Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are hitting the big screen together once again. On Thursday (May 12) evening, the couple attended the premiere of their new film Good Mourning at the London Hotel in West Hollywood, California.
Speaking with People at the premiere event, MGK, 32, said, “She didn’t let me lead her character too much in any direction. She was like ‘I got this. I understand what this character is,’ ” he explained. “She improvised and brought [her character] Kennedy to life, and I’ve heard a lot of people say that that’s their favorite character in the movie.”
“I’ll always collaborate with Megan,” the Mainstream Sellout musician added. “I’m madly in love with her — and I’m also a fan.”
Kelly also reflected on his favorite part of shooting the film with his soon-to-be wife, revealing that many of Fox’s lines were inspired by their actual life together. “Every line that people wanted to keep in the editing station that she had said was stuff that she actually had said to me in real life,” he detailed. “She was like, ‘You’re 30. It’s time to grow up.'”
Starring as the lead in the movie, Kelly added that he allowed himself to show audiences another side of himself. “I think there’s a Machine Gun Kelly persona that people have married themselves to, and the character that I play in the movie, London, is a vulnerable humanized version of who I really am,” he said.
Good Mourning follows Kelly’s London Clash, a character who is forced to choose between pursuing true love or a once-in-a-lifetime movie role. In addition to starring in the film, Kelly also serves as writer and director alongside friend Mod Sun, who co-wrote and co-directed the film. Pete Davidson, Dove Cameron, Becky G, Whitney Cummings, Zach Villa and Jenna Boyd round out the cast.
