Megan Fox’s first boyfriend tells all to News of The World

Megan Fox’s first boyfriend from her hometown of Port St. Lucie, Florida, told News of The World about his teenage romance with Fox, 22, before she moved to Hollywood to become a big star. It’s a typical first love kind of story, with Fox sneaking out to see him and asking him to move to LA with her.

According to Ben Leahy, a 24 year-old firefighter in Vero Beach, Florida, he dated Megan for three years until she moved away to pursue her dream of acting in 2003 at the age of 17. He said she was into fishing, surfing, and being one of the guys but that she also had a wild side and loved sexy times. According to Ben, he was the one who broke it off after Megan landed her first big part, but it sounds like they were over at that point anyway.

This is written in the sensational style that News of The World uses, but there aren’t many salacious details. Ben does say he finds Megan’s story that she had an affair with a Russian stripper named Nikita completely plausible, though, and said that Megan always had a thing for women, particularly Angelina Jolie:

“Megan loved looking at women’s bodies.

“She just had no inhibitions and made no bones about the fact she liked to fantasise about being with a woman.

“There were many times she would look at magazines for hours pointing out which actresses she thought were hot. Angelina Jolie was high up on her list.

“She would say: ‘Look at her body Ben it’s gorgeous don’t you think?’

“She just loved women who were not conventionally pretty and looked like they were into anything. Because that’s what Megan was like…

“So I am not in the slightest bit shocked one of the first people she slept with after I had ended our relationship was a woman.”…

While most girls are into make-up and shoes, Megan was just a total rebel who loved to hang out with the boys and luckily her favourite boy was me.

“Megan and I spent every minute together and she loved doing anything and everything with me. We used to go fishing and surfing, total boys things which Megan loved.

“But while she was a total tomboy Megan also knew how to drive me wild to using her female charms. She would just have to look at me with those huge eyes and tell me she loved me and my heart would just leap…

And as the pair grew older Ben tells how he got to see more and more of Megan’s body when she would creep out late at night to be with the boy she loved.

Ben told the News Of The World: “Megan started to really rebel against her parents who were very strict.

“She would have these huge arguments, then call me to say she had run away. And then when she was feeling really naughty on a few occasions she told me to come to the house late at night.

“And while her parents were sleeping she would order me to stack cookie boxes up to her window so she could climb down from her bedroom window and spend a few hours with me.

“We had some amazing nights laying under the stars. She would giggle and shriek with laughter knowing that while her parents were in bed she was outside doing all sorts with me.

“Which was totally up Megan’s street because she loved doing anything which was naughty.

“I was Megan’s first love and she was mine so those times were extra special as we were doing things together we had never done before.”

But of course it was not to be. Megan moved to Hollywood and started on her path to stardom, while Ben was content to stay in Florida, fish and work as a firefighter. She eventually cheated on him with 7th Heaven star David Gallagher:

And not long after Megan had landed her first small part alongside LINDSAY LOHAN in Confessions of a Teenage drama Queen Ben knew their days as a couple were numbered.

He said: “I always knew Megan was going to be a big star. She just had this aura around her and this incredible sexy irresistible quality which I knew would make her famous…

“So suddenly Megan’s new world began to sound like it was on a different planet to me and I knew I would not fit in and never wanted to anyway.

“As the weeks went by Megan seemed to be becoming more and more obsessed with all that Hollywood had to offer and I could sense she was drifting away from me.”

But the final straw for Ben came when he discovered Megan had started to spend more time with US soap actor David Gallagher.

“All of a sudden all Megan talked about was David this, David that,” says Ben…

“Megan was hard to control when she lived near by, but thousands of miles away amongst all these rich actors I did not stand a chance.

“And so I called her and told her I thought it was best we went our separate ways. Megan begged me not to end it but even she must have known deep down we were never going to last.

“Our worlds had gone in such totally different directions.

“We both cried but still today I know I made the right decision.

“As a firefighter I would never have been able to afford to live in Los Angeles and I am sure as hell not the kind of man who would ever have been content to live off her money. I have way too much pride for that.

“So now I just am content to keep on fishing and make do with seeing Megan on the big screen. And at the end of the day I am just so proud of all she has achieved.”

[News of The World]

That story kind of humanizes oversexed Megan for me. She portrays herself as this wanton woman, but she’s been with her fiance, Brian Austin Green, for four years and despite breakup rumors they’re still going strong. Fox is generally said to be a pain in the ass, but Green has stuck with her and it sounds like she’s perfectly content with monogamy. She even said that she’d rather stay home and have sex with him than go out. I still think the Nikita stripper story is made up, though.

Didn’t she look better with her natural nose? She’s a little too cookie cutter now.

    someone’s lips look a helluva lot more plumper

  2. Ella says:

    she looked really pretty in that first picture. It looks like she dropped some weight, got a nose job, got a boob job(can’t really tell from the picture, but from others it is painfully obvious)…

    Now she looks incredibly fake to me, like a bratz doll.

    She was so pretty before, why was she so insecure?

  3. Nouvel says:

    He seems like a nice guy… but she loves women. She will def be in a relationship with a woman next and that will be the love of her life like Linds.. watch !! She is serioulsy probably the most beautiful woman in Hollywood other than Angelina.. geeezz

  4. Kay says:

    In all her pictures she’s either blowing a kiss or has that dumb empty stare with her tognue poking out….

  5. ses says:

    ah ha ha, the best part of this story was when News of the World called Simon from 7th Hev a “US soap star.” I’d rather fish with Ben any day than “date” someone who looked like a child in the Village of the Damned for his entire youth.

  6. Dee says:

    Glad people see what I see. Thought they were gonna scream “oh she was young and everyone’s body and face change as they mature”. Her nose, the thinning of the face (natural part of maturing) but the nose and the lips and I never thought it appeared she had breast augmentation, but those two things and make-up and money can do wonders. Really thought she was gorgeous until lately, she’s looking more BRATZY as someone termed her look.

  7. Kaiser says:

    Nose job, lip injections and colored contacts.

    Weird, because she was lovely before. There can only be one La Jolie!

  8. Codzilla says:

    Ella: You’re right! She looks just like a Bratz Doll. Lacquered up and over-plucked. Zero natural charm left.

  9. Vannuccia says:

    I always knew she’s had a lot of work done, but I never knew the colour of her eyes were fake too! She was definitely prettier before. She looks like she’s made of wax now.

    I’m surprised she hasn’t had any dermabrasion done on her cheeks though.. she always has awful pockmarks on her face (made worse by all that foundation she wears).

  10. ally says:

    wow, how convenient that this guy gave an interview about her right after her Maxim article which a lot of people didn’t believe.Yeah, she’s such a bad girl!
    her lips look quite plump in the old picture, she’s smiling so it’s normal they look thin…if she had a plastic surgery of some sort that doctor is awesome :D

  11. dumdee says:

    kaiser: if im not mistaken, angelina jolie had a nose job too.

    megan stills looks gorgeous but maybe she should’ve kept it more natural

  12. Roma says:

    Seriously, David Gallagher?

  13. anony says:

    She was pretty before now she DOES look like a Bratz doll. Classic.

    Notice her teeth too- they’re veneers. Those tend to make the lips stick out a little. Why is it some actresses cannot seem to close their mouths? It’s curious.

    Ps- Just love the stacking ‘cookie boxes’ REALLY? they didn’t collapse under the weight of a person? Stacked COOKIE boxes? So random. I seriously doubt that.

  14. Boot says:

    A big star? I have never heard of her until I visited Celebitchy. Movies? Soap operas? Why does her tongue always have to show wetly, like it’s too big for her to keep between her teeth. Mouth always open, jammy lips apart. She’s probably cute, but all the trying-to-be-sexy stuff only detracts from her prettiness.

  15. spoonman says:

    Her nose was a train wreck and the breast needed a lift to make it in Hollywood-kudos to Megan for doing what it takes to fix up these minor imperfections!!!

    This guy sounds like the high school football star that will grow old in a small town-so out of her league!

    MFox is getting hotter by the minute. Now if she will just dump the wimp from 90210 she can move on to super stardom. I’m sure with her looks she could land the perfect Hollywood beefcake to help further her career-hey whatever it takes!

    If Angie Jolie was still single I’m sure she would have called her up and bagged this closet lesbo!

  16. JoGirl says:

    I think she and la Jolie went to the same rhinoplasty doctor. Their noses appear to have been stamped out of the same mold!

  17. Jess Doherty says:

    Her new nose looks better. The first one is too wide.

  18. She'sAFake says:

    Re: the fake lips -

    When Megan Fox was fliming a movie in Canada this past spring they had to halt production for a few days while they waited for the swelling in her lips to go down because she’d gone overboard with the collagen injections. They had no continuity because one day her lips were flat and the next day her lips were 3 times their previous size.

    Also, anyone who doesn’t realize how she’s copied, make that STOLEN, multipl aspects of Angelina Jolie’s life is a moron. Reading that she spent her late teens fantasizing about Jolie ain’t exactly a shocker. The difference between Jolie and Fox is the difference between the Mona Lisa and color-by-number watercolors.

  19. She'sAFake says:

    Jolie hasn’t had a nose job. TMZ recently had some pictures of Jolie at 16 – she had the same nose then she has now. Plus, if you look at the professional photoshoots they thin her nose quite a bit with Photoshop. If you take one professional pic and one candid from the same time frame and compare them you’ll see her nose is different in the professional photos than the candids. Believe me – I’ve spent some time comparing them! :D

  20. Jaded Envy says:

    I’d love to be as beautiful as either of them, of course, but my favorite description of Megan Fox is, “. . . she’s the poor man’s Angelina Jolie.”

    She just doesn’t have that special “it” quality and not nearly as talented as AJ, either.

  21. R7 says:

    “The difference between Jolie and Fox is the difference between the Mona Lisa and color-by-number watercolors”
    That´s so right!

  22. Curio says:

    Angelina in her teens was exotic and breathtaking. Megan in that pic above with the guy looks pretty, only pretty and that´s all. Now she looks like a doll, a fake one.

  23. Codzilla says:

    While I’m not Angelina’s biggest fan, I absolutely agree that she’s in a different sphere of talent and beauty than Megan Fox. The latter seems packaged, and in all honesty, not very intelligent.

  24. Judi says:

    Right – because a firefighter, or even an Amer guy, talks like this. They think we’re stupid?
    M would look a thousand times better if she’d gain 10 pounds. Her facial contours are really pronounced and look harsh. Yes, I agree she needs some surface work. Her skin’s starting to look like the lunar surface.

  25. GhettoLips says:

    Here’s a before and after on both the nose job and the lip collagen.

  26. GhettoLips says:

    Yet another look at the pre-nose job/pre-lip enhancement face

  27. Amee says:

    wow! she looks so different in that first picture! i did’nt believe all those stories about her having surgery but after seeing that…

  28. Kylie says:

    Why was she so insecure? Why did she get all that plastic surgery?

    Because everyone wants to pick her a part. Every little thing about her. That’s why she’s insecure.

    I mean, look at just about every comment on this story.

  29. Dave says:

    I honestly love her attitude; I also doubt that she’s insecure she just enjoys being loved by everyone.

  30. Angela says:

    I read that Megan Fox really wants to be the “next Angelina” and made up the whole lesbian thing. The whole “first boyfriend” and “loved womens bodies” thing was probably something her publicist made up to make her seem more like Jolie. What happened to originality!

  31. lisa says:

    its always girls like Fox who share their whole sex lives with the world and then complain about being treated as sex objects. the guy in the article sounds like he’s making up the story

  32. Christina X says:

    Kylie, please.

    There’s insecurity and then there’s blatant attention whoring, and she wades into this category and has several of times.

    “Picking her apart”? Cry me a river. The comments about Megan Fox are a drop in the bucket compared to the comments on other celebrities who deserve less criticism than she does.

    She uses her body for publicity, and I think the media needs to stop encouraging bimbos of Megan Fox’s ilk. She has an unfair advantage over a lot of women because of her body. Forgive me for not sympathizing for her.

    Boo hoo, poor Megan Fox and her big mouth and nice body that she flaunts knowingly.

    That being said, for as many members on where who feel generally the same as I do about Megs, I don’t want to hear jack shit about her popularity, because as long as there are horny men, she’ll always have her f-king consumers until she stops being a novelty.

    The world’s smallest violin strums for Megan Fox.

  33. Megan Fox is such a hottie. Nerds love her. Women are jealous of her. Being a fan, I’m glad that she’s doing well in Hollywood right now.

    It’s kinda sad that David lost her as a girlfriend.. I really feel for him. Must have been kinda hard to take.

  34. André says:

    People people people! Don’t you guys see the real issue here? She dated David Gallagher! WTF??? David “I’m a powder white zombie retard who can’t act for shit” Gallagher!!! If that guy can date girls like her, then I can…. OK wait! He is relatively “famous” and rich… But still! David Gallagher!!! …Although her standards can’t be too high cause I know she dated Brian Austin Green, Shia LaBeouf and now I found out about David Gallagher! Those guys looks like trolls! Who’s next? That gay dude from N’Sync?

  35. Tiffany says:

    ppl saying ppl jealous of her. ya’ll some bitch asses. why would anyone be jealous of someone who was average looking before and had tons of surgery to make herself look hot? this girl was nothing special without her surgery. i saw all her pics. no one would even be talking about her if she didnt have nose job, lip injections, breast implants, and wear a ton of hooker makeup. i can give her credit though for fooling ya’ll; she’s smart and ingenious.

  36. Tiffany says:

    Andre, Andre: stop you’re embarassing yourself.

  37. Splsi says:

    seem like a sad story, i would know how Ben would feel losing Megan,i lost a girl that i loved, we were going out for 2 and a half year, if Megan really loved Ben then i wouldn’t think she would cheat on him and plus why throw it all away for?

  38. ivy says:

    im sorry but angelina will be my first and my last! There will never be another actress that will come close to her beauty,talents,style,and nobility. Angelina is the total package! no wonder brad dumped that sore loser jen i mean look what she has to comepete with. Which is why women like jen get nose jobs to look like angelina too! can you blame them. I am exotic and model and even i would trade my looks for angelina or megan fox(without the crators though) but hey…can you knock someone for wanting to look better? no! i would do the same thing. and the “first boyfriend” story sounds like a lot of bs made by her publicist! people do need to stop copying other ppls storys and trying to be and look like them. perhaps megan should change her hair color so she wont look like angie so much. watever she’s hot and i would do her and im a girl. Only thing that does annoy me though is the copycat style of hers and the fact she never keeps her damn mouth closed! especially now after her lip injections….

  39. sailor says:

    people keep dissin surgery and saying their can b only one angelina j, however she had rhinoplasty on her nose to, lol

  40. Navi says:

    She says she was over-sexualized as a child and that’s why she’s a slut (not her word) now.

    I don’t know what she means by that and I don’t want to.

    People who get plastic surgery suffer from low self-esteem, and 80% of the time (for boob jobs) the recipient also suffers from depression.

    I think she had a hard life growing up. Somebody (*coughs* her parents) must have caused her to feel inadequate.

    Don’t hate her for it, it’s not her fault. Like it or not the sh*t you grow up with sticks with you for the rest of your life.

    If it makes the haters feel any better, she probably hates herself.

    ….yeah, I didn’t think it would.

  41. lola says:

    her eyes arent fake didint u guys see her baby pics???

  42. Bella says:

    Ugh, I hate her. She needs to learn how to shut up with that attitude of hers. She may be good looking, but the stuff that comes out of her mouth sure takes the attention away from it. “Oooh, I’m oozing sexiness, I can’t help it, someone please stop me.” …Please.

  43. me says:

  44. amethsyt says:

    i know a guy who would pay $22,000 just to sleep with megan fox.By the way , i talk to her on myspace.i am a female ,no homo

  45. Layla says:

    Megan Fox doesnt have a myspace, she said it herself, so you’re talking to a fake.

    and furthermore, it bothers me that she got all this surgery and played it off like she was born that way. i understand she may be insecure, but there are girls out there who are beating themselves up because they dont look like megan fox. Megan fox doesnt even look like megan fox!!!! seriously, take away the makeup, the fake eyelashes, the nose job, lip injections and boobs. and what do you have? A HUMAN BEING!!

  46. fox WHO?! says:

    come on people!
    how can a walking wax bimbo like fox be subject to all this discussion?! i mean how is she even this famous in the first place? just goes to show what airheads with fake boobs,lips,noses…and god knows what more can achieve in this superficial time! what has the world come to?
    who CANT rebuild themselves and then sell their bodies like a prostitute on tv just to play with the animal instincts of young boys?!
    DISGUSTING really! X-S

  47. Mel says:

    wow so many jealous people with nothin better to do but hate on Megan Fox…… get a life!! if half u could look like her u wouldnt be f’n complaining… envy is such a bitch and jealousy is a curse kinda makes me sick that some females on this earth can not obviously handle women that are better looking then them.

  48. OP says:

    I really find this funny that no one has pointed this out already. But her ex is saying that one of the first people she slept with was with a woman after they broke up. Then goes on to say the she cheated on him with David Gallagher.

    Buwhahahaha….didn’t she just say that she has only slept with TWO MEN! What the woman and David didn’t count? (If it were only them, who know how many other people)LOL.

    I gave her the benefit of the doubt because I myself have only been with one man (hey we do exist) and I’m considered very attractive, but in the back of my mind I doubted her words.

    I can not wait until the media catches on to this!

  49. Me says:

    A rebel? HAHAHA what bullshit.

  50. bill says:

    If Megan was so beautiful naturally, she would had been a very famous top model. It says in the article that soon after sleeping with David Gallagher, she landed her BIG role. David’s connections surely helped her land this Big role. Any beautiful woman does not need so much makeup. Makeup is used to enhance natural beauty not make you look like a waxy, fake doll. Plus, her lips are fake. If you look at old pictures of her you will see that her lips are very hin, even without smiling. her teeth also used to be much longer in the front. She is an actress and I think that she wants to be fake in front of the camera. her whole life is just an act. I cant believe how people are just obsessed with her. If she was that hot and beautiful then why was she not that famous in her high school with boys? and why didnt she become a super model? and why would men not faint when they saw her in the street? If she was that naturally beautiful then she surely could not have gone to a regular high school because everybody would have been going crazy there and would have stlaked her at her home. What you see of her in the media is a fake image of a pretty girl who did everything she could to fit into the Hollywood world. She had a lot of enhancements done to her face, without them she would have just been a regular pretty girl.

  51. foxxxxxxx says:

    Megan Fox is 1000000000 times prettier than angelina jolie, by far.. angelina jolie looks like a CRACKHEAD megan looks alot more fresh shes amazing and she was beautiful without the surgery, from pictures of her in high school idk why she got the surgerys because i dont think she needed them but everyone has their own insecurities stfu she can do whtever she wants, stop being jealous <333 mwahhhhh

  52. rosa says:

    Nice story!! I love that..And it also sad that all about with her first Bf..Very nice to read and now how they different..I wonder that does megan still loves her first BF..He seems very nice..

  53. Ole says:

    this story is so bullshit…her whole life is bullshit,,,all fabricated crap.

  54. alecia moore says:

  55. davos says:

    Nice story. Sounds like a great guy.

  56. KANDI says:

    Too many to count who have had nose reduction all you have to do is look at old photos but they sad thing is when everyone tries to look alike or like posh spice not being mean but she is allways stuffing herself into dresses and trying too hard to be sexy and could be so much better looking if she did’ nt wear just trying too hard and caking on the make up they need a big mirror but oh well but yes it is so silly funny when they are trying to be sexy and yes many have had nose work

  57. KANDI says:

    the differnce is not being mean if someone is beautiful great but people will allways say stuff good or bad a good example is donald trump he interjects alot he should be a commentator cuz looks like he loves to talk poor rosie o donnel all she did was call him out on not being a authority on morality and he had a lil cow patty
