Megan Fox feels excluded from the #MeToo movement because she isn’t a ‘sympathetic victim’

Megan Fox has revealed that despite having “quite a few stories” that relate to the #MeToo movement, she will not share based off her past experiences with speaking out. 

During an interview with The New York Times, Fox, 32, opened up about being “victim-shamed” for her past efforts to call out the treatment and hyper-sexualization of women in Hollywood. 

The former “Transformers” star stirred controversy more than a decade ago after saying director Michael Bay, who Fox compared to “Hitler,” commanded her to “just be sexy” and “be Hot” on set. Fox also spoke out about being sexualized in Bay’s 2003 film “Bad Boys II,” where she danced in a bikini and high heels under a waterfall when she was only 15 (“I just did what I was told to do”),

Fox’s revelations would have likely been met with a different response nowadays compared to what she received in 2009, where the actress was ultimately fired from the “Transformers” franchise after two films for her remarks.
