Megan Denise Fox (born May 16, 1986) is an American actress. She began her acting career in 2001 with several minor television and film roles, and played a recurring role on Hope and Faith. In 2004, she launched her film career with a role in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. In 2007, she was cast as Mikaela Banes, the love interest of Shia LaBeouf's character in the blockbuster film Transformers which became her breakout role and earned her various Teen Choice Awards nominations. Fox reprised her role in the 2009 sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Later in 2009, she starred as the titular lead character in the film Jennifer's Body.

Fox is considered a sex symbol and frequently appears in men's magazine "Hot" lists. She was listed #18, #16, and #2 on Maxim magazine's yearly Hot 100 list in 2007, 2008 and 2009 respectively, while FHM readers voted her the "Sexiest Woman in the World" in 2008. She ranked number one on Moviefone's "The 25 Hottest Actors Under 25" in 2008. In 2004, Fox began dating Brian Austin Green, of Beverly Hills 90210 fame, after reportedly having met on the set of Hope and Faith. The two have since been in an on-and-off relationship.

Fox is of Irish, French and Native American ancestry and was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee to Darlene Tonachio and Franklin Foxx, who dropped an "x" from his surname. She has one older sister. Fox's parents divorced when she was young and she and her sister were raised by her mother and her stepfather. She said that the two were "very strict" and that she wasn't allowed to have a boyfriend. She lived with her mother until she made enough money to support herself.

Fox began her training in drama and dance at age five, in Kingston, Tennessee. She attended a dance class at the community center there and was involved in Kingston Elementary School's chorus and the Kingston Clippers swim team. At 10 years of age, after moving to St. Petersburg, Florida, Fox continued her training. When she was 13 years old, Fox began modeling after winning several awards at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Fox attended Morningside Academy, a private Christian school, for her middle school years and finished her high school education at St. Lucie West Centennial High School, though at 17 she was tested out of school via correspondence.

Fox has spoken extensively of her time in education; that in middle school she was bullied and picked on and she ate lunch in the bathroom to avoid being "pelted with ketchup packets". She said that the problem was not her looks, but that she had "always gotten along better with boys" and that "rubbed some people the wrong way". Fox also said of high school that she was never popular and that "everyone hated me, and I was a total outcast, my friends were always guys, I have a very aggressive personality, and girls didn’t like me for that. I’ve had only one great girlfriend my whole life". In the same interview, she mentions that she hated school and has never been "a big believer in formal education" and that "the education I was getting seemed irrelevant. So, I was sort of checked out on that part of it".

At 16, Fox made her acting debut in the 2001 film Holiday in the Sun, as spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace and rival of Alex Stewart (Ashley Olsen). The film was released Direct-to-DVD on November 20, 2001. The following year, Fox landed the lead main role as Ione Star on the television series Ocean Ave. The series lasted two seasons, from 2002–2003 and Fox appeared in 122 one-hour-long episodes. Also in 2002, she guest-starred on What I Like About You, appearing in the episode "Like a Virgin (Kinda)". She was an uncredited extra in Bad Boys II in 2003. In 2004, Fox guest-starred on Two and a Half Men in the episode "Camel Filters and Pheromones". In the same year, Fox made her film debut in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen co-starring opposite Lindsay Lohan, playing the supporting role of Carla Santi, a rival of Lola (Lindsay Lohan). Again in 2004, Fox was cast in regular role on the ABC sitcom Hope & Faith, in which she portrayed Sydney Shanowski, replacing Nicole Paggi in the role. Fox appeared in 36 episodes from seasons 2 to 3, until the show was cancelled in 2006.

In 2007, Fox won the lead female role of Mikaela Banes in the 2007 live-action film Transformers, based on the toy and cartoon saga of the same name. Fox played the love interest of Shia LaBeouf's character Sam Witwicky. Fox was nominated for an MTV Movie Award in the category of "Breakthrough Performance", and was also nominated for three Teen Choice Awards, in the category of "Choice Movie Actress: Action Adventure", "Choice Movie: Breakout Female", and "Choice Movie: Liplock". Fox has signed on for two more Transformers sequels. In June 2007, Fox was cast in a minor role in How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, starring alongside Jeff Bridges, Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst. She portrayed Sophie Maes, a love interest of Sydney Young (Simon Pegg). The film premiered on October 3, 2008, but was considered a box-office failure. In 2008, Fox appeared alongside Rumer Willis as the character Lost in Whore. The film centers around a group of young hopeful teenagers who have come to Hollywood in the hopes of an acting career find that the business is harder than they had ever imagined. The film was released October 20, 2008.
Fox reprised her role as Mikaela Banes in the Transformer sequel,
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. There was some controversy surrounding Fox's appearance while filming the sequel of Transformers when Michael Bay, the movie's director, ordered the actress to gain 10 pounds. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen premiered on June 8, 2009 in Tokyo, Japan. The movie was released worldwide on June 24, 2009. Fox had her first lead role playing the title character in Jennifer's Body, written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody. She played Jennifer Check, a mean-girl cheerleader possessed by a demon who begins to feed off the boys in a Minnesota farming town.The film was released on September 18, 2009 and co-stars Amanda Seyfried and Adam Brody.

In April, 2009 Fox began filming Jonah Hex, in which she will portray Leila, a gun-wielding beauty and Jonah Hex's (Josh Brolin) love interest. The film, currently in production, is set to be released on June 18, 2010. The movie stars Josh Brolin and Will Arnett, and Fox described her role in the film as being a cameo. In early April, 2009 Fox signed on to star as the lead female role in the up-coming 2011 film The Crossing about a young couple who get caught up in a drug trafficking scheme during their vacation to Mexico. In March 2009 Variety reported that Fox was set to star as the lead role of Aspen Matthews in the film adaption of the comic books Fathom which she will also co-produce with Brian Austin Green. Fathom is currently in pre-production.

Hell yeah! Y did no one call me! I love her! SO MUCH!

OK, gotta cool off for a moment.:D

I love her, not very keen on her acting though, I like that she's so freaky, don't care if it's a stunt or not, she's entertaining.:) I can't wait to get Jennifer's Body Blu-Ray! The cover looks kinda cheap, but whatever lol
I ordered some shirts with custom made Jennifer's Body quotes. lol Can't wait!


06-12-09, 18:00
Besides the fact she can't act to save her life, she's interesting and VERY attractive.

She wears too much makeup usually, but I really like these two when it comes to event photos.

To me she is even prettier without makeup. This still probably has some, but it's natural. I've seen some of her at the airport with no makeup completely and she's striking.

I Loved Megan in Transformers <3 But im not a fan though

06-12-09, 18:55
I loved Megan in Jennifer's Body. She was very funny. And she's incredibly attractive.

06-12-09, 19:32
She is obviously attractive but a very bad actress. I'll have to see Jennifer's Body though, lots of people are suggesting it to me!

06-12-09, 19:35
I thought she did great in Jennifer's Body :p

11-12-09, 04:59
Omg, how did I miss this thread? I love Foxxy, I don't think she is a bad actress, she plays the roles she is given perfectly! I just think she needs a serious role that will show her potential.:)

Jennifer's Body is my fav film from her, I can't wait for the DVD.:D

11-12-09, 05:06
Megan Fox is a terrible actress and from what I've heard, a complete *****.

But God damn she's gorgeous.

Disclaimer: It's not that I don't like Megan Fox, I think she's just a hair away from overexposure. I get the impression she tries too hard to sell herself (or her publicists are trying too hard to sell her), and after a while all those photoshoots aren't so sexy after all. She also apparently lets fly far too much, we've all heard the weirdest quotes from her. She should lie low for a while and trade on her skills as an actress if she wants to be taken seriously. But still, looking forward to Jonah Hex as I'm a massive DC fan. Josh Brolin is excellent, but isn't he a little too old for Megan? :p

11-12-09, 10:40
She can't act to save her life and it's a shame for her because producers/directors always have her in "sexy" poses which end up looking stupid because she can't act, because she is attractive.

Ie her Transformers 2 entrance. Wtf.

She says some really stupid things as well..no offense.

Megan Fox on Her ‘Brian’ Tattoo”

I wouldn’t regret [my "Brian" tattoo] if we weren’t together. I can always have a kid and name him Brian. There are options.”
