Megan Fox is waiting to have a baby until she makes more money


Megan Fox was just in Toronto to promote her supporting part in Friends With Kids, the film written and directed by Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm’s girlfriend/partner of a decade. The Hamm is in the movie too – so The Hamm and Megan Fox have officially made a movie together. The end is nigh! But I digress. Our agencies didn’t have any photos of The Hamm or Megan Fox in Toronto, unfortunately, so below I’ve just included older photos of Megan in yet another red dress, back when she was showing off her 2010 Face. Her June 2010 Face, to be more specific.

Anyway, the film was actually pretty well-received in Toronto – you can read one glowing review here, at Showbiz 411, where Westfeldt’s script is compared to something Woody Allen would have written, and words like “fresh” and “well-drawn characters” are thrown around. No specific praise for Megan, but I think Megan’s career reboot is probably pretty smart – she’s not going to carry a film for a while, so she’s trying to choose smaller parts in better scripts. Speaking of Megan 2.0: The Supporting Actress Years, Megan has given a new interview where she discusses babies and whether she’s saved enough money to take a few years off to have a little BAG-baby.

Former Transformers star Megan Fox has revealed she wants to have kids – when she’s got enough money saved in the bank. The 25-year-old star, whose career nosedived after she was sacked from the latest Transformers film, said she wants to be financially secure before becoming a mother.

She revealed her hopes for the future while promoting her latest film Friends with Kids, a comedy about couples whose lives are altered when they become parents.

She said: ‘I want to have children — I absolutely want biological children, I’ve always wanted kids, it’s just about the timing being right. I have a number in my mind of what amount of money I want in the bank so that I can protect that child’s future and really protect it so that kid never struggles. Once I feel safe with that, then I’ll have kids.’

Fox, who married actor Brian Green a year ago, is already step mum to his nine year old son Kassius from a previous relationship. The actress, once tipped as the hottest star in Hollywood, has suffered a series of career setbacks after Steven Spielberg personally ordered her to be sacked from Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

It followed an interview the actress gave about director Michael Bay when she described him as being like Hitler on the set. As executive producer Spielberg, who is Jewish and made the Holocaust epic ‘Schindler’s List’, told Bay to fire her from the $120m film and she was replaced by British model Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Fox’s other recent films Jennifer’s Body and Jonah Hex also bombed at the box office.

But speaking at the Toronto film festival in Canada Fox accepted that her career had not been all hits.

‘Careers sort of go up and down, not everybody makes a hit,’ she said.

Fox also confessed that if she had not made it as an actress she would have wanted to be an archaeologist.

She said she was fascinated by the subject and had taken several Egyptology classes and has even considered studying it full time after quitting acting.

‘I would want to be an archaeologist — and I want to still do that now… it holds the answers!’

I was actually thinking about Megan and money the other day, wondering if she had been smart with her investments and stocked away part of her Transformers paychecks. When you go and look through her filmography, you quickly realize that the only major paychecks Megan has had are probably from Transformers 1 and 2, and maybe Jennifer’s Body, although she probably took a pay cut for that film. Plus, her modeling contracts, I guess. Sure, in her heyday (2008-2010), she was probably making about $10 million a year, but Megan isn’t doing all of this on her own – she’s got a large team of people working for her, and they all have to get paid too. And then you’ve got to figure out how much all of that tweaking and surgery costs. Basically, she might not have much of a savings left. Poor Megan.

As for her desire to wait for a while to have a baby – well, she’s only 25! And she’s already a step-mom. I’ll give her a break.

    It feels wrong but the woman is definitely growing on me.

  2. Liz says:

    I actually have a lot of sympathy for her, as well. If she paid her taxes right, hired the right people etc., then $10m for one or two years wouldn’t get her that far. It’s hardly poverty level, but there is a reason there are so many bankrupt athletes, for instance.

    But does anyone else think that all the plastic surgery makes her look a little…freaky?

  3. smh says:

    Her face looks so horrible now, if I saw that thing standing by me at night time I would be traumatized. She ruined herself just like Hunter Tylo… Only difference is Megan was a girl-next door kind of beauty before all the plastic surgery she had. And she had the nerve to boast about not having botox at age 25! What about your face implants, lip fillers, cat eyes, heightened eyebrows (which caused the disturbing ripple movements on her forehead), and silicon boobs. The fact that she is an utter airhead and a bimbo is apparent because of the stupid shit she says in her interviews, and the dumb bimbo voice that she just can’t change no matter what her role is, and then she gets pissed that we don’t take her seriously. And the way she imitated Jolie with all her tattooes, poses, earlier controversy etc. and then denying it all was priceless. At least Jolie had acting talent, this girl doesn’t even have talent for modelling, she is too short and her legs look short in the Armani ad, and can only pose in an extremely slutty way (some modelling photos, not the Armani, but much of her posing looks just trashy). Anyway I didn’t mind her until she made that no botox fiasco and she has absolutely no talent to speak of, she needs to pack up and go home. And take Brian Austin Green with you he was only hot in Terminator: TSCC anyway lol

    That’s what a lot more people should do, instead of popping one out without any back-up plans and then expecting other people (parents, tax-payers) to finance them, while they are unemployed.

  5. keith133 says:

    this is a video of the interview the quotes come from i think she comes across very well and looks gorgeous

  6. Ms Smith says:

    Maybe she is growing up and has learnt afew life lessons. Going back to supporting roles and keeping out of trouble is a smart move. (Lindsey should take note, although its probably to late for her.)
    Its a shame that she has messed with her face though.

  7. Bite me says:

    Hmmm you now what good for Megan foer realizing that she’s not financial stable enough to bring a child into this world… Didn’t BAG have some tax and property issues last year… About the face her Toronto 2011 face is much better, poor girl u can’t buy self-esteem

  8. Kiki says:

    I feel the same way.

  9. Julia says:

    I always thought that lots of her problems : diahrrea of the mouth, insecurities about her physique, hence compulsive plastic surgeries, spoiled brat attitude comes from her imaturity.

    Maybe she is experiencing natural growing process.

    I for one always thought that Brian was the perfect man for her cause he is older and has been with her when she was a nobody. He is the stable element in her life that probably prevent her to become another Lindsay Lohan.

    I hope she keeps on growing up and maturing.

    Good luck to her !

  10. Courtney says:

    this girl isn’t very bright she wouldn’t be the one raising the kid anyway a couple of nannies would and shewouldn’t feel guilty. her highest paycheck before taxes management agent fees and everything else was Jennifer’s body 5,000,000 the same thing Paul Newman was payed upfront for Blaze 20 years earlier of course he also got profit participation as he had since the late 1960′s. she isn’t a big enough star to get that perk and not be laughed at

  11. The Truth Fairy says:

    The fillers have finally disappeared from her face and she looks normal again. I hope she learned her lesson and doesn’t have any more cosmetic procedures!

    All she needs now is a great movie roll and she’ll be back on top.

  12. Mare says:

    I still think she’s pretty and her husband is gorgeous.

  13. Sue says:

    Liz@ Why do you feel sorry for her she CAN’T act. That’s like saying you feel sorry for Kim Kardashian who can’t sing and can’t profit off of it and is not getting paid a crazy amount of money even thought she has the “right” people and pays her taxes.

    I can’t stand this no talent blow up doll.

  14. Jezi says:

    Why does she keep touching her face??? Every time it settles and is starting to look a bit normal again, she puffs it up again. STOP!!!

  15. whitedaisy says:

    The poor woman can’t act. The fact that she is cast in a movie in any role, however small, is beyond me and will keep me from spending money in the movie theatre to see it.

  16. keith133 says:

    @jezi those pictures are from last year her face looks much better now watch this video

  17. stella says:

    Doesn’t her husband work? Why isn’t he supporting her? He’s a lot older and should have his shit together enough to support a family.

  18. Jezi says:

    @keith133 Thank God!!! LOL.

  19. bluhare says:

    @stella: You don’t know whether she’s factoring in his income or not in her decision.

    Here’s what bugs me. Females with a boyfriend; tons of comments about how he needs to get a job if he doesn’t appear to have one. Males with girlfriend: No comments regarding a job if she doesn’t seem to have one.

  20. jover says:

    I agree 14 and whitedaisy; she can’t act and won’t take lessons too vain; if she could act, had a smidgen of a real personality and intellect (saying dumb contrived controversial things to get some pub is not an example), maybe she would make more money. Does she have any other look other than that vacant, brainless I’m only kinda here, but not really look. No reason to have any sympathy for her – go back to the trailer park bimbo.

  21. Turtle Dove says:

    Keith – thanks for the video.

    How cute is Hamm’s wife?! Her cheeks are adorable. They look good together.

    I’m glad that the film is getting positive reviews. Megan is making wise choices by rebuilding her career this way with smaller roles.

  22. DethHammer says:

    You know, there’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with having plastic surgery and procedures done. Thank goodness for it, really; it can really help a person’s self-image for the right reasons. But when public figures not only lie but to lambaste plastic surgery when they themselves have had it, is just so hypocritical and mendacious.

  23. Stacia says:

    @ Jezi…your so right

    She jacked her face up. At 25 you dont need ANY work done. So sad that these people are not satisfied with their physical features and quirks that make them who they are. Instead they inject and dissect themselves in the pursuit of “beauty”.

  24. smh says:

    I can’t believe this dumbo gets all the sympathy while everybody is ripping Jessica Alba a new one: J.A. who is a natural and astonishing beauty and an environmentalist. And who is already a loving and doting mother. Meanwhile, Megan Fox cannot keep her mouth shut; not only verbally, but also physically because of all the procedures she had done.

  25. Heatherrr says:

    She’s still my girl crush.

  26. Kosmos says:

    To #9, Julia – I totally agree with what you’ve said. However, I feel that Megan basically has little acting talent. Real super hot talent could save her career, but being just a borderline actress is going to be tough. That is why she is relying so much on showing skin, pushing that to make up for real talent, but she’s not the first to want a big movie career. Unfortunately, looks alone do not always take you where you want to go. When she put her foot in her mouth more than once, that just worked against her.
