Megan Fox recently admitted that her very first crush was on one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles–Michaelangelo to be exact. The actress who stars alongside Will Arnett, Johnny Knoxville, and Whoopi Goldberg in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, says she knows her crush was silly, but she was just a little girl.
“My first crush, and everyone thinks this is really weird, but little girls have crushes on animated characters, and my first crush was Michaelangelo,” Megan said during an interview with MTV. “So I’m super excited.”
“They were my favorite movies as a kid. That was my thing. Way, way more so than Star Wars or in later years, still more than Lord of the Rings. It was always Ninja Turtles,” she added.
Even though this is a highly updated version of the original TV series, the film stays true to the original in lots of ways.
“There is time in the sewers. There is time in the lair. There’s all of it,” Will Arnett says of the movie’s sets. “I think we’ve done a really good job in staying true to the mythology and then telling a new story, telling a new version.”
This is Megan Fox’s first appearance on the big screen since giving birth to her and hubby Brian Austin Green’s second son Bodhi back in February. The couple has another son named Noah.
