Megan Fox made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, where she confessed that she has some deep-seated fears about getting older.

"When you're young, that sounds so old," Fox, who celebrates her 30th birthday in May, told DeGeneres. "When you're in high school or even when you're in your early 20s, it still sounds like, 'By the time I'm 30, I should just give up.' What's the point of going on at that age?"

She continued, "And then you turn 30 — I'm turning 30 later this year — you don't feel any older at all."

That's when things got uncomfortable. DeGeneres, eager to offer her take, joined the conversation.

"I agree with you," DeGeneres said. "Because when I was younger, I would think somebody 50, 60 years old was, you know, just like..."

"In a hospice?" Fox interjected.

Ouch. Because what Fox apparently failed to realize is that DeGeneres is 58.

"I'm just saying!" Fox quickly added, trying to save face. "When you're young, that's what you think."

Luckily, DeGeneres, veteran talk show host that she is, took the unintended insult in stride and defused the seriously awkward moment.

"I wouldn't go that far," she said, "but certainly close to going to a hospice, yes."
