Megan Fox, who is considered one of the most beautiful and sexiest women in the world has recently declared that she does not feel that way. In fact, the American actress opened her feelings about the topic and revealed that she feels completely the opposite about her own.

During a joint GQ interview with her beau Machine Gun Kelly, the bombshell explains that she does not feel as perfect as everyone has said she looks. "I have body dysmorphia. I have a lot of deep insecurities," the 35-year-old star said.


Megan did not go into much detail, but she explains why no one should assume what others might be thinking. "We may look at somebody and think, 'That person's so beautiful. Their life must be so easy.' They most likely don't feel that way about themselves," she told the outlet.

In fact, Fox is very aware that because she has been caged with the label as 'sexy,' over the years she has not shown to the world the other sides of her personality. Megan said. “The parts of me that were always eccentric or strange and didn’t belong within my own family unit or within Hollywood.”

However, Megan Fox also admits that meeting Machine Gun Kelly and being together has helped her to be herself. “You know, famously, like, I’m an unusual person. And I had buried a lot of that because it didn’t have a place to live,” she revealed. “That’s something that, meeting him, it’s like meeting your own soul’s reflection.”

According to the Cleveland Clinic, an estimated 5 million to 10 million people in the US have body dysmorphia, though the numbers may be higher since many individuals refrain from receiving an official diagnosis.

While this might come as a surprise for some fans, this is not the first time Megan Fox speaks about her mental health. Back in 2019, she revealed to ET that she reached a breaking point after being sexualized by the media for so many years. She did not want to be seen or to take photos with fans or go to red carpets because of how she felt.

“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 … so I went through a very dark moment after that."

Thankfully, all of this has changed since the actress revealed to GQ British that she has worked a lot to stop being a victim and realize that it was a lesson “So there was purpose in it and I didn't have to suffer anymore. It's made me grow into a much more interesting human being than I would have been without that," she said.
