Megan Fox: 'I Made My Mom Call Me Dorothy'

Megan Fox opens up to the New York Times in her Screen Test segment, released this weekend.

The 23-year-old Transformers bombshell spoke about her Wizard of Oz obsession, swimming and her tattoos.

On The Wizard of Oz: I wanted to be Dorothy for many years of my life! Until I was about six, I would wear my hair in pigtails and I think my grandmother made the costume – the little gingham checked jumper – and I had ruby slippers.

“I made my mom call me Dorothy. I wouldn’t answer her or listen to her if she called me Megan ’cause that wasn’t my name.”

On swimming: “I was a swimmer when I was a kid. I was on a competitive team from the time I was 5 until I was 14 and I used to compete in state championships. I thought that’s what I was gonna be.

“I have a pretty strong butterfly still. I’m much slower than I used to be, which is very sad. But it’s still decent – my form is there, the speed is gone.”

On getting tattoos: “When I get tattoos, I don’t necessarily think them out. I don’t put a lot of thought into them the way that some people do. They’re sort of more impulsive purchases.”

Check out the video for more from Megan, including her movie with Mary-Kate and Ashley, the X-Men and what gives her panic attacks…
