There are some roles that become memorable and define an actor for life. For Megan Fox, it was her performance in the first ‘Transformers’ movie that lifted her to stardom. Everyone who watched Megan Fox in Transformers would always remember the sweat-dripping sexy mechanic diva who went toe-to-toe with Shia LaBeouf in helping the transformers.
Born and brought up in Rockwood, Megan Fox is no slouch when it comes to acting. Her mind-twisting performances in the horror flick ‘Jennifer’s Body’ is a proof of her ability to bring any character to life on screen. For many people, she remains a ‘sex symbol’, but in reality, she is a woman of substance. She has always raised her voice against sexism, and even got into trouble for that, which we will read about later. But she is not ready to give up anytime soon.

Megan Fox’s Beliefs and Interests
Megan Fox hails from a family with strong religious roots. She was born as a Protestant Christian and went to a Catholic school. But later in her life, she stopped being a member of the church, but still remains spiritual.
Megan is a strong advocate for women’s right. In some way, her strong feminist beliefs have impacted her career in a bad way as they have alienated her from the mainstream film industry.
In stark contrast to her image as a sex symbol, Megan Fox considers herself to be asexual in real life. She has maintained that she only had a sexual relationship with her husband. She considers herself to be asocial and does not attend parties frequently. Her political views are generally liberal.
Megan Fox The Beginning
Born to Franklin Thomas Fox and Gloria Darlene, Megan Fox came into this world on May 16, 1986. Her parents divorced when she was very young, and she was brought up alongside her sister by her mother and stepfather Tony Tonachio. She was raised as a Protestant Christian under the strict guidance of her parents. Later, she went to a Catholic school where she was restricted to living a very conservative lifestyle.
Considering how she evolved as one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood, it is hard to imagine her not being a party girl in her teenage years. Despite the religious restrictions, she got herself involved in other activities like singing and dancing. Due to her immense beauty, she also received modelling assignments during her younger years.
Despite the fact that she was so successful in her early years, she faced a lot of bullying at school. Later in her life, she has even confessed that other girls did not like her because they thought she was too aggressive and popular amongst boys. This is one amongst the many reasons why she left school and joined correspondence in Los Angeles, California. As soon as Megan Fox started earning enough money through modelling assignments, she decided to live on her own. Her move to Hollywood was an instant success.
Megan Fox’s Career
Megan Fox started her career with a bang. She played the role of Brianna Wallace, a spoiled brat, in the movie ‘Holiday in the Sun’. Although it was not a major lead role, the movie got her the attention that every young movie actor desires. It opened her doors to popular TV shows like ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘What I Like About’.
Around this time, she got an offer to play the role of an extra in a popular Will Smith movie. She was only 15 at the time, and she was asked to dance around in a bikini under a waterfall in the movie ‘Bad Boys II’. In her later life, she mentioned this ‘extra role’ as the prime example of objectification of women. It became a hot topic of debate on social media and many vouched for Megan in bringing this incident to light.
Controversies aside, Megan Fox movies were doing well and she was progressing quickly in her career. She landed another popular role in the Lindsay Lohan starring movie ‘Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen’. It won her rave reviews for her performance, and her stock amongst the teenage crowd started to rise.
Then came the defining moment. She got to play the role of Mikaela Banes in the movie ‘Transformers’. Her sizzling beauty became the topic of discussion across the globe. Men could not get enough of her, and women could not stop to envy her. It was the movie that got her much fame and recognition including nomination for Teen Choice Awards and MTV Movie Award.
She reprised the role of Mikaela in the second instalment of the franchise called ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’. Megan Fox on Transformers has maintained a mixed stance in terms of success and controversy. The movie grabbed media attention because there was a controversy about the director Michael Bay asking Megan to increase her weight by almost 10 pounds. The controversy died down, but it was just the tip of the iceberg.
Life Beyond Transformers
Eventually, it became known that there was something much worse going on between the crew of Transformers and Megan. In a Jimmy Kimmel show, she alleged that Michael Bay was like Hitler. She was asked to apologies for the comment, but she was too headstrong and self-righteous to do that. Hence, her career in Transformers came to an end, and she was replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Around the same time, she gave one of her best performances (which was not appreciated at that time) in the movie ‘Jenifer’s Body’ in 2009. This horror comedy was probably the best portrayal of her acting skills. Although the movie did not do well at the box office, it later earned accolades as a forgotten feminist classic. But just like the good, there were some bad roles as well. In 2010, she starred in the movie ‘Passion Play’. It was one of the worst movies of her entire career, and even her co-star Mickey Rourke described the film as terrible. After that, she got a few small roles including a cameo in ‘The Dictator’ and ‘This Is 40’.
Reconciliation with Michael Bay
In 2013, she made up with Michael Bay and starred as April O’Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The movie was a success and brought her back into the limelight. She also starred in the sequel and even got to star in a Korean action movie ‘The Battle of Jangsari’

Megan Fox’s Personal Quotes
I grew up craving the spotlight, and once it happened, I immediately recoiled.
When you become a celebrity, the world owns you and your image.
I think that I’m so psychotic and so mentally ill that if I could tap into that I could do something really interesting.
I’m smart and I can be really funny and interesting and I can go toe-to-toe with anybody in a conversation.
I think I’m a different kind of role model for young girls.
