how her body is salaciously filmed in the new Turtles sequel, she believes that “resistance is futile, at this point” and she isn’t going to “keep fighting the image that exists”.
