Megan Fox knew Machine Gun Kelly was her soulmate the first time they met

Last week, the Washington Post did a story called “The Megan Fox renaissance is here. It’s long overdue.” It’s just a promotional interview with Fox as she hypes her latest film, ‘Til Death. But it brought up an interesting point: are we seeing a Megan Fox renaissance? We certainly are in her personal life – it seems like a weight has been lifted from her shoulders now that she’s finally done with Brian Austin Green. She seems incredibly happy with Machine Gun Kelly, and as she discusses in this piece, she’s convinced that they’re once-in-a-lifetime soulmates. Professionally, her career isn’t quite up to “renaissance” level, but I’ll buy that she has more work on her plate these days. Some highlights from the interview:

She knew she would have a creative renaissance in her 30s. It was marked in her natal chart. As a strong follower of astrology, Fox claims the timing of her work, love and fame was written in the stars. “I believe that there’s a purpose and a reason for that,” she says with certainty. Everybody in her life would say she’s spiritual to the point “where it might annoy certain people,” she says, candidly. Fox, 35, typically begins her day with tarot cards and reading her horoscope. Before the pandemic, she integrated daily deep visualization and shamanic meditation. On the June afternoon when we speak, she’s even been planning rituals to harness the power of the looming solar eclipse.

She loves horror movies: “‘Jennifer’s Body’ is iconic, and I love that movie. I didn’t want to do that movie an injustice by doing something that was similar but not as good. Critically everyone s— on [Jennifer’s Body]. This movie is art, but when it came out, nobody was saying that.”

She’s more than a shallow succubus: “I think there has been a pervasive perception of me as a shallow succubus, if that makes any sense, for at least the first decade of my career. And then that started to change more recently as people revisited some of my interviews, listened to me speak and started to see me in a different way.”

The bad years: “I was so lost and trying to understand, like, how am I supposed to feel value or find purpose in this horrendous, patriarchal, misogynistic hell that was Hollywood at the time? Because I had already been speaking out against it and everyone, including other women, received me in a very negative way for doing it.”

Exiling herself from Hollywood for a time to have children: “That kind of saved me honestly,” Fox said of having children. “I needed an escape.”

Reagan on New Girl was the role the one closest to her personality. “People were surprised that I was funny at all. More than being overlooked for my ability to handle comedy sometimes, I’ve always been surprised by how easy it was for people to overlook that I’m relatively intelligent. I was like, how does that get so lost when there’s ridiculous amounts of material that can educate you otherwise?”

She knew that eventually people would see that she had been wronged by the industry: “When I was fighting, even back then I felt like I was connected to Joan of Arc and all of these women who’ve been persecuted all throughout time. I was like, ‘I’m aligned with every woman that’s ever gone through this since the beginning of f—ing history.’”

Meeting Machine Gun Kelly: On the set of “Midnight in the Switchgrass,” Fox and Kelly only worked together for two days. Sure, she knew his name and that he “was a tall, blond tattooed rapper,” but she didn’t expect such a “magical” connection. “The first time I looked into his eyes, I was like . . . “I know you. I have known you so many times, in so many different forms, in so many different lives.” She “wasn’t expecting it’d be like, ‘God, you are my soul mate,’ instantly.”

Towards the end of the interview, she lightly pitched herself for a comic-book movie as well, sounding like she would be fine going to DC or Marvel. Many years ago, she would have been considered for that kind of thing, but I’m not sure if she would be now. But who knows, stranger things have happened. As for the other stuff… I also think going away and having babies allowed her to get some distance from the toxic elements in Hollywood, and it let Hollywood get some distance from Megan. There’s no reason why she shouldn’t have a career renaissance, honestly. While she’s not some world-class actress, she’s pretty and watchable and she should be able to get a TV show or something like that. Just like Joan d’Arc!

    LOL… NEXT

  2. Stef says:

    Always liked her and thought she was brave for speaking out about the misogyny she was experiencing. Hope she gets the comeback she deserves.

    • DuchessL says:

      Same here. I always thought she was being picked on because she’s beautiful, and people were jealous, and what she was saying didnt reach people because her roles were not serious enough. I always thought she willingly took more risks than others when she was answering interviews questions. I thought that was spontaneous, naive or sometimes even purposely scandalous at the time, but I think she was really honest and true to herself all the way, which is a rare quality in this day and time.

      • Stef says:

        Well said, completely agree with you.

      • questions says:

        I don’t think she’s dumb, as evidenced by her recent interviews, but there were a couple of early interviews where she talked about the smell of farts. I can sort of see why she was received a certain way, regardless of how she looks. Even if she looked like Janet Reno and held a Phd from Harvard, I feel those types of interviews don’t serve anyone well (instead, we’d be wondering why a Phd from Harvard isn’t more articulate). Sometimes when beautiful people are mocked, it might be because one of them actually said something in isolation that could be construed as a little dumb.

    She was soooo good in New Girls. By the time she guest starred, I was over Zoey Deschanel. The rest of the cast kept me watching tho. And I just wanted Megan to stay forever as Reagan. I don’t remember this role as much, but she was also pretty funny in “This is 40″

  4. Lucy says:

    I’m glad she’s in a better place and I truly hope she does find good job opportunities. That being said, everything about her relationship seems so…staged and thirsty. Nothing against him either, but it’s all too much.

  5. Case says:

    I just watched Jennifer’s Body last year and really loved it. I’m glad it’s finally getting the love and attention it deserves in recent years!

    • LaUnicaAngelina says:

      Jennifer’s Body was fantastic and I never understood why it wasn’t appreciated. I like Megan and she looks happy.

  6. KMAC says:

    Love her and want her to have big success! Hollywood squashed her when she tried to speak out against the misogyny. Glad we are in a little different place now where she can have a comeback.

  7. faithmobile says:

    “Just like Joan D’Ark” LOL Kaiser! She sounds like a teenager but as long as she is free from that d-bag ex I’m happy for her. I never thought I’d get married and then in my thirties I met someone and when I heard his voice-I knew! We both knew. So I believe her when she says this is her guy.

    • Lyds says:

      I completely agree that she does sound a bit “me-centric” and teen-like in this interview, but I also find that to be the case with people who possess extreme beauty: they’re told their whole lives that they’re special, and the inbuilt narcissism and self-importance is hard to shake.

      That said, I’ve always enjoyed her, and actually remember balking when a friend at the time criticized her for looking like a sex-doll. She was always interesting to me in her interviews and I could tell that she was self-aware and intelligent. Her calling-out the powerful men at the time made so much sense and I feel like I blocked out the backlash she got and just figured she disappeared to have babies, which wasn’t far from the truth. She’s no Meryl or even a Jennifer Lawrence, but she’s fun so I’m all for this Megainssance!

  8. Sam the Pink says:

    This breakup is going to absolutely epic, isn’t it? Can we just say that now?

  9. B says:

    She’s not talented enough for a real career renaissance, tbh. She could get a decent tv show, but I don’t see her landing lead roles in major films.

  10. Eleonor says:

    I hope she has a renaissance.

  11. questions says:

    What is a soulmate? That’s where my mind went when I saw the title of this post.

  12. Robyn says:

    I can’t help but love her. And I love them together. She looks incredible and her outfits have been amazing. The icon we deserve.

  13. observer says:

    (disclaimer: i actually support megan if not MGK because of how the media treated her. that said…)

    i really want to be a fly on the wall when these two are alone having ‘deep’ soulmate discussions

  14. Sigmund says:

    Eh, I’d be happy if she had a comeback. She didn’t deserve the sh*t she got before. She was right to call out Michael Bay for his misogyny. And she paid for it. Yeah, she seems a little out of touch here, but a lot of celebrities do.

  15. Passerby says:

    Try hard Wish version of Angelina Jolie.

  16. Bread and Circuses says:

    It is so great to see her seeming honestly happy.

    It’s like that line in Thelma and Louise, “Ah honey, I’m so happy you finally got some good loving.”
