The Word: Megan Fox says she lost too much weight

Megan Fox attended the Toronto International Film Festival last week.

Megan Fox tells Amica magazine that she has dropped too many pounds, so she’s ditching her vegan diet. “For a year and a half, until about four months ago, I followed a strict vegan diet based on raw fruits and vegetables, no bread, sugar and coffee,” she says. “But I had lost too much weight.”

Say what you will about Fox, but that has got to be the first time any starlet has ever admitted to being too skinny.

Speaking of numbers, the actress also says she is totally up for being a mom, but first she needs to pad out her bank account. “I want to have children. I’ve always wanted kids,” she says. “I have a number in my mind of what amount of money I want in the bank so that I can protect my child’s future.”

Hmmm. I wonder if that number has less to do with how much she has saved and is more about “what I, Megan Fox, will command from a major motion picture before I sabotage a career based on looks by having a child.”

Eva Longoria speaks the truth

Eva Longoria admits it’s a little too soon after her split from Tony Parker to think about settling down again. “I’m not opposed to it, I just don’t really give it a lot of thought,” Longoria tells Access Hollywood. “Ask a woman after divorce if she’s going to get married, you won’t get an honest answer.”
