26-year-old actress Megan Fox is best known for her roles in movies like "Transformers," but the new mother recently spoke about her battle with fame and speaking in tongues at her current place of worship, the Christian Post reports. Fox, who will appear as the cover girl in the February issue of Esquire magazine, said she was making church a priority these days and revealed that she first began speaking in tongues at the age of 8, growing up in a Pentecostal church in Tennessee. "It's called 'getting the Holy Ghost,'" she said, adding that she has seen "magical, crazy things happen" at church: "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." While some have viewed Fox as sex symbol, she said she did not want that role to define who she is. "I felt powerless in that image," she said. "... 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."
