In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Megan Fox opened up about suffering a "psychological break down" back in 2009. The actress revealed that around the time Jennifer's Body was released, she found herself consistently being sexualized in films and media.
She explained, "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. It preceded a breaking point for me."
She continued, "I think I had a genuine psychological breakdown where I wanted just nothing to do/ I didn't want to be seen, I didn't want to have to take a photo, do a magazine, walk a carpet, 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. I went through a very dark moment after that."
Megan revealed that having her first child Noah turned things around for her. She explained, "I think it took getting pregnant — that was the first real breakthrough where my consciousness shifted and my mind opened up and I was able to see from a birds-eye view and breath and take it in. And then another kid, and then another kid and with every kid, I feel like that's always been the doorway into a better version of myself."
Megan and Brian Austin Green share three kids, Noah, Bodhi and Journey.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Barbash said about the film, "Everyone has been asking, ‘Did I see the movie?' So I thought, Why don't I just see the movie—because I knew I was going to have a lot of interviews about it this week. I wasn't really that impressed."
She continued, "I was impressed with Jennifer. She was incredible. Her body looked incredible. She had it down to a T, but it wasn't factual."
She added, "She had my birthmark that I have. I used to have a piercing on the top of my lip. She had it on the bottom. She had a tattoo on her finger. I had it on my wrist."

But just because Cardi was in the business."
According to Time, Barbash and Keo were eventually charged with two counts of conspiracy, four counts of grand larceny, two counts of assault and three counts of forgery. Both were sentenced to five years probation.Read More »
