MEGAN Fox claims domesticity keeps her sane.
The Jonah Hex actress, who is engaged to actor Brian Austin Green and helps raise his eight-year-old son Kassius, says people would be surprised to realise how much she prefers home life to wild parties.
She says: "Oddly, you wouldn't think it, but I'm very domestic. That keeps me sane.
"I sort of distance myself from the Hollywood crowd. I don't go out and socialise that way."
The 24-year-old star admits she sometimes finds the scrutiny over her personal life "overwhelming", but thinks she has the strength to cope with fame.
She adds: "People who make it to this level of fame for whatever reason - whether deserved or not - have to be strong to survive it.
"Because it is very difficult to be under the microscope every moment of every day. It becomes overwhelming."
The brunette beauty recently admitted that she sometimes makes up stories about herself in order to divert attention about her personal life.
She explains: "In the past I've been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality, so I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what's really going on in my life.
"So I have sort of aided the media in printing these misconceptions, which I regret." - Bang
