Strange things about Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green's marriage Getty Images Mike Redmond When Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green secretly married in , they were coming off of a rocky six-year relationship that had already seen its share of ups and downs in the spotlight.
Naturally, their marriage hasn't gone smoothly either, and adding babies into the mix is a strain for any couple. But things would become even more complicated when an accident leaves him unable to work and resentment pushes her to the brink of divorce before a surprise pregnancy changes everything. Basically, there's never a dull moment with these two. Green, on the other hand, was already 30, a father, and an actor whose glory days on were behind him. Yet Fox actively pursued Green. You're not a threat, you're not some d-bag that's going to cause a lot of problems.
Green, however, was reluctant to date an 18 year old. Things got sketchy when she made Transformers Getty Images In , Fox became one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood after starring in Transformers.
But some unsavory facts would come up about her time with the blockbuster franchise while she was presumably still in a relationship with Green. In order for Fox land the role of Mikaela Banes, director Michael Bay reportedly made the actress wash his Ferrari while he filmed it for a secret audition tape, according to the San Francisco Gate.
Even shadier, Bay claims he doesn't know what happened to the tape, which makes the whole thing feel like a gross casting couch situation. But things would get worse for Fox in when co-star Shia LaBeouf told Details via Us Weekly that the two hooked up while filming the first two Transformers films.
But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen," LaBeouf oddly decided to share. And he really didn't make the situation better when he answered "I don't know" eight times after being asked if Fox and Green were still together at the time. They broke up then got secretly married Getty Images Despite doing whatever it took to land herself a role in Transformers, Fox found herself fired from the franchise in after she referred to Bay as "Hitler" in an interview, which reportedly angered producer Steven Spielberg, according to GQ.
On top of that, an open letter from three crewmembers would paint her as a difficult on-set diva. It was not exactly the best time in her career, and her relationship with Green had also hit a rough patch when the two called off their engagement earlier that same year. However, while the newly-single Fox became the subject of tabloid fodder as she struggled to find work outside of Transformers, she would remain defensive about the private details of her relationship with Green and shoot down rumors of dating Robert Pattinson in an interview with Elle.
Turns out the couple was making things work behind the scenes and surprised everyone by secretly getting married in a private ceremony in Hawaii in June , according to E!
But there were still bumpy roads ahead. She allegedly encouraged him to attack the paparazzi Getty Images As Fox's career continued to struggle, her relationship with media became strained to the point where Green was sued for allegedly attacking a photographer in Hawaii at Fox's request. According to TMZ , a heated exchange with a photographer allegedly escalated when Megan yelled to Green, "Are you going to let him get away with that?
Maybe don't go putting that on wedding gifts. Their first baby was an ordeal Getty Images In September , Fox and Green welcomed their first son Noah, but not before a harrowing car ride to the hospital involving lots of yelling and concerns about wet hair.
And I thought I was gonna be really tough and make it, I was gonna labor to like 8 cm… but the first contraction that I got was horrific! Fortunately, mom and baby did just fine, but not long after the pregnancy, Fox would start heavily researching the End of Days. Which is one way to adapt to parenthood, we guess.
She became obsessed with the Biblical End Times Getty Images A few months after giving birth to her first son, Fox sat down with Esquire and proceeded to let the magazine know about her fixation with the Book of Revelation. Which was an odd departure from earlier interviews where she often bemoaned her strict religious upbringing. It needs to be decoded," Fox said.
What is the prostitute? What are these things? What is this imagery? What was John seeing? And I was just thinking, What is the Antichrist? Is it possible that it's the Internet or fame itself or celebrity? Yeah… They seemed to find their groove with the second baby Getty Images While their first baby arrived in dramatic fashion, complete with visions of the End Times, Fox and Green sounded like they were finally getting into the swing of things and were a little more prepared for the arrival of their next baby.
In fact, soon-to-be-dads might want to take notes on this next part. Unfortunately, Green's optimism about juggling a wife, two kids, and his work on Anger Management would quickly fade after an accident would take his income out of the equation and make Fox the sole breadwinner for the family. He had to stop working after an accident gave him vertigo Getty Images When Fox filed for divorce in , Green would be publicly roasted for requesting spousal support from his wife who still had a viable acting career.
However, TMZ uncovered court documents that revealed Green suffers from vertigo and had been unable to work after an accident exacerbated his medical condition.
She went crawling back to Bay to pay the bills Getty Images After her very public spat with Bay, Fox's career went into freefall after she was fired from the Transformers franchise. But with Green's vertigo and sporadic employment, someone had to support their growing family, so Fox extended an olive branch to her old Transformers director.
In the end she realized that Michael may be a hard taskmaster, but he does it purely to get the best out of his actors on set.
But soon, Green would have trouble adapting to a working wife while he stayed at home with the kids. She filed for divorce because he wanted her to stay at home Getty Images In August , Fox filed for divorce from Green and cited irreconcilable differences, according to Us Weekly who also revealed that the couple had been separated for months.
While there were no clear reasons at the time, soon friends would reveal to People that the issue was Fox's career. Before they filed for divorce, they had disagreements about this situation. However, Fox and Green would continue to be photographed together and were dedicated to maintaining a stable home life for their two sons.
Perhaps a bit too stable. A surprise pregnancy brought them back together Getty Images In April , a supposedly single Fox surprised the entertainment world by announcing she was pregnant with her third baby. And for a brief while, she wouldn't reveal the father, which left Hollywood guessing even though the answer turned out to be pretty obvious. Revenge of the Fallen. And that sparked in me an interest in really exposing this sort of thing, because I realized I have access to things I shouldn't have access to because of what I do for a living.
Instead, she'd become part owner of a famous lingerie company, which is kind of like informing the world about Ancient Astronauts. Out of the Shadows failed to perform at the box office and essentially put an end to the reboot franchise , Fox continued to be the breadwinner at home by pivoting her career towards a new line of work that surprisingly didn't involve proving that the pyramids were secret alien batteries, or whatever. In , she became the body and brains behind Frederick's of Hollywood as part owner and creative consultant for the lingerie brand.
Which apparently is an act of rebellion because she got over preparing for the Antichrist? We can't keep up with her either. I had never seen crotchless panties and I had no need for them at the time, but I was like, 'Yes! I want these because my family would be horrified.
They're determined to stick it out Getty Images In a interview with People , Green made it clear that the couple's in it for the long haul. But I don't want to go anywhere and she doesn't, you know? So we stick it out.
After three boys, the two are hoping to get a girl in the mix. But it's good to hear Fox and Green are making it work and finding ways to balance work with a family that seems to be growing by the minute.
