It's safe to say motherhood has not mellowed Megan Fox.

Brian Austin Green's missus (and Noah's mommy!) looks hot and scantily clad as ever on the cover of this month's Esquire (you're welcome, fellas) and proves just as riveting inside the magazine's pages, showing she gives quote as well as ever, as she compares Lindsay Lohan to Marilyn Monroe (and sorry, LiLo, but not in a good way) plus waxes on about her penchant for speaking in tongues and rereading the Bible and why fame is nothing but one big bully.

The inked-up starlet wasted no time in talking tattoos, and discussed some of her more infamous pieces with the magazine. As for her Marilyn tat, Fox has been steadily working to remove the piece, and indeed there are just a few trails of black left on her arm where the image once was (according to her, it will be followed in its removal by a Nietzsche quote and another on her ribcage that reads, "There once was a little girl who never knew love until a boy broke her heart.")

As for Marilyn, though, Fox no longer wants that type of energy on her person.

"I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult. It's like when you visualize something for your future. I didn't want to visualize something so negative," she said.

"She wasn't powerful at the time. She was sort of like Lindsay. She was an actress who wasn't reliable, who almost wasn't insurable...She had all the potential in the world, and it was squandered. I'm not interested in following those footsteps."

Ouch. Meanwhile, there are certain celebrities (to use her word) that Fox does have fondness for.

"Would you not be so much more interested in finding out that Bigfoot existed than in watching a really good movie? I believe in aliens...Loch Ness monster—there's something to it...There's the Bell Witch...What distracts me from my reality is Bigfoot. They are my celebrities."

Erm, OK. Though it makes slightly more sense when Fox reveals her relationship with fame as a whole.

"I don't think people understand. They all think we should shut the f--k up and stop complaining because you live in a big house or you drive a Bentley. So your life must be great.

"What people don't realize is that fame, whatever your worst experience in high school, when you were being bullied by those 10 kids in high school, fame is that, but on a global scale, where you're being bullied by millions of people constantly."

One activity that seems to give her more of a sense of control is—wait for it—speaking in tongues, something she began when she was 8 years old and attending a Pentecostal church in Tennessee.

"The energy is so intense in the room that you feel like anything can happen," she said, adding that she's "read the Book of Revelation a million times."

"I have seen magical, crazy things happen. I've seen people be healed. Even now, in the church I go to, during Praise and Worship, I could feel that I was maybe getting ready to speak in tongues, and I'd have to shut it off because I don't know what that church would do if I started screaming out in tongues in the back."

That makes two of us.
