Naging honest si Megan Fox na naranasan niyang psychological breakdown dahil sa pag-hypersexualize ng Hollywood sa kanyang image.
Na-open up ni Fox ang naranasan niyang trauma sa kanyang interview with Entertainment Tonight noong i-celebrate ang 10th anniversary ng kanyang pinagbidahan na dark comedy/horror film na Jennifer's Body.
“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 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.”
Kasama sa nakapagbigay ng trauma kay Fox ay noong magsalita siya sa hindi magandang trato sa kanya ng film director na si Michael Bay noong ginagawa nila ang pelikulang Transformers.
Ito ay nangyari 12 years bago pa nagkaroon ng #MeToo movement sa Hollywood.
Sey ni Megan: "Michael Bay's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is."
Pakiramdam ng aktres ay walang tumugon sa kanyang reklamo at nag-suffer pa ang kanyang career noong magsalita siya laban kay Bay. Tinawag pa siya sa media na "Ms. Sourpants," "dumb-as-a-rock," and an actress who would likely wind up "a porn star in the future." She was also "thankless, classless, graceless" and "never smiles."
“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–k you. We don’t care, you deserve it.’ Because everybody talked about how you looked or how you dressed or the jokes you made.”
Naging disappointment din ni Fox ay ang kakulangan ng interesting women roles na binibigay sa kanya. Karamihan daw ng mga roles ay kailangan magpakita siya ng hubad niyang katawan at hindi naka-focus sa acting na puwedeng niyang ipabigay.
"You have these stereotypes that still dominate films: the nag, the trophy, the escort. I haven't been sent a nag script yet, but I do get plenty of, like, 'interesting stripper.'"
Noong magkaroon ng sariling pamilya si Fox with husband Brian Austin Green, doon lang daw siya nakaramdam na maging normal ulit.
“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 bird’s-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.”
Tatlo ang naging anak nila Fox at Green na sina Noah, Journey and Bodhi.
Fox made her screen debut in the 2004 comedy film, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen with Lindsay Lohan. She went on to do other films such as Tranformers, Transformer: Revenge of the Fallen, Whore, Jennifer's Body, Jonah Hex, Friends With Kids, The Dictator, This Is 40, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
On TV, she came out in numerous series such as Ocean Ave., What I Like About You, Two and a Half Men, Hope & Faith, and New Girl.
