Megan Fox explained that she faced the “sexualization” in Hollywood leads to a mental breakdown.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the successful actress Megan Fox revealed how the sexualization of “Jennifer’s Body” movie affected her mental health and Hollywood career. She said:
“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. I think I had a genuine psychological breakdown where I wanted just nothing to do.”
The 33-year-old star continued to explain the darkest moments in her life. She said:
“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 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… so I went through a very dark moment after that.
There was so much going on with me at that time, that that movie being picked apart was not at the top of my list of concerns
Because I had such a fraught relationship with the public, and the media, and journalists, and I was struggling so much at that time in general, this didn’t stand out as a particularly painful moment, it was just part of the mix.”
I realized in filming that scene… that was really reflective of what I felt like my relationship with the movie studios at that point. Because I felt like that’s what they were willing to do. To literally leave me to die.”
She also admitted:
“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.”
