Megan Fox Covers Esquire in Sheer Lingerie and Talks Religion and Lindsay Lohan (PHOTO)



After giving birth to her first child and swearing off her sexy ways, Megan Fox graces the cover of Esquire magazine's February issue wearing nothing but sheer black lingerie and a black unbuttoned blouse. The hot 26-year-old actress stares sultrily into the lenses with her long wavy hair tousled and teased. This may be a smoldering cover but don't expect a steamy hot story to go along with it. In her interview, Fox dishes about her career, her old friend Lindsay Lohan, and religion.

In the issue, Fox expresses her strong dislike for her typecast role as a sex symbol, despite the ironic cover. Referencing to her memorable sexy role in "Transformers," Fox says, "I felt powerless in that image. I didn't feel powerful. 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."

She then began discussing the harsh realities of fame. "I don't think people understand," she says. "They all think we should shut the fuck up and stop complaining because you live in a big house or you drive a Bentley. So your life must be so great. What people don't realize is that fame, whatever your worst experience in high school, when you were being bullied by those ten kids in high school, fame is that, but on a global scale, where you're being bullied by millions of people constantly."

Someone who is constantly bullied by the press is Fox's "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" costar Lindsay Lohan. Fox, who is a big fan of Marilyn Monroe, compared her old pal to the troubled icon. "She wasn't powerful at the time," Fox said of Monroe. "She was sort of like Lindsay. She was an actress who wasn't reliable, who almost wasn't insurable.... She had all the potential in the world, and it was squandered. [...] I'm not interested in following in those footsteps."

Fox also opened up about her strong religious views. The bombshell actress grew up in a Christian household and still stays true to her spiritual values. "I've read the Book of Revelation a million times," the "This is 40" star says. "It does not make sense, obviously. It needs to be decoded. What is the dragon? What is the prostitute? What are these things? What is this imagery? What was John seeing? And I was just thinking, what is the Antichrist?"

Fox also opened up about her supernatural experiences. "I have seen magical, crazy things happen. I've seen people be healed. 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."

She continued, "It feels like a lot of energy coming through the top of your head - I'm going to sound like such a lunatic - and then your whole body is filled with this electric current. And you just start speaking, but you're not thinking because you have no idea what you're saying. Words are coming out of your mouth, and you can't control it. The idea is that it's a language that only God understands. It's the language that's spoken in heaven. It's called 'getting the Holy Ghost.' "
Fox's is a believer not only when it comes to church but also fairytales. "I like believing. I believe in all of these Irish myths, like leprechauns. Not the pot of gold, not the Lucky Charms leprechauns. But maybe was there something in the traditional sense? I believe that this stuff came from somewhere other than people's imaginations. [...] We should all believe in leprechauns. I'm a believer. [...] I am childlike in my spirit, and I want to believe in fairy tales."
