Matthew Fox has gotten in all sorts of trouble lately.
He pleaded no contest to driving under the influence and got sued for allegedly punching a female Ohio bus driver, but the most damaging headline was when Lost co-star Dominic Monaghan tweeted that he beats women "often."
Although his people denied the allegations, Fox has yet to personally address the issue — until now. In the most recent issue of Men's Fitness, the 46-year-old Alex Cross star told his side of the story and explained:
"It's been a long, trying year of sitting on my hands on a lot of negative sh*t said about me, when they're the furthest things from who I am. In the 46 years I've been breathing on this planet, I have never hit a woman before. Never have, never will. I think there's still gonna be a lot of people out there who'll think it's true no matter what … The Cleveland situation, the Monaghan situation - was a pile of bullsh*t, and I'm not gonna waste too much breath on that."
So he didn't much explain where those allegations came from and why, but if you take his word for it, he's never hit a woman before.
While we hope that's true, it would have been nice to get a clue why Monaghan would have started such a nasty rumor in the first place.
