Back in 2004, a little-known actress named Megan Fox met former teen heartthrob Brian Austin Green on the set of the sitcom “Hope & Faith,” where they were both guest-starring. It was the start of a love affair that resulted in a secret wedding last Thursday in Hawaii.
After dating for two years, despite a 12-year age difference, the pair got engaged in November 2006 . They lived together, along with a potbellied pig, dogs, two cats, two birds and a squirrel.
In 2008, Green told TV Guide that they had to make room in their busy work schedules to focus on their relationship. At the time, Fox was an up-and-coming sex symbol and the female lead in “Transformers,” while Green was busy working on the TV series “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”
“We’ve lived together for three years. We have tattoos of each other’s names,” he said in an interview, adding that he also wouldn’t mind having children with his lady. “I would love more kids. Right now, our biggest problem is rescuing pets from pet stores.”
Despite a brief breakup in early 2009, the pair got back together and rekindled their flame later that year. Fox would continue to be busy with her career, working on flicks like “Jonah Hex” and “Jennifer’s Body” and continuing to say outlandish things in interviews. She also made sure to talk about her preference for older men like Green. She once noted that she loves Green because “he’s a man. He has an ego.”
Shortly after Fox left the “Transformers” franchise and just before the release of “Jonah Hex,” she and Green announced that they had gotten engaged again on June 1 in Hawaii.
And while Fox would insist that it was “really not a re-engagement” because their 2006 commitment still held, she did throw off the press by noting hat it would be “years” before she walked down the aisle with Green. “I’m going to be 44 when I get married!” Apparently in Fox’s world, “years” is really only a matter of weeks, and “44″ means 24.
While we don’t know much about the wedding other than it took place at the Four Seasons Resort on Hawaii’s Big Island and only about half a dozen people were in attendance. It is the first marriage for both. Green has an 8-year-old son, Kassius, from a previous relationship with actress Vanessa Marcil. Kassius gave away his dad at the wedding.
If you were as famous as Megan and Brian, would you have a secret wedding or a huge, publicized bash? Talk about it in the comments.
