Megan Fox Was “Mentally Suffering” During A Creepy Jimmy Kimmel Interview

Highlights

  • Megan Fox speaks out about how men have shaped her personal life and career in her poetry book, Pretty Boys Are Poisonous.
  • Fox faced backlash after speaking up about her experiences with Michael Bay and Jimmy Kimmel, highlighting the misogynistic culture of Hollywood.
  • Despite enduring criticism and ridicule, Fox continues to advocate for change and shed light on the dehumanizing effects of early fame.

Recently, Megan Fox released a poetry book called Pretty Boys Are Poisonous where she breaks her silence on how men have shaped her personal life and career. In the summer of 2009, the actress supposedly “trashed” Transformers director, Michael Bay by saying “he wants to create this insane, infamous mad man reputation.” She was then fired from the movie’s third installment and was blacklisted from Hollywood.

Shortly before that, a “mentally suffering” Fox claimed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that Bay made her do a daring bar scene at the age of 15. Kimmel – who made a creepy drawing of them together – didn’t seem to care about the disturbing story. Over a decade later, the clapback queen of body shamers said she “got ridiculed” for speaking up during those pre-#MeToo days.

The One Scene In Megan Fox’s Hollywood Career That Caused Her A “Psychological Breakdown”

Megan Fox is now praised by fans of this thriller, but the film received a mixed reception when it was first released.

Megan Fox “Mentally Suffered” Seeing Jimmy Kimmel’s Creepy Drawing Of Them Together

In June 2009, Fox gave Kimmel a drawing she made of a jacked version of him. The actress left a note on it as well. “To Jimmy… You angel of a man. You’re the best. All my love xo,” it said. The host also had a drawing prepared. “Am I touching your p*nis?” Fox asked before Kimmel showed his work to her. “You are now,” he quipped as he pretended to add something to the drawing.

He then revealed the image where a hairy monster version of him is French-kissing Fox under the bed covers. “Here’s my picture of us together, and I think this just captures our relationship,” the comedian quipped.

“You’ve got your tongue out and I’ve got my tongue out there,” Kimmel said of his creepy drawing of him and Fox together. “You can see my body hair is at full attention. What do you think of that?”

The Jennifer’s Body star didn’t acknowledge the nature of the drawing and complimented Kimmel’s skills instead. “You did it with inks and everything. I’m impressed. I did it with a pen. You did it for real,” she said. However, fans came to her defense. “That drawing is so weird wtf was he thinking he clearly had no respect,” someone wrote in the YouTube comments.

Another one noted that “Megan [looks] uncomfortable […] this [is] before [#MeToo].” And in making light of the situation, a fan wrote: “Idk why but women who are beautiful and look like they’re mentally suffering just a tad is attractive to me.”

Megan Fox recently said she had “several abusive relations” with “very famous” men people never knew she was involved with.

During the interview, Fox also told Kimmel that Bay made her dance in a racy bikini outfit “underneath a waterfall” when she was 15 for Bad Boys II (2003). “They were shooting this club scene and they brought me in and I was wearing a stars and stripes bikini and a red cowboy hat and six-inch heels,” recalled the Till Death star.

“He approved it and they said, ‘Michael, she’s 15 so you can’t sit her at the bar and she can’t have a drink in her hand,’” Fox said of Bay’s disturbing choice.

“So his solution to that problem was to then have me dancing underneath a waterfall getting soaking wet,” Fox continued. “At 15, I was in 10th grade. That’s kind of a microcosm of how Bay’s mind works.” The audience laughed with Kimmel as he responded: “Yeah, well that’s really a microcosm of how all our minds work.”

Netizens later slammed him for adding that “some of us have the decency to repress those thoughts and pretend that they don’t exist.” Someone wrote in the comments: “‘Most of us have the decency to suppress those thoughts’ uhh clearly Jimmy didn’t with that drawing.” Shortly after the interview, Fox’s early fame swiftly came to an end.

In April 2022, Fox addressed how “misogynistic” Hollywood was back in 2009. “I think that I was ahead of the #MeToo movement by almost a decade,” she told Glamour UK at that time. “I was always speaking out against some of the abusive, misogynistic, patriarchal things that were going on in Hollywood back in 2008 and 2009, way before people were ready to embrace that or tolerate it. And I actually got ridiculed for doing it.”

But when her interviews resurfaced in 2020, Fox clarified that in her “direct experiences with Michael and Steven [Spielberg],” she “was never assaulted or preyed upon in what I felt was a sexual manner.”

Reflecting on her early fame, she said it didn’t allow her “to be a human, because I was a topic of conversation and gossip and punch lines.” She added that she felt excluded from the #MeToo movement because she isn’t a “sympathetic victim.” She explained: “I don’t know if the psychological breakdown was strictly related to being objectified, it was more related to just being dehumanized and criticized and judged constantly.”
