With a life full of fame, fashion, and cash, it's hard to imagine that celebs can suffer from insecurities just like the rest of us. But in a recent interview with GQ, Megan Fox opened up about some of her struggles with self-love.

Even with close to 17 million followers on Instagram and a title as the sexiest woman alive, Megan Fox had a lot to share about the struggles of living in the public eye and unwanted attention. "Yeah, I have body dysmorphia," the 35-year-old actress confessed. "I have a lot of deep insecurities." The successful actress went on to explain that, although everything may look perfect from the outside, we didn't really know what was going on emotionally. "We may look at somebody and think, 'That person's so beautiful. Their life must be so easy.' They most likely don't feel that way about themselves," the Jennifer's Body star explained.

In fact, Megan pointed to her star role in the 2009 thriller as the moment where everything changed. As she put it, the press she received after the project was a "breaking point" for her emotionally. "It wasn't just that movie, it was every day of my life, all the time, with every project I worked on and every producer I worked with," she had previously explained to Entertainment Tonight. "It preceded a breaking point for me." And while many expected the up-and-coming star to want to bask in her Jennifer's Body success, Megan felt like she wanted to hide from it all.

"I didn't want to be seen, I didn't want to have to take a photo, do a magazine, walk a red carpet," Fox confessed. "I didn't want to be seen in public at all because of the fear, and the belief, and the absolute certainty that I was going to be mocked, or spat at, or someone was going to yell at me, or people would stone me or savage me for just being out." It didn't take long for Megan to feel she'd hit rock bottom, adding "I went through a very dark moment aver that."
