Megan Fox said she went to "hell" after drinking ayahuasca on a recent trip to Costa Rica with Machine Gun Kelly.
Fox recounted the experience during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night (July 12), explaining that the pair flew to the Central American country to drink the psychoactive tea in "a proper setting, with indigenous people." Per Page Six, the tea can cause auditory and visual hallucinations and is said to be helpful in treating conditions like anxiety and trauma.
The trip started off with a shock as the Jennifer's Body star thought the location they went to, known for catering to celebrities, would be a bit more glamorous; however, that's not what they experienced.
"So I was thinking it was like glamping, like it was gonna be some kind of five-star experience," she said. Instead, she found herself in the middle of the jungle, unable to shower and having to walk far distances to get water. "There was nothing glamorous about it, and it's all a part of making you vulnerable, so you sort of surrender to the experience."
Fox and MGK joined a group of about 20 people for a three-day ceremony that began with each person drinking lemongrass tea and vomiting. Though the couple was skeptical at first, the Transformers star ultimately called it a "good bonding experience."
During day two, Fox said she experienced a hallucination where she went to hell for an eternity, calling it an "ego death."
"Just knowing it's eternity is torture in itself, because there's no beginning, middle or end," she said, adding that it did more than therapy as it "goes straight into your soul, and it takes you to the psychological prison that you hold yourself in."
She continued, "It's your own version of hell, and I was definitely there."
