    • 2016 June 2, Melena Ryzik, “Megan Fox on ‘Ninja Turtles’ and Female Stereotypes in Film”, in New York Times[1]:
      On a movie like this, I don’t mind doing [the scene] as written, but I do do a lot of improv. I’m sort of a rapid-fire ballsy talker, and so I bring that to the character whenever it’s appropriate to the scene. That never makes it in.
