Matthew Fox: ‘I Have Never Hit a Woman’

After two run-ins with the law in 14 months, Matthew Fox wants to set the record straight. Yes, he drove drunk. No, he didn’t hit a woman.

“It’s been a long, trying year of sitting on my hands on a lot of negative s— said about me, when they’re the furthest things from who I am,” the former Lost actor tells Men’s Fitness.

“In the 46 years I’ve been breathing on this planet, I have never hit a woman before. Never have, never will,” he says. “Out of all the negative s—, the only thing that’s true is that I was arrested for a DUI.”

Heather Bormann, the Cleveland bus driver who claimed Fox assaulted her in August 2011, withdrew her lawsuit this year. But Fox admits the incident hurt his reputation. It also didn’t help that Fox’s former Lost costar Dominic Monaghan labeled him a “woman beater” on Twitter.

“I think there’s still gonna be a lot of people out there who’ll think it’s true no matter what,” Fox says.

As for the DUI this past May, Fox says his behavior was “stupid” and something he’ll never repeat.

“I will bet you any amount of money that I will never get behind the wheel of a car after even one drink,” he says. “The rest of it, the Cleveland situation, the Monaghan situation – was a pile of bulls**t, and I’m not gonna waste too much breath on that.”

Alex Cross, the movie Fox was filming in Cleveland when the bus episode happened, opens this Friday.

Matthew Fox’s Mugshot Gets Taken … Two Months After His Arrest

Matthew Fox’s Mugshot Gets Taken … Two Months After His Arrest

Things really went kind of south for Matthew Fox over the last year. He had a massive fall from grace because of everything from a DUI arrest to beating up a “party bus” driver, the latter of which, was one of the stranger celebrity incidents we’ve heard of in a while. Those accusations by Dominic Monaghan didn’t help his case either. Last we know, he was getting sued by that party bus driver, Heather Bormann, as she claimed he tried to drunkenly trespass on her bus and then he, “leaned in and started punching my crotch and breast” after she tried to prevent him from getting on. Which was just … we can’t even begin to say anything.

The mugshot you see above is not because of that case. It’s because of his DUI, mentioned earlier, which happened in his home state of Oregon, in the first week of May this year. Fox was arrested at 3:23am after being busted by cops while trying to drive to a fast food spot. Luckily, he didn’t face any jail time as Fox and his lawyer struck a plea deal with prosecutors, which also required him to get treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. So, case closed right? Not quite. Fox had to go back to the Deschutes County Adult Jail in Bend, Oregon a couple of days ago, to get his mugshot clicked. The arrest was on May 4. It’s July 3 today. What gives? Apparently, the camera was broken the night of his almost-incarceration, so the judge made him come back for it, two months later! So it may not be a drunken one … but here’s his mugshot, finally!

No Jail For DUI, Assault Charges Dropped: Things Are Looking Slight Less Horrible For Matthew Fox

After having what for most people would be the worst week of their life, Lost actor Matthew Fox some good news today. Of course, no news could be good enough to counterbalance the awfulness he was accused of on Wednesday, so take that into consideration. After being arrested for a DUI in Oregon earlier this month, TMZ reports that Fox struck a plea deal with prosecutors which will ensure he doesn’t get jail time; as part of the deal Matthew pled no contest to one count of DUI, lost his license for a year and has to undergo drug and alcohol treatment. Oh, boy. Actually, that news is kind of a mixed bag, too.

That being said, the actor had to be pleased that Heather Bormann, the Cleveland party bus driver who accused Fox of assaulting her last year, had her case recently withdrawn by her lawyer after she allegedly “intentionally failed and refused to provide full and timely cooperation and information.” Boy, that’s kind of unsettling too, right? Oh, and then there’s the part where his former Lost costar Dominic Monaghan took to Twitter and claimed that Fox “beats women.” You know what? Forget we said anything. Matthew Fox’s whole situation is still coming out deep in the negative column.
