Megan Fox for Cosmopolitan 2014
They write: “Poor Brian,” Megan says, shaking her head. “He doesn’t get any intimacy, ever, because my older son sleeps in bed with us. There are days when we barely say two words to each other, because if I have Bodhi, he has Noah, and then we switch. We’ve talked about going to an amazing hotel at their bedtime and coming home before they wake up, but that hasn’t happened yet. Our sex life is at a standstill.”
Hey, at least she’s honest! Which is exactly what makes talking to her so much fun.
OK, your family is adorable. How do you keep a relationship hot with two small kids?
I am not the person to ask about keeping a marriage hot! Joe Gorga from The Real Housewives of New Jersey used to say he was “full of poison” and needed to have sex with his wife to get rid of it. That always made me laugh, because if it’s true, I’m surprised Brian hasn’t experienced toxic shock syndrome.
So date night isn’t happening?
Since Noah was born, we’ve been on three dates. It’s really hard for me to justify taking two hours to take a shower and get ready then to leave for dinner. Now we’re talking four hours, and that’s too long. I’ll do it for work, because I have to. But to do it because I’m choosing to go out, I haven’t worked my way up to that.
What do you think it takes to make a relationship work over the long haul?
You have to be with someone who loves you at your absolute worst, because you can’t be an actress every moment of the day forever. Brian and I have done everything you can do to ruin a relationship and we still love each other. I don’t want to be boastful and say that we would never divorce, but I can’t imagine a scenario we couldn’t work through”.
