Megan Fox On Her Tough-Girl Image And Relationship With Brian Austin Green (PHOTO)

Megan Fox recently claimed she "was never the pretty girl." And now she's dismissing her tough-girl image.

“It’s because I have tattoos and I say curse words, and apparently, that’s crazy," she tells Cosmopolitan in the magazine's April issue. I think maybe I give off this energy of seeming like I don’t give a f--k, and that’s misinterpreted. But I’m not wild.”

In fact, she seems to have had a relatively stable relationship with longtime partner Brian Austin Green, who can be counted on to perform typical husbandly duties (you know, like buying a mouthguard to help mitigate the pain of a tattoo removal).

Fox shares some details on their first meeting, revealing “I didn’t know who he was, since I was too young for Beverly Hills, 90210." (We're guessing that means she never saw this ... or this ... or this.) She continues, "But the first time I saw him, I got butterflies. And the first time he casually touched me? There was so much electricity.”

She also tells Cosmo, “We’ve had obstacles, and we’ve overcome them. I truly feel like he’s my soul mate. I don’t want to sound corny or cliché, but I do believe we are destined to live this part of our lives together.”
