Megan Fox rose to fame playing the midriff-baring “hot girl”, with her appearance in Transformers skyrocketing her to stardom. But in a recent interview promoting her upcoming film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, she revealed that she’s more than just a pretty face, letting us in on a little-known fact about her childhood.
“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. My first crush, and everyone thinks this is really weird, but little girls have crushes on animated characters, and my first crush was Michaelangelo. So I’m super excited,” she said.
Fox even sang the original theme song to the show and did Vanilla Ice’s “Ninja Rap” from the second film.
Actor Will Arnett, one of Fox’s co-stars in the upcoming movie, says he’s happy with the way the story is done, balancing a lot of action and new sequences while staying true to the original ideas.
“There is time in the sewers. There is time in the lair. There’s all of it. 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,” he said.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters August 8.
