Megan Fox, who stars in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, has struggled to find the right work-life balance.
“It’s so hard to be a working mom especially when your heart is not in your work, when your heart is with your family,” she tells Parents magazine. “I have to make one movie a year because I have to invest in their future and I have to be able to pay their way through college and be able to provide for them.”
This isn’t the first time that Fox has admitted that becoming a mom has changed her attitude about filmmaking. In 2012, for example, she told the UK’s Mirror that having a baby “changes your perspective about being overly sexual in a film.”
Amazingly, Fox managed to shoot the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film while she was pregnant. She tells Parents that she kept a big box of saltine crackers at the ready in case she started to feel nauseous.
