Megan Fox was “moved to tears” in a new interview while revealing that her eldest son, Noah, “suffers” from bullying at school.
“I do have a child that suffers. I have a lot of worries about that, because I just wish that humanity was not like this,” the actress told Glamour UK, referencing the 9-year-old son she shares with ex-husband Brian Austin Green.
“Although my kid is so brave and my child is so brave and I know that they’ve chosen this journey for a reason. It’s just hard as a mom.”
Fox, 35, explained that Noah started wearing dresses when he was about 2 years old. She said she “bought a bunch of books that sort of addressed these things,” including books written by transgender children.
“Some of the books are just about how you can be a boy and wear a dress; you can express yourself through your clothing however you want,” she shared. “And that doesn’t even have to have anything to do with your sexuality.”
The “Transformers” star, who is now engaged to Machine Gun Kelly, went on to say that she tries to make sure none of her and Green’s kids are made to feel like “they are weird or strange or different.”
However, she’s aware she “can’t control the way other people react” to her children. That’s part of the reason why she’s reluctant to post photos of Noah or his siblings, Bodhi Ransom, 8, and Journey River, 5, online.
“I’m so proud of my kids. Noah is an unbelievable pianist. He can learn Mozart’s concerto in an hour,” Fox gushed. “I want people to see that, but I also don’t want the world to have access to this gentle soul and say all the things that we all know they’re going to say.”
The “Jennifer’s Body” star also admitted that she cries “every new moon” when she thinks about having to leave her three sons for long periods of time.
“I wish I could take them out to travel with me, it would make things a lot easier,” she said.
“I cry often, every new moon usually. I get in the bath and cry a lot about it. Because it is hard, and not because of pressures that anybody else or society puts on you, but it is just hard being separated from them in that way. They are my DNA.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Fox addressed her friendship with Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, telling the outlet that the couple had a “magnetic” connection.
“We don’t have a lot of double dates,” she explained. “I mean, between all of us, there’s 900 kids.”
Even when Fox is able to catch up with the pair, she said there isn’t much conversation to be had.
“Nobody’s really interacting with them too much, because they’re just stuck,” she said, referencing their frequent PDA. “They’re stuck together like this.”
