The popular actress Megan Fox has recently made a sad admission. She said that there was “never a point in my life where I loved my body,” according to Sports Illustrated. In her interview with the magazine after posing for its swimsuit issue, Fox addressed her body dysmorphia.
The famous actress worked with photographer Greg Swales for the cover. She says that as the session went on, she became more and more comfortable, but mentioned that she went into the experience with an open mind.
After the shoot, Fox said that she had an “obsession” and “awareness” of her body from a young age, but discounted her environment as the problem because she grew up in a religious family where the body was not visible. The “Transformers” actress said that she has a desire for people to notice her “aura” instead of her body, noting that her aura is “rainbow” and “special.”
Fox brought up the fact that she is a mother of three and posing for the swimsuit issue of the magazine was not easy. But the magazine has worked to try to bring together an inclusive number of women, including the 80-year-old Martha Stewart and Kim Petras, a biological male who calls himself a “transgender woman.”
MJ Day, the editor-in-chief of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit said that the mission for this year was to elicit “thought-provoking conversations.” Day critiqued the beauty industry for how it conceives beauty and said that this issue was designed to put the leading women of today in it and shape the future. Day continued to compliment Fox and said that she remained strong against an industry that objectifies her.
Since rising to fame in 2007 for her role in Transformers, Fox went on to star in “Jennifer’s Body” (2009) and the” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series.
