The actress has had many of her performances maligned by critics in the past, but Megan has now said she feels criticism about her acting ability caused a bandwagon of absolute toxicity to be lunched against her.
She recently saw one of her old movies being played on television, and although she didn’t name the film, she admitted that whilst watching it back she realised it didn’t deserve the harsh criticism it received when it was released.
When she saw the film she started getting really angry and wondered why she had lived for a decade thinking that she wasn't good at something when actually she was pretty decent at it?
"That led to this realisation that I'd been in a self-imposed prison for so much of my life,” she says on Refinery29. Despite bouncing back, Megan wishes more people would understand how impactful words can be.
“We have to be careful with our words - they're powerful. That's something I wish most people would understand. We live in a culture where it's a game to be the most hateful, to get the most attention. It's not funny.”
