Megan Fox likens her career to a ‘witch hunt’

Throughout her career, Megan Fox has been entangled in her fair share of controversy.

The actress has publicly feuded with directors, politicians and even the court of public opinion on social media, with the intention of speaking her truth. Fox is first to acknowledge her time as an actress has not been a cakewalk.

“I’ve been in the public eye for a long time and my career has been one long witch hunt,” the actress told People magazine.

Fox is shifting away from acting, having just written a book called “Pretty Boys Are Poisonous: Poems.” She says the public’s perception of her is what makes stepping into new waters easier, noting, “I expect a mixture of admiration and vitriol from the public.”

Her collection of poems are not for the faint of heart, with many exploring dark themes. “It comes from a lot of places,” she says of the book’s contents. “Some of it is literal, while other parts are allegorical. Some poems contain a Grimm’s-fairy-tale-type element, and others serve the same purpose as memes in online culture.”
