Megan Fox was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
Fox’s upbringing was heavily Catholic and she attended a Catholic school for the entirety of her education.
But there’s something fishy going on here. In one interview, she says:
I was raised Catholic.
Very simple and straightforward, right? But in another interview, she goes into depth about the fundamentalism of a Pentecostal church she regularly attended growing up. Pentecostal denominations are some of the most, shall we say, involved sects of Christianity. These are the convulsions-on-the-floor, speaking-in-tongues, healing-the-sick-onstage churches. She said:
The energy is so intense in the room that you feel like anything can happen. They’re going to hate that I compare it to this, but have you ever watched footage of a Santeria gathering or someone doing voodoo? You know how palpable the energy is? Whatever’s going on there, it’s for real.
I’m not sure the reason behind this double-speak.
However, even though she was inundated with heavy-handed religion for so long, it doesn’t seem to have stuck with Fox, who now regularly attends services at a non-denominational Christian church with her husband. It would appear, as per her description, that her current church is rather liberal with its policies and recommendations, and that’s a big plus for Fox. She says:
I’ve always been intrigued and repulsed by how divisive and hateful different Christian denominations are to one another despite their obvious commonalities and interconnections. [The church I attend is] not judgmental, does not close its doors to anybody, and has a young, active, passionate congregation, which is how I like to experience church.
Despite the fact that Fox just oozes sexuality and sensuality, she seems to be a rather traditionally-minded girl who doesn’t like to party and enjoys her “normal” life with her husband and child. She says:
Oddly you wouldn’t think it, but I’m very domestic. That keeps me sane. I sort of distance myself from the Hollywood crowd.
Megan Fox’s political views can be best understood when one grasps the nuances of the Transformers Universe. You see, a race of evil giant robots known as the Decepticons is hell-bent on taking over planet Earth and the only thing standing in their way is a race of good giant robots known as the Autobots.
Now, when Megan Fox was asked how she, personally, would handle a potential Decepticon invasion, she said she would prefer diplomatic negotiations with the Decepticon leader, Megatron, where she would make him an offer he can’t refuse. She said:
I’d barter with him and say instead of the entire planet, can you just take out all of the white trash, hillbilly, anti-gay, super bible-beating people in Middle America?
Well! Let’s take this to its logical conclusion. She doesn’t like people who are “anti-gay,” which would make her “pro-gay.” She doesn’t like “bible-beaters” despite being admittedly religious herself. One could assume that she is quite militantly liberal, then.
Plus, she thinks Obama is sexy.
