Megan Fox has “never” loved her own body and battles body dysmorphia.
The 37-year-old actress has discussed her struggles with body image and acknowledged that she doesn’t perceive herself as most people do.
She told the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue: “I have body dysmorphia. I don’t ever see myself really the way other people see me. There is never a point in my life where I loved my body. Never, ever.”
The ‘Jennifer’s Body’ star acknowledged that seeing herself as beautiful has been a “never-ending” process for her.
She added: “When I was little, that was like an obsession I had, that I should look THIS way.
“And why I had an awareness of my body that young, I’m not sure… The journey of loving myself is going to be never-ending, I think.”
Megan added that she wanted people to focus on her “aura” rather than her physical appearance when they first met her.
She said: “I wished everyone noticed my aura, because I have a rainbow aura, and it’s special.”
Megan asserted last summer, despite her lack of confidence, that she would have been “naked everywhere” in 2009 if it weren’t for the family-friendly “Transformers” film franchise’s executives forbidding her from disrobing.
She told the Evening Standard: “Peak fame for me was in 2009. It was during the second ‘Transformers’ press tour.
“I would’ve been naked everywhere back then, but that wasn’t something that was allowed.”
She also retaliated against other women who teased one another for attempting to seem seductive after giving birth, calling it evidence of a “patriarchal” culture that must be destroyed.
Megan, a mother of three who shares a 48-year-old ex-husband with boys Noah Shannon Green, 10, Bodhi Ransom Green, 9, and Journey River Green, 6, lashed out, saying: “What awful messaging for women to offer each other. What happens after you reach key life milestones and have children? Why should you no longer be seductive?
“You should be and feel more sexy than ever after you’ve given birth to a child.
“That is a very misogynistic, patriarchal idea that has been put on women that we need to shed.”
