In a new interview with “Parents”, Megan Fox opened up about being a parent to her young sons and her career options. According to the interview, Megan only wants to make one film per year in order to be able to spend more time with her children Noah and Bodhi.
She said, “Before you have kids, you really do not understand how much work it is and how consuming it is. And then you have one and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, my baby is my whole world.’ Every moment of the day is dedicated to this one baby, and then all of a sudden you have two babies!”
She revealed to the publication, “I’ve never been an extraordinarily ambitious girl or career-oriented, but especially once I got pregnant with my first son and now my second, it’s so hard to be a working mom especially when your heart is not your work, when your heart is with your family.”
She continued, “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. It’s all about trying to spend as little time away from my kids as possible. I’m looking for movies that will shoot in Los Angeles, for projects where I’m part of an ensemble so I can shoot in and out in 10-20 days. It’s all about trying to spend as little time away from my kids as possible.”
With regard to splitting her time between her sons, she said, “I have to figure out how to incorporate Noah into the process and have him help me take care of Bodhi and make sure he doesn’t get jealous and make sure nobody’s neglected and everybody’s needs are being met.”
She went on to say, “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. Do they each understand how special they are and how much I love them? 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.”
She added, “I had no idea how worried I was going to be for the rest of my life. From the moment I gave birth to Noah, that was the first time I was like, ‘I love something so much that I will never be the same again.’ I will never be relaxed again, because I will always be worried about him and hoping that he is okay and safe and happy.”
Her movie “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is set to be released in theaters on August 8, 2014. Will you be heading to the theater to see it?
