Megan Fox announced Monday that she wouldn't be walking the red carpet at that evening's premiere for new new crime thriller Midnight In The Switchgrass.

The 35-year-old actress announced via a representative that she was skipping the premiere over safety concerns related to a rise in cases of Covid-19.

'Due to the recent California mask mandate and rise of COVID cases, Megan Fox will no longer be attending the premiere tonight,' her rep said in an email to reporters covering the premiere shortly beforehand. 'We appreciate your understanding.'

Notably, the biggest stars of the film seem to be skipping the event, including Bruce Willis and Megan's boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.

In a recent interview for the July edition of Who What Wear, Megan claimed that she had only agreed to star in Midnight In The Switchgrass in order to meet her costar, 31-year-old Machine Gun Kelly (real name: Colson Baker).

I Call Bull: You know its going to be a howler when none of the start show up for it.

Another 'straight to DVD' by the looks of things, oh and I'm calling BULL on the excuse given here and the claim she took the role purposely to meet Kelly

Must be nice to be able to just pick and choose what parts of the job you can be bothered to do.

A guaranteed stinker of a film doubtless. It's been a LONG while since Megan Fox has been a draw to the cinema.

Willis and Fox are both straight to DVD (ask your parents and don't try to buy it at Sainsburys https://bit.ly/3wRvvzG ) merchants these days so I'm not holding out much hope for this
