Megan Fox, Conan


Megan Fox would have made Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Michelangelo proud with this one, which may churn up fond third grade memories.

The 28-year-old actress, who plays reporter April O'Neil in the new reboot, made a pretty good butt joke on the TBS talk show Conan on Thursday night. Host Conan O'Brien set it up by asking about her interest in astrology. He then displayed a chart created for him.

"Your moon is in Aquarius, which is a sign of the eccentric and sort of makes a little bit more sense," she said. "But the ruling planet of Aquarius is Uranus, so what I know from looking at this, just at a glance, is that your emotions are heavily tied to Uranus."

O'Brien, naturally, responded in a typical "Conan" way, while Fox continued to poke fun at him. And the audience got to see a pretty spot-on depiction of the host's "spirit animal."

O'Brien also asked Fox about her role in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a reboot of a popular comic book franchise that was adapted into movies in the past and into a slew of cartoons in the 1990s and 2000s.

The actress said she was raised in a strict Pentecostal Christian home in the South and that when she was a kid, the original '90s film was one of a couple of movies she was allowed to watch. Fox told O'Brien she planned to allow her and husband Brian Austin Green's two sons, Noah, 1, and Bodhi, who is almost 6 months, to watch films but not television when they are older.

Fox also said she was proactive in nabbing her role in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which was produced by Michael Bay, who had directed her in the first two Transformers films. The two later feuded and then reconciled.

"When I heard they were making this movie, I went out and sort of campaigned for it and sent a bunch of emails and was like, 'You know, you can cast, like, I know everyone's ideal is like, Emma Stone as April O'Neil the reporter, but I am the biggest fan,'" Fox said.

Fox, a fan favorite who became an international sex symbol partially due to the success of the first two Transformers movies, in which she played Mikaela Banes, appeared on Conan in a skintight, black, strapless, belted mini dress, paired with dark red lipstick.

In the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, O'Neil's sexuality is highlighted and the character is the subject of several sexist jokes made by characters such as the jokester of the turtles, Michelangelo. Fox said "Mikey" was her favorite turtle.

She also revealed her past crush on one of her co-stars. Watch Fox's interview on Conan below.
