While this may not normally be considered big Mortal Kombat news, the site What They Play recently posted an interview with actress Megan Fox, best known as the character of Mikaela Barnes in both Transformers movies. In the interview, one of the first questions she is asked is what games she is good at, and surprisingly the first answer that comes to mind is Mortal Kombat! From the interview:

What videogames did you like playing growing up?

Megan Fox: My first gaming console was the Super Nintendo when I was about nine, and my first game was Aladdin. I remember playing that as a wee child. I've always really loved video games. Some of them, unfortunately, I'm not very good at playing, but some of them I'm kind of a badass at.

So which games are you badass at?

Megan Fox: Anything Mortal Kombat. I have that down and I don't cheat. That game just works well with my brain. The way my brain fires signals works well with how that game works. And I'm just really good.

And you memorized all the Fatality moves?

Megan Fox: Most of them. Not all of them. The Mortal Kombat that just came out (Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe), I hated playing as Superman. His combos were so weird. I don't know, I just thought it was lame.

So you're a big fan of the fighting games?

Megan Fox: Yeah.

What have you played recently?

Megan Fox: Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. And I also like to go back to a game called Viva Pinata every once in a while, which is really embarrassing. But it's kind of addicting. You're nursing this garden of piƱatas and it's a lot of fun.

The interview also says that she plays online, when asking if she's ever played Shia LeBoeuf online, so who knows... the next stranger you fight online in MK may be her!
