Megan Fox ‘gets it’ as a mom, Brian Austin Green says

Admittedly, Brian Austin Green hasn’t been that accessible to fans since his David Silver days on the original ‘Beverly Hills 90210.’

There was that fantastic Lifetime movie he did about being a single dad then -- poof! -- the next time we really noticed him was on Megan Fox‘s arm.


All that changes this month as the actor prepares to play the resident hunk on ‘Desperate Housewives.’ Green talked to Details about raising a son alongside Fox, the pressures of being a piece of prime-time beefcake and the fame divide between him and his movie star bride.

‘She is absolutely my better half in parenting. She just gets it. It’s instinctual for her,’ he said of Fox’s relationship with Kassius Lijah, 8, Green’s son with actress Vanessa Marcil.

‘I know the normal male thing is the man works and is successful and brings home the paycheck. I don’t know who the hell set it up, but it’s what people expect.’

‘I just don’t care ... next year I could book some crazy movie that blows up and things could ...

... shift completely. And I guarantee you at that point she’ll say ... thank God.’ Money and fame may not matter in their household, but Green certainly has a new appreciation of what Fox goes through to maintain her sex symbol status.

‘I’ve never played a hunky guy,’ he said of his new ‘Desperate’ gig.

‘There was one day when I had to take my shirt off. I must have done 400 push-ups. I feel like I understand the pressure that women go through. I feel, like, all-woman at times.”
