Megan Fox recently caused quite a stir with her comments in Esquire magazine. The actress grew up in Tennessee and attended a Pentecostal church and spoke candidly about the experience of speaking in tongues:
"It feels like a lot of energy coming through the top of your head – I'm going to sound like such a lunatic – and then your whole body is filled with this electric current. And you just start speaking, but you're not thinking because you have no idea what you're saying. Words are coming out of your mouth, and you can't control it," the actress explained to the publication. "The idea is that it's a language that only God understands. It's the language that's spoken in heaven. It's called 'getting the Holy Ghost.'"
