Machine Gun Kelly didn't need much convincing to accept a role in a movie starring Megan Fox. The performer said the second Fox's name was mentioned in a film he was considering, he immediately said yes.

While on Friday's episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, MGK shared the story of how he really met the Transformers star. "Can I ask how you guys met? Did you get set up on a date?" Barrymore asked while MGK painted her nails.

"We were filming a movie [Midnight in the Switchgrass], which ironically is the only reason I took the movie was because they were like, 'Your scenes with Megan Fox' and I was like, 'I'll take the movie,'" he said.

Kelly went on to explain how he had a gut feeling about his chance meeting with Fox, noting that his "gut is always right and I'm grateful for it."

"For some reason I knew she would invite me for lunch," MGK continued. "Then, all of a sudden, someone came over and was like, 'Megan wants to know if you want to have lunch in her trailer.' And I was like, 'Oh my god, I'm so surprised. Yeah, absolutely.'"

MGK says he went inside Fox's trailer and she asked him how he was feeling. "I'm lost," he told her. "She said, 'Let's find you,'" Kelly said. "And I was like ...killed me. She was cupid."

The entire studio audience gushed when MGK finished telling the story, prompting Barrymore to respond with, "You got hit by her arrow!"

It sure seems Fox and Kelly are in it for the long haul. A source tells ET the "My Ex's Best Friend" musician has been telling friends he's preparing to pop the question.

"They're very in love and beyond obsessed with each other," the source said. "They are ready to take this next step in their relationship."
