In a revealing Washington Post profile, Megan Fox opened up about motherhood and Hollywood. She says that she needed to step away from the “dark” of Hollywood to raise her kids and truly be happy.
Of Hollywood, she said: “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 welcomed her first child with her ex Brian Austin Green in 2012. “That kind of saved me honestly,” Fox explained of becoming a mother to sons Noah, 8, Bodhi, 7, and Journey, 4, all of whom she shares withthe Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, 47. “I needed an escape.”
