Megan Fox wants more babies soon, says “I’ve never been validated by work or fame or Hollywood”

Megan Fox lands the March cover of Marie Claire UK, and here are some images from the mag. Megan Fox is changing, no? I swear she’s had a lot of work done on her face. Her cheekbones have gotten bigger, for sure. What other work has she had done? Her lips?

Anyway, in the magazine, she opens up about being a mom. She recently gave birth to her first child with husband Brian Austin Green, and she can’t wait to have more kids.

While the devoted mother-of-one is grateful for her successful Hollywood film career, she has admitted all she wants to do is spend time with her four-month-old son Noah and hopes to give him siblings as soon as possible.

The ‘This is 40′ actress said: “I’ve never been validated by work or fame or Hollywood or any of that. I recognize the blessings when they come – like, I recognize I’m so lucky to work with Judd [Apatow] – but the ultimate satisfaction for me is being with my son. I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can. And I want to have more kids. That is where my heart is.”

Megan, 26, confessed having a baby has been a lifelong dream and she is now finding it a struggle to juggle her filming commitments with motherhood because she feels work has become redundant.

She sighed: ”All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it… It’s very hard for me to do this stuff, because I feel like this isn’t my job any more. My job is to be with him.”

Fox also credited Noah with helping her battle against OCD, explaining: “When they come out they are covered in all kinds of stuff. I took him right on my chest and, from that moment, nothing he does freaks me out. I don’t want to give him a complex.”

The brunette beauty also revealed the secret to her marital bliss with ‘Beverly Hills, 90210′ hunk Brian Austin Green – who she wed in June 2010 – claiming it takes hard work and a good dose of tolerance because the pair are polar opposites of each other.
Megan told Marie Claire magazine: ”I just think we got lucky. I believe he’s my soulmate. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t take work, because we are very, very different. ‘But we are tolerant of each other and we try to be patient with each other, and I don’t try to turn him into me and he knows not to try to turn me into him. He really is amazing. I should never, ever even think about complaining.”

I really liked her interview. I found it interesting that she doesn’t need Hollywood, but for some reason I believe her. She does seem so much different since becoming a mom. She seems more real…. well, except for that face.

The gorgeous Heidi Klum covers the February issue of Marie Claire!

Heidi Klum lands the February cover of Marie Claire, and she looks more beautiful than ever! In the interview, she opened up about Project Runway, her children, her divorce from Seal, sex and more. What she didn’t talk about was her new boyfriend, ex-bodyguard Martin Kirsten.

Heidi’s fantasy guest judge for Project Runway: Michelle Obama – “I don’t think we’ve ever had a first lady who is as cool and fashion-oriented as she is.”

On her mom, Erna: “She told me, ‘Don’t ever depend on a man,’” Klum says. “So I started making a living for myself when I was 18.”

A funny quote from Michael Kors, on filming the show with Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia: “After going through three pregnancies with Heidi and two with Nina, I know more about maternity life than any man gay or straight has a right to. I am so ticklish that Heidi once chased me around the runway chairs, jumped on me, and startled me, at which point I fainted – what man wouldn’t?”

Heidi on her divorce from Seal: “People say, ‘Oh, God, how devastating to go through a divorce. Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No. But everyone is healthy; we’re moving on with our lives. If someone got [very sick], God forbid, that would be a real problem. It’s not what I wanted – it’s not what anyone wanted – but it’s not a real problem.”

Heidi on sex: “Some people are more experimental in bed and others are more boring. If you are wild and crazy, bring it on so the other person is well aware that you have little devil horns that come out every once in a while. It’s good to make an effort to dress up sometimes, to do things outside of the norm.”

Heidi’s not interested in being a cougar: “I can understand why a woman finds a young man attractive, because the truth is that when men get older, their shape changes. Younger men train more, and when the clothes come off, it is nice to look at a sexy, ripped body. But I am realistic. I’m turning 40 next year; I don’t think I could deal with waking up next to a 25-year-old.”

On the idea of marrying again: “I don’t think so. No. No. I wanted to keep the memory of our wedding alive every year, that’s why I thought it would be fun to get married over and over. But now I don’t think it’s that important. I’m not angry about anything, but I don’t think I will. Maybe if I’m with someone for 15 or 20 years, and we do it in our old age as a fun thing to do…But I don’t have the urgency anymore.”

How people reacted to her first pregnancy: What others classify as problematic, Klum simply doesn’t. When she was 30 and pregnant by Italian race car magnate Flavio Briatore, her handlers were “freaking out,” saying, “I don’t know how the fashion industry will take you back after this.” For Klum, abortion wasn’t an option, and she walked the Victoria’s Secret runway show at four months along, with no one the wiser. “I thought, This is what is happening, and I’m going to embrace it,” she says. “I will figure it out, whatever comes my way.”

I loved the interview. I think she comes off as really interesting and intelligent. I like her quotes on divorce, and marrying again. It does seem like she really has her priorities in line.

Ashley Greene opens up about how ‘Twilight’ changed her in the new Marie Claire.

Ashley Greene covers the November issue of Marie Claire, and inside the magazine she has lots to say about ‘Twilight’ and how it’s changed who she is. The actress reveals how she’s dealing with her newfound fame, and more importantly how she copes with it.

“It was a hard adjustment going from zero to 100 in a day,” the 25-year-old “Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ star tells the magazine. “But it was also hard to talk to [friends], because you don’t want to be a jerk. After the movie ["Twilight"] came out, some people said, ‘You changed.’ And I said, ‘I haven’t changed, dude. Your opinion of me has changed because I’m working on this film.’ Trust me, my parents would let me know.”

But although some of her pals couldn’t deal with her blossoming career, Greene says she understands that it’s hard to keep in touch with people when you’re always traveling or on location.

“I’m always here and there — everyone in my industry is — and that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting,” she explains. “I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish.”

As for her love life, Greene says that’s a struggle too, considering she doesn’t have enough time to devote to romance.

“You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie,” she says. “It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.”

As for how she’s adjusting to her life in the spotlight, Greene admits stardom has its perks, including first-class plane tickets.

“‘Twilight’ has ruined me,” Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the hit franchise, reveals. “When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me. It is just not worth it to buy a first-class ticket, because of the cost.”

Still, the money she saves from those international flights will go toward maintaining her new life.

“I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save,” she says. “And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.”

I’ve met Ashley a couple times, and she is shockingly beautiful. She’s tiny and her skin looks like porcelain. She is beyond nice….seems like a really good person. She looks gorgeous in Marie Claire as well!

Gwen Stefani graces the October cover of Marie Claire: “My biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far”

Gwen Stefani is Marie Claire’s October cover girl, and she is looking hotter than ever these days!

Some sites are commenting on her face, and whether or not she’s getting plastic surgery. If she is, it’s not obvious. I think she looks pretty fantastic.

In the magazine she opens up about her relationship with Gavin Rossdale, and considers her marriage her “biggest accomplishment”. Here are some more highlights via Celebitchy:

On rearing two high-energy boys just a few years apart in age: “From the moment they wake up, they start beating on each other. I never knew they would be so physical. They’re just starting to play real well together, but with a lot of fighting. They do look out for each other – especially the little one, he really loves his older brother.”

On what her 10 year anniversary with Gavin Rossdale represents: “A miracle…my biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard.” She continues: “[Marriage] is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together.”

On her relationship with husband Gavin Rossdale: “[Our relationship] is better than it’s ever been. Like, we’re learning about each other all the time. He’s an amazing dad, he works so hard – I can hear him writing songs through the wall, and it is at a much quicker pace than me!” Above all, she adds, “He balances me out. And he – he never stops liking me, which is awesome! It makes me feel happy, that someone likes me as much as he does.”

On having a third child: “I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn’t really work out. So…I feel good with what we’ve got. Everything works out how it should. You can’t plan anything, right? You can try.”

No Doubt’s new album Push And Shove: “My favorite record. I mean, your favorite record is always the last one you did, but it really is—it’s a really great record.”

Being a mom and a rock star: “I was definitely swimming upstream,” she says, “trying to balance everything that’s been going on with having kids and a family. There’s no way to do all these things.”

Working on the new album: “I would be up all night because my second baby [Zuma, now 4] didn’t sleep, and he had a lot of ear infections. Then I’d wake up in the morning and do my workout, which I always felt I had to do, and then meetings for my three clothing lines, and then hang out with my kids, take them topreschool, da-da-da. And then at 4 o’clock, I’d be like, ‘All right, I’m out of here, I’m going to go to the studio’ and try to write a record. Sit on the couch [with my bandmates] and be like, ‘Let’s do this now because I’m missing time with the kids; I could be having dinner with them and putting them to bed.’ It was really hard.”

Balancing: “Every day I fail at something,” she laments. “Every day someone is suffering because I’m doing all these things.”

Downsizing: “I’ve got myself in a lot of trouble by not saying no.” The solocareer? Buh-bye. Her weight? She’s got a new approach: “This last year I kind of stopped working out. I think my body just needed a break. And so I did that, and focused more on feeling good as opposed to beating myself up.” She’s even eased up her efforts on her L.A.M.B. (Love, Angel, Music, Baby) fashion line. “I have learned to delegate. It still looks awesome, but did I pick out the buttons? No, I didn’t. I missed the last two Fashion Weeks because they were when school started; I can’t miss the first week of kindergarten.”

I love her, and I love her relationship with Gavin! I saw them in concert – on the tour that brought them together back in the 90′s. The tour where ‘No Doubt’ opened for ‘Bush’. It was amazing!

Speaking of ‘No Doubt’, I sure hope the rest of their new album is good. I’m not a huge fan of the first single.
