Brian Austin Green Is Fine With His Son Wearing Dresses, As Long As He's Having Fun

"He’s 4, and if he wants to wear it, then he wears it."

Brian Austin Green has something to say to the trolls who have criticized him and wife Megan Fox for allowing their son to wear dresses.

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 actor recently sat down with former TMZ producer Dax Holt for Hollywood Pipeline. As they were looking through Green's Instagram account, he pointed to a photo of his son Bodhi, 3, wearing a long red wig. Holt then brought up recent controversy over an image of Green's 4-year-old son Noah wearing a dress.


Both Noah and Bodhi have been photographed in dresses and skirts by the paparazzi, and earlier this year, their mother Megan Fox posted a collage of Polaroids to Instagram, one of which showed Noah wearing a Frozen dress. While many supported Fox for letting her son be himself, others were less accepting of a boy wearing traditionally feminine clothing.

"My son, you know, he's 4 And I've heard from some people that they don't agree with him wearing dresses," Green, who also has a 1-year-old son named Journey with Fox, said of the backlash. "To them I say, 'I don't care.'"

"He's 4, and if he wants to wear it, then he wears it," Green continued. "And it's dresses or goggles or, you know, slippers, whatever."

He went on to emphasize the importance of letting kids have fun and make their own choices, as long as they're not hurting anyone. "It's his life. They're not my clothes," he said. "I feel like, you know, at 4, at 5, that's a time when he should be having fun. He's not harming anyone, wearing a dress. So if he wants to wear a dress, awesome. Good on him."

It's a topic he and his wife clearly agree on. In addition to posting the photo to Instagram, Fox spoke to Jimmy Kimmel about her son's clothing choices last year, explaining, "Noah wears dresses, so there are no rules — you can be whatever you want to be in my house!"

Green and Fox are joined in their acceptance by fellow actor Liev Schreiber, whose son dressed as Harley Quinn at Comic-Con earlier this year. Hopefully, their choice to let their kids express themselves in their own way will set an example for others. 

And at the end of the day, as Green said, who cares what the trolls think anyway?
