Fox Reflects on ‘Unfulfilling’ Marriage to Brian Austin Green: ‘I Was Young’

Megan Fox is reflecting on her history. The actress opens up about her complicated views on marriage and past relationship with Brian

Austin Green on the new episode of Call Her Daddy.

Speaking with host Alex Cooper, Fox first addresses her parents’ split when she was a child and her mother’s subsequent marriage to another man. Fox claims that her stepfather was “emotionally and mentally and verbally very abusive,” adding that she was also affected “very deeply” by her mother’s apparent struggles with depression.

“The messaging that I received is that men and marriage in particular… keep you from being able to express your creativity or express your unique desires,” Fox says. “It’s an oppressive experience to be in a relationship, or to be in love, or to be married. In particular, being married. Like, when I say the word ‘being married’ I feel my chakras tighten up. I feel my back, like, get tight, even though I was married for a long time.”

Fox and Green were first linked in 2004 and went on to tie the knot in 2010. The went their separate ways for good in 2020 and finalized their divorce in early 2022. Together, the former couple shares three sons: Noah, 10, Bodhi, 9, and Journey, 6. Green also has a 21-year-old son, Kassius, from a previous relationship.
