The actress, now 33 years old, has gone through very dark hours.
In 2007, Megan Fox explodes in the eyes of the general public through Transformers , a film by Michael Bay (which had already given him a tiny role in Bad Boys 2 ). After a sequel two years later, she plays a fatal beauty possessed by a demon in Jennifer’s Body by Karyn Kusama. A box office binge that coincided with a troubled period of her life, she recalls at the microphone of Entertainement Tonight : ” There was so much going on in my life at that time. The fact that the film was criticized worried me little, “she says. ” I had a very tense relationship with the public, media and journalists, and I was so bad in general that it was not a particularly painful one. It was just part of a whole .
Megan Fox talks about her burnout and depression, her lack of desire to be ” seen, to have my picture taken, to do an interview, to walk on a red carpet (…) I was certain that we would make fun of mocking, spitting on, that someone was going to shout at me or that people would throw stones at me (…) I went through something very dark after ” Jennifer’s Body .
It explains how the sexualization excessively her body was his day: ” It was not that in this film, it was every day of my life, all the time, on every project and every producer (…) I ‘ felt like I was both outside and at the heart of the #MeToo movement before the #MeToo movement. I was talking about all that and everyone would say, ‘Oh, fuck you. We do not care, you deserve it . She says she does not ” have a place in feminism, ” even if it’s a movement she believes in. ” I consider myself a feminist, but I feel that feminists do not want me to be part of their group. What does it mean to help other women if we only help some of them? “
Megan Fox says she managed to get out of the depression with her three children: ” I think I had to get pregnant to change my mind (…) Every child allowed me to open a door to a better version of myself (…) Being a mother is not something respected in this industry. It’s even more considered a handicap .
