Megan Fox has admitted she didn’t expect to walk right into her ‘soulmate’ when she met her boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.
The Hollywood couple have been dating since 2020 after meeting on the set of Midnight In the Switchgrass, and the loved up pair have opened up on their unexpected romance for what British GQ says is their first magazine shoot as a couple.
Appearing on the cover of British GQ Style’s Autumn/Winter 2021 issue, Megan – who has stripped off for the shoot – said: ‘I was] definitely open [to] love, but I did not anticipate walking right into my soulmate like that.
‘I was obviously over the way I had been living, and those paths lined up, those doors opened. It was [as if] all the obstacles that had kept us apart all those years ]had been removed] and we were able to finally intersect.’
And Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, told the publication: ‘I came from broken homes and I watched love never work. Then I grew up where in pop culture they don’t even make romantic movies any more. It hurts my soul that I wasted 30 years of my life not having any desire.’
Fox, who has three kids with her ex-husband and 90210 star Brian Austin Green, and MGK made their relationship Instagram official in July 2020.
The actress has described herself as an ‘unusual person’, and told the magazine that meeting Kelly was like ‘meeting your own soul’s reflection’.
She explained: ‘You know, famously, like, I’m an unusual person. And I had buried a lot of that because it didn’t have a place to live.
‘That’s something that, meeting him, it’s like meeting your own soul’s reflection. I recognise so much of myself in him, and vice versa, and that locked-up part of me that I had put away.
‘I’d always felt like there was that thing missing, that I’d given up on, that you’re always seeking. But then you meet the person that completes that for you and you’re like, “Oh, this is what my heart was searching for. That’s what that beacon was this whole time.” ‘
The musician in turn credited her for helping him with trauma from his own past..
He said: ‘She’s helped me realise that you can’t bury trauma. No one knows anything about me. They don’t know how deep the rabbit hole goes with my childhood and with everything that my body has stored in itself.’
Reflecting on their romance, Kelly insisted their romance isn’t ‘perfect’, instead describing it as a blend of ‘ecstasy and agony’.
He added: ‘It should be light, but also we go to hell with each other. It’s ecstasy and agony for sure… I don’t want people to think anything’s perfect with us. I didn’t say it was the darkest fairy tale for no reason.’
