‘Sexiest Woman in the World’ Calls Pregnancy ‘Creating a Life’

The pro-life attitude might not permeate Hollywood, but this actress isn’t afraid to speak up. 

Megan Fox, once hailed by the media as FHM Men’s Magazine’s “Sexiest Woman in the World,” graced the cover of Cosmopolitan’s August issue. For her latest piece, Cosmo’s Laurie Sandell interviewed the 28-year-old “Transformers” star on everything from Hollywood to sexuality. A mother of two, Fox explained how pregnancy is “hot” by defining it as “creating a life.” 

When Sandell asked if pregnancy was “hot or not?” Fox replied with “hot.” “You are creating a life inside you,” she said, “who will become a person who will change the course of history, no matter what they do.” 

Continuing her praise of pregnancy, Fox told Sandell “there’s a power that comes with having a child” because “you’ve done something incredible that no man could ever do or understand.” 

But, a star in the upcoming “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Fox confessed her career imposes on motherhood. “I’m grateful for my career, but I also resent it because it takes me away from the thing I feel I’m meant to be doing,” she admitted. At another point, she disclosed, “Once you become a mother, especially a working mother, you feel like you can never give enough of yourself.” 

Another issue Fox considered “hot”? Monogamy. “There’s no other option. You can’t be in a relationship without monogamy,” she expressed. 

The story showed a different side of Cosmo, which so often promotes the end of pregnancy.
