Megan Fox is engaged to longtime boyfriend Brian Austin Green again, People, E! and MTV report. The “Transformers” and “Jonah Hex” star has been dating the former “Beverly Hills, 90210″ actor on-and-off since 2004. They were previously betrothed in 2006 but broke it off in early 2009.
Green proposed to Fox on June 1 in Hawaii with a 2-carat rock from Excalibur in Beverly Hills. In the flurry of excitement and déjà vu, they dropped the ring in the sand and lost it. D’oh. Lesson for all couples: Hang onto the ring after a broken engagement, because if you get re-engaged in the future, you may need it as a backup.
Fox, 24, is 12 years younger than the 36-year-old Green and has spoken in the past about her preference for older men. “Boys in their 20s are a waste of time,” she once told Elle. “They have nothing to offer conversationally. They’re immature. I feel like I have a better shot with someone in his 30s.”
Best of luck to the couple, and to the treasure hunters with metal detectors scanning Hawaii beaches.
