A young love-struck rose bearer who was snubbed by Megan Fox at the London premiere of the Transformers sequel is a wanted teenager — Kodak bosses want to give him $5,000 and make his dream of meeting the actress come true.
Officials at the photo company are offering a reward to anyone who can identify the kid, dubbed ‘Rose boy,’ who tried in vain to hand a yellow flower to Fox — and was photographed by agencies all over the world.
Kodak bosses have offered to fly the kid and his family to Hollywood, where he’ll meet the pinup.
Leslie Dance, Vice President of Kodak’s Worldwide Brand Marketing & Communications, tells PerezHilton.com, “It’s amazing how just a photograph can connect and change the lives of two complete strangers. If this photo is any indication, this boy was really hoping to meet Megan Fox and give her that rose, and we’d love to help make his fantastical wish come true.”
Fox has already issued a heartfelt apology to the unknown boy, claiming she was blinded by paparazzi flashbulbs at the London screening of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen earlier this month — and she didn’t see him.
She told Collider.com, “I feel so sad for him. That’s so terrible. That kills me. There were, like, 80 million people everywhere. It’s dark, all I see are flashes. Everyone’s yelling different things… and I didn’t know that was happening.
“If you know his name, I will send him a personal apology. I’m horrified. I would never do that. I’m sorry, sweet boy. I would never do that to you, and I would gladly accept your rose if I see you again.”
