They have been together for 15 years now, but Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox were almost not an item.
While on Barstool Sports “KFC Radio” podcast, the “BH90210” star recalled about when he first met Fox and how he initially turned her down.
“She was doing ‘Hope and Faith’ at the time here in New York with Kelly Ripa and Faith Ford, and I came and did an episode of it,” Green said. “I met Megan on that, and she was really young. And I was like, ‘This isn’t this. This can’t f**king happen. This isn’t going to happen, no way.’ And so I left and she was just really persistent — and thank God.”
Green added that he “had just gotten out of a relationship” and wasn’t ready for another once since he planned to “play the field for a little while.”
The actor said that he “kept pushing” Megan away, but when she started to date other people, he knew he messed up.
“That’s when I realized I was, like, ‘F**k, I must be really into this situation … the thought of that kills me.’ And … we’ve been together now for 15 years,” he explained. “You know, it’s funny because you talk about Megan now because you know her after all of that. But you know, this was when I met her — [she] was pre-‘Transformers’. It was pre- all that.”
The two started dating in 2004 before getting engaged in 2006. They called off the engagement in 2009, but reconciled before getting married in 2010. They share three boys together.
