Don't let the tattoos and tough girl image fool you: Megan Fox is more than ready to settle down and start a family. The actress recently discussed her desire to have kids in an interview People magazine and admitted that she's always had a special connection with youngsters. "I've always really loved kids. I was a good babysitter. I've always loved babies. I relate to kids pretty well," Fox said.
And although she doesn't have her own kids just yet, the 25-year-old is already playing a motherly role to her husband Brian Austin Green's son, Kassius Lijah Green, who turns 10 next week.
Green told the magazine, "She's an amazing stepmom. [My son] loves her. They have a great relationship. She's always had a special bond with him. They love each other to death." The three of them recently returned from a family vacation to Hawaii, where Green and Fox were married in 2010.
And while the Friends With Kids star stated last month that she wants to have at least two children some day, she's not worried if it doesn't happen right away. In fact, her attitude is: "It will happen when it's meant to happen." It's a pretty positive, level-headed outlook. And given that she's only 25 years old, she certainly has time on her side.

Are you suffering from singing-competition-series fatigue between American Idol, The X Factor, The Voice and others? "Well, snap out of it!" says the CW.
The network announced today that it will enter the very, very crowded field of such with its own offering, The Star Next Door, and help from Queen Latifah. And Gloria Estefan. And John Rich.
Here's how the network describes it: "In this new take on the music competition genre, superstar mentors, including pop legend Gloria Estefan and country star John Rich, will travel to where the talent is, immersing themselves in the lives and towns of these local performers and preparing them for the chance to represent their home city on stage, live, in front of America."
The Star Next Door will premiere this summer, meaning we will likely not see a month without a major singing-competition series for years to come.
UPDATE: Sorry, Bachelor fans. Controversial NFL quarterback Tim Tebow will not be the new Bachelor.
He was recently approached by The Bachelor host Chris Harrison, who asked Tebow if he'd be interested in being the series' next rose-giver. And, well, he didn't say no at the time. But now, a Denver Broncos spokesman tells TheWrap that "Tim will not be participating in the show. Earlier, Harrison says, Tebow "would never do it. He has a little job called quarterback in the NFL. At least for another year!" That, or perhaps Tebow, who's been linked recently to Taylor Swift (et al.!) isn't a bachelor? Tebow wouldn't actually be the series' first football player, or even quarterback, or even former Florida Gators quarterback; that would be season 5's Jesse Palmer. Source: Access Hollywood
Married actors William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman are set for a rare honor on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: a double star!
The couple will receive their stars on the same day, March 7, joining the fairly exclusive company of Sonny and Cher and Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon, among a few others.
Macy is known for offbeat fare like Fargo (for which he earned an Oscar nomination) and Magnolia, and he now stars on the Showtime series Shameless; Huffman, meanwhile, has been a fixture on ABC's Desperate Housewives and was a Best Actress nominee for performance in 2005's Transamerica.
Lamar Odom's basketball career might've reached a new low today after he was demoted from the NBA ("the pros") to the D-League ("the minor leagues").
The demotion is reportedly not due to poor play -- although it's definitely been a down season statistically for Odom, who was traded by the Los Angeles Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks -- but rather the always vague "family matter."
In fact, it was Odom's idea to play with the Developmental League's Texas Legends before returning to the Mavericks. But it's unclear just when that'll be: Odom initially took some time off to tend to his ailing father and was supposed to meet up with his pro team after last weekend's NBA All-Star Weekend. That never happened, and, well, here we are.
For her part, Odom's famous wife, Khloe Kardashian, fired off the following, rather cryptic tweet very early Friday morning: "Crazy/weird week but I'm putting fantastic vibes out into the universe. Vibes do your thing".
Former American Idol judge and Grammy-winning songwriter/producer/musician/singer (!) Kara DioGuardi recently conducted an interesting experiment with Elle magazine: trying to quickly turn someone into a viral pop star.
DioGuardi went after hours to the fashion magazine's offices, where one of Elle's junior editors became the guinea pig -- with the help of Elle Creative Director Joe Zee and famed co-choreographers Derek Mondello and Cody Rigsby.
Check out the fun and real (yes, that's an actual Elle staffer singing!) results below in the video for the song "My Heels."
It was bound to happen eventually. Seven years, and he just couldn't take it anymore. Neil Patrick Harris appeared on The Late Show last night, and took the opportunity to answer the question How I Met Your Mother fans have been asking since 2005: "Who is the mother?"
It's probably not as easy being a Kardashian as one might think, especially when pleasant trips to Bed, Bath & Beyond are disrupted by store employees giving you graphic sexual advice. But such is life for Khloe Kardashian, whose personal life apparently means more to strangers nationwide than it does to her.
What celebrity comes to mind when you think of physical fitness? Ed Helms, of course. That's why the Hangover and The Office star has taken it upon himself to start selling workout plans—conducted by the one and only "Brian"—via a new commercial that he clearly didn't waste a lot of money funding. But production values are nothing when you're getting a quality product like this!
Airline security is pretty tough nowadays...except, of course, if you're famous. But what if you're only kinda famous? Like Taylor Kitsch, who you know you'd sort of recognize if you saw him on the street, but definitely not right away. Maybe after he showed you a trailer from his newest movie. At least, that's how he convinced an airport security officer to let him stay in the country. There might have also been a bribe involving some Apple products...
As the memories and tributes start to pour in for Davy Jones following news of his death earlier today, so do some interesting stories about the former Monkee -- like the one about him turning down the chance to be on Dancing with the Stars just last year.
According to his wife, professional dancer Jessica Pacheco, Jones would've won. "The only problem we would have is me letting him lead," she said.
Jones was very much interested in dancing, just not publicly, thus explaining why we again didn't see his name on the recently announced list of celebrities participating in the upcoming 14th season of the show. And very sadly, we will never get to see just how good of a dancer he was -- or how happy it made him.
Almost lost in the shuffle of Sunday night’s Academy Awards -- and Sacha Baron Cohen's stunt beforehand-- was the fact that Sean Young (you remember her: Blade Runner, the 1980s, Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew) was arrested at an Oscars after-party for allegedly slapping a security guard who tried to kick her out for, unsurprisingly, not having a ticket to the event. It’s just the latest incident for the once-great actress who has basically devolved into the female version of Gary Busey (we would’ve said Nick Nolte if she still got acting gigs) and got us thinking about her craziest moments. With some difficulty, we whittled them down to five …
Heckling Julian Schnabel
In January 2008, at the prestigious, serious-minded Directors Guild of America Awards, Julian Schnabel was giving his acceptance speech for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, but it was a little unexciting for Young, who yelled, “Come on, get to it!” She was escorted out by security, and soon thereafter “voluntarily” entered rehab for alcohol abuse.
Catwoman Craziness, Part 1
A well-known true Hollywood story is the one about Young being cast in Tim Burton’s Batman as Vicki Vale, only to be replaced by Kim Basinger after Young broke her arm during rehearsals. That’s the unfortunate part of the story; the weird part involves Young going to the Warner Bros. lot and pleading to Burton and Michael Keaton for the role of Catwoman in the 1992 sequel … while wearing a homemade Catwoman suit.
Catwoman Craziness, Part 2
In a bizarre (to say the least) appearance on Late Show with David Letterman just last year, Young again donned her own Catwoman suit, this time in a clip in which she essentially begs passersby for working and yells, “I’m not crazy!” Truly a little disturbing.
Riding the Aniston Train
Last night wasn’t Young’s first run-in with the law at an Oscars after-party. That’s right – at the Vanity Fair gathering in 2006, she used the excitement caused by Jennifer Aniston’s arrival to create a diversion that would enable her to sneak in undetected. She only enjoyed a few minutes of glory before security got wind of her successful breach, but … this stunt was actually kinda impressive and in a way the smartest thing she’s done in about a decade.
Sued for Harassment by James Woods
Nobody remembers the fairly awful 1988 romance drama The Boost – but a lot of people probably can’t forget the real-life romance drama that followed it: Stars James Woods and Young shared a passionate-turned-tumultuous relationship whose end was punctuated by Woods’ claims that Young was stalking him and his $2 million harassment lawsuit against her. (Young maintains her innocence and calls the debacle a misunderstanding.)
Most teenagers would take being cast as a popular girl who terrorizes Lindsay Lohan in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen as a sign that they might be kind of hot.
However, in the March issue of MIAMI Magazine, Megan Fox says that when she was younger she had no inkling that in a few short years she'd receive one of Hollywood's highest honors: The title of FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World.
"I was never the pretty girl," Fox, 25, tells the magazine, adding that as a teen she was "abrasive" and "obnoxious."
Fox explains that while growing up she didn't have mainstream interests and felt like a "loner," raising the possibility that there may be some photos floating around of Fox dolled up in a Princess Leia bikini. That may sound pretty enticing if you too lived on the fringes of high school society, but Fox has made some other oddball comments that may give you pause:
1) In June 2007, Fox told FHM: “I’m horrible to live with. I don’t clean. My clothes end up wherever I take them off. I forget to flush the toilet. Friends will tell me, 'Megan, you totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.'” So if you're planning on shacking up with Fox, be sure you can afford a (non-judgemental) maid.
2) And you'll also need to stock up on Glade. In October 2008 Fox quipped to GQ, “If you eat Chinese food, your farts come out like Chinese food. If you eat Mexican food, your farts come out like Mexican food. And milk, it’s like—you can smell the warmth in the fart. My wardrobe on Transformers always smells like farts, and I have no idea why.”
3) Fox is prone to pot-induced rambling that doesn't sound quite so deep if you're in a sober state. Here's a sample from Esquire: “Ok, well let me tell you what [High School Musical] is really about. High School Musical is about this group of boys who are all being molested by the basketball coach, who is Zac Efron’s dad. It’s about them struggling to cope with this molestation. And they have these little girlfriends, who are their beards. Oh, and somehow there’s music involved. You have to get stoned to watch it."
4) As Fox explained on the red carpet at the Golden Globes in 2009, she looks exactly like Alan Alda. "I am pretty sure I am a doppelganger for Alan Alda. I'm a tranny. I'm a man. I'm so painfully insecure. I'm on the verge of vomiting now. I am so horrified that I am here, and embarrassed. I'm scared." Prepare for sexy time to start resembling a M*A*S*H porn parody.
5) According to Rolling Stone, her vagina may put on a Jason mask and jump out of the closet with a chainsaw: "[My secret is] a powerful, confident vagina. Men are scared of vaginas. [A woman is most powerful when she is] completely in charge of her sexuality."
Of course, by all accounts Fox is happily married to Brian Austin Green, and there's pretty much no chance that she'll be hooking up with a random fan. So for the time being, feel free to keep enjoying your Alan Alda-free Megan Fox fantasies.
