Megan Fox Says Her Marriage to Brian Austin Green Was “Unfulfilling”

Megan Fox feels it was her destiny to meet Machine Gun Kelly, but she doesn’t necessarily have the same feelings about her marriage to Brian Austin Green.

Appearing on the March 20 episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast, the actor explained why her first major relationship was, in some ways, a big mistake.

“I got myself into a relationship, which I of course found—no shade to Brian, unfulfilling—because inevitably, that’s what I was going to do, because I was reenacting what I watched my mother do as a child,” Fox said.

She and Green met on the set of her sitcom Hope & Faith in 2004, when Fox was 18, and dated on and off for years before marrying in 2010. They had three boys—Noah, 11, Bodhi, 10, and Journey, 7—before separating in 2020. Their divorce was finalized in February 2022.

“I do feel like, karmically, I was supposed to have those kids with [Brian], of course,” the Jennifer’s Body star continued. “So I didn’t realize … you know, I wasn’t looking at myself being like, ‘Oh, I’m reenacting my mother’s life’ or ‘I’m carrying my mother’s burdens.’ ”

Fox admitted she “was not a great girlfriend to Brian,” adding: “And he was not great to me either all the time, but I think it would be easy for me to lean into and complain about [it] or let it seem like that relationship was one-way.”

She noted that she was too young when she and Green got together, and “really should not have been in a relationship of that level of commitment and magnitude.”

Fox added that because she never got to really date anyone else before committing to Green, she also spent her marriage having crushes on other people.

She said she “did a lot of, like, falling in love with other people all the time” over the course of her relationship with the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum. “I would go to work and fall in love, because I was a kid,” Fox said. “I never had the full freedom to be single and experience that life. And I thought for a minute when I got divorced that that’s what I was gonna do, and I was single for, like, three weeks.”

Then she found Kelly (born Colson Baker). Fox recalled the moment they met on the set of their movie Midnight in the Switchgrass in 2020: “We were doing a scene and I had seen his picture before he showed up, and I knew just from his picture—I was like, ‘I recognize that person,’ and I looked into his eyes and I was like, ‘Oh yeah, it's you, I’ve known you for thousands of years,’ ” Fox said.
