The 'Transformers' star - who is the face of Giorgio Armani's beauty, fragrance and skincare campaigns - admits she had an "abrasive" personality and didn't rate her looks during her teen years.
She told MIAMI magazine: "I was never the pretty girl. [As a teenager] I was abrasive and obnoxious and felt like a loner."
Megan - who is married to 'Beverly Hills, 90210' star Brian Austin Green - also enjoyed unpopular hobbies including archaeology which meant she couldn't integrate with the popular crowd.
Speaking of her fascination with history and possible government cover-ups, she said: "I would love to go on a dig. Come on! You don't think everything that's learned is released to the public, do you?"
