NEW YORK – Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, who was known for packing the PDA on previous red carpets, didn’t appear hand-in-hand for the Tribeca premiere of Kelly’s latest movie “Taurus.”
Instead, Kelly, who goes by Colson Baker in his acting career, stood alone at about six feet tall, dressed in a white sequined suit and bright millennial pink hair. As an accessory he carried a blood-filled syringe earring with a red jewel dangling to resemble a single drop.
The actor and rock star only posed for cameras ahead of the screening of “Taurus” at New York City’s Beacon Theater as part of Thursday’s annual Tribeca Festival. While the movie was the main event, the red carpet burst into cheers as Baker entered the media-filled tent. Fox, dressed in red, met him off the carpet as they entered the theater together.

Written and directed by Tim Sutton, “Taurus” follows the tragic fate of a rock star similar to Baker who struggles with an addiction that changes his music and puts a strain on those around him, including his assistant and young daughter.
Fox joined the cast and director onstage after the screening, saying little more than come in when it came to describing Baker’s astrological birth chart. And although she only appeared on screen for about three minutes and with no lines, Sutton said Fox was involved in the film from the start.

“I went to their house and threw (Taurus) hard at her,” Sutton told USA TODAY. “If we had (another) actress play his girlfriend… it’s pure fiction. Instead, you think this is their real life.”
The film, described by one contestant as “‘A Star is Born’ with a hint of depression,” does have a few remixes, however. Fox’s Mae character plays Colson’s Cole’s ex-wife, but in reality the two are planning a wedding. after getting engaged in January with a sip of each other’s blood.
The blood continued to be a theme in the Fox/Baker relationship with the actor’s jewelry choice and Fox’s red dress.
But when asked about the earring on the red carpet, Baker, who has been open about wearing Fox’s blood in a necklace, simply replied, “Find your own guess.”
