July 22, 2020: They gushed about their immediate connection during their first joint interview.
The couple sat down for their first interview together on an episode of “Give Them Lala … With Randall,” in which Emmett, the director of “Midnight in the Switchgrass,” asked about their early interactions.
Fox recalled learning that Kelly had joined the cast during a table read.
“I was like, ‘Who’s going to play this role?’ And he was like, ‘Oh, we just got Machine Gun Kelly.’ And immediately, I was like, ‘Uh oh,'” Fox said.
She continued, “I knew. I could feel that some wild s— was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn’t yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my solar plexus that something was going to come from that.”
When the costars were filming in Puerto Rico, their trailers were directly next to each other, according to Kelly, who said he’d wait outside to “catch one glimpse of eye contact” with the actress.
“She would have to get out of her car,” he said, adding, “There were like five steps between the car and the trailer. I would just sit there and hope.”
Fox said that she considers Kelly to be her “twin flame,” which the actress described as a soul that has “ascended to a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time.”
“We’re actually two halves of the same soul,” she said. “I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.”
