Megan Fox sat down with Esquire magazine for the February issue and discussed her religious views. She candidly spoke about her Pentecostal upbringing in Tennessee and about her church where she said she began speaking in tongues at the tender age of eight. The actress admitted she has seen "magical, crazy things" happen in church. "I've seen people be healed.
