Megan Fox has revealed that her eight-year-old son has been bullied online for wearing dresses.

The Jennifer's Body star opened up about the issue in a new interview with InStyle.

Along with ex-husband Brian Austin Green, the star - soon to be seen in the new horror movie Til Death - is a parent to three kids: Bodhi, four, Noah, seven, and Journey, eight.

"I don't want him to ever have to read that shit"

Speaking about the online abuse, the 35-year-old told the publication: "I don't want him to ever have to read that shit because he hears it from little kids at his own school who are like, 'Boys don't wear dresses.'"

The star called the trolls "mean, awful people and cruel people."

Elsewhere in the interview, Megan discussed kissing Oscar-nominee Amanda Seyfried in Jennifer's Body

"That was a real thing that goes on with teenage girls that are discovering their sexuality, and sometimes that's discovering that they love other girls," she said.

"It's not like that [kissing] scene was even particularly sexual for men. It was more so for any woman who's ever thought, 'I really love my best friend, and I don't necessarily know what that means, but I'm going to figure it out.'" 

Megan is also known for roles in the Transformers franchise and Rogue.
