Megan Fox says Hollywood can ‘tear’ you to pieces. Before her role in Transformers she had a regular role in the television sitcom Hope & Faith sends her thoughts to young actresses, starting out if in fact you have any insecurities or want to hear what people think, think think twice about this industry.
She also played a part in the black comedy horror film Jennifer’s Body says you need to have thick skin or showbiz will tear you apart. She reveals that for herself she found out fast about judgmental people in Hollywood, says she can handle it because she has always been strong. She told the New York Daily News newspaper:
”If you have an insecurity issue or if you seek validation through the opinions of others, this industry is not for you. It will tear you to pieces, and you will not survive.
”I think [fearlessness] is something you’re born with. Maybe not in all cases, but a lot of famous people that have made it have to be [strong].”
She however tries to keep away from the pressures of social media. The star, who is twenty eight years old has cut down on her career choice spending as much time with her two year old child Noah and Bodhi, five months, and being a step-mom to husband Brian Austin Green’s twelve year-old son Kassius. She added:
”I’ve never been somebody who gets on the Internet and reads about myself. It’s so damaging to the psyche and to your emotional well-being. I was never that aware of the Hollywood hierarchy.
”I mean, Twitter, there’s pressure to post an update several times a day – I’m much more private than that. I was on Twitter for five days, and I posted on my Facebook, and I was overwhelmed by it.”
