Out bisexual actor Megan Fox is fully aware that her sometimes seductive roles can lead to a sexual awakening for many viewers, and she is OK with that — especially if it helps queer girls come out of the closet.

In an interview with the New York Post, Fox says her acting career has fulfilled its purpose, even "If my purpose on Earth was to help one girl come out of the closet," she said.

"I can't tell you how many girls, from 30 down into their teens — or, f*ck that, my age, too — come up to me and are like, 'I realized I was gay because of you,' or 'I felt comfortable coming out because of you,' because of 'Jennifer's Body' and the interviews I did about being bisexual before it was cool," Fox told the New York Post.

Fox, who stars in Netflix's vampire film "Night Teeth," celebrated Pride this year by posting a photo of her rainbow manicure and confirming her bisexuality. She captioned the photo with: "Putting the B in #LGBTQIA for over two decades."

About connecting with queer viewers, Fox said, "That's something that's so important to me, that I'm so proud of." And lately, arm-and-arm with her boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly, Fox is living in her moment.

"I'm so happy in this moment of my life," Fox said. "That's something I didn't get when I was younger. I wish I had been more present. I've learned to just appreciate the moment I'm in."

"Night Teeth" is available to stream on Netflix now.
