LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Megan Fox may be known for being Hollywood’s hottest bombshell, but she’s got parenthood on the brain.
In a recent Q&A for Interview magazine, conducted by fellow big screen star “The Hangover’s” Zach Galifianakis, the actress revealed she’d like to expand her brood.
“I’d really like to have a family at some point,” Megan, who is dating former “90210” star Brian Austin Green, told Zach for Interview. “Not that I’m not focused on my career — of course I am. But I’m just at that place where I want to spend some time at home and on my family. And if a great project comes my way, then of course I’ll take it. But I’m not actively out seeking something specific.”
Megan, who has made headlines for plenty of things she has said while promoting her movies, told Zach that she believes a lot of her comments have been given a twist by the media.
“I’m one of those people who fiercely guards their privacy, so I hate doing interviews. Because just in terms of the experience I’ve had with the media so far, almost everything I say, no matter how innocent my intentions are, seems to get sort of manipulated and sensationalized and turned into some ridiculous news story,” she said.
The actress said she has been taken out of context so often, she fears speaking out.
“It just happens so much that I don’t want to open my mouth or speak anymore, because everything I say becomes scandalous,” she told the mag. “It wears you out. So I’m a bit jaded.”
The actress went on to admit that she does feel somewhat responsible for what’s gone on in the press.
“In the past I’ve been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality, so I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what’s really going on in my life,” she said. “So I have sort of aided the media in printing these misconceptions, which I regret. I’ve just come to the realization at this point that if I don’t feel like sharing, then I’m just not going to share. But I’m not going to go out of my way to mislead people or keep them at a distance, because that doesn’t really get me anywhere either.”
Megan will next be seen on the big screen in “Johan Hex,” which hits theaters on June 18.
