Hollywood star Megan Fox is a huge name in the industry. The actress started her career in 2003 with Bad Boys II after which she worked in a number of TV shows. It was only in 2007’s Transformers opposite Shia LaBeouf that the film industry started noticing her more. She then went on to work in several other films such as Jennifer’s Body, The Dictator, This is 40, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Above The Shadows earlier this year. Now, she’s gearing up for the release of her next film Zeroville. While the star seems to be living a good life, it’s not always the case.
In a recent interview, Megan revealed that she had a genuine psychological breakdown after she was overly objectified by every producer after the release of Jennifer’s Body. She said that her mental well-being was affected was people were objectifying her before the release of the film in 2009 and it got worse after the film hit screens. She said, “Objectified is not the right word, it doesn’t capture what was happening to me at the time. It preceded a breaking point for me, where I had a genuine psychological breakdown.” She added that she avoided going out in public because she felt she would get mocked, yelled at or spat at.
Megan also spoke about the #MeToo movement and how, before it took over the world, people didn’t believe that she was getting mistreated in Hollywood. She shared, “I was sort of in front of the #MeToo movement before the #MeToo movement happened. I was speaking out and saying, ‘Hey, these things are happening to me and they’re not ok’. And everyone was like, we don’t care, you deserve it because of how you talk, because of how you look, how you dress.” But Fox feels that it is when she became pregnant that she felt things were changing for her. She concluded, “That was the first real breakthrough where my consciousness shifted and my mind opened up and I was able to breathe. With every kid I feel like that’s always been the doorway into a better version of myself.”
