Megan Fox is best known for her role in films like “Transformers”, but in an interview with Esquire, she’s talked a bit about her faith, the church she’s been attending and speaking in tongues.
The actress revealed that she first began speaking in tongues at the age of eight, growing up in a Pentecostal church in Tennessee. Fox, who gave birth to a son last September, said she is making church a priority these days.

She also talks about how she’s seen “crazy things happen.”

Even now, in the church I go to, during Praise and Worship I could feel that I was maybe getting ready to speak in tongues, and I’d have to shut it off because I don’t know what that church would do if I started screaming out in tongues in the back”

“It ate every other part of my personality, not for me but for how people saw me, because there was nothing else to see or know. That devalued me. Because I wasn’t anything. I was an image. I was a picture. I was a pose” …
