Brian Austin Green opens up to Details magazine about being famous in the 90s, his foray into rapping and dating Megan Fox since she was 18.
Here are a few excerpts from the interview, read the whole thing here.
On Megan as a stepmom:
"She is absolutely my better half in parenting. She just gets it. It's instinctual for her. She loves my son, Kassius. And from the time we started dating--you know, she was 18--she stepped in and took control. It's unbelievable. At 18, I was like, 'Hey, which club is open tonight? And how cool do my pants look? Can I sneak a drink across the bar without getting caught?'"
On their 13-year age difference:
"When we met, I had just separated from Kash's mom and a relationship was the last thing on my mind. It's not something I ever thought would be serious. But she brought out parts of me that I had lost in my last relationship. I had come off of 90210, and I never wanted to leave my house. I was afraid of the press. I was afraid of people's opinions of me. I would walk into a Coffee Bean and not want to look the guy behind the counter in the eyes because I was afraid he was thinking, 'Oh, that's that ridiculous guy from 90210 who put out the hip-hop album.' Megan was a big part of boosting my confidence. And at the same time, I was somebody responsible and grounded for her to be around. We just matched."
On being less famous than Megan:
"I know the normal male thing is the man works and is successful and brings home the paycheck. I don't know who the hell set it up, but it's what people expect. I just don't care. I hated being famous during 90210. I'm not an extrovert. I'm 37. I have a beautiful wife. I have an amazing 8-year-old son. I love acting, but this is just my job. F**k, next year I could book some crazy movie that blows up and things could shift completely. And I guarantee you at that point she'll say, 'F**k, thank God. You go do all that shit now. I'm sick of it.'"
