This is 40 actress Megan Fox reveals her surprising spirituality and her fears of stardom with Esquire magazine, explaining that she began speaking in tongues at the young age of 8.
During the interview, Fox explains her inability to trust since shooting into stardom. Esquire writer Stephen Marchie notes that when Fox read about the New York nanny who murdered two children it prompted her to fire her own who was there to help her tend to the night feedings for her three month old son, Noah.
On the cover of Esquire, Fox dons a bra and underwear showing off her always sexy figure. She explains that her previous roles in such films as Transformers did nothing for her personality as it only portrayed her as a sex-symbol. “I felt powerless in that image," she explains. "I didn't feel powerful. It ate every other part of my personality, not for me but for how people saw me, because there was nothing else to see or know. That devalued me. Because I wasn't anything. I was an image. I was a picture. I was a pose."
Touching base on spirituality, Fox notes she has read the entire book of Revelations, noting her own spiritual beliefs. According to Us Weekly, Fox attended the Pentecostal Church in Tennessee where she explains she began speaking in tongues at the age of eight.
She states, “The energy is so intense in the room that you feel like anything can happen. They're going to hate that I compare it to this, but have you ever watched footage of a Santeria gathering or someone doing voodoo? You know how palpable the energy is? Whatever's going on there, it's for real."
She adds, "I've seen people be healed. Even now, in the church I go to, during Praise and Worship I could feel that I was maybe getting ready to speak in tongues, and I'd have to shut it off because I don't know what that church would do if I started screaming out in tongues in the back."
Fox discusses her believe in aliens, the loch ness monster and more in the February issue of Esquire.
