Megan Fox has opened up about her experiences with body dysmorphia.

Megan Fox has opened up about her struggles with body dysmorphia and said she has never loved her body.

The 36-year-old Transformers star recently took part in an interview for Sports Illustrated’s 2023 swimsuit edition where she gave an honest answer about how she views her body.

The actor has previously spoken about having 'deep insecurities' and while some people may assume her life is 'easy' because she's considered 'beautiful', it's not always the case.

In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, the Hollywood star also delved into where her body dysmorphia stems from.

Megan Fox opened up about her experiences with body dysmorphia.

“I have body dysmorphia,” she said. “I don’t ever see myself the way other people see me.”

While Fox is often regarded as a sex symbol in Hollywood, the cover model revealed she has never actually felt comfortable in her own skin though it is something she is working on as an adult.

“There is never a point in my life where I loved my body, never ever,” she said during the photoshoot for the brand, which took place in the Dominican Republic.

The mum-of-three said she has always been critical of her image and had an ‘awareness’ and ‘obsession’ with her body ever since she was little.

However, the Jennifer’s Body actor said her body dysmorphia struggles do not stem from childhood.

“Why I had an awareness of my body that young, I’m not sure, and it definitely wasn’t environmental because I grew up in a very religious environment where bodies were not even acknowledged.”

Fox previously spoke about body dysmorphia in a joint interview with Machine Gun Kelly.

She continued: “The journey of loving myself is going to be never ending, I think.”

Fox said she has ‘a lot of deep insecurities’ during in a joint interview with her partner Machine Gun Kelly in 2021.

“Yeah, I have body dysmorphia. I have a lot of deep insecurities,” Fox shared with British GQ Style.

“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 reflected.

Earlier this year, Fox and the ‘Emo Girl’ rapper sparked split rumours after she deleted all her pictures of her partner on Instagram.

In February Fox posted several photos of herself posing in a bathroom and captioned the post with lyrics from Beyoncé’s song ‘Pray You Catch Me’, the opening track on her 2016 album Lemonade.

The Transformers actor released a statement about the cheating allegations.

Because the ground-breaking album delved into Jay-Z’s infidelity, fans thought Fox was telling he world that MGK cheated on her but she returned to the social media platform days later and set the record straight.

In a statement written in her notes and shared to her feed, Fox dismissed the cheating rumours as she said there has been 'no third party interference in this relationship of any kind'.

"That includes, but is not limited to… actual humans, DMs, AI bots, or succubus demons," she wrote.

Fox continued: “While I do hate to rob you of running random baseless news stories that would have been much more accurately written by ChatGPT, you need to let this story die and leave all of these innocent people alone now.”
