Megan Fox is a fiery redhead!
The Transformers actress, 37, debuted a bright red hairstyle while promoting her poetry book Pretty Boys Are Poisonous at Racket in New York City on Tuesday.
Fox teamed her fiery bob with a brown semi-sheer vest tucked into a high-waisted brown leather pencil skirt and black patent leather heeled boots. She completed her look with nude glossy lips and extra-long red nails.
The actress’ appearance comes as her new poetry book was released on Tuesday.
Fox gets candid about her personal life in the book as she opens up about past abusive relationships and details the miscarriage she suffered with fiancé Machine Gun Kelly (real name Colson Baker).
In one poem, Fox writes about an ultrasound of a baby girl at 10 weeks and a day, sharing, “maybe if you hadn’t… maybe if i had…”
Elsewhere, she writes, “I want to hold your hand / hear your laugh,” and later, “but now / I have to say / goodbye.” Another line is about imagining holding the baby “as they rip you from my insides.”
“I will pay any price,” says Fox. “Tell me please / what is the ransom / for her soul?”
Speaking on Good Morning America this week, Fox said that she’d “never been through anything like that in my life.”
“I have three kids, so it was very difficult for both of us and it sent us on a very wild journey together and separately…trying to navigate, ‘What does this mean?’ and ‘Why did this happen?’” she shared of the traumatic experience.
Fox’s shares sons Noah Shannon, 11, Bodhi Ransom, 9, and Journey River, 7, with her ex-husband Brian Austin Green.
Kelly — who got engaged to Fox in 2021 — has a daughter, Casie Colson Baker, 14, with ex Emma Cannon.
Prior to her book release, Fox spoke to PEOPLE about finding freedom in writing about her life.
“Acting doesn’t really allow me to express myself fully in the way writing does because I’m reading someone else’s words under someone else’s direction,” the Jennifer’s Body actress said. “Poetry gives me a space to experience some catharsis through art.”
The actress added of the book that “some of it is literal, while other parts are allegorical,” but “all of it is something women can relate to.”
