Megan Fox Admits She Has Body Dysmorphia: “There’s Never A Point Where I Loved My Body”

Megan Fox says that she suffers from body dysmorphia and has never been able to see herself the way others do. The actress discussed living with the condition during a new interview for Sports Illustrated. For her appearance on the cover, Fox rocked a swimsuit of gold coins and an intricate body chain while posing on the beach.

"I have body dysmorphia — I don't ever see myself the way other people see me," Fox told the outlet. "There's never a point in my life where I loved my body, never, ever." Fox appears as one of four cover stars of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit's 2023 issue. The others are Martha Stewart, Kim Petras, and Brooks Nader.

"When I was little, that was an obsession I had of, like, but I should look this way," Fox elaborated. "And why I had an awareness of my body that young I'm not sure, and it definitely wasn't environmental because I grew up in a very religious environment where bodies weren't even acknowledged. The journey of loving myself is going to be never-ending, I think."

Fox also spoke about the pressure of appearing in a swimsuit photoshoot. "Shooting Sports Illustrated Swimsuit is definitely a lot of pressure," she admitted. "I have a vision in my head that I'm trying to achieve, so we'll see if it pans out for me." She added: "What I most want people to know is that I'm a genuine soul who is hoping to actually belong to something and not always have to live as a misunderstood outcast."

Fox is currently engaged to Machine Gun Kelly; however, there have been rumors of hiccups in their relationship. Last month, Fox was reportedly a no-show at Kelly's 33rd birthday party. The two got engaged in early 2022.
