NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Megan Fox made a big impression on Brian Austin Green when he guest starred on the ABC sitcom she was a part of in the early 2000’s, ABC’s “Hope & Faith.”
“He dug her in a big way,” “Hope & Faith” star Kelly Ripa told Popeater in a new interview.
But the former “90210” star, who recently wed Megan, wasn’t the only one who fell in love with the brunette beauty upon their first meeting.
“I mean, let me just say this — that little lady… everybody had a crush on – everybody!” Kelly said. “There wasn’t a person that didn’t swoon when she walked into the room and he was no exception.”
Kelly, who said she hasn’t seen the pair “in years,” noted that when Brian and Megan first met, the young actress was equally hot for the primetime hunk, who would eventually become her husband.
“She really dug him too. They’re great people. They’re a great couple and she is, she’s just a great girl,” Kelly said.
Kelly added that she’s thrilled for the former “Transformers” actress, who played her niece, Sydney Shanowski on “Hope & Faith,” now that she is a newlywed.
“I’m so happy for her,” Kelly noted. “They seem very happy and very adorable.”
