Some are calling Knoxville-area native Megan Fox's recently released interview with Esquire magazine her most bizarre yet.

How odd does it get?

We're talking belief in leprechauns, ancient Mayans human sacrifice, her thoughts on the book of Revelation and whether she would ever speak in tongues. The Antichrist gets a good working over, too.

Critics are calling it the "worst" written piece ever for the magazine if it is any consolation for Fox.

"I've read the Book of Revelation a million times," she is quoted as telling the magazine.

"It does not make sense, obviously. It needs to be decoded. What is the dragon? What is the prostitute? What are these things?

"What is this imagery? What was John seeing? And I was just thinking, 'What is the Antichrist?'"

She claims to have super powers, too. In her defense, Fox did play Lois Lane in an animated Superman movie once.

"I have seen magical, crazy things happen. I've seen people be healed," she said. "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."

Fox also is quoted as saying she has a "dream job" — since, apparently, acting, modeling and being adored are not enough. She wants to be an archaeologist.

"I feel like there's stuff literally buried there and buried where the Maya were," she says.

As for ancient aliens who gave rise to ancient civilizations on earth: "I would like to uncover the secrets of the universe. In my fantasy."

She believes in leprechauns, but not the Lucky Charms kind or the type at the end of a rainbow coveting a pot of gold.

Come on, now. It's not like she's crazy.

"Maybe was there something in the traditional sense?" she said in the interview.

"I believe that this stuff came from somewhere other than people's imaginations."

She thinks aliens from other worlds exist — and has said previously her favorite show is "Ancient Aliens." Fox is all about the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot, too.

If only she'd been around Knoxville late last fall, she could have joined "The Finding Bigfoot" crew when they were in the area.

Fox, 26, is a native of Oak Ridge. She said she was raised "very strictly Pentecostal." Her parents divorced, and she and her mother moved to Florida while her father stayed in the Knoxville area, where he remains today.

Fox trained in drama and dance at age 5 in Kingston, where she attended a dance class at the community center there and was involved in Kingston Elementary School's chorus and the Kingston Clippers swim team.

At best your comment is inappropriate. There is NOTHING in this post that is about party politics and comments such as yours serve no purpose.

Well, it makes sense she would discuss the topics listed in this headline. She is married to the first and is likely the spawn of the second and third. TOE THUMBS!
