Megan Fox: Acting “Isn’t My Job Anymore”
Say goodbye to Megan Fox, the actress, and hello to Megan Fox, the mom. In a new interview with Marie Claire UK, Fox — who welcomed son Noah with husband Brian Austin Green in September — says acting “isn’t my job anymore.”
“My job is to be with him,” she tells the magazine, adding, “All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it.” Now Fox wants “to give Noah as much of myself as I can,” noting, “I’ve never been validated by work or fame or Hollywood or any of that.”
And motherhood has affected more than just the movie star’s work schedule. “I can’t watch the news anymore. Everything makes me cry,” reveals Fox. “Because everyone is someone’s child, every woman seems like someone’s mother. I have so much more patience for people and women in general.”
As for life with Green, whom she first began dating at 18 years old, Fox doesn’t seem to regret committing at such a young age, telling the mag, “Maybe it’s just because I don’t know any different.” “I believe he’s my soulmate,” she says, adding, “But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t take work, because we are very, very different.”
