Megan Fox recounts going ‘to hell for eternity’ on hallucinogenic tea with Machine Gun Kelly

Actress Megan Fox “went to hell for eternity” drinking the hallucinogenic ayahuasca herb during a recent Costa Rica trip with boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.

“So we went to Costa Rica to do ayahuasca in a proper setting with Indigenous people,” Fox said of the psychoactive substance that’s used medicinally and in spiritual ceremonies.

She noted that she’d had no idea what she was getting into.

“I was thinking it was like glamping or something like that, still going to be like some kind of five-star experience,” she said, recounting the experience to Arsenio Hall, who was guest hosting “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” “And you get there and you really are in the middle of the jungle, and you don’t get to eat after 1 p.m. You have to walk a very far distance to get your water. You can’t shower because they’re in a drought, so you can’t use the water, obviously. You need to respect the rainforest. Nothing glamorous about it. It’s all a part of sort of making you vulnerable so that you surrender to the experience.”

The experience began with everyone — including the 35-year-old actress, the 31-year-old Kelly and 20 others — lining up and inducing vomiting.

After that icebreaker, “my vanity is gone, I’ve just done this in front of all of these strangers and now I’m ready to really open up,” the “Till Death” and “Transformers” star told Hall.

The full experience lasted three days and three nights, she said.

“Everybody’s journey is different, but on the second night, I went to hell for eternity,” Fox said. “Just knowing it’s eternity is torture in itself, because there’s no beginning, middle or end. So you have a real ego death.”

Her experiences sounded similar to those of others who have engaged in this version of self-discovery, as one account in Vox delineates. A study published late last year in the journal Translational Psychiatry indicated that N,N-dimethyltryptamine, the main active ingredient in ayahuasca, can aid in neuron development. Research is beginning to look at potential uses of the compound in treating PTSD and other mental issues.

In the end though, it goes much deeper than talk therapy or hypnotherapy could ever go, Fox said, calling the experience transformative.

“It just goes straight into your soul and it takes you to the psychological prison that you hold yourself in,” Fox said. “So it’s your own version of hell, and I was definitely there.”
