Megan Fox misses premiere

October 28th, 2014

Megan Fox was forced to miss the Beijing premiere of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' after being stricken by an allergic reaction.

The 28-year-old beauty - who plays April O'Neil in the new movie - had joined co-star William Fichtner, producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore at a press conference early on Sunday (26.10.14) but was absent from the premiere later that day, prompting speculation she had suffered a reaction to the heavy pollution in China.

However, her spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter: ''She had an allergic reaction but not because of the pollution.''

On Sunday, the air quality in the city was more than 20 times higher than the recommendation for 24-hour exposure by the World Health Organisation.

Megan recently admitted she hopes appearing in the movie will impress Noah, two, and Bodhi, seven months - her kids with husband Brian Austin Green - when they grow up.

She explained: ''I wanted to do this movie because I was a fan as a kid, obviously, but also I wanted to do it because I think I anticipate that my sons will be like, 'My mom is April O'Neil!'

''I'm sure that won't happen, because no matter what I do for work, I'm still always just their mom and I'm never gonna be cool.

''But I hope that like, maybe when they're 25, they'll look back and be like, 'That was pretty rad,' because you know, if my dad had been in 'Point Break,' I would be like, 'That's amazing!'''
