Megan Fox Finds Being a Working Mom ‘Consuming’

Megan Fox may love her children like crazy, but she finds being a working mom truly is hard work.

Fox and husband Brian Austin Green have three children between them — their 1-and-a-half year-old Noah and 5-month-old Bohdi, and Brian’s 12-year-old daughter, Kassius, from another relationship.

“It’s so hard to be a working mom especially when your heart is not in your work, when your heart is with your family,” said Fox recently.

Fox is starring in the summer action flick, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is due to be released August 8. This is her first film since 2012, and the young mom finds getting back into the swing of things is exhausting and creates a crazy, hectic life.

“It’s total chaos, obviously. 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,'” she said. “Every moment of the day is dedicated to this one baby and then all of a sudden you have two babies! Their needs are so different because Noah is nearing 2 and then my newborn is 4 months. 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 says she doesn’t work for the limelight, but to support her family, especially since the couple recently purchased a $3.5 million home that once belonged to crooner Bing Crosby in Toluca Lake, California.

“I have to make one movie a year because I have to invest in their future and be able to provide for them,” she said. “I’m looking for movies that will shoot in Los Angeles, for projects where 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.”

    So, take a break woman! I’m sure your spoiled butt has tons of money in the bank. You won’t get back that precious time with your family. Such a bonehead.

  • Bicycle Girl

    Maybe if you didn’t purchase a 3.5 million dollar home, you wouldn’t need to be making stupid movies like “Transformers” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” to ‘make ends meet’.
    What should REAL working mothers without millions of dollars at their disposal be saying?

  • Nicole

    It is really hard to feel bad for grossly over paid celebs!

  • TheDude

    I don’t understand the negative comments. I don’t see where Megan is asking others to feel sorry for her. To me it reads that she enjoys her work and her kids which makes her work-home balance difficult. And sounds like she had an “aha moment”, whereas previously didn’t understand the hardships all working mothers endure.

      20 days a year? Come on! This drips with absurdity.

    I like how ‘celebrities’, after having a baby, act like ‘they’ have found out, like no one else in the history of having kids discovered it, that it is hard work watching kids.

  • SANM

    Working mom ha ha ha ha ha..only needs to work once a year she truly does not understand what its like to being working mom. Give me a break!!!

  • Tim Smith

    She should have done porn.

  • Fantasy Maker

    Just another out of touch, superficial, self absorbed Hollyweird actress. Like playing make believe and dressing in costume is work? GTFOH
    You “work” maybe 30 days a YEAR and it is your choice, you do not have to work like 99%of the other mothers out there. I will also surmise you have a full time nanny and or housekeeper. STFU you stupid b. otch

  • cohenfive

    Oddly, she actually sounds like she has her priorities sort of in line…

    • Scott_McMan

      If priorities means being concerned about your children’s future and then buying a $3.5 million dollar house, then yes, I guess you’re right.

    If you are able to buy a $3.5 Million dollar house, you are probably a “working mom” who has a large staff that includes a housekeeper, a cook, a nanny, a chauffeur, a business manager, an accountant, a gardener, etc…versus a typical “working mom” that has to DO all of those jobs alone.

    “Work to support my family”

    With all the hassle she complains about and only working to support her children, why does she need a $3.5 million dollar house? Most parents work to support their families, so I don’t see where this is something new. The difference is, smart parents live within their means. Who’s to say there’s going to be a movie role every year?

    So, let me get this straight, she wants to only do projects that are in LA, are no more than 20 days of her time and only once a year? And she’s talking like her life is in turmoil from juggling everything? This is hilarious! Next thing she’s going to say is that she has to cook once a week on the nanny’s day off.

    Another celebrity living in a fantasyworld. Imagine if you could work 20 days a year and then complain like you actually worked every day…….LOL!

    Blue eyes, brunette and hot, can’t handle it. Can’t act, looks good. Between Brian and Megan’s incomes, can’t afford the sitter? Unbelievable. Get Optimus Prime or Bumblebee to babysit.

    why make a movie she could make millions webcaming breast feeding her kid

  • JCJ Bike

    Those are really bad implants… Then, when you see what she did to her face, you have to wonder if she went to Wal Mart for her plastic surgery.

  • nick bruggeman

    I don’t understand the negativity. I took away that she wants to be at home with her kids but she also wants to work for the future of her kids. Then some of you are complaining how maybe we works a month out of the year and buys a 3.5 million dollar home with her husband. We have become a society that hates on the success of others. Any of us would take the same set up. Work 30 days a year and still have a home that size. I applaud her for wanting to be with her kids and how even a month or so away from her kids is painful to her. There are plenty of normal parents who see their kids every day who dont want anything to do with them. There is a Kardashian, who gets married then go to Ireland and Mexico for extended honeymoon and doesnt see her child at all but find time to post everything online for attention. Give me Fox any day. So much hatred for what she has, just because she doesnt have the normal lifestyle. I don’t get it.

    Consuming being a mom translates: no job offers, after getting fired from Transfomers by Michael Bay. Hey, as long as you can live of Brian’s risidual from 90210 who cares.

  • brody

    to bad she cant “buy” herself some talent cause her acting is atrocious and sorry but I didn’t know showing up on a set getting pretty was considered work, she seems very delusional and whiny.

      I hope the baby is sucking its own thumb and not Megan’s
