Megan Fox: ‘It’s so hard to be a working mom’

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.

Is Megan going through the same struggles that any working mom deals with or is it different because she’s a mom with money and fame? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
