Megan Fox has shared a jaw-dropping bikini pic on Insta just weeks after revealing in an interview that she struggles with her own body image.
The Transformers star opened up about her experience with a body dysmorphia and the challenges she has had embracing her appearance.
"There's never a point in my life where I loved my body, never, ever," she confessed in a video for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2023. "I don't ever see myself the way other people see me."
Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), or body dysmorphia, is a mental health condition which sees people spend a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance.
These flaws are often unnoticeable to others.
The 36-year-old also recalled that at a younger age, she had an 'obsession' on how she was supposed to look.
"When I was little, that was an obsession I had of but I should look this way," she said. "And why I had an awareness of my body that young I'm not sure. The journey of loving myself is going to be never-ending."
Fox shared a photo of herself lying down while rocking a strapless black cut out bikini, captioning her post: "ace of cups + the star."
Commenting on the pic, one fan said: "she could cheat on me i would say sorry and beg for her to stay."
Another added: "She’s gonna be 70 and still look like this I love her."
And a third wrote: "She been fine my whole life."
Although, someone else thought: "She says she’s so insecure about her body but then she shows a picture of her body, I’m confused she looks great though not sure why she would be insecure."
While another fan, who experiences the same condition, explained: "As someone who also suffers from body dysmorphia. I post things like this too.
"Although we don’t believe the compliments we get we also put ourselves out there like this as a way to try and heal from the constant battle we are fighting with ourselves every day."
Also last month, we witnessed the return of Fox and fiancé Machine Gun Kelly, who attended the Sports Illustrated issue launch together amidst rumours of their break up.
Speculation first emerged that their relationship had hit troubled waters following allegations that MGK had been unfaithful to Fox.
However, Fox has since clarified that there had not been any 'third-party interference' in the relationship.
