Megan Fox recounts her depression after Jennifer’s Body

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  .
