    On March 9, 2020, filming on a movie called Midnight in the Switchgrass began in Puerto Rico. Its cast included Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, who met for the first time on set.

    Two days into filming, Megan knew that MGK was her "twin flame" — the other half of her soul — so she invited him to her trailer for an astrological reading.

    However, before they got together, Megan made a pros and cons list.
