Megan Fox declined a rose offered by a young admirer and was unable to rectify the situation once his identity became known.

Should you ever find yourself in the peculiar situation of purchasing flowers for Megan Fox, avoid opting for a bouquet of roses.
The 37-year-old actress once rebuffed a gesture of affection from one of her ardent young fans in the presence of a horde of paparazzi, who naturally captured the entire incident. See it for yourself here:

Eleven-year-old Harvey Kindlon, hailing from London, was among the multitude of fans who gathered to show their support for Megan during her promotional visit to the UK for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." Her portrayal of Mikaela Banes, the girlfriend of Shia LaBeouf's character Sam Witwicky in the sci-fi action franchise, had catapulted her to stardom.

Given her newfound fame, Megan attracted admirers wherever she went, with men vying for her attention and groups of young lads hoping to win her favor. In June 2009, outside her hotel in London, Harvey decided to make his move when Megan passed by.

The infamous images depict him eagerly reaching out to Machine Gun Kelly's fiancée as she is escorted by security. Despite Harvey's enthusiastic attempt to present his gift, Megan appeared to ignore the youngster, continuing past him with a somewhat disgusted expression.
The images of the unsuccessful encounter quickly gained global attention, sparking an outpouring of sympathy for the 11-year-old, affectionately dubbed 'Rose Boy' by the internet. Even in the playground, kids took pleasure in reminding him of the chilly reception he experienced, and Harvey mentioned to UNILAD that the incident kept gaining traction.

Megan, then 23 years old, learned about the controversy during a press junket for Transformers and publicly apologized to the boy with genuine remorse. She expressed, "There were, like, 80 million people everywhere. It was dark, all I see are flashes. Everyone's yelling different things... and I didn't know that was happening. It breaks my heart. I feel so sad for him. That's so terrible. That kills me."

Megan continued, "I'm sorry, sweet boy. I would never do that to you. I would gladly accept your rose if I ever see you again. Paparazzi would not let you get to me. I'm so embarrassed."

The narrative took an unexpected turn when Kodak intervened, offering a reward for anyone who could help locate Harvey. The photography company also extended a $5,000 reward to fulfill the boy's dream of meeting the star.
Leslie Dance, Vice President of Kodak’s Worldwide Brand Marketing & Communications, shared with, "It’s remarkable how a single photograph can connect and alter the lives of two complete strangers. If this photo is any indication, this boy was genuinely hoping to meet Megan Fox and present her with that rose, and we would love to help turn his fantastical wish into reality."

The internet promptly worked its magic, leading to the swift discovery of Harvey. His cousin, Holly Bramley, later confirmed that the devoted fan would be flying to New York to meet Megan in person. The original plan was for the two to reunite during Fox's visit for a TV appearance, but their eagerly anticipated meeting was thwarted when the show was canceled following Michael Jackson's sudden death. Megan returned to LA, and unfortunately, Harvey experienced a second disappointment.

Reports suggested that the coordination of the meeting was poorly organized, with no definite date and time set for the 11-year-old to meet his idol. Nevertheless, Harvey made the most of his 15 minutes of fame, enjoying some airtime on Good Morning America.

As it turned out, the rose Harvey attempted to give Megan wasn't even his; it belonged to his cousin Cassie, who admired the actor and had chosen a yellow rose to offer when she walked past. They say never to meet your heroes, so perhaps the dual setbacks were a sign for Harvey to take heed of.
