Megan Fox has hit out at sexist mum-shamers who criticise her having a life outside the house.

The 35-year-old is mum to Noah, eight, Journey, seven, and four-year-old Bodhi with her ex-husband Brian Austin Green, and the exes share joint custody.

However, Megan has noted that whenever she is seen on the red carpet away from her kids with boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly, she gets ‘so much judgement’ – and she’s not standing for it.

Speaking to InStyle, the Jennifer’s Body star said: ‘Do you ask their dad [where are your kids] when he’s out? No, because 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. 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.’

Megan previously hit out at Brian, 47, for including a picture of their son Journey in an Instagram and ‘feeding the narrative’ that she is ‘an absent mother’.

She wrote in an Instagram comment: ‘Why does Journey have to be in this picture? It’s not hard to crop them out. Or choose photos that they aren’t in. I had a great halloween with them yesterday, and yet notice how absent they are from my social media. I know you love your kids. But I don’t know why you can’t stop using them to posture via Instagram.

You’re so intoxicated with feeding the pervasive narrative that I’m an absent mother, and you are the perennial, eternally dedicated dad of the year. You have them half of the time. Congratulations you truly are a remarkable human!

‘Why do you need the internet to echo back to you what should be inexhaustibly evident in the way your children love you?’

Brian deleted the post and cut Journey from the picture.

In her InStyle profile, the actress also called out sexism in the way her relationship is perceived.

Megan is four years older than Machine Gun Kelly, real name Colson Baker, and she criticised the patriarchy for people wanting to ‘act like I’m dating a younger man’.

She said: ‘He’s 31, and I’m 35. 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.

‘Four years? Go f*** yourself. We would have been in high school together. That’s so ridiculous that women are treated that way.’

The Transformers star looked incredible in an array of lewks for the magazine profile, including a corseted gown, bedazzled trousers and a striking black blazer with strong shoulders.

After a number of years away from the screen followed by some smaller projects, Megan is back on the big screen with two movies this year.

In Midnight In The Switchgrass, the movie where she met MGK, Megan plays an FBI agent working to bust a sex trafficking ring, who ends up being abducted by their target.

And in thriller Till Death, she plays a woman who, after having an affair, ends up handcuffed to the corpse of her dead husband and attempting to outrun an assassin.
