Megan Fox Speaks About Feeling Bullied By the Press: 'I Felt Sort of Powerless'

Megan Fox is looking stunning modeling lingerie on the cover of Style Verify‘s new issue.

Here’s what the 31-year-old actress – who is launching her Fredericks of Hollywood lingerie collection being launched at Forever 21 – had to share with the mag…

On negativity from the media: “I think there has definitely been several times I felt bullied by press or by people in general. People like to twist my own narrative and use it against me. I felt sort of powerless in expressing myself no matter how hard I tried to be genuine or to be who I was. It was always misconstrued or changed in order to garner more drama and attention through tabloid media and so on. I felt discouraged in that way because I felt like I don’t know how to be or live in this industry and have to do interviews. That’s a part of what we do… when every time I open my mouth no matter how positive my intentions are ‘it becomes something scandalous or something negative’ and then I get torn apart for it.”

On how she’s overcome these obstacles: “I think that it took a lot of ‘soul searching’ but I had to be able to maintain a bird’s eye view to get clarity and to have some objectivity so that you can step away from it and you don’t personalize it so much. You start to look at things that seem like obstacles or blocks or attacks as something you’ve brought to yourself as lessons-lessons that your ego and personality needs to learn. When you look at it that way, it removes the victimhood from a lot of this and it then gives you your power back because you no longer feel like someone is doing something to you. You realize that you’ve brought this to yourself for a reason and that it’s going to have a positive outcome because now your perspective has changed.”
