‘[T]he couples that you see in the tabloids are being reported about even when there’s not even a problem,’ Fox tells Steppin’ Out magazine.
Megan Fox tied the knot last week with her longtime love, Brian Austin Green, in a very hush-hush ceremony in Hawaii. Never one to hold back on her opinions on various topics, such as her love of older men like Green and her tumultuous relationship with director Michael Bay, Fox is now speaking out about the often short shelf life of Hollywood marriages.
She notes that it’s not just in Hollywood that she sees marriages dissolving. “I think couples generally aren’t staying together. The divorce rate is so high right now,” she tells next week’s Steppin’ Out magazine. “But I think [the reason it’s high in] Hollywood specifically is because of two things.”
“Everything is so easily accessed in Hollywood. Whatever you want you have at your fingertips. So for a lot of people, that temptation is just too much,” she said. “You lose the ability to cherish something else because there are so many others out there just waiting for you.”
The next problem, according to Fox? The amount of media coverage given to Hollywood’s high-profile relationships. “[T]he couples that you see in the tabloids are being reported about even when there’s not even a problem,” she said. “Being on cover after cover after cover, the relationship becomes even harder to maintain than it normally is — which isn’t easy to begin with. Your life being out there in the open is almost unbearable.”
With all of that in mind, Fox says the way to make a Hollywood marriage work is “both people have to be incredibly strong people to make it through that. It’s sad, and I think the media is responsible for a lot of it. At least for planting the seed. Like I said earlier, actors are very insecure people to begin with.”
