Lala Kent said she wasn’t criticising Megan Fox for missing the premiere of “Midnight in the Switchgrass.”
The “Vanderpump Rules” star explained that keeping Fox out of a photo on Instagram was not meant to be a dig at the actress, who missed the film premiere despite appearing in it.
Kent, 30, told Access Hollywood on Friday, “I am not very subtle when I shade people. If I had been upset, I would have just said it.”
The photo in question first appeared on Kent’s Instagram story, and it showed Kent posing with a movie poster — but exactly in front of where Fox, 35, was portrayed.
To make matters worse, Kent placed a black box immediately over Fox’s name on the poster, replacing it with the words “So thrilled for this!”
The truth behind the shot, according to Kent, is far less exciting.
“My mother promptly snapped a photo of me as I stood next to the poster. ‘Pose,’ she said. I’d want to take a photograph.’ I rapidly expressed my excitement for the film and uploaded it, then went in to see it.”
Kent was there to support her lover, Randall Emmett, the filmmaker of “Midnight in the Switchgrass.”
According to a statement from her representative issued to Variety, Fox skipped the film’s Los Angeles premiere due to the mounting cases of COVID-19.
Megan Fox will not be attending the premiere tonight due to the current California mask rule and the surge of COVID cases, according to her spokesman. “We appreciate your patience.”
