(CBS) Megan Fox has been busy  promoting her new film, "Friends with Kids," which centers around two friends (Adam Scott, Jennifer Westfeldt) who decide to conceive and raise a child together while maintaining a plutonic relationship.

Fox, who plays a love interest for Scott's character, told  CBSNews.com at a recent New York screening of the comedy  that such a child-raising partnership wouldn't be for her.

"I could never do it," Fox said. "I could never pull it off. But maybe some people could get away with it and be happy with the results. I just...I worry about it."

The 25-year-old sex symbol stars in this independent feature alongside several cast members from last year's smash hit "Bridesmaids," including Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jon Hamm, and Chris O'Dowd, who made a strong impression on Fox.

"[Chris O'Dowd is] so hysterical and so strange and so inappropriate with his humor," Fox said, "And I was crying, watching him do his scenes and listening to him improv under his breath."

But with such an ensemble cast, Fox pointed out, all her co-stars were impressive. "There's so many actors in this that are just geniuses. And it was amazing to get to just watch them work and observe them in their natural habitat."

"Friends with Kids" was written and directed by Westfeldt, who is also the long-time partner of "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm. The comedy opens in theaters on Friday.
