"I was really in love with them," Megan Fox told Entertainment Weekly when asked if she was a fan of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles before being cast as April O'Neil in the upcoming live-action reboot. "I have an older sister that’s 12 years older than me, so part of it initially was because I wanted to be like my big sister. But, it’s a really cool project for me because it was a huge part of my childhood, and it’s always been" As for her take on the character, the actress added: "She’s more of a leader when she explores her relationship with the turtles instead of just the human companion that gets dragged along on the adventure. It’s more representative of a modern woman." 

Many fans were of course surprised when it was revealed that Fox had joined the cast of a movie produced by Michael Bay, especially after their very public dispute following her appearances in the first two Transformers movies. However, it sounds as if they were both happy to bury the hatchet for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. "He was one of the most lovely people that I dealt with in making this movie. I’ve always loved Michael. We’ve had our battles in the past but even when I’ve been really outspoken about difficulties we’ve had, I’ve always followed up by saying that I have a particular affinity to him. He can be very vulnerable, and he’s very likeable and loveable. I’ve always been very vocal about that as well. But, sometimes we clash because we both have very willful, powerful personalities."

Now, the bad news. We already know that Fox's April has swapped her trademark yellow jumpsuit for a yellow leather jacket and skinny jeans, but those of you hoping to see her in a state of, ahen, "undress" will be sorely disappointed! "I’m completely clothed for the entire movie," revealed Fox. "There’s no gratuitous skin or sexual anything. Jonathan was really insistent on not wanting her to be sexualized or to take that sort of typical role we’ve seen women take in movies thus far, and that I’ve taken in particular." How do you guys feel about this news?

I'm still not sure why the hell she is in this movie...
staypuffed - 4/10/2014, 4:20 PM
I actually think she'll be a good April. The rest of the movie, not so sure.

"I’ve always loved Michael."

Kurne - 4/10/2014, 4:21 PM

batmanvsuperman - 4/10/2014, 4:22 PM

CaptainObvious - 4/10/2014, 4:24 PM
Well, at least Jonathan Liebesman respects women.

I've seen that animated gif before, but I just find it hillarious that it's IN THE ARTICLE. :D
SuperDude001 - 4/10/2014, 4:31 PM
Wow you people are doing a wonderful job for feminism! Keep up the good work! :D
RodimusPryme - 4/10/2014, 4:31 PM
So April is leading the Turtles? I thought that was Leo's job and they were completely autonomous from April O'Neil.

What does completely clothed even mean?
TheAstoundingMan - 4/10/2014, 4:40 PM
Oh well, I guess I can keep my sixteen dollars then.

She has no sex appeal - It would be like having sex with the grand canyon - you'd fall in.
SuperDude001 - 4/10/2014, 4:43 PM
Is it so bad that the director and her want to actually show she can improve her acting and so that maybe she won't be considered just a sex object for the rest of her career? Cause you know, people can learn and improve. Hopefully you guys can too.
JoeMomma29 - 4/10/2014, 4:43 PM
So we do not getting out of placed scenes like this to make little boys question why they are getting a funny feeling down below......

SpiderFraud - 4/10/2014, 4:45 PM
Change the Director, then I can get behind this movie.
GizmoEl - 4/10/2014, 4:47 PM
I hope shes great in the role and becomes a more credible actress instead of the crappy model looking girl who can't act stereotype shes been stuck in since Transformers.
AlexanderLykins - 4/10/2014, 4:47 PM
RetroFit - 4/10/2014, 4:48 PM
She's so beautiful that it makes the hair on my balls hurt.
Kyos - 4/10/2014, 4:50 PM
Woah, Joe posted a pic of the only good scene in the Transformers franchise - nice! :)
batz11 - 4/10/2014, 4:51 PM
[frick] she was hired for her acting chops?

Joe, love how she looked in that Transformer pic...wasn't just "little boys" tingling down there...
TheWolverine08 - 4/10/2014, 4:51 PM
We should be worrying about the quality of the movie anyway.
InfiniteMonkey - 4/10/2014, 4:53 PM
@RetroFit LMAO!

Megan is hot. Can't wait to see her turn in this.
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/10/2014, 4:58 PM
Great teaser pic
Gigacrusher45 - 4/10/2014, 4:59 PM
GOOD, April O'Neil ain't no damn slut mmmm hmmmm (snaps fingers with attitude)
AlexanderLykins - 4/10/2014, 4:59 PM
SuperCat - 4/10/2014, 5:05 PM
Guess we're supposed to be disappointed she's clothed.

AlexanderLykins - 4/10/2014, 5:08 PM
Don't worry. Michael Bay will find someone else to unclothe on set.
BritishMonkey - 4/10/2014, 5:10 PM
Good. I'd rather see a more desexualized Megan Fox. Shines better that way.
SuperCat - 4/10/2014, 5:11 PM
LOL @ AlexanderLykins

You're probably right!
SuperDude001 - 4/10/2014, 5:13 PM
I love how you guys want a good Turtles movie, bitch about how awful everything in this movie is, and then complain when one of the leads actors makes the point that she isn't going to be reduced down to just sex appeal and is actually taking interest in acting for her character.

There goes my ticket!
