Megan Fox starred in two Transformers films and this September fans will see the new mom reunite with director Michael Bay for Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles.
All of Fox’s collaborations with Bay have been heavily influenced by technology and made possible by whiz-bang visual effects. However, Fox’s propensity to star in these types of green-screen driven blockbuster films doesn’t mean that her life revolves around technology.
Outside of acting, Fox’s lifestyle is much slower, more organic and quite unplugged. Megan isn’t a technophobe; instead she’s just looking to set a good example for her kids, 21-month-old Noah Shannon and 4-month-old Bodhi Ransom.
During a sit-down with Parents magazine Fox dished on her against-the-grain, modern style of parenting.
“As a mom it’s hard because I don’t feel like I’m ever giving either one of them 100 percent of my attention or 100 percent of myself, so I carry a lot of guilt,” the mom of two explained.
Megan Fox doesn’t want to take away bonding time with her two sons by erecting an artificial barrier between them. But Megan also doesn’t want people to mistake that guilt as an admission of bad parenting.
Megan went on to tell Parents magazine and its readers that her children are very much loved.
“Do they each understand how special they are and how much I love them? And are they understanding that they’re unique? It’s hard to make each one feel like an individual when you have to raise them together and manage them together all of the time.”
As a highly in demand A-list actress it may seem hard to fathom how Megan Fox juggles her responsibilities in the red carpet and the playroom, but someone she works through it all.
Fox’s husband, Brian Austin Green, is also a busy actor. He currently co-stars on the hit Charlie Sheen led sitcom Anger Management. Megan and Brian must share the same struggle to get in quality time with Noah and Bodhi.
“It’s total chaos, obviously. Before you have kids you really do not understand how much work it is and how consuming it is,” Fox remarked. “It’s really hard to manage because I also don’t let them watch TV. It’s not like I’m going to sit Noah in front of the television so I can take care of Bodhi.”
Fox’s household rules include, “no computers, no cell phones until at least 8th grade.” Youngster friendly flicks are fair game though since Megan believes that “Movies are so nostalgic and they can remind us of these amazing times in our childhood.”
Fox is happy and healthy. She’s also living in the present and is antsy to see what the future holds for her two beautiful children.
“I’m excited for the future, to see them be brothers and be best friends and I know that there’s gonna be lots of fighting, but there’s also gonna be lots of hugs and kisses,” Fox recalled.
Downsizing her workload was priority number one. This career change meant that Megan Fox wouldn’t let her work commitments prevent her from spending time with her kids.
“I have to make one movie a year because I have to invest in their future and I have to be able to pay their way through college and be able to provide for them,” she says. “It’s all about trying to spend as little time away from my kids as possible.”
Megan Fox certainly seems to be glowing, both on and off the screen.
