Megan Fox said she worried she wouldn’t be seen as a “sympathetic victim” so she kept quiet about “quite a few stories” during the heat of the #MeToo movement.

“I didn’t speak out for many reasons. I just didn’t think based on how I’d been received by people, and by feminists, that I would be a sympathetic victim,” the 32-year-old actress revealed to the New York Times in an article published Friday.

Fox said that she has "quite a few stories" she could have told as legions of women and men in Hollywood were inspired to come forward about their own experiences within the industry after accusations against Harvey Weinstein opened the floodgates in the fall of 2017.

Fox has previously opened up about uncomfortable moments in her career. In a 2009 interview with Wonderland magazine, she said she became frustrated with Transformers director Michael Bay when he directed her to "be hot" or to "be sexy" on set. In that same interview, Fox said that Bay "wants to be like Hitler on his sets," which drew controversy and overshadowed her comments about Bay's questionable directives.

Later that year, Fox said in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel that on the set of Bad Boys II, when she was only 15 years old, that Bay ordered her to dance under a waterfall while wearing a bikini and six-inch heels.

Because of how her comments were received nearly a decade ago, Fox said she was scared to be an active participant in today's cultural climate charged with female empowerment. She also suggested that her previous statements might have been "ahead of my time."

"I don’t know if there will ever be a time where I’m considered normal or relatable or likable."
