    Megan Fox Called Out The "Ridiculous" Way Machine Gun Kelly Is Portrayed As Her "Younger Man"

    "No one would blink twice if George Clooney was dating someone four years younger."

    In a new interview with InStyle, Megan Fox called out sexist criticism of the age difference between her and boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.

    The two have been together for around a year now and have a mere four-year age gap between them — but that apparently hasn't stopped people from being judgmental.

    "You want to talk about patriarchy?" Megan began. "The fact that he's four years younger than me, and people want to act like I'm dating a younger man. He's 31, and I'm 35."

    It's worth mentioning that Megan's ex, Brian Austin Green, met Megan when he was 30 and she was 18.

    "Granted, he's lived like he's 19 his whole life, but he isn't 19. No one would blink twice if George Clooney was dating someone four years younger."

    Indeed, there's a 17-year age gap between George and his wife, Amal.

    "Four years? Go fuck yourself. We would have been in high school together," she continued. "That's so ridiculous that women are treated that way."

    Megan added that there's also "so much judgment" when it comes to her role as a mother — as she's often asked where her kids are when she's on the red carpet or out on MGK's motorcycle. "You don't expect a dad to be with the kids all the time, but I'm supposed to not be seen and be at home with my kids. They have another parent," she said.

    MGK is also a parent. 

    "I have to leave and sometimes I don't want them photographed and they don't come with me. This whole year I've been very surprised by how archaic some of the mindsets still are in some people."

    Anyway, off I go to check on my elderly roommate who's three years older than me.
