It was a no-brainer for Lost star and avid Eminem fan Dominic Monaghan to star in the music video for the rap star’s chart-topping hit with Rihanna “Love the Way You Lie.” And the added bonus — getting some serious face time with young Hollywood beauty, and recently married, Megan Fox. The duo had to share some intense chemistry on the scene and Dominic opened up to MTV about what is was like kissing the gorgeous star!
“What is it like kissing Megan Fox? It’s all right,” he quipped to MTV.”No I’m just kidding. It’s fine, it’s work. She’s married. I have a lot of respect for marriage.”
Megan recently married long-time boyfriend Brian Austin Green, something that Dominic always kept in the back of his mind.
The actor shared with MTV one of the first things he said to Megan on set: “Look, I know that you’re married and I don’t want to do anything inappropriate. And she said, ‘It’s all kind of inappropriate, huh?’ ”
The concept of the clip is centered around domestic violence and Eminem’s turbulent relationship with his twice-ex wife, Kim.
“It’s the story of them getting to know each other and it’s the story of their tumultuous relationship and it’s the story of the breakdown of their relationship,” Dominic explained of the video. “We’re supposed to be desperately in love, like Sid and Nancy, John and Yoko … Eminem and Kim.”
“Though I tried as hard as I could to make her laugh and have fun with her. I think we got on pretty well.”
