"And then suddenly everybody's like, 'Wait a second. We shouldn't have done that. Let's bring her back.'"
By that point in her career, the damage was already done. She shared, "I had to armor up so much inside myself and I had to be so tough to have to process this really crazy-heavy price for what I thought was doing the right thing."
Megan explained that she made a decision to protect herself, which led to being closed off from the world.
"I had to adopt a belief system that only I was going to take care of myself and be there for myself because I was constantly going to be outcast or rejected," she said.
Only recently has she come to terms with the unfair standards put on her, which helped her enter this brand-new phase of her career and life.
"I had this incredible breakthrough, and I realized that I had been living in a self-imposed prison for so long because I let other people tell me who I was or what I wasn't," she revealed. "I hid because I was hurt."
All the drama and hate has only caused her to grow stronger, and she's using it all as fuel for the next chapter of her life. So expect to see her face back on the big screen a lot more.
"I won't lie, I do want to find a Marvel or a DC character that I've always wanted to play, and do one of those," she said.
It may not be the expected next move for the star, but then again, she's all about breaking people's expectations these days.
