Megan Fox’s New Girl Costar Lamorne Morris Calls Her ‘One of the Smartest People I’ve Ever Met’

Even though Megan Fox is currently going through a divorce from husband Brian Austin Green, her spirits are high and her sense of humor is staying strong, says her New Girl costar Lamorne Morris.

“She’s fantastic. We’re filming right now,” Morris, 32, told PEOPLE at the 7th annual Generosity.Org Night of Generosity gala in Los Angeles on Friday. “She’s great – super funny, super fun to look at and super fun to work with.”

Back in August, Fox, 29, filed for separation from Green, 42, after five years of marriage. In return, Green asked for spousal support and joint custody of their two children Noah Shannon, 3, and Bodhi Ransom, 18 months (Green also has 13-year-old Kassius from a previous relationship).

“You wouldn’t know there was anything [going on],” Morris told reporters at the event, which also counted Green on its guest list. “I really didn’t know.”

Fox was brought in to New Girl to replace star Zooey Deschanel during her maternity leave, and the work is apparently keeping Fox quite busy … answering questions from her costar, that is.

“If I ever have a question, literally about anything, [I ask Megan]. She’s probably one of the smartest people I’ve ever met in my entire life by a mile – super intelligent,” added Morris. “So I just ask her questions all day about everything. We talk about astrology and aliens. We just talk about the most off-the-wall stuff.”

Season 5 of New Girl is set to premiere in January 2016.

Megan Fox May Be Back on Transformers 5; Friendly Term With Michael Bay

‘Transformers 5’ is a planned sequel to Michael Bay’s ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’. It is unclear whether the director will return to helm the fifth installment in the series. Former lead actress Megan Fox expressed her openness to make cameos in future films since she and Bay are back on friendly working terms.

It seemed that the general public was left in the dark regarding what sparked Fox to say what she said. According to Moviepilot, Bay already had a history of harshness and lasciviousness when it came to handling his actors, specifically Fox who played Shia LaBeouf’s love interest Mikaela Banes. It was reported that the young actress had a hard time filming the series and decided to leave for her own good.

Although details for ‘Transformers 5’ may be scarce as of the present, speculations of Fox’s return have emerged. According to Cinema Blend, the aging franchise may need a familiar face to help sell it to the audiences once more and putting Fox back on may be the golden ticket. The actress did express her willingness to return even for a short cameo in future films, so the idea may not be entirely impossible especially with her back on amiable working terms with Bay.

Megan Fox Out in Toulca Lake – September 28

Despite news reports back in August of actress Megan Fox and husband, Brian Austin Green, separating, the two appeared to be spending time together along with Brian’s parents. After grabbing a bite to eat at a nearby eatery, Megan was spotted holding on to a green balloon, while Brian cradled his son as they walked across the parking lot. It appears that Megan and Brian are doing their best to not let their separation affect their children. Still, we can’t help but wonder if these two may be attempting to patch things up.
