Bisexual beauty Megan Fox is about to hit the big screen once this summer in the long anticipated reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Fox steps into the famous yellow jumpsuit (well, a stylish updated yellow leather jacket at least) as April O’Neil, the intrepid reporter and ally to the mysterious pizza loving, crime fighting reptiles.
In anticipation of the film’s August 8th release, we’re highlighting some of Megan Fox’s most outrageous and awesome moments on camera and off.
Megan discusses her former lady love in GQ
In 2008, GQ did a cover issue with Megan Fox, where the notoriously candid actress discussed falling in love with a stripper when she was 18. The relationship burned hot and fast, but Megan’s ease in discussing her past and openness to relationships with men and women, was refreshing at a time when sexuality was still being played close to the vest.
She’d kill a beast for Olivia Wilde
In the same GQ article, Megan is quoted about her then crush on actress Olivia Wilde.
“Olivia Wilde is so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands.” In kind, Wilde responded in the best way possible in her own GQ article. “Of course, anything I can do to save the mountain ox, I’m happy to do.”
It’s safe to say that Olivia Wilde is completely crush worthy.
“That scene” in Jennifer’s Body
Fox starred in the Diablo Cody-penned horror/comedy, Jennifer’s Body, as a high school student turned succubus by the evil doings of a low-rent indie rock band. Jennifer already has a complicated relationship with her best friend Needy (Amanda Seyfried) and after Jennifer’s possession, the two share a heated make out scene. It doesn’t exactly work out for these two, and Jennifer’s Body was not a success at the box office, but we’ll always have that scene to remember it by.
Fox famously posed with a mannequin of herself for an Interview Magazine shoot. Sure, it was kind of wacky, and perhaps a little weird, but Megan Fox is the kind of person that can make that work. She even kept the head as a souvenir after the shoot was finished.
Crushing on Ellen
Move over Olivia, because it looks like Megan Fox has a new crush. In this August’s issue of Cosmopolitan, Fox reveals who she thinks is sexy now.
“I think Ellen [DeGeneres] is sexy. Maybe it’s the way she gives off the impression that she’s anti-’the business’ even though she’s engaging in it. And humor is always sexy.”
And she’s a great dancer, don’t forget that, Megan.
Big foot better watch out!
When in ComicCon, do as the ComicConians do! While promoting TMNT at SDCC, Megan Fox told People Magazine that she thinks she could be a pretty epic monster hunter.
“Bigfoot’s real and I have confidence in myself that if I were ever to be taken out on an expedition … I would be the one to find Bigfoot.”

The new April O’Neil
Reporter April O’Neil is the one to discover the secret of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and soon becomes their friend and ally in the fight against the evil (and the now much scarier) Shredder. Megan Fox will be bringing it as the ambitious investigative reporter April O’Neil, as you can see in the action packed trailer below. So grab a slice, sit back and enjoy the ride.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens on August 8th.
