Megan Fox, who recently dubbed Donald Trump a legend,’ has revealed that she was encouraged to act and dress ‘less sexy’ at the beginning of her career.
The 35-year-old recalled the time she was ‘famous and not happy about it’ during a chat with Who What Wear.
On the fashion magazine’s YouTube channel, she said: “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.”

She continued: “I got invited to some weird LA fashion show. 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.”
The mum-of-three then explained that she’d always been made to feel she had to ‘look a certain way’ when in the limelight.
Referencing her role in Jennifer’s Body, Fox explained: “Everyone wanted me to look like a movie star so that I could land this role.
“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.”
Despite not having a glamorised view of Hollywood, the actress praised her current stylist, Maeve Reilly, as she doesn’t make her dress ‘conservatively’.
“I like Maeve because she’s not that way,” Fox explained. “She has a really good eye, and I like the fact she’s not afraid. She’s not trying to hide me.”
Recently, Fox also described the start of her career as being ‘misogynistic hell’.
She said: “That was a microcosm of my whole life and whole interaction with Hollywood. It was just very dark.
“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.
