In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Megan Fox opened up about suffering a “psychological break down” back in 2009. The actress revealed that around the time Jennifer's Body was released, she found herself consistently being sexualized in films and media.
She explained, “It wasn’t just that movie, it was every day of my life, all the time, with every project I worked on and every producer I worked with. It preceded a breaking point for me.”
She continued, “I think I had a genuine psychological breakdown where I wanted just nothing to do/ I didn’t want to be seen, I didn’t want to have to take a photo, do a magazine, walk a carpet, I didn’t want to be seen in public at all because of the fear, and the belief, and the absolute certainty that I was going to be mocked, or spat at, or someone was going to yell at me, or people would stone me or savage me for just being out. I went through a very dark moment after that.”
Megan revealed that having her first child Noah turned things around for her. She explained, “I think it took getting pregnant — that was the first real breakthrough where my consciousness shifted and my mind opened up and I was able to see from a birds-eye view and breath and take it in. And then another kid, and then another kid and with every kid, I feel like that’s always been the doorway into a better version of myself.”
Megan and Brian Austin Green share three kids, Noah, Bodhi and Journey.
MEGHAN SAYS SHE WAS AFRAID TO SPEAK OUT ON HER OWN #METOO EXPERIENCES
She also revealed that she wanted to speak out on her own #MeToo experiences growing up in Hollywood but she was afraid. She explained, “I feel like I was sort of out and 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, ‘Oh well, f— you. We don’t care, you deserve it.’ Because everybody talked about how you looked or how you dressed or the jokes you made.'”
