Brian Austin Green is firing back at his ex Vanessa Marcil’s claims that he’s an “angry” and “sad person” with a new word: “Sangry.”
The 47-year-old Beverly Hills, 90210, alum poked fun at his former fiancée’s recent comments on the new episode of his podcast, “With Brian Austin Green.”
“I’m just angry. … I’m angry and I’m sad all the time. And I just don’t know what to do about it. I’m more angry today, I don’t know why,” Green quipped on the Thursday, September 24, episode, titled “Sangry.”Brian Austin Green and Vanessa Marcil.

He continued: “My temper it’s legendary. … If you check around the industry, I’m known as the angry, sad guy. And the diva on set. … They’re just complete opposites, being angry and sad, like, they don’t seem like they would mix together.”
Marcil, 51, made headlines earlier this month after she referred to Green as a “very angry/sad human being” who “still has too much shame to take full responsibility for his actions as a father” via Instagram.
“I consciously knew that I could work through childhood traumas through him and I have,” she wrote on September 11. “I have great empathy towards him and other people who are still in pain from their childhoods.”
Marcil and Green, who share 18-year-old son Kassius, called it quits in 2003 after more than three years together.
On Thursday’s podcast episode, Green’s cohost, Derek Russell, took a shot at Marcil’s remark that she “never loved” the BH90210 star.
“I’ve been there for you every step of the way, but I never loved you, Brian,” Russell quipped. “I never loved you.”
Green sarcastically replied, “That’s a shame.”
During the episode, the actor also seemingly addressed Marcil’s mention of his “traumas.”
“I go to therapy every week, but I don’t know if it’s enough. I’m angry all the time,” he said. “I think everybody should have a therapist all the time, anyway. Whether they’re angry like I am, or they’re fine.”
Green and Marcil were previously involved in a lengthy custody battle over Kassius. In 2018, she alleged that he and then-wife Megan Fox “completely cut” his eldest son “out of their lives.”
While Green publicly never addressed Marcil’s accusations, he proved he was on good terms with Kassius when the teen visited him on set of BH90210 during the summer of 2019.
Green and Fox, meanwhile, are the parents of sons Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 4. They announced their split in May after 10 years together. Fox, 34, has subsequently started dating her Midnight in the Switchgrass Machine Gun Kelly.
Marcil previously praised Fox for moving on, writing, “Respect for how @meganfox is finally living her life for herself & leaving her children out of her public life at this young age. … Megan finally living her life for herself is in itself a gift to her children.”Listen to Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories!
If there was no Seth Cohen (gasp!) — would Dave Rygalski and Lane Kim have ended up together? Adam Brody thinks it’s possible.

“Some people wanted our characters to end up together and they did not. Shame,” Brody, who used wife Leighton Meester‘s Instagram account for the chat, told Agena, 46.
The actress replied, “In another universe,” to which Brody agreed.
The actor joined the cast of the WB drama as Agena’s love interest and bandmate during season 3. While he appeared in several episodes over the 2002-2003 season, Brody left the show before season 4 after he landed the part of Seth Cohen on Fox’s The O.C.
“We were so lucky to have you for whatever amount of time,” Agena, whose character ended up marrying fellow Hep Alien member Zack (Todd Lowe), told Brody on Thursday. “We knew it when you were there that it was great.”YouTube
Brody went on to have fond things to say about his time on the series.
“There was something so cozy and old-fashioned about it,” he said. “There was something thrilling to me. … The Connecticut of it all or wherever Stars Hollow was supposed to be. You’re in sweaters and stuff too. It’s very Christmas, kind of Hallmark-y.”
Brody even revealed that he is Team Logan (Matt Czuchry) for Alexis Bledel’s Rory — but only because he has a brother-in-law named Logan.
“That should be your question because you definitely know that quadrangle better than me,” Brody added. (For the record, Agena is Team Jess, who was played by Milo Ventimiglia.)
The former costars also teamed up to promote the organization Vote Forward, encouraging Americans to write letters to voters in swing states ahead of the U.S. presidential election. During the beginning of their chat, Brody noted he has been doing “pretty wonderful” overall. (Brody and Meester recently welcomed a son. They are also parents of daughter Arlo, 4.)
“It’s this constant, lately, it’s been this constant dichotomy of loving, enjoying my life and also freaking out and pulling my hair over the state of affairs of the world and our country right now and kind of trying to do both,” Brody said. “So, it’s like party in the day, freak out at night.”

A hard truth. Dax Shepard opened up about his struggle with addiction after relapsing on his 16-year sobriety journey.
“I have a tremendous amount of fear about doing this,” the Parenthood alum, 45, began on the Friday, September 25, episode of his “Armchair Expert” podcast. “Maybe some people will feel a sense of betrayal because we preach honesty and I was being dishonest.”
Shepard went on to reveal that he had fallen off the wagon and was taking Vicodin. While he admitted that his most recent motorcycle accident played a small part in his relapse, he added that it would be “unfair” to say that the August health scare was the sole reason for the change. The real battle began in 2012 when he was already several years sober.
“Eight years into sobriety, I had not done a single shady thing,” he explained. “In 2012, my father was dying. He got diagnosed with cancer in August and then he died December 31. I was going back [and forth] nonstop to do all the treatments with him and take him to chemo … I also got into a motorcycle accident going to work on Parenthood [at the time]. I immediately called my sponsor, and I said, ‘I’m in a ton of pain and I gotta work all day. And we have friends that have Vicodin.'”
At the time, Shepard’s sponsor encouraged him to get a prescription from his doctor and have his wife, Kristen Bell, be in charge of administering his doses. He later traveled back to see his father and left the pills behind because the Good Place star, 40, wasn’t flying with him. The Michigan native gave his ailing dad Percocet — and ended up taking some of the pills for himself.
“I go, ‘I have a prescription for this and I was in a motorcycle accident. I’m going to take some too,'” he continued. “You know, we had so little in common and so much friction. But the No. 1 thing we had in common was we were both f–king addicts and we had never used anything together. And we sat there stoned and looked at the lake. And in that moment, I felt elation and I was just happy. … I probably took twice [as much] of what my other prescription was.”Dax Shepard. Andrew H. Walker/Shutterstock
After taking the pills, Shepard was left feeling “overwhelmed” and cried to his wife, who had made a surprise visit to see her father-in-law. The Veronica Mars actress was a source of comfort for her husband in his difficult time and encouraged him to turn to someone for help in his ups and downs. Eight years later, he faced a similar struggle.
“That cycle happens maybe three or four more times,” he recalled. “I feel shady, but I don’t feel like this is a problem. I didn’t desire more when the thing was over. … After I ride sometimes on the track, I feel I’m entitled to take two Vicodin at the end of the day because I am in pain. That again doesn’t feel that crazy. … [But] I’m lying to other people and I know I have to quit … I start getting really scared, and I’m starting to feel really lonely. And I just have this enormous secret.”
Shepard eventually told Bell and his podcast cohost, Monica Padman, what he was going through and attended several meetings after taking “30 mil Oxys” every day. While he marked his 16-year sobriety birthday earlier this month, he revealed that he was high at the celebration meeting his group threw for him that day. Now, he’s seven days clean.
“I’ve had a lot of friends that I’ve watched go through this whole cycle, and I finally have the humility to say I will not be any different,” he said. “I won’t be special. I won’t be smarter. I will be exactly like everyone else.”
