For nearly twenty years, Megan Fox has been one of the world's biggest actresses and models.
But in a recent interview with Who What Wear, the 35 year old has admitted she has struggled dealing with fame and fashion throughout her career.
The conversation can be viewed on the fashion magazine's YouTube channel and sees Fox look back at different chapters of her life.
When faced with a photo of her at an event in Los Angeles in the early 2000s, she says it encapsulates a time when she was 'famous and not happy about it.'
"I got invited to some weird LA fashion show," she explained. "And I did not care. I was famous and not happy about it.
I was battling my own demons psychologically. I wasn't really worried about fashion at that moment."
Later in the interview, Fox was critical of how the fashion and film industries tried to dictate how she looked during her first few years in the limelight, saying that 'everyone wanted (her) to look a certain way.'
"Everyone wanted me to look like a movie star so that I could land this role," she said when asked about her role in the cult comedy horror film Jennifer's Body. "I resent people trying to tell me how to look, or act, or speak. I'm much better at it now.
But at this point, if you tried to push me in a certain direction, I would go the opposite way."
However, for all of her criticisms of Hollywood, Fox was quick to praise her current stylist Maeve Reilly, who she believes goes against the trend of dressing actresses in ways that are 'usually more conservative'.
"I like Maeve because she's not that way," Fox continued. "She has a really good eye, and I like the fact she's not afraid. She's not trying to hide me.
People were trying to hide me and make me less sexy so that I could be taken more seriously. I just want to look right."
Looking forward, Fox seems much more optimistic, particularly when talking about her boyfriend, the rapper Machine Gun Kelly. She says he has been a real source of inspiration, particularly when it comes to her fashion.
"Usually I build my outfit around whatever he's choosing," she said. "He's way more into fashion than I am, and his closet is wild.
It's easier for me to build around him."
