Megan Fox has revealed that the beginning of her career was ‘misogynistic hell’.

In an interview with The Washington Post, the actress opened up about the ‘very dark’ world of Hollywood.

She said: “That was a microcosm of my whole life and whole interaction with Hollywood. It was just very dark.”

She added: “I was so lost and trying to understand, like, how am I supposed to feel value or find purpose in this horrendous, patriarchal, misogynistic hell that was Hollywood at the time.

“Because I had already been speaking out against it and everyone, including other women, received me in a very negative way for doing it.”

The 35-year-old admitted that she also started to feel like she was becoming a typecast, alongside Lindsay Lohan and Kaley Cuoco, as all her characters were ‘essentially the exact same,’ with ‘interchangeable’ lines.

As a result, Fox was concerned that people would be under the impression that all along, she was just playing herself.

She explained: “I think there has been a pervasive perception of me as a shallow succubus, if that makes any sense, for at least the first decade of my career.

“And then that started to change more recently as people revisited some of my interviews, listened to me speak and started to see me in a different way.”

Further on in the chat, the mum-of-three recalled a 2009 interview she had with Jimmy Kimmel for his show.

When talking to the presenter, she opened up about how she’d been sexualised at just 15 years old when on the set of Bad Boys 2. But instead of people expressing concern, the actress was shocked as everyone seemed to find it amusing.
