Megan Fox says Hollywood is "Unforgiving" to working moms



Megan Fox opened up about the “weird pressure” she feels about being a working mother in Hollywood.
Fox is the mother of three children, aged 4 to 8.

“Hollywood is not adapted to women and us actually having lives and being moms. As an actor it’s just very unforgiving because you can’t be on camera once you’re past a certain stage of pregnancy. Once you have the baby it’s like, ‘Okay, well, you’re going to have to leave to nurse every two hours and that costs us money and insurance.'”

Then, after the baby arrives, actresses face a whole new level of pressure.
“There is that thing in this industry of like ‘Are you giving up? Are you just a mom now?' There’s this weird pressure which also then creates guilt. You go to work too soon to satisfy those people."

This is accompanied by the stress of getting back into pre-pregnancy shape.
"The problem is in your brain [while] you’re like delivering [your baby] and it’s like ‘OK, well I have to lose 30 pounds in eight weeks,' Those things are really stressful and you’re supposed to be bonding and nurturing yourself and nourishing your baby.”
