Megan Fox is ready for some more Transformers.
"If [Bay] ever wanted me to do a cameo like assembling an autobot motorcycle in a bike shop or something like that, I would totally do it," Fox told me this weekend while promoting her new flick, the Bay-produced reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (in theaters on Aug. 8).
When Fox signed on for TMNT, it was headline-making news because of the Bay connection. "I knew it would blow people's minds," Fox said. "But we had been talking behind the scenes. No one knew. Mike and I have a special relationship. I love Mike and I've always loved Mike. He was really instrumental in casting me in [Ninja Turtles] actually. I owe this movie to him."
And if all goes well, the new TMNT will be the start of a box-office-banging franchise. Fox joked that she's obligated to do about a dozen TMNT movies.
"Right now, there's no sequel set," Fox said, adding, "But I imagine there will be because it's good."
She added, "Even though a lot of people frown upon these kind of movies—they're like, 'It's not serious acting'—I don't f--king care. I love it. I have fun and that's what life is about. You're supposed to have fun. You don't have to be a tortured artist."
