Megan Fox, well-known for her roles in Transformers and Jennifer's Body, has opened up about her devastating miscarriage in her newly released book of poetry, Pretty Boys Are Poisonous. The actress, 37, and her fiancé, Machine Gun Kelly (also known as Colson Baker), have been in an on-again/off-again relationship since 2020. In the book, Megan shares heart-wrenching excerpts that reveal her pain and grief over the loss.
Excerpts from the book include Megan's description of an ultrasound of a baby girl at 10 weeks and a day, where she reflects on the possibilities and the what-ifs. She writes, 'maybe if you hadn't... maybe if i had...' The emotional toll of the miscarriage is evident as she expresses her desire to hold her baby, saying, 'I want to hold your hand / hear your laugh, but now / I have to say / goodbye.' She further shares the pain of imagining the loss, stating, 'I close my eyes and imagine holding you tight against my chest as they rip you from my insides'.
During an interview on Good Morning America, Megan revealed that she had never experienced anything like this before in her life. She described the journey she and Machine Gun Kelly went through together and separately, trying to understand the reasons behind the loss and the meaning it held for them. The couple had not confirmed the pregnancy loss until now, but Machine Gun Kelly appeared to allude to it at the Billboard Music Awards in May when he dedicated his performance to Megan and their unborn child.
Megan also addresses themes of abuse and toxic relationships in her book, sharing her personal experiences. She recounts being in physically and psychologically abusive relationships, some with people who were famous but remain undisclosed. Although she had initially written about even more painful experiences, she decided not to include them in the book, stating that they were meant only for her personal reflection.
Through her book, Megan hopes to inspire women to find strength in using their voices and to provide an elegant outlet for pain through art. By sharing her own experiences, she seeks to let other women know that they are not alone in their suffering. Pretty Boys Are Poisonous reflects Megan's journey of healing and serves as a reminder of the power of self-expression in overcoming adversity.
