Default Megan Fox talks about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Entertainment Weekly has just posted a new Interview with Megan Fox talking about the new TMNT movie.
http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/04/1...r-moon-remake/

Quote:
Megan Fox has long claimed to be a self-described “nerd” but has unexpectedly upped the ante when it comes to her fan-girl obsession with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

“I was really in love with them,” confesses Fox, who stars as reporter April O’Neil in the live-action reboot of the ‘80s cartoon which hits theaters August 8. “I have an older sister that’s 12 years older than me, so part of it initially was because I wanted to be like my big sister. But, it’s a really cool project for me because it was a huge part of my childhood, and it’s always been.”

Her die-hard love of the characters – she even made husband Brian Austin Green watch the cheesy Turtle movies with her when they were dating – eliminated any hesitation about her decision to sign up for the film executive produced by Michael Bay.

“He was one of the most lovely people that I dealt with in making this movie,” says Fox of the Transformers director, with whom she had once publicly feuded. “I’ve always loved Michael. We’ve had our battles in the past but even when I’ve been really outspoken about difficulties we’ve had, I’ve always followed up by saying that I have a particular affinity to him. He can be very vulnerable, and he’s very likeable and loveable. I’ve always been very vocal about that as well. But, sometimes we clash because we both have very willful, powerful personalities.”

Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman had an edgy vision for the film that included a dramatic makeover for the four mutant turtles, now animated in CG. There are also plenty of dramatic action sequences and a few surprising contemporary details such as a complete makeover of Fox’s character, April. All of which, for the record, suit Fox just fine.

“She’s more of a leader when she explores her relationship with the turtles instead of just the human companion that gets dragged along on the adventure,” says Fox of her revamped character. “It’s more representative of a modern woman.”

Fox’s April also swaps her trademark yellow jumpsuit for a yellow leather jacket and skinny jeans. “I’m completely clothed for the entire movie,” says Fox, noting that may disappoint some fans. “There’s no gratuitous skin or sexual anything. Jonathan was really insistent on not wanting her to be sexualized or to take that sort of typical role we’ve seen women take in movies thus far, and that I’ve taken in particular.”

But don’t expect Fox to trade hot pants for head-to-toe gear from here on out. “I don’t really mind,” says Fox of her trademark pin-up appeal. “It’s actually a large part of my personality. I think you can be that and you can also be intelligent and strong. I don’t think they’re in opposition to one another – at least in my life.”

And that life now includes her two sons with Green, 15-month-old Noah and new arrival Bodhi Ransom. Being a mother, says Fox, definitely influences the types of film she takes on.

“I had just had Noah when I started taking meetings to see if this would work out for me,” explains Fox. “How cool is it to have a mom that plays either a superhero or plays the part of this iconic franchise that spans so many generations? I mean, hopefully they’ll both think I’m cool.”

With cartoon reboots Transformers and Turtles behind her, Fox says she’s looking forward to future projects. A third cartoon remake of her choice?

“Gundam Wing,” responds Fox, adding she’d love to see a Jurassic Park remake in the works. “Pacific Rim was sort of a Gundam Wing situation, but they should do it. What about Thundercats?”

Or maybe, she says, Sailor Moon.“That could feasibly be made into a live action movie,” mulls Fox. “I don’t know how many Americans were into that. I was into that, but I don’t know how huge it was here.”

“That’s not actually a bad idea.”

So much for her wearing mini-skirts and tank tops like Judith Hoag.

She may have wore those, but they didn't really call attention to it.

Like her respect for a lot of those properties, and unlike some she seems to know of certain big things not being as known in the USA.

No yellow jumpsuit = no deal

j/k

But it looks like Fox learned to be more diplomatic and not step on any toes this interview.

I'm no Michael Bay fan but it would be cruddy if she dissed him after he gave her a second chance.

The stuff she says about Michael Bay doesn't seem all that constructed, seems like she usually says both good and bad stuff about him, which is quite common in human beings, difference is that she said the stuff she shouldn't last time.

I can agree with Mrs. Fox on a "Thundercats" movie but a "Jurassic Park" remake....

I guess she wasn't aware of that they are currently working on a 4th Jurassic Park movie.

Yeah, right! So, now all of them parents who *****ed and moaned like crazy to get all of the sex, drugs, smoking and violence out of the kiddie films, they must be so proud. Kids aren't hanging out at the malls and arcades no more today, they are actually going to rehab, getting pregnant and are now shooting up schools. Yep, the parents back then did so much good things.

The thing that I get a kick out of in that scene,is that she actively makes the decision to go in the back,take off her skirt and stockings and put on a pair of shorts before hosting their little pizza party.

If she was a man, she would probably have not been kicked from TF in the first place, or in least her career wouldn't be so f***d up for that interview, Shia needed a ton of controversies in order to finally kill his career.

Yeah, she got over the fact that they're mutant turtles and teenage males real fast.

It's almost saddening to me that Shia's career is tanking so badly. I was looking forward to him growing into the next Nicholas Cage.
