Megan Fox, a name that resonates with an entire generation, has carved her niche in Hollywood over the years. For many ’90s kids, she was the face of blockbuster movies, but for the young Gen Z, she’s known not just for her acting career but also for her controversial relationship with Machine Gun Kelly. Now, the multi-talented actress has added another feather to her cap, as she ventures into the world of literature with her poetry book, ‘Pretty Boys Are Poisonous.’
Megan Fox, famous for her roles in movies like ‘Transformers’ and ‘Jennifer’s Body,’ recently appeared on ‘Good Morning America’ to discuss her new book. She made it clear from the start that her work shouldn’t be mistaken for a memoir. “This is not an exposé that I wrote or a memoir,” she asserted. Instead, ‘Pretty Boys Are Poisonous’ is a collection of poems that offer a glimpse into her experiences and emotions.

She writes, “You are an addiction / that no amount of prayers / will ever cure / my cries for relief / floating / unheard into the ether / you are killing me / but my heart / won’t give you up…” This echoes her August 2020 Instagram post, where she referred to him as an “Achingly Beautiful Boy.”
