[Movies] Megan Fox Says She's Completely Clothed Throughout Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.11.2014
Plus she talks about her love for the characters...
Megan Fox recently spoke with EW about her role as April O'Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and more. Check out the highlights:
On being a TNMT fan: "I was really in love with them. 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."
On April: "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. It's more representative of a modern woman."
On working with Michael Bay again: "He was one of the most lovely people that I dealt with in making this movie. 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 lovable. I've always been very vocal about that as well. But, sometimes we clash because we both have very willful, powerful personalities."
On if she'll be sexualized as April: "I'm completely clothed for the entire movie. 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."
