'Transformers' star Meghan Fox has accused Hollywood feminists of abandoning her in a new interview. As Fox News reports:

Megan Fox revealed she suffered a breakdown after her 2009 film "Jennifer's Body" was critically panned and bombed at the box office.

Fox, 33, says that the press and the public seemed to be on a mission to destroy her for the film's failure, but she barely noticed because she was being attacked for so much else, including her outspoken nature (like when she compared "Transformers" director Michael Bay to Hitler) and being highly sexualized from a young age in the glaring spotlight of Hollywood...

The actress previously said she had several #MeToo moments but didn't publicize them for fear of not being the "perfect victim." She says she went into somewhat of a hiding place after "Jennifer's Body" to protect herself and heal — and that she didn't feel supported by feminists during her dark period.

"Even though I consider myself a feminist, I feel like feminists don't want me to be a part of their group," she said. "What is supporting other females if there is only certain ones of us we support? If I have to be an academic or have to be non-threatening to you in some way? Why can't I be a part of the group as well?"

Fox went on to say that it was motherhood that was her 'saving grace,' but that being a mother also actively hurt her career.
