Megan Fox has opened up about her body dysmorphia in a new interview. On Monday, Fox and her boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly graced British GQ Style to talk about their struggles and how these have helped them find love for each other.

“Yeah, I have body dysmorphia,” said Fox. “I have a lot of deep insecurities. 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,” she continued.

While the "Transformers" actress did not reveal how her disorder affects her, she said that her relationship with Machine Gun Kelly made her more comfortable with who she’s always been deep down, especially after struggling to find her place in her family and in Hollywood.

“I think I had either put myself in or allowed other people to put me in this weird box that didn’t quite fit me, where I hadn’t lived my own life as myself for a really long time—the parts of me that were always eccentric or strange and didn’t belong within my own family unit or within Hollywood,” she explained.

She said the only time she found what her heart had been searching for was when she met Machine Gun Kelly. "You know, famously, like, I’m an unusual person. And I had buried a lot of that because it didn’t have a place to live. That’s something that, meeting him, it’s like meeting your own soul’s reflection,” she said.

Fox explained that she recognized so much of herself in her boyfriend, and meeting him has helped her come to terms with that “locked-up part of me that I had put away.” “But then you meet the person that completes that for you and you’re like, ‘Oh, this is what my heart was searching for.' That’s what that beacon was this whole time,” she said.

For his part, Machine Gun Kelly described his relationship with Fox as his “ecstasy and agony.” “It should be light, but also we go to hell with each other,” the 31-year-old rapper said.
