Josh Duhamel returned to the world of battling shape-shifting robots in "Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen," on Wednesday. And in a new interview with the July 2009 issue of Men's Health magazine, the actor said he's finally reached the point in his career he'd always dreamed about.
"It's starting to happen. It's been 12 years. And I feel like I'm finally starting to get looks at some of the things I've always wanted to do," he told the mag. "I have a lot more flexibility I can show. That's what makes it fun. That's why I love this business. I don't want to do things just to prove to people 'Look how dark I can be.' It's about the story. It has to be a good story."

And though he's at the top of his acting game, he's also looking forward to starting a family with wife Fergie, whom he wed in January.
"I want to do good work, but having kids and a life outside of that is important. If you don't have anybody around who loves you, then what's it all for? You're just lonely in the end," he explained. "It's all about whatever enriches you. If you decide to go the domestic route and get married and all those things, it makes you a better actor."
And when the couple does decide to start a family, the world will know.
"We try to stay away from the places where the paparazzi hang out," he continued. "Still, they're outside the house every morning."
