Movie siren Megan Fox says that she gets hurt every time she is called a sex symbol. She told the Daily Star Sunday: “The attention, that other people are telling you that you are beautiful, only feeds insecurities and sort of makes it unbearable.”

The Transformers beauty also admitted that she regularly smokes cannabis and has therapy to help her beat the sex demons that have tormented her since childhood. Fox blames her ultra-strict religious upbringing for her deep insecurities.

She said: “I was raised Pentecostal, which is one of the most extreme denominations of Christianity that exists. Everything is evil and wrong and will send you to hell. “So I had lots of talks about how sex was evil, sex was bad.”

However, she said that her role in her new film Jennifer’s Body had helped. She plays a teen who becomes a man-eater after being possessed by a sex-mad spirit.

She admitted: “I get to exorcise my demons through her. She has really deep, unfriendly insecurities which I can relate to.” And when asked how she escapes her torment at home, she said: “I usually smoke weed and watch Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.”
