Los Angeles, April 29 (IANS): Actress Megan Fox spoke candidly about the “ridicule” she endured after speaking out against Hollywood misogyny early in her career.
The actor, who was speaking to Glamour UK, often spoke out about being objectified on Michael Bay sets, including one infamous ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ interview where she called out how creepy it was to have to dance in a bikini under a waterfall at age 15 while shooting a small part in ‘Bad Boys II’, reports ‘Variety’.
Fox said bringing attention to Hollywood misogyny long before the #MeToo movement only made her a bigger punchline. “I think that I was ahead of the #MeToo movement by almost a decade,” Fox said. “I was always speaking out against some of the abusive, misogynistic, patriarchal things that were going on in Hollywood back in 2008 and 2009, way before people were ready to embrace that or tolerate it. And I actually got ridiculed for doing it. I think people just have had time to review that, in retrospect.”
