Machine Gun Kelly Says He’ll ‘Always Collaborate’ with Fiancée and Good Mourning Costar Megan Fox

Machine Gun Kelly is full of praise for his fiancée Megan Fox.

Fanboying Over His Future Wife

Kelly, 32, and Fox, 35, attended the premiere of their new film Good Mourning at the London Hotel in West Hollywood, California.

Good Mourning follows Kelly’s London Clash, a character who is forced to choose between pursuing true love or a once-in-a-lifetime movie role.

In addition to starring in the film, Kelly also serves as writer and director alongside friend Mod Sun, who co-wrote and co-directed the film.

The cast also features Pete Davidson, Dove Cameron, Becky G, Whitney Cummings, Zach Villa, and Jenna Boyd.

Speaking with PEOPLE at the premiere event, Kelly said that directing his fiancée in the film was a collaboration between both stars.

“She didn’t let me lead her character too much in any direction. She was like ‘I got this. I understand what this character is,’ “ he explained. “She improvised and brought [her character] Kennedy to life, and I’ve heard a lot of people say that that’s their favorite character in the movie.”

“I’ll always collaborate with Megan,” the Mainstream Sellout musician added. “I’m madly in love with her — and I’m also a fan.”

His Inspiration

Kelly also reflected on his favorite part of shooting the film with his soon-to-be wife, telling PEOPLE that many of Fox’s lines were inspired by their actual life together.

“Every line that people wanted to keep in the editing station that she had said was stuff that she actually had said to me in real life,” he detailed. “She was like, ‘You’re 30. It’s time to grow up.’ “

Kelly added that appearing in the film allows him to show fans a different side of himself.

“I think there’s a Machine Gun Kelly persona that people have married themselves to, and the character that I play in the movie, London, is a vulnerable humanized version of who I really am,” he said.

Good Mourning hits theaters and will be available on-demand May 20.
