ACTRESS Megan Fox has been on our screens since 2004 when she played Sydney Shanowski on popular sitcom Hope & Faith.
But it wasn’t until 2007’s Transformers that the Tennessee native, 34, was truly thrust into the spotlight and then a plethora of leading roles followed suit which made her a bonafide star.
Megan Fox revealed that she has struggled with OCD all her life
Despite playing courageous women on screen, which cinema audiences loved her for, the A-lister has revealed that she has struggled with OCD all her life.
In a 2010 interview with Allure, the Jennifer’s Body star, who recently split from husband Brian Austin Green and hooked up with new co-star Machine Gun Kelly, discussed how her illness affected her daily life.
Speaking to the magazine at the time about her mental health, she explained that she had sworn off using public bathrooms and refused to use restaurant silverware for fear of where it had been.
“I’m never doing that again. Every time someone uses a bathroom and they flush, all the bacteria is sH๏τ into the air.
She continued about bringing her own silverware to restaurants: “Putting my mouth where a million other mouths have been, just knowing all the bacteria that you carry in your mouth? Ucch!”
Aside from her OCD, the movie star previously admitted that she is such a terrible cook that she would rather “starve to death” that ever eat any food she has prepared. “I’ll starve to death before I’ll cook for myself. I think I could survive a week without eating,” she shared.

After welcoming her first two sons; Noah, seven, and Bodhi, six, the screen siren appeared to have a change of heart. Although Megan reiterated her disdain for day-to-day cooking, she said she enjoyed preparing meals for the holidays.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star told PEOPLE.com in 2014: “I really love cooking for the holidays, and I always try and do something challenging.
“But on a day-to-day basis, it’s not my thing.”
Megan married Brian Austin Green in 2010 but in the same year said she could go a week without speaking to another person
Despite getting married to Brian Austin Green in 2010, Megan said at the time that she was convinced she could go a week without speaking to another person.
The mother-of-three would have been at the height of her Transformers fame when she made the revelation and was no doubt inundated with fan and media requests.
Yet, it seems that Megan still shares the same sentiment as her now ex Brian, 46, revealed that the actress told him she was happier being alone after nearly a decade of marriage.
Speaking on his podcast, …with Brian Austin Green, last month, the 90210 actor shared: “She said, ‘You know, I realized while I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself, and I liked myself better during that experience, and I think that maybe something worth trying for me’.
“And, I was shocked, and I was upset about it, but I can’t be upset at her, and I wasn’t upset at her because that’s, she didn’t ask to feel that way, it wasn’t a choice she made, that’s the way she honestly felt.”
It was announced that Megan and Brian split following 10 years of marriage but remained committed to co-parenting their three sons.
Since then, the brunette beauty has been spotted with her Midnight in the Switchgrᴀss co-star Machine Gun Kelly, 30. The pair confirmed their romance this week after they were seen kissing and holding hands in Los Angeles.
