Formulated-in-a-lab-by-12-year-old-boys actress Megan Fox has been forbidden from getting her junk and stuff out in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, presumably because a glimpse of her junk and stuff would detract from the scarier-than-visions-of-hell-itself CGI turtles starring alongside her.
The 27-year-old actress, who will play reporter April O’Neil in the remake, told Entertainment Weekly that director Jonathan Leibesman’s vision for the character meant there was no need for her to ‘flaunt’ her ‘assets’ or get her ‘stuff’ ‘out’ because: “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.” Yes, that is Megan Fox talking very seriously about a fictional person who talks to turtles. Yes. Correct.

She added: “I’m completely clothed for the entire movie. 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.” So that’s nice.
But not new – back in 2012, Megan said she would be keeping her clothes on in movies for a while to avoid embarrassment for her newborn at the time but now 15-month-old son, Noah. “It changes your perspective about being overly sexual in a film when you have a baby,” she said. “I’m going to be more cautious about choosing films because I’m already thinking about when he’s in school and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he’s going to be horrified. So that will deter me from making some of the choices I made before.”
