Beautiful actress Megan Fox, star of the Transformers movies, gives a revealing interview to Wonderland magazine in the U.K. In it she discusses serious insecurities and body image issues she has with herself and also talks about how she’s fascinated with Marilyn Monroe. Fox says she fears meeting with an end similar to her idol.
“I basically read every book ever written about Marilyn Monroe,” she says. “I could end up like that because I constantly struggle with the idea that I think I’m a borderline personality—or that I have bouts of mild schizophrenia. I definitely have some kind of mental problem and I haven’t pinpointed what it is.”
Hopefully, Megan Fox will receive the help she needs. Marilyn did seek treatment for her ailments although she lived only to 36 years of age. Treatment and medications are much better now, however, than they were during Marilyn’s day.For the record, Marilyn did not suffer from schizophrenia. She had “manic depression,” which is now called bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is characterized by abnormal mood elevations (mania) and extreme depressions, like a rollercoaster. Often there are periods classified as normal in between, which appears to be Marilyn's pattern.
