Megan Fox covers the August issue of Cosmo to promote Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. For real. She’s in a “tips to please your man in bed” magazine as part of the publicity for a kids’ movie. Cosmo is a regular tour stop for Megan though. I think this is her fifth US cover, and she’s had a handful of international covers too. Back in 2009, Megan used Cosmo to talk about the all powerful vadge. By 2012, she was really into discussions of soulmates. Megan has changed even more since then and has appared in Parents magazine. So far, these new Cosmo excerpts reflect her new outlook. That is, being sexy isn’t everything:
On women being in charge of their sexuality:
“Women don’t have to be desperate and try so hard. Allow yourself to be strong and powerful and men will be crawling on their hands and knees.”
On finding the perfect mate: “You have to be with someone who loves you at your absolute worst, because you can’t be an actress every moment of the day forever.”
On someone she finds sexy: “I think Ellen [DeGeneres] is sexy. Maybe it’s the way she gives off the impression that she’s anti-’the business’ even though she’s engaging in it. And humor is always sexy.”
On reading Cosmo: “I remember I used to think it was a big deal, when I was like 15, 16, and I knew that Cosmo was something my mom probably didn’t want me to read, and so it was exciting to get a hold of it because you felt like you were getting a glimpse behind what it was to be a woman; they’re letting you in on womanly secrets.”
The interview isn’t anything special, but we usually don’t see mind-blowing revelations in Cosmo. The whole “don’t try so hard” is kind of funny because Megan used to try so hard to sound like a sexy rebel in her interviews. Remember all those Maxim shoots where she shot water out of her mouth and pushed her girls together? Yeah. I’m glad she’s not trying so hard anymore. She looks much better in a shoot like this. I’m not crazy about the cover outfit at all, but Megan looks lovely in the rest of the editorial.
