Megan Fox’s candor is truly one of her best qualities. On Thursday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, she opened up about past romances and her most spiteful acts against her husband, Brian Austin Green, during a round of “Plead the Fifth.” What she had to say was illuminating, to say the least.
In the clip, when Cohen asks Fox about a 2011 Details magazine interview wherein Shia LaBeouf said the pair had an on-set romance while filming Transformers, she said, “I mean, I would confirm that it was romantic. I love him. I have never been really quiet about that. I love him.” She said it was basically just an on-set romance.
This is the first time Fox has publicly talked about romance with LaBeouf. Per People, LaBeouf told Details in 2011, “Look, you’re on the set for six months, with someone who’s rooting to be attracted to you, and you’re rooting to be attracted to them. I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing.”
Meanwhile, Fox also confessed to something related to her current relationship during her Thursday appearance on Cohen’s show. He asked her about a 2009 interview with Rolling Stone, wherein she said she had “destroyed the house” during arguments with her husband.
“I think I was being a little… that was hyperbole a little bit,” she said. “I did one time get really angry at him and wrote in Sharpie a bunch of Nietzsche poems on his wall.”
Whoops. Fox and Green have long been open about their marital struggles, including when she filed for divorce in 2015 before the pair announced that they were having a third child together and then reconciled one year later. All told, Sharpie marker on the wall is probably not the worst thing that’s happened over the course of their relationship, but it does sound dramatic in a game show format like “Plead the Fifth.”
As Cohen noted at the end of the game, Fox didn’t refuse to answer a single question he asked her, which is frankly admirable.
