    Megan Fox suffered a "psychological breakdown" after the backlash from 'Jennifer's Body'

    The 33-year-old actress has opened up on how being sexualised and objectified was "part of the mix" throughout her career, and after she worked on the 2009 horror comedy things took a turn.


    She told 'Entertainment Tonight': "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.

    "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."

    Although Megan did try to speak out at the time, she has suggested her complaints came too soon for the #MeToo movement and she still doesn't think there is "a space in feminism" for her.

    She explained: "Even though I consider myself a feminist, I feel like feminists don't want me to be a part of their group.

    "What is supporting other females if there is only certain ones of us we support? If I have to be an academic or have to be non-threatening to you in some way? Why can't I be a part of the group as well?"

    A decade later, Megan has three sons - Noah, Bodhi and Journey - with her husband Brian Austin Green, and while being a mother has changed her own perspective, she doesn't think the industry's view has developed in the same way.

    She added: "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."
