Megan Fox is very passionate about her new movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so fans were left very shocked and disappointed when the actress missed out on the Beijing, China, premiere during the Chinese launch of the film.
What caused Fox to miss an appearance? Apparently, the beauty had been suffering from a skin allergy that forced her to skip the event and stay at the hotel on Sunday evening.
The news was even more surprising because the Jennifer’s Body actress had appeared healthy when she attended the press conference in the Shangri-La Hotel in Beijing early on Sunday morning. Fox attended the conference alongside fellow cast member William Fichtner, producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore, The Hollywood Reporter reported.
It was at the conference that Fox remarked how she had opened the windows in her hotel room and how beautiful she thought the view of Beijing was. So, how did Fox develop a bad skin allergy in just a few hours? There was mass speculation in the Chinese media that her allergy could be blamed on the terrible pollution in the city. However, the star’s camp has denied these claims.
“She had an allergic reaction but not because of the pollution,” a spokeswoman for the actress told The Hollywood Reporter.
While we’re sure fans were disappointed, they did get a replacement at the premiere because Chinese actress Fan Bingbing attended the event instead.
We hope Fox makes a speedy recovery and that there’s nothing too serious with regard to her skin allergy!
