It’s always wise to take anything entertainment celebrities say with a degree of skepticism … and by “degree” I’d recommend Celsius rather than Fahrenheit. So I held tightly onto my grain of salt as I read Megan Fox’s comments at San Diego’s Comic-Con:
Bigfoot’s real. And I have confidence in myself that if I were ever to be taken out on an expedition … I would be the one to find Bigfoot.
Megan was at Comic-Con promoting her new movie, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” which she’s not interested in looking for. She didn’t say how, when or where she might find the elusive Sasquatch, so her interview with People Magazine could be seen as playing to the crowd. On the other hand, it’s not the first time she’s talked about Bigfoot. In a 2013 interview in Esquire magazine, she expressed her beliefs in Bigfoot, Leprechauns, aliens and the Loch Ness Monster.
I believe in all of these Irish myths, like leprechauns. Not the pot of gold, not the Lucky Charms leprechauns. But maybe was there something in the traditional sense? I believe that this stuff came from somewhere other than people’s imaginations. What distracts me from my reality is Bigfoot.
If Megan is looking for some other big names to join her expedition, she could call Kris Allen, former lead singer of the Marshall Tucker band and noted Bigfoot investigator. Or Sir David Attenborough, the naturalist and broadcaster who believes in Yeti. Not to mention Jane Goodall, the world’s most famous primatologist, who has said she’s read all of the all of the books on Bigfoot and:
I’m not going to flat-out deny its existence. I’m fascinated and would actually love them to exist.
I’d like to see Megan lead a search for Bigfoot. With all of the paparazzi sure to be following her, at least we’d finally get some good pictures and videos.
